___________________________
(1) Operating Earnings Per Share represents diluted earnings per share from continuing operations on a GAAP basis excluding gains or losses on the sale of company-operated restaurants, restructuring charges, the non-cash impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in fiscal year 2018, and the excess tax benefits from share-based compensation arrangements which are now recorded as a component of income tax expense versus equity prior to fiscal year 2018. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results."

Adjusted EBITDA(2), a non-GAAP measure, was $61.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with $60.3 million for the prior year quarter.

Lenny Comma, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "Our greater emphasis on bundled value in the second quarter resulted in a sequential improvement in traffic and sales without sacrificing restaurant margins. We’re pleased that this momentum has accelerated through the first four weeks of our third quarter as same-store sales have increased by more than two percent. Our guests are responding favorably to our promotional line-up which leverages our strategy around compelling value bundles, including both new product innovation as well as guest favorites, without devaluing our core menu items.

"Our long-term goals are centered around meeting evolving consumer needs, with emphasis on improving operations consistency and targeted investments designed to maximize our returns. We remain focused on balancing the interests of all our stakeholders, including our franchisees, customers, employees and shareholders."

System 0.2% (0.1)% 0.0% (0.2)%

Jack in the Box ® system same-store sales increased 0.2 percent for the quarter. Company same-store sales increased 0.6 percent in the second quarter driven by average check growth of 2.8 percent, partially offset by a 2.2 percent decrease in transactions.

_____________________________
(2) Adjusted EBITDA represents net earnings on a GAAP basis excluding earnings or losses from discontinued operations, income taxes, interest expense, net, gains or losses on the sale of company-operated restaurants, impairment and other charges, net, depreciation and amortization, and the amortization of franchise tenant improvement allowances. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results."

Restaurant-Level Margin(3), a non-GAAP measure, increased by 120 basis points to 27.6 percent of company restaurant sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 from 26.4 percent a year ago. The increase was due primarily to the benefit of refranchising and lower maintenance and repairs expenses, partially offset by wage and commodity inflation. Food and packaging costs, as a percentage of company restaurant sales, decreased 30 basis points in the quarter as menu price increases and favorable product mix offset higher ingredient costs. Commodity costs increased 0.7 percent in the quarter as compared with the prior year.

Effective fiscal 2019, the company adopted the new US GAAP revenue recognition standard (Topic 606) using the modified retrospective method, and therefore no prior periods have been restated. The new revenue standard resulted in an increase to franchise revenues and a corresponding increase to franchise expenses primarily related to the reclassification of marketing fees received from franchisees. In addition, certain amounts previously netted in general and administrative expenses are now reflected as franchise revenues and expenses. Although the prior year results have not been restated for the impact of this accounting change, a reconciliation to a recast statement of earnings is included within the "Supplemental Information" section of this release.

Also effective fiscal 2019, the company adopted the new US GAAP pension standard (Topic 715) and began presenting certain pension cost components in Other pension and post-retirement expenses, net in its condensed consolidated statements of earnings. The prior year condensed consolidated statement of earnings was adjusted to conform with this new presentation.

Franchise-Level Margin(3), a non-GAAP measure, as a percentage of total franchise revenues, was 41.7 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. This compared with 59.8 percent in the prior year quarter, or 41.6 percent using recast 2018 figures as though Topic 606 had been applied retrospectively to the prior year.

_____________________________
(3) Restaurant-Level Margin and Franchise-Level Margin are non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures are reconciled to earnings from operations, the most comparable GAAP measure, in the attachment to this release. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results."

SG&A expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased by $9.0 million and were 8.2 percent of revenues compared with 12.7 percent in the prior year quarter, or 10.4 percent using recast 2018 figures. Advertising costs, which are included in SG&A, were $3.9 million in the second quarter compared with $7.3 million in the prior year quarter. The $3.4 million decrease in advertising costs was due to a $1.9 million decrease resulting from refranchising, and a decrease of $1.5 million resulting from incremental spending in the prior year quarter. The $5.6 million decrease in G&A excluding advertising was primarily driven by:

  • mark-to-market adjustments on investments supporting the company's non-qualified retirement plans resulting in a $3.8 million year-over-year decrease in G&A;
  • a $1.1 million decrease related to technology fees and costs netted in G&A in the prior year, which are now reflected as franchise revenues and expenses in the condensed consolidated statement of earnings in 2019;
  • a $0.9 million decrease due primarily to workforce reductions related to refranchising; and
  • a $0.8 million increase in transition services income as compared to the prior year resulting from the sale of Qdoba, which was reflected as a reduction to G&A.
  • These decreases were partially offset by a $1.0 million increase in insurance costs; and
  • a $0.6 million increase in bonus.

As a percentage of system-wide sales, G&A, which excludes advertising, was 1.7 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with 2.4 percent in the 2018 quarter, or 2.3 percent using recast 2018 figures.

Restructuring charges of $0.9 million, or approximately $0.03 per diluted share, were recorded during the second quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily related to severance costs and the company's evaluation of strategic alternatives, compared with $2.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. Restructuring charges are included in Impairment and other charges, net in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of earnings. Including these charges, Impairment and other charges, net, decreased in the second quarter to $1.1 million from $4.9 million in the year ago quarter.

Interest expense, net, increased by $2.9 million in the second quarter due in part to a higher effective interest rate for 2019. In addition, the increase resulted from the allocation of $1.6 million of interest expense to Qdoba in the second quarter of 2018, which was included in discontinued operations.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act"), enacted into law on December 22, 2017, reduced the statutory federal rate from 35 percent to 21 percent as of January 1, 2018. The tax rate reduction was phased in, resulting in a blended statutory federal tax rate of 24.5 percent for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. In addition, the Tax Act resulted in a non-cash increase to the provision for income taxes of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 related primarily to the revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities at the new lower rates. This revaluation was based upon estimates and interpretations of the Tax Act which were refined as further guidance was issued. The statutory federal tax rate for fiscal year 2019 is 21.0 percent. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2019 of 25.0 percent benefited from favorable mark-to-market adjustments on investments supporting the company's non-qualified retirement plans.

Qdoba Discontinued Operations

In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, the company entered into a definitive agreement to sell Qdoba, a wholly owned subsidiary of the company, to certain funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC. The transaction closed on March 21, 2018, and operating results for Qdoba are included in discontinued operations for all periods presented. However, the company did not allocate any general and administrative shared services expenses to discontinued operations prior to the sale.

Capital Allocation

The company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The company currently has approximately $101.0 million remaining under stock-buyback programs authorized by its Board of Directors that expire in November 2019.

The company also announced today that on May 9, 2019, its Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.40 per share on the company's common stock. The dividend is payable on June 14, 2019, to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 29, 2019.

Guidance

Updated from prior guidance:

  • SG&A as a percentage of revenues of approximately 8.5 to 9.0 percent, which reflects the new revenue recognition standards.
