Domino's Pizza® Announces Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the largest pizza company in the world based on global retail sales, announced results for the second quarter. Global retail sales increased 5.7% in the second quarter, or 8.1% excluding foreign currency impact. Global retail sales in the second quarter were positively impacted by U.S. same store sales, but were negatively impacted by temporary store closures in certain international markets. U.S. same store sales grew 16.1% during the quarter versus the year-ago period and were positively impacted by customer ordering behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing the positive sales momentum in the Company's U.S. stores business. The international business also posted positive same store sales results, with growth of 1.3% during the quarter. The second quarter marked the 106th consecutive quarter of international same store sales growth and the 37th consecutive quarter of U.S. same store sales growth.

The Company had second quarter net store growth of 84 stores, comprised of 39 net new U.S. stores and 45 net new international stores. The number of temporary store closures in certain of the Company's international markets has declined from its peak of approximately 2,400 temporary closures. Based on information reported to the Company by its master franchisees, the Company estimates that as of July 8, 2020, there were fewer than 600 international stores temporarily closed.

Diluted EPS for the second quarter was $2.99, up 36.5% over the prior year quarter.

On July 15, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors declared a $0.78 per share quarterly dividend for shareholders of record as of September 15, 2020 to be paid on September 30, 2020.

"Our focus as a global brand and the commitment of our local operators remains steadfast on serving our customers and our communities with a convenient, affordable and safe food and service experience," said Ritch Allison, Domino's Chief Executive Officer. "I have never been more proud of our system of franchisees, operators and corporate team members for their continued passion and innovative spirit, which was evident during the second quarter."

  • Revenues increased $108.4 million, or 13.4%, in the second quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to higher global retail sales resulting from U.S. same store sales growth and an increase in U.S. store counts during the trailing four quarters, resulting in higher supply chain, U.S. franchise and U.S. Company-owned stores revenues. These increases in revenues were partially offset by lower international franchise revenues resulting from temporary store closures in certain of the Company's international markets due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as pressure from the negative impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
  • Net Income increased $26.3 million, or 28.5%, in the second quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily driven by higher income from operations resulting from increased U.S. franchise royalty revenues as well as higher supply chain margins and a lower effective tax rate as compared to the prior year quarter driven by higher tax benefits from equity-based compensation. The increase in net income was partially offset by lower international franchise revenues and higher net interest expense resulting from a higher average debt balance and borrowings under the Company's variable funding notes during the second quarter.
  • Diluted EPS was $2.99 for the second quarter of 2020 versus $2.19 in the prior year quarter. This represents a $0.80, or 36.5%, increase over the prior year quarter. The increase in diluted EPS was driven by higher net income, as well as lower diluted share count, primarily resulting from the Company's share repurchases during the trailing four quarters.

Liquidity and Use of Cash Update

As of June 14, 2020, the Company had approximately:

  • $248.0 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents;
  • $4.17 billion in total debt; and
  • $102.0 million of available borrowings under its $200.0 million variable funding notes, net of letters of credit issued of $40.0 million and borrowings outstanding of $58.0 million.

As previously disclosed, given the market uncertainty arising from COVID-19, the Company took a precautionary measure and borrowed $158.0 million under its variable funding notes during the second quarter of 2020. The Company repaid $100.0 million of these borrowings during the second quarter of 2020. Subsequent to the second quarter of 2020, the Company repaid an additional $15.0 million under its variable funding notes, and as of July 8, 2020, the Company had $117.0 million of available borrowings under its $200.0 million variable funding notes, net of letters of credit issued of $40.0 million and borrowings outstanding of $43.0 million.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $211.8 million during the two fiscal quarters of 2020. The Company invested $33.7 million in capital expenditures during the two fiscal quarters of 2020. Free cash flow, as reconciled below to net cash provided by operating activities, as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), was approximately $178.1 million during the two fiscal quarters of 2020 (refer to the Comments on Regulation G section below for additional details).

Investment in Dash Brands Ltd.

During the second quarter of 2020, a subsidiary of the Company acquired a non-controlling interest in Dash Brands Ltd., for $40.0 million. Dash Brands Ltd. is a privately-held company that, through its subsidiaries, serves as the Company's master franchisee in China that owns and operates Domino's Pizza stores in that market. The Company is contractually required to invest an additional $40.0 million in Dash Brands Ltd. in the first quarter of 2021, assuming certain performance conditions are satisfied. If such performance conditions are not satisfied, the Company has the option to make such investment in its discretion.

Comments on Regulation G

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, the Company has included non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G, including free cash flow metrics. The Company has also included metrics such as global retail sales, global retail sales growth, global retail sales growth, excluding foreign currency impact and same store sales growth, which are commonly used statistical measures in the quick-service restaurant industry that are important to understanding Company performance.

The Company uses "Global retail sales" to refer to total worldwide retail sales at Company-owned and franchise stores. The Company believes global retail sales information is useful in analyzing revenues because franchisees pay royalties and advertising fees that are based on a percentage of franchise retail sales. The Company reviews comparable industry global retail sales information to assess business trends and to track the growth of the Domino's Pizza® brand. In addition, supply chain revenues are directly impacted by changes in franchise retail sales. Retail sales for franchise stores are reported to the Company by its franchisees and are not included in Company revenues. "Global retail sales growth" is calculated as the change of U.S. Dollar global retail sales against the comparable period of the prior year. "Global retail sales growth, excluding foreign currency impact" is calculated as the change of international local currency global retail sales against the comparable period of the prior year.

The Company uses "Same store sales growth," which is calculated for a given period by including only sales from stores that had sales in the comparable weeks of both years. International same store sales growth is calculated similarly to U.S. same store sales growth. Changes in international same store sales are reported excluding foreign currency impacts, which reflect changes in international local currency sales.

The Company uses "Free cash flow," which is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures, both as reported under GAAP. The Company believes that the free cash flow measure is important to investors and other interested persons, and that such persons benefit from having a measure which communicates how much cash flow is available for working capital needs or to be used for repurchasing debt, making acquisitions, repurchasing common stock or paying dividends.
