Mark S. Mednansky, Chief Executive Officer of Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc., said, "We did not deliver the fourth quarter performance that we had projected and that our shareholders deserve. The earnings shortfall reflects our overestimation of Del Frisco's Grille sales and margin contributions to our fourth quarter consolidated results. We have been updating the Del Frisco's Grille training program, recipes, cooking methods, kitchen preparation times and technology to improve speed of service and reduce labor costs. In addition, we are using the time until our next Grille opening to refine and solidify initiatives that we began implementing during the fourth quarter. We know that we can do better with regards to managing the transition from honeymoon to normalization, shortening the period of new opening inefficiencies, and generating higher operating margins at our more established restaurants. In fact, we are pleased to report that our initial efforts are already paying off so far in the first quarter in lowering overall food and labor costs as well as stabilizing sales trends at restaurants in their post-honeymoon periods. We firmly believe that we can work through these near-term issues which in no way detract from our confidence in the long-term potential of this concept."

Mednansky continued, "Del Frisco's Double Eagle remains a leader with positive comparable restaurant sales in every quarter over the past five years, a tenured operating team, and strong cost controls that have consistently yielded among the highest restaurant-level EBITDA margins in the industry. We are very encouraged that our new Washington, DC location has been so warmly received by guests and restaurant critics alike."

Mednansky continued, "Sullivan's continues to gain traction from our 'four-point plan' as evidenced by three consecutive quarters of positive comparable restaurant sales and continued restaurant-level EBITDA margin expansion. The powerful combination of dedicated leadership, menu enhancements, fine-tuned messaging, and updated facilities have stabilized the brand and our intention this year is to reap further upside from our revitalization efforts."

Mednansky concluded, "Del Frisco's Restaurant Group continues to be one of the growth leaders in our industry. We achieved 18% unit growth in 2013, 15% in 2014, and are projecting 15% growth in 2015 based upon seven new restaurants. Our six Del Frisco's Grille openings will be in existing and new markets, reflecting the variety of high-quality real estate being made available to us, while our Orlando Del Frisco's Double Eagle will open close to the Convention Center. We are already working diligently on 2016 development, which will include one Del Frisco's Double Eagle relocation, at least one additional Del Frisco's Double Eagle, along with ongoing development of Del Frisco's Grille."

Review of Fourth Quarter 2014 Operating Results

Consolidated revenues increased $8.4 million, or 8.6%, to $105.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $97.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Total operating weeks were 712 compared to 640. The fourth quarter of 2013 included both an additional 17th fiscal operating week as well as a high-indexing New Year's Eve.

Due to the 53rd week in the 2013 fiscal year, there is a one-week calendar shift in the comparison of the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 to the fiscal fourth quarter of 2013. On a comparable calendar basis and normalized for New Year's Eve during the prior year, total comparable restaurant sales increased 2.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014 following a total comparable restaurant sales increase of 2.8% in the fourth quarter of 2013. Total comparable restaurant sales, on a calendar basis without adjusting for New Year's Eve, increased 1.0% across all three concepts. On a fiscal quarter basis, unadjusted for the calendar shift and excluding the 17th week in the fourth quarter of 2013, sales in the same restaurants increased 2.3%.

Cost of sales increased $2.5 million, or 8.4%, to $32.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $29.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, cost of sales improved slightly to 30.2% from 30.3%.

Restaurant-level EBITDA** increased $1.5 million, or 6.4%, to $24.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $23.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, restaurant-level EBITDA decreased to 23.3% from 23.8%.

General and administrative costs increased $1.0 million, or 19.3%, to $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. This net increase was due to growth in corporate level personnel to support recent and anticipated growth along with increased management education expenses. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, general and administrative costs increased to 5.9% from 5.4%.

Net income in the fourth quarter of 2014 was $5.5 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $4.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted net income*, a non-GAAP measure, was $8.3 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $8.6 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of the previous year.

Segment Results

We operate the Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, Sullivan's Steakhouse, and Del Frisco's Grille brands as operating segments.

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House

  • Revenues increased $3.0 million, or 5.8%, to $53.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $51.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Comparable restaurant sales, normalized for New Year's Eve during the prior year, increased 4.8% for the 16-week period ended December 30, 2014 compared to the 16-week period ended December 31, 2013. Sales for the same restaurants in the fourth fiscal quarter ended December 30, 2014, unadjusted for the calendar shift, increased 4.9% compared to the 16-week period ended December 24, 2013 (the 17th operating week ended December 31, 2013 in the fourth quarter of 2013 is excluded from this calculation). The increase in comparable restaurant sales was driven by a 2.1% increase in customer counts and a 2.8% increase in average check. Operating weeks increased slightly to 175 from 170 as a result of the restaurant opening in Washington, DC partially offset by one less fiscal week during 2014.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** increased 2.6%, or $0.4 million, to $15.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 (16-weeks) from $15.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 (17-weeks). As a percentage of revenue, restaurant-level EBITDA decreased to 29.1% from 30.1% as the brand incurred higher cost of sales and restaurant-level costs as a percentage of revenues.

Sullivan's Steakhouse

  • Revenues decreased $1.5 million, or 5.2%, to $27.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $28.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 due to 19 fewer operating weeks during 2014. Comparable restaurant sales, normalized for New Year's Eve during the prior year, increased 1.8% for the 16-week period ended December 30, 2014 compared to the 16-week period ended December 31, 2013. Sales for the same restaurants in the fourth fiscal quarter ended December 30, 2014, unadjusted for the calendar shift, increased 1.7% compared to the 16-week period ended December 24, 2013 (the additional 17th operating week ended December 31, 2013 in the fourth quarter of 2013 is excluded from this calculation). The increase in comparable restaurant sales was driven by a 7.5% increase in average check, offset by a 5.8% decrease in customer counts. A significant amount of the customer count reduction related to the removal of certain discounted bar menu items that resulted in a favorable mix shift increasing average check. Operating weeks decreased from 323 to 304 due to one less fiscal week during 2014.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** increased 9.2%, or $0.5 million to $5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 (16-weeks) from $5.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 (17-weeks), as the brand experienced lower cost of sales, restaurant operating expenses, and marketing and advertising costs as a percentage of revenues.

Del Frisco's Grille

  • Revenues increased 39.3%, or $6.9 million, to $24.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $17.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to 86 additional operating weeks (to 233 from 147) resulting from three restaurant openings during the fourth quarter of 2013 and five restaurant openings during the 2014 fiscal year and partially offset by one less fiscal week during 2014.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** increased 21.7%, or $0.6 million, to $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to the aforementioned operating week growth and lower cost of sales as a percentage of revenues which was partially offset by higher restaurant operating expenses and marketing and advertising costs as a percentage of revenues.

Development

We opened a Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in Washington, DC and three Del Frisco's Grille locations in North Bethesda, MD; Tampa, FL; and Pasadena, CA during the fourth quarter of 2014.

For the 2015 fiscal year, we plan to open seven restaurants, including one Del Frisco's Double Eagle and six Del Frisco's Grille locations. Restaurant development will begin at the end of the second quarter with one opening while the remaining restaurants will open in the third and fourth quarters. The Del Frisco's Double Eagle will be situated on International Drive in Orlando, FL near the Orlando Convention Center. We also anticipate building Del Frisco's Grille restaurants in Little Rock, AR; Cherry Creek, CO; Stamford, CT; Hoboken, NJ; Plano and The Woodlands, TX.

While it is premature to provide a specific range of new restaurant openings for the 2016 fiscal year at this time, we will be relocating the Del Frisco's Double Eagle from North Dallas to McKinney & Olive in Dallas' Uptown, as part of the luxury 530,000-square-foot office and retail tower next to The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences. We will also be opening at least one additional Del Frisco's Double Eagle notwithstanding our development plans for Del Frisco's Grille during 2016.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures and Segment Information

We prepare our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Within our press release, we make reference to non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income and Restaurant-level EBITDA. Adjusted Net Income represents pre-tax income from operations plus the sum non-cash impairment charges, secondary public offering costs, and the public offering transaction bonuses, minus income tax expense at an effective tax rate of 30%. We believe that this measure represents a useful internal measure of performance as it excludes certain one-time expenditures associated with our public offerings. Restaurant-level EBITDA is calculated by adding back to operating income depreciation and amortization plus the sum of certain non-operating expenses, including pre-opening costs, public offering expenses, public offering transaction bonuses, non-cash impairment charges, and general and administrative expenses. We believe that this measure also represents a useful internal measure of performance. Accordingly, we include these non-GAAP measures so that investors have the same financial data that management uses in evaluating performance, and we believe that it will assist the investment community in assessing our underlying performance on a quarter-over-quarter basis. However, because these measures are not determined in accordance with GAAP, such measures are susceptible to varying calculations and not all companies calculate these measures in the same manner. As a result, these measures as presented may not be directly comparable to a similarly titled measure presented by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are presented as supplemental information and not as alternatives to any GAAP measurements. The following tables include a reconciliation of pre-tax income from continuing operations to adjusted net income and a reconciliation of restaurant-level EBITDA to operating income:
