Mark S. Mednansky, Chief Executive Officer of Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc., said, “While our fourth quarter results fell short of our expectations, we are executing the initiatives that we put in place during 2015 to improve guest engagement and their dining experience, refine brand messaging, and ensure flawless operations through a culture of accountability. We have more to accomplish but are encouraged by the progressive improvements we experienced during the fourth quarter and will build on that work in 2016.”

Mednansky concluded, “We were pleased with our class of 2015 Del Frisco’s Grilles but are slowing our development pace to just two or three Del Frisco’s Grille openings and one Del Frisco’s Double Eagle relocation this year. This is essential to help us realize our organizational objectives as it enables us to devote more time and resources to existing restaurants. We are also using this transitional period to fine-tune our site selection process and increase the potential return on investment at future Del Frisco’s Grille locations leveraging a less costly, smaller, and more efficient prototype. We believe that our work over the next four quarters will pay long-term dividends that will benefit all shareholders and position us for growth in 2017 and beyond.”

Segment Results
We operate the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, Sullivan’s Steakhouse, and Del Frisco’s Grille concepts as operating segments.

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House

  • Revenues increased 3.0%, or $1.6 million, to $55.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 from $53.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily due to an additional 17 operating weeks during the quarter (to 192 from 175), partially offset by a 1.6% decrease in comparable restaurant sales. The decline in comparable restaurant sales was comprised of a 2.4% decrease in customer counts, partially offset by a 0.8% increase in average check.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** increased 4.1%, or $0.6 million, to $16.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 from $15.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, restaurant-level EBITDA increased to 29.4% from 29.1% as the brand experienced lower cost of sales, which more than offset higher restaurant operating and marketing expenses.

Sullivan’s Steakhouse

  • Revenues decreased 5.0%, or $1.4 million, to $26.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 from $27.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. This decrease was due to 16 fewer operating weeks during the quarter (to 288 from 304) as a result of a restaurant closure in late May 2015, as well as a 1.8% decrease in comparable restaurant sales. The decline in comparable restaurant sales was comprised of a 2.1% decrease in customer counts, partially offset by a 0.3% increase in average check.

    Restaurant-level EBITDA** decreased 8.9%, or $0.5 million, to $5.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 from $5.5 million in the same period last year. As a percentage of revenues, restaurant-level EBITDA decreased to 19.4% from 20.2% as the brand experienced higher cost of sales, restaurant operating, and marketing expenses.

Del Frisco’s Grille

  • Revenues increased 32.5%, or $8.0 million, to $32.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 from $24.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily due to 102 additional net operating weeks (to 335 from 233) partially offset by a 4.5% decrease in comparable restaurant sales. The decline in comparable restaurant sales was comprised of a 0.7% decrease in customer counts and a 3.8% decrease in average check.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** increased 22.2%, or $0.8 million, to $4.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 from $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, restaurant-level EBITDA decreased to 13.0% from 14.1% as the brand experienced higher restaurant operating and marketing expenses, which was partially offset by improvement in cost of sales.

Outlook
The following statements are not guarantees of future performance, and therefore, undue reliance should not be placed upon them. We refer all of you to our recent filings with the SEC for a more detailed discussion of the risks that could impact future operating results and financial conditions.

Based upon current information, we are providing guidance for the 52-week fiscal year 2016, which ends on December 27, 2016.

  • Total comparable restaurant sales of 0% to 1.5%.
  • One Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House relocation and two to three Del Frisco’s Grille openings.
  • Cost of sales of 28.6% to 28.9% of consolidated revenues.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** of 21.0% to 21.3% of consolidated revenues.
  • General and Administrative expenses of approximately $25.0 million to $25.5 million.
  • Pre-opening expenses of approximately $3.0 million to $3.5 million.
  • Effective tax rate of approximately 30% to 32%.
  • Gross capital expenditures (before tenant allowances and inclusive of some expenditures related to 2017 openings) of $32.0 million to $35.0 million.
  • Annual adjusted net income* per diluted share between $0.83 and $0.86.

Development
We opened three Del Frisco’s Grilles in Little Rock, Arkansas; Hoboken, New Jersey and Cherry Creek, Colorado during the fourth quarter of 2015. We also closed Del Frisco Grille’s in Palm Beach, Florida and Phoenix, Arizona.

For fiscal year 2016, we will open two to three Del Frisco’s Grilles in Huntington, Long Island, New York and the Nashville, Tennessee metropolitan area. Early in the fourth quarter of 2016, we will be moving the Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in North Dallas to Uptown Dallas. Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House in North Dallas will continue to serve guests from its current location until the new restaurant is completed.

While it is premature to provide a specific range of new restaurant openings for fiscal year 2017 at this time, we will be opening one Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in Plano, Texas, in the Legacy West development on the NW Corner of Legacy and the Dallas North Tollway.

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, EPS and Restaurant-level EBITDA. Adjusted Net Income represents pre-tax income plus the sum of non-cash impairment charges, lease termination and closing costs, third party lease guarantees and secondary public offering costs, minus income tax expense at an effective tax rate of approximately 30%. We believe that this measure represents a useful internal measure of performance as it excludes certain one-time non-operation related expenditures. 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, non-cash impairment charges, lease termination and closing costs, 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 to adjusted net income and a reconciliation of restaurant-level EBITDA to operating income (dollar amounts in thousands):

Supplemental Information: Restaurants closed during 2015

In April 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU, 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. This ASU raised the threshold for a disposal to qualify as a discontinued operation and was effective for fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2014. Under this new guidance, the closures of one Sullivan’s (Denver, CO) and two Grilles (Palm Beach, FL and Phoenix, AZ) during 2015 did not qualify as discontinued operations.
