Fogo de Chão, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

DALLAS, Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fogo de Chão, Inc. (NASDAQ:FOGO) today reported financial results for its 13-week fiscal second quarter ended July 3, 2016.

Key Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2016 Include:

  • Total revenue was $69.6 million for the 13-week quarter ending July 3, 2016, which represents 2.0% growth over the same quarter last year or 4.2% growth on a constant currency basis(1).
  • Company-owned comparable restaurant sales decreased 1.6% on a constant currency basis.
  • GAAP net income was $6.2 million compared to $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted net income(2)was $6.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share.
  • Announced the partnership with Enany Group to open the first Fogo in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia which will be the Company’s second international joint venture restaurant.
  • Completed construction on our suburban Philadelphia location that opened in King of Prussia Town Center on July 21, 2016.

(1) In order to assess how the business performed in the current period, the Company has adjusted the prior period on a constant currency basis. Constant currency calculations compare results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. The Company compares the percent change in the results from one period to another period using constant currency to exclude the effects of foreign currency fluctuations.
(2) Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted net income is included in the accompanying financial data. See also "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

“We continue to drive positive traffic in the US this quarter, up 0.6%, and our traffic outpaced our peers by 310 and 150 basis points as reported on the Knapp Track High End Steakhouses and Blackbox Upscale/Fine Dining group indexes,” said Larry Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão, Inc. “In today’s softening sales environment, guests are placing greater emphasis on value, customization, variety and speed of service and we believe that our strategies are designed to deliver on these needs.”

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $69.6 million compared to $68.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. The $1.3 million increase is attributable to new restaurant locations opened in the last 12 months, partially offset by a $1.4 million negative foreign exchange impact. On a constant currency basis, revenues for the second quarter increased 4.2% over the same quarter last year. Company-owned comparable restaurant sales, which include both U.S. and Brazil restaurants, decreased 1.6%.

U.S. restaurant revenue increased 5.8% to $59.3 million in the second quarter of 2016 from $56.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to new restaurant locations opened in the last 12 months, partially offset by U.S. company-owned comparable restaurant sales decrease of 1.1%.

Brazil restaurant revenue was $10.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $12.1 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in revenue compared to last year was driven largely by a $1.4 million foreign exchange impact, and a comparable restaurant sales decrease of 4.0% as the recession in Brazil continues to impact guests. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, Brazil revenues for the second quarter decreased 4.3% over the prior year period on a constant currency basis.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2016 was $6.2 million, compared to $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2016 was $6.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $7.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2015 on a constant currency basis. A reconciliation between GAAP net income and adjusted net income is included in the accompanying financial data.

Development Update

In addition to the restaurant opening in the King of Prussia Town Center, the Company currently plans to open as many as five additional restaurants during the remainder of Fiscal 2016, including three company operated domestic restaurants and two international joint venture restaurants.

Fogo de Chão’s three planned company-owned U.S. restaurants will open in cities where the brand has already developed a strong guest base and experienced proven success.

Dunwoody, GA – Building on the success of Fogo’s Buckhead location, its second Atlanta-area restaurant will open just north of the city in Dunwoody, renowned for its premium shopping, high-end restaurants and hotels, and family-focused cultural festivals.

Dallas Uptown, TX – Located in the heart of Uptown Dallas, this second area location will open at the corner of McKinney and Routh. With its luxury residences and a vibrant shopping, entertainment and social scene, Uptown is a lively and unique Dallas destination.

Tysons, VA – Known as “America’s next great city,” Tysons is home to a broad assortment of shopping, fine dining and hotels, making it a global travel destination and the ideal spot for Fogo’s second location in greater Washington D.C.

The Company’s two international locations are planned with joint venture partner the Enany Group in Saudi Arabia, and The Lacador Group in Mexico City. These new developments represent a strategic execution of Fogo’s plans to grow its international expansion in key markets via qualified joint venture partnerships.

The company has four signed leases and one letter of intent for planned 2017 and 2018 company owned locations.

As of July 3, 2016, the Company operated 41 company-owned restaurants, ten of which are in Brazil, and one joint venture restaurant in Mexico City.

Investors are reminded that the actual number and timing of new restaurant openings is subject to a number of factors outside of the Company's control including, but not limited to, weather conditions and factors under the control of landlords, contractors and regulatory/licensing authorities.

2016 Outlook

Given the external volatility, and the effect it can have on the Company’s small comp base, the Company is adjusting its guidance to cautiously reflect today’s softening sales environment. Updated outlook is as follows:

Updated:

  • Total revenue of $281 million to $285 million (previously $290 million to $294 million), exchange rate of 3.66 (previously assuming 3.84 Brazilian reais to 1 US dollar in the original guidance);
  • Company-owned comparable restaurant sales of -1.5% to -2.5% (previously 0% to 1%);
  • Restaurant contribution margin of 30.0% to 31.0% (previously 31.0% to 31.5%);
  • Diluted net income per share(3) is expected to range between $0.85 and $0.89 (previously $0.93 and $0.96).

Unchanged:

  • Opening as many as five to six restaurants including one international joint venture restaurant; and
  • Capital expenditures of $28 million to $32 million;
  • Pre-opening expenses of $3.4 million to $4.0 million;
  • Depreciation expense of $14.7 million to $15.2 million;
  • General and administrative expenses of $20 million to $21 million; and
  • Tax rate of 32% to 33%.

(3) Adjusted diluted net income per share is a non-GAAP measure. The guidance includes current year adjustments included in the reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted net income in the accompanying financial data. See also "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

(a) As exchange rates are an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons, we believe the presentation of certain results on a constant currency basis in addition to reported results helps improve investors’ ability to understand our operating results and evaluate our performance in comparison to prior periods. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. We use results on a constant currency basis as one measure to evaluate our performance. We calculate constant currency by retranslating results across all prior periods presented using a derived exchange rate for the most current year periods presented based on actual results. The tables set forth below calculate constant currency at a foreign currency exchange rate of 3.4961 and 3.6654 Brazilian reais to 1 US dollar, which represents the derived exchange rate for the thirteen week and twenty-six week periods ended July 3, 2016, respectively, calculated as explained above. These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with GAAP. Results on a constant currency basis, as we present them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not measures of performance presented in accordance with GAAP.
