Domino's Pizza® Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Strong Fundamentals Continue to Drive Strong Sales, Store Count and EPS Growth

ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, today announced results for the second quarter of 2016, comprised of growth in same store sales, global store counts and diluted earnings per share. Domestic same store sales grew 9.7% during the quarter versus the year-ago period, continuing the 21-quarter positive sales momentum in the U.S. business. The international division also posted strong results with quarterly same store sales growth of 7.1%, marking the 90th consecutive quarter of international same store sales growth. The Company had global net store growth of 244 stores in the quarter, and 1,011 net new stores over the trailing four quarters.

Domino's

Diluted EPS was 98 cents for the second quarter, which was up 21.0% over the Company's diluted EPS in the prior year quarter. During the quarter, the Company repurchased 1,845,126 shares of its common stock for approximately $224.1 million. The Board of Directors also declared a 38-cent per share quarterly dividend for shareholders of record as of September 15, 2016, to be paid on September 30, 2016.

J. Patrick Doyle, Domino's President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "I am pleased with our impressive top and bottom line results during the second quarter, and the performance of our franchisees in the U.S. and across the globe. The business continued to progress in a very positive direction."

  • Revenues were up 12.0% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, due primarily to higher supply chain revenues from increased volumes and store growth. Increased domestic franchise and Company-owned store revenues and higher international revenues resulting from both same store sales and store count growth also contributed to this increase.
  • Net Income increased 7.3% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, due primarily to higher consolidated operating margins driven by the increase in sales and store growth. Higher general and administrative expenses and higher interest expense as a result of the Company's 2015 recapitalization partially offset this increase.
  • Diluted EPS was 98 cents for the second quarter versus 81 cents in the prior year quarter. This represents a 17-cent or 21.0% increase over the prior year quarter. This increase was driven by the aforementioned operating results as well as lower diluted share counts, primarily as a result of the share repurchases made during the trailing four quarters.

 


The table below outlines certain statistical measures utilized by the Company to analyze its performance.  Refer to the Comments on Regulation G section on page three for additional details.

Comments on Regulation G

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, the Company has included the free cash flow non-GAAP financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G. The Company has also included metrics such as global retail sales growth 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 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.

The Company uses "Same store sales growth," which is calculated by including only sales from stores that also had sales in the comparable period of the prior year. International same store sales growth is calculated similarly to domestic 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 cash flows from operations 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, paying dividends or other similar uses of cash.
