The Cheesecake Factory Reports Record Revenues in the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2021 and Provides Business Update

Generated $109 million in cash flow from operations

Third quarter-to-date through July 26th comparable sales at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased 10% over 2019 levels

CALABASAS HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated (NASDAQ: CAKE) today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, which ended on June 29, 2021.

Total revenues were $769.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $295.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Net income available to common stockholders and diluted net income per common share were $17.1 million and $0.37, respectively, in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

During the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company recorded $11.4 million in non-cash acquisition-related contingent consideration and amortization expense primarily associated with the amendment to the Fox Restaurant Concepts (“FRC”) acquisition agreement, including the extension of the earn-out period through 2026. Excluding the after-tax impact of this item, the termination of the Company’s interest rate swap agreement and reflecting the then potential impact of the conversion of the Company’s convertible preferred stock into common stock for the period that it was outstanding during the quarter prior to the repurchase and conversion on June 15, 2021, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $43.9 million and $0.80, respectively. Please see the Company’s reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures at the end of this press release.

Comparable restaurant sales at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased 150.0% year-over-year in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Relative to the second quarter of fiscal 2019, comparable restaurant sales at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased 7.8%.

As of today, nearly all of the Company’s restaurants across its concepts are operating with no indoor dining restrictions. Fiscal 2021 third quarter-to-date through July 26th comparable sales for The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased approximately 61% year-over-year and 10% relative to the same period in fiscal 2019, supported by approximately 27% off-premise sales mix. Based on average weekly sales quarter-to-date of approximately $230,000, this equates to nearly $12 million on average, per unit on an annualized basis. Off-premise average weekly sales are about double the level seen during the same period in fiscal 2019.

“We had a tremendous second quarter, driving record revenues and strong cash flow,” said David Overton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “When we reflect on where we were a year ago during the depths of COVID-19, we are so proud of our team’s accomplishments that have driven our recovery. Comparable sales at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants far outpaced pre-COVID levels during the second quarter and we leveraged the sales to drive solid bottom line performance. Sales across our concepts further strengthened early in the third quarter as nearly all of our restaurants are now operating with no indoor dining restrictions. Additionally, we opened three new restaurants during the second quarter and with our most recent opening last week, we are on track to meet our development objective to open as many as 14 new restaurants across our concepts this year.”

Development

During the second quarter of fiscal 2021, two North Italia restaurants opened in Miami and San Antonio, Flower Child opened in Atlanta, and one Cheesecake Factory restaurant opened internationally in Shanghai under a licensing agreement. Subsequent to quarter-end, a second North Italia opened in the Nashville area.

Balance Sheet & Cash Flow

During the second quarter, the Company generated $108.8 million in cash flow from operating activities.

As of June 29, 2021, the Company had total available liquidity of $401.9 million, including a cash balance of $161.8 million and availability on its revolving credit facility of $240.1 million. Total principal amount of debt outstanding was $475 million, including $345 million of 0.375% convertible senior notes due 2026 issued during the second quarter and $130 million drawn on the Company’s revolving credit facility following the previously announced $150 million repayment during the second quarter.

The Company also completed the offering of 3.125 million shares of common stock during the second quarter of fiscal 2021. As previously disclosed, the Company used the net proceeds from the convertible senior note and common stock offerings to fund approximately $457.4 million payable in connection with the repurchase of 150,000 shares of its previously outstanding convertible preferred stock and the conversion of the remaining 50,000 shares of convertible preferred stock into approximately 2.4 million shares of the Company’s common stock, which simplified the Company’s capital structure and eliminated future convertible preferred dividends. For GAAP accounting purposes, $13.6 million of the total consideration paid was deemed to be an assumed dividend during the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Conference Call and Webcast

The Company will hold a conference call to review its results for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time. The conference call will be webcast live on the Company’s website at investors.thecheesecakefactory.com and a replay of the webcast will be available through August 26, 2021.

The unamortized issuance costs were recorded as a contra-liability and netted with long-term debt on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and were being amortized as interest expense.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Results to GAAP Results

In addition to the results provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) in this press release, the Company is providing non-GAAP measurements which present net income and net income per share excluding the impact of certain items. The non-GAAP measurements are intended to supplement the presentation of the Company’s financial results in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures are calculated by eliminating from net income and diluted net income per share the impact of items the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operations. To reflect the then potential impact of the conversion of the Company’s convertible preferred stock into common stock for the period that it was outstanding prior to the repurchase and conversion on June 15, 2021, the Company excludes the preferred dividend and assumes all convertible preferred shares convert to common stock. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons.

(4) Represents changes in the fair value of the deferred consideration and contingent consideration and compensation liabilities related to the North and FRC acquisition, as well as amortization of acquired definite-lived licensing agreements.

Uncertain tax positions taken in a tax return are recognized in the financial statements when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination by tax authorities based on its technical merits, taking into account available administrative remedies and litigation.
(6) Based on the federal statutory rate and an estimated blended state tax rate, the tax effect on all adjustments assumes a 26% tax rate for the fiscal 2021 and 2020 periods.
(7) Represents the impact of assuming the conversion of Series A preferred stock into common stock (8,126,001 and 8,862,280 shares for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2021, respectively), resulting in an assumption of 54,902,770 and 54,837,353 weighted-average common shares outstanding for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2021, respectively. The impact of assuming the conversion of Series A preferred stock into common stock (7,019,521 and 3,509,761 shares for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2020, respectively), resulting in an assumption of 50,893,967 and 47,333,583 weighted-average common shares outstanding for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2020, respectively.
(8) Adjusted net income per share may not add due to rounding.
