Chili's

  • Chili's Company sales increased due to dining room sales growth from higher traffic, price increases, favorable mix and the acquisition of 66 restaurants in fiscal 2022 previously owned by franchisees.
  • Chili's Company restaurant expenses, as a percentage of Company sales, increased primarily due to increased restaurant labor costs including wage rates, training and overtime as well as higher commodity costs, utilities expenses and repairs and maintenance expenses. These increases were partially offset by sales leverage and favorable menu pricing.

Maggiano's

  • Maggiano's Company sales increased due to higher dining room and banquet sales.
  • Maggiano's Company restaurant expenses, as a percentage of Company sales, decreased primarily due to sales leverage and increased menu pricing, partially offset by higher restaurant labor costs, commodity pricing and other operational expenses.

Income Taxes

  • On a GAAP basis, the effective income tax rate was 5.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 which is lower than the statutory rate of 21.0% due to leverage of the FICA tip tax credit. Excluding the impact of special items, the effective income tax rate was 7.9% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022.

Mix-Shift is calculated as the year-over-year percentage change in Company sales resulting from the change in menu items ordered by guests. 

(3)        

Chili's and Maggiano's franchise sales generated by franchisees are not included in Total revenues in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Unaudited); however, we generate royalty revenues and advertising fees based on franchisee revenues, where applicable. We believe presenting Franchise Comparable Restaurant Sales provides investors relevant information regarding total brand performance.

(4)         

Chili's and Maggiano's domestic Comparable Restaurant Sales percentages are derived from sales generated by Company-owned and franchise-operated Chili's and Maggiano's restaurants in the United States. Beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the Maggiano's franchise restaurant has been in operation for more than 18 months and is therefore included in the calculation of Comparable Restaurant Sales.

(5)       

System-wide Comparable Restaurant Sales are derived from sales generated by Chili's and Maggiano's Company-owned and franchise-operated restaurants.

Reconciliation of Net Income Excluding Special Items (in millions, except per share amounts)

Restaurant operating margin is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to operating income as an indicator of financial performance. Restaurant operating margin is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance of ongoing restaurant-level operations. This non-GAAP measure is not indicative of overall Company performance and profitability because this measure does not directly accrue benefit to the shareholders due to the nature of costs excluded.

We define Restaurant operating margin as Company sales less Food and beverage costs, Restaurant labor and Restaurant expenses. We believe this metric provides a more useful comparison between periods and enables investors to focus on the performance of restaurant-level operations by excluding revenues not related to food and beverage sales at Company-owned restaurants, corporate General and administrative expenses, Depreciation and amortization, and Other (gains) and charges. Restaurant operating margin as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies in our industry.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA (in millions)

Brinker believes presenting Adjusted EBITDA provides a useful measure of our operating performance, excluding the impacts of financing costs, capital expenditures and special items. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation. We define Adjusted EBITDA as Operating income before Depreciation and amortization and Other (gains) and charges.
