Panera Bread Company Reports Q2 2016 Results; Company-owned Comparable Net Bakery-Cafe Sales Increased 4.2%; Raises Mid-Point of FY 2016 Non-GAAP EPS Target

Panera Bread Company (PNRA) today reported financial results for fiscal Q2 2016.

HIGHLIGHTS

Q2 2016 Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales up 4.2%, up 6.6% on a two-year basis

Q3 2016 (first 27 days) Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales up 3.1%, up 7.8% on a two-year basis

-- Q2 2016 GAAP Diluted EPS of $1.46, down 9%

-- Q2 2016 Non-GAAP Diluted EPS (excluding refranchising charges) of $1.78, up 11%

Company raises mid-point of FY 2016 Non-GAAP EPS target; full year Non-GAAP Diluted EPS target range is now $6.60 to $6.70, up 6% to 8%

-- Company agrees to sell and refranchise Company-owned bakery-cafes in Canada

Ron Shaich, Chairman and CEO, commented, "Our strong Q2 results reinforce the fact that our strategy is working and our initiatives are performing. Panera is becoming a better competitive alternative with expanded runways for growth. At a time when other restaurant companies are feeling the impact of a slowing consumer environment, we are maintaining our momentum. One-year comps of 4.2% and two-year comps of 6.6% speak to the traction at Panera. As well, that momentum can be seen in the year-over-year growth in Q2 non-GAAP EPS, which excludes refranchising charges, which was up 11%. Most importantly, as our initiatives rollout, we can, with the benefit of significantly more robust and mature data, now more clearly see the potential that those initiatives represent for sustained earnings growth at Panera."

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Comparable Net Bakery-Cafe Sales Growth</span>

In fiscal Q2 2016, Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales increased 4.2%, franchise-operated comparable net bakery-cafe sales increased 0.6%, and system-wide comparable net bakery-cafe sales increased 2.3% compared to the same period in fiscal 2015. Two-year Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales increased 6.6%, two-year franchise-operated comparable net bakery-cafe sales increased 1.7%, and two-year system-wide comparable net bakery-cafe sales increased 4.1%.

The Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales increase of 4.2% in fiscal Q2 2016 was comprised of year-over-year transaction growth of 0.4% and average check growth of 3.8%. This represents the ninth consecutive quarter of transaction growth. A schedule of comparable net bakery-cafe sales information is attached to this release as Schedule III.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Bakery-Cafe Margin</span>

Bakery-cafe margin for fiscal Q2 2016 increased approximately 120 basis points versus fiscal Q2 2015. The increase was primarily driven by lower food cost due to improved leverage from higher comparable net bakery-cafe sales and benign food cost inflation, partially offset by structural wage increases and costs related to the startup and transition expenses associated with the Company’s strategic initiatives.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Operating Margin</span>

GAAP operating margin for fiscal Q2 2016 decreased approximately 150 basis points versus fiscal Q2 2015. Excluding charges related to the Company’s refranchising initiative in both fiscal periods, as outlined in Schedule IV, non-GAAP operating margin for fiscal Q2 2016 decreased approximately 50 basis points versus fiscal Q2 2015. The decrease was primarily the result of structural wage increases and costs related to the startup and transition expenses associated with the Company’s strategic initiatives, as well as a year-over-year increase in general and administrative expenses reflecting a legal reserve and higher incentive compensation due to improved year-over-year Company performance.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">New Bakery-Cafe Development and AWS</span>

During fiscal Q2 2016, the Company opened nine new bakery-cafes and its franchisees opened eight new bakery-cafes. As a result, there were 2,007 bakery-cafes open system-wide as of June 28, 2016.

Average weekly sales ("AWS") for Company-owned "Class of 2016" bakery-cafes through fiscal Q2 2016 was $52,256. AWS for franchise-operated "Class of 2016" bakery-cafes through fiscal Q2 2016 was $46,319.

A schedule of fiscal Q2 2016 AWS, including AWS information for bakery-cafes based on their designation as either a traditional or non-traditional bakery-cafe, is attached to this release as Schedule II. Non-traditional bakery-cafes refers to a range of alternate formats that the Company believes will allow it to more deeply penetrate existing and new territories.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Update on Refranchising and Canada Strategic Review</span>

On May 3, 2016, the Company completed the previously announced sale of 15 bakery-cafes in the Portland, Oregon, market to an existing franchisee, bringing the total number of refranchised bakery cafes since the start of fiscal 2015 to 90.

Today, the Company announced it has signed a definitive agreement to sell and refranchise 12 Company-owned bakery-cafes in Canada to a Canada-based franchisee with a long track record of success with US concepts. The Company anticipates this transaction to close by the end of fiscal Q3 2016. The Company expects the sale of these bakery-cafes to be accretive to ongoing earnings. This ongoing accretion was included in the Company’s full-year fiscal 2016 non-GAAP EPS target. A charge of $7.2 million related to the pending sale of these bakery-cafes was incurred in fiscal Q2 2016.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Update on Use of Capital</span>

On May 19, 2016, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a new three-year share repurchase authorization of up to $600 million and terminated the prior repurchase authorization. During fiscal Q2 2016, under the share repurchase authorizations, the Company repurchased 351,376 shares at an average price of $213.45 per share for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $75.0 million. The Company has approximately $572.7 million available under the current $600 million repurchase authorization as of fiscal Q2 2016.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Full Year Fiscal 2016 Outlook</span>

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Comparable Net Bakery-Cafe Sales Growth</span>

The Company announced today that Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales in the first 27 days of fiscal Q3 2016 were up 3.1% and were up 7.8% on a two-year basis.

The Company today reiterated its targeted range for fiscal 2016 Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales growth of 4.0% to 5.0%.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">New Bakery-Cafe Development and AWS</span>

The Company continues to expect 90 to 100 system-wide bakery-cafe openings in fiscal 2016 and is maintaining its average weekly net sales performance target for new Company-owned bakery-cafes of $45,000 to $47,000.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Non-GAAP Diluted EPS</span>

The Company today raised the mid-point of its full-year fiscal 2016 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share target. The Company is now targeting full-year fiscal 2016 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $6.60 to $6.70, up 6% to 8%, when compared to full-year fiscal 2015, excluding certain items in both fiscal years.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Non-GAAP Operating Margin</span>

For fiscal 2016, the Company continues to expect non-GAAP operating margin will be down 50 to 100 basis points when compared to fiscal 2015, excluding the impact of certain items in both fiscal years.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Forward-Looking Information</span>

This news release presents a non-GAAP diluted earnings per share growth target range and non-GAAP operating margin growth target range for fiscal 2016, when compared to fiscal 2015, which are financial measures not calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company excludes certain items from non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and operating margin, such as refranchising charges. A reconciliation of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and non-GAAP operating margin to the most comparable GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis is not available without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of these future charges and costs.

Notes:

The Company will host a conference call that will be broadcast on the Internet at 8:30 A.M. Eastern Time on Wednesday, July 27, 2016, to discuss the fiscal Q2 2016 results, preliminary comparable net bakery-cafe sales results for the first 27 days of fiscal Q3 2016, and earnings targets and business outlook for fiscal 2016. To access the call or view a copy of this release, go to http://www.panerabread.com/investor. Access to the call will be made available for 14 days, and the release will be archived for one year.

The Company includes in this release information on Company-owned, franchise-operated, and system-wide comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages. Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages are based on net sales from Company-owned bakery-cafes included in base store bakery-cafes. Franchise-operated comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages are based on net sales from franchised bakery-cafes, as reported by franchisees, that are included in base store bakery-cafes. Acquired Company-owned and franchise-operated bakery-cafes and other restaurant or bakery-cafe concepts are included in the Company’s comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages after it has acquired a 100 percent ownership interest and if such acquisition occurred prior to the first day of the Company’s prior fiscal year. Comparable net bakery-cafe sales exclude closed locations.

The Company does not record franchise-operated net bakery-cafe sales as revenues. However, royalty revenues are calculated based on a percentage of franchise-operated net bakery-cafe sales, as reported by franchisees. The Company uses franchise-operated and net system-wide sales information internally in connection with store development decisions, planning, and budgeting analyses. The Company believes franchise-operated and net system-wide sales information is useful in assessing consumer acceptance of its brand; facilitates an understanding of its financial performance and the overall direction and trends of sales and operating income; helps the Company appreciate the effectiveness of its advertising and marketing initiatives, which its franchisees also contribute to based on a percentage of their net sales; and provides information that is relevant for comparison within the industry.

About Panera Bread Company

Thirty years ago, at a time when quick service meant low quality, Panera set out to challenge this expectation. We believed that food that was good and that you could feel good about, served in a warm and welcoming environment by people who cared, could bring out the best in all of us. To us, that is food as it should be and that is why we exist.

So we began with a simple commitment: to bake fresh bread from fresh dough in every bakery-cafe, every day. No artificial preservatives or short cuts, just bakers with simple ingredients and hot ovens. Each night, any unsold bread and baked goods were shared with neighbors in need.

These traditions carry on today, as we have continued to find ways to be an ally to our guests. That means crafting a menu of soups, salads and sandwiches that we are proud to feed our families. Like poultry and pork raised without antibiotics on our salads and sandwiches. A commitment to transparency and options that empower our guests to eat the way they want. Seasonal flavors and whole grains. And a commitment to removing artificial additives (flavors, colors, sweeteners and preservatives) from the food in our bakery-cafes. Why? Because we think that simpler is better and we believe in serving food as it should be. Because when you don’t have to compromise to eat well, all that is left is the joy of eating.

We’re also focused on improving quality and convenience. With investments in technology and operations, we now offer new ways to enjoy your Panera favorites - like mobile ordering and Rapid Pick-Up for to-go orders - all designed to make things easier for our guests. As of June 28, 2016, there were 2,007 bakery-cafes in 46 states and in Ontario, Canada operating under the Panera Bread, Saint Louis Bread Co. or Paradise Bakery & Cafe names.

[a] Represents year-to-date bakery-cafe openings and AWS for fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015. Traditional bakery-cafes generally represent bakery-cafes opened in suburban geographies approximating our standard 4,200 square foot design. Non-traditional bakery-cafes reflect all other bakery-cafes including urban, small footprint formats, and delivery units. Because the non-traditional bakery-cafe designation covers various formats and the formats of non-traditional bakery-cafe openings may vary from period-to-period, comparing AWS for non-traditional bakery-cafes on a year-over-year basis may not be meaningful.

Schedule IV
PANERA BREAD COMPANY
Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Information
(in thousands, except per share information)
The Company uses non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and non-GAAP operating margin as key performance measures of results of operations for purposes of evaluating performance internally.
These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of its financial results in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the GAAP financial measures presented in this press release.
Rather, the Company believes that the presentation of results excluding certain items provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations, excluding items described below that the Company does not believe were indicative of its ongoing operations in the 13 and 26 weeks ended June 28, 2016 and June 30, 2015, respectively.
