Good Times Restaurants Inc. (NASDAQ: GTIM), today reported financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended September 29, 2020.

Key highlights of the Company’s financial results include:

  • Total Revenues decreased 0.9% to $28.5 million for the quarter and 0.8% to $109.9 million for the year
  • Total Restaurant Sales for Bad Daddy’s restaurants decreased 3.8% to $19.3 million for the quarter and 4.3% to $76.3 million for the year
  • Total Restaurant Sales for Good Times restaurants increased 6.3% for the quarter to $9.0 million and 9.0% to $32.8 million for the year
  • Same Store Sales for company-owned Bad Daddy’s restaurants decreased 12.2% for the quarter and decreased 17.7% for the year
  • Same Store Sales for company-owned Good Times restaurants increased 10.0% for the quarter and 7.9% for the year
  • Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders was $1.5 million for the quarter including $0.3 million of asset impairment costs
  • For the year, Net Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders was $13.9 million including $15.6 million of asset impairment costs and $1.0 million of preopening costs
  • Adjusted EBITDA* (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $2.9 million and $7.6 million for the year
  • The Company ended the quarter with $11.5 million in cash, a $5.5 million outstanding under its senior credit facility and $11.6 million outstanding in Paycheck Protection Program loans

Ryan M. Zink, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “In spite of very significant concerns about liquidity and operating cash flow at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, a combination of quick decision-making, teamwork, and CARES Act relief have enabled us to fight through the initial blows the pandemic hit us with, and conclude fiscal 2020 on a positive note, with improved unit economics, improved camaraderie and culture throughout the organization, and a modestly improved balance sheet compared to the end of fiscal 2019. Both of our concepts continue to outperform their respective segments within the industry, and our leadership team continues be creative and energetic, anticipating and adapting to changes in our business driven by a pandemic that will likely be with us for the foreseeable future. We are doing everything possible to ensure we continue to operate all of our restaurants safely and to the maximum extent allowed under each location’s respective regulatory guidance.”

“We expect to resume Bad Daddy’s development in the second half of fiscal 2021, developing the two remaining Bad Daddy’s leases signed in 2019 and beginning the search for our 2022 development pipeline. However, unlike our growth model in the past, we expect our future development rate to be more modest, growing primarily out of operating cash flow and at least initially, developing only a couple of restaurants per year as we make a firm commitment to financial discipline and growing from a strong balance sheet with a minimal debt load.”

Fiscal 2021 Outlook:

Due to continuing unprecedented economic conditions associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and unpredictable nature of COVID-19 and government responses to the evolving situation, the Company had previously withdrawn its prior financial outlook for fiscal 2020 and has not provided a financial outlook for 2021. In late November 2020, all twelve of the Company’s Bad Daddy’s locations in Colorado had additional restrictions imposed upon them resulting in the closure of dining rooms in those locations. The removal of those restrictions will be dictated by specific metrics related to the pandemic used by the State of Colorado in determining such restrictions. The Company is unable to reasonably predict when inside dining will again be allowed in its Colorado Bad Daddy’s restaurants. Additionally, although no other states have at this time similarly restricted inside dining where the Company has Bad Daddy’s restaurants, the possibility remains that such restrictions might be put in place with limited notice. At the current time, the Company is therefore still unable to reasonably estimate the full impact of the continuing pandemic and, beyond providing the below updates on October and November sales and a projection of Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA for the first fiscal quarter, is unable to provide a financial outlook for fiscal 2021.

Consolidated net income and adjusted EBITDA for the first fiscal quarter 2021 are projected to be between $0.4 million and $0.6 million, and between $1.5 million and $1.7 million, respectively. The estimate for Adjusted EBITDA includes assumptions of approximately $1.0 million of depreciation and amortization expense, $0.1 million of interest expense, $0.1 million of non-cash stock compensation expense, and ($0.1) million of non-cash rent expense, to be used in reconciling to consolidated net income.

*For a reconciliation of restaurant level operating profit and Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP and a discussion of why the Company considers them useful, see the financial information schedules accompanying this release.

Certain percentage amounts in the table above do not total due to rounding as well as the fact that restaurant operating costs are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues (as opposed to total revenues).

The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important measure for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure includes restaurant-level occupancy costs, which includes fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs, but excludes depreciation. The measure excludes depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant level assets, because such expenses represent historical sunk costs which do not reflect current cash outlay for the restaurants. The measure also excludes selling, general and administrative costs, and therefore excludes occupancy costs associated with selling, general and administrative functions, and pre-opening costs. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment costs are excluded, because similar to depreciation and amortization, they represent a non-cash charge for the Company’s investment in its restaurants and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations. Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or net income as indicators of financial performance. Restaurant-level operating profit as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The tables above set forth certain unaudited information for the current and prior year fiscal quarters and year-to-date periods for fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, except for the components of restaurant operating costs, which are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations, as determined by GAAP, and our calculation thereof may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. This measure is presented because we believe that investors' understanding of our performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for evaluating our ongoing results of operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income (loss) before interest expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization and further adjustments to reflect the additions and eliminations presented in the table above.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because: (i) we believe it is a useful measure for investors to assess the operating performance of our business without the effect of non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization expenses and asset disposals, closure costs and restaurant impairments, and (ii) we use adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark for certain of our cash incentive plans and to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure permits a comparative assessment of our operating performance relative to our performance based on our GAAP results, while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. Companies within our industry exhibit significant variations with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense and income tax rates) and differences in book depreciation of property, plant and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. Our management believes that adjusted EBITDA facilitates company-to-company comparisons within our industry by eliminating some of these foregoing variations. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies, and our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by excluded or unusual items.
