Portillo's Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

OAK BROOK, Ill., Nov. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Portillo's Inc. ("Portillo's" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PTLO), the fast-casual restaurant concept known for its menu of Chicago-style favorites, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 24, 2023.

Michael Osanloo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Portillo's, said, "We delivered another quarter of profitable growth, highlighting the strength of our brand. Our new restaurants continue to perform well, and we're delivering solid results. With our consistent restaurant operations and ongoing execution of a disciplined development strategy, we feel great about our future. We're a growth company. We will continue to build fantastic restaurants, staffed with our amazing Team Members who create an unrivaled experience for our guests. It's that experience that sets Portillo's apart and keeps guests coming back."

Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter 2023 vs. Third Quarter 2022:

  • Total revenue increased 10.4% or $15.7 million to $166.8 million;
  • Same restaurant sales increased 3.9%;
  • Operating income increased $4.5 million to $15.1 million;
  • Net income increased $3.3 million to $6.5 million;
  • Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA* increased $7.8 million to $41.9 million; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased $5.7 million to $27.3 million.

*Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Please see definitions and the reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures in the accompanying financial information below.

Recent Developments and Trends

In the quarter ended September 24, 2023, we saw continued revenue growth and same restaurant sales growth. Total revenue grew 10.4% during the quarter ended September 24, 2023 and 12.8% for the three quarters ended September 24, 2023. Same-restaurant sales grew 3.9% during the quarter ended September 24, 2023, compared to 5.8% same-restaurant sales growth during the same quarter in 2022. Same-restaurant sales grew 6.1% during the three quarters ended September 24, 2023, compared to 5.2% same-restaurant sales growth during the three quarters ended September 25, 2022.

We believe unit growth is a key driver of shareholder value creation. During the quarter ended September 24, 2023, we opened two new restaurants, one restaurant in Arizona and our second location in Texas for a total of 78 restaurants, including a restaurant owned by C&O, of which Portillo's owns 50% of the equity. The one restaurant opened in the fourth quarter of 2022 and six restaurants opened during the three quarters ended September 24, 2023 positively impacted revenues by approximately $11.0 million and $31.5 million in the quarter and three quarters ended September 24, 2023, respectively. We opened one restaurant subsequent to September 24, 2023 and plan to open five additional restaurants in the fourth quarter of 2023.

In the quarter and three quarters ended September 24, 2023, we continued to see commodity inflation stabilize. Commodity inflation was 3.5% and 5.8% for the quarter and three quarters ended September 24, 2023, respectively, compared to 15.4% for both the quarter and three quarters ended September 25, 2022. For the quarter and three quarters ended September 24, 2023, we experienced a decline in labor expenses, as a percentage of revenue, compared to the quarter and three quarters ended September 25, 2022 primarily due to increases in revenue, partially offset by decreases in transactions, higher labor utilization and additional wage investments. During mid-January 2023 and at the beginning of May 2023, we increased certain menu prices to reflect a net approximate 2.0% and 3.0% price increase, respectively, to continue to combat inflationary cost pressures and progress towards our goal to improve Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA margins for fiscal 2023. We will continue to monitor our cost pressures, the competitive landscape as well as consumer sentiment to inform our pricing decisions in the coming quarters.

In the quarter ended September 24, 2023, operating income margin and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin improved versus prior year. We believe this improvement was the result of our ongoing efforts to deploy strategic pricing actions, elevate guest experiences, and implement operational efficiencies. The strength of our brand, the consistency of our operations, and the ongoing execution of a disciplined development strategy all support our business model. Further, we intend to continue to develop shareholder value through self-funded restaurant development and an ongoing focus on operations.

Review of Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter ended September 24, 2023 were $166.8 million compared to $151.1 million for the quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $15.7 million or 10.4%. The increase in revenues was primarily attributed to the opening of one restaurant in the fourth quarter of 2022 and six restaurants during the three quarters ended September 24, 2023 combined with an increase in our same-restaurant sales. New restaurants positively impacted revenues by approximately $11.0 million in the quarter ended September 24, 2023. Same-restaurant sales increased 3.9% during the third quarter ended September 24, 2023, which was attributable to an increase in average check of 7.4%, partially offset by a 3.5% decrease in transactions. The higher average check was driven by an approximate 9.1% increase in certain menu prices partially offset by product mix. For the purpose of calculating same-restaurant sales for September 24, 2023, sales for the 66 restaurants that were open for at least 24 full fiscal periods were included in the Comparable Restaurant Base (as defined in "Selected Operating Data" below).

Total restaurant operating expenses for the third quarter ended September 24, 2023 were $124.9 million compared to $117.0 million for the third quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $7.9 million or 6.7%. The increase in restaurant operating expenses was driven by the opening of one restaurant in the fourth quarter of 2022 and six restaurants during the three quarters ended September 24, 2023. Additionally, labor expense increases were also driven by incremental investments to support our team members, including annual rate increases, and higher variable-based compensation. Food, beverage and packaging costs were negatively impacted by a 3.5% increase in commodity prices, partially offset by lower third-party delivery commissions. Operating expenses increased due to an increase in credit card fees, utilities, and insurance.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 24, 2023 were $18.9 million compared to $18.1 million for the quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $0.8 million or 4.6%. This increase was primarily driven by increases in salaries, wages and benefits attributable to annual rate increases and the filling of open positions, partially offset by a decrease in professional fees and insurance expenses.

Operating income for the quarter ended September 24, 2023 was $15.1 million compared to $10.6 million for the quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $4.5 million or 42.6% due to the aforementioned increase in revenues, partially offset by the aforementioned increases in expenses and higher pre-opening expenses.

Net income for the third quarter ended September 24, 2023 was $6.5 million compared to net income of $3.2 million for the third quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $3.3 million or 104.7%. The increase in net income was primarily due to the aforementioned increase in operating income, decrease in interest expense of $0.5 million and an increase in interest income of $0.1 million partially offset by an increase in income tax expense of $1.6 million and a decrease in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment of $0.2 million. The $0.5 million decrease in interest expense was primarily driven by the improved lending terms associated with our 2023 Term Loan and 2023 Revolver Facility.

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA* for the third quarter ended September 24, 2023 was $41.9 million compared to $34.1 million for the third quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $7.8 million or 22.9%.

Adjusted EBITDA* for the third quarter ended September 24, 2023 was $27.3 million compared to $21.6 million for the third quarter ended September 25, 2022, an increase of $5.7 million or 26.2%.

*A reconciliation of Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and the nearest GAAP financial measure is included under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the accompanying financial information below.

Development Highlights

During the three quarters ended September 24, 2023, we opened a total of six restaurants in the Arizona, Florida, and Texas markets. Subsequent to September 24, 2023, we opened one additional restaurant, bringing our total restaurant count to 79, including a restaurant owned by C&O of which Portillo's owns 50% of the equity.

Retirement of Richard K. Lubin from the Board of Directors

Richard K. Lubin notified the Company's Board of Directors ("Board") of his intent to retire from the Board and Compensation Committee on October 30, 2023. His decision to retire from the Board is consistent with his decision earlier this year to transition to a senior advisory role at Berkshire Partners LLC.

Mr. Lubin has been a member of the Board since 2014, when Berkshire Partners LLC acquired the Company. The Company and the Board would like to thank Mr. Lubin for his many important contributions and his commitment to the Company during his tenure on the Board. Osanloo spoke highly of Lubin, noting "Richard has been such an asset to Portillo's. He is a great thought partner and overall terrific person, and I appreciate all he's done during his time here to support the Company. He certainly leaves some big shoes to fill. We wish him all the best as he begins this new chapter."

The following definitions apply to these terms as used in this release:

Same-Restaurant Sales - The change in same-restaurant sales is the percentage change in year-over-year revenue (excluding gift card breakage) for the Comparable Restaurant Base, excluding a restaurant that is owned by C&O. The Comparable Restaurant Base is defined as the number of restaurants open for at least 24 full fiscal periods. As of September 24, 2023 and September 25, 2022, there were 66 and 61 restaurants in our Comparable Restaurant Base, respectively.

A change in same-restaurant sales growth is the result of a change in restaurant transactions, average guest check, or a combination of the two. We gather daily sales data and regularly analyze the guest transaction counts and the mix of menu items sold to strategically evaluate menu pricing and demand. Measuring our same-restaurant sales growth allows management to evaluate the performance of our existing restaurant base. We believe this measure provides a consistent comparison of restaurant sales results and trends across periods within our core, established restaurant base, unaffected by results of restaurant openings and enables investors to better understand and evaluate the Company's historical and prospective operating performance.

Average Unit Volume ("AUV") - AUV is the total revenue (excluding gift card breakage) recognized in the Comparable Restaurant Base, including a restaurant that is owned by C&O, divided by the number of restaurants in the Comparable Restaurant Base, including C&O, by period.

This key performance indicator allows management to assess changes in consumer spending patterns at our restaurants and the overall performance of our restaurant base.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin - Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income and income taxes, adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing core operating performance as identified in the reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues, net. See also "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin - Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA is defined as revenue, less restaurant operating expenses, which include food, beverage and packaging costs, labor expenses, occupancy expenses and other operating expenses. Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA excludes corporate level expenses and depreciation and amortization on restaurant property and equipment. Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues, net. See also "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

For more information about the Company's Non-GAAP measures, how they are calculated and reconciled and why management believes that they are useful, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

PORTILLO'S INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin. Accordingly, these measures are not required by, nor presented in accordance with GAAP, but rather are supplemental measures of operating performance of our restaurants. You should be aware that these measures are not indicative of overall results for the Company and that Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not accrue directly to the benefit of stockholders because of corporate-level expenses excluded from such measures. These measures are supplemental measures of operating performance and our calculations thereof may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies. These measures are important measures to evaluate the performance and profitability of our restaurants, individually and in the aggregate, but also have important limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income and income taxes, adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing core operating performance as identified in the reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues, net.

We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin (i) to evaluate our operating results and the effectiveness of our business strategies, (ii) internally as benchmarks to compare our performance to that of our competitors and (iii) as factors in evaluating management's performance when determining incentive compensation.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are important measures of operating performance because they eliminate the impact of expenses that do not relate to our core operating performance.

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA is defined as revenue, less restaurant operating expenses, which include food, beverage and packaging costs, labor expenses, occupancy expenses and other operating expenses. Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA excludes corporate level expenses and depreciation and amortization on restaurant property and equipment. Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues, net.

We believe that Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin are important measures to evaluate the performance and profitability of our restaurants, individually and in the aggregate.
