Portillo's Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2023 Financial Results

CHICAGO, Feb. 27, 2024 (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 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2023.

In 2023, we grew revenue and adjusted EBITDA by double-digits. We generated record operating cash flow. We opened 12 new restaurants. We ended the year with positive traffic and multi-year highs in guest satisfaction. We do this by building on what makes us great - impeccable operations and an excellent value proposition. This is our playbook. It's how we drive the kind of results you saw from us in 2023. And we're just getting started."

The additional week (the "53rd week") in the fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal 2023 included Christmas day, resulting in six operating days.
**For the fourth quarter 2023, same-restaurant sales compares the 14 weeks from September 25, 2023 through December 31, 2023 to the 14 weeks from September 26, 2022 through January 1, 2023. In order to compare like-for-like periods for the fourth quarter 2024, same-restaurant sales will compare the 13 weeks from September 30, 2024 through December 29, 2024 to the 13 weeks from October 2, 2023 through December 31, 2023.

****Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Please see definitions and the reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures accompanying this release.

53rd Week Impact

We use a 52- or 53-week fiscal year ending on the Sunday on or prior to December 31. The fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal year 2023 results include the favorable impact of a 53rd operating week, which affects all fourth quarter and full year comparisons to fiscal 2022. The additional week in the fourth quarter 2023 included Christmas Day, resulting in six operating days. The 53rd week resulted in the following impacts in 2023:

  • Total revenue includes an impact of approximately $13.9 million in both the fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal year 2023.
  • Operating income includes an impact of approximately $1.6 million in both the fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal year 2023.
  • Net income includes an impact of approximately $1.2 million in the fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal year 2023.
  • Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA includes an impact of approximately $3.5 million in both the fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal year 2023.
  • Adjusted EBITDA includes an impact of approximately $2.4 million in both the fourth quarter 2023 and fiscal year 2023.

Recent Developments and Trends

In the year ended December 31, 2023, we saw continued revenue growth and same-restaurant sales growth. Total revenue grew 15.8% during the year ended December 31, 2023. Same-restaurant sales grew 5.7% during the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to 5.4% during the year ended December 25, 2022. During the fourth quarter of 2023, total revenue grew 24.5% and same-restaurant sales increased 4.4% compared to same-restaurant sales growth of 6.0% for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2022.

We believe unit growth is a key driver of shareholder value creation. During the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023, we opened six and 12 new restaurants, respectively, bringing our total restaurant count to 84, including a restaurant owned by C&O, of which Portillo's owns 50% of the equity. In fiscal 2023 we opened new restaurants in the Arizona, Florida, Illinois, and Texas markets. We made significant strides in Texas with the opening of four new restaurants in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. The one restaurant opened in the fourth quarter of 2022 and twelve new restaurants opened in fiscal 2023 positively impacted revenues in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 by approximately $16.9 million. The three restaurants opened in fiscal 2022 and twelve restaurants opened in fiscal 2023 positively impacted revenues by approximately $48.4 million in the year ended December 31, 2023.

In the fourth quarter and for the year ended December 31, 2023, we continued to see commodity inflation stabilize versus 2022 levels. Commodity inflation was 4.4% and 5.5% for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023, respectively, compared to 14.5% and 15.2% for the quarter and year ended December 25, 2022. For the year ended December 31, 2023, we experienced a decline in labor expenses, as a percentage of revenue, compared to the year ended December 25, 2022 primarily due to increases in revenue, partially offset by higher labor utilization and additional wage investments. We strategically offset these expenses through menu price increases and operational efficiencies.

In the year ended December 31, 2023, same-restaurant sales, operating income, net income, Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA all improved versus the prior year. We believe this improvement was the result of our ongoing efforts to deploy strategic pricing actions, elevate guest experiences, implement operational efficiencies, and grow our restaurant base.

In fiscal 2024, we expect our overall commodity inflation to stay consistent with recent trends and are currently estimating commodity inflation in the mid-single digits. Additionally, we do anticipate additional wage investments and are currently estimating mid-single digit wage inflation. We will continue to strategically offset these expense increases through menu price increases and operational efficiencies. During January of 2024, we increased certain menu prices by approximately 1.5%. 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.

We believe 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 operational excellence.

Review of Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 were $187.9 million compared to $150.9 million for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $37.0 million or 24.5%. The increase is inclusive of the favorable impact of the 53rd week, which resulted in incremental revenue of $13.9 million. The increase in revenues was primarily attributed to the opening of new restaurants, combined with an increase in our same-restaurant sales in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023. Twelve new restaurants opened in the year ended December 31, 2023 and one restaurant opened in the fourth quarter of 2022 positively impacted revenues in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 by approximately $16.9 million. Same-restaurant sales increased 4.4% during the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023, which was attributable to an increase in average check of 3.1% and a 1.3% increase in transactions. The higher average check was driven by an approximate 6.0% increase in certain menu prices partially offset by product mix. For the purpose of calculating same-restaurant sales for December 31, 2023, sales for 68 restaurants were included in the Comparable Restaurant Base (as defined below) as of the end of fiscal 2023.

Total restaurant operating expenses for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 were $142.1 million compared to $118.8 million for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $23.3 million or 19.6%. The increase in restaurant operating expenses was driven by the opening of twelve new restaurants in the year ended December 31, 2023 and one restaurant opened in the fourth quarter of 2022. Additionally, food, beverage and packaging costs were negatively impacted by a 4.4% increase in commodity prices, partially offset by lower third-party delivery commissions. Labor expense increases were also driven by incremental investments to support our team members, including annual rate increases, and higher variable-based compensation. Operating expenses increased due to an increase in credit card fees, cleaning, utilities, and repair and maintenance, partially offset by a decrease in advertising and marketing expenses, operating supplies, and professional fees.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 were $21.6 million compared to $17.7 million for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $3.8 million or 21.7%. This increase was primarily driven by higher variable-based compensation, higher advertising expenses, increases in salaries, wages and benefits attributable to annual rate increases and the filling of open positions, partially offset by a decrease in equity-based compensation and insurance.

Operating income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $14.5 million compared to $6.4 million for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $8.0 million due to the aforementioned increase in revenues, partially offset by an increase in the aforementioned expenses.

Net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $9.6 million compared to $2.7 million for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $7.0 million. The increase in net income was primarily due to the factors driving the aforementioned increase in operating income, a decrease in interest expense of $1.4 million, and an increase in interest income of $0.1 million. The increase was partially offset by an increase in income tax expense of $1.3 million and a decrease in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment of $1.2 million.

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA* for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $45.7 million compared to $32.0 million for the quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $13.7 million or 42.7%.

Adjusted EBITDA* for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023 was $26.1 million compared to $18.1 million for the quarter ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $8.1 million or 44.5%.

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

Review of Fiscal Year 2023 Financial Results

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023 were $679.9 million compared to $587.1 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $92.8 million or 15.8%. The increase is inclusive of the favorable impact of the 53rd week, which resulted in incremental revenue of $13.9 million. The increase in revenues was primarily attributed to the opening of new restaurants, combined with an increase in our same-restaurant sales. Twelve new restaurants opened in the year ended December 31, 2023 and three restaurants opened in 2022 positively impacting revenues in the year ended December 31, 2023 by approximately $48.4 million. Same-restaurant sales increased 5.7% during the year ended December 31, 2023, which was attributable to an increase in average check of 6.1%, partially offset by a 0.4% decline in transactions. The higher average check was driven by an approximate 8.5% increase in menu prices partially offset by product mix. For the purpose of calculating same-restaurant sales as of December 31, 2023, sales for 68 restaurants were included in the Comparable Restaurant Base (as defined below) as of the end of fiscal 2023.

Total restaurant operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2023 were $514.7 million compared to $454.6 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $60.1 million or 13.2%. The increase in restaurant operating expenses was driven by the opening of twelve new restaurants during the year ended December 31, 2023, and the opening of three restaurants in 2022. Additionally, food, beverage and packaging costs was negatively impacted by a 5.5% increase in commodity prices, partially offset by lower third-party delivery commissions.. Labor expense increases were also driven by incremental investments to support our team members, including rate increases, and higher variable-based compensation. Other operating expenses increased due to an increase in credit card fees, utilities, repair and maintenance expenses, and insurance, partially offset by a decrease in professional fees.

General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2023 were $78.8 million compared to $66.9 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $11.9 million or 17.9%. This increase was primarily driven by higher variable-based compensation, increases in salaries, wages and benefits attributable to annual rate increases and the filling of open positions, higher advertising and software licensing fees, partially offset by a decrease in insurance expenses and lower equity-based compensation expense.

Operating income for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $55.4 million compared to $41.3 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $14.2 million due to the aforementioned increase in revenues, partially offset by an increase in the aforementioned expenses.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $24.8 million compared to $17.2 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $7.7 million. The increase in net income was primarily due to the factors driving the aforementioned increase in operating income, a decrease in interest expense of $0.2 million, and an increase in interest income of $0.2 million, partially offset by the absence of a loss on debt extinguishment in the year ended December 25, 2022, a decrease in the Tax Receivable Agreement liability adjustment of $2.0 million, and an increase in income tax expense of $1.4 million.

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA* for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $165.2 million compared to $132.5 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $32.7 million or 24.7%.

Adjusted EBITDA* for the year ended December 31, 2023 was $102.3 million compared to $85.0 million for the year ended December 25, 2022, an increase of $17.3 million or 20.4%.

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

* Fiscal 2023 began on December 26, 2022.

In fiscal 2024, we are planning to open at least nine new restaurants. In 2025, we are targeting at least 12% new restaurant growth, and our long-term outlook is approximately 12% - 15% annual new restaurant growth. Our near-term restaurant growth strategy is focused on leveraging our proven unit economic model primarily in markets outside Chicagoland with favorable macro-economic tailwinds where we already have a presence. Particularly, our short-term focus continues to be in the Sunbelt, with growth across markets in Arizona, Texas, and Florida. Simultaneously, we will continue to fill-in Chicagoland and adjacent markets as opportunities come available.

Fiscal 2024 and Long-Term Outlook

For fiscal 2024, the Company is anticipating the following:

  • At least nine new restaurant openings
  • Commodity inflation ranging from 4% to 6%;
  • General and administrative expenses ranging from $85 million - $87 million;
  • Pre-opening expenses between $8.0 million - $9.0 million;
  • Capital expenditures between $90 million - $93 million.

The following long-term outlook does not constitute specific earnings guidance, but the Company believes these ranges to be achievable over the long term:

  • Restaurant unit growth ranging from 12% to 15%;
  • Same-restaurant sales growth in the low single digits;
  • Total revenue growth in the mid teens;
  • Adjusted EBITDA growth in the low teens*.

* A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA outlook cannot be provided without unreasonable effort. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for more information.

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

Change in 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, which is defined as the number of restaurants open for at least 24 full fiscal periods. For the years ended December 31, 2023 and December 25, 2022, there were 68 and 62 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 is the total revenue (excluding gift card breakage) recognized in the Comparable Restaurant Base, including 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.

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, Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA Margin 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 (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 total revenues.

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.

We are unable to reconcile the long-term outlook for Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, due to variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections and because not all information necessary to prepare the reconciliation is available to us without unreasonable efforts. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information because we cannot accurately predict all of the components of the adjusted calculations and the non-GAAP measure may be materially different than the GAAP measure.

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

Restaurant-Level Adjusted EBITDA is defined as revenue, less restaurant operating expenses, which include cost of goods sold (excluding depreciation and amortization), 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 revenue.

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.
