THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY INCORPORATED

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

1.  Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated and its wholly owned subsidiaries (referred to herein collectively as the “Company,” “we,” “us” and “our”) prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). All intercompany accounts and transactions for the periods presented have been eliminated in consolidation. The unaudited financial statements presented herein include all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair statement of the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the period. However, these results are not necessarily indicative of results that may be achieved for any other interim period or for the full fiscal year. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted pursuant to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2018 filed with the SEC on February 28, 2018.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions for the reporting periods covered by the financial statements. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

We utilize a 52/53-week fiscal year ending on the Tuesday closest to December 31 for financial reporting purposes. Fiscal 2018 consists of 52 weeks and will end on January 1, 2019. Fiscal 2017, which ended on January 2, 2018, was also a 52-week year.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance on the recognition and measurement of leases. Under the new standard, lessees are required to recognize a lease liability, which represents the discounted obligation to make future minimum lease payments, and a corresponding right-of-use asset on the balance sheet for most leases. The guidance does not make significant changes to the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows by a lessee. The standard requires certain qualitative and quantitative disclosures about the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. This guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and requires a modified retrospective approach. We plan to utilize the alternative transition method, which permits a company to use its effective date as the date of initial application without restating comparative financial statements. We also plan to elect the transition package of three practical expedients permitted within the standard, which among other things, allows the carryforward of historical lease classifications, and we are further evaluating other optional practical expedients and policy elections. Although early adoption is permitted, we will adopt these provisions in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. We expect this adoption will result in a material increase in the assets and liabilities on our consolidated balance sheets, but will likely have an insignificant impact on our net income. In preparation for the adoption of the guidance, we have implemented key system changes and are in the process of updating controls to enable the preparation of the required financial information.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued accounting guidance that requires implementation costs incurred by customers in cloud computing arrangements to be deferred and recognized over the term of the arrangement if those costs would be capitalized by the customer in a software licensing arrangement under the current internal-use software standard. This guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and early adoption is permitted. We implemented this guidance on a prospective basis in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 and, as a result, capitalized $0.2 million of implementation costs during that period.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued accounting guidance that provides a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that supersedes most of the existing revenue recognition requirements and requires entities to recognize revenue at an amount that reflects the consideration to which a company expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer. We implemented this standard as of the first day of fiscal 2018, and the only impact to our condensed consolidated financial statements relates to recognition of development and site fees from our international licensees. Utilizing the cumulative-effect method of adoption, we recorded a $4.8 million increase to deferred revenue and a corresponding reduction of $3.6 million, net of tax, to retained earnings to reverse a portion of the previously recognized fees. Whereas previously we recognized income and received payment upon execution of the agreements and approval of new restaurant sites, respectively, future revenue for these items will be recorded on a straight-line basis over the life of the applicable license agreements as the agreements do not contain distinct performance obligations. Comparative financial information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods.

Table of Contents

 

The impact of adopting this standard as compared to the previous revenue recognition guidance was not material to our condensed consolidated balance sheet and condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Our revenues consist of sales at our Company-owned restaurants, sales from our bakery operations to our licensees and other third-party customers, royalties from our licensees’ restaurant sales and from consumer packaged goods sales, and licensee development and site fees.

 

Revenues from restaurant sales are recognized when payment is tendered at the point of sale. Revenues from bakery sales are recognized upon transfer of title and risk to customers. Royalty revenues are recognized in the period the related sales occur, utilizing the sale-based royalty exception available under current accounting guidance. Development and site fees are recognized as revenue over the life of the applicable agreements, ranging from eight to 30 years. In the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018, we deferred revenue of $0.2 million for new site agreements. There were no new development agreements executed during the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018. We recognized combined development and site fee revenue of $0.1 million and $0.3 million during the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018, respectively.

 

We recognize a liability upon the sale of our gift cards and recognize revenue when these gift cards are redeemed in our restaurants. Based on our historical redemption patterns, we can reasonably estimate the amount of gift cards for which redemption is remote, which is referred to as “breakage.” Breakage is recognized over a three-year period in proportion to historical redemption trends and is classified as revenues in our consolidated statements of income. Incremental direct costs related to gift card sales, including commissions and credit card fees, are deferred and recognized in earnings in the same pattern as the related gift card revenue.

 

Certain of our promotional programs include multiple element arrangements that incorporate various performance obligations. We allocate revenue using the relative selling price of each performance obligation considering the likelihood of redemption and recognize revenue upon satisfaction of each performance obligation. During the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018, there were no new multiple element arrangements requiring deferral. We recognized $5.9 million of previously deferred revenue related to promotional programs during the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018.

 

Revenues are presented net of sales taxes. Sales tax collected is included in other accrued expenses until the taxes are remitted to the appropriate taxing authorities.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Lease Terminations

 

We assess the potential impairment of our long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of the assets or asset group may not be recoverable. Factors considered include, but are not limited to, significant underperformance relative to historical or projected future operating results, significant changes in the manner in which an asset is being used, an expectation that an asset will be disposed of significantly before the end of its previously estimated useful life and significant negative industry or economic trends. We regularly review restaurants that are cash flow negative for the previous four quarters and those that are being considered for closure or relocation to determine if impairment testing is warranted. At any given time, we may be monitoring a small number of locations, and future impairment charges could be required if individual restaurant performance does not improve or we make the decision to close or relocate a restaurant.

 

We recorded $0.3 million and $2.8 million of lease termination costs in the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 related to the closure of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant. We recorded $1.2 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 3, 2017 of accelerated depreciation and impairment expense related to the relocation of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant and the lease expiration of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”), which was enacted on December 22, 2017, made significant changes to how corporations are taxed in the U.S., the most prominent of which affecting us was to lower the U.S. statutory corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. We believe we have properly estimated our federal and state income tax liabilities, and our accounting for the income tax effects of the Tax Act has been completed. However, given the amount and complexity of the changes in tax law resulting from the Tax Act, we continue to analyze the effects of the Tax Act on our income tax provision. We may make further refinements to our calculations considering technical guidance that may be published and changes to current interpretations of certain provisions of the Tax Act. Any impacts to our provision as the result of additional guidance will be recorded in the period in which the guidance is issued.

4.  Long-Term Debt

 

We maintain a $200 million unsecured revolving credit facility (“Facility”), $50 million of which may be used for issuances of letters of credit. Availability under the Facility is reduced by outstanding letters of credit, which are used to support our self-insurance programs. The Facility, which matures on December 22, 2020, contains a commitment increase feature that could provide for an additional $100 million in available credit upon our request and subject to the participating lenders electing to increase their commitments or new lenders being added to the Facility. Certain of our material subsidiaries guarantee our obligations under the Facility. During the first three quarters of fiscal 2018, we utilized the Facility to fund a portion of our stock repurchases. At October 2, 2018, we had net availability for borrowings of $159.3 million, based on a $20.0 million outstanding debt balance and $20.7 million in standby letters of credit.

 

We are subject to certain financial covenants under the Facility requiring us to maintain (i) a maximum “Net Adjusted Leverage Ratio” of 4.0 and (ii) a minimum EBITDAR (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and rent) to interest and rental expense ratio (“EBITDAR Ratio”) of 1.9, with each of the capitalized terms in this Note 4 having the same meaning as defined in the Facility. The Facility limits cash distributions with respect to our equity interests, such as cash dividends and share repurchases, based on a defined ratio, and also sets forth negative covenants that restrict indebtedness, liens, investments, sales of assets, fundamental changes and other matters. Our Net Adjusted Leverage and EBITDAR Ratios were 3.0 and 2.6, respectively, at October 2, 2018, and we were in compliance with all covenants in effect at that date.

 

Borrowings under the Facility bear interest, at our option, at a rate per annum equal to either (i) the Adjusted LIBO Rate plus a margin ranging from 1.00% to 1.75% based on our Net Adjusted Leverage Ratio or (ii) the sum of (a) the highest of (1) the rate of interest publicly announced by JPMorgan Chase Bank as its prime rate in effect, (2) the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate or the Overnight Bank Funding Rate, in either case plus 0.5%, and (3) the one-month Adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1.0%, plus (b) a margin ranging from 0.00% to 0.75% based on our Net Adjusted Leverage Ratio. We also pay customary fees on the unused portion of the Facility and on our outstanding letters of credit.

5. Commitments and Contingencies

 

On November 26, 2014, a former hourly restaurant employee filed a class action lawsuit in the San Diego County Superior Court, alleging that the Company violated the California Labor Code and California Business and Professions Code, by failing to pay overtime, to permit required rest breaks and to provide accurate wage statements, among other claims (Masters v. The Cheesecake Factory Restaurants, Inc., et al.; Case No 37-2014-00040278). The lawsuit seeks unspecified penalties under California Private Attorneys’ General Act (“PAGA”) in addition to other monetary payments. By stipulation, the parties agreed to transfer Case No. 37-2014-00040278 to the Orange County Superior Court. On March 2, 2015, Case No. 37-2014-00040278 was officially transferred and assigned a new Case No. 30-2015-00775529 in the Orange County Superior Court. On June 27, 2016, we gave notice to the court that Case Nos. CIV1504091 and BC603620 described below may be related. On February 13, 2018, the parties in Case No. 30-2015-00775529 reached a tentative settlement subject to documentation and court approval. Based upon the current status of this matter, we have reserved an immaterial amount.

 

On May 21, 2018, a lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging similar claims to Case No. 30-2015-00775529 (Silva v. The Cheesecake Factory Restaurants, Inc., et al.; Case No. BC706365). On July 5, 2018, we notified the court that Case No. BC706365 and Case No. 30-2015-00775529 may be related. The plaintiff in Case No. BC70365 seeks unspecified penalties under PAGA in addition to other monetary payments. We intend to vigorously defend this action. However, it is not possible at this time to reasonably estimate the outcome of or any potential liability from this matter and, accordingly, we have not reserved for any potential future payments

 

On May 28, 2015, a group of current and former hourly restaurant employees filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, alleging that the Company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Code, by requiring employees to purchase uniforms for work and violated the State of New York’s minimum wage and overtime provisions (Guglielmo v. The Cheesecake Factory Restaurants, Inc., et al; Case No. 2:15-CV-03117). On September 8, 2015, the Company filed its response to the complaint, requesting the court to compel arbitration against opt-in plaintiffs with valid arbitration agreements. On July 21, 2016, the court issued an order confirming the agreement of the parties to dismiss all class claims with prejudice and to allow the case to proceed as a collective action covering a limited number of the Company’s restaurants in the State of New York.  On February 21, 2018, the parties reached a tentative settlement subject to documentation and court approval. Based upon the current status of this matter, we have reserved an immaterial amount.

 

On December 10, 2015, a former restaurant management employee filed a class action lawsuit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging that the Company improperly classified its managerial employees, failed to pay overtime, and failed to provide accurate wage statements, in addition to other claims. The lawsuit seeks unspecified penalties under PAGA in addition to other monetary payments (Tagalogon v. The Cheesecake Factory Restaurants, Inc.; Case No. BC603620). On March 23, 2016, the parties issued their joint status conference statement at which time we gave notice to the court that Case Nos. 30-2015-00775529 and CIV1504091 may be related. On April 29, 2016, the Company filed its response to the complaint. We intend to vigorously defend this action. However, it is not possible at this time to reasonably estimate the outcome of or any potential liability from this matter and, accordingly, we have not reserved for any potential future payments.

 

On July 12, 2017, a lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court alleging that the Company violated California’s unfair business practices statute by improperly calculating suggested gratuity amounts on split payment transactions (Goldman v. The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated; Case No. BC668334). On December 1, 2017, the Company filed a demurrer to the plaintiff’s complaint. The plaintiff filed his opposition on December 26, 2017. On March 27, 2018, the Court sustained the demurrer without leave to amend as to six of the seven causes of action in the complaint. We intend to vigorously defend this action. However, it is not possible at this time to reasonably estimate the outcome of or any potential liability from this matter and, accordingly, we have not reserved for any potential future payments.

 

On June 22, 2018, the Internal Revenue Service issued a Notice of Deficiency in which they disallowed $8.0 million of our §199 Domestic Production Activities Deduction for tax years 2010, 2011 and 2012. On September 11, 2018 we petitioned the United States Tax Court for a redetermination of the deficiency. The tax court has assigned docket number 18150-18 to our case. We intend to vigorously defend our position in litigation and based on our analysis of the law, regulations and relevant facts, we have not reserved for any potential future payments.

 

On February 3, 2017, a class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, alleging that the Company violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act, by failing to properly censor consumer credit or debit card information (Muransky v. The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated; Case No. 0:17-cv-60229-JEM). On February 21, 2017 and February 28, 2017, two additional lawsuits were filed in California and New York, respectively, alleging similar claims to Case No. 0:17-cv-60229-JEM (Tibbits v. The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated; Case No. 1:17-cv-00968 ( E.D.N.Y.); Zhang v. The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated; Case No 8:17-cv-00357 (C.D. Cal.)). The Company filed a motion to transfer and dismiss Case No. 0:17-cv-60229-JEM on March 24, 2017 and similarly filed a motion to transfer and dismiss Case No. 1:17-cv-00968 on April 7, 2017. On October 16, 2017, the Florida court granted the Company’s motion to transfer Case No. 0:17-cv-60229JEM to California to be consolidated with Case No. 8:17-cv-00357. The plaintiff in Case No. 1:17-cv-00968 agreed to transfer its case to California and such matter was subsequently consolidated with Case No 8:17-cv-00357.  On May 25, 2018, the parties reached a tentative settlement which covers the three consolidated cases. The final settlement agreement is subject to documentation and court approval.  Based on the current status of this matter, we have reserved an immaterial amount.

On February 3, 2017, five present and former hourly restaurant employees filed a class action lawsuit in the San Diego County Superior Court, alleging that the Company violated the California Labor Code and California Business and Professions Code, by failing to permit required meal and rest breaks, and failing to provide accurate wage statements, among other claims (Abdelaziz v. The Cheesecake Factory Restaurants, Inc., et al.; Case No 37-2016-00039775-CU-OE-CTL). On February 22, 2017, a lawsuit was filed in the San Diego County Superior Court, alleging similar claims to Case No. 37-2016-00039775-CU-OE-CTL (Rodriguez v. The Cheesecake Factory Restaurants, Inc., et al.; Case No. 37-2017-00006571-CU-OE-CTL). The San Diego County Superior Court consolidated Case Nos. 37-2016-00039775-CU-OR-CTL and 37-2017-00006571-CU-OE-CTL. The lawsuits seek unspecified penalties under PAGA in addition to other monetary payments. On July 24, 2018, the parties reached a tentative settlement which covers the consolidated cases. On October 5, 2018, the court signed an order approving the settlement agreement. We have reserved an immaterial amount.

 

On June 1, 2018, a former hourly restaurant employee filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, alleging that the Company violated minimum wage and overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Code (Orellana v. Grand Lux Cafe, LLC, et al; Case No. 18-cv-02739). The plaintiff seeks unspecified amounts of fees, penalties and other monetary payments on behalf of the plaintiff and other purported class members. On August 31, 2018, the court signed an order staying Case No. 18-cv-02739 in favor of individual arbitration of plaintiff’s claims. We intend to vigorously defend this action. However, it is not possible at this time to reasonably estimate the outcome of or any potential liability from this matter and, accordingly, we have not reserved for any potential future payments.

 

On June 7, 2018, the California Department of Industrial Relations issued a $4.2 million wage citation jointly against the Company and its vendor that provides janitorial services to eight of our Southern California restaurants, alleging that the janitorial vendor or its subcontractor failed to comply with various provisions of the California Labor Code (Wage Citation Case No. 35-CM-188798-16). The wage citation seeks to recover penalties and other monetary payments on behalf of the employees that worked for this vendor or its subcontractor. On June 28, 2018, the Company filed its appeal of the wage citation. We intend to vigorously defend this action. However, it is not possible at this time to reasonably estimate the outcome of or any potential liability from this matter and, accordingly, we have not reserved for any potential future payments

 

Within the ordinary course of our business, we are subject to private lawsuits, government audits, administrative proceedings and other claims. These matters typically involve claims from customers, staff members and others related to operational and employment issues common to the foodservice industry. A number of these claims may exist at any given time, and some of the claims may be pled as class actions. From time to time, we are also involved in lawsuits with respect to infringements of, or challenges to, our registered trademarks and other intellectual property, both domestically and abroad. We could be affected by adverse publicity and litigation costs resulting from such allegations, regardless of whether they are valid or whether we are legally determined to be liable.

 

At this time, we believe that the amount of reasonably possible losses resulting from final disposition of any pending lawsuits, audits, proceedings and claims will not have a material adverse effect individually or in the aggregate on our financial position, results of operations or liquidity. It is possible, however, that our future results of operations for a particular quarter or fiscal year could be impacted by changes in circumstances relating to lawsuits, audits, proceedings or claims. Legal costs related to such claims are expensed as incurred.

 

6. Stockholders’ Equity

 

On July 26, 2018, our Board of Directors (“Board”) approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per share that was paid on August 28, 2018 to the stockholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2018. Future decisions to pay or to increase or decrease dividends are at the discretion of the Board and will be dependent on our operating performance, financial condition, capital expenditure requirements, limitations on cash distributions pursuant to the terms and conditions of our Facility and applicable law, and such other factors that our Board considers relevant.

 

On July 21, 2016, our Board increased the authorization to repurchase our common stock by 7.5 million shares to 56.0 million shares. Under this and all previous authorizations, we cumulatively repurchased 50.8 million shares at a total cost of $1,593.8 million through October 2, 2018, including 0.4 million shares at a cost of $18.9 million repurchased during the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Repurchased common stock is reflected as a reduction of stockholders’ equity in treasury stock. Share repurchases have been executed under stock repurchase plans adopted from time to time by our Board in furtherance of its repurchase authorization and are intended to qualify for safe harbor protection in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Repurchases during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 were made under stock repurchase plans adopted by our Board on February 15, 2018, effective from May 1, 2018 through July 31, 2018 and on July 26, 2018, effective from August 3, 2018 through August 17, 2018 and from August 31, 2018 through February 1, 2019.

 

Our share repurchase authorization does not have an expiration date, does not require us to purchase a specific number of shares and may be modified, suspended or terminated by our Board at any time. Shares may be repurchased in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions at times and prices considered appropriate by us. All purchases in the open market are made in compliance with Rule 10b-18. We make the determination to repurchase shares based on several factors, including an evaluation of current and future capital needs associated with new restaurant development, current and forecasted cash flows, including dividend payments and growth capital contributions to North Italia and Flower Child, a review of our capital structure and cost of capital, our share price and current market conditions. The timing and number of shares repurchased are also subject to legal constraints and financial covenants under our Facility that limit share repurchases based on a defined ratio. (See Note 4 for further discussion of our long-term debt.) Our objectives with regard to share repurchases are to offset the dilution to our shares outstanding that results from equity compensation grants and to supplement our earnings per share growth.

7.  Stock-Based Compensation

 

On April 5, 2017, our Board approved an amendment to our 2010 Stock Incentive Plan to increase the number of shares of common stock available for grant under the plan to 12.7 million shares from 9.2 million shares. This amendment was approved by our stockholders at our annual meeting held on June 8, 2017. This is our only active stock-based incentive plan, and approximately 3.2 million of these shares were available for grant as of October 2, 2018.

The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 was $0.8 million and $5.5 million, respectively. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 3, 2017 was $0.4 million and $10.4 million, respectively. As of October 2, 2018, total unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to unvested stock options was $7.7 million, which we expect to recognize over a weighted average period of approximately 3.3 years.

As of October 2, 2018, total unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to unvested restricted shares and restricted share units was $34.8 million, which we expect to recognize over a weighted average period of approximately 3.0 years.

 

8.  Net Income Per Share

 

Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, reduced by unvested restricted stock awards. As of October 2, 2018 and October 3, 2017, 1.7 million and 1.8 million shares, respectively, of restricted stock issued to staff members were unvested and, therefore, excluded from the calculation of basic earnings per share for the fiscal periods ended on those dates. Diluted net income per share includes the dilutive effect of outstanding equity awards, calculated using the treasury stock method. Shares of common stock equivalents of 1.3 million for both October 2, 2018 and October 3, 2017, were excluded from the diluted calculation due to their anti-dilutive effect.

General

 

This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes included in Part I, Item 1 of this report and with the following items included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2018: the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes in Part IV, Item 15; the “Risk Factors” included in Part I, Item 1A; the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” included in Part II, Item 7; and the cautionary statements included throughout the report. The inclusion of supplementary analytical and related information herein may require us to make estimates and assumptions to enable us to fairly present, in all material respects, our analysis of trends and expectations with respect to our results of operations and financial position.

 

Our business operates in the upscale casual dining segment of the restaurant industry. As of November 9, 2018, we operated 215 Company-owned restaurants: 199 under The Cheesecake Factory® mark, 14 under the Grand Lux Cafe® mark and two under the RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen® mark. In addition, 21 The Cheesecake Factory branded restaurants in the Middle East, Mexico, the Chinese Mainland and the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong were operated by third parties under licensing agreements. We also operated two bakery production facilities that produce desserts for our restaurants, international licensees and third-party bakery customers. We are selectively pursuing other means to leverage our competitive strengths, including investing in or acquiring new restaurant concepts (such as North Italia® and Flower Child®), expanding The Cheesecake Factory® brand to other retail opportunities through The Cheesecake Factory At HomeTM consumer packaged goods and internally developing Social Monk Asian KitchenTM, a fast casual concept.

 

Overview

 

Our strategy is driven by our commitment to customer satisfaction and is focused primarily on menu innovation, service and operational execution to continue to differentiate ourselves from other restaurant concepts, as well as to drive competitively strong performance that is sustainable. Financially, we are focused on prudently managing expenses at our restaurants, bakery facilities and corporate support center, and leveraging our size to make the best use of our purchasing power.

 

Investing in new Company-owned restaurants is our top capital allocation priority, with a focus on opening our concepts in premier locations within both new and existing markets in the United States and Canada. We target an average cash-on-cash return on investment of approximately 20% to 25% at the unit level. Returns are affected by the cost to build restaurants, the level of revenues that each restaurant can deliver and our ability to maximize the profitability of restaurants. Investing in new restaurants that meet our return on investment criteria is expected to support achieving mid-teens Company-level return on invested capital.

Our domestic revenue growth (comprised of our annual unit growth and comparable sales growth), combined with international expansion, contribution from our incremental growth opportunities, our share repurchase program and our dividend provide a framework with high visibility and one that supports our long-term financial objective of mid-teens growth in total return to shareholders, which we define as earnings per share growth plus our dividend yield. The following are the key performance levers that we believe will contribute to achieving these goals:

 

·             Grow Overall Revenues.  Our overall revenue growth is primarily driven by revenues from new restaurant openings, increases in comparable restaurant sales, and royalties and bakery sales from additional licensed international locations. Changes in comparable restaurant sales come from variations in customer traffic, as well as in average check.

 

Our strategy is to increase comparable restaurant sales by growing average check and stabilizing customer traffic through (1) continuing to offer innovative, high quality menu items that offer customers a wide range of options in terms of flavor, price and value and (2) focusing on service and hospitality with the goal of delivering an exceptional customer experience. We are continuing our efforts on a number of initiatives, including a greater focus on increasing customer throughput in our restaurants, partnering with a third party to provide delivery services for our restaurants, offering online ordering capabilities, enhancing our training programs and leveraging a new customer satisfaction measurement platform.

 

Average check is driven by menu price increases and/or changes in menu mix. We generally update and reprint our menus twice a year, and our philosophy is to use price increases to help offset key operating cost increases in a manner that balances protecting both our margins and customer traffic levels. We plan to continue targeting menu price increases of approximately 2% to 3% annually going forward, utilizing a market-based strategy to help mitigate cost pressure in higher-wage geographies, and expect near-term increases to be at the higher end of the range.

 

In addition, we are selectively pursuing a number of incremental growth opportunities, which we believe will contribute to revenue growth over time. These include: measured growth of our Grand Lux Cafe and RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen concepts; our investments in North Italia and Flower Child described under “Liquidity and Capital Resources” below; and consumer packaged goods opportunities, such as The Cheesecake Factory At Home-branded baking mixes, puddings, coffee creamer and our Famous “Brown Bread” that are now available at a variety of retail stores. We have also started construction on the first location of our internally developed fast casual concept, Social Monk Asian Kitchen, which is scheduled to open in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

 

·                Stabilize and Expand Operating Margins (Income from Operations Expressed as a Percentage of Revenues). Operating margins are subject to fluctuations in commodity costs, labor, restaurant-level occupancy expenses, general and administrative expenses (“G&A”) and preopening expenses. Our objective is to stabilize our operating margins, and longer-term to drive margin expansion, by maintaining restaurant-level margins and capturing fixed cost leverage primarily through G&A efficiencies, our upgraded bakery technology and projected third party bakery sales growth, increasing international and consumer packaged goods licensing revenues and contribution from our other incremental growth opportunities. Maximizing our purchasing power as our business grows and operating our restaurants as productively as possible, in addition to continuing to implement a market-based menu pricing strategy to help mitigate cost pressure in higher-wage geographies, should help offset cost inflation, thereby supporting our margin expansion goal.

 

·                Return Capital to Shareholders. We have historically generated a significant amount of free cash flow, which we define as cash flow provided by operating activities less net capital expenditures and our growth capital contributions to North Italia and Flower Child. We utilize substantially all of our free cash flow plus proceeds received from staff member stock option exercises for dividends and share repurchases, the latter of which is designed to offset dilution from our equity compensation program and support our earnings per share growth.

 

Results of Operations

 

The following table presents, for the periods indicated, information from our condensed consolidated statements of income expressed as percentages of revenues. The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period or for the full fiscal year.

Thirteen Weeks Ended October 2, 2018 Compared to Thirteen Weeks Ended October 3, 2017

 

Revenues

 

Revenues increased 4.6% to $580.9 million for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2018 compared to $555.4 million for the thirteen weeks ended October 3, 2017, primarily due to new restaurant openings and positive comparable restaurant sales.

 

Comparable sales at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased by 1.5%, or $7.4 million, from the third quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to the casual dining industry which experienced a comparable sales increase of 1.9%, as measured by Knapp Track. Our comparable sales growth was driven by average check growth of 3.5% (based on an increase of 2.9% in menu pricing and 0.6% in mix), partially offset by a decline in customer traffic of 2.0%. We implemented effective menu price increases of approximately 1.5% in both the first and third quarters of fiscal 2018. The Cheesecake Factory average sales per restaurant operating week increased 1.7% to $205,508 in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 from $202,139 in the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Total operating weeks at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased 2.7% to 2,580 for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2018 compared to 2,511 for the comparable prior year period.

 

Restaurants become eligible to enter our comparable sales base in their 19th month of operation. At October 2, 2018, there were seven The Cheesecake Factory restaurants, one Grand Lux Cafe and one RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen not yet in our comparable sales base. International licensed locations and restaurants that are no longer in operation, including those which we have relocated, are excluded from our comparable sales calculations. Factors outside of our control, such as macroeconomic conditions, weather patterns, timing of holidays, competition and other factors, including those referenced in Part I, Item lA, “Risk Factors,” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 2, 2018, can impact comparable sales.

 

External bakery sales were $13.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $12.6 million in the comparable prior year period.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales consists of food, beverage, retail and bakery production supply costs incurred in conjunction with our restaurant and bakery revenues, and excludes depreciation, which is captured separately in depreciation and amortization expenses. As a percentage of revenues, cost of sales was 23.0% for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 22.9% for the comparable period of fiscal 2017, primarily driven by higher bakery mix, partially offset by lower seafood and produce costs.

 

The Cheesecake Factory restaurant menus are among the most diversified in the foodservice industry and, accordingly, are not overly dependent on a few select commodities. Changes in costs for one commodity sometimes can be offset by cost changes in other commodity categories. The principal commodity categories for our restaurants include general grocery items, dairy, produce, seafood, poultry, meat and bread. See the discussion of our contracting activities in Item 3 — “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.”

 

As has been our past practice, we will carefully consider opportunities to introduce new menu items and implement selected menu price increases to help offset any expected cost increases for key commodities and other goods and services. For new restaurants, cost of sales will typically be higher for a period of time after opening until our management team becomes more accustomed to predicting, managing and servicing the sales volumes at these restaurants.

Table of Contents

 

Labor Expenses

 

As a percentage of revenues, labor expenses, which include restaurant-level labor costs and bakery direct production labor, including associated fringe benefits, were 35.2% and 34.9% in the third quarters of fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. This variance was driven primarily by increased hourly labor costs, including higher wage rates and overtime, partially offset by lower payroll taxes and stock-based compensation costs.

 

Other Operating Costs and Expenses

 

Other operating costs and expenses consist of restaurant-level occupancy expenses (rent, common area expenses, insurance, licenses, taxes and utilities), other operating expenses (excluding food costs and labor expenses, which are reported separately) and bakery production overhead and distribution expenses. As a percentage of revenues, other operating costs and expenses were 24.8% and 24.9% for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2018 and October 3, 2017, respectively. This variance primarily related to lower repairs and maintenance and rent expense, partially offset by higher marketing costs.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses consist of the restaurant management recruiting and training program, the restaurant field supervision, corporate support and bakery administrative organizations, as well as gift card commissions to third-party distributors. As a percentage of revenues, G&A expenses were 6.5% and 6.4% for the third quarters of fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. This variance was primarily due to a higher corporate bonus accrual and increased stock-based compensation expense, partially offset by lower legal costs.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses

 

As a percentage of revenues, depreciation and amortization expenses was 4.1% for both the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2018 and the comparable period of last year.

 

Impairment of Assets and Lease Terminations

 

In the third quarter of fiscal 2018, we recorded $0.3 million of lease termination costs related to the closure of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant. No impairment of assets or lease terminations occurred in the comparable prior year period.

 

Preopening Costs

 

Preopening costs were $3.3 million for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2018 compared to $3.4 million in the comparable period of fiscal 2017. We opened one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant and one Grand Lux Cafe restaurant in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in the comparable prior year period. Preopening costs include all costs to relocate and compensate restaurant management staff members during the preopening period, costs to recruit and train hourly restaurant staff members, and wages, travel and lodging costs for our opening training team and other support staff members. Also included are expenses for maintaining a roster of trained managers for pending openings, the associated temporary housing and other costs necessary to relocate managers in alignment with future restaurant opening and operating needs, and corporate travel and support activities. Preopening costs can fluctuate significantly from period to period based on the number and timing of restaurant openings and the specific preopening costs incurred for each restaurant.

 

Interest and Other Expense, Net

 

Interest and other expense, net was $3.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $1.6 million for the comparable period last year. This increase was primarily related to our share of losses incurred by North Italia and Flower Child, which were driven mainly by preopening costs associated with new unit development. In addition, interest expense associated with landlord construction allowances deemed to be financings in accordance with accounting guidance increased to $1.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 from $1.4 million in the comparable prior year period.

 

Income Tax Provision

 

Our effective income tax rate was 5.7% for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 19.2% for the comparable prior year period. This decrease was primarily due to the impact of the Tax Act, including the reduction in the statutory U.S. corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, and a higher proportion of FICA tip credit in relation to pre-tax income, partially offset by a lower benefit from stock-based compensation.

Revenues

 

Revenues increased 4.5% to $1,764.8 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 compared to $1,688.7 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 3, 2017, primarily due to new restaurant openings and positive comparable restaurant sales.

 

Comparable sales at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased by 1.7%, or $25.0 million, from the first three quarters of fiscal 2017, outperforming the casual dining industry which experienced a comparable sales increase of 1.1%, as measured by Knapp Track. Our comparable sales growth was driven by average check growth of 3.2% (based on an increase of 2.8% in menu pricing and 0.4% in mix), partially offset by a decline in customer traffic of 1.5%. The Cheesecake Factory average sales per restaurant operating week increased 1.9% to $208,167 in the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 versus $204,375 in the first three quarters of fiscal 2017. Total operating weeks at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants increased 2.6% to 7,749 for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 compared to 7,550 for the comparable prior year period.

 

External bakery sales were $38.7 million for the first three quarters of fiscal year 2018 compared to $37.8 million in the comparable prior year period.

 

Cost of Sales

 

As a percentage of revenues, cost of sales was 22.8% in both the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017 with lower seafood costs offset by higher poultry costs.

 

Labor Expenses

 

As a percentage of revenues, labor expenses were 35.6% and 34.4% in the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. This variance was driven primarily by increased hourly labor costs, including higher wage rates and overtime, as well as higher group medical costs due to higher frequency and severity of claims.

 

Other Operating Costs and Expenses

 

As a percentage of revenues, other operating costs and expenses were 24.7% and 24.4% for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 and October 3, 2017, respectively. This variance primarily related to higher marketing costs and bakery production overhead, partially offset by lower rent expense.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

As a percentage of revenues, G&A expenses were 6.7% and 6.3% for the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. This variance was primarily due to a higher corporate bonus accrual.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses

 

As a percentage of revenues, depreciation and amortization expenses were 4.1% for both the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 and the comparable period of last year.

 

Impairment of Assets and Lease Terminations

 

In the first three quarters of fiscal 2018, we recorded $2.8 million of lease termination costs related to the closure of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant. In the first three quarters of fiscal 2017, we recorded $1.2 million of accelerated depreciation and impairment expense related to the relocation of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant and the lease expiration of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant.

 

Preopening Costs

 

Preopening costs were $5.8 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 compared to $5.6 million in the comparable period of fiscal 2017. In the first three quarters of fiscal 2018, we opened one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant and one Grand Lux Cafe restaurant compared to opening one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant and relocating another The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in the comparable prior year period.

 

Interest and Other Expense, Net

 

Interest and other expense, net was $7.7 million for the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 compared to $4.4 million for the comparable period last year. This increase was primarily related to our share of losses incurred by North Italia and Flower Child, which were driven mainly by preopening costs associated with new unit development. In addition, interest expense associated with landlord construction allowances deemed to be financings in accordance with accounting guidance increased to $5.0 million in the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 from $4.4 million in the comparable prior year period.

Income Tax Provision

 

Our effective income tax rate was 9.8% for the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 compared to 19.4% for the comparable prior year period. This decrease was primarily due to the impact of the Tax Act, including the reduction in the statutory U.S. corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, and a higher proportion of FICA tip credit in relation to pre-tax income, partially offset by a lower benefit from stock-based compensation.

 

Non-GAAP Measures

 

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by or presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. We calculate these non-GAAP measures by eliminating from net income and diluted net income per share the impact of items we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operations. We believe these adjusted measures provide additional information to facilitate the comparison of our past and present financial results. We utilize results that both include and exclude the identified items in evaluating business performance. Our inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items. In the future, we may incur expenses or generate income similar to the adjusted items.

 

Following is a reconciliation from net income and diluted net income per share to the corresponding adjusted measures (in thousands, except per share data):

(2)         Adjusted diluted net income per share may not add due to rounding.

 

Fiscal 2018 Outlook

 

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, we estimate adjusted diluted net income per share will be between $0.60 and $0.64 based on an assumed comparable sales range of 0.5% to 1.5% at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants. This is based on an assumed effective tax rate of approximately 10%.

 

We estimate adjusted diluted net income per share for fiscal 2018 will be between $2.42 and $2.46 based on assumed comparable sales of approximately 1.5% at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants. For fiscal 2018, we are estimating commodity cost inflation of about 2.5%, primarily driven by poultry and dairy costs, wage rate inflation of approximately 6% and an effective tax rate of approximately 10%. Adjusted diluted net income per share excludes $2.1 million of lease termination costs related to the closure of one The Cheesecake Factory restaurant.

 

In fiscal 2018, we plan to open five new restaurants, including one The Cheesecake Factory and one Grand Lux Cafe that opened in the third quarter. In addition to these Company-owned locations, two restaurants opened internationally under licensing agreements in fiscal 2018.

Table of Contents

 

We expect fiscal 2018 net capital expenditures to range between $80 million and $85 million and have completed our planned fiscal 2018 growth capital contributions of $25 million to North Italia and Flower Child. We anticipate utilizing substantially all of our free cash flow, plus proceeds received from employee stock option exercises, for dividends and share repurchases. (See “Liquidity and Capital Resources” for further discussion of expected 2018 capital expenditures.)

 

Fiscal 2019 Outlook

 

We continue to target a comparable sales range of between 1% and 2% at The Cheesecake Factory restaurants within our long-term framework. For fiscal 2019, we are currently estimating commodity cost inflation of between 1% and 2%, wage rate inflation of approximately 6% and an effective tax rate of approximately 12%.

 

In fiscal 2019, we plan new unit growth of at least 3% for The Cheesecake Factory restaurants. We also expect to open the first location of Social Monk Asian Kitchen, our internally developed fast casual concept, in addition to as many as five to six locations to open internationally under licensing agreements.

 

We expect fiscal 2019 net capital expenditures to range between $100 million and $110 million and growth capital contributions to North Italia and Flower Child, excluding the potential acquisition of North Italia, to range between $20 million and $25 million. We plan to balance these growth investments with continued return of capital to shareholders, via our dividend and share repurchase program.

During the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018, our cash and cash equivalents increased by $6.6 million to $12.6 million. This increase was primarily attributable to cash provided by operating activities, net borrowings on our Facility and proceeds from exercise of stock options, partially offset by additions in property and equipment, treasury stock purchases, dividend payments and growth capital investments in North Italia and Flower Child.

 

For fiscal 2018, we currently estimate our cash outlays for capital expenditures to range between $80 million and $85 million, net of up-front cash landlord construction contributions and excluding $9.5 million of expected non-capitalizable preopening costs for new restaurants. The amount reflected as additions to property and equipment in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows may vary from this estimate based on the accounting treatment of each lease. (See “Recent Accounting Pronouncements-Recently Issued Accounting Standards” in Note 1 to our financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 above in this report.) Our estimate for capital expenditures for fiscal 2018 contemplates a net outlay of $30 million to $33 million for five Company-owned restaurants expected to be opened during fiscal 2018 and estimated construction-in-progress disbursements for anticipated early fiscal 2019 openings. Expected fiscal 2018 capital expenditures also include approximately $30 million to $32 million for replacements, enhancements and capacity additions to our existing restaurants and approximately $20 million for bakery and corporate infrastructure investments, including an infrastructure upgrade of our California bakery.

 

We have a strategic relationship with Fox Restaurant Concepts LLC (“FRC”) with respect to two of its brands, North Italia and Flower Child, that share a number of parallels with us in terms of culture and philosophy, and that we believe have significant opportunity for growth. FRC, or its affiliates, continues to own the intellectual property, manage day-to-day operations and provide infrastructure support to facilitate the near-term growth of both of these concepts. We made initial minority equity investments of $42 million in these concepts during fiscal 2016 and invested ongoing growth capital in the amount of $25 million and $18 million during fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. We are obligated to provide up to an additional $3 million in growth capital to Flower Child and have the right, and an obligation if certain financial, legal and operational conditions are met, to acquire the remaining interest in North Italia in fiscal 2019 and in Flower Child in 2021. We plan to make growth capital contributions to North Italia and Flower Child, excluding the potential acquisition of North Italia, of between $20 million and $25 million in fiscal 2019. Should we ultimately acquire one or both concepts, we would evaluate the appropriate capital structure at that time.

 

We maintain a $200 million unsecured revolving credit facility (“Facility”), $50 million of which may be used for issuances of letters of credit. Availability under the Facility is reduced by outstanding letters of credit, which are used to support our self-insurance programs. The Facility, which matures on December 22, 2020, contains a commitment increase feature that could provide for an additional $100 million in available credit upon our request and subject to the participating lenders electing to increase their commitments or new lenders being added to the Facility. Certain of our material subsidiaries guarantee our obligations under the Facility. During the third quarter of fiscal 2018, we utilized the Facility to fund a portion of our stock repurchases. At October 2, 2018, we had net availability for borrowings of $159.3 million, based on a $20.0 million outstanding debt balance and $20.7 million in standby letters of credit. The Facility limits cash distributions with respect to our equity interests, such as cash dividends and share repurchases, based on a defined ratio. As of October 2, 2018, we were in compliance with the covenants set forth in the Facility. (See Note 4 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this report for further discussion of our long-term debt.)

In fiscal 2012, our Board approved the initiation of a cash dividend to our stockholders, which is subject to quarterly Board approval. Cash dividends have been declared during every quarter since initiation. Future decisions to pay or to increase or decrease dividends are at the discretion of the Board and will be dependent on our operating performance, financial condition, capital expenditure requirements, limitations on cash distributions pursuant to the terms and conditions of our Facility and applicable law, and other such factors that the Board considers relevant.

 

On July 21, 2016, our Board increased the authorization to repurchase our common stock by 7.5 million shares to 56.0 million shares. Under this and all previous authorizations, we have cumulatively repurchased 50.8 million shares at a total cost of $1,593.8 million through October 2, 2018, including 0.4 million shares at a cost of $18.9 million repurchased during the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Our share repurchase authorization does not have an expiration date, does not require us to purchase a specific number of shares and may be modified, suspended or terminated at any time. We make the determination to repurchase shares based on several factors, including an evaluation of current and future capital needs associated with new restaurant development, current and forecasted cash flows, including dividend payments and growth capital contributions to North Italia and Flower Child, a review of our capital structure and cost of capital, our share price and current market conditions. The timing and number of shares repurchased are also subject to legal constraints and financial covenants under our Facility that limit share repurchases based on a defined ratio. (See Note 4 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part 1, Item 1 of this report for further discussion of our long-term debt.) Our objectives with regard to share repurchases are to offset the dilution to our shares outstanding that results from equity compensation grants and to supplement our earnings per share growth. (See Note 6 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this report for further discussion of our repurchase authorization and methods.)

 

Based on our current expansion objectives, we believe that during the upcoming 12 months our cash and cash equivalents, combined with expected cash flows provided by operations, available borrowings under our Facility and expected landlord construction contributions should be sufficient in the aggregate to finance our capital allocation strategy, including capital expenditures, share repurchases, cash dividends and growth capital contributions to North Italia and Flower Child, and allow us to consider additional possible capital allocation strategies, such as developing or acquiring other growth vehicles. We continue to plan to return substantially all of our free cash flow plus proceeds received from staff member stock option exercises to stockholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases.

 

As of October 2, 2018, we had no financing transactions, arrangements or other relationships with any unconsolidated entities or related parties other than our arrangement with FRC. Additionally, we had no financing arrangements involving synthetic leases or trading activities involving commodity contracts.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

The following discussion of market risks contains forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from the following discussion based on general conditions in the commodity and financial markets.

 

We purchase food and other commodities for use in our operations, based on market prices established with our suppliers. Many of the commodities purchased by us can be subject to volatility due to market supply and demand factors outside of our control. Substantially all of our ingredients and supplies are available from multiple qualified suppliers, which helps mitigate our risk of commodity availability and obtain competitive prices. We negotiate short-term and long-term agreements for some of our principal commodity, supply and equipment requirements, such as certain dairy products and chicken, depending on market conditions and expected demand. We continue to evaluate the possibility of entering into similar arrangement for additional commodities. However, we are currently unable to contract directly for extended periods of time for certain of our commodities such as certain produce items, wild-caught fresh fish and certain dairy products. We also periodically evaluate hedging vehicles, such as direct financial instruments, to assist us in managing our risk and variability in these categories. Although these vehicles and markets may be available to us, we may choose not to enter into contracts due to pricing volatility, excessive risk premiums, hedge inefficiencies or other factors. Where we have not entered into long-term contracts, commodities can be subject to unforeseen supply and cost fluctuations, which at times may be significant. For both the third quarters of fiscal 2018 and 2017, a hypothetical increase of 1% in food costs would have negatively impacted cost of sales by $1.3 million. For the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018 and October 3, 2017, a hypothetical increase of 1% in food costs would have negatively impacted cost of sales by $4.0 million and $3.9 million, respectively.

 

We are exposed to market risk from interest rate changes on our funded debt. This exposure relates to the component of the interest rate on our Facility that is indexed to market rates. Based on outstanding borrowings at October 2, 2018 and January 2, 2018, a hypothetical 1% rise in interest rates would have increased interest expense by $200,000 and $100,000, respectively, on an annual basis. (See Note 4 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this report for further discussion of our long-term debt.)

 

21


Table of Contents

 

We are also subject to market risk related to our investments in variable life insurance contracts used to support our Executive Savings Plan, a non-qualified deferred compensation plan, to the extent these investments are not equivalent to the related liability. In addition, because changes in these investments are not taxable, gains and losses result in tax benefit and tax expense, respectively, and directly affects net income through the income tax provision. Based on balances at October 2, 2018 and January 2, 2018, a hypothetical 10% decline in the market value of our deferred compensation asset and related liability would not have impacted income before income taxes. However, under such scenario, net income would have declined by $1.6 million and $2.5 million at October 2, 2018 and January 2, 2018, respectively.

 

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have established and maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that material information relating to the Company and our subsidiaries required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only a reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management was necessarily required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of October 2, 2018.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) during the fiscal quarter ended October 2, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Our Facility limits cash distributions with respect to our equity interests, such as cash dividends and share repurchases, based on a defined ratio. (See Note 4 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this report for further discussion of our long-term debt.)

Royalty revenues are </font><font style="display:inline;color:#000000;">recognized in the period the related sales occur</font><font style="display:inline;">, utilizing the sale-based royalty exception available under current accounting guidance. Development and site fees are recognized as revenue over the life of the applicable agreements, ranging from eight to 30 years. In the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018, we deferred revenue of $0.2 million for new site agreements. There were no new development agreements executed during the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2018.
