Item 2.02 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION
Basis of Presentation
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K provides supplemental information regarding OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC’s (the “Company’s”) results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 and should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto and the other information included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 (the “Form 10-Q”). The results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 are not necessarily indicative of a full year’s results. Generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements. Actual results may vary materially from these estimates and assumptions.
The Company’s operating concepts are Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, and Roy’s. The Company’s restaurant system operates in 49 states and 21 countries and territories internationally as of March 31, 2012.
First Quarter – Comparable Restaurant Sales
Comparable-store sales for the Company’s significant restaurant brands for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 compared to the same quarter in 2011 changed by approximately:
Quarter ended March 31, 2012
joint venture (1)
Domestic comparable restaurant sales (stores open 18 months or more)
Carrabba’s Italian Grill
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar
These sales do not represent sales of OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC and are presented only as an indicator of changes in the Company’s restaurant system, which management believes is important information about the Company’s restaurant brands.
Reconciliation of Net Income Attributable to OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR
EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), Adjusted EBITDA (a measure the Company is required to report to its lenders, calculated by adjusting EBITDA to exclude certain stock-based compensation expenses, non–cash expenses and significant non–recurring items) and Adjusted EBITDAR (Adjusted EBITDA before rent expense) are supplemental measures of profitability that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, is based on a report the Company delivers to its lenders. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures used by other companies. They are not measurements of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to Net income attributable to OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as measures of the Company’s liquidity. The Company believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR provide helpful information about the Company’s operations, cash flows and ability to meet its future debt service, capital expenditure and working capital requirements.
The following table reconciles Net income attributable to OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 (in thousands):
