FIESTA RESTAURANT GROUP, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(In thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)



1. Basis of Presentation
Business Description. Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc. ("Fiesta Restaurant Group" or "Fiesta") owns, operates and franchises two fast-casual restaurant brands through its wholly-owned subsidiaries Pollo Operations, Inc., and its subsidiaries, and Pollo Franchise, Inc., (collectively “Pollo Tropical”) and Taco Cabana, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively “Taco Cabana”). Unless the context otherwise requires, Fiesta and its subsidiaries, Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana, are collectively referred to as the “Company”. At June 29, 2014, the Company owned and operated 112 Pollo Tropical® restaurants, of which 104 were located in Florida, five were located in Georgia, two were located in Tennessee, and one was located in Texas, and franchised a total of 35 Pollo Tropical restaurants, including 17 in Puerto Rico, one in Ecuador, one in Honduras, one in The Bahamas, two in Trinidad & Tobago, two in Venezuela, two in Costa Rica, three in Panama, one in Dominican Republic, one in Guatemala and four on college campuses in Florida. At June 29, 2014, the Company also owned and operated 166 Taco Cabana® restaurants, of which 162 were located in Texas, three were located in Oklahoma and one restaurant under the elevated non-24 hour Taco Cabana format, Cabana Grill®, was located in Georgia, and franchised a total of seven Taco Cabana restaurants, including four in New Mexico, and three non-traditional locations on college campuses in Texas.
Spin-Off from Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. On May 7, 2012, Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. ("Carrols Restaurant Group" or "Carrols") completed the spin-off of Fiesta through the distribution of all of the outstanding shares of Fiesta Restaurant Group's common stock to the stockholders of Carrols Restaurant Group (the "Spin-off"). As a result of the Spin-off, since May 7, 2012 Fiesta Restaurant Group has been an independent public company whose common stock is traded on The NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “FRGI”.
In connection with the Spin-off, Fiesta and Carrols entered into several agreements that govern Carrols' post Spin-off relationship with Fiesta, including a Separation and Distribution Agreement, Employee Matters Agreement, Tax Matters Agreement and Transition Services Agreement ("TSA"). See Note 4—Former Related Party Transactions.
Basis of Consolidation. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented herein reflect the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows of Fiesta and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.
Fiscal Year. The Company uses a 52-53 week fiscal year ending on the Sunday closest to December 31. The fiscal year ended December 29, 2013 contained 52 weeks. The three and six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013 each contained thirteen and twenty-six weeks, respectively.
Basis of Presentation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013 have been prepared without an audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and do not include certain information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all normal and recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of such financial statements have been included. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 29, 2013 included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2013. The December 29, 2013 balance sheet data is derived from those audited financial statements.
  Fair Value of Financial Instruments. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. In determining fair value, the accounting standards establish a three level hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value as follows: Level 1 inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities; Level 2 inputs are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, including quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities; and Level 3 inputs are unobservable and reflect our own assumptions. The following methods were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate the fair value:
Current Assets and Liabilities. The carrying values reported on the balance sheet of cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value because of the short maturity of those financial instruments.
Revolving Credit Borrowings. The fair value of outstanding revolving credit borrowings under our new senior credit facility, which is considered Level 2, is based on current LIBOR rates and at June 29, 2014, was approximately $66.0 million.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—(Continued)
(In thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)


Long-Lived Assets. The Company reviews its long-lived assets, principally property and equipment, for impairment at the restaurant level. In addition to considering management’s plans, known regulatory or governmental actions and damage due to acts of God (hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.), the Company considers a triggering event to have occurred related to a specific restaurant if the restaurant’s cash flows for the last twelve months are less than a minimum threshold or if consistent levels of cash flows for the remaining lease period are less than the carrying value of the restaurant’s assets. If an indicator of impairment exists for any of its assets, an estimate of undiscounted future cash flows over the life of the primary asset for each restaurant is compared to that long-lived asset’s carrying value. If the carrying value is greater than the undiscounted cash flow, the Company then determines the fair value of the asset and if an asset is determined to be impaired, the loss is measured by the excess of the carrying amount of the asset over its fair value. For closed restaurant locations, the Company reviews the future minimum lease payments and related ancillary costs from the date of the restaurant closure to the end of the remaining lease term and records a lease charge for the lease liabilities to be incurred, net of any estimated sublease recoveries.
Use of Estimates. The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements. Estimates also affect the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting periods. Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include: accrued occupancy costs, insurance liabilities, evaluation for impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets and lease accounting matters. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
2. Long-term Debt
New Senior Credit Facility. In December 2013, the Company terminated its former senior secured revolving credit facility, referred to as the “former senior credit facility”, and entered into a new senior secured revolving credit facility with a syndicate of lenders, which we refer to as the "new senior credit facility". The new senior credit facility provides for aggregate revolving credit borrowings of up to $150 million (including $15 million available for letters of credit) and matures on December 11, 2018. The new senior credit facility also provides for potential incremental increases of up to $50 million to the revolving credit borrowings available under the new senior credit facility. On June 29, 2014, there were $66.0 million in outstanding borrowings under our new senior credit facility.
Borrowings under the new senior credit facility bear interest at a per annum rate, at our option, equal to either (all terms as defined in the new senior credit facility):
1) the Alternate Base Rate plus the applicable margin of 0.50% to 1.50% based on our Adjusted Leverage Ratio (with a margin of 0.75% as of June 29, 2014), or
2) the LIBOR Rate plus the applicable margin of 1.50% to 2.50% based on our Adjusted Leverage Ratio (with a margin of 1.75% at June 29, 2014).
In addition, the new senior credit facility requires the Company to pay (i) a commitment fee based on the applicable Commitment Fee margin of 0.25% to 0.45%, based on our Adjusted Leverage Ratio (with a margin of 0.30% at June 29, 2014) and the unused portion of the facility and (ii) a letter of credit fee based on the applicable LIBOR margin and the dollar amount of outstanding letters of credit.
All obligations under the Company's new senior credit facility are guaranteed by all of the Company's material domestic subsidiaries. In general, the Company's obligations under the new senior credit facility and its subsidiaries’ obligations under the guarantees are secured by a first priority lien and security interest on substantially all of its assets and the assets of its material subsidiaries (including a pledge of all of the capital stock and equity interests of its material subsidiaries), other than certain specified assets, including real property owned by the Company or its subsidiaries.
The new senior credit facility requires the Company to comply with customary affirmative, negative and financial covenants. As of June 29, 2014, the Company was in compliance with the covenants under its new senior credit facility.
After reserving $7.5 million for letters of credit issued under the new senior credit facility, $76.5 million was available for borrowing at June 29, 2014.
Former Senior Credit Facility. The former senior credit facility provided for aggregate revolving credit borrowings of up to $25.0 million (including $10.0 million available for letters of credit). The facility also provided for incremental increases of up to $5.0 million, in the aggregate, to the revolving credit borrowings available under the former senior credit facility, and matured on February 5, 2016. The former senior secured credit facility was terminated on December 11, 2013 and replaced with the new senior credit facility discussed above.

Borrowings under the former senior credit facility bore interest at a per annum rate, at the Company’s option, of either (all terms as defined in the former senior credit facility):
1) the Alternate Base Rate plus the applicable margin of 2.00% to 2.75% based on the Company’s Adjusted Leverage Ratio, or
2) the LIBOR Rate plus the applicable margin of 3.00% to 3.75% based on the Company’s Adjusted Leverage Ratio.
Repurchase of Notes. On November 12, 2013, the Company commenced a tender offer and consent solicitation for all of its outstanding $200.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 8.875% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2016 (the "Notes"). The principal amount of Notes repurchased in the tender offer totaled $122.7 million. On December 11, 2013, the Company irrevocably called for redemption the remaining $77.3 million principal amount of Notes that were not validly tendered and accepted for payment in the tender offer.
The Notes were issued on August 5, 2011 pursuant to an indenture dated as of August 5, 2011 governing such Notes. The Notes matured and were payable on August 15, 2016. Interest was payable semi-annually on February 15 and August 15. The Notes were guaranteed by all of the Company’s subsidiaries and were secured by second-priority liens on substantially all of the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ assets (including a pledge of all of the capital stock and equity interests of its material subsidiaries).

Relationship Between Fiesta and Carrols After the Spin-Off
For purposes of governing certain of the ongoing relationships between the Company and Carrols at and after the Spin-off, the Company and Carrols have entered into the following agreements:
Tax Matters Agreement. The tax matters agreement dated April 24, 2012, (the "Tax Matters Agreement"), (1) governs the allocation of the tax assets and liabilities between Fiesta and Carrols and Carrols Corporation, a subsidiary of Carrols

(In thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)


("Carrols Corp."), (2) provides for certain restrictions and indemnities in connection with the tax treatment of the Spin-off and (3) addresses certain other tax related matters, including, without limitation, those relating to (a) the obligations of Carrols, Carrols Corp. and the Company with respect to the preparation or filing of tax returns for all periods, and (b) the control of any income tax audits and any indemnities with respect thereto. The Tax Matters Agreement provides that if the Company takes any actions after Carrols’ distribution of our shares in the Spin-off that result in or cause the distribution to be taxable to Carrols, the Company will be responsible under the Tax Matters Agreement for any resulting taxes imposed on the Company or on Carrols or Carrols Corp. Further, the Tax Matters Agreement provides that the Company will be responsible for 50% of the losses and taxes of Carrols and its affiliates resulting from the Spin-off not attributable to any such action of the Company or an equivalent action by Carrols.
Transition Services Agreement. Under the TSA, Carrols and Carrols Corp. agreed to provide certain support services (including accounting, tax accounting, treasury management, internal audit, financial reporting and analysis, human resources and employee benefits management, information systems, restaurant systems support, legal, property management and insurance and risk management services) to the Company, and the Company agreed to provide certain limited management services (including certain legal services) to Carrols and Carrols Corp. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recognized expenses of $1.1 million and $2.4 million, respectively, related to the TSA. In October 2013, the Company terminated the TSA with respect to substantially all of the remaining services provided under the TSA with the exception of certain information technology services and other miscellaneous services. The Company terminated the remaining services under the TSA in December 2013.
5. Income Taxes
The Company’s income tax provision was comprised of the following for the six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013:

The provision for income taxes for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 was derived using an estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2014 of 38.3%. There were no discrete tax adjustments in the six months ended June 29, 2014.
The provision for income taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 was derived using an estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2013 of 36.5%, which excludes any discrete tax adjustments.
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2013 (the "Act") was signed into law on January 2, 2013. The Act included a provision to retroactively restore several expired business tax provisions, including the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, as of January 1, 2012, with a new expiration date of December 31, 2013.  Because a change in tax law is accounted for in the period of enactment, and the Act was enacted after Fiesta's fiscal year-end, the retroactive effect of renewing the Work Opportunity Tax Credit was recorded as a discrete item in the first quarter of 2013. The discrete tax adjustment for the retroactive effect of renewing the Work Opportunity Tax Credit decreased the provision for income taxes by $0.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013.
6. Stock-Based Compensation
Prior to the Spin-off, certain of the Company's employees participated in the Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. 2006 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the "Carrols Plan"). In conjunction with the Spin-off, the Company established the Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc. 2012 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Fiesta Plan") in order to be able to compensate its employees and directors by issuing stock options, stock appreciation rights, or stock awards to them under this plan. For the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013, the condensed consolidated statements of operations include expenses related to the Company's employees' and directors' participation in both the Carrols Plan and the Fiesta Plan.
Effective as of the completion of the Spin-off, all holders of Carrols non-vested restricted stock (awarded under the Carrols Plan) on April 26, 2012, the record date of the Spin-off, received one share of Fiesta Restaurant Group non-vested restricted stock for every one share of Carrols non-vested restricted stock held, with terms and conditions substantially similar to the terms and conditions applicable to the Carrols non-vested restricted stock. Stock compensation expense on all non-vested restricted Carrols and Fiesta stock awards held by the Company's employees is recorded by the Company.

The accounting policies of each segment are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies discussed in Note 1. The Company reports more than one measure of segment profit or loss to the chief operating decision maker for the purposes of allocating resources to the segments and assessing their performance. The primary measures of segment profit or loss used to assess performance and allocate resources are income before taxes and Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as earnings attributable to the applicable operating segment before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment and other lease charges, stock-based compensation expense and other income and expense. Although the chief operating decision maker uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of segment profitability, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 280, Segment Reporting, the following table includes segment income before taxes, which is the measure of segment profit or loss determined in accordance with the measurement principles that are most consistent with the principles used in measuring the corresponding amounts in the consolidated financial statements.
The “Other” column includes corporate related items not allocated to reportable segments and consists primarily of corporate owned property and equipment, miscellaneous prepaid costs, capitalized costs associated with the issuance of indebtedness and corporate cash accounts.

8. Net Income per Share
 We compute basic net income per share by dividing net income applicable to common shares by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Our non-vested restricted shares contain a non-forfeitable right to receive dividends on a one-to-one per share ratio to common shares and are thus considered participating securities. The impact of the participating securities is included in the computation of basic net income per share pursuant to the two-class method. The two-class method of computing earnings per share is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings attributable to common shares and participating securities according to dividends declared (whether paid or unpaid) and participation rights in undistributed earnings. Net income per common share was computed by dividing undistributed earnings allocated to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. In applying the two-class method, undistributed earnings are allocated to both common shares and non-vested restricted shares based on the weighted average shares outstanding during the period.
Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if our restricted stock units were converted into common shares. We compute diluted earnings per share by adjusting the basic weighted average number of common shares by the dilutive effect of the restricted stock units, determined using the treasury stock method. Weighted average outstanding restricted stock units totaling 23,596 shares were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 29, 2014 because to do so would have been antidilutive.
The computation of basic and diluted net income per share for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013 is as follows:

9. Commitments and Contingencies
The Company is a party to various litigation matters incidental to the conduct of business. The Company does not believe that the outcome of any of these matters will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.
10. Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In April 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity, which raises the threshold for a disposal to qualify as a discontinued operation and requires new disclosures of both discontinued operations and certain other disposals that do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation. For the Company, the guidance is effective for the interim and annual periods beginning December 29, 2014. The ASU is applied prospectively; however, early adoption is permitted for disposals (or classifications as held for sale) that have not been reported in financial statements previously issued or available for issue. The Company intends to early adopt this standard.

FIESTA RESTAURANT GROUP, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—(Continued)
(In thousands of dollars, except share and per share amounts)


In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU 606, Revenue Recognition - Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which amends the guidance in former ASC 605, Revenue Recognition, and provides for either a full retrospective adoption in which the standard is applied to all of the periods presented or a modified retrospective adoption in which the cumulative effect of initially applying the standard is recognized at the date of initial application. The new standard provides accounting guidance for all revenue arising from contracts with customers and affects all entities that enter into contracts to provide goods or services to their customers unless the contracts are in the scope of other US GAAP requirements. The guidance also provides a model for the measurement and recognition of gains and losses on the sale of certain nonfinancial assets, such as property and equipment, including real estate. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the provisions of ASC 606. However, the Company currently expects the provisions to primarily impact certain franchise revenues and does not expect the standard to have a material effect on its financial statements. For the Company, the new standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016.

ITEM 2-MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Throughout this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”), we refer to Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc. as “Fiesta Restaurant Group” or "Fiesta" and, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, as “we,” “our” and “us” unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires.
The following MD&A is written to help the reader understand our company. The MD&A is provided as a supplement to, and should be read in conjunction with our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying financial statement notes appearing elsewhere in this report.
On May 7, 2012 (the "distribution date"), Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. completed the spin-off of Fiesta through the distribution of all of the outstanding shares of Fiesta Restaurant Group's common stock to the stockholders of Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. (the "Spin-off"). As a result of the Spin-off, since the distribution date we have been an independent public company and our common stock is traded on The NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “FRGI”.
We use a 52-53 week fiscal year ending on the Sunday closest to December 31. The fiscal year ended December 29, 2013 contained 52 weeks. The three and six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013 each contained thirteen and twenty-six weeks, respectively.
Company Overview
We own, operate and franchise two fast-casual restaurant brands, Pollo Tropical® and Taco Cabana®, which have over 25 years and 35 years, respectively, of operating history and loyal customer bases. Our Pollo Tropical restaurants offer a wide variety of freshly prepared Caribbean inspired food, while our Taco Cabana restaurants offer a broad selection of hand-made, freshly prepared and authentic Mexican food. We believe that both brands are differentiated from other restaurant concepts and offer a unique dining experience. We are positioned within the value-oriented fast-casual restaurant segment, which combines the convenience and value of quick-service restaurants with the variety, food quality, décor and atmosphere more typical of casual dining restaurants. Our open display kitchen format allows guests to view and experience our food being freshly-prepared and cooked to order. Additionally, almost all of our restaurants offer the convenience of drive-thru service. As of June 29, 2014, our company-owned restaurants included 112 Pollo Tropical restaurants and 166 Taco Cabana restaurants, including one Cabana Grill® (our elevated non-24 hour Taco Cabana format) restaurant.
We franchise our Pollo Tropical restaurants primarily internationally and, as of June 29, 2014, we had 35 franchised Pollo Tropical restaurants located in Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Honduras, Trinidad & Tobago, The Bahamas, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Panama, Dominican Republic, Guatemala and on college campuses in Florida. We have agreements for the continued development of franchised Pollo Tropical restaurants in certain of our existing markets, and we have commitments for additional non-traditional locations in Florida. As of June 29, 2014, we had four Taco Cabana franchised restaurants located in New Mexico and three non-traditional Taco Cabana locations on college campuses in Texas.
Recent and Future Events Affecting our Results of Operations
On November 12, 2013, we commenced a tender offer and consent solicitation for all of our outstanding $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of 8.875% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2016 (the "Notes"). The principal amount of Notes repurchased in the tender offer totaled $122.7 million.
On November 20, 2013, we sold 3,078,336 shares of Fiesta's common stock in an underwritten public offering at a price of $46.00 per share (excluding underwriting discounts and commissions) pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-192254). The aggregate net proceeds to us from the offering were approximately $135.3 million, reflecting gross proceeds of $141.6 million, net of underwriting fees of approximately $5.7 million and other offering costs of approximately $0.7 million.
On December 11, 2013, we irrevocably called for redemption the remaining $77.3 million principal amount of Notes that were not validly tendered and accepted for payment in the tender offer.
Also on December 11, 2013, we terminated our former senior secured revolving credit facility, which we refer to as our “former senior credit facility”, and entered into a new senior secured revolving credit facility, which we refer to as our "new senior credit facility". The new senior credit facility provides for aggregate revolving credit borrowings of up to $150 million (including $15 million available for letters of credit) and matures on December 11, 2018. The new senior credit facility also provides for potential incremental increases of up to $50 million to the revolving credit borrowings available under the new senior credit facility. On June 29, 2014, there was $66.0 million in outstanding borrowings under our new senior credit facility.

Interest expense decreased $4.3 million and $8.7 million in the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 as a result of the refinancing, repurchase and redemption of our Notes.
Executive Summary-Consolidated Operating Performance for the Three Months Ended June 29, 2014
Our second quarter 2014 results and highlights include the following:

Net income increased $4.3 million to $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.0 million, or $0.21 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to the net impact of the growth in revenues discussed below and the decrease in interest expense as a result of the refinancing transactions, which included the repurchase and redemption of our Notes and entering into our new senior credit facility.

Total revenues increased 9.4% in the second quarter of 2014 to $154.2 million compared to $140.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, driven primarily by an increase in the number of our company-owned restaurants and an increase in comparable restaurant sales of 6.7% for our Pollo Tropical restaurants and 2.8% for our Taco Cabana restaurants. The growth in comparable restaurant sales resulted primarily from an increase in average check of 1.1% at Pollo Tropical and 3.0% at Taco Cabana and an increase in transactions at Pollo Tropical of 5.6%, partially offset by a decrease in transactions at Taco Cabana of 0.2%.

During the second quarter of 2014, we opened six new company-owned Pollo Tropical restaurants and our first restaurant under our elevated non-24 hour Taco Cabana format, Cabana Grill. During the second quarter of 2013, we opened four new Pollo Tropical restaurants and three new Taco Cabana restaurants and closed one Pollo Tropical restaurant (which was relocated within the same trade area) and one Taco Cabana restaurant.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 to $22.4 million compared to $19.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to the net impact of the increase in revenues. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure of performance. For a discussion of our use of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, see "Management's Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

Consolidated Revenues. Revenues include restaurant sales, which consist of food and beverage sales, net of discounts, at our company-owned restaurants, and franchise royalty revenues and fees, which represent ongoing royalty payments that are determined based on a percentage of franchisee sales, franchise fees associated with new restaurant openings, and development fees associated with the opening of new franchised restaurants in a given market. Restaurant sales are influenced by new restaurant openings and closures of restaurants, and changes in comparable restaurant sales.
Total revenues increased 9.4% to $154.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $140.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. Restaurant sales also increased 9.4% to $153.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $140.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. The following table presents the primary drivers of the increase in restaurant sales for both Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana for the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013 (in millions):

Comparable restaurant sales for Pollo Tropical increased 6.7% in the second quarter of 2014. Comparable restaurant sales for Taco Cabana in the second quarter of 2014 increased 2.8%. Restaurants are included in comparable restaurant sales after they have been open for 18 months. Increases in comparable restaurant sales result from an increase in guest traffic and an increase in average check. The increase in average check is primarily driven by menu price increases. For Pollo Tropical, menu price increases drove an increase in restaurant sales of 1.6% in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the second quarter of 2013. For Taco Cabana, menu price increases drove an increase in restaurant sales of 1.3% in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the second quarter of 2013, while the remaining increase in average check is primarily driven by a positive change in sales mix due to the implementation of new menu boards.
Restaurants in new markets that haven't reached media efficiency generally have lower sales than restaurants in existing, media efficient markets.
Franchise revenues increased slightly to $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2013.
Operating costs and expenses. Operating costs and expenses include cost of sales, restaurant wages and related expenses, other restaurant expenses and advertising expenses. Cost of sales consists of food, paper and beverage costs including packaging costs, less purchase discounts. Cost of sales is generally influenced by changes in commodity costs, the sales mix of items sold and the effectiveness of our restaurant-level controls to manage food and paper costs. Key commodities, including chicken and beef, are generally purchased under contracts for future periods of up to one year.
Restaurant wages and related expenses include all restaurant management and hourly productive labor costs, employer payroll taxes, restaurant-level bonuses and related benefits. Payroll and related taxes and benefits are subject to inflation, including minimum wage increases and increased costs for health insurance, workers' compensation insurance and state unemployment insurance.
Other restaurant operating expenses include all other restaurant-level operating costs, the major components of which are utilities, repairs and maintenance, real estate taxes and credit card fees.
Advertising expense includes all promotional expenses including television, radio, billboards and other sponsorships and promotional activities.
Pre-opening costs include costs incurred prior to opening a restaurant, including restaurant employee wages and related expenses, travel expenditures, recruiting, training, promotional costs associated with the restaurant opening and rent, including any non-cash rent expense recognized during the construction period. Pre-opening costs are generally incurred beginning four to six months prior to a restaurant opening.

(1) Includes costs associated with remodels that are not subject to capitalization.
(2) Includes lower sanitation and various other costs.
Consolidated Restaurant Rent Expense. Restaurant rent expense includes base rent and contingent rent on our leases characterized as operating leases, reduced by amortization of gains on sale-leaseback transactions. Restaurant rent expense, as a percentage of total restaurant sales, increased to 4.8% in the second quarter of 2014 from 4.6% the second quarter of 2013 primarily as a result of new sale-leaseback transactions and new restaurants, which generally have higher rent.
Consolidated General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses are comprised primarily of (1) salaries and expenses associated with the development and support of our Company and brands and the management oversight of the operation of our restaurants; (2) legal, auditing and other professional fees and stock-based compensation expense; and (3) in 2013, costs incurred under the transition services agreement with the former parent company for administrative support services.
General and administrative expenses were $12.1 million in the second quarter of 2014 and $12.0 million in the second quarter of 2013. As a percentage of total revenues, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.9% in the second quarter of 2014 compared to 8.5% in the second quarter of 2013. The decrease was due primarily to the impact of higher sales on fixed costs.
Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA, which is one of the measures of segment profit or loss used by our chief operating decision maker for purposes of allocating resources to our segments and assessing their performance, is defined as earnings attributable to the applicable segment before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment and other lease charges, stock-based compensation expense and other income and expense. Adjusted EBITDA may not be necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. Adjusted EBITDA for each of our segments includes an allocation of general and administrative expenses associated with administrative support for executive management, information systems and certain accounting, legal and other administrative functions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure of performance. For a discussion of our use of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, see "Management's Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

Adjusted EBITDA for Pollo Tropical increased to $13.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $12.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 due primarily to the net impact of the increase in revenues. Adjusted EBITDA for Taco Cabana increased to $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 also primarily due to the net impact of the increase in revenues.
Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense increased to $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 due primarily to increased depreciation relating to new company-owned restaurant openings, partially offset by the impact of new sale-leaseback transactions.
Interest Expense. Interest expense decreased $4.4 million to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $5.0 million in the second quarter 2013 primarily due to the refinancing transactions, which included the repurchase and redemption of our Notes and entering into our new senior credit facility with revolving borrowings at lower interest rates than the Notes, as described above under "Recent and Future Events Affecting our Results of Operations".
Provision for Income Taxes. The provision for income taxes for the second quarter of 2014 was derived using an estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2014 of 38.3%, while the provision for income taxes for the second quarter of 2013 was derived using an estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2013 of 36.5%, excluding discrete items. The estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2014 is higher than the effective annual income tax rate estimated in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to the expiration of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit on December 31, 2013.
Discrete tax adjustments decreased the provision for income taxes by $28,000 in the second quarter of 2013. There were no discrete tax adjustments in the second quarter of 2014.
Net Income. As a result of the foregoing, we had net income of $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to net income of $5.0 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Consolidated Restaurant Rent Expense. Restaurant rent expense includes base rent and contingent rent on our leases characterized as operating leases, reduced by amortization of gains on sale-leaseback transactions. Restaurant rent expense, as a percentage of total restaurant sales, increased to 4.9% in the six months ended June 29, 2014 from 4.7% the six months ended of June 30, 2013 primarily as a result of new sale-leaseback transactions and new restaurants, which generally have higher rent.
Consolidated General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses were $24.3 million in the six months ended June 29, 2014 and $24.2 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013. As a percentage of total revenues, general and administrative expenses decreased to 8.1% in the six months ended June 29, 2014 compared to 8.8% in the six months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease was due primarily to the impact of higher sales on fixed costs.
Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA, which is one of the measures of segment profit or loss used by our chief operating decision maker for purposes of allocating resources to our segments and assessing their performance, is defined as earnings attributable to the applicable segment before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment and other lease charges, stock-based compensation expense and other income and expense. Adjusted EBITDA may not be necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. Adjusted EBITDA for each of our segments includes an allocation of general and administrative expenses associated with administrative support for executive management, information systems and certain accounting, legal and other administrative functions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure of performance. For a discussion of our use of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, see "Management's Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".
Adjusted EBITDA for Pollo Tropical increased to $27.1 million in the six months ended June 29, 2014 from $21.8 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013 due primarily to the net impact of the increase in revenues. Adjusted EBITDA for Taco Cabana increased to $16.0 million in the six months ended June 29, 2014 from $13.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013 also primarily due to the net impact of the increase in revenues.

25


Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense increased to $10.9 million in the six months ended June 29, 2014 from $10.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013 due primarily to increased depreciation relating to new company-owned restaurant openings, partially offset by the impact of new sale-leaseback transactions.
Interest Expense. Interest expense decreased $8.8 million to $1.2 million in the six months ended June 29, 2014 from $10.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013 primarily due to the refinancing transactions, which included the repurchase and redemption of our Notes and entering into our new senior credit facility with revolving borrowings at lower interest rates than the Notes, as described above under "Recent and Future Events Affecting our Results of Operations".
Provision for Income Taxes. The provision for income taxes for the six months ended June 29, 2014 was derived using an estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2014 of 38.3%, while the provision for income taxes for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was derived using an estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2013 of 36.5%, excluding discrete items. The estimated effective annual income tax rate for 2014 is higher than the effective annual income tax rate estimated in the six months ended June 30, 2013, primarily due to the expiration of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit on December 31, 2013.
Discrete tax adjustments, which include the retroactive effect of renewing the 2012 Work Opportunity Tax Credit in 2013, decreased the provision for income taxes by $0.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013. There were no discrete tax adjustments in the six months ended June 29, 2014.
Net Income. As a result of the foregoing, we had net income of $18.0 million in the six months ended June 29, 2014 compared to net income of $9.8 million in the six months ended June 30, 2013.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
We do not have significant receivables or inventory and receive trade credit based upon negotiated terms in purchasing food products and other supplies. We are able to operate with a substantial working capital deficit because:
restaurant operations are primarily conducted on a cash basis;
rapid turnover results in a limited investment in inventories; and
cash from sales is usually received before related liabilities for food, supplies and payroll become due.
Capital expenditures and payments related to our lease obligations represent significant liquidity requirements for us. We believe cash generated from our operations, availability of borrowings under our new senior credit facility and proceeds from any sale-leaseback transactions which we may choose to do will provide sufficient cash availability to cover our anticipated working capital needs, capital expenditures and debt service requirements for the next twelve months.
Operating Activities. Net cash provided by operating activities for the first six months of 2014 and the first six months of 2013 was $25.9 million and $14.9 million, respectively. The increase in net cash provided by operating activities in the first six months of 2014 was driven by the increase in net income and the change in operating assets and liabilities primarily as a result of a reduction in interest expense payments as a result of the refinancing transactions, which included the repurchase and redemption of our Notes and entering into our new senior credit facility with revolving borrowings at lower interest rates than the Notes, as described herein and above under "Recent and Future Events Affecting our Results of Operations".
Investing Activities. Net cash used for investing activities in the first six months of 2014 and 2013 was $29.3 million and $23.6 million, respectively. Capital expenditures are the largest component of our investing activities and include: (1) new restaurant development, which may include the purchase of real estate; (2) restaurant remodeling, which includes the renovation or rebuilding of the interior and exterior of our existing restaurants; (3) other restaurant capital expenditures, which include capital maintenance expenditures for the ongoing reinvestment and enhancement of our restaurants; and (4) corporate and restaurant information systems.

Excludes restaurant repair and maintenance expenses included in other restaurant operating expenses in our consolidated financial statements. For the six months ended June 29, 2014 and June 30, 2013, total restaurant repair and maintenance expenses were approximately $7.0 million and $5.7 million, respectively.
For the full year 2014, we anticipate that total capital expenditures will range from $65 million to $70 million. Capital expenditures in 2014 are expected to include $50 million to $55 million for development of new restaurants and purchase of related real estate for the opening of a total of 22 to 26 new Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana restaurants, including our first new elevated non-24 hour Taco Cabana format, Cabana Grill. Our capital expenditures in 2014 are also expected to include expenditures of approximately $12.0 million to $14.0 million for the ongoing reinvestment in our Pollo Tropical and Taco Cabana restaurants for remodeling costs and capital maintenance expenditures and approximately $4.0 million to $6.0 million of other expenditures.
In the first six months of 2014, investing activities also included two sale-leaseback transactions related to our restaurant properties, the net proceeds from which were $5.7 million, as well as the sale of an excess Taco Cabana property, the net proceeds from which were $1.0 million. In the first six months of 2013, investing activities included two sale-leaseback transactions related to our restaurant properties, the net proceeds from which were $5.4 million, and the sale of an excess property, the net proceeds from which were $1.7 million. In the first six months of 2013 we purchased for $3.0 million two of our existing Taco Cabana restaurant properties to be sold in future sale-leaseback transactions.
