Papa John's Reports Second Quarter 2007 Earnings

2007 Earnings Guidance Updated

Highlights


LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 7, 2007--Papa John's International, Inc. (NASDAQ: PZZA) today announced revenues of $256.3 million for the second quarter of 2007, representing an increase of 6.1% from revenues of $241.6 million for the same period in 2006. Net income for the second quarter of 2007 was $7.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share (including an after-tax loss of $5.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, from the consolidation of the results of the franchisee-owned cheese purchasing company, BIBP Commodities, Inc. (BIBP), a variable interest entity), compared to last year's second quarter net income of $15.3 million, or $0.46 per diluted share (including an after-tax gain of $4.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, from the consolidation of BIBP).

Revenues were $516.9 million for the six months ended July 1, 2007, representing an increase of 6.8% from revenues of $483.9 million for the same period in 2006. Net income for the six months ended July 1, 2007 was $20.2 million, or $0.66 per diluted share (including a net loss of $5.5 million or $0.18 per diluted share, from the consolidation of BIBP), compared to last year's net income of $31.3 million, or $0.93 per diluted share (including net income of $7.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, from the consolidation of BIBP).

"While disappointed with our negative comps for the second quarter, I am proud of how our system performed during the quarter in a very challenging competitive and cost environment," commented Papa John's president and chief executive officer, Nigel Travis. "If you look at the second quarter on a historical basis, our domestic system has posted industry-leading 3.6% positive comparable sales on a two-year combined basis and 9.7% on a three-year basis. We have also put strong cost control measures in place to manage through a very challenging cost environment for the remainder of the year, while continuing to make good progress in net new restaurant openings and growing our international business."

Revenues Comparison
Consolidated revenues were $256.3 million for the second quarter, an increase of $14.7 million or 6.1%, over the corresponding 2006 period. The increase in revenues was principally due to a $14.2 million increase in domestic company-owned restaurant revenues, reflecting the acquisition of 54 restaurants during the last five months of 2006 and the acquisition of 19 restaurants during the first six months of 2007, partially offset by the quarter's decrease in comparable sales. Other sales increased $5.2 million due to expanded commercial volumes at our print and promotions operations. Commissary sales declined $4.7 million principally due to lower prices on certain commodities, primarily cheese. The average equivalent block price per pound of cheese as sold from BIBP to PJ Food Service was $1.379 for the second quarter of 2007 as compared to $1.482 for the same quarter of the prior year.

For the six-month period ending July 1, 2007, consolidated revenues increased $32.9 million, or 6.8%, principally due to the reasons mentioned above.

Operating Results and Cash Flow

Operating Results

Our pre-tax income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2007 was $11.1 million, compared to $24.2 million for the corresponding period in 2006. For the six months ended July 1, 2007, pre-tax income was $31.8 million compared to $49.0 million for the corresponding period of 2006. Excluding the impact of the consolidation of BIBP, second quarter 2007 pre-tax income from continuing operations was $19.4 million, an increase of $1.5 million (8.4%) over 2006 comparable results of $17.9 million, and pre-tax income for the six months ended July 1, 2007 was $40.5 million, an increase of $3.2 million (8.6%) over the 2006 comparable results of $37.3 million. The increases of $1.5 million and $3.2 million in pre-tax income from continuing operations for the three- and six-month periods ended July 1, 2007, respectively (excluding the consolidation of BIBP), are principally due to the following (analyzed on a segment basis -- see the Summary Financial Data table that follows for the reconciliation of segment income to consolidated income below):


The following table summarizes our recorded expense associated with our management incentive programs:


Three Months Six Months
Ended Ended
------------- --------------
Jun-07 Jun-06 Jun-07 Jun-06

Stock option expense $ 889 $1,184 $1,855 $1,882

Performance unit plan (652) 565 (150) 1,353
Management incentive bonus plan 125 1,966 1,750 3,952
----------------------------
Total expense $ 547 $3,763 $3,703 $7,235
============================

The decrease in the executive performance unit incentive plan expense was primarily due to the units forfeited by our Founder Chairman due to a change in status from an employee director of the company to a non-employee director.

The annual management incentive bonus plan is based on the company's annual operating income performance and certain sales measures as compared to pre-established targets. The decrease in the expense for the three- and six-month periods in 2007 as compared to the corresponding prior year periods was principally due to updated sales and operating income projections for the full year and the transition of the Founder Chairman to a non-employee director status.

Net interest expense, which is included in the unallocated corporate segment, increased approximately $1.2 million and $2.4 million for the three- and six-month periods ended July 1, 2007, respectively, as compared to the corresponding 2006 period, principally due to a higher average debt balance resulting from our share repurchase program and franchise restaurant acquisitions during the last twelve months. The increase in net interest costs was offset, in this operating segment, by an increase in allocations to the operating units for the three and six months ended July 1, 2007, as compared to the corresponding periods of 2006, partially due to an increase in the number of company-owned restaurants that are supported.

The effective income tax rate was 36.9% and 36.6% for the three and six months ended July 1, 2007, respectively, and 37.0% for the same periods in 2006.

Cash Flow
Cash flow from continuing operations was $26.2 million in the first six months of 2007 as compared to $37.2 million for the comparable period in 2006. The consolidation of BIBP decreased cash flow from operations by approximately $8.7 million in 2007 and increased cash flow from operations by approximately $11.7 million in 2006. Excluding the impact of the consolidation of BIBP, cash flow from continuing operations increased $9.4 million in the first six months of 2007 as compared to the corresponding 2006 period, primarily due to an increase in net income as described above.

Form 10-Q Filing
See the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of our quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for additional information concerning our operating results and cash flow for the three- and six-month periods ended July 1, 2007.

Comparable Sales, System-wide Sales and Unit Count
Domestic system-wide comparable sales for the second quarter decreased 1.1% (composed of a 1.5% decrease at company-owned restaurants and a 0.9% decrease at franchised restaurants). Domestic system-wide comparable sales for the six months ended July 1, 2007 decreased 0.4% (composed of a 0.4% decrease at both company-owned and franchised restaurants). Comparable sales percentage represents the change in year-over-year sales for the same base of restaurants for the same calendar quarter.

Worldwide system sales increased 2.1% to $527.1 million for the second quarter of 2007 and increased 3.1% to $1.07 billion for the six months ended July 1, 2007 as compared to the same periods of the prior year. The following table summarizes system-wide sales for the three- and six-month periods ended July 1, 2007, and the comparable 2006 periods on an actual U.S. dollar basis (dollars in thousands):

================================

During the second quarter of 2007, 47 domestic restaurants (nine company-owned and 38 franchised) were opened, including 13 franchised units in Live Nation amphitheaters under our recently announced agreement. Additionally, 18 international franchised restaurants were opened, while 17 domestic and two international franchised restaurants were closed, resulting in 46 net openings worldwide for the quarter. There were 75 net openings worldwide for the first six months of 2007. Our total domestic development pipeline as of July 1, 2007 included approximately 330 restaurants scheduled to open over the next nine years.

At July 1, 2007, there were 3,090 Papa John's restaurants (614 company-owned and 2,476 franchised) operating in all 50 states and 27 countries. The company-owned unit count includes 119 restaurants operated in majority-owned domestic joint venture arrangements, the operating results of which are fully consolidated into the company's results.

Acquisition / Disposition Activity
During the second quarter, the company completed the acquisition of 13 franchised Papa John's restaurants in Georgia. The purchase price, which was paid in cash, was $7.4 million, of which approximately $6.5 million was recorded as goodwill.

Effective July 2, 2007, the company acquired 31 franchised Papa John's restaurants located in Missouri and Kansas. The purchase price of $10.2 million, of which approximately $7.4 million was recorded as goodwill, was paid in cash and is subject to post-closing adjustments. Effective July 30, 2007, the company acquired 11 franchised Papa John's restaurants located in the Washington D.C. area through our 70% owned joint venture, Colonel's Limited, LLC. The purchase price was $6.1 million, which was paid in cash and is subject to post-closing adjustments, of which approximately $4.7 million was recorded as goodwill.

International Update
A total of 18 restaurants were opened in international markets during the second quarter of 2007, of which eight were located in our fastest-growing markets, Korea and China. In addition, our new franchisee in Mexico City opened its first restaurant during the quarter and recently entered into an agreement to open a Papa John's restaurant in the Mexico City airport in late 2007.

As of July 1, 2007, the company had a total of 121 corporate and franchised restaurants open in Korea and China and contractual agreements for an additional 369 Papa John's franchised restaurants to be opened in those countries over the next seven years. Our total international development pipeline as of July 1, 2007 included approximately 800 restaurants scheduled to open over the next nine years.

Share Repurchase Activity
The company repurchased approximately 343,000 shares of its common stock at an average price of $29.90 per share, or a total of $10.3 million, during the second quarter of 2007, and 1.2 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $29.29 per share, or a total of $35.8 million, during the first six months of 2007. A total of 465,000 and 647,000 shares of common stock were issued upon the exercise of stock options for the three- and six-month periods ended July 1, 2007. Subsequent to the second quarter 2007, through August 1, 2007, the company repurchased an additional $7.2 million of common stock (249,000 shares at an average price of $28.85 per share).

As a result, there were 30.6 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the second quarter of 2007 as compared to 33.3 million for the same period in 2006. Approximately 30.1 million actual shares of the company's common stock were outstanding as of July 1, 2007. The company's board of directors has authorized the repurchase of up to an aggregate $675 million of common stock through December 30, 2007. Since the inception of the repurchase program in 1999, through July 1, 2007, the company has repurchased approximately 39.3 million shares at a total cost of $638.0 million (average price of $16.22 per share).

The company's share repurchase activity increased earnings per diluted share from continuing operations by $0.02 for the six-month period ended July 1, 2007 (no impact on the second quarter of 2007).

2007 Earnings Guidance Updated
The company today increased its previously disclosed earnings per share guidance for 2007 from the range of $1.52 to $1.58, excluding any potential impact from the required consolidation of BIBP, to a range of $1.56 to $1.60. The increase in the projected earnings per share guidance for 2007 is due to our second quarter results which exceeded our previous expectations.

The following table compares certain key operating assumptions included in the updated earnings guidance to the assumptions used in the original guidance provided on December 7, 2006 (excludes the consolidation of BIBP):

Forward-Looking Statements
Except for historical information, this announcement contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements reflect management's expectations based upon currently available information and data; however, actual results are subject to future events and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to materially differ from those projected in these statements. Certain factors that can cause actual results to materially differ include: the uncertainties associated with litigation; changes in pricing or other marketing or promotional strategies by competitors, which may adversely affect sales; new product and concept developments by food industry competitors; the ability of the company and its franchisees to meet planned growth targets and operate new and existing restaurants profitably; general economic conditions; increases in or sustained high cost levels of food, paper, utilities, fuel, employee compensation and benefits, insurance and similar costs; the ability to obtain ingredients from alternative suppliers, if needed; health- or disease-related disruptions or consumer concerns about commodities supplies; the selection and availability of suitable restaurant locations; negotiation of suitable lease or financing terms; constraints on permitting and construction of restaurants; local governmental agencies' restrictions on the sale of certain food products; higher-than-anticipated construction costs; the hiring, training and retention of management and other personnel; changes in consumer taste, demographic trends, traffic patterns and the type, number and location of competing restaurants; franchisee relations; the possibility of impairment charges if our United Kingdom operations or recently acquired restaurants perform below our expectations; federal and state laws governing such matters as wages, benefits, working conditions, citizenship requirements and overtime, including legislation to further increase the federal and state minimum wage; and labor shortages in various markets resulting in higher required wage rates. The above factors might be especially harmful to the financial viability of franchisees or company-owned operations in under-penetrated or emerging markets, leading to greater unit closings than anticipated. Increases in projected claims losses for the company's self-insured coverage or within the captive franchise insurance program could have a significant impact on our operating results. Additionally, domestic franchisees are only required to purchase seasoned sauce and dough from our quality control centers (QC Centers) and changes in purchasing practices by domestic franchisees could adversely affect the financial results of our QC Centers. Our international operations are subject to additional factors, including political and health conditions in the countries in which the company or its franchisees operate; currency regulations and fluctuations; differing business and social cultures and consumer preferences; diverse government regulations and structures; ability to obtain high-quality ingredients and other commodities in a cost-effective manner; and differing interpretation of the obligations established in franchise agreements with international franchisees. Further information regarding factors that could affect the company's financial and other results is included in the company's Forms 10-Q and 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(A) Management considers EBITDA to be a meaningful indicator of
operating performance from continuing operations before depreciation,
amortization, net interest and income taxes. EBITDA provides us with
an understanding of one aspect of earnings before the impact of
investing and financing transactions and income taxes. While EBITDA
should not be construed as a substitute for net income or a better
indicator of liquidity than cash flows from operating activities,
which are determined in accordance with accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), it is included herein
to provide additional information with respect to the ability of the
company to meet its future debt service, capital expenditure and
working capital requirements. EBITDA is not necessarily a measure of
the company's ability to fund its cash needs and it excludes
components that are significant in understanding and assessing our
results of operations and cash flows. In addition, EBITDA is not a
term defined by GAAP and as a result our measure of EBITDA might not
be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
The above EBITDA calculation includes the operating results of BIBP
Commodities, Inc., a variable interest entity.
