Arcos Dorados’ first quarter as reported revenues increased 18.7%, largely driven by constant currency revenue growth of 17.0%, coupled with a positive impact of currency translation. Constant currency revenue growth reflected a 19.4% expansion in systemwide comparable sales, mainly driven by average check growth. Traffic was also positive in the quarter.

First quarter consolidated as reported Adjusted EBITDA increased 30.0%, driven by constant currency growth of 30.9%. Brazil was the key contributor to Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter, followed by SLAD and the Caribbean division, which were partially offset by a decline in NOLAD’s Adjusted EBITDA.

The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 70 basis points to 8.0%, mainly due to margin improvements in Brazil, SLAD and the Caribbean division. This was partially offset by a margin decline in NOLAD. Efficiencies in Food and Paper (F&P) and G&A expenses as a percentage of revenues more than offset higher Payroll and a negative variance in Other operating income.

As reported, consolidated G&A increased by 12.5% year-over-year. However, as a percentage of revenues it decreased 40 basis points. Importantly, G&A grew by 11.9% year-over-year on a constant currency basis versus the first quarter of 2016, which was below the estimated blended rate of inflation for the Company’s G&A.

Excluding the Company’s Venezuelan operation, as reported revenues increased 18.3% year-over-year, while constant currency growth was 9.2%. The appreciation of the Brazilian real more than offset the depreciation of the Argentine peso, as well as other currencies in the Company’s territories, including the Mexican peso. Constant currency revenue growth was supported by a 9.6% increase in systemwide comparable sales, driven by average check growth and positive traffic in all divisions.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 25.8% on an as reported basis, or 8.4% in constant currency terms. The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 40 basis points to 7.9%, driven by efficiencies in F&P and G&A, partially offset by a negative variance in Other Operating Income (expense) and higher Payroll expenses as a percentage of revenues.

Non-operating Results

Non-operating results for the first quarter reflected an $8.6 million foreign currency exchange loss, versus a gain of $16.7 million last year. The appreciation of the Mexican peso from the previous quarter end generated a loss related to intercompany balances. This was partially offset by the appreciation of the Brazilian real, which generated a gain related to intercompany balances. Net interest expense increased $2.2 million year-over-year to $16.4 million in the quarter. Interest expenses were lower on the 2023 USD Notes due to the reduced principal balance, which was more than offset by higher interest expenses on the BRL-denominated debt.

The Company reported an income tax expense of $22.3 million in the quarter, compared to an income tax expense of $8.3 million in the prior year period.

First quarter net income attributable to the Company totaled $40.6 million, compared to net income of $16.1 million in the same period of 2016. The improvement reflects stronger operating results, which in the first quarter of this year included $52.5 million from the Company’s asset monetization initiatives, partially offset by a negative variance in foreign exchange results coupled with higher net interest and income tax expenses.

The Company reported earnings per share of $0.19 in the first quarter of 2017, compared to earnings per share of $0.08 in the previous corresponding period. Total weighted average shares for the first quarter of 2017 were 210,711,224, as compared to 210,538,896 in the first quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin       12.2%                 12.4%            
 

Brazil’s as reported revenues increased by 24.7%, supported by an almost 20% year-over-year average appreciation of the Brazilian real. Excluding the impact of currency translation, constant currency revenues increased 0.7% year-over-year and were negatively impacted by the refranchising of certain company-operated restaurants during the last twelve months. The shift to a greater percentage of franchised restaurants negatively impacts total revenue, as company-operated restaurant sales are replaced by rental income received from the Company’s sub-franchisees. In the quarter, total systemwide sales growth was 5.6%, while systemwide comparable sales grew 3.7%, driven by average check growth and slightly positive traffic. This was achieved despite a still soft consumer environment in the country.

Marketing activities in the quarter included the extension of the new affordability platform “Clássicos do Dia” or “Daily Classics”, which drove volume growth. Also in the quarter, the Company launched the “Original Mex” premium burger as part of the Signature Line and the McFlurry “Laka Diamante Negro”, among others.

As reported Adjusted EBITDA increased 26.8% year-over-year and 2.6% on a constant currency basis. The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 20 basis points to 12.4%, driven by efficiencies in F&P costs and Occupancy and other operating expenses. The leverage in the aforementioned costs and expenses more than offset higher Occupancy expenses from franchised restaurants and a negative variance in Other operating income (expense), net, due to higher refranchising activity in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin       9.0%                 6.2%            
 

NOLAD’s as reported revenues decreased 1.1% year-over-year as constant currency growth of 5.2% was more than offset by currency translation impacts, mainly derived from the 13% year-over-year average depreciation of the Mexican peso. Systemwide comparable sales increased 3.7%, driven by average check growth combined with a modest increase in traffic across the division.

Marketing initiatives in the quarter included the extension of the affordability platform “McTrío 3x3”, and the “Martes de McDonald’s” campaign in Mexico. Also during the quarter, the Company launched the Signature Line in Mexico with the introduction of the Club House premium burger. Within the desserts category, the Company offered a Valentine-themed cone, among others.

As reported Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 31.9%, or 33.2% on a constant currency basis, mainly due to a tough environment in Mexico, which included inflationary pressures on various cost line items. The Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased 280 basis points to 6.2% in the first quarter, with higher F&P costs, G&A and Occupancy and other operating expenses as a percentage of revenues.

SLAD’s as reported revenues increased 22.9% as constant currency growth of 27.0% more than offset negative currency translation impacts resulting from the 9% year-over-year average depreciation of the Argentine peso. Systemwide comparable sales increased 27.7%, primarily driven by average check growth coupled with an increase in traffic.

Marketing activities in the quarter included the extension of the new affordability platform “Combo del Día” and the “Antojos” campaign, based on core menu items. Also in the quarter, the Company introduced the Cheddar & Bacon fries and the McFlurry Milka Oreo in the Dessert category, among others.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 25.0% on an as reported basis and rose 27.9% in constant currency terms. The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 20 basis points to 9.0%, driven by efficiencies in F&P costs and G&A expenses. These factors were partially offset by higher Occupancy and other operating expenses and Payroll costs as a percentage of revenues.

The Caribbean division’s as reported revenues increased 9.9%, as constant currency growth of 56.2% exceeded currency translation impacts derived from the remeasurement of the results of the Venezuelan operation at a weaker year-over-year average exchange rate. Systemwide comparable sales increased 72.4%, with inflation-driven average check growth more than offsetting a decrease in traffic.

Marketing initiatives in the quarter included the launch of the Crispy Onion BBQ premium burger as part of the Signature Line and the consolidation of “Almuerzos Colombianos”. Also in the quarter, the Company refreshed its affordability platform with the introduction of the “Silvestre” burger and included Sing, Lego Batman and Nerf in the Happy Meal.

As reported Adjusted EBITDA totaled $5.6 million in the first quarter, compared with $2.5 million in the prior year quarter. The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 280 basis points to 5.3%, mainly driven by efficiencies in Payroll and F&P costs.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $3.4 million, compared to $2.3 million in the same period of 2016. The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 110 basis points to 3.9%, mainly driven by efficiencies in Payroll expenses, F&P costs, and Occupancy expenses from franchised restaurants, partially offset by higher Occupancy and Other Operating expenses and G&A as a percentage of revenues.

Quarter Highlights & Recent Developments

Re-Development Initiative

Since inception and through March 31, 2017, the Company has received cumulative cash proceeds of around $128 million from the redevelopment of certain of its properties, primarily in Mexico.

Tender Offer 2023 Notes

On March 16, 2017, the Company launched a cash tender offer to purchase $80 million of its outstanding 2023 Notes, at a redemption price equal to 104%, which expired on April 12, 2017. The holders who tendered their 2023 Notes prior to March 29, 2017, received a redemption price equal to 107%. As a consequence of the cash tender offer, on April 4 and April 18, 2017 the Company redeemed 11.6% of the outstanding principal. The total payment was $48.9 million (including $3.2 million of early tender payment) plus accrued and unpaid interest.

Issuance of 2027 Notes

On April 4, 2017, the Company issued senior notes for an aggregate principal amount of $265 million, which are due in 2027. The 2027 Notes bear interest of 5.875% per year. Periodic payment of principal is not required and interest is paid semiannually, in April and October, commencing on October 4, 2017. The proceeds from the issuance of the 2027 Notes were used to repay the Secured Loan Agreement and unwind the related derivative instruments, to pay the principal and premium on the 2023 Notes in connection with the aforementioned tender offer, and for general corporate purposes.

Annual General Shareholders Meeting

The Company held its Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on April 24, 2017. All proposals were approved.

Definitions:

Systemwide comparable sales growth: refers to the change, measured in constant currency, in our Company-operated and franchised restaurant sales in one period from a comparable period for restaurants that have been open for thirteen months or longer. While sales by our franchisees are not recorded as revenues by us, we believe the information is important in understanding our financial performance because these sales are the basis on which we calculate and record franchised revenues, and are indicative of the financial health of our franchisee base.

Constant currency basis: refers to amounts calculated using the same exchange rate over the periods under comparison to remove the effects of currency fluctuations from this trend analysis.

To better discern underlying business trends, this release uses non-GAAP financial measures that segregate year-over-year growth into two categories: (i) currency translation, (ii) constant currency growth. (i) Currency translation reflects the impact on growth of the appreciation or depreciation of the local currencies in which we conduct our business against the US dollar (the currency in which our financial statements are prepared). (ii) Constant currency growth reflects the underlying growth of the business excluding the effect from currency translation.

Adjusted EBITDA: In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with the general accepted accounting principles (GAAP), within this press release and the accompanying tables, we use a non-GAAP financial measure titled ‘Adjusted EBITDA’. We use Adjusted EBITDA to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as our operating income plus depreciation and amortization plus/minus the following losses/gains included within other operating income (expenses), net, and within general and administrative expenses in our statement of income: gains from sale or insurance recovery of property and equipment; write-offs and related contingencies of property and equipment; impairment of long-lived assets and goodwill; stock-based compensation related to the special awards in connection with the initial public offering, under the 2011 Equity Incentive Plan; reorganization and optimization plan expenses; and incremental compensation related to the modification of our 2008 long-term incentive plan.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by backing out potential differences caused by variations such as capital structures (affecting net interest expense and other financial charges), taxation (affecting income tax expense) and the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense), which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance. Figure 11 of this earnings release include a reconciliation for Adjusted EBITDA. For more information, please see Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation in Note 9 of our quarterly financial statements (6-K Form) filed today with the S.E.C.
