“After nine consecutive quarters of profitability, we are transitioning from a turnaround to a stable company primed for growth,” said Brandon
Solano, Chief Executive Officer of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. “Our fourth quarter and fiscal year show significant same store sales growth at both Pizza Inn and Pie Five, net income growth, EBITDA growth, and strong operating cash performance.”
“While maintaining the discipline of strong cost controls, we continue to invest in the future of our business,” Solano said. “We are laying the
foundation upon which our future performance will be built. We expect that key initiatives such as our Pizza Inn rebranding efforts, reimagined Pizza Inn buffet experience, and Pie Five menu relaunch, will provide returns long after our initial
investments.”
Earlier in September, RAVE announced a modernized Pizza Inn
logo, a
more confident version of the brand’s mascot, Jojo, and a fresh new retail design aimed at an enhanced consumer buffet experience with built-in social media shareability.
Solano continued, “While the restaurant industry abandons dine-in, we continue to lean into our differentiated strategy, focusing on the value and
variety of Pizza Inn’s buffet while opportunistically capturing delivery and carry-out. We know our customers are hungry for a connection and an ’experience‘ with their family, not just Covid-esq functional feeding, and we are well positioned to
deliver that need.”
“Our strong sales growth and focus on restaurant economics has significantly reduced closures, increased new store openings, and produced the first
Pizza Inn buffet unit count growth in 24 years.”
“Similarly, Pie Five is undergoing significant investment and changes. After six months of testing, we are currently launching the most significant
menu transformation in the brand’s history, focusing on differentiated pizzas made for the individual and eliminating large pizzas. We are also making operational and hospitality improvements to personalize consumers’ dine-in experience while
reducing third party delivery friction.”
Clint Fendley, Chief Financial Officer of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. further
explained, “The financial results for 2022’s fiscal year exemplify the continuous efforts put forth by our team to advance our position. During the fiscal year 2022, we increased income before taxes by $0.9 million, reduced our debt by $1.8
million and fully recognized our deferred tax asset of $5.7 million due to
the improving long
term earnings and growth prospects for our Company.
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, we also repurchased shares of our common stock for the first time in a decade for
Subsequent to fiscal year 2022, we have used $1.1 million to repurchase additional shares of our common stock. We look forward to fiscal 2023 as we
continue to invest in initiatives in both brands that resonate with our customers and drive growth and value for all stakeholders.”
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). However, the
Company also presents and discusses certain non-GAAP financial measures that it believes are useful to investors as measures of operating performance. Management may also use such non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the effectiveness of
business strategies and for planning and budgeting purposes. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed as an alternative or substitute for its financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles.
The Company considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be important supplemental measures of operating performance that are commonly used by securities
analysts, investors and other parties interested in our industry. The Company believes that EBITDA is helpful to investors in evaluating its results of operations without the impact of expenses affected by financing methods, accounting methods and
the tax environment. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides additional useful information to investors by excluding non-operational or non-recurring expenses to provide a measure of operating performance that is more comparable from
period to period. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for evaluating operating performance, assessing the effectiveness of business strategies, projecting future capital needs, budgeting and other planning purposes.
“EBITDA” represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. “Adjusted EBITDA” represents earnings before interest, taxes,
depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, severance, gain/loss on sale of assets, costs related to impairment and other lease charges, franchise default and closed store revenue/expense, and closed and non-operating store costs. A
reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to net income is included with the accompanying financial statements.
