The ONE Group Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

November 4, 2021 GMT

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 4, 2021--

The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. (“The ONE Group” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: STKS) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Financial highlights for the third quarter compared to the same period last year are as follows:

  • Total GAAP revenues increased 81.6% to $71.9 million from $39.6 million, a quarterly record.
  • GAAP net income attributable to The ONE Group was $11.7 million, or $0.34 net income per share ($0.11 adjusted net income per share)****, compared to GAAP net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.03 net loss per share ($0.01 adjusted net income per share)****.
  • Adjusted EBITDA** increased to $10.0 million from $4.7 million.

Sales highlights for the third quarter and October 2021 compared to the same periods in 2019 are as follows:

ADVERTISEMENT

  • Consolidated comparable sales* increased 44.7% for the quarter and 59.2% for the month of October.
  • Comparable sales* for STK increased 63.8% for the quarter and 73.7% for the month of October.
  • Comparable sales* for Kona Grill increased 26.9% for the quarter and 42.9% for the month of October.

“Achieving all-time high revenues for the second consecutive quarter during a pandemic is an incredible accomplishment and we could not be more pleased with our results. We generated significant comparable sales increases compared to both 2020 and 2019 as our guests demonstrated their eagerness for differentiated VIBE dining experiences. The strong comparable sales drove our average weekly volumes during the quarter to $285,000 and $99,000 for STK and Kona Grill respectively. In addition, this quarter, we broke the $100 million mark in total food and beverage sales at owned and managed locations, a Company first, and leveraged that top-line revenue into strong adjusted EBITDA despite ongoing commodity cost and labor staffing headwinds. This quarter, we prioritized our restaurant staffing levels in anticipation of a busy fourth quarter, and I’m proud to announce that our restaurants, at this time, are fully staffed. Our performance has certainly strengthened our leadership position in the high-end and polished casual segments, and we also have a robust pipeline of development opportunities, including new Kona Grill locations, which drive our continued confidence going forward,” said Emanuel “Manny” Hilario, President and CEO of The ONE Group.

*Comparable sales represent total U.S. food and beverage sales at owned and managed units opened for at least a full 18-months. This measure includes total revenue from our owned and managed locations. Two-year comparable sales relate to the comparison of comparable sales for the period of 7/1/2021 through 9/30/2021 to the period of 7/1/2019 through 9/30/2019 and for the period of 10/1/2021 through 10/31/2021 to the period of 10/1/2019 through 10/31/2019. The Company monitors sales growth at its established restaurant base in addition to growth that results from restaurant acquisitions; the Company has presented two-year comparable sales to illustrate how sales at its restaurant base before the COVID-19 pandemic compare to sales as COVID-19 restrictions have eased and the Company has begun to recover lost sales.

** Adjusted EBITDA. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment loss, non-cash rent expense, pre-opening expenses, non-recurring gains and losses including incremental costs related to COVID-19, stock-based compensation and certain transactional costs. Adjusted EBITDA has been presented in this press release and is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Refer to the reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA in this release.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total GAAP revenues increased $32.3 million, or 81.6%, to $71.9 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $39.6 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Total owned restaurant net revenues increased $30.1 million, or 79.7%, to $68.0 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $37.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was due to strong sales momentum as state and local governments eased seating capacity restrictions in the markets in which we operate, coupled with strong execution of our sales initiatives. Consolidated comparable sales* increased 78.9% in the third quarter of 2021 from the third quarter of 2020 and 44.7% from the third quarter of 2019. STK comparable sales increased 63.8% on a two-year basis while Kona Grill comparable sales increased 26.9%.

Management, license and incentive fee revenues increased $2.2 million, or 123.7%, to $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was the result of local governments easing seating capacity restrictions in the markets in which we operate, coupled with the opening of two managed STKs, one licensed STK and three managed F&B venues during 2021.

Restaurant Operating Profit*** increased to $11.6 million and represented 17.1% of Company-owned restaurant net revenues, in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $6.3 million, and 16.6% of Company-owned restaurant net revenues, in the third quarter of 2020. The improvement was primarily driven by higher sales and strong management of operating costs coupled with menu development and optimization as restaurants re-opened.

GAAP net income attributable to The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. in the third quarter of 2021 was $11.7 million, or $0.34 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.03 net loss per share, in the third quarter of 2020. Third quarter 2021 net income included a $10.0 million gain on CARES Act Loan forgiveness.

Adjusted Net Income**** attributable to The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. in the third quarter of 2021 was $3.7 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 net income per share, in the third quarter of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA** increased to $10.0 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2020.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $19.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, $24.9 million in term loan debt, and $10.7 million available on its revolving credit facility.

In July 2021, the Company was notified that the SBA had forgiven the CARES Act Loan for The ONE Group, LLC in its entirety. As a result, all CARES Act Loans have been forgiven.

On August 6, 2021, the Company amended its credit agreement with Goldman Sachs Bank USA. The amended agreement provides for a lower interest rate and additional flexibility and extends the maturity date for both the term loan and revolving credit facility by five years to August 2026. The amendment provides for a secured revolving credit facility of $12.0 million and a $25.0 million term loan. Other key modifications include the removal of restrictions for capital expenditures and the number of new Company-owned locations, the removal of an accumulation of cash provision which restricted revolver availability, and the removal of all financial covenants except a maximum net leverage ratio of 2.00 to 1.00.

***Restaurant Operating Profit. We define Restaurant Operating Profit as owned restaurant net revenue minus owned restaurant cost of sales and owned restaurant operating expenses. Restaurant Operating Profit has been presented in this press release and is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Refer to the reconciliation of Operating income (Loss)to Restaurant Operating Profit in this release.

****Adjusted Net Income (Loss). We define Adjusted Net Income as net income before gains on CARES Act Loan forgiveness, COVID-19 costs, one-time stock-based compensation and the income tax effect of the adjustment. Adjusted Net Income has been presented in this press release and is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Refer to the reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted Net Income in this release.

2021-2022 Restaurant Development

The Company intends to open thirteen new STK and F&B venues in 2021 and 2022 and three to five Kona Grill locations in 2022. There are currently two Company-owned STK restaurants (Dallas, TX and San Francisco, CA), one Kona Grill restaurant (Riverton, UT) and one managed STK restaurant (Stratford, UK) under construction. The Company has also entered into an agreement with REEF Kitchens to open three takeout and delivery venues featuring items from three of The ONE Group’s brands – STK, Kona Grill and Bao Yum.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

We prepare our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In this press release, we also make references to the following non-GAAP financial measures: total food and beverage sales at owned and managed units, Adjusted EBITDA, Restaurant Operating Profit and Adjusted Net Income (Loss).

Total food and beverage sales at owned and managed units. Total food and beverage sales at owned and managed units represents our total revenue from our owned operations as well as the revenue reported to us with respect to sales at our managed locations, where we earn management and incentive fees at these locations. We believe that this measure represents a useful internal measure of performance as it identifies total sales associated with our brands and hospitality services that we provide. Accordingly, we include this non-GAAP measure so that investors can review financial data that management uses in evaluating performance, and we believe that it will assist the investment community in assessing performance of restaurants and other services we operate, whether or not the operation is owned by us. However, because this measure is not determined in accordance with GAAP, it is susceptible to varying calculations and not all companies calculate these measures in the same manner. As a result, this measure as presented may not be directly comparable to a similarly titled measure presented by other companies. This non-GAAP measure is presented as supplemental information and not as an alternative to any GAAP measurements. The following table includes a reconciliation of our GAAP revenue to total food and beverage sales at our owned and managed units (in thousands):

Adjusted EBITDA. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment loss, non-cash rent expense, pre-opening expenses, non-recurring gains and losses, stock-based compensation, COVID-19 related expense and certain transactional costs. Not all the aforementioned items defining Adjusted EBITDA occur in each reporting period but have been included in our definitions of terms based on our historical activity. Adjusted EBITDA has been presented in this press release and is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP.

Restaurant Operating Profit. We define Restaurant Operating Profit as owned restaurant net revenue minus owned restaurant cost of sales and owned restaurant operating expenses.

We believe Restaurant Operating Profit is an important component of financial results because: (i) it is a widely used metric within the restaurant industry to evaluate restaurant-level productivity, efficiency, and performance, and (ii) we use Restaurant Operating Profit as a key metric to evaluate our restaurant financial performance compared to our competitors. We use these metrics to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period, to analyze the factors and trends affecting our business and to evaluate the performance of our restaurants.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss). We define Adjusted Net Income as net income before gains on CARES Act Loan forgiveness, COVID-19 costs, one-time stock-based compensation and acceleration and the income tax effect of the adjustment.

We believe that Adjusted Net Income is an appropriate measure of operating performance, as it provides a clear picture of our operating results by eliminating certain one-time expenses that are not reflective of the underlying business performance. Adjusted Net Income is included in this press release because it is a key metric used by management, and we believe that it provides useful information facilitating performance comparisons from period to period. Adjusted Net Income has limitations as an analytical tool and our calculation thereof may not be comparable to that reported by other companies; accordingly, you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
