Company Reports Positive Operating Income for the Third Quarter and Positive Comparable Sales for October

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, 2020 and provided an update related to COVID-19.

Highlights for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the same period last year are as follows:

  • Total GAAP revenues increased 79.0% to $39.6 million from $22.1 million;
  • Consolidated comparable sales* decreased 15.6% but improved sequentially through the quarter
    • Comparable sales decreased 24.8% for July, 17.2% for August, and 4.3% for September;
  • Comparable sales* for STK decreased 24.2% but improved sequentially through the quarter
    • Comparable sales decreased 34.9% for July, 28.2% for August, and 10.4% for September;
  • Comparable sales* for Kona Grill decreased 7.3% but improved sequentially through the quarter
    • Comparable sales decreased 16.2% for July and 6.7% for August, and increased 2.3% for September;
  • GAAP net loss attributable to The ONE Group was $0.9 million, or $0.03 net loss per share, compared to GAAP net income of $0.5 million, or $0.02 net income per share. GAAP net loss attributable to The ONE Group during the third quarter 2020 included $1.7 million of incremental costs related to COVID-19; and,
  • Adjusted EBITDA** increased 76.9% to $4.7 million compared to $2.6 million in the prior year.

For October 2020, consolidated comparable sales* increased 4.2%. For Kona Grill comparable sales* increased 8.6% and for STK comparable sales* increased 0.3%.

*Comparable sales represent total U.S. food and beverage sales at owned and managed units opened for at least a full 18-month period. This measure includes total revenue from our owned and managed locations. Revenues from locations where we do not directly control the event sales force (The W Hotel Westwood, CA) are excluded from this measure.

** 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 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 Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income in this release.

"We are very encouraged by the continued sequential improvement in our comparable sales, and particularly by positive consolidated comparable sales in October. This marks six consecutive months of building performance as we welcome guests back to our STK and Kona Grill restaurants for unique in-person and outdoor dining experiences. Kona Grill, aided by its suburban footprint and coupled with the execution of our brand strategies, continues to rebound extremely well, as demonstrated by its positive comparable sales performance in both September and October. Although STK continues to experience major capacity limitations in key markets like New York and Las Vegas, our comparable STK units delivered positive comparable sales in October and an impressive average weekly volume greater than $215,000 per restaurant," said Emanuel "Manny" Hilario, President and CEO of The ONE Group.

"Importantly, the normalization in our sales performance has been complemented by actively managing operating costs and implementing cost-saving measures that have resulted in higher restaurant-level margins and lower G&A as a percentage of revenues as well as positive operating income during the third quarter. Our immense progress these past few months in restoring our business has been made possible through the dedication of our teammates, who are making incredible efforts strengthening operations, focusing on health and safety protocols, and bringing VIBE dining to life with our guests," concluded Hilario.

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total GAAP revenues increased 79.0% to $39.6 million in the third quarter of 2020 from $22.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. The increase was primarily driven by the addition of the Kona Grill restaurants, which the Company acquired on October 4, 2019, partly offset by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including occupancy limitations in locations resuming in person dining due to state and local mandates.

Total owned restaurant net revenues increased 97.1% to $37.8 million in the third quarter of 2020 from $19.2 million in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the addition of the Kona Grill restaurants, which had revenues of $22.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, partially offset by limited in-person seating due to state and local mandates. Comparable restaurant sales decreased 15.6% in the third quarter of 2020.

Management, license and incentive fee revenues were $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $2.9 million in the third quarter of 2019. Management and license fee revenue decreased primarily as a result of temporary closures for managed locations due to COVID-19.

Restaurant Operating Profit*** was $6.3 million, or 16.6% of company-owned restaurant net revenues, in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $2.0 million, or 10.2% of company-owned restaurant net revenues, in the third quarter of 2019. The 640 basis point improvement was primarily driven by the strong management of operating costs coupled with menu development and optimizations as restaurants re-opened.

GAAP net loss attributable to The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. in the third quarter of 2020 was $0.9 million, or $0.03 net loss per share, compared to GAAP net income of $0.5 million, or $0.02 per share, in the third quarter of 2019. Third quarter 2020 net loss includes $1.7 million of incremental costs related to COVID-19.

Adjusted EBITDA** increased to $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2020 from $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2019.

***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 Restaurant Operating Profit to Operating income (loss) in this release.

COVID-19 Update

Starting in May 2020, state and local governments began easing restrictions on stay-at-home orders. The Company has taken significant steps to adapt its business to increase sales while providing a safe environment for guests and employees, which resulted in a significant increase in revenues in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2020. As the Company navigates through the pandemic, it has also implemented measures to reduce its costs including the deferral of capital projects and negotiations with suppliers and landlords regarding deferral or abatement of payments.

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had $26.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, $47.5 million in term loan debt, and $10.7 million available on its revolving credit facility, subject to restrictions.

Restaurant Re-Openings and Return to In-Person Dining

As of November 5, 2020, the Company has resumed in-person dining at 34 of 36 domestic restaurants and will resume in-person dining at its El Paso Kona Grill restaurant, which is currently open for takeout and delivery only, and re-open its San Juan STK restaurant as soon as conditions permit. The Company has also resumed in-person dining at three international STK restaurants and takeout and delivery only at one international STK location. The Company anticipates reopening three additional international STK locations in December and one international STK location, Ibiza, is seasonally closed. The Company has recalled approximately 3,000 furloughed employees since April 2020.

One Hospitality - F&B Venues

The Company continues to resume F&B operations with its partners where appropriate. As of November 5, 2020, the Company has resumed F&B operations for the following venues:

     

Domestic – The Hideout and W Hotel F&B

     

Italy – Radio Rooftop (Milan), ME Hotel F&B (Milan), and Angel Rooftop (Florence)

The Company's F&B operations in the United Kingdom are expected to resume operations in December 2020.

2020 Guidance Suspended

Given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the effects of the pandemic, the Company cannot reasonably predict when its restaurants will be able to return to normal dining room operations. This is subject to events beyond its control, including the effectiveness of governmental efforts to halt the spread of COVID-19.

The Company expects that its results of operations could be materially and negatively affected by COVID-19 for the remainder of 2020 and suspended annual guidance effective March 17, 2020.

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 and Adjusted EBITDA.

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 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.

We believe that adjusted EBITDA is an appropriate measure of operating performance, as it provides a clear picture of our operating results by eliminating certain non-cash expenses that are not reflective of the underlying business performance. We use this metric to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period and to analyze the factors and trends affecting our business as well as evaluate the performance of our units. Adjusted EBITDA 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. Adjusted EBITDA is included in this press release because it is a key metric used by management. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We use Adjusted EBITDA, alongside other GAAP measures such as net income, to measure profitability, as a key profitability target in our annual and other budgets, and to compare our performance against that of peer companies. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information facilitating operating performance comparisons from period to period.

Non-cash rent expense is included in owned restaurant operating expenses and general and administrative expense on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income.

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.
