NEW YORK, New York – December 27, 2017 --

Ark Restaurants Corp. (NASDAQ:ARKR) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended September 30, 2017.

 

Total revenues for the three-month period ended September 30, 2017 were $39,467,000 versus $38,529,000 for the three months ended October 1, 2016. The three-month period ended September 30, 2017 includes revenues of $4,166,000 related to the Oyster House properties in Gulf Shores and Spanish Fort, AL which were acquired on November 30, 2016 and $1,899,000 of revenues related to Sequoia DC which was partially open during the quarter after an extensive renovation. The three-month period ended October 1, 2016 includes revenues of $3,119,000 related to Sequoia DC and also includes revenues of $1,483,000 related to three properties closed during or subsequent to that prior year quarter.

 

Total revenues for the year ended September 30, 2017 were $153,877,000 versus $150,582,000 for the year ended October 1, 2016. The year ended September 30, 2017 includes revenues of $11,804,000 related to the Oyster House properties and $4,409,000 of revenues related to Sequoia DC. The year ended October 1, 2016 includes revenues of $10,078,000 related to Sequoia DC and also includes an additional $3,612,000 related to five properties that were closed during the period or subsequent to the prior year.

 

Excluding Sequoia DC same store sales increased 0.9% for the year ended September 30, 2017.

 

Net income for the three-month period ended September 30, 2017 was $1,311,000, or $0.38 per basic ($0.37 per diluted share) compared to $986,000, or $0.29 per basic share ($0.28 per diluted share), for the same three-month period last year. The Company’s EBITDA, adjusted for non-cash stock option expense and non-controlling interests, for the three-month period ended September 30, 2017 was $2,880,000 versus $2,811,000 during the same three-month period last year.

 

Net income for the year ended September 30, 2017 was $4,039,000, or $1.18 per basic share ($1.14 per diluted share) compared to $4,030,000, or $1.18 per basic share ($1.15 per diluted share) last year. The Company’s EBITDA, adjusted for non-cash stock option expense and non-controlling interests, for the year ended September 30, 2017 was $10,831,000 versus $11,203,000 last year. The decrease in EBITDA, adjusted for non-cash stock option expense and non-controlling interests, was offset by $1,637,000 resulting from the recognition of a gain (discussed below) in connection with the sale of our Rustic Inn, Jupiter, FL property. Without the gain related to the sale of real estate, EBITDA as adjusted for non-cash stock option expense and non-controlling interests would have been $9,194,000 for the year ended September 30, 2017. The year ended October 1, 2016, EBITDA includes positive adjustments for the impact of the reversal of commercial rent tax liabilities in the amount of $945,000 and an adjustment related to an overstatement of rent liability in the amount of $261,000.

 

On November 18, 2016, Ark Jupiter RI, LLC a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Purchase Agreement for $5,200,000 to purchase the land and building in which the Company operated its Rustic Inn location in Jupiter, Florida. Concurrent with the execution of the purchase, Ark Jupiter RI, LLC entered into a Sale Agreement to sell this same property for $8,250,000.

 

On November 30, 2016, the Company, through newly formed, wholly-owned subsidiaries, acquired the assets of the Original Oyster House, Inc., a restaurant and bar located in the City of Gulf Shores, Baldwin County, Alabama and the related real estate and an adjacent retail shopping plaza and the Original Oyster House II, Inc., a restaurant and bar located in the City of Spanish Fort, Baldwin County, Alabama and the related real estate. The total purchase price was for $10,750,000 plus inventory. The acquisition is accounted for as a business combination and was financed with a bank loan from the Company’s existing lender in the amount of $8,000,000 and cash from operations.

(a)EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and cumulative effect of changes in accounting principle. Although EBITDA is not a measure of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure enhances an overall understanding of the Company’s past financial performance as well as providing useful information to the investor because of its historical use by the Company as both a performance measure and measure of liquidity, and the use of EBITDA by virtually all companies in the restaurant sector as a measure of both performance and liquidity. However, investors should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flows from operating activities or any other measure for determining the Company’s operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with GAAP, it may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. A reconciliation of EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, pre-tax income, is included above.
