DALLAS (Aug. 12, 2010) – Brinker International, Inc. (NYSE: EAT) announced fourth quarter fiscal 2010 earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $0.44 compared to $0.45 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, before special items. For the full-year fiscal 2010, earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $1.18 compared to $1.28 in the prior year, before special items and excluding Macaroni Grill. In 2010, the fourth quarter and fiscal year included an additional operating week compared to fiscal 2009. (Reconciliations to GAAP earnings per diluted share amounts are included in Tables 3 and 4.)

On a GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share increased to $0.62 for the fourth quarter compared to $0.41 in the prior year. For the full-year fiscal 2010, earnings per diluted share increased to $1.34 from $0.77 in the prior year.

On June 30, 2010, the company completed the sale of On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina® to OTB Acquisition LLC, an affiliate of Golden Gate Capital, for gross proceeds of approximately $180 million and recognized a gain of approximately $16.5 million.

Quarterly Revenues

Brinker reported fourth quarter revenues of $743.1 million compared to $742.1 million in the prior year (14-weeks vs. 13-weeks). The company experienced a 3.4 percent decrease in comparable restaurant sales (see Table 1) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. Revenues were positively affected by a net increase in capacity of 3.0 percent due to the impact of the 53rd week in fiscal 2010, partially offset by the sale of 21 restaurants to a franchisee and 11 restaurant closures since the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009. Royalty and franchise revenues were $16.7 million for the quarter.
