NEW YORK, NY (Business Wire) — February 17, 2022 — Shake Shack Inc. (“Shake Shack” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SHAK), today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended December 29, 2021.
Randy Garutti, Chief Executive Officer of Shake Shack, stated, “As we look back on 2021, we remain incredibly grateful and proud of how our Shack family has continued to overcome the many challenges we've faced. We are pleased to report a strong sales comeback in the fourth quarter with record full year system-wide sales results and same-Shack sales up 2.2% versus 2019. However, our sales were impacted by the sharp increase in Omicron cases in fiscal January, causing a decline in traffic, lost hours and Shack closures. While a return to pre-COVID movement patterns remains uncertain, we are pleased to see improvement through fiscal February, with same-Shack sales up approximately 13% month to date."
Garutti continued, "We remain confident in our strategic investments around Elevating our People, Digital Transformation, Format Evolution with drive-thru, and our commitment to delivering a great guest experience with an eye towards accelerated growth. We believe that Shake Shack is positioned to manage through ongoing headwinds. With our largest development schedule ever and a healthy balance sheet to support continued investments, we believe we will exit 2022 stronger than where we started and are incredibly excited for this next chapter in the Shake Shack story."

Fourth Quarter 2021 Review
Total revenue, which includes Shack sales and Licensing revenue, increased 29.0% from the fourth quarter 2020 to $203.3 million in the fourth quarter 2021. This increase is inclusive of the favorable impact of the 53rd week in the fourth quarter 2020, which resulted in incremental revenue of $11.1 million. Excluding the 53rd week, Total revenue in the fourth quarter 2021 increased 38.8%. This growth was due in part to the opening of 35 net new domestic Company-operated Shacks during the fiscal year 2021, as well as continued sales recovery across Shack markets.

Same-Shack sales grew 20.8% year-on-year in the fourth quarter 2021, compared to up 24.8% in the third quarter 2021. This year-on-year growth was driven by continued improvement across some of our hardest hit markets such as New York City, which saw same-Shack sales up 39% in the fourth quarter 2021. When compared to 2019, we saw growth for the first time in 2021, exiting the fourth quarter up 2.2%. Both our urban and suburban Shacks saw improvement versus 2019 in the fourth quarter 2021, even with many of our highest volume Shacks still down when compared to 2019. Our urban same-Shack sales were down only 4% in the fourth quarter 2021 versus 2019, an improvement from down 15% in the third quarter 2021. Suburban same-Shack sales were up 9% in the fourth quarter 2021 versus 2019. Contributing to this improvement were our mall based Shacks, which benefited from increased holiday shopping.

Average weekly sales were $74,000 in the fourth quarter 2021, up from $72,000 in the third quarter 2021. This improvement was due to increased menu prices and strength across urban markets.


Exhibit 99.1


During the fourth quarter 2021, total digital sales, including orders placed on the Shake Shack app, website and third-party delivery platforms, represented 42% of Shack sales. During the fourth quarter 2021 we grew our first time app and web purchasers base by more than 80% for the full year 2021. We have been able to retain around 80% of digital sales in fiscal December 2021 when compared to fiscal January 2021 when digital sales peaked. In the fourth quarter 2021, we launched our Black Truffle Burger and Truffle Fries which started as an early exclusive on our Company-owned app. These two items were the strongest performing limited time offerings of 2021 on our digital channels.

Licensing revenue for the fourth quarter 2021 was $7.4 million. In the quarter, our domestic Shacks benefited from increased levels of air travel, especially over the holiday period. Internationally, we saw relaxation of COVID restrictions in select markets in addition to five international openings in the fourth quarter 2021. Included in these five international openings is our second Shack in the city of Shenzhen, as we continue to expand across the Chinese market. While we saw a benefit of the overall global recovery in the fourth quarter, we understand that conditions continue to remain volatile and ever-changing.

During the fourth quarter 2021, the Company opened 13 new domestic Company-operated Shacks, five new international licensed Shacks and one new domestic licensed Shack.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter 2021 was $6.5 million, resulting in a negative operating loss margin of 3.2% compared to an operating loss of $12.2 million, or a negative operating loss margin of 7.8% for the fourth quarter 2020. For the fourth quarter 2021, Shack-level operating profit, a non-GAAP measure, was $32.2 million, or 16.4% as a percentage of Shack sales, compared to Shack-level operating profit of $29.6 million, or 15.8% of Shack sales in the third quarter 2021. The year-on-year increase in Shack-level operating profit was primarily due to sales leverage as the business saw less impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as lower delivery commissions as a result of lower digital sales mix. A reconciliation of Shack-level operating profit to Operating loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth in the schedules accompanying this release. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
General and administrative expenses increased 34.0% to $25.6 million in the fourth quarter 2021 from $19.1 million in the fourth quarter 2020. As a percentage of total revenue, general and administrative expenses increased to 12.6% for the fourth quarter 2021 from 12.1% in the fourth quarter 2020. This increase was primarily due to increased investment in our home office teams, marketing and IT to support development and digital initiatives, as the Company continues to invest for accelerated growth ahead.


Exhibit 99.1

Fiscal 2022 Outlook
The Company is providing revenue and sales guidance for the fiscal first quarter of 2022.
Current Q1 2022 Outlook
Total revenue$196 million to $201.4 million
Shack sales$190 million to $195 million
Licensing revenue$6 million to $6.4 million
Same-Shack sales versus 2021 high-single digits to low-double digits %
Shack-level operating profit margin11% to 14%
Fiscal first quarter and fiscal year 2022 guidance is derived from recent trends and does not assume material changes to the current operating environment, inclusive of any potential further COVID impacts.
Given the substantial uncertainty and resulting material economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is not providing full guidance for the fiscal year ending December 28, 2022. The timing of a return to pre-COVID sales levels is highly dependent upon the return of the high traffic areas that contributed to many of the strongest Shack sales, including those most reliant on travel, schools, offices and major gatherings. The timing of that recovery remains unknown today. Furthermore, there is uncertainty around the cost pressures facing our business due to inflation. As the Company approaches the two year mark in mid-March 2022 since the initial and extensive impact of COVID-19, it remains cautious about the near-term sales outlook, especially in its urban business.

Current 2022 Outlook
Domestic Company-operated Shack openings 45 to 50
Licensed Shack openings20 to 25
Total general and administrative expenses(1)
$108 million to $114 million
Equity-based compensation approximately $13 million
Depreciation expense $70 million to $75 million
Pre-opening costs $14 million to $17.5 million
Adjusted Pro-Forma Tax Rate28%-30%
(1)Includes approximately $12 million of the approximately $13 million total Equity-based compensation.

(3)Shack-level operating profit and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliations of Shack-level operating profit to Loss from operations and adjusted EBITDA to Net loss, the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, are set forth in the schedules accompanying this release. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”





Exhibit 99.1

SHAKE SHACK INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)

To supplement the Consolidated Financial Statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: Shack-level operating profit, Shack-level operating profit margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted pro forma net loss and adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share and adjusted pro forma effective tax rate (collectively the "non-GAAP financial measures").
Shack-Level Operating Profit
Shack-level operating profit is defined as Shack sales less Shack-level operating expenses including Food and paper costs, Labor and related expenses, Other operating expenses and Occupancy and related expenses.
How This Measure Is Useful
When used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, Shack-level operating profit and Shack-level operating profit margin are supplemental measures of operating performance that the Company believes are useful measures to evaluate the performance and profitability of its Shacks. Additionally, Shack-level operating profit and Shack-level operating profit margin are key metrics used internally by management to develop internal budgets and forecasts, as well as assess the performance of its Shacks relative to budget and against prior periods. It is also used to evaluate team member compensation as it serves as a metric in certain performance-based team member bonus arrangements. The Company believes presentation of Shack-level operating profit and Shack-level operating profit margin provides investors with a supplemental view of its operating performance that can provide meaningful insights to the underlying operating performance of the Shacks, as these measures depict the operating results that are directly impacted by the Shacks and exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, the ongoing operations of the Shacks. It may also assist investors to evaluate the Company's performance relative to peers of various sizes and maturities and provides greater transparency with respect to how management evaluates the business, as well as the financial and operational decision-making.
Limitations of the Usefulness of this Measure
Shack-level operating profit and Shack-level operating profit margin may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation. Presentation of Shack-level operating profit and Shack-level operating profit margin is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Shack-level operating profit excludes certain costs, such as General and administrative expenses and Pre-opening costs, which are considered normal, recurring cash operating expenses and are essential to support the operation and development of the Company's Shacks. Therefore, this measure may not provide a complete understanding of the Company's operating results as a whole and Shack-level operating profit and Shack-level operating profit margin should be reviewed in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of Shack-level operating profit to Loss from operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth below.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
EBITDA is defined as Net loss before interest expense (net of interest income), Income tax expense (benefit) and Depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA (as defined above) excluding equity-based compensation expense, deferred lease cost, Impairment loss on the disposal of assets, amortization of cloud-based software implementation costs, as well as certain non-recurring items that the Company does not believe directly reflect its core operations and may not be indicative of the Company's recurring business operations.
How These Measures Are Useful
When used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of operating performance that the Company believes are useful measures to facilitate comparisons to historical performance and competitors' operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used internally by management to develop internal budgets and forecasts and also serves as a metric in its performance-based equity incentive programs and certain bonus arrangements. The Company believes presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provides investors with a supplemental view of the Company's operating performance that facilitates analysis and comparisons of its ongoing business operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of the Company's ongoing operating performance.
Limitations of the Usefulness of These Measures
EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation. Presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA exclude certain normal recurring expenses. Therefore, these measures may not provide a complete understanding of the Company's performance and should be reviewed in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to Net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is set forth below.

Exhibit 99.1

SHAKE SHACK INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)
Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings (Loss) Per Fully Exchanged and Diluted Share
Adjusted pro forma net loss represents Net loss attributable to Shake Shack Inc. assuming the full exchange of all outstanding SSE Holdings, LLC membership interests ("LLC Interests") for shares of Class A common stock, adjusted for certain non-recurring items that the Company does not believe are directly related to its core operations and may not be indicative of recurring business operations. Adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share is calculated by dividing adjusted pro forma net loss by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding, assuming the full exchange of all outstanding LLC Interests, after giving effect to the dilutive effect of outstanding equity-based awards.
How These Measures Are Useful
When used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, adjusted pro forma net loss and adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share are supplemental measures of operating performance that the Company believes are useful measures to evaluate performance period-over-period and relative to its competitors. By assuming the full exchange of all outstanding LLC Interests, the Company believes these measures facilitate comparisons with other companies that have different organizational and tax structures, as well as comparisons period over period because it eliminates the effect of any changes in Net loss attributable to Shake Shack Inc. driven by increases in its ownership of SSE Holdings, which are unrelated to the Company's operating performance, and excludes items that are non-recurring or may not be indicative of ongoing operating performance.
Limitations of the Usefulness of These Measures
Adjusted pro forma net loss and adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation. Presentation of adjusted pro forma net loss and adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share should not be considered alternatives to Net loss and earnings (loss) per share, as determined under GAAP. While these measures are useful in evaluating the Company's performance, it does not account for the earnings (loss) attributable to the non-controlling interest holders and therefore does not provide a complete understanding of the Net loss attributable to Shake Shack Inc. Adjusted pro forma net loss and adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share should be evaluated in conjunction with GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of adjusted pro forma net loss to Net loss attributable to Shake Shack Inc., the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the computation of adjusted pro forma loss per fully exchanged and diluted share are set forth below.
