The Wendy's Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $523,427,000 compared to $650,544,000 a year ago. Operating profit was $63,854,000 against $56,990,000 a year ago.

The 19.5% decrease resulted from lost revenue following the sale of 418 company-operated restaurants to franchisees as part of the company's system optimization initiative, partly offset by same-restaurant sales growth and increases in both rental income and franchise royalties. At the end of the second quarter, total debt was approximately $1.4 billion and net debt was about $1.1 billion. For the six months, the company reported revenues of $1,046,623,000 compared to $1,254,226,000 a year ago. Operating profit was $152,868,000 against $79,454,000 a year ago.

Capital expenditures were approximately $115 million as the year-over-year increase of approximately $33 million reflects the acceleration of Image Activation reimaging activity compared to last year. The expect third-quarter of 2014 same-restaurant sales growth to be slightly less than the low end of full-year outlook of 2.5 to 3.5%. Due to the impact of these restaurant closures, the company expects year-over-year third-quarter adjusted EBITDA to be approximately flat.

The company expects its total 2014 depreciation and amortization expense to decrease approximately 10% compared to 2013, including the impact of accelerated depreciation in both years, primarily as a result of the company's system optimization initiative. Average same-restaurant sales growth of 2.5 to 3.5% at company-operated restaurants. Capital expenditures of $280 to $290 million, including approximately $215 million for company-operated Image Activation restaurants. The company expects effective tax rate of 38 to 40%. The company anticipates the sale of its Canadian restaurants to reduce adjusted EBITDA by as much as $5 million in 2015, resulting in expected Adjusted EBITDA growth in the mid-to-high single-digit range in 2015. The company continues to expect mid-teens adjusted earnings per share growth beginning in 2015. The company expects the transactions to be neutral to adjusted EBITDA in 2016 and accretive to adjusted EBITDA in 2017 and thereafter. The company expects the transactions to be neutral to net income in 2015 and slightly accretive to net income thereafter. The company reported impairment of long-lived assets of $63,854,000 for the second quarter of 2014 against $56,990,000 a year ago.

Wendy's To Sell Canadian Restaurants

The Wendy's Company (NasdaqGS:WEN) announced a plan to sell all of its company-operated Canadian restaurants to franchisees and reinvest the sale proceeds to promote incremental development of franchised restaurants in Canada.

He said: "We believe a franchise model will help us penetrate the market more quickly than under a Company-operated restaurant model, as we plan to grow our Canadian restaurant base by approximately one-third and reimage approximately 60 percent of our Canadian restaurants by 2020."
