Domino's Pizza Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE:DPZ) this morning announced results for the third quarter of 2017, comprised of strong growth in same store sales,
global store counts and earnings per share.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  •  Revenues: UP 13.6% versus the prior year period, due primarily to higher supply chain revenues from increased volumes. Higher same store sales and store count growth in both our domestic and international markets also contributed to the increase in revenues.
  • Net Income: UP 19.3% primarily driven by an increase in same store sales growth and store count as well as higher supply chain volumes. The adoption of the new equity-based compensation accounting standard also positively impacted net income. These increases were partially offset by higher general and administrative expenses, primarily from investments in technological initiatives. Net income was also negatively impacted by expenses related to the Company's recapitalization.
  • Diluted EPS: UP 22.9% to $1.18. Diluted EPS, as adjusted: UP 32.3% to $1.27. These increases were driven by higher net income, as well as lower diluted share count, primarily as a result of the share repurchases made during the trailing four quarters.
  • Same store sales growth: UP: 8.4%
    • Domestic Company-owned stores: UP 8.4%
    • Domestic franchise stores: UP 8.4%   
    • International stores: UP 5.1% (excluding foreign currency impact)
