Business Wire

GOLDEN, Colo. -- August 12, 2013

Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIM), a regional quick service
restaurant chain focused on fresh, high quality, all natural products today
announced its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30,
2013.

Key highlights of the Company’s third quarter report include:

  *Same store sales for Company owned restaurants increased 15.2% for the
    quarter, including 7.2% from the new breakfast day-part introduced in
    November, 2012, the twelfth consecutive quarter of increasing same store
    sales
  *Income from restaurant operations (see schedule below) increased 44% or
    $309,000 over last year
  *The restaurant level operating margin increased by 210 basis points from
    last year (see schedule below)
  *Net Income increased to $208,000 from $37,000 last year, including
    expenses and investment losses totaling $52,000 this year related to the
    start-up of the Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar subsidiary and franchise company
  *The Company has registered for a public offering of its common stock with
    a use of proceeds planned for the acceleration of remodeling older Good
    Times Burgers & Frozen Custard restaurants and the development of
    Company-owned and franchised Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants.

“This is the first full quarter this year that we’ve been able to realize the
full profit flow through on the significant same store sales increases we’ve
had the last several months, including our new breakfast day-part that is
performing above expectations,” said President and CEO Boyd Hoback. “It is
particularly important that most of our sales increases are coming from
increased traffic and not pricing or an increased average check as we continue
to compound our growth year over year.

“Our operating team has refined the labor model for the breakfast day-part, we
have significantly increased our chicken category sales with the introduction
of our hand-breaded, all natural chicken platform, the new television
marketing campaign is resonating with our customers and our cost of sales has
improved from our new distribution agreement, purchasing improvements and
further menu engineering. Our goal is to continue to drive top line sales
increases while optimizing the profitability of those incremental sales.

“We will experience some start up expenses and losses as we gear up for the
expansion of the Bad Daddy’s Franchise Development LLC franchise program and
the development of our first Colorado stores in our wholly owned subsidiary,
BD of Colorado LLC that are projected to open at the beginning of next year.
However, we expect our earnings from our core Good Times’ business to continue
to show substantial increases over the prior year in our fourth quarter and
for the fiscal year.”

    Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Restaurant-Level Operating Profit to Income
                        from Operations and Net Income
                    (In thousands, except percentage data)

The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important
measure for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the
restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level
operating efficiency and performance. The Company defines restaurant-level
operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating
costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure
includes restaurant level occupancy costs, which include fixed rents,
percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal
property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs, but
excludes depreciation. The measure excludes depreciation and amortization
expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant level assets,
because such expenses represent historical sunk costs which do not reflect
current cash outlay for the restaurants. The measure also excludes selling,
general and administrative costs, and therefore excludes occupancy costs
associated with selling, general and administrative functions, and pre-opening
costs. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent
a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment
costs are excluded, because, similar to depreciation and amortization, they
represent a non-cash charge for the Company’s investment in its restaurants
and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations.
Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should
not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from
operations or net income as indicators of financial performance.
Restaurant-level operating profit as presented may not be comparable to other
similarly titled measures of other companies. The table below sets forth
certain unaudited information for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and
June 30, 2012, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, except for the
components of restaurant operating costs, which are expressed as a percentage
of restaurant revenues.
