NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

MARCH 30, 2019

 

 

(1) BASIS OF PRESENTATION:

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial information for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 and March 31, 2018 are unaudited. Financial information as of September 29, 2018 has been derived from the audited financial statements of the Company, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial information for the periods indicated have been included. For further information regarding the Company's accounting policies, refer to the Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 29, 2018. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for a full year.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries and the accounts of the eight limited partnerships in which we act as general partner and have controlling interests. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. Non-controlling interest represents the limited partners’ proportionate share of the net assets and results of operations of the eight limited partnerships.

 

These condensed consolidated financial statements include estimates relating to performance based officers’ bonuses. The estimates are reviewed periodically and the effects of any revisions are reflected in the financial statements in the period they are determined to be necessary. Although these estimates are based on management’s knowledge of current events and actions it may take in the future, they may ultimately differ from actual results.

 

(2) EARNINGS PER SHARE:

 

We follow Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Section 260 - “Earnings per Share”. This section provides for the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share. The data on Page 2 shows the amounts used in computing earnings per share and the effects on income. As of March 30, 2019 and March 31, 2018, no stock options were outstanding.

 

(3) RECENTLY ADOPTED AND RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS:

 

Adopted

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” (ASU 2014-09), which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The new standard was effective for interim and annual periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The adoption of this new guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

(3) RECENTLY ADOPTED AND RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS:

(Continued)

 

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016-15 “Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments”, which addresses how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows under Topic 230, “Statement of Cash Flows”, and other Topics. The new standard was effective for interim and annual periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. The adoption of this new guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Issued

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which supersedes all existing guidance on accounting for leases in ASC Topic 840.  ASU 2016-02 is intended to provide enhanced transparency and comparability by requiring lessees to record right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities on the balance sheet.  ASU 2016-02 will continue to classify leases as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of income.  ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years, which will require us to adopt these provisions in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2020.  Early adoption is permitted.  ASU 2016-02 requires a modified retrospective approach for all leases existing at, or entered into after the date of initial adoption, with an option to elect to use certain transition relief.  We expect the adoption of the new guidance will have a material impact on our consolidated balance sheets due to recognition of the right-of-use asset and the lease liability related to our current operating leases. The process of evaluating the full impact of the new guidance of our consolidated financial statements and disclosures is ongoing and we expect to have an estimate of the impact by the end of the third quarter of our fiscal year 2019.

 

(4) INVESTMENT IN REAL PROPERTY; OPTION TO LEASE AGREEMENT:

 

Pompano Beach, Florida

 

During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we purchased from an unrelated third party the vacant real property (the “Property”), located at 2119 S.E. 9th Street, Pompano Beach, Florida for $1,300,000 cash at closing. The Property is adjacent to property owned by a third party unaffiliated with us and leased to another third party unaffiliated with us for use as a restaurant (the “Adjacent Property”). As a condition to closing on the Property, we executed an Option to Lease Agreement for the Adjacent Property, to lease the Adjacent Property for a 50 year term commencing either in November, 2019 or if the current tenant exercises a one time three year renewal option, November, 2022. We plan to renovate the building on the Adjacent Property for operation as a “Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill” restaurant and use the Property as parking. To fund the cash at closing, we used cash on hand. We plan to raise funds to renovate this new restaurant location using our limited partnership ownership model.

 

(5) EXECUTION OF LEASES FOR NEW LOCATIONS:

 

Sunrise, Florida (“Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill”)

 

On February 28, 2019, we entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Sunrise Lease Agreement”) with a non-affiliated third party to rent approximately 6,900 square feet of commercial space in Sunrise, Florida where, subject to certain conditions, we anticipate opening a new restaurant location. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we assigned the Sunrise Lease Agreement to a newly formed limited partnership in which we currently are (i) the sole general partner; and (ii) our wholly owned subsidiary is the sole limited partner. While there can be no assurances that we will be successful in doing so, we intend to sell limited partnership interests to third parties as well as affiliates of the Company in order to raise net proceeds, in an amount to be determined, which proceeds will be used to renovate this potential restaurant location. We anticipate that the new restaurant location’s ownership and operating structure will be substantially similar to that of our other restaurants owned by limited partnerships. Any amounts we advance to the limited partnership will be applied as a credit to limited partnership equity in the limited partnership we may acquire (which equity shall be purchased at the same price and upon the same terms as other equity investors). If we do not acquire equity in the limited partnership for at least $250,000, any excess amounts advanced by us will be reimbursed to us by the limited partnership without interest. Through May 14, 2019, we have advanced $63,000 to the limited partnership.

Index 

(6) INCOME TAXES:

 

We account for our income taxes using FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes”, which requires among other things, recognition of future tax benefits measured at enacted rates attributable to deductible temporary differences between financial statement and income tax basis of assets and liabilities and to tax net operating loss carryforwards and tax credits to the extent that realization of said tax benefits is more likely than not.

 

On December 22, 2017 the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) was signed into law, reducing the corporate income tax rate to 21%.  Our accounting for the impact of the Act is complete.  Consequently, we recorded a decrease of approximately $268,000 to our net deferred tax asset, with a corresponding adjustment to deferred income tax expense for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017.

 

(7) DEBT:

 

(a) Mortgage on Real Property

During the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we borrowed the sum of $250,000 from a related third party lender (the “$250,000 Loan”). The proceeds of the $250,000 Loan are being used as working capital. Our repayment obligations under the $250,000 Loan are secured by a first mortgage on our quadraplex located at 1420 N.E. 50th Court, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33334. The $250,000 Loan bears interest at the fixed rate of 4.00% per annum and is amortizable over an eight (8) year period, with our current monthly payment of principal and interest totaling $3,047. The entire principal balance and all accrued but unpaid interest are due on November 1, 2026.

(b) Financed Insurance Premiums

 

During the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019, we financed the premiums on the following three (3) property and general liability insurance policies, totaling approximately $1.65 million, which property and general liability insurance includes coverage for our franchises which are not included in our consolidated financial statements:

 

(i)       For the policy year beginning December 30, 2018, our general liability insurance, excluding limited partnerships, is a one (1) year policy with our insurance carriers, including automobile and excess liability coverage. The one (1) year general liability insurance premiums, including automobile and excess liability coverage, total, in the aggregate $620,000, of which $494,000 is financed through an unaffiliated third party lender (the “Third Party Lender”). The finance agreement obligates us to repay the amounts financed together with interest at the rate of 3.85% per annum, over 10 months, with monthly payments of principal and interest, each in the amount of $50,000. The finance agreement is secured by a first priority security interest in all insurance policies, all unearned premium, return premiums, dividend payments and loss payments thereof.

Index 

(ii)        For the policy year beginning December 30, 2018, our general liability insurance for our limited partnerships is a one (1) year policy with our insurance carriers, including excess liability coverage. The one (1) year general liability insurance premiums, including excess liability coverage, total, in the aggregate $521,000, of which $416,000 is financed through the Third Party Lender. The finance agreement obligates us to repay the amounts financed, together with interest at the rate of 3.85% per annum, over 10 months, with monthly payments of principal and interest, each in the amount of $42,000. The finance agreement is secured by a first priority security interest in all insurance policies, all unearned premium, return premiums, dividend payments and loss payments thereof.

 

(iii)       For the policy year beginning December 30, 2018, our property insurance is a one (1) year policy. The one (1) year property insurance premium is in the amount of $506,000, of which $385,000 is financed through the Third Party Lender. The finance agreement provides that we are obligated to repay the amounts financed, together with interest at the rate of 3.85% per annum, over 10 months, with monthly payments of principal and interest, each in the amount of approximately $39,000. The finance agreement is secured by a first priority security interest in all insurance policies, all unearned premium, return premiums, dividend payments and loss payments thereof.

 

As of March 30, 2019, the aggregate principal balance owed from the financing of our property and general liability insurance policies is $833,000.

 

 

(8) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:

 

Construction Contracts

 

a. 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida (Store #20)

 

On June 14, 2017, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated general contractor to renovate our restaurant located at 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida, (Store #20) for a total contract price of $880,000. The renovations include, but are not limited to the construction of a new kitchen and the expansion of the restaurant into our former package liquor store location. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we agreed to change orders which had the effect of increasing the total contract price for the renovations to $1,177,000, of which $933,000 has been paid. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid an additional $229,000 toward the total contract price, leaving a balance of $15,000.

 

During our fiscal year 2018, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated general contractor to renovate and add an outdoor patio area to the front of our restaurant located at 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida (Store #20) for a total contract price of $912,000. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we agreed to change orders which had the effect of decreasing the total contract price for the renovation to $880,000, of which we have paid $777,000. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid an additional $98,000 toward the total contract price, leaving a balance of $5,000.

 

b. 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19)

 

During our fiscal year 2018, we entered into two agreements with a third party unaffiliated general contractor for design and development services for a total contract price of $127,000 (the “$127,000 Contract”) and $174,000 (the “$174,000 Contract”). The $127,000 Contract provides for design and development services for the construction of a new building (the “New Building”) on a parcel of real property which we own which is adjacent to the real property where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida, (Store #19) operated until it was closed in October 2018 due to damages caused by a fire. The $174,000 Contract provides for design and development services for the renovation of the existing building which housed the combination package liquor store and restaurant until it was closed in October 2018 due to damages caused by a fire. If we complete the construction of the New Building and as a result of the fire, the rebuild of the existing building, (the “Rebuilt Building”), we plan to re-locate our package liquor store located at the property to the New Building and to operate the restaurant located at the property in the Rebuilt Building. During our fiscal year 2019, we agreed to change orders which had the effect of increasing the total contract price for the $127,000 Contract to $138,000, and during the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid the balance of the total contract price of the $127,000 Contract, in the amount of $25,000. During our fiscal year 2019, we also agreed to change orders which had the effect of increasing the total contract price for the $174,000 Contract to $187,000, and during the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid $46,000 as the final payment of the contract price of the $174,000 Contract, (of which a total of $157,000 was paid), which we cancelled during the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 due to the building being damaged by fire.

Index 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated general contractor for site work to connect the real property where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida, (Store #19) operated until it was closed in October 2018 due to damages caused by a fire to city sewer and for the construction of the new building on the adjacent parcel of real property for the operation of our package liquor store for $1,618,000.

 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we also entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated architect for design and development services for the re-build of our restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19) for a total contract price of $77,000, of which we paid $15,000.

 

c. 4 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, Florida (Store #31)

 

During the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated design group for design and development services for a contract price of $356,000 (the “$356,000 Contract”). The $356,000 Contract provided for design and development services for the construction of two (2) new buildings on the real property which we own where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 4 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, Florida, (Store #31) operates. Our plan for the real property was to (i) demolish the building which currently houses our combination package liquor store and restaurant, (ii) build two new buildings, one of which will house our package liquor store and the other of which will house our restaurant; and (iii) enter into a ground lease with an existing retail tenant for a parcel of land which will not be improved by the two buildings. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we learned that our planned development of Store #31 would cause the loss of too many parking spaces, so we abandoned our development plans and terminated the $356,000 Contract. We paid $130,000 on account of the $356,000 Contract and owe no further amounts under the same.

 

d. 14301 W. Sunrise Boulevard, Sunrise, Florida (Store #85)

 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we also entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated design group for design and development services of our new location at 14301 W. Sunrise Boulevard, Sunrise, Florida 33323 (Store #85) for a total contract price of $122,000, of which we paid $20,000.

Litigation

From time to time, we are a defendant in litigation arising in the ordinary course of our business, including claims resulting from “slip and fall” accidents, dram shop claims, claims under federal and state laws governing access to public accommodations, employment-related claims and claims from guests alleging illness, injury or other food quality, health or operational concerns. To date, none of this litigation, some of which is covered by insurance, has had a material effect on us.

(9) CASUALTY LOSS

 

During the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19) was damaged by a fire and was forced to close. Due to the damage caused by the fire, we determined that Store #19 should be demolished and rebuilt and as a result, the package liquor store and restaurant will be closed for our fiscal year 2019. We have insurance coverage of $1,975,000, in the aggregate, which our insurance carrier has agreed to pay. We sustained a loss of $1,373,000 on our building and business personal property, against which we received insurance proceeds of $1,200,000 resulting in a loss of $173,000. We had a gain of $775,000 on our business interruption coverage, which when netted against our loss of $173,000 on our building and business personal property produced a gain of $602,000. During the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we received an advance of $600,000 against our insurance recovery and during the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we received the balance of our insurance recovery, less only $132,000 as depreciation against our business personal property until such time as it is replaced.

 

(10) BUSINESS SEGMENTS:

 

We operate principally in two reportable segments – package stores and restaurants. The operation of package stores consists of retail liquor sales and related items. Information concerning the revenues and operating income for the thirteen weeks and twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019 and March 31, 2018, and identifiable assets for the two reportable segments in which we operate, are shown in the following table. Operating income is total revenue less cost of merchandise sold and operating expenses relative to each segment. In computing operating income, none of the following items have been included: interest expense, other non-operating income and expenses and income taxes. Identifiable assets by segment are those assets that are used in our operations in each segment. Corporate assets are principally cash and real property, improvements, furniture, equipment and vehicles used at our corporate headquarters. We do not have any operations outside of the United States and transactions between restaurants and package liquor stores are not material.

OVERVIEW

 

As of March 30, 2019, Flanigan’s Enterprises, Inc., a Florida corporation, together with its subsidiaries, (i) operates 26 units, consisting of restaurants, package liquor stores and combination restaurants/package liquor stores that we either own or have operational control over and partial ownership in; and (ii) franchises an additional five units, consisting of two restaurants (one of which we operate) and three combination restaurants/package liquor stores. The foregoing excludes an adult entertainment club which we owned but did not operate and which was permanently closed on September 20, 2018 when a Federal Court upheld recently enacted local legislation which prohibited the operation of the club as then operated. The table below provides information concerning the type (i.e. restaurant, package liquor store or combination restaurant/package liquor store) and ownership of the units (i.e. whether (i) we own 100% of the unit; (ii) the unit is owned by a limited partnership of which we are the sole general partner and/or have invested in; or (iii) the unit is franchised by us), as of March 30, 2019 and as compared to March 31, 2018 and September 29, 2018. With the exception of “The Whale’s Rib”, a restaurant we operate but do not own, all of the restaurants operate under our service mark “Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill” and all of the package liquor stores operate under our service mark “Big Daddy’s Liquors”.

Notes:

(1) During the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19) was damaged by a fire which caused it to be closed during the first and second quarters of our fiscal year 2019. Revenues and expenses from Store #19 for the first two (2) days of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, except payroll, are immaterial.

(2) During the fourth quarter of our fiscal year 2018, the adult entertainment club which we owned but did not operate was closed permanently when a Federal Court upheld recently enacted local legislation which prohibited the operation of the club as then operated.

(3) We operate a restaurant for one (1) franchisee. This unit is included in the table both as a franchised restaurant, as well as a restaurant operated by us.

 

Franchise Financial Arrangement: In exchange for our providing management and related services to our franchisees and granting them the right to use our service marks “Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill” and “Big Daddy’s Liquors”, our franchisees (four of which are franchised to members of the family of our Chairman of the Board, officers and/or directors), are required to (i) pay to us a royalty equal to 1% of gross package store sales and 3% of gross restaurant sales; and (ii) make advertising expenditures equal to between 1.5% to 3% of all gross sales based upon our actual advertising costs allocated between stores, pro-rata, based upon gross sales.

Index 

Limited Partnership Financial Arrangement: We manage and control the operations of all restaurants owned by limited partnerships, except the Fort Lauderdale, Florida restaurant which is managed and controlled by a related franchisee. Accordingly, the results of operations of all limited partnership owned restaurants, except the Fort Lauderdale, Florida restaurant are consolidated into our operations for accounting purposes. The results of operations of the Fort Lauderdale, Florida restaurant are accounted for by us utilizing the equity method of accounting. In general, until the investors’ cash investment in a limited partnership (including any cash invested by us and our affiliates) is returned in full, the limited partnership distributes to the investors annually out of available cash from the operation of the restaurant up to 25% of the cash invested in the limited partnership, with no management fee paid to us.

Revenues. Total revenue for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 increased $280,000 or 0.95% to $29,736,000 from $29,456,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018 due primarily to increased restaurant traffic and notwithstanding the loss of revenue from our combination restaurant/package liquor store located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19), which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, (the “Store #19 Closure”). Revenue generated from operations at our Store #19 was $1,346,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. We expect revenue to remain stable throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due to increased restaurant traffic, offset by the loss of revenue resulting from the Store #19 Closure. We currently anticipate that our Store #19 will be closed for at least the remainder of our fiscal year 2019.

 

Restaurant Food Sales. Restaurant revenue generated from the sale of food, including non-alcoholic beverages, at restaurants (food sales) totaled $18,219,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 as compared to $18,244,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in restaurant revenue from the sale of food at restaurants during the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 is primarily due to the loss of revenue resulting from the Store #19 Closure, offset by increased restaurant traffic. Restaurant revenue from the sale of food at our Store #19 was $892,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. Comparable weekly restaurant food sales (for restaurants open for all of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018, which consists of nine restaurants owned by us, (excluding Store #19 which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019) and eight restaurants owned by affiliated limited partnerships) was $1,401,000 and $1,335,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 and March 31, 2018, respectively, an increase of 4.94%. Comparable weekly restaurant food sales for Company owned restaurants only was $720,000 and $685,000 for the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 5.11%. Comparable weekly restaurant food sales for affiliated limited partnership owned restaurants only was $681,000 and $650,000 for the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 4.84%. We expect restaurant revenue generated from food sales, including non-alcoholic beverages, at restaurants to remain stable throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due to the loss of food sales resulting from the Store #19 Closure.

 

Restaurant Bar Sales. Restaurant revenue generated from the sale of alcoholic beverages at restaurants (bar sales) totaled $5,745,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 as compared to $5,641,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. The increase in restaurant revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages at restaurants during the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 is primarily due to increased restaurant traffic, offset by the loss of revenue resulting from the Store #19 Closure. Restaurant revenue from the bar sales at our Store #19 was $190,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. Comparable weekly restaurant bar sales (for restaurants open for all of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018, which consists of nine restaurants owned by us, (excluding Store #19 which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019), and eight restaurants owned by affiliated limited partnerships) was $442,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 and $423,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018, an increase of 4.49%. Comparable weekly restaurant bar sales for Company owned restaurants only was $205,000 and $195,000 for the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 5.13%. Comparable weekly restaurant bar sales for affiliated limited partnership owned restaurants only was $237,000 and $228,000 for the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 3.95%.

Package Store Sales. Revenue generated from sales of liquor and related items at package liquor stores totaled $5,092,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 as compared to $4,866,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018, an increase of $226,000. This increase was primarily due to increased package liquor store traffic, offset by the loss of revenue generated from sales of liquor and related items at Store #19, due to the Store #19 Closure. Revenue generated from sales of liquor and related items at our Store #19 was $264,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018.

Operating costs and expenses, (consisting of cost of merchandise sold, payroll and related costs, occupancy costs and selling, general and administrative expenses), for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 increased $902,000 or 3.35% to $27,846,000 from $26,944,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. The increase was primarily due to an expected general increase in food costs, offset by a reduction of operating costs and expenses at Store #19 due to the Store #19 Closure and actions taken by management to reduce and/or control costs. Operating costs and expenses at our Store #19 were $529,000 for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018. We anticipate that our operating costs and expenses will continue to increase through our fiscal year 2019 for the same reasons. Operating costs and expenses increased as a percentage of total revenue to approximately 93.64% in the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 from 92.36% in the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018.

Higher payroll and related costs for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019 were primarily due to higher restaurant sales, which require additional payroll and related costs for employees such as cooks, bartenders and servers, offset by a decrease in payroll and related costs of $657,000 at Store #19 due to the Store #19 Closure. Payroll and related costs as a percentage of total revenue was 30.49% in the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and 30.82% of total sales in the second quarter of our fiscal year 2018.

Income taxes decreased during the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019 due to a reduction of $268,000 to our deferred tax asset due to the corporate tax rate reduction, which reduction was a part of our current tax expense during the twenty six weeks ended March 31, 2018.

 

Net Income. Net income for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2019 decreased $378,000 or 13.31% to $2,463,000 from $2,841,000 for the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018. Net income for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2019 decreased when compared to the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018 primarily due to higher food costs and overall expenses and a net loss of $274,000 from Store #19 resulting from the Store #19 Closure, offset by the receipt in the first quarter of our 2019 fiscal year of a $602,000 insurance recovery, as a result of the Store #19 Closure and higher restaurant traffic. During the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018, the net income from Store #19 was $408,000. Net income for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2018 was also reduced by a reduction of $268,000 to our deferred tax asset. For the balance of our fiscal year 2019, our net income will be adversely affected by a loss of net income from Store #19 resulting from the Store #19 Closure. We anticipate that Store #19 will remain closed through at least the end of our fiscal year 2019 and we do not anticipate we will receive any additional insurance proceeds from the Store #19 Closure, other than $132,000 in depreciation insurance recovery which we have yet to receive.

 

Net Income Attributable to Stockholders. Net income attributable to stockholders for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2019 decreased $254,000 or 12.59% to $1,764,000 from $2,018,000 for the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018. Net income for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2019 decreased when compared to the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018 primarily due to higher food costs and overall expenses and a net loss of $274,000 from Store #19 resulting from the Store #19 Closure, offset by the receipt in the first quarter of our 2019 fiscal year of a $602,000 insurance recovery, as a result of the Store #19 Closure and higher restaurant traffic. During the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018, the net income from Store #19 was $408,000. Net income for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2018 was also reduced by a reduction of $268,000 to our deferred tax asset. As a percentage of revenue, net income attributable to stockholders for the twenty-six weeks ended March 30, 2019 is 3.06%, as compared to 3.49% for the twenty-six weeks ended March 31, 2018. For the balance of our fiscal year 2019, our net income attributable to stockholders will be adversely affected by a loss of net income from Store #19 resulting from the Store #19 Closure. We anticipate that Store #19 will remain closed through at least the end of our fiscal year 2019 and we do not anticipate we will receive any additional insurance proceeds from the Store #19 Closure, other than $132,000 in depreciation insurance recovery which we have yet to receive.

New Limited Partnership Restaurants

 

As new restaurants open, our income from operations will be adversely affected due to our obligation to fund pre-opening costs, including but not limited to pre-opening rent for the new locations. During the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2019, we had one new restaurant location in Sunrise, Florida in the development stage and have recognized pre-opening costs of $63,000.

 

Menu Price Increases and Trends

 

Effective September 3, 2017 we increased menu prices for our bar offerings to target an increase to our bar revenues of approximately 4.9% annually and effective September 16, 2017 we increased menu prices for our food offerings to target an increase to our food revenues of approximately 4.0% annually to offset higher food costs and higher overall expenses. Prior to these increases, we previously raised menu prices in the second quarter of our fiscal year 2016. During the next twelve months, if demand for our restaurant and bar offerings remain substantially similar to the demand during our fiscal year 2018, (excluding restaurant and bar sales from Store #19 which we expect will be closed for our entire fiscal year 2019) of which there can be no assurance, we expect that restaurant and bar sales in our restaurants as well as gross profit for food and bar operations (excluding restaurant and bar sales from Store #19 which we expect will be closed for our entire fiscal year 2019) should remain substantially the same. We anticipate that our package liquor store sales will continue to increase, (excluding package liquor store sales from Store #19, which we expect will be closed for our entire fiscal year 2019 due to the Store #19 Closure), while gross profit margin for package liquor store sales will, in all likelihood, decrease.

 

In addition to the rebuilding of Store #19, which was closed in October 2018 due to a fire, we have a new “Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill” restaurant in Sunrise, Florida in the development stage and also continue to search for new locations to open restaurants and thereby expand our business.

 

We are not actively searching for locations for the operation of new package liquor stores, but when our attempt to expand “The Whale’s Rib” restaurant concept in Miami, Florida was abandoned, we decided that the space we had targeted for the “The Whales Rib” would be ideal for the operation of a package liquor store and during the fourth quarter of our fiscal year 2018, we received governmental approval to operate a package liquor store. It is anticipated that this new package liquor store will be open for business during the fourth quarter of our fiscal year 2019.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We fund our operations through cash from operations. As of March 30, 2019, we had cash of approximately $13,473,000, an increase of $59,000 from our cash balance of $13,414,000 as of September 29, 2018. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, on March 28, 2019, we paid a dividend of $.28 per share. We believe that our current cash availability from our cash on hand, positive cash flow from operations and borrowed funds will be sufficient to fund our operations and planned capital expenditures for at least the next twelve months.

 

Cash Flows

 

The following table is a summary of our cash flows for the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019 and March 31, 2018.

During the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019, our Board of Directors declared and paid a cash dividend of 28 cents per share to shareholders of record on March 15, 2019. During the twenty six weeks ended March 31, 2018, our Board of Directors declared and paid a cash dividend of 25 cents per share to shareholders of record on March 16, 2018. Any future determination to pay cash dividends will be at our Board’s discretion and will depend upon our financial condition, operating results, capital requirements and such other factors as our Board deems relevant.

 

Capital Expenditures

 

In addition to using cash for our operating expenses, we use cash to fund the development and construction of new restaurants and to fund capitalized property improvements for our existing restaurants. We acquired property, plant and equipment and construction in progress of $4,199,000, (of which $1,300,000 was for the purchase of vacant real property in Pompano Beach, Florida, $584,000 was for the purchase of construction in process and $486,000 was from deposits recorded in other assets as of September 29, 2018), during the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019, which amount included $73,000 for renovations to one (1) existing limited partnership restaurant and $213,000 for renovations to three (3) Company owned restaurants. During the twenty six weeks ended March 31, 2018, we acquired property, plant and equipment and construction in progress of $1,848,000, (of which $848,000 was for the purchase of construction in process and $73,000 was from deposits recorded in other assets as of September 30, 2017), during the twenty six weeks ended March 31, 2018, which amount included $729,000 for the renovation of an existing restaurant and $196,000 for renovations to two (2) Company owned restaurants.

 

All of our owned units require periodic refurbishing in order to remain competitive. We anticipate the cost of this refurbishment in our fiscal year 2019 to be approximately $450,000, of which $286,000 has been spent through March 30, 2019.

Long Term Debt

 

As of March 30, 2019, we had long term debt of $14,574,000, as compared to $14,576,000 as of September 29, 2018. As of March 30, 2019, we are in compliance with the covenants of all loans with our lender.

 

As of March 30, 2019, the aggregate principal balance owed from the financing of our property and general liability insurance policies is $833,000.

 

Construction Contracts

 

a. 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida (Store #20)

 

On June 14, 2017, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated general contractor to renovate our restaurant located at 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida, (Store #20) for a total contract price of $880,000. The renovations include, but are not limited to the construction of a new kitchen and the expansion of the restaurant into our former package liquor store location. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we agreed to change orders which had the effect of increasing the total contract price for the renovations to $1,177,000, of which $933,000 has been paid. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid an additional $229,000 toward the total contract price, leaving a balance of $15,000.

 

During our fiscal year 2018, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated general contractor to renovate and add an outdoor patio area to the front of our restaurant located at 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida (Store #20) for a total contract price of $912,000. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we agreed to change orders which had the effect of decreasing the total contract price for the renovation to $880,000, of which we have paid $777,000. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid an additional $98,000 toward the total contract price, leaving a balance of $5,000.

 

b. 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19)

 

During our fiscal year 2018, we entered into two agreements with a third party unaffiliated general contractor for design and development services for a total contract price of $127,000 (the “$127,000 Contract”) and $174,000 (the “$174,000 Contract”). The $127,000 Contract provides for design and development services for the construction of a new building (the “New Building”) on a parcel of real property which we own which is adjacent to the real property where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida, (Store #19) operated until it was closed in October 2018 due to damages caused by a fire. The $174,000 Contract provides for design and development services for the renovation of the existing building which housed the combination package liquor store and restaurant until it was closed in October 2018 due to damages caused by a fire. If we complete the construction of the New Building and as a result of the fire, the rebuild of the existing building, (the “Rebuilt Building”), we plan to re-locate our package liquor store located at the property to the New Building and to operate the restaurant located at the property in the Rebuilt Building. During our fiscal year 2019, we agreed to change orders which had the effect of increasing the total contract price for the $127,000 Contract to $138,000, and during the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid the balance of the total contract price of the $127,000 Contract, in the amount of $25,000. During our fiscal year 2019, we also agreed to change orders which had the effect of increasing the total contract price for the $174,000 Contract to $187,000, and during the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we paid $46,000 as the final payment of the contract price of the $174,000 Contract, (of which a total of $157,000 was paid), which we cancelled during the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 due to the building being damaged by fire.

Index 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated general contractor for site work to connect the real property where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida, (Store #19) operated until it was closed in October 2018 due to damages caused by a fire to city sewer and for the construction of the new building on the adjacent parcel of real property for the operation of our package liquor store for $1,618,000.

 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we also entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated architect for design and development services for the re-build of our restaurant located at 2505 N. University Drive, Hollywood, Florida (Store #19) for a total contract price of $77,000, of which we paid $15,000.

 

c. 4 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, Florida (Store #31)

 

During the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated design group for design and development services for a contract price of $356,000 (the “$356,000 Contract”). The $356,000 Contract provided for design and development services for the construction of two (2) new buildings on the real property which we own where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 4 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, Florida, (Store #31) operates. Our plan for the real property was to (i) demolish the building which currently houses our combination package liquor store and restaurant, (ii) build two new buildings, one of which will house our package liquor store and the other of which will house our restaurant; and (iii) enter into a ground lease with an existing retail tenant for a parcel of land which will not be improved by the two buildings. During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we learned that our planned development of Store #31 would cause the loss of too many parking spaces, so we abandoned our development plans and terminated the $356,000 Contract. We paid $130,000 on account of the $356,000 Contract and owe no further amounts under the same.

 

d. 14301 W. Sunrise Boulevard, Sunrise, Florida (Store #85)

 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we also entered into an agreement with a third party unaffiliated design group for design and development services of our new location at 14301 W. Sunrise Boulevard, Sunrise, Florida 33323 (Store #85) for a total contract price of $122,000, of which we paid $20,000.

 

Purchase Commitments

 

In order to fix the cost and ensure adequate supply of baby back ribs for our restaurants during calendar year 2019, on November 15, 2018, we entered into a purchase agreement with our current rib supplier, whereby we agreed to purchase approximately $5,888,000 of baby back ribs during calendar year 2019 from this vendor at a fixed cost.

 

While we anticipate purchasing all of our rib supply from this vendor, we believe there are several other alternative vendors available, if needed.

 

Purchase of Limited Partnership Interest

 

During the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019, we did not purchase any limited partnership interests. During the twenty six weeks ended March 31, 2018, we purchased from one limited partner (who is not an officer, director or family member of officers or directors) a limited partnership interest of 0.21% in a limited partnership which owns a restaurant, for a purchase price of $1,600.

Working Capital

 

The table below summarizes the current assets, current liabilities, and working capital for our fiscal quarters ended March 30, 2019, March 31, 2018 and our fiscal year ended September 29, 2018.

 

Item  March 30, 2019   March 31, 2018   Sept. 29, 2018 
   (in Thousands) 
             
Current Assets  $19,746   $21,411   $19,025 
Current Liabilities   16,734    14,217    13,310 
Working Capital  $3,012   $7,194   $5,715 

 

Our working capital decreased during our fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2019 from our working capital for our fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2018 and our fiscal year ended September 29, 2018 due to the $1,300,000 we paid to close on our purchase of the vacant parcel of property located at 2119 S.E. 9th Street, Pompano Beach, Florida and the reclassification of the principal balance of an existing mortgage to short term.

 

While there can be no assurance due to, among other things, unanticipated expenses or unanticipated decline in revenues, or both, we believe that our cash on hand, positive cash flow from operations and funds available from our term loan will adequately fund operations, debt reductions and planned capital expenditures throughout our fiscal year 2019.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Inflation

 

The primary inflationary factors affecting our operations are food, beverage and labor costs. A large number of restaurant personnel are paid at rates based upon applicable minimum wage and increases in minimum wage directly affect labor costs. To date, inflation has not had a material impact on our operating results, but this circumstance may change in the future if food and fuel costs continue to rise.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

We do not ordinarily hold market risk sensitive instruments for trading purposes and as of March 30, 2019 held no equity securities.

 

Interest Rate Risk

 

As part of our ongoing operations, we are exposed to interest rate fluctuations on our borrowings. As more fully described in Note 9 “Fair Value Measurements of Financial Instruments” to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in “Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended September 29, 2018, we use interest rate swap agreements to manage these risks. These instruments are not used for speculative purposes but are used to modify variable rate obligations into fixed rate obligations.

 

At March 30, 2019, we had three variable rate debt instruments outstanding that are impacted by changes in interest rates. In November, 2011, we financed our purchase of the real property and two building shopping center in Miami, Florida, with a $4,500,000 mortgage loan (the “$4.5M Mortgage Loan”). In January, 2013, we refinanced the mortgage loan encumbering the property where our combination package liquor store and restaurant located at 4 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale, Florida, (Store #31) operates, which mortgage loan is held by an unaffiliated third party lender (the “$1.405M Loan”). In December, 2016, we closed on a secured revolving line of credit which entitled us to borrow, from time to time through December 28, 2017, up to $5,500,000 (the “Credit Line”), which on December 28, 2017 converted to a term loan (the “Term Loan”).

 

28 

Index 

As a means of managing our interest rate risk on these debt instruments, we entered into interest rate swap agreements with our unrelated third party lender to convert these variable rate debt obligations to fixed rates. We are currently party to the following three (3) interest rate swap agreements:

 

(i)        The first interest rate swap agreement entered into in November, 2011 by our wholly owned subsidiary, Flanigan’s Calusa Center, LLC, relates to the $4.5 million Mortgage Loan (the “$4.5M Mortgage Loan Swap”). The $4.5M Mortgage Loan Swap requires us to pay interest for an eight (8) year period at a fixed rate of 4.51% on an initial amortizing notional principal amount of $3,750,000, while receiving interest for the same period at LIBOR – 1 Month, plus 2.25%, on the same amortizing notional principal amount. We determined that at March 30, 2019, the interest rate swap agreement is an effective hedging agreement and the fair value was not material;

 

(ii)        The second interest rate swap agreement entered into in January, 2013 relates to the $1.405M Loan (the “$1.405M Term Loan Swap”). The $1.405M Term Loan Swap requires us to pay interest for a twenty (20) year period at a fixed rate of 4.35% on an initial amortizing notional principal amount of $1,405,000, while receiving interest for the same period at LIBOR – 1 Month, plus 2.25%, on the same amortizing notional principal amount. We determined that at March 30, 2019, the interest rate swap agreement is an effective hedging agreement and the fair value was not material; and

 

(iii)        The third interest rate swap agreement entered into in December, 2016 and became effective December 28, 2017, relates to the Term Loan (the “Term Loan Swap”). The Term Loan Swap requires us to pay interest for a five (5) year period at a fixed rate of 4.61% on an initial amortizing notional principal amount of $5,500,000, while receiving interest for the same period at LIBOR – 1 Month, plus 2.25%, on the same amortizing notional principal amount. We determined that at March 30, 2019, the interest rate swap agreement is an effective hedging agreement and the fair value was not material.

 

At March 30, 2019, our cash resources earn interest at variable rates. Accordingly, our return on these funds is affected by fluctuations in interest rates.

 

There is no assurance that interest rates will increase or decrease over our next fiscal year or that an increase will not have a material adverse effect on our operations.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

As of March 30, 2019, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934). Based on that evaluation, management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 30, 2019 due to the material weakness reported below.

Index 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019, based upon information contained in an email we received which we later became aware was fraudulent, we erroneously sent amounts via wire transfer to an incorrect recipient. We were able to retrieve the funds, however, and did not incur any financial loss. This occurred because of a lack of controls which allowed for the incorrect wire transfer information to be processed and a wire transfer to be sent to an incorrect recipient. We analyzed our internal procedures regarding wire transfers and adopted new procedures designed to mitigate our exposure to material weaknesses resulting from fraudulent wire transfer transactions, including, confirming all wire transfer recipient addresses via telephone and other means, requiring written and verbal approval of any changes to existing wire transfer information and intermittent prophylactic testing of wire transfers.

 

 

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

See “Litigation” on page 11 of this Report and Item 1 and Item 3 to Part 1 of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 29, 2018 for a discussion of other legal proceedings resolved in prior years.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

For a detailed discussion of the risks that affect our business, please refer to the section entitled "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 29, 2018 filed with the SEC on December 21, 2018.  In addition, the following risk factor should be considered in conjunction with those risk factors previously reported.

We are exposed to risks related to cybersecurity.

Although we maintain systems and processes that are designed to protect the security of our computer systems, software, networks and other technology, there is no assurance that all of our security measures will provide absolute security.  Any material incidents could cause us to experience financial losses that are either not insured against or not fully covered through any insurance maintained by us and increased expenses related to addressing or mitigating the risks associated with any such material incidents.  Cyber threats are rapidly evolving and are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Despite our efforts to ensure the integrity of our systems, as cyber threats evolve and become more difficult to detect and successfully defend against, one or more cyber threats might defeat the measures that we or our vendors take to anticipate, detect, avoid or mitigate such threats. Certain techniques used to obtain unauthorized access, introduce malicious software, disable or degrade service, or sabotage systems may be designed to remain dormant until a triggering event and we may be unable to anticipate these techniques or implement adequate preventative measures since techniques change frequently or are not recognized until launched, and because cyberattacks can originate from a wide variety of sources. If our information security systems or data are compromised in a material way, our ability to conduct our business may be impaired, we may incur financial losses and we may incur costs to remediate possible harm and/or to pay fines or take other action which could have a material adverse impact on our business.

Purchase of Company Common Stock

 

During the twenty six weeks ended March 30, 2019 and March 31, 2018, we did not purchase any shares of our common stock.
