FLANIGAN’S ENTERPRISES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

DECEMBER 29, 2018

 

 

(1) BASIS OF PRESENTATION:

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial information for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017 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 3 shows the amounts used in computing earnings per share and the effects on income and the weighted average number of shares of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents. As of December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017, 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.

 

8 

Index 

(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, but we anticipate the initial evaluation of the impact will be completed by the second quarter of our fiscal year 2019.

 

(4) 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.

 

(5) DEBT:

 

(a) Mortgage on Real Property

 

During the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018, we borrowed the sum of $250,000 from a related third party lender (the “$250,000 Loan”). The proceeds of the $250,000 Loan will be used for working capital. Our repayment obligations under the $250,000 Loan are secured by a first mortgage on our quadraplax 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.

Index 

(b) Financed Insurance Premiums

 

During the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018, 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 $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.

 

(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 $51,000. 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 $42,000.

(6) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:

 

Construction Contracts

 

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 first 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 $1,140,000, of which $933,000 has been paid.

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 the first quarter of 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, of which $113,000 has been paid and increasing the total contract price for the $174,000 Contract to $187,000, of which $110,000 has been paid. Subsequent to the end of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we cancelled the $174,000 Contract due to the building being damaged by fire. The full amount to be expended for the Rebuilt Building has not yet been determined but we believe our loss caused by the fire will substantially be covered by insurance.

 

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 first 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.

 

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”), of which we paid $104,000. The $356,000 Contract provides 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 is 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. Subsequent to the end of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we learned that our planned development of Store #31 will cause the loss of too many parking spaces, so we abandoned our development plans and terminated the $356,000 Contract.

 

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.

(7)      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 will receive 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 produces a gain of $602,000. Prior to the end of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we received an advance of $600,000 against our insurance recovery and subsequent thereto, we received the balance of our insurance recovery, which is included in other receivables in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet, less only $140,000 as depreciation against our business personal property until such time as it is replaced.

 

(8)      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 ended December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017, 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.

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 quarter of 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.

 

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 owned 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. 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. Any available cash in excess of the 25% of the cash invested in the limited partnership distributed to the investors annually, is paid one-half (½) to us as a management fee, with the balance distributed to the investors. Once the investors in the limited partnership have received, in full, amounts equal to their cash invested, an annual management fee is payable to us equal to one-half (½) of cash available to the limited partnership, with the other one half (½) of available cash distributed to the investors (including us and our affiliates). As of December 29, 2018, limited partnerships owning seven (7) restaurants, (Surfside, Florida, Kendall, Florida, West Miami, Florida, Pinecrest, Florida, Wellington, Florida, Miami, Florida and Pembroke Pines locations), have returned all cash invested and we receive an annual management fee equal to one-half (½) of the cash available for distribution by the limited partnership. In addition to receipt of distributable amounts from the limited partnerships, we receive a fee equal to 3% of gross sales for use of the service mark “Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill”.

Comparison of Thirteen Weeks Ended December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017.

 

Revenues. Total revenue for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 decreased $499,000 or 1.76% to $27,894,000 from $28,393,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017 due primarily to 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 December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, offset by increased restaurant traffic. Revenue for our Store #19 was $1,352,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. We expect total revenue to decrease throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due to the loss of total revenue generated from our Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, partially offset by increased traffic.

 

 

Restaurant Food Sales. Restaurant revenue generated from the sale of food, including non-alcoholic beverages, at restaurants totaled $16,828,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 as compared to $17,272,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. The decrease in restaurant revenue from the sale of food at restaurants during the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 is primarily due to the loss of restaurant revenue from the sale of food at our Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, offset by increased restaurant traffic. Restaurant revenue from the sale of food at our Store #19 was $856,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Comparable weekly restaurant food sales (for restaurants open for all of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the first 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 December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018) and eight restaurants owned by affiliated limited partnerships) was $1,295,000 and $1,263,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017, respectively, an increase of 2.45%. Comparable weekly restaurant food sales for Company owned restaurants only was $642,000 and $634,000 for the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 1.26%. Comparable weekly restaurant food sales for affiliated limited partnership owned restaurants only was $653,000 and $629,000 for the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 3.82%. We expect restaurant revenue generated from the sale of food, including non-alcoholic beverages, at restaurants to decrease throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due to the loss of restaurant revenue generated from the sale of food, including non-alcoholic beverages, at restaurants at our Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, partially offset by increased traffic.

Restaurant Bar Sales. Restaurant revenue generated from the sale of alcoholic beverages at restaurants totaled $5,323,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 as compared to $5,484,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. The decrease in restaurant revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages at restaurants during the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017 is primarily due to the loss of restaurant revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages at our Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, offset by increased restaurant traffic. Restaurant revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages at our Store #19 was $184,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Comparable weekly restaurant bar sales (for restaurants open for all of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the first 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 December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018), and eight restaurants owned by affiliated limited partnerships) was $410,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and $408,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017, an increase of 0.49%. Comparable weekly restaurant bar sales for Company owned restaurants only was $183,000 and $186,000 for the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, a decrease of 1.61%. Comparable weekly restaurant bar sales for affiliated limited partnership owned restaurants only was $227,000 and $222,000 for the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018, respectively, an increase of 2.25%. We expect restaurant revenue generated from the sale of alcoholic beverages at restaurants to decrease throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due to the loss of restaurant revenue generated from the sale of alcoholic beverages, at restaurants at our Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, partially offset by increased traffic.

 

Package Store Sales. Revenue generated from sales of liquor and related items at package liquor stores totaled $5,135,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 as compared to $5,013,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017, an increase of $122,000. 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, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018. Revenue generated from sales of liquor and related items at our Store #19 was $312,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. The weekly average of same store package liquor store sales, which includes eight (8) Company owned package liquor stores, (excluding Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018), was $395,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 as compared to $362,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017, an increase of 9.12%. We expect package liquor store sales to decrease throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due to the loss of revenue generated from sales of liquor and related items at Store #19, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018, partially offset by increased traffic.

 

Operating Costs and Expenses. 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 December 29, 2018 increased $433,000 or 1.62% to $27,239,000 from $26,806,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. 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, which was closed for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018 and actions taken by management to reduce and/or control costs. Operating costs and expenses at our Store #19 were $559,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. 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 sales to approximately 97.65% in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 from 94.41% in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018.

Index 

Gross Profit. Gross profit is calculated by subtracting the cost of merchandise sold from sales.

 

Restaurant Food and Bar Sales. Gross profit for food and bar sales for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 decreased to $14,427,000 from $14,773,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Our gross profit margin for restaurant food and bar sales (calculated as gross profit reflected as a percentage of restaurant food and bar sales), was 65.13% for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and 64.92% for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. We anticipate that our gross profit for restaurant food and bar sales will decrease during our fiscal year 2019 due to higher food costs.

 

Package Store Sales. Gross profit for package store sales for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 decreased to $1,367,000 from $1,392,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Our gross profit margin, (calculated as gross profit reflected as a percentage of package liquor store sales), for package store sales was 26.62% for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and 27.77% for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. We anticipate that the gross profit margin for package store merchandise will decrease during our fiscal year 2019 due to a reduction in pricing of certain package store merchandise to be more competitive.

 

Payroll and Related Costs. Payroll and related costs for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $52,000 or 0.61% to $8,598,000 from $8,546,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Higher payroll and related costs for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 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 $300,000 at Store #19, which was closed for most of the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to a fire on October 2, 2018. Payroll and related costs as a percentage of total sales was 30.82% in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 and 30.10% of total sales in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018.

 

Occupancy Costs. Occupancy costs (consisting of rent, common area maintenance, repairs, real property taxes and amortization of leasehold purchases) for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $24,000 or 1.62% to $1,510,000 from $1,486,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. We anticipate that our occupancy costs will remain stable throughout our fiscal year 2019.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses (consisting of general corporate expenses, including but not limited to advertising, insurance, professional costs, clerical and administrative overhead) for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $469,000 or 9.07% to $5,639,000 from $5,170,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased as a percentage of total sales in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 to 20.21% as compared to 18.21% in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018. We anticipate that our selling, general and administrative expenses will increase throughout the balance of our fiscal year 2019 due primarily to increases across all categories.

 

Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $34,000 or 4.96% to $720,000 from $686,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. As a percentage of total revenue, depreciation expense was 2.58% of revenue for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and 2.42% of revenue in the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017.

Interest Expense, Net. Interest expense, net, for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $9,000 to $185,000 from $176,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. The increase in interest expense, net, for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 is due to our borrowing of the available balance on our Credit Line ($3.5 million for a total amount borrowed on the Credit Line of $5.5 million) at the end of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018.

 

Income Taxes. Income taxes for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 was $87,000 and $465,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Income taxes decreased during the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 due to lower taxable income and the corporate tax rate reduction, which was more heavily offset by the tip credit. Income taxes increased during the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017 due to a reduction of $268,000 to our deferred tax asset previously posted due to the corporate tax rate reduction, which reduction was a part of the current tax expense.

 

Net Income. Net income for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $42,000 or 4.39% to $998,000 from $956,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Net income for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased when compared to the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017 primarily due to an insurance recovery, net of casualty loss of $602,000 from damages as a result of the fire at our Store #19 in October 2018 and higher restaurant traffic, offset by higher food costs and overall expenses. Net income for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017 was also reduced by a reduction of $268,000 to our deferred tax asset. As a percentage of sales, net income for the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 is 3.58%, as compared to 3.37% in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018. For the balance of our fiscal year 2019, our net income will be adversely affected by a loss of net income from Store #19 which was closed in October 2018 due to damages from a fire and will remain closed through at least the end of our fiscal year 2019, with no further insurance recovery.

 

Net Income Attributable to Stockholders. Net income for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 increased $122,000 or 19.65% to $743,000 from $621,000 for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017. Net income attributable to stockholders for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2017 increased when compared to the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017 primarily due to an insurance recovery, net of casualty loss of $602,000 from damages as a result of the fire at our Store #19 in October 2018 and higher restaurant traffic, offset by higher food costs and overall expenses. Net income attributable to shareholders for the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 was also reduced by a reduction of $268,000 to our deferred tax asset. As a percentage of sales, net income for the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 is 2.66%, as compared to 2.19% in the first quarter of our fiscal year 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 which was closed in October 2018 due to damages from a fire and will remain closed through at least the end of our fiscal year 2019, with no further insurance recovery.

 

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 December 29, 2018, other than the rebuilding of Store #19 which was closed in October 2018 due to a fire, we did not have a new restaurant location in the development stage and did not recognize any pre-opening costs.

 

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 our Store #19 which we expect will be closed for our entire fiscal year 2019 due to the fire on October 2, 2018), of which there can be no assurance, we expect that restaurant and bar sales, as well as gross profit for food and bar operations should remain substantially the same. We anticipate that our package liquor store sales will continue to increase, (excluding package liquor store sales from our Store #19, which we expect will be closed for our entire fiscal year 2019 due to the fire on October 2, 2018), while gross profit margin for package liquor store sales will decrease.

Index 

Other than the rebuilding of Store #19, which was closed in October 2018 due to a fire, we do not have a new “Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill” restaurant in the development stage, but continue to search for new locations to open restaurants and thereby expand our business. As of the end of our fiscal year 2017 we abandoned our attempt to expand “The Whale’s Rib” restaurant concept that we manage in Deerfield Beach, Florida through the opening of a new restaurant in Miami, Florida due to our inability to get all necessary governmental approvals. As a result, as of the end of our fiscal year 2017, we wrote off approximately $54,000 in expenses incurred applying for governmental approvals to expand “The Whale’s Rib” restaurant concept in Miami, Florida.

 

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 the new package liquor store will be open for business during the third quarter of our fiscal year 2019.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We fund our operations through cash from operations. As of December 29, 2018, we had cash of approximately $14,500,000, an increase of $1,086,000 from our cash balance of $13,414,000 as of September 29, 2018. 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 first thirteen weeks of fiscal years 2019 and 2018.

 

   ---------Thirteen Weeks Ended-------- 
   December 29, 2018   December 30, 2017 
   (in Thousands) 
         
Net cash provided by operating activities  $2,835   $3,723 
Net cash used in investing activities   (910)   (966)
Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities   (839)   2,780 
           
Net Increase in Cash and Cash Equivalents   1,086    5,537 
           
Cash and Cash Equivalents, Beginning   13,414    9,885 
           
Cash and Cash Equivalents, Ending  $14,500   $15,422 

 

We did not declare or pay a cash dividend on our capital stock in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019 or the first quarter of our fiscal year 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.

Index 

Capital Expenditures

 

In addition to using cash for our operating expenses, we use cash generated from operations and borrowings to fund the development and construction of new restaurants and to fund capitalized property improvements for our existing restaurants. We acquired property and equipment of $1,427,000, (including $231,000 of deposits recorded in other assets as of September 29, 2018), during the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018, including $100,000 for renovations to three (3) Company owned restaurants. We acquired property and equipment of $960,000, (including $46,000 of deposits recorded in other assets as of September 30, 2017), during the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017, including $102,000 for renovations to one (1) Company owned restaurant.

 

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, $100,000 of which has been spent through December 29, 2018.

 

Long Term Debt

 

As of December 29, 2018, we had long term debt of $15,220,000, as compared to $16,617,000 as of December 30, 2017, and $14,576,000 as of September 29, 2018. Our long term debt increased as of December 29, 2018 as compared to September 29, 2018 due to the $1,041,000 for financed insurance premiums and a term loan of $250,000 from a related party, less any payments made on account thereof. As of December 29, 2018, we are in compliance with the covenants of all loans with our lender.

 

Construction Contracts

 

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 first 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 $1,140,000, of which $933,000 has been paid.

 

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 its closing 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 the first quarter of 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, of which $113,000 has been paid and increasing the total contract price for the $174,000 Contract to $187,000, of which $110,000 has been paid. Subsequent to the end of our first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we cancelled the $174,000 Contract due to the building being damaged by fire. The full amount to be expended for the Rebuilt Building has not yet been determined but we believe our loss caused by the fire will substantially be covered by insurance.

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 first 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.

 

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”), of which we paid $104,000. The $356,000 Contract provides 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 is 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. Subsequent to the end of the first quarter of our fiscal year 2019, we learned that our planned development of Store #31 will cause the loss of too many parking spaces, so we abandoned our development plans and terminated the $356,000 Contract.

 

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 thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018, we did not purchase any limited partnership interests. During the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2017, 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 December 29, 2018, December 30, 2017 and our fiscal year ended September 29, 2018.

 

Item  Dec. 29, 2018   Dec. 30, 2017   Sept. 29, 2018 
   (in Thousands) 
             
Current Assets  $22,595   $21,662   $19,025 
Current Liabilities   15,745    14,955    13,310 
Working Capital  $6,850   $6,707   $5,715 

 

Our working capital increased during our fiscal quarter ended December 29, 2018 from our working capital for our fiscal quarter ended December 30, 2017 and our fiscal year ended September 29, 2018 due to the insurance recovery of $1,975,000 we received from the fire at our Store #19 on October 2, 2018, offset by the $611,000 we paid towards the renovation of our restaurant located at 13205 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami, Florida (Store #20R).

 

21 

Index 

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 borrowed on our term loan will adequately fund operations, debt reductions and planned capital expenditures throughout our fiscal year 2019.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does 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 December 29, 2018 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 December 29, 2018, 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”).

 

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 December 29, 2018, the interest rate swap agreement is an effective hedging agreement and the fair value was not material;

 

22 

Index 

(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 December 29, 2018, 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 December 29, 2018, the interest rate swap agreement is an effective hedging agreement and the fair value was not material

 

At December 29, 2018, 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 December 29, 2018, 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 effective as of December 29, 2018.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the period covered by this report, we have not made any change to our internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

23 

Index 

Subsequent to the end of the first 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. We believe 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 which we determined to be a material weakness. We continue to analyze our internal procedures regarding wire transfers and have recently adopted new procedures designed to mitigate our exposure to 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 cyber attacks 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.

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

 

Purchase of Company Common Stock

 

During the thirteen weeks ended December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017, we did not purchase any shares of our common stock. As of December 29, 2018, we still have authority to purchase 65,414 shares of our common stock under the discretionary plan approved by the Board of Directors at its meeting on May 17, 2007.
