Brinker International Inc. (EAT) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2012-09-26.

Brinker International, Inc. has a market cap of $2.28 billion; its shares were traded at around $31.08 with a P/E ratio of 15.1 and P/S ratio of 0.8. The dividend yield of Brinker International, Inc. stocks is 2.6%. Brinker International, Inc. had an annual average earning growth of 2.9% over the past 10 years.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Franchise and other revenues decreased 3.9% to $19.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $20.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease is primarily due to lower gift card breakage income due to increased gift card usage, partially offset by an increase in royalty revenues related to the net addition of 9 franchised restaurants since the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Royalty revenues are recognized based on the sales generated by our franchisees and reported to us. Our franchisees generated approximately $399 million in sales.

Restaurant labor, as a percent of company sales, decreased to 33.0% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 as compared to 33.3% in the prior year driven by sales leverage on fixed costs related to higher revenue and improved labor productivity from the installation of new kitchen equipment, partially offset by increased overtime incurred to support these installations.

Restaurant expenses, as a percent of company sales, decreased to 24.6% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 as compared to 25.6% in the same period of the prior year primarily driven by lower repair and maintenance expense, credit card fees and utilities expense, and sales leverage on fixed costs.

The effective income tax rate increased to 31.1% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 29.8% for the same quarter of last year primarily due to increased earnings in the current quarter.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, net cash flow provided by operating activities was $32.9 million compared to $30.9 million in the prior year. The increase was driven by an increase in earnings in the current year, partially offset by changes in working capital during the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
