NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Jamba, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Jamba Juice Company (the “Company”) owns and franchises Jamba Juice stores through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Jamba Juice Company. Jamba Juice Company is a leading restaurant retailer of better-for-you specialty beverage and food offerings which include great tasting whole fruit smoothies, fresh-squeezed juice blends, teas, hot oatmeal, breakfast wraps, sandwiches and mini-wraps, California Flatbreads™, frozen yogurt and a variety of baked goods and snacks. Jamba, Inc. was incorporated in January 2005 and went public through an initial public offering later that year. As of July 3, 2012, there were 783 store locations globally. There were 305 Company owned and operated stores (“Company Stores”) and 448 franchise operated stores (“Franchise Stores”) in the United States, and 30 International stores. Jamba–branded consumer products (“CPG”) were also available through select retailers and Jamba Juice store locations in the United States.

 

Fiscal Quarter Change—Effective January 4, 2012, the Company changed its fiscal quarters to four 13 week periods. The Company’s fiscal year end continues to be the Tuesday closest to December 31. Since the fiscal quarter change was made after the end of fiscal 2011, the Company will continue to report the prior year financial information based on its prior year fiscal calendar. The Company has not prepared financial information for the 13 week period ended June 28, 2011. The Company’s financial results for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 are compared to its results for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The comparison of these two quarters is primarily affected by the difference of one week between the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and the second quarter of 2011. Operating results for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending January 1, 2013.

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Information—The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of July 3, 2012, the condensed consolidated statements of operations for each of the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and for each of the 12 and 28 week periods ended July 12, 2011, respectively and the condensed statements of stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the 26 and 28 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and July 12, 2011 have been prepared by the Company, without audit, and have been prepared on the same basis as the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary to present fairly the financial position as of July 3, 2012, and the results of operations and cash flows for the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and the 12 week and 28 week periods ended July 12, 2011. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 3, 2012 has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements. Operating results for the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending January 1, 2013. The Company reports its results of operations on a 52-week or 53-week fiscal year, which is comprised of eight 4-week periods and four 5-week periods or eight 4-week periods, three 5-week periods and one 6-week period. The first, second and third fiscal quarters each are 13 weeks, and the fourth quarter is 13 or 14 weeks. There were 26 weeks in the first half of fiscal 2012 and 28 weeks in the first half of fiscal 2011.

 

Certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been omitted from these interim financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, these interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements and notes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 3, 2012 (“2011 Annual Report”).

 

Advertising Fund— The Company participates with its franchisees in an advertising fund established in fiscal 2010, to collect and administer funds contributed for use in advertising and promotional programs designed to increase sales and enhance the reputation of the Company and its franchise owners. Contributions to the advertising fund are required for company owned and traditional franchise stores and are generally based on a percent of store sales. The Company has control of the advertising fund. The fund is consolidated and the Company reports all assets and liabilities of the fund that it consolidates.

 

The advertising fund assets, consisting primarily of accounts receivable from franchisees, can only be used for selected purposes and are considered restricted. The advertising fund liabilities represent the corresponding obligation arising from the receipts of the marketing program. In accordance with ASC Topic 952-605-25, the receipts from the franchisees are recorded as a liability against which specified advertising costs are charged. The Company does not reflect franchisee contributions to the fund in its Consolidated Statements of Operations or Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

 

Advertising fund assets of $2.4 million and $1.5 million were recorded in accounts receivable on the consolidated balance sheet as of July 3, 2012 and January 3, 2012, respectively. Advertising fund liabilities of $0.4 million and $0.5 million were recorded in accounts payable on the consolidated balance sheet as July 3, 2012 and January 3, 2012, respectively.

Comprehensive Income—Comprehensive income is defined as the change in equity during a period from transactions and other events, excluding changes resulting from investments from owners and distributions to owners. Comprehensive income (loss) equals net income (loss) for all periods presented. No separate statement of comprehensive income is presented.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share—Earning (loss) per share is computed in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed based on the weighted-average of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares and potentially dilutive securities, which includes outstanding warrants and outstanding options and restricted stock awards granted under the Company’s stock option plans.

 

Anti-dilutive shares have been excluded from the calculation of diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. Anti-dilutive shares of 6.7 million and 2.3 million have been excluded from the calculation of diluted weighted-average shares outstanding in the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 and in the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011, respectively. Anti-dilutive shares of 23.5 million and 24.6 million have been excluded from the calculation of diluted weighted-average shares outstanding in the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and in the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, respectively.

 

For purposes of determining the net income available (loss attributable) to common stockholders used in the computation of earnings (loss) per share, the amount of the income (loss) is increased (decreased) by the preferred stock dividends and deemed dividends. The deemed dividend represents the accretion of the issuance costs and beneficial conversion feature of the Company’s preferred stock. For the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, the convertible preferred shares are dilutive, therefore the dividends and deemed dividends related to the preferred stock have been added back to the net income available to common stockholders and the number of preferred shares have been included in the diluted earnings per share calculation. For the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, the convertible preferred shares are anti-dilutive and the dividends and deemed dividends related to the preferred stock have not been added back to the net income available to common stockholders. Also the number of preferred shares has not been included in the diluted earnings per share calculation.

 

The number of incremental shares from the assumed exercise of restricted stock awards, warrants and options was calculated by applying the treasury stock method. The “if converted” method was used for the conversion of preferred stock. A reconciliation of the numerators and denominators of the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations is as follows (in thousands, except shares):

Fair value Measurement—The Company measures its cash equivalents at fair value. There is no difference between the fair value and cost of the Company’s cash equivalents. Fair value is an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or a liability. A three-tier fair value hierarchy is established as a basis for considering such assumptions and for inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable.

 

8
 

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions

that market participants would use in pricing.

 

Impairment of long-lived assets—The Company evaluates long-lived assets for impairment when facts and circumstances indicate that the carrying values of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. The impairment evaluation is generally performed at the individual store asset group level. The Company first compares the carrying value of the asset to the asset’s estimated future undiscounted cash flows. If the estimated future cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, the Company measures an impairment loss based on the asset’s estimated fair value. The fair value of a store’s assets is estimated using a discounted cash flow model based on internal projections and taking into consideration the view of a market participant. The estimate of cash flows is based on, among other things, certain assumptions about expected future operating performance. Factors considered during the impairment evaluation include factors related to actual operating cash flows, the period of time since a store has been opened or remodeled, refranchising expectations and the maturity of the relevant market.

 

Restricted Cash—The Company held no restricted cash at July 3, 2012. The Company held $1.4 million in restricted cash at January 3, 2012. Restricted cash represented cash held in money market accounts or certificates of deposits to collateralize the Company’s letters of credit.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

There has been no development to recently issued accounting pronouncements, including the expected dates of adoption and estimated effects on the Company’s consolidated financial statements from that disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

2. ACQUISITION

 

On January 27, 2012, the Company completed its acquisition of certain assets of Talbott Teas, LLC (“Talbott”), a Chicago based boutique, premium tea company. The acquisition of Talbott is consistent with the Company’s strategy for growth through lifestyle specialty brands that fit well with the Jamba brands and its positioning as a leading health and wellness company. The pro forma effect of the acquisition on the Company’s results of operations is not significant. The revenue and earnings of Talbott, included in the Company’s results since the January 27, 2012 acquisition, and acquisition related expenses included in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations are not significant.

 

This purchase was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting and the purchase price comprises an upfront cash payment plus contingency payments based on the future performance (the “earn-out arrangement”) of the assets acquired. The purchase price was determined to be the aggregate of the upfront payment and the fair value of the payments subject to the earn-out arrangement, and was allocated to the assets purchased based upon their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. Identifiable intangible assets acquired include a trade name and customer relationships totaling $0.4 million; and are included in trademarks and other intangible assets, net on the balance sheet. The excess purchase price over the net tangible and intangible assets acquired of $1.3 million was recorded as goodwill, which is expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The purchase price cash consideration paid by the Company at closing was $0.4 million and the fair value of the earn-out arrangement was recorded as a liability, at $1.4 million, as of January 27, 2012. There is no change in the fair value of the earn-out liability as of July 3, 2012.

 

3. REDEEMABLE PREFERRED STOCK

 

During the second quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company issued (i) 170,000 shares of its Series B-1 Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001, (the “Series B-1 Preferred”) to affiliates of Mistral Equity Partners at a price of $115 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $19.6 million, and (ii) 134,348 shares of its Series B-2 Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001, (the “Series B-2 Preferred”) to CanBa Investments, LLC at a price of $115 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $15.4 million. The issuance of shares of the Series B-1 and B-2 Preferred Stock (together the “Series B Preferred Stock” or “Preferred Stock”) for $35 million, less approximately $3.1 million in total transaction costs, which includes $2.2 million in transaction fees and $885,000 paid to investors, was completed through a private placement to the purchasers as accredited investors and pursuant to the exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The shares of Preferred Stock and the shares of the Company’s Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock include legends restricting transfer other than pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act or in accordance with an exemption from registration. The holders of the Series B Preferred Stock have the right to require the Company to redeem all or a portion of the shares of the Preferred Stock on or after seven years from the date of issuance of the Preferred Stock.

 

The shares of Preferred Stock are convertible at the election of the holders, at any time, into shares of Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $1.15 per share. The conversion price for the Preferred Stock is subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments for stock splits, dividends or certain other equity restructurings. After a two year period from the original date of issuance, the Company will have the right to require that the shares of Preferred Stock be converted into shares of Common Stock if (i) the Common Stock trading volume averages 150,000 shares per trading day over a 30 trading day period and (ii) the daily volume weighted average price per share of the Common Stock exceeds the product of 2.5 times the then-applicable conversion price for any 20 of the preceding 30 trading days at any time these conditions continue to be satisfied and for a period of 10 trading days thereafter. Upon exercise of this right, the Preferred Stock will be converted at the then-applicable conversion rate and the Company will be obligated to pay any then-existing dividend arrearages in cash. The Shares of Preferred Stock are entitled to an 8% dividend, payable quarterly in cash.

During the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012, there were no conversions of outstanding Series B Preferred Stock. During the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012, the Company paid cash dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock totaling $0.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively. Accretion related to the Series B Preferred Stock for the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 was $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively.

 

During the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011, holders converted 4,900 shares of outstanding Series B-1 Preferred Stock and 2,000 shares of outstanding Series B-2 Preferred Stock to an aggregate of 690,000 shares of common stock at the initial conversion price of $1.15 per share. During the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, holders converted 18,400 shares of outstanding Series B-1 Preferred Stock and 5,696 shares of outstanding Series B-2 Preferred Stock to an aggregate of 2,409,600 shares of common stock at the initial conversion price of $1.15 per share. During the 12 and 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, the Company paid cash dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock totaling $0.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively. Accretion related to the Series B Preferred Stock for the 12 and 28 week periods ended July 12, 2011 was $0.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively.

 

4. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company maintains three share-based compensation plans (collectively, the “Plans”). The Company’s Amended and Restated 2006 Employee, Director and Consultant Stock Plan, as amended (the “2006 Plan”) was approved by the Company’s stockholders on November 28, 2006, and provides for the granting of up to eight million shares of common stock in the form of nonqualified and incentive stock options, stock grants or other share-based awards to employees, nonemployee directors and consultants. The amendment and restatement to the 2006 Plan was approved by stockholders on May 20, 2010. In connection with the merger of Jamba, Inc. with Jamba Juice Company on November 28, 2006, the Company assumed the outstanding options under the Jamba Juice Company 1994 Stock Incentive Plan (the “1994 Plan”) and the Jamba Juice Company 2001 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2001 Plan”), both of which provided for the granting of nonqualified and incentive stock options to employees, nonemployee directors and consultants. No additional grants are available under the 2001 Plan and the 1994 Plan. As of July 3, 2012, there remained 1,942,350 shares available for grant under the Company’s 2006 Plan. In December 2008, the Company also granted an option covering an aggregate of 1,500,000 shares of common stock under an inducement grant made outside of the Company’s existing equity plans. A summary of stock option activity under the Plans as of July 3, 2012, and changes during the 26 week period then ended is presented below:

 

             
  

Number of
Options

 
  

Weighted-
Average Exercise
Price

 
  

Aggregate
Intrinsic Value

 
 
   (in thousands)   (per share)   (dollars in thousands) 
Options outstanding at January 3, 2012   6,178   $2.25      
Options granted   162    2.14      
Options exercised   (5)   1.38      
Options cancelled   (42)   2.80     
                
Options outstanding at July 3, 2012   6,293   $2.24   $3,921 
               
Options vested or expected to vest at July 3, 2012   5,745   $2.28   $3,752 
               
Options exercisable at July 3, 2012   3,728   $2.65   $2,655 

 

The fair value of options granted was estimated at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Option valuation models, including Black-Scholes, require the input of highly subjective assumptions, and changes in the assumptions used can materially affect the grant date fair value of an award. The risk-free rate of interest is based on the zero coupon U.S. Treasury rates appropriate for the expected term of the award. For expected life, the Company applies the guidance provided by the SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 110. Expected dividends are zero based on a history of not paying cash dividends on the Company’s common stock and as the Company does not intend to pay dividends in the future. Expected volatility is based on historic daily stock price observations of the Company’s common stock since its inception. As required by authoritative guidance, the Company makes assumptions as to the expected forfeitures in determining share–based compensation expense.

 

10
 

 

Share-based compensation expense, which is included in general and administrative expense, was $0.4 million and $0.3 million for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 and for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011, respectively. Share-based compensation expense was $0.8 million and $0.6 million for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, respectively. At July 3, 2012, non-vested share-based compensation for stock options and restricted stock awards, net of forfeitures totaled $1.2 million. This expense will be recognized over the remaining weighted average vesting period of four years. There was no income tax benefit related to share-based compensation expense during the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and for the 12 and 28 week periods ended July 12, 2011.

 

The following are the weighted-average assumptions used to value option grants for the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and for the 12 and 28 week periods ended July 12, 2011:

 

                 
   13 Week Period Ended   12 Week Period Ended   26 Week Period Ended   28 Week Period Ended 
  

July 3, 2012

Weighted-average risk-free interest rate   0.79%   1.79%   0.91%   1.79%
Expected life of options (years)   6.25    6.25    6.25    6.25 
Expected stock volatility   68.8%   63.9%   69.2%   63.9%
Expected dividend yield   0%   0%   0%   0%

  

The estimated fair value per share of stock options granted during the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 and the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011, was $1.26 and $1.38, respectively. The estimated fair value per share of stock options granted during the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, was $1.34 and $1.38, respectively.

  

5. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

 

The following table presents the Company’s assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of July 3, 2012 and January 3, 2012 by level within the fair value hierarchy (in thousands):

The following table presents the Company’s assets that were accounted for at fair value on a non-recurring basis and remaining on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of July 3, 2012 and January 3, 2012. Total losses include losses recognized from all non-recurring fair value measurements for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011 (in thousands):

(1)Included in property, fixtures and equipment, net on the consolidated balance sheet.
(2)Included in trademark and other intangible assets, net on the consolidated balance sheet.

 

The Company classified the fair value of long-lived assets as level 3 because the value is based on unobservable inputs. The significant inputs to the fair value measurement of the long-lived assets are projected future operating results at the store level and the discount rates applied to calculate the present value of the these assets. The fair value of the contingent consideration is classified as level 3 because it is based on unobservable inputs. Significant inputs and assumptions are management’s estimate of operating profits from the related business and the discount rate used to calculate the present value of the liability. Significant changes in any Level 3 input or assumption would result in increases or decreases to the fair value measurements for the long-lived assets and the contingent consideration.

 

11
 

 

For assets that are measured using quoted prices in active markets, fair value is the published market price per unit multiplied by the number of units held without consideration of transaction costs. The Company had cash invested in money market funds and active exchange funds of $0.0 million and $1.4 million as of July 3, 2012 and January 3, 2012, respectively.

 

6. CREDIT AGREEMENT

 

On February 14, 2012, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “Lender”) whereby the Lender provided the Company with a six million dollar revolving line of credit. The outstanding balance under the credit facility bears interest at a LIBOR Market Index Rate based upon the rate for one month U.S. dollar deposits, plus 3.75% per annum. Under the terms of the Credit Agreement, the Company is required to maintain minimum levels of trailing annual consolidated EBITDA and liquidity and is subject to limits on annual capital expenditures. The Credit Agreement terminates January 31, 2013 or may be terminated earlier by the Company or by the Lender. The credit facility is subject to customary affirmative and negative covenants for credit facilities of this type, including limitations on the Company with respect to liens, indebtedness, guaranties, investments, distributions, mergers and acquisitions and dispositions of assets. The credit facility is evidenced by a revolving note made by the Company in favor of the Lender, is guaranteed by the Company and is secured by substantially all of its assets including the assets of its subsidiaries and a pledge of stock of its subsidiaries. In addition, the credit agreement replaced the restricted cash requirements for the Company in prior periods, as the line of credit also collateralizes the Company’s outstanding letters of credit of $1.4 million at July 3, 2012. During the period ended and as of July 3, 2012, there were no borrowings under the credit agreement.

 

7. IMPAIRMENT OF LONG LIVED ASSETS AND STORE LEASE TERMINATION AND CLOSURE COSTS

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

The Company reviews its entire portfolio on a regular basis. The review includes an analysis of each store’s past and present operating performance combined with projected future results. Impairment charges include the write-down of long-lived assets at stores that were assessed for impairment because of management’s intention to close the store or because of changes in circumstances that indicate the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. The Company recorded impairment charges of $0.2 million and $0.3 million for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 and for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011, respectively. Impairment charges of $0.6 million and $0.9 million were recorded for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, respectively.

 

Store lease termination and closure costs

 

Lease termination costs consist primarily of the costs of future obligations related to closed store locations. Discounted liabilities for future lease costs and the fair value of related subleases of closed locations are recorded when the stores are closed. All other costs related to closed units are expensed as incurred. In assessing the discounted liabilities for future costs of obligations related to closed stores, the Company makes assumptions regarding amounts of future subleases. If these assumptions or their related estimates change in the future, the Company may be required to record additional exit costs or reduce exit costs previously recorded. Exit costs recorded for each of the periods presented include the effect of such changes in estimates. Lease obligations are payable through 2022, less sublease amounts. The charges are noted below (in thousands):

8. INCOME TAXES

 

At the end of each interim period, the Company calculates an estimated annual effective tax rate based on the Company’s best estimate of the tax expense (benefit) that will be provided for the full year. The year-to-date income tax expense (benefit) is a result of applying the estimated annual effective tax rate to the year-to-date actual pre-tax income (loss). The interim period tax expense (benefit) is the difference between the year-to-date amount and the amounts reported for previous interim periods and then adjusted for discrete tax items, if any.

 

A valuation allowance is recognized if, based on the weight of available evidence, it is more-likely-than-not that some portion, or all, of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. After consideration of all the evidence, both positive and negative, management has concluded that it is not more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized and a full valuation allowance has been maintained against the Company’s net deferred tax assets.

 

The Company’s effective tax rate for the 13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 were 8.9% and 6.5%, respectively. The effective tax rates were affected by pretax income or loss, a change in the valuation allowance related to deductible temporary differences originating during the current year, the alternative minimum taxes and foreign withholding taxes.

 

As of July 3, 2012, there have been no material changes to the Company’s uncertain tax positions disclosure as provided in Note 12 in the Notes to the Financial Statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 3, 2012.

 

9. OTHER OPERATING, NET

 

Other operating, net includes gains or losses recognized in connection with the refranchise of certain Company Stores. During the first fiscal quarter of 2011, the Company completed its refranchising initiative with the sale of 42 stores in the Chicago/Minnesota and Lake Tahoe markets. During the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, the Company recognized a net loss on sale of fixed assets of refranchised stores of $0.3 million. For the 13 and 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, there was no loss on sale of fixed assets due to refranchising as the initiative ended in April 2011.

 

10. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

The Company is a defendant in litigation arising in the normal course of business. Although there can be no assurance as to the ultimate disposition of these matters, it is the opinion of the Company’s management, based upon the information available at this time, that the expected outcome of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the results of operations, liquidity or financial condition of the Company.

Change in Fiscal Quarter

 

Effective for fiscal 2012, the Company changed the end of its fiscal quarters. Each quarter has 13 weeks, resulting in a 12 period fiscal year. Prior to fiscal 2012, the first quarter had 16 weeks and each of the three subsequent quarters had 12 weeks. The Company’s year-end continues to be the Tuesday closest to December 31.

 

The prior year comparative financial and other information reported in the financial statements herein continue to be presented based on our prior year fiscal quarter end calendar. Our results for the second quarter of fiscal 2012, which was the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, are compared to our results for the second quarter of fiscal 2011, which was the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The comparison of these two quarters is primarily affected by the difference of one week between the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and the second quarter of 2011. There were 26 weeks in the first half of fiscal 2012 and 28 weeks in the first half of fiscal 2011. The most significant impacts of the fiscal quarter change occurred in the first fiscal quarter.

 

Although we have not submitted financial information for the 13 week period ended June 28, 2011 in this Form 10-Q, pro-forma information for the 13 week period for the prior year is included in the press release dated August 1, 2012.

 

2012 Second Quarter Financial Highlights

Net income was $4.6 million for the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2012 compared to $3.9 million for the 12 weeks ended July 12, 2011. The change in net income was driven primarily by:

 

An increase in comparable Company Store sales of 5.1%, including 420 basis points related to average check increase and 90 basis points related to increased traffic;
A reduction in Company Store expenses as a percentage of Company Store revenue of approximately 260 basis points;
An increase in franchise and other revenue, of $0.6 million to $3.5 million.

 

Diluted earnings per share was $0.05 per share for both the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2012 and the 12 weeks ended July 12, 2011.
System-wide comparable store sales increased by 5.7% for the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2012, reflecting growth of 5.1% for Company Stores and growth of 6.4% for Franchise Stores. System-wide comparable store sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, represent the change in year-over-year sales for all Company and Franchise Stores opened for at least one full fiscal year.

 

14
 

   
Total revenue increased to $66.0 million for the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2012, compared to $58.9 million for the 12 weeks ended July 12, 2011. The change in total revenue was primarily due to one more week in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and improvements in comparable store sales.
Seven new Franchise Stores were opened in the U.S. during the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2012.
Six new International Stores were opened by our international partners during the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2012.

 

2012 Second Quarter Business Highlights

 

Store Sales

 

During the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, sales at system-wide Jamba Juice Stores opened more than one full fiscal year increased 5.7% reflecting increases of 5.1% for Company Stores and 6.4% for Franchise Stores. For Company Stores, this increase represents the seventh consecutive fiscal quarter of Company Store comparable sales growth. The increase in Company Store comparable sales during the quarter was largely attributable to improved traffic and an average check increase which also reflected a price increase. We also achieved growth in Company same store sales for all day parts.

 

We continue to drive repeat and habitual traffic with our product and menu expansion. During the quarter, we introduced our Make It Light™ versions of our top 10 classic smoothie beverages, which contain one-third fewer calories, carbohydrates and sugar than the original recipes. For the summer season, we reintroduced our product line of Fruit Refreshers, including a new flavor, Watermelon Splash™. Our Fruit Refreshers are made with coconut water and whole fruit and deliver the natural hydration benefits of coconut water and have essential electrolytes. After doubling the number of juice blend flavors to six in Phase One of our fresh juice initiative, we continued our work in anticipation of Phase Two. We intend to launch a new juice bar concept, which will be tested in a selection of Jamba Juice Stores.

 

During the quarter, we took a leadership position to inspire a healthy, active lifestyle by announcing the formation of the Jamba® Healthy Living Council (the “Council”). The Council was established with the goal to provide consumers with useful, practical information to help them live a healthier lifestyle. The Council is comprised of nationally renowned nutrition and dietary experts who will work with Jamba to create healthy living education materials, online content for Jamba’s website, develop school nutrition outreach initiatives, advise management on nutrition trends, and provide input on new menu concepts and healthy choice options as we continue to evolve our product line.

 

As part of raising awareness around the importance of healthy active lifestyles, we entered into an agreement with Competitor Group, Inc., a leading active lifestyle sports media and event entertainment company, to be the “Official Blended Fruit Beverage and Smoothie” sponsor of seven events in the popular Rock’n’Roll Marathon series. The Organic Center, the leading research and education institute focused on the science of organic food and farming, pledged along with other partners including the WNBA, National PTA, USA Water Polo, the Golden State Warriors and nutrition expert Tara Gidus, to support our annual Team Up for a Healthy America™ program to raise awareness of the nation’s obesity epidemic, by encouraging individuals to make weekly pledges to live a healthier lifestyle. In addition, international tennis star Venus Williams is the spokesperson for our Team Up for a Healthy America campaign.

 

In order to deepen the education and nutritional expertise available to consumers in our stores, we have launched a “Master of Blending Arts” (MBA) program. We believe the program will elevate the customer experience of Jamba as a premier provider of healthy lifestyle products by advancing our team members knowledge in product nutrition, the benefits of juice and juicing, and their expertise in custom beverage creation. In addition, we have developed and are currently testing new service standards called BOOST. We intend to roll out our BOOST service standards to create a unique and memorable experience for each customer at the start of 2013. We remain focused on opportunities to refine our promotional and communication efforts to drive traffic, build loyalty and to make Jamba a top-of-mind healthy food and beverage brand.

 

Franchising

 

We continue to grow our restaurant concept primarily through the development of new Franchise Stores. As of July 3, 2012, the Jamba system is comprised of approximately 61% Franchise Store locations and 39% Company Store locations globally.

 

Domestic

 

During the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, franchisees developed and opened seven new Franchise Stores, consisting of three traditional stores and four non-traditional stores. We expect to open 40 to 50 stores in fiscal 2012 primarily through franchises. The actual number of openings may differ from our expectations due to various factors, including franchisee access to capital and economic conditions.

During the quarter, international tennis star and Jamba franchise owner Venus Williams opened two stores in the Washington D.C. area at Dupont Circle and Union Station. Ms. Williams is a member of the Washington Kastles, a Washington D.C. professional tennis team and is a long-time philanthropist and supporter of academic enrichment and sports programs in the Washington, D.C. community.

 

The expansion of our new growth concept, JambaGoTM, continued to progress in K-12 schools, convenience stores and other locations during the quarter. This innovative "station” concept utilizes compact technology to serve smoothies in select flavors using pre-packaged ingredients. This concept will enable us to provide a healthy alternative for schools seeking solutions to combat childhood obesity.

 

During July 2012, we accelerated our initiative for launching JambaGo in schools. In partnership with the National Dairy Council, we unveiled a new fruit and dairy beverage for K-12 schools at the School Nutrition Association conference in Denver. As of July 3, 2012, there were 130 JambaGo locations and we expect to open 400 to 500 locations during fiscal 2012.

 

International

 

During the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, our master developers opened a total of six international locations, one in South Korea, four in Canada and one in the Philippines. We expect to open up to 15 international locations during fiscal 2012 and continue to actively pursue international development opportunities.

 

As of July 3, 2012, we had 783 Jamba Juice stores, globally, represented by 305 Company Stores and 448 Franchise Stores in the United States, and 30 International Stores.

 

Store-level Margins

 

During the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, our Company Store-level margins increased 260 basis points as compared to the prior year period primarily due to continued improvements in cost of sales, labor and leverage in our fixed costs as a result of our comparable store sales growth. This improvement comes despite commodity pricing pressure, particularly in areas such as dairy and fuel. We continue to focus on cost savings initiatives to help mitigate commodity price increases. We also continue to refine our labor deployment and service tools to ensure efficient service to our customers.

 

Consumer Packaged Goods

 

We continue to shift our business model to assume more control over development, manufacturing, distribution and ultimately gain more of the profit pool. In June 2012, we finalized an agreement with Nestle to acquire the product formulation and intellectual property for the Jamba All-Natural Energy Drink. As part of our strategic goal to accelerate our consumer products platform, we have started to expand distribution of the energy drink beyond the Northeast where Nestle initially focused. We have made arrangements with several retailers with national presence to increase the distribution of the Jamba All-Natural Energy Drink.

 

Our Jamba-branded CPG product line was expanded during the quarter by the addition of two new varieties of dried Apple Chips, two new varieties of Multigrain Crisps, two new varieties of the at-home blend-and-serve smoothie kit and four new varieties of Wraps. We had approximately 40 individual Jamba products at retail distribution points across all 50 states. We believe extending the Jamba brand into mass retail by continued development of CPG solutions provides significant growth opportunities.

Company Store revenue

 

Company Store revenue for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $62.5 million, an increase of $6.6 million, or 11.7%, compared to Company Store revenue of $56.0 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The increase in Company Store revenue was due primarily to one extra week in the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 compared to the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011 and to Company Store comparable sales improvement as illustrated by the following table:

Total change in Company Store revenue  $6,561 

 

 

 

(1)Calculated by inclusion of Company Store revenue for the one additional week in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

 

Company Store comparable sales increased $3.0 million for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, or 5.1% attributable to an increase of 4.2% in average check, reflecting a price increase, and in transaction count of 0.9%. Company Store comparable sales represents the change in year-over-year sales for all Company Stores opened for at least a full fiscal year. As of July 3, 2012, approximately 99% of our Company Stores had been open for at least one full fiscal year. The percentage change in Company Store comparable sales compares the sales of Company Stores during a 13 week period in 2012 to the sales from the same Company Stores for the equivalent 13 week period in the prior year.

 

Franchise and other revenue

 

Franchise and other revenue for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $3.5 million, an increase of $0.6 million, or 21.8% compared to franchise and other revenue of $2.9 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011 primarily due to the net increase in the number of Franchise and International Stores and the effect of including 13 weeks in the fiscal 2012 second quarter compared to 12 weeks in the fiscal 2011 second quarter.

 

The number of Franchise Stores and International Stores as of July 3, 2012 and July 12, 2011 was 478 and 442, respectively.

 

Cost of sales

 

Cost of sales is mostly comprised of fruit, dairy, and other products used to make smoothies and juices, paper products, costs related to managing our procurement program and vendor rebates. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, cost of sales decreased to 22.3% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 22.9% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease of cost of sales as a percentage of Company Store revenue was primarily due to a net favorable product mix shift (approximately 0.7%) partially offset by increases in commodity costs (approximately 0.2%). Cost of sales for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $14.0 million compared to $12.8 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The change from a 12 week second quarter in fiscal 2011 to a 13 week second quarter in fiscal 2012 has resulted in an increase in Company Stores cost of sales attributed to the quarter.

 

Labor

 

Labor costs are comprised of store management salaries and bonuses, hourly team member payroll, training costs and other associated fringe benefits. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, labor costs decreased to 27.4% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 29.7% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The 2.3 % decrease of labor costs as a percentage of Company Store revenue was primarily due to labor efficiencies, improved sales volumes and more effective wage management achieved. Labor costs for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $17.1 million, an increase of $0.5 million, or 3.2%, compared to $16.6 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The change from a 12 week second quarter in fiscal 2011 to a 13 week second quarter in fiscal 2012 has resulted in an increase in Company Stores labor costs partially offset by labor efficiencies, improved sales volumes and more effective wage management.

 

18
 

 

Occupancy

 

Occupancy costs include both fixed and variable portions of rent, common area maintenance charges, property taxes, licenses and property insurance for all Company Store locations. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, occupancy costs decreased to 11.7% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 12.0% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease in occupancy costs as a percentage of Company store revenue was primarily due to the impact of leverage as a result of the increase in Company Store comparable sales (approximately 0.2%). Occupancy costs for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $7.3 million, an increase of $0.6 million, or 8.9%, compared to $6.7 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The change from a 12 week second quarter in fiscal 2011 to a 13 week second quarter in fiscal 2012 has resulted in an increase in Company Stores occupancy expenses attributable to the quarter.

 

Store operating

 

Store operating expenses consist primarily of various store-level costs such as utilities, marketing, repairs and maintenance, credit card fees and other store operating expenses. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, total store operating expenses increased to 14.3% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 13.7% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The increase in total store operating expenses as a percentage of Company Store revenue was primarily due to an increase in marketing expense (approximately 0.5%) and increased credit card usage as a percentage of Company Store sales (approximately 0.3%) partially offset by leverage gained as a result of higher sales (approximately 0.2%). Total store operating expenses for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $9.0 million, an increase of $1.3 million, or 16.8%, compared to $7.7 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The change from a 12 week second quarter in fiscal 2011 to a 13 week second quarter in fiscal 2012 has resulted in an increase in Company Stores operating expenses attributable to the quarter.

 

Depreciation and amortization

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses include the depreciation of fixed assets and the amortization of intangible assets. As a percentage of total revenue, depreciation and amortization decreased to 4.3% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 4.9% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease in depreciation and amortization as a percentage of total revenue was primarily due to the impact of leverage as a result of the increase in Company Store comparable sales (approximately 0.3%). Depreciation and amortization for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $2.8 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 1.6%, compared to $2.9 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011 was primarily due to a net decrease in the number of Company Stores and related assets resulting in a reduction in the carrying value of Company Store fixed assets, partially offset by the change from a 12 week second quarter in fiscal 2011 to a 13 week second quarter in fiscal 2012. The number of Company Stores as of July 3, 2012 and July 12, 2011 was 305 and 310, respectively.

 

General and administrative

 

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses include costs associated with our corporate headquarters in Emeryville, CA, field supervision, bonuses, outside and contract services, accounting and legal fees, travel and travel-related expenses, share-based compensation and other. As a percentage of total revenue, total G&A expenses increased to 16.4% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 compared to 13.7% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. Total G&A expenses for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $10.8 million, an increase of $2.8 million, or 34.6%, compared to $8.0 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The increase of total G&A expenses was primarily due to semi-annual performance related incentives (approximately $2.0 million), fees resulting from accelerated investment in new and expanded growth initiatives (approximately $0.5 million) and the change to 13 weeks in the fiscal 2012 second quarter compared to 12 weeks in the fiscal 2011 second quarter (approximately $0.7 million).

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment when indicators of impairment are present. Expected future cash flows associated with an asset, in addition to other quantitative and qualitative analyses, including certain assumptions about expected future operating performance and changes in economic conditions are the key factors in determining undiscounted future cash flows. If the sum of the undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying value of the asset, we recognize an impairment loss equal to the amount by which carrying value exceeds the fair value of the asset.

 

Impairment of long-lived assets for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $0.2 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 46.3%, compared to $0.3 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease of impairment charge for long-lived assets was primarily due to fewer underperforming stores that had not been previously partially impaired compared to the prior year period.

 

Other operating, net

 

Other operating, net consists primarily of gain or loss on disposals, income from jambacard breakage, store lease termination and closure costs, pre-opening costs and franchise related expense, net. For the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, other operating, net was income of $0.2 million, compared to income of $0.1 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. The increase in income is primarily due to lower loss on disposal of fixed assets (approximately $0.3 million), a reduction in the estimated charges for sales tax audits (approximately $0.2 million) and lower pre-opening costs (approximately $0.1 million); partially offset by lower jambacard breakage, net of related expense (approximately $0.3 million) and higher franchise related expense, net (approximately $0.2 million).

 

19
 

 

Interest expense

 

Interest expense for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 reflected interest costs of $0.1 million for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012, offset by the reversal of $0.1 million previously accrued interest expense resulting from the revised estimate for an outstanding tax liability. Interest expense was $0.1 million for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011.

 

In addition, during the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012 and the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011, we paid cash dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock totaling $0.4 million and $0.4 million, respectively.

 

Income tax expense

 

We recorded income tax expense of 8.9% for the 13 week period ended July 3, 2012. This is due to the pretax income, a change in valuation allowance related to deductible temporary differences originating during the current year, the alternative minimum taxes and foreign withholding taxes.

 

We recorded income tax benefit of 3.2% for the 12 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our prior year tax rate was primarily affected by pretax income, a change in the valuation allowance related to deductible temporary differences originating during the current year, the release of uncertain tax benefits on certain state credits and related interest as the statute has expired and state tax payments made during the accounting period.

Total revenue for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $119.1 million, a decrease of $5.9 million or 4.8% compared to $125.0 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011.

 

Company Store revenue

 

Company Store revenue for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $112.6 million, a decrease of $6.6 million or 5.6% compared to $119.2 million for the prior year period. This decrease in Company Store revenue is primarily due to there being two fewer weeks on the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and to a net reduction in Company Stores due to the refranchising initiative partially offset by the increase in comparable store sales as illustrated by the following table:

Company Store comparable sales increased $8.5 million for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, or 8.3%, attributable to an increase of 4.2% in average check, reflecting a price increase, and in transaction count of 4.1%. Company Store comparable sales represents the change in year-over-year sales for all Company Stores opened for at least one full fiscal year. As of July 3, 2012, approximately 99% of our Company Stores had been open for at least one full fiscal year. The percentage change in Company Store comparable sales compares the sales of Company Stores during a 26 week period in 2012 to the sales from the same Company Stores for the equivalent 26 week period in the prior year.

 

Franchise and other revenue

 

Franchise and other revenue for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $6.5 million, an increase of $0.7 million, or 11.6% compared to franchise and other revenue of $5.9 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011 primarily due to the net increase in the number of Franchise and International Stores partially offset by the effect of including 26 weeks in fiscal 2012 compared to 28 weeks in fiscal 2011.

 

Cost of sales

 

Cost of sales is mostly comprised of fruit, dairy, and other products used to make smoothies and juices, paper products, costs related to managing our procurement program and vendor rebates. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, cost of sales decreased to 22.7% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 23.5% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease of cost of sales as a percentage of Company Store revenue was primarily due to a net favorable product mix shift (approximately 1.2%) partially offset by increases in commodity costs (approximately 0.4%). Cost of sales for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $25.6 million, a decrease of $2.4 million, or 8.7%, compared to $28.0 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our refranchising initiative has resulted in a decrease in the number of Company Stores and the related costs and expenses for sales associated with these refranchised Company Stores. In addition, the change from a 28 week year-to-date period in fiscal 2011 to a 26 week year-to-date-period in fiscal 2012 has resulted in a decrease in Company Stores cost of sales attributed to the period.

 

Labor

 

Labor costs are comprised of store management salaries and bonuses, hourly team member payroll, training costs and other associated fringe benefits. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, labor costs decreased to 28.9% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 32.4% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The 3.5% decrease of labor costs as a percentage of Company Store revenue was primarily due to labor efficiencies, improved sales volumes and more effective wage management achieved through a smaller, more geographically concentrated Company Store base. Labor costs for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $32.6 million, a decrease of $6.0 million, or 15.6%, compared to $38.6 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our refranchising initiative has resulted in a decrease in the number of Company Stores and the related labor costs and expenses to operate, manage, and support these refranchised Company Stores. In addition, the change from a 28 week year-to-date period in fiscal 2011 to a 26 week year-to-date-period in fiscal 2012 has resulted in a decrease in Company Stores labor costs attributed to the period.

 

Occupancy

 

Occupancy costs include both fixed and variable portions of rent, common area maintenance charges, property taxes, licenses and property insurance for all Company Store locations. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, occupancy costs decreased to 13.1% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 14.2% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease in occupancy costs as a percentage of Company store revenue was primarily due to the impact of leverage as a result of the increase in Company Store comparable sales (approximately 1.2%). Occupancy costs for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $14.7 million, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 12.8%, compared to $16.9 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our refranchising initiative has resulted in a decrease in the number of Company Stores and the related occupancy costs and expenses to operate, manage, and support these refranchised Company Stores. In addition, the change from a 28 week year-to-date period in fiscal 2011 to a 26 week year-to-date-period in fiscal 2012 has resulted in a decrease in Company Stores occupancy costs attributed to the period.

 

22
 

 

Store operating

 

Store operating expenses consist primarily of various store-level costs such as utilities, marketing, repairs and maintenance, credit card fees and other store operating expenses. As a percentage of Company Store revenue, total store operating expenses increased to 15.0% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 14.4% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The increase in total store operating expenses as a percentage of Company Store revenue was primarily due to an increase in marketing expense (approximately 0.5%) and increased credit card usage as a percentage of Company Store sales (approximately 0.3%) partially offset by leverage gained as a result of higher sales (approximately 0.3%). Total store operating expenses for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $16.8 million, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 2.1%, compared to $17.2 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our refranchising initiative has resulted in a decrease in the number of Company Stores and the related costs and expenses to operate, manage, and support these refranchised Company Stores. In addition, the change from a 28 week year-to-date period in fiscal 2011 to a 26 week year-to-date-period in fiscal 2012 has resulted in a decrease in Company Store operating costs attributed to the period.

 

Depreciation and amortization

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses include the depreciation of fixed assets and the amortization of intangible assets. As a percentage of total revenue, depreciation and amortization decreased to 4.8% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to 5.5% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease in depreciation and amortization as a percentage of total revenue was primarily due to the impact of leverage as a result of the increase in Company Store comparable sales (approximately 0.4%). Depreciation and amortization for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $5.7 million, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 15.8%, compared to $6.8 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our refranchising initiative has resulted in a decrease in the number of Company Stores and related assets, resulting in a reduction in the carrying value of Company Store fixed assets. In addition, the change from a 28 week year-to-date period in fiscal 2011 to a 26 week year-to-date-period in fiscal 2012 has resulted in a decrease in Company Stores depreciation expense attributed to the period.

 

General and administrative

 

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses include costs associated with our corporate headquarters in Emeryville, CA, field supervision, bonuses, outside and contract services, accounting and legal fees, travel and travel-related expenses, share-based compensation and other. As a percentage of total revenue, total G&A expenses increased to 16.3% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 compared to 14.8% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Total G&A expenses for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 were $19.5 million, an increase of $1.0 million, or 5.3%, compared to $18.5 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The increase of total G&A expenses was primarily due to 2012 semi-annual incentives (approximately $2.0 million) and fees resulting from accelerated investment in new and expanded growth initiatives (approximately $0.8 million), partially offset by the change to 26 weeks in the fiscal 2012 year-to-date period compared to 28 weeks in the fiscal 2011 year-to-date period (approximately $1.1 million).

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment when indicators of impairment are present. Expected future cash flows associated with an asset, in addition to other quantitative and qualitative analyses, including certain assumptions about expected future operating performance and changes in economic conditions are the key factors in determining undiscounted future cash flows. If the sum of the undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying value of the asset, we recognize an impairment loss equal to the amount by which carrying value exceeds the fair value of the asset.

 

Impairment of long-lived assets for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $0.6 million, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 37.7%, compared to $0.9 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease of impairment charge for long-lived assets was primarily due to fewer underperforming stores that had not been previously partially impaired compared to the prior year period.

 

Other operating, net

 

Other operating, net consists primarily of gain or loss on disposals, income from jambacard breakage, store lease termination, and closure costs, pre-opening costs and franchise related expenses, net. For the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, other operating, net was $0.2 million of expense, compared to expense of $0.6 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease in expense is primarily due a decrease in pre-opening costs (approximately $0.3 million), lower loss on disposal of fixed assets as sale of Company Stores pursuant to our refranchising initiative ended in April 2011 (approximately $1.0 million), and a decline in expenses for store closures and store lease terminations (approximately $0.1 million), partially offset by lower jambacard breakage, net of related expense (approximately $0.7 million), an increase in franchise related expense, net (approximately $0.4 million).

 

23
 

 

Interest expense

 

Interest expense for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 was $0.1 million compared to $0.3 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. The decrease was due primarily to the reversal of $0.1 million of previously accrued interest expense resulting from the revised estimate of an outstanding tax liability.

 

In addition, during the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, we paid cash dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock totaling $0.8 million.

 

Income tax expense

 

We have recorded a tax expense of 6.5% for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012. The effective tax expense was primarily due to the pretax income, a change in valuation allowance related to deductible temporary differences originating during the current year, the alternative minimum taxes and foreign withholding taxes.

 

We have recorded a tax benefit of 5.9% for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Our prior year tax rate was primarily affected by pretax loss, a change in the valuation allowance related to deductible temporary differences originating during the current year, the release of uncertain tax benefits on certain state credits and related interest as the statutes have expired.

 

KEY FINANCIAL METRICS AND NON-GAAP MEASURES

 

Management reviews and discusses its operations based on both financial and non-financial metrics. Among the key financial metrics upon which management focuses is reviewing the performance based on the Company’s consolidated GAAP results, including Company Store comparable sales. Management also uses certain supplemental, non-GAAP financial metrics in evaluating financial results, including Franchise Store comparable sales and system-wide comparable sales.

 

Company Store comparable sales represent the change in year-over-year sales for all Company Stores opened for at least one full fiscal year.

 

Franchise Store comparable sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, represents the change in year-over-year sales for all Franchise Stores opened for at least one full fiscal year, as reported by franchisees and exclude International Stores.

 

System–wide comparable store sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, represents the change in year-over-year sales for all Company and Franchise Stores opened for at least one full fiscal year and are based on sales by both company-owned and franchise-operated stores, as reported by franchisees, which are in the store base. System-wide comparable store sales do not include International Stores and JambaGo locations.

 

Company-owned stores that were sold in refranchising transactions are included in the store base for each accounting period of the fiscal quarter in which the store was sold to the extent the sale is consummated at least three days prior to the end of such accounting period, but only for the days such stores have been company-owned. Thereafter, such stores are excluded from the store base until such stores have been franchise-operated for at least one full fiscal year at which point such stores are included in the store base and compared to sales in the comparable period of the prior year. Comparable store sales exclude closed locations.

 

Management reviews the increase or decrease in Company Store comparable store sales, Franchise Store comparable sales and system-wide comparable sales compared with the same period in the prior year to assess business trends and make certain business decisions. The Company believes that Franchise Store comparable sales and system-wide comparable sales data, non-GAAP, financial measures, are useful in assessing the overall performance of the Jamba brand and, ultimately, the performance of the Company.

 

The following table sets forth operating data that do not otherwise appear in our consolidated financial statements as of and for the13 and 26 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and for the 12 and 28 week periods ended July 12, 2011, respectively:

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Cash Flows Summary

 

The following table summarizes our cash flows for the 26 and 28 week periods ended July 3, 2012 and July 12, 2011 (in thousands):

 

         
  

26 Week
Period Ended
July 3, 2012

 
  

28 Week
Period Ended
July 12, 2011

 
 
Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities  $11,849   $(3,266)
Net cash used in investing activities   (2,170)   (3,064)
Net cash used in financing activities   (751)   (750)
           
Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents  $8,928   $(7,080)

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash provided by operating activities was $11.8 million for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to cash used in operating activities of $3.3 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011, reflecting a net increase of cash flows of $15.1 million. This increase was primarily due to improved cash flows related to receivables (approximately $4.8 million), an increase in net income adjusted for noncash items (approximately $4.6 million) and a net increase in cash flows related to prepaid rent, other assets and liabilities (approximately $5.7 million). Collections of receivables during the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 included amounts (approximately $4.3 million), from Costco which were not included in the prior year period, as we recommenced our jambacard program in the fall of 2011. In the Costco jambacard program, we sell jambacards to Costco who resells them to its customers.

 

The amount of cash used in our operating activities during any particular quarter is highly subject to variations in the seasons, with the first and fourth quarters of the fiscal year encompassing the winter and holiday season when we traditionally generate our lowest revenue, and our second and third quarters of the fiscal year encompassing the warmer seasons where a significant portion of our revenue and cash flows are realized. For more information on seasonality, refer to the section below entitled “Seasonality and Quarterly Results.” We also expect to have increased expenditures during the first part of the fiscal year as we invest in product development and domestic expansion with the goal to have new products released and new stores open by mid-year to take advantage of the busier summer months.

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $2.2 million for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to $3.1 million for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. Net cash used in investing activities decreased $0.9 million for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012, compared to the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011 primarily due to a decrease in spending for the purchase of property and equipment (approximately $4.3 million) partially offset by proceeds from our refranchising initiative which were included in the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011 (approximately $3.1 million) and which were not included in the current year period due to the completion of the refranchising initiative in April 2011, and front end cash payment for our business acquisition during the quarter (approximately $0.4 million).

 

In fiscal 2012, we expect to incur capital expenditures of about $6 million depending on our liquidity needs, including investing in improvements to our technology infrastructure and maintenance capital, and our opening of up to nine new Company Stores as we focus our growth on expanding and accelerating the development of traditional and non-traditional Franchise Stores.

 

Financing Activities

 

Net cash used in financing activities was $0.8 million for the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012 and for the 28 week period ended July 12, 2011. There were no conversions of shares of Series B preferred stock to common stock during the 26 week period ended July 3, 2012.

 

Capital Resources

 

As of July 3, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $28.5 million compared to $19.6 million in cash and cash equivalents as of January 3, 2012. As of July 3, 2012 and January 3, 2012, we had no short term or long term debt. Our primary sources of liquidity are cash flows provided by operating activities. In addition, we have an existing $6 million revolving line of credit which we may utilize as described further below. In the future, and as permitted under the Securities Purchase Agreement for the Series B Preferred Stock, we may enter equipment leasing arrangements and incur additional indebtedness as necessary up to an aggregate amount of $10 million. We cannot assure, however, that such financing will be available on favorable terms or at all.

 

26
 

 

We expect that our cash on hand and future cash flows provided by operating activities will be sufficient to fund our working capital and general corporate needs, Series B Preferred Stock dividend payments and the non-discretionary capital expenditures for the foreseeable future. Our primary liquidity and capital requirements are for working capital and general corporate needs and the planned fiscal 2012 capital expenditures described above. The use of cash to fund discretionary capital expenditures will be based on the need to conserve our capital.

 

On February 14, 2012, we entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (the “Lender”) whereby the Lender provided us with a six million dollar revolving line of credit. The outstanding balance under the credit facility bears interest at a LIBOR Market Index Rate based upon the rate for one month U.S. dollar deposits, plus 3.75% per annum. Under the terms of the Credit Agreement, we are required to maintain minimum levels of trailing annual consolidated EBITDA and liquidity and are subject to limits on annual capital expenditures. The Credit Agreement terminates January 31, 2013 or may be terminated earlier by us or by the Lender. The credit facility is subject to customary affirmative and negative covenants for credit facilities of this type, including limitations on us with respect to liens, indebtedness, guaranties, investments, distributions, mergers and acquisitions and dispositions of assets. The credit facility is evidenced by a revolving note made by us in favor of the Lender, is guaranteed by us and is secured by substantially all of our assets including the assets of our subsidiaries and a pledge of stock of our subsidiaries. In addition, the Credit Agreement replaced restricted cash requirements established in prior periods, as the line of credit also collateralizes our outstanding letters of credit of $1.4 million.

 

During the 26 week period ended and as of July 3, 2012, there were no borrowings under the Credit Agreement. To acquire the credit facility, we incurred upfront fees which are being amortized over the term of the credit agreement. As of July 3, 2012, the unamortized commitment fee amount was $0.1 million and is recorded in prepaid expenses and other current assets on the balance sheet. As of July 3, 2012, we were in compliance with all related covenants and the unused borrowing capacity under the agreement was $4.6 million.

 

The adequacy of our available funds will depend on many factors, including the macroeconomic environment, the operating performance of our Company Stores, the successful expansion of our franchise and licensing programs and the successful rollout and consumer acceptance of our new beverage and food initiatives. Given these factors, our foremost priorities for the near term continue to be preserving and generating cash sufficient to fund our liquidity needs.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

There have been no significant changes to our contractual obligations table as disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 3, 2012. There were no changes to dividends payable in connection with, or payments for redemption of, our outstanding Series B-1 and Series B-2 Preferred Stock.

 

COMMODITY PRICES, AVAILABILITY AND GENERAL RISK CONDITIONS

 

We contract for significant amounts of individually quick frozen fruit, fruit concentrate and dairy products to support the needs of both our Company Stores and Franchise Stores. The price and availability of these commodities directly impacts our results of operations and can be expected to impact our future results of operations.

 

SEASONALITY AND QUARTERLY RESULTS

 

Our business is subject to seasonal fluctuations. We expect to realize significant portions of our revenue during the second and third quarters of the fiscal year, which align with the warmer summer season. In addition, quarterly results are affected by the timing of the opening of new stores and weather conditions. However, geographic diversification of our store locations may conceal or diminish the financial statement impact of such seasonal influences. Because of the seasonality of our business, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full fiscal year or any subsequent quarter.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to adopt accounting policies and make significant judgments and estimates to develop amounts reflected and disclosed in the financial statements. In many cases, there are alternative policies or estimation techniques that could be used. We maintain a process to review the application of our accounting policies and to evaluate the appropriateness of the many estimates that we are required to make in order to prepare the financial statements. However, even under optimal circumstances, estimates routinely require adjustment based on changing circumstances and the receipt of new or better information. There have been no significant changes to the policies and estimates as discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 3, 2012.

ITEM  3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

The following discussion of market risks contains forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from the following discussion based on general conditions in the financial and commodity markets.

 

We purchase fruit based on short-term seasonal pricing agreements. These short-term agreements generally set the price of procured frozen fruit and 100% fruit juice concentrates for less than one year based on estimated annual requirements. In order to mitigate the effects of price changes in any one commodity on its cost structure, we contract with multiple suppliers both domestically and internationally. These agreements typically set the price for some or all of our estimated annual fruit requirements, protecting us from short-term volatility. Nevertheless, these agreements typically contain a force majeure clause, which, if utilized (such as when hurricanes in 2004 destroyed the Florida orange crop and more recently with the freeze that affected California citrus), may subject us to significant price increases.

 

Our pricing philosophy is not to attempt to change consumer prices with every move up or down of the commodity market, but to take a longer term view of managing margins and the value perception of our products in the eyes of our customers. Management’s objective is to maximize our revenue through increased customer frequency. However, management has the ability to increase certain menu prices in response to food commodity prices.

 

We do not purchase derivative instruments on the open market.

 

We are subject to changes in the risk free interest rate in connection with the cash we hold in interest bearing accounts.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have established and maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that material information relating to the Company and our subsidiaries required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only a reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management was necessarily required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. We carried out an evaluation 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 of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of July 3, 2012.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) during the fiscal quarter ended July 3, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
