Financial report summary

  • We are exploring various strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value, but this strategic review process may not result in the achievement of the desired goal of enhancing shareholder value.
  • General economic and business conditions as well as those specific to the restaurant industry may adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • We face intense competition, and if we are unable to compete effectively or if customer preferences change, our business, financial condition and results of operations may be adversely affected.
  • Failure of our efforts designed to effect a turn-around of the business could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Our ability to service our debt obligations is primarily dependent upon our future financial performance.
  • The impact of inflation may adversely affect our results of operations.
  • We face the risk of adverse publicity and litigation, which could have a material adverse effect on our business and financial performance.
  • We are subject to risks related to the provision of employee healthcare benefits, worker’s compensation and employee injury claims.
  • An increase in the minimum wage and regulatory mandates could adversely affect our financial performance.
  • We may be required to recognize additional impairment charges.
  • We may be harmed by security risks we face in connection with our electronic processing and transmission of confidential customer and employee information.
  • Labor shortages or increases in labor costs could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
  • If we are unable to anticipate and react to changes in food, utility and other costs, our results of operations could be materially adversely affected.
  • Our business is subject to extensive federal, state and local laws and regulations.
  • Termination of franchise agreements may disrupt restaurant performance.
  • Franchisees may breach the terms of their franchise agreements in a manner that adversely affects the reputation of our brands.
  • Our strategic initiative to transition the majority of our company-owned Fuddruckers restaurants to franchise operators may not be fully realizable.
  • Expansion of our CCS operations may not be successful.
  • Failure to collect account receivables could adversely affect our results of operations.
  • If we lose the services of any of our key management personnel, our business could suffer.
  • Our business is subject to seasonal fluctuations, and, as a result, our results of operations for any given quarter may not be indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full fiscal year.
  • We may not be able to adequately protect our intellectual property, which could harm the value of our brands and adversely affect our business.
  • The price of our common stock may experience volatility.
  • Appraisals of our properties are estimates of value and may not necessarily correspond to realizable value.
Management Discussion
  • Comparability between quarters is affected by the varying lengths of the quarters and quarters ending at different points in the calendar year when seasonal patterns for sales are different. Both the quarter ended December 18, 2019 and the quarter ended December 19, 2018 consisted of 16 weeks.
  • The Company has five reportable segments: Luby's cafeterias, Fuddruckers restaurants, Cheeseburger in Paradise, Fuddruckers franchise operations, and Culinary contract services.
  • Total restaurant sales decreased approximately $7.5 million in the quarter ended December 18, 2019 compared to the quarter ended December 19, 2018. The decrease in restaurant sales included an approximate $6.0 million decrease in sales at stand-alone Fuddruckers restaurants, and approximate $1.9 million decrease in sales at stand-alone Luby's Cafeterias, and an approximate $0.1 million decrease in sales at Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurants, partially offset by an approximate $0.4 million increase in sales from Combo locations.
