TH added 52 net new restaurants to end the quarter with 4,776 restaurants. For the trailing twelve month period, TH increased its restaurant base by 230 restaurants, or 5.1%.

Comparable sales growth and acceleration of net restaurant openings at BK helped drive system-wide sales growth of 11.6%. BK achieved comparable sales growth of 6.7% with positive same-store sales in all markets. U.S. and Canada and Latin America and the Caribbean notably outperformed with comparable sales growth of 7.9% and 8.5%, respectively. BK top-line growth was largely attributable to comparable sales growth and the addition of 720 net new restaurants for the trailing twelve month period. With 141 net new restaurants added in the second quarter, BK ended the period with 14,528 restaurants.

BK experienced a 6.4% FX headwind to revenues for the second quarter. Excluding the impact of FX movements, BK Total Revenues grew by 13.7% to $278.2 million versus prior year. Compared to the second quarter 2014, BK Adjusted EBITDA increased 14.7% on an organic basis.

Cash and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2015 total debt was $8.9 billion and net debt was $8.2 billion.

Key Business Metrics

We evaluate our restaurants and assess our business based on the following operating metrics.

System-wide sales growth refers to the change in sales at all company-owned and franchise restaurants in one period from the same period in the prior year. Comparable sales growth refers to the change in restaurant sales in one period from the same prior year period for restaurants that have been open for thirteen months or longer. Company-owned restaurants refranchised during a quarterly period are included with franchise restaurants for the purpose of calculating comparable sales growth for the quarter. Comparable sales and sales growth are measured on a constant currency basis, which means that results exclude the effect of foreign currency translation and are calculated by translating prior year results at current year monthly average exchange rates. We analyze key operating metrics on a constant currency basis as this helps identify underlying business trends, without distortion from the effects of currency movements ("FX Impact").

System-wide sales represent sales at all Company restaurants and franchise restaurants. We do not record franchise sales as revenues; however, our franchise revenues include royalties based on a percentage of franchise sales.

(a) During the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the increase in share-based compensation and non-cash incentive compensation
expense was due to incremental expense of $0.5 million and $8.9 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, of
share-based compensation related to the remeasurement of liability-classified stock options to fair value and additional stock options granted
during 2015 and 2014.

(a) Net losses (gains) on disposal of assets, restaurant closures and refranchisings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 primarily reflects gains in connection with a lease termination as well as the write-off of unfavorable lease balances related to this lease termination.  

(b) Net losses (gains) on derivatives for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 primarily reflects the reclassification of losses on cash flow hedges from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) to earnings as a result of de-designation and settlement of certain interest rate swaps.

(c) The increase in net losses (gains) on foreign exchange is primarily related to revaluation of foreign denominated assets and liabilities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

Below, we define the non-GAAP financial measures, provide a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and discuss the reasons that we believe this information is useful to management and may be useful to investors. These measures may differ from similarly captioned measures of other companies in our industry.

Non-GAAP Measures:

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") basis, RBI reports the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, Organic revenue growth and Organic Adjusted EBITDA growth.

EBITDA is defined as earnings (net income or loss) before interest, (gain) loss on early extinguishment of debt, taxes, and depreciation and amortization and is used by management to measure operating performance of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding the impact of share-based compensation and non-cash incentive compensation expense, (income) loss from equity method investments, net of cash distributions received from equity method investments, other operating (income) expenses, net, and all other specifically identified costs associated with non-recurring projects, including acquisition accounting impact on cost of sales and Tim Hortons transaction and restructuring costs. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to measure operating performance of the business, excluding specifically identified items that management believes do not directly reflect our core operations, and represents our measure of segment income.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income excluding the impact of those same items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and also excluding franchise agreement amortization, amortization of deferred financing costs and original issue discount, interest expense and loss (gain) on extinguished debt. Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by the number of diluted shares of RBI during the reporting period. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are used by management to evaluate the core operating performance of the business.

Revenue growth and Adjusted EBTIDA growth, on an organic basis, are non-GAAP measures that exclude FX Impact. Management believes that organic growth is an important metric for measuring the core operating performance of the business as it excludes the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. Organic growth is calculated by dividing this period's financial results by the average monthly exchange rates for the prior period.

Footnotes to Reconciliation Tables

  1. Represents (gain) loss on early extinguishment of debt, $4.9 million of non-cash interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 related to losses reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) into interest expense in connection with interest rate swaps settled in May 2015 and $1.6 million of incremental interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2015 related to the redemption of the Tim Hortons Notes and the March 2015 mandatory prepayment of our term loan.

  2. Represents share-based compensation expense associated with employee stock options for the periods indicated; also includes the portion of annual non-cash incentive compensation that eligible employees elected to receive or are expected to elect to receive as common equity in lieu of their 2014 and 2015 cash bonus, respectively.  

  3. In connection with the Transactions, we incurred certain non-recurring financing, legal and advisory fees.  We also incurred non-recurring costs to realign our global structure to better accommodate the needs of the combined business and support successful global growth.  In addition, after consummation of the Transactions, we implemented a restructuring plan that resulted in work force reductions throughout our TH business and as a result incurred incremental costs.  The restructuring is part of our on-going cost reduction efforts with the goal of driving efficiencies and creating fiscal resources that will be reinvested into our TH business.  The non-recurring general and administrative expenses include financing, legal and advisory fees, severance benefits and other compensation costs, and training expenses.  Lastly, in connection with issuing $1,250.0 million of 4.625% first lien senior secured notes due January 15, 2022 and entering into a first amendment to our credit agreement in May 2015, we incurred non-recurring financing, legal and advisory fees.   We expect to incur additional general and administrative expenses during the remainder of 2015 associated with these initiatives.

  4. Represents (i) (income) loss from equity method investments and (ii) cash distributions received from our equity method investments.  Cash distributions received from our equity method investments are included in segment income.

  5. Adjusted income tax expense for the periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, is calculated using RBI's statutory tax rate in the jurisdiction in which the costs were incurred.
