"While 2009 was, without a doubt, a difficult year for the restaurant industry and for Red Robin, we were able to leverage our experiences with marketing, promotional activity and consumer research to develop a comprehensive plan to drive traffic in 2010," said Dennis Mullen, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc.'s chief executive officer. "We expect that our 2010 plan will allow us to strengthen guest loyalty and retention with product news that emphasizes Red Robin quality, variety and value, and remain focused on the fundamentals of our business by managing controllable costs and further increasing brand awareness. In addition, as follow up to a Form 13D filing with the SEC on December 22, 2009, we have had constructive dialog with the shareholder group that filed the Form 13D, and our independent directors have also had discussions with our large shareholders. We also are implementing several corporate governance changes that have been under consideration for some time that we believe will benefit the Company and its shareholders. And, as always, we are extremely proud of our Team Members for their hard work and dedication to serving our Guests and contributing to Red Robin's success."
Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2009 Results
Comparable restaurant sales decreased 10.5% for company-owned restaurants in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009 compared to the fiscal fourth quarter of 2008, driven by a 9.3% decrease in guest counts and a 1.2% decrease in the average guest check. Average weekly comparable sales from the 277 company-owned comparable restaurants were $50,249 in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009, compared to $57,073 for the 241 company-owned comparable restaurants in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2008. Average weekly sales for the 29 non-comparable company-owned restaurants were $49,167 in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009, compared to $55,188 for the 39 non-comparable restaurants in the fiscal fourth quarter a year ago. For all company-owned restaurants, average weekly sales were $50,148 from the 3,666 operating weeks in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009 compared to $56,446 from the 3,537 operating weeks in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2008.
Total company revenues, which include company-owned restaurant sales and franchise royalties and fees, decreased 8.3% to $182.2 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009, versus $198.6 million last year. Franchise royalties and fees decreased 13.4% to $2.6 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009 compared to $3.0 million in the same period a year ago.
For the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009, the Company's U.S. franchise restaurant sales of $61.9 million were lower compared to $68.4 million in the prior year period.

Schedule I of this earnings release reconciles restaurant-level operating profit to income from operations and net income for all periods presented. The Company's restaurant-level operating profit metric is designed to afford management and investors with a basis for considering and comparing performance at the store level. It is not calculated in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). It is intended to supplement, rather than replace GAAP results. Restaurant-level operating profit is useful to management and to the Company's investors because it allows management and investors to separate discrete operations of the restaurants from corporate infrastructure and overhead expenses, thus permitting a comparison of the performance of the Company at the restaurant operations level both internally among the Company's restaurants, and externally to other restaurant companies. As this measure has been used for years, it also provides investors a basis of comparison of margins for the Company's individual restaurants historically.
The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant impairment costs in the event closure or impairment charges are incurred. The measure includes occupancy costs which include fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs. The measure does not include general and administrative costs, pre-opening costs and costs associated with the tender offer of stock options attributed to non-restaurant employees. The measure also does not include depreciation and amortization expense because it represents a historical sunk cost which does not impact the profitability of the operations of the restaurants in the current economic environment for the periods presented.
As the Company's marketing strategies have evolved, the Company has determined that marketing-related expenses are best reflected in the selling, general and administrative expense category of the Company's income statement. The coordination and management of marketing strategies have historically been made at the discretion of the Company's restaurant general managers. However, beginning with the launch of the Company's first media advertising campaigns in 2007, these strategies are now being developed and implemented at the direction of the Company's centralized marketing organization. As further noted in Schedule I of this earnings release, the Company has reclassified marketing-related expenses from restaurant operating expenses to the selling, general and administrative expense category. The Company has reclassified all periods presented in its income statement for purposes of comparability. The table below outlines the fiscal quarter and full year impact of this reclassification of marketing expenses from operating expenses to selling general and administrative expenses for the years 2008 and 2009. (In millions.)
Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 2009 (16 weeks) (12 weeks) (12 weeks) (12 weeks) (52 weeks) Restaurant operating $ (4.6 ) $ (3.4 ) $ (4.0 ) $ (3.2 ) $ (15.2 ) costs Selling, general, and administrative costs $ 4.6 $ 3.4 $ 4.0 $ 3.2 $ 15.2 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 2008 (16 weeks) (12 weeks) (12 weeks) (12 weeks) (52 weeks) Restaurant operating $ (6.9 ) $ (5.6 ) $ (5.7 ) $ (5.4 ) $ (23.6 ) costs Selling, general, and administrative costs $ 6.9 $ 5.6 $ 5.7 $ 5.4 $ 23.6
Selling, general and administrative expenses as adjusted were $17.4 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009 and $17.2 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2008, which were 9.6% and 8.7% of total revenue, respectively.
Net interest expense was $1.8 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009 and $2.1 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2008.
Net income for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2009 was $1.6 million or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.8 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2008.
Schedule II of this earnings release reconciles the impact on net income and diluted earnings per share as reported on a GAAP basis in the fiscal fourth quarters and fiscal full years 2009 and 2008 to adjusted amounts excluding certain charges in the fourth quarter of 2008 and fiscal year 2008 and 2009.
For the full fiscal year 2009, the Company's effective tax rate was 18.3%, which was below the 21.0% that was previously estimated and lower than the 26.6% effective tax rate for the full fiscal year 2008.
Balance Sheet and Liquidity
On December 27, 2009, the Company held $20.3 million in cash and equivalents and had a total outstanding debt balance of $191.3 million, including $122.7 million in borrowings under the $150 million term loan, $62.0 million of borrowings under the $150 million revolving credit facility and $6.6 million outstanding for capital leases. The Company has also issued $5.0 million of outstanding letters of credit under its revolving credit facility. Since the end of the fourth quarter, the Company has made additional debt repayments of $4.5 million on its revolving facility and $4.6 million on the term loan.
The Company is subject to a number of customary covenants under its credit agreement, including limitations on additional borrowings, acquisitions, dividend payments, and requirements to maintain certain financial ratios. As of December 27, 2009, the Company was in compliance with all of its debt covenants, and we expect to remain in full compliance.
Corporate Governance Update
Today the Company announced several changes to its corporate governance structure that have been under consideration for some time. The Board of Directors approved the separation of the chairman and chief executive officer roles effective immediately. The chairman role will be assumed by board member Pattye Moore - a former president and former board member of Sonic Corp. between 2000 and 2006 and who joined the Red Robin Board in August 2007 -- and Dennis Mullen will continue in his role as chief executive officer and a member of the board. The Company also announced that its two Class II directors, Edward Harvey and Gary Singer, whose terms will expire at the Annual Stockholders Meeting in 2010, have decided to not stand for reelection for personal reasons. Mr. Harvey, who joined the Company's board in 2001, currently serves as the board's lead independent director. Mr. Singer, who joined the Company's board in 2000, currently serves as the chair of the Nominating & Governance Committee of the board. The board will make further announcements related to the Board of Directors at a later time.
The Board of Directors also recently made changes to certain components of its executive compensation to add certain performance metrics. In addition to the changes to Mr. Mullen's base compensation previously announced in the Company's 8-K filing on January 11, 2010, the board intends to amend the equity compensation program for all of the Company's executive officers. Mr. Mullen's equity awards to be granted in 2010 will be 100% performance-based. For all other executive officer equity awards, all stock options will be performance-based, and restricted stock awards will vest with the passage of time. The metric to be used to measure performance-based vesting will be based on a "Total Shareholder Return" calculation. More details on the specific metrics and other elements of executive compensation will be available in the Company's proxy statement for the 2010 annual meeting of stockholders.
Pattye Moore, Red Robin's new board chair, said, "The Company's Board of Directors has taken these steps to further align executive compensation with the long-term performance of the Company and shareholder interests."
The Company's fiscal first quarter of 2010 is a 16-week quarter. Five new company-owned restaurants are currently under construction. Three of these restaurants are expected to open in the fiscal first quarter. Two new franchised restaurants are currently under construction and are expected to open early in the fiscal second quarter of 2010. During fiscal year 2010, the Company expects to open between 11 and 13 new company-owned restaurants and franchisees are expected to open four to five new restaurants.
For the 2010 fiscal year, which is a 52-week year, the Company expects revenues of $887 million to $895 million and net income of $1.27 to $1.45 per diluted share. These projected results are also based upon certain assumptions, including an expected comparable restaurant sales result of up 2.4% to 3.4%. Through February 14, 2010, the first seven weeks of the Company's 16-week fiscal first quarter of 2010, comparable restaurant sales decreased 7.8% from the prior year comparable period for company-owned restaurants. The Company estimates that the impact from winter storms in several of our markets during this seven week period impacted our comparable restaurant sales by approximately -0.8%.
The Company's annual financial guidance includes the launch next week of a $6.7 million national advertising campaign that will be funded by the Company for the spring 2010 promotion. Depending on the success of the spring promotion, the Company expects to spend another $10 million in company-sponsored advertising to be funded for the remaining two limited time offer (LTO) promotions that the Company expects will be supported with television in the summer and fall. Total 2010 television advertising spending is expected to be approximately $16.0 million to $17.0 million -- up from $2.3 million invested in television in fiscal year 2009. The Company's total marketing expense in 2010 is expected to be about $31 million compared to $15.2 million spent in fiscal 2009, which is included in selling, general and administrative expense in both years. The 2010 advertising campaign begins on February 22, 2010 for the spring LTO promotion, and will run for four weeks over a five-week period of the eight-week LTO promotion window. The timing of the summer and fall 2010 promotion has not been committed yet.
Based on the Company's development plans and other infrastructure and maintenance costs, the Company expects fiscal year 2010 capital expenditures to be approximately $35 million to $40 million, which will be funded entirely out of operating cash flow. The Company will also make scheduled payments of $18.7 million required by the term loan portion of its existing credit facility from free cash flow after capital expenditures in fiscal year 2010 and expects to use its remaining free cash flow to make payments on the Company's revolving credit facility.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Restaurant-Level Operating Profit to Income
from Operations and Net Income
(In thousands, except percentage data)
The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure includes occupancy costs, which include fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs. It does not include general and administrative costs, pre-opening costs, reacquired franchise costs, legal settlements and costs associated with the tender offer of stock options attributed to non-restaurant employees. The measure also does not include depreciation and amortization expense because it represents a historical sunk cost which does not impact the profitability of the operations of the restaurants in the current economic environment for the periods presented. The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important measure of financial performance for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment costs are excluded, because, similar to depreciation and amortization, they represent a non-cash charge for the Company's investment in its restaurants and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations. Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or net income as indicators of financial performance.
