11:52 EDTDNKNDunkin' Brands slides after warning it may be challenged to meet SSS target
WHAT'S NEW: Earlier today, Dunkin' Brands reported third quarter earnings per share of 49c on revenue of $192.6M against analysts' consensus estimates of 47c and $196.92M, respectively. U.S. comparable store sales increased 2%, while international SSS declined 2.9%. Baskin-Robbins' U.S. SSS increased 5.8%, while international SSS for the segment were down 1.5%. Chief Executive Officer Nigel Travis noted that the company's U.S. Q3 SSS growth of 2% was a "slight" improvement from the second quarter, and the company continued to feel the impact from ongoing challenges with the economy and a highly competitive QSR breakfast and coffee environment. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The company warned that it will be a challenge to achieve the low-end of its full-year Dunkin' Donuts U.S. comparable store sales growth target of 2%-3%. Dunkin' Brands did note that it is confident it will achieve its other financial performance targets for 2014. On September 17, Dunkin' Brands reiterated its fiscal year 2014 EPS view of $1.73-$1.77 and revenue growth of 5%-7%. Analysts expected FY14 EPS of $1.75 on revenue of $754.50M.
