Chuy's Holdings, Inc.: Second Quarter Results Consistent With Our Long-Term Slow Growth Outlook

F2Q2022 revenues of ~$111 million were below analyst projections by ~$1 million. Earnings per share of $0.41 was consistent with consensus estimates. Chuy's Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHUY) reported mixed F2Q2022 financial results. Compared to F2Q2019, outcomes improved on all measures, except for revenues, which remained slightly behind, driven by tepid macroeconomic conditions and above normal temperatures in Texas (~41% of the restaurant footprint) that resulted in softer growth in sales derived from restaurant patios and adult beverages. However, relative to F2Q2021, CHUY underperformed on all elements, besides revenues, fueled predominantly by double digit cost inflation related to dairy, fresh produce, chicken, and beef, and significantly higher hourly wages. Although, the firm raised menu prices over the first quarter and lowered spending on G&A and other operating expenses, the measures were insufficient to limit margin contraction on a year-over-year basis. As a flow-through, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, restaurant level operating margins, earnings, and free cash flows, declined compared to the prior year's same quarter. During the period, CHUY opened a restaurant in Midland, Texas, expanding the footprint to 98 restaurants.

What happens behind the cockpit door typically only ever becomes known to the public when something goes wrong. That is, the black box is recovered and the moments before some tragedy are replayed or there was some mistake and the recordings of the pilots’ transmissions are replayed. It is one of those things that no news is good news.
