Please refer to the historical reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Share, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow included in the following tables.

John Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We generated another quarter of growing franchise and company same-store sales as we continue to build on the positive momentum from our brand revitalization. Our America's Diner strategy, supported by our newly launched Heritage remodel program, continues to resonate with our guests and our franchisees. The investments we are making in our remodel program contributed to our company restaurants growing same-store guest traffic for the second consecutive quarter. We remain focused on driving long-term shareholder value through our brand revitalization strategy. Our strong balance sheet and free cash flow enables us to prudently allocate capital between reinvesting in the brand and returning value to shareholders."

Second Quarter Results

Denny's total operating revenue, including company restaurant sales and franchise and license revenue, was $114.6 million resulting from a reduction in both company restaurant sales and franchise and license revenue. Franchise and license revenue was $33.5 million compared with $33.7 million due to a decrease in occupancy revenue, partially offset by an increase in royalty revenue from nine additional equivalent franchised restaurants. Company restaurant sales were $81.1 million compared with $82.8 million due to five fewer equivalent company restaurants. The reduction in equivalent company restaurants includes the impact of the previously announced temporary closure for the reconstruction of the highest volume restaurant located in Las Vegas and temporary closures for remodeling restaurants. The decrease in company restaurant sales was partially offset by a 3.7% increase in same-store sales during the quarter.

Denny's opened three franchised restaurants in the second quarter of this year and closed six system restaurants (five franchised and one company) bringing the total restaurant count to 1,693, comprised of 160 company restaurants and 1,533 franchised restaurants.

Franchise operating margin was $22.8 million, or 68.2% of franchise and license revenue, an increase of 2.5 percentage points. This improvement was primarily due to an increase in royalties. Company restaurant operating margin of $11.5 million, or 14.2% of company restaurant sales, expanded 0.5 percentage points. The increase in company margin was primarily driven by a reduction in payroll and benefits and occupancy costs, which were partially offset by higher product costs and the previously mentioned temporary restaurant closure in Las Vegas. In the second quarter of 2013, this high volume restaurant generated pre-tax operating income of $0.8 million on sales of $2.1 million.

Total general and administrative expenses of $14.1 million and depreciation and amortization expense of $5.3 million were both flat to the prior year. Net operating gains, losses and other charges, which include restructuring charges, exit costs, impairment charges and gains or losses on the sale of assets, decreased $1.4 million in the quarter. Interest expense improved $0.3 million to $2.3 million as a result of lower interest rates under the Company's refinanced credit facility. In the second quarter, the provision for income taxes was $4.7 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 36.4%. Due to the use of net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards, the Company paid $0.8 million in cash taxes during the second quarter.

Denny's second quarter net income of $8.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, increased 33.5% compared to prior year quarter net income of $6.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. Adjusted net income* of $8.3 million grew 9.2% compared to prior year quarter adjusted net income* of $7.6 million. Adjusted Net Income per Share* of $0.09 increased 15.7% compared with the prior year quarter Adjusted Net Income per Share* of $0.08.

Denny's generated $11.6 million of Free Cash Flow* in the second quarter, after spending $6.7 million on capital expenditures, primarily to remodel 17 company restaurants. During the quarter, the Company repurchased 2.3 million shares for $14.9 million. As of June 25, 2014, the Company had repurchased 19.4 million shares since initiating its share repurchase strategy in November 2010. At the end of the second quarter, the Company had 5.6 million authorized shares remaining to be purchased. Denny's ended the second quarter with $179.9 million of total debt outstanding, including $105.0 million of borrowings under the revolving line of credit and $56.3 million of term loan debt outstanding.

Business Outlook

Mark Wolfinger, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Our ability to grow profitability and Free Cash Flow* while making investments in our company restaurants through our Heritage remodel program is a testament to our highly franchised business, which provides financial stability and flexibility. Returning value to our shareholders remains a very important part of our strategic plan as evidenced by the 2.3 million shares repurchased in the second quarter of this year. With our momentum growing through the first half of the year, we are well positioned to raise our annual guidance."

Key considerations impacting the Company's outlook for 2014 include:

• 2014 will include 53 operating weeks (14 in the fourth quarter) compared to 52 operating weeks in 2013.• The highest volume company operated restaurant located on the Las Vegas Strip is closed for reconstruction and expected to reopen in early 2015. In 2013, this restaurant generated $7.9 million of sales and $2.9 million of pre-tax operating income. The new retail development will include a completely reconstructed Denny's restaurant, funded by the landlord, where Denny's will have a new long-term lease.

Based on year-to-date results and management's expectations at this time, Denny's is updating the Company's financial guidance for full year 2014. The Company is increasing expectations for Adjusted EBITDA* and Free Cash Flow* in addition to updating expectations for other selected components.

(1) The Company believes that, in addition to other financial measures, Adjusted Income Before Taxes, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share are appropriate indicators to assist in the evaluation of its operating performance on a period-to-period basis. The Company also uses Adjusted Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow internally as performance measures for planning purposes, including the preparation of annual operating budgets, and for compensation purposes, including bonuses for certain employees. Adjusted EBITDA is also used to evaluate its ability to service debt because the excluded charges do not have an impact on its prospective debt servicing capability and these adjustments are contemplated in its credit facility for the computation of its debt covenant ratios. Free Cash Flow, defined as Adjusted EBITDA less cash portion of interest expense net of interest income, capital expenditures, and cash taxes, is used to evaluate operating effectiveness and decisions regarding the allocation of resources. However, Adjusted Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, operating income, net income or other financial performance measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
(2) Tax adjustments for the three and six months ended June 25, 2014 are calculated using the Company's year-to-date effective tax rate of 33.3%. Tax adjustments for the three and six months ended June 26, 2013 are calculated using the Company's year-to-date effective tax rate of 31.5%.
