Item 2.02. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION.
On April 25, 2007, IHOP Corp. issued a press release announcing its first quarter 2007 financial results. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1, and incorporated herein by reference.
Also on April 25, 2007, IHOP Corp. held a conference call to discuss its first quarter 2007 financial results. A copy of the prepared remarks of management is attached as Exhibit 99.2, and incorporated herein by reference.
The prepared remarks of management accompanying managements discussion during the conference call include references to the non-GAAP financial measure net income excluding early debt extinguishment costs. The Company defines net income excluding early debt extinguishment costs for a given period as net income for such period, less any early debt extinguishment costs incurred in such period. Management believes net income excluding early debt extinguishment costs and basic and diluted net income per share excluding early debt extinguishment costs is useful because it provides a more accurate period to period comparison. Net income excluding early debt extinguishment costs for any given period may be affected by a variety of factors, including but not limited to, changes in assets and liabilities and the timing of purchases and payments. Net income excluding early debt extinguishment costs is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
The following table reconciles net income to net income excluding the impact of early debt extinguishment costs, and basic and diluted net income per share to net income excluding the impact of early debt extinguishment costs per share, for each of the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006:
