Full Year 2012 Targets

Raising Full Year Fiscal 2012 Targets

Diluted EPS Target

The Company is raising its target for full year fiscal 2012 earnings per diluted share to $5.50 to $5.55 from its prior target range of $5.38 to $5.48. If the Company meets its target, it would generate diluted earnings per share growth of 18% to 19% versus adjusted fiscal 2011 diluted earnings per share. This increase in the full year fiscal 2012 target includes a favorable impact of $0.02 to $0.03 per diluted share in full year fiscal 2012 from the pending acquisition of the Raleigh-Durham market. The earnings per diluted share target does not assume additional share repurchases.

The full year fiscal 2012 diluted earnings per share target is based on the following key assumptions:

Comparable Net Bakery-Cafe Sales Growth

The Company is raising its target for Company-owned comparable bakery-cafe sales growth for fiscal 2012 to 4.5% to 5.5% from its prior target of 4.0% to 5.0% based on improved expectations related to the Company's sales-building initiatives. This target assumes transaction growth of 50 to 100 basis points and average check growth of approximately 4.0% to 4.5% on average year-over-year pricing of approximately 3.25%, and mix impact on check of approximately 1.0%.

New Unit Development and AWS

The Company has increased its fiscal 2012 new unit target to approximately 115 to 120 system-wide new unit openings from 110 to 115 units. It has also increased its target for average weekly net sales performance for new Company-owned units to $40,000 to $42,000 from $39,000 to $41,000.

Operating Margin

The Company's fiscal 2012 EPS target assumes its fiscal 2012 operating margin will be roughly flat after the impact of the Raleigh-Durham acquisition on a year-over-year basis versus adjusted fiscal 2011.

First Quarter of Fiscal 2012 Outlook

Establishing First Quarter of Fiscal 2012 Targets

Diluted EPS Target

The Company's first quarter of fiscal 2012 diluted earnings per share target assumes earnings per diluted share of $1.33 to $1.35, which would represent an increase of 22% to 24% in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 versus the comparable period in fiscal 2011.

The first quarter of fiscal 2012 diluted earnings per share target includes the following key assumptions:

Comparable Net Bakery-Cafe Sales Growth

The range for the Company's first quarter of fiscal 2012 Company-owned comparable bakery-cafe sales growth is targeted at 7.0% to 7.5% versus the comparable period in 2011. The two year Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales target is 10.3% to 10.8%. The assumptions underlying this comparable net bakery-cafe sales growth target for the fiscal first quarter are transaction growth of 2.0% to 2.5%, including 200 basis points of favorable impact related to the inclement weather experienced last year, and average check growth of approximately 5.0%. Average check growth is comprised of retail price increases of approximately 3.75% and approximately 1.25% positive impact from mix, driven primarily by the Company's catering sales growth.

The Company announced today Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales in the first 41 days of the first quarter of fiscal 2012 were up approximately 8.9%, including approximately 350 basis points of favorable impact from inclement weather experienced in the comparable period of fiscal 2011.

Operating Margin Target

In the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company is targeting operating margin to be modestly favorable versus the prior fiscal period reflecting operating leverage from sales growth.

Departure of Chief Financial Officer

The Company is also announcing today that Jeff Kip, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, is leaving the Company on March 15th to join IAC/InterActiveCorp as its Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. The Company has initiated a search for Mr. Kip's replacement.

Bill Moreton, commented, "Jeff has been a key strategic partner to Ron and myself over the six years that he has served as our Chief Financial Officer and nine years that he has been with Panera. Jeff has been instrumental in helping think through our long-term capital deployment model and has brought financial discipline and rigor to our organization. We are very grateful for all of Jeff's contributions to Panera and we wish him all the best in his new role at IAC."

Mr. Kip said, "I am both very excited about the opportunity to join my new team at IAC and extremely thankful to Ron, Bill, and the entire Panera organization for my time here. While it is difficult to leave anywhere you have been as long as I have been here, I feel very good about not only what we have accomplished here over the last nine years, but also what the team has positioned the Company to achieve going forward."

Concluding Comment

Bill Moreton, CEO, commented, "As we close our fourth consecutive year of 24% plus EPS growth and look forward to another strong year in 2012, we continue to feel very good about our strategy of investing consistently in the quality of our concept and customer experience to drive competitive differentiation over the medium and long term. We have seen these investments manifest themselves in our strong, consistent comp store sales growth and our record-setting new unit volumes over a multi-year period. Additionally, we are very pleased that we have also been able to deploy a meaningful amount of our excess cash -- $400 million over the last year and a half -- to drive earnings growth and shareholder returns. We look forward to another strong year in 2012 with our EPS growth currently targeted at the high end of our long-term target range of 15-20%."

Notes:

The Company will host a conference call that will be broadcast on the Internet at 8:30 A.M. Eastern Time on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 to discuss the fourth quarter fiscal 2011 results, preliminary comparable net bakery-cafe sales results for the first 41 days of the first quarter of fiscal 2012 and first quarter and full year targets and business outlook for fiscal 2012. To access the call or view a copy of this release, go to http://www.panerabread.com/investor. Access to the call will be made available for 14 days after the call, and the release will be archived for one year.

We include in this release information on Company-owned, franchise-operated, and system-wide comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages. Company-owned comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages are based on net sales from Company-owned bakery-cafes included in our base store bakery-cafes. Franchise-operated comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages are based on net sales from franchised bakery-cafes, as reported by franchisees, that are included in our base store bakery-cafes. Acquired Company-owned and franchise-operated bakery-cafes and other restaurant or bakery-cafe concepts are included in the Company's comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages after it has acquired a 100 percent ownership interest and if such acquisition occurred prior to the first day of the Company's prior fiscal year. Comparable net bakery-cafe sales exclude closed locations.

Comparable net bakery-cafe sales percentages are non-GAAP financial measures, which should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other measures of performance prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, and may not be equivalent to comparable net bakery-cafe sales as defined or used by other companies. The Company does not record franchise-operated net bakery-cafe sales as revenues. However, royalty revenues are calculated based on a percentage of franchise-operated net bakery-cafe sales, as reported by franchisees. The Company uses franchise-operated and net system-wide sales information internally in connection with store development decisions, planning, and budgeting analyses. The Company believes franchise-operated and net system-wide sales information is useful in assessing consumer acceptance of its brand; facilitates an understanding of its financial performance and the overall direction and trends of sales and operating income; helps the Company appreciate the effectiveness of its advertising and marketing initiatives which its franchisees also contribute based on a percentage of their net sales; and provides information that is relevant for comparison within the industry.
