California-based restaurant operator Dine Brands Global has posted a 23.5% decrease in its second-quarter (Q2) net income.

This decrease is due to a loss in the disposition of assets and higher general and administrative (G&A) expenses.

Net income available to shareholders for the three months to June 2023 was $17.8m, or $1.16 per share, compared with $23.3m, or $1.45 a share, in Q2 2022.

The parent to Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar, IHOP and Fuzzy’s Taco Shop restaurants also recorded a fall in its total revenues, which slipped 12.4% to $208.4m from $237.8m.

This was largely driven by the refranchising of 69 company-operated Applebee’s units in October 2022 and a fall in same-store sales at Applebee’s.

It outweighed IHOP’s 2.1% growth in domestic same-store sales.
