Applebee’s Posts Third Consecutive Quarter of Domestic System-Wide Same-Restaurant Sales Improvement, IHOP Franchisees Open 21 Restaurants, Company Retires an Additional $26 Million of Securitized Debt

GLENDALE, CA–(Marketwire – July 29, 2010) – DineEquity, Inc. (NYSE: DIN), the parent
company of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar and IHOP Restaurants, today
announced financial results for the second quarter 2010. DineEquity’s
financial performance for the second quarter and six months ended June 30,
2010 included the following highlights:

-- For the quarter, IHOP's domestic system-wide same-restaurant sales
   decreased 1.0% and Applebee's domestic system-wide same-restaurant
   sales decreased 1.6% compared to the same periods in 2009, which
   represented Applebee's third consecutive quarter of improvement.
   Year-to-date, IHOP's domestic system-wide same-restaurant sales
   decreased 0.7% and Applebee's domestic system-wide same-restaurant
   sales decreased 2.2%.

-- Securitized debt was reduced by $25.8 million for the second
   quarter 2010 and by $80.7 million in the first six months of 2010
   primarily due to the use of free cash flow for ongoing debt
   retirement efforts.

-- Restaurant operating margins at Applebee's company-operated
   restaurants improved 10 basis points to 14.1% for the second
   quarter 2010 compared to 14.0% for the same quarter of 2009 as
   the Company continued to sustain the restaurant profitability
   improvements achieved over the past two years.

-- Net income available to common stockholders was $7.4 million, or
   $0.42 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2010 compared to net
   income of $18.8 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, for the same
   quarter in 2009. For the first six months of 2010, net income available
   to common stockholders was $20.3 million, or $1.16 per diluted share,
   compared to net income of $49.4 million, or $2.87 per diluted share,
   for the same period in 2009. These decreases were primarily due to
   fewer gains in 2010 with respect to debt repurchases and asset sales
   related to Applebee's company-operated restaurants.

-- Adjusted net income available to common stockholders (see "Non-GAAP
   Financial Measures" below) was $15.7 million, or $0.90 per diluted
   share, for the second quarter 2010 compared to $20.1 million, or
   $1.16 per diluted share, for the same quarter in 2009. For the first
   six months of 2010, adjusted net income available to common stockholders
   was $34.4 million, or $1.97 per diluted share, compared to $39.8
   million, or $2.32 per diluted share, for the same period in 2009.
   These decreases were primarily due to lower operating results, a higher
   income tax rate and increased preferred dividend payments, which were
   partially offset by decreased interest expense.

-- Consolidated G&A expenses increased 8.9% to $37.0 million for the
   second quarter 2010 compared to the same quarter in 2009 primarily
   due to higher expenses for salaries and incentive compensation plans.
   For the first six months of 2010, G&A decreased 4.9% to $77.2 million
   compared to the same period in 2009 primarily due to one-time costs
   of $6.3 million incurred in February 2009 related to the
   establishment of a purchasing co-operative.

-- For the first six months of 2010, cash flows from operating activities
   were $50.3 million, consolidated capital expenditures were $6.9
   million, and free cash flow (see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below)
   was $41.0 million.

“We are pleased with our second quarter 2010. Same-restaurant sales results
at both brands were encouraging, with Applebee’s experiencing a third
sequential quarter of improvement as IHOP’s performance continued to be
strong relative to the family dining category. Our business’ significant
free cash flow generation abilities enabled the retirement of more than $80
million of securitized debt year-to-date. And, we recently announced the
sale of 63 company-operated Applebee’s restaurants that will result in a
$105 million financial benefit to the Company,” said Julia A. Stewart,
DineEquity’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Looking ahead, we
remain focused on executing our revitalizing plans for Applebee’s and
ensuring that IHOP creates an insurmountable lead in family dining. Our
plan includes marketing, menu, operational and remodel initiatives that
will differentiate the Applebee’s and IHOP brands and position DineEquity
for a solid financial performance in the second half of 2010.”

Same-Restaurant Sales Performance

IHOP’s domestic system-wide same-restaurant sales decreased 1.0% for the
second quarter 2010 compared to the same quarter in 2009. Same-restaurant
sales reflect a higher average guest check and declines in guest traffic.
This reflected timing impacts related to the Easter and Fourth of July
holidays which negatively impacted results by 40 basis points. IHOP’s
marketing efforts during the quarter included Loaded Country Potatoes and
Pancake Stackers limited-time offers, and its Kids Eat Free dinner
promotion, among other activities.

Applebee’s domestic system-wide same-restaurant sales decreased 1.6% for
the second quarter 2010, which reflected Applebee’s third quarter of
sequential improvements. Domestic franchise same-restaurant sales decreased
1.3% and company-operated Applebee’s same-restaurant sales decreased 2.6%
for the second quarter 2010 compared to the same quarter in 2009. Results
at Company restaurants reflected declines in guest traffic and a higher
average guest check, including a 1.6% increase in effective pricing, as
well as timing impacts related to the Easter holiday which positively
impacted results by 40 basis points. Applebee’s marketing efforts during
the quarter included the promotion of its Great Tasting and Under 550
Calories and Realburgers Across America menu offerings, as well as the
introduction of Applebee’s new Sizzling Skillet Entrees, among other
activities.

Applebee’s Restaurant Operating Margins

Applebee’s company-operated restaurant operating margin was 14.1% in the
second quarter 2010 compared to 14.0% for the second quarter 2009. The 10
basis point improvement was primarily due to favorable commodity costs
partially offset by increased marketing programs to drive guest traffic.

For the first six months of 2010, Applebee’s company-operated restaurant
operating margin was 14.4% compared to 15.2% for the same period in 2009.
The 80 basis point decline was primarily due to increased marketing
programs to drive guest traffic and higher facility related costs partially
offset by favorable commodity costs and continued improvements in labor
management.

Debt Management

Securitized debt was reduced by $25.8 million during the second quarter
2010 and by $80.7 million year-to-date as a result of open market purchases
and scheduled payments on the Company’s subordinated notes. DineEquity has
reduced its total outstanding debt levels by $405.5 million, or 16.4%,
since the acquisition of Applebee’s in November 2007.

As of the end of the second quarter 2010, DineEquity remained comfortably
in compliance with the debt covenants set forth in the Company’s
securitized debt agreements. The Company’s consolidated leverage ratio was
5.96x compared to a required threshold of 7.0x. Debt service coverage
ratios (DSCR) were 3.48x for IHOP’s securitized debt on a three-month
unadjusted basis and 3.70x for the Applebee’s securitized debt on a
three-month adjusted basis, both compared to a minimum required threshold
of 1.85x. Applebee’s 12-month adjusted DSCR was 3.33x, compared to a
minimum required threshold of 2.25x.

DineEquity has provided supplemental information to this news release
regarding its compliance with its debt covenants, which may be accessed by

Relations Web site at http://investors.dineequity.com and referring to

Sale of 63 Company-Operated Applebee’s

On July 23, 2010, DineEquity announced that it had entered into an asset
purchase agreement with Apple American Group LLC for the sale of 63
company-operated Applebee’s restaurants located in Minnesota and parts of
Wisconsin. This transaction is accretive to the Company’s consolidated
leverage ratio as defined by its debt covenants and furthers its strategic
objective of transitioning Applebee’s into a more highly franchised
restaurant system over time. Scheduled to close in the fourth quarter 2010,
the transaction is expected to deliver $105 million of financial benefit to
the Company including: 1) the reduction of securitized debt by $28 million
on an after-tax basis, 2) the reduction of sale-leaseback related financing
obligations by $46 million, and 3) the removal of $31 million of operating
lease obligations for debt covenant calculation purposes.

2010 Financial Performance Guidance

DineEquity provided the following update to its fiscal 2010 financial
outlook primarily reflecting the impact of the scheduled sale of 63
company-operated Applebee’s restaurants which is scheduled to be completed
in the fourth quarter 2010:

-- Reduced consolidated cash from operations guidance by $10 million to
   range between $135 and $145 million as the result of the sale of
   Applebee's company-operated restaurants. Key components that comprise
   the change include expected payments of net working capital
   liabilities, income tax payments and reduced profit contribution. This
   compares to the Company's previous expectations of $145 million to $155
   million of consolidated cash from operations in 2010.

-- Reduced consolidated free cash flow to range between $108 and $118
   million due to the reduction in consolidated cash from operations
   expectations. Free cash flow consists of consolidated cash from
   operations plus approximately $16 million generated from the structural
   run-off of the Company's long-term notes receivable. Uses of cash
   include consolidated capital expenditures of approximately $20 million
   and approximately $23 million in preferred stock dividend payments. The
   Company plans to use available free cash flow to fund securitized debt
   reductions.

-- Reduced consolidated securitized debt interest expense expectations to
   range between $170 million and $175 million for 2010, approximately
   $40 million of which is non-cash interest expense, due to more
   aggressive debt retirement efforts in the first half of 2010. This
   compares to the Company's previous expectations of $175 million to
   $180 million.

-- Increased the Company's income tax rate expectations to range between
   35% and 36% compared to previous expectations of approximately 34%.
   This change is primarily related to settlements on state tax audits.

-- Reiterated Applebee's domestic system-wide same-restaurant sales
   performance expectations to range between flat and negative 3% for
   fiscal 2010, with Applebee's franchisees slated to open between 25 and
   30 new restaurants this year.

-- Reiterated operating margin expectations at Applebee's
   company-operated restaurants to range between 13.5% and 14.5% for the
   full year 2010.

-- Reiterated IHOP's domestic system-wide same-restaurant sales
   performance expectations to range between positive 1% and negative 1%
   for fiscal 2010, with IHOP franchisees slated to open between 60 and
   70 new restaurants this year.

-- Reiterated consolidated G&A expense expectations to range between
   $158 million and $161 million for fiscal 2010, including non-cash
   stock based compensation expense and depreciation of approximately
   $20 million.

-- Reiterated depreciation and amortization expectations to range between
   $65 million and $70 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release includes references to the Company’s non-GAAP financial
measures “adjusted net income available to common stockholders (adjusted
EPS),” “EBITDA,” and “free cash flow.” Adjusted EPS is computed for a given
period by deducting from net income (loss) available to common stockholders
for such period the effect of any impairment and closure charges, any gain
related to debt extinguishment, any intangible asset amortization, any
non-cash interest expense and any gain or loss related to the disposition
of assets incurred in such period. This is presented on an aggregate basis
and a per share (diluted) basis. The Company defines “EBITDA” for a given
period as income before income taxes (including gain on extinguishment of
debt) less interest expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment and
closure charges, stock-based compensation, gain/loss on sale of assets and
non-cash amounts related to a captive insurance subsidiary. “EBITDAR” for a
given period is defined as EBITDA plus annualized operating lease expense
(Rent). “Free cash flow” for a given period is defined as cash provided by
operating activities, plus receipts from notes and equipment contracts
receivable (“long-term notes receivable”), less dividends paid and capital
expenditures. Management utilizes EBITDA for debt covenant purposes and
free cash flow to determine the amount of cash remaining for general
corporate and strategic purposes after the receipts from long-term notes
receivable, and the funding of operating activities, capital expenditures
and preferred dividends. Management believes this information is helpful to
investors to determine the Company’s adherence to debt covenants and the
Company’s cash available for these purposes. Adjusted EPS, EBITDA and free
cash flow are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures and should not be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance
prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Restaurant Data

   The following table sets forth, for the three-month and six-month
periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, the number of effective restaurants
in the Applebee's and IHOP systems and information regarding the percentage
change in sales at those restaurants compared to the same periods in the
prior year. "Effective restaurants" are the number of restaurants in a
given period, adjusted to account for restaurants open for only a portion
of the period. Information is presented for all effective restaurants in
the IHOP and Applebee's systems, which includes restaurants owned by the
Company, as well as those owned by franchisees and area licensees. Sales
at restaurants that are owned by franchisees and area licensees are not
attributable to the Company. However, we believe that presentation of
this information is useful in analyzing our revenues because franchisees
and area licensees pay us royalties and advertising fees that are
generally based on a percentage of their sales, as well as rental
payments under leases that are usually based on a percentage of their
sales. Management also uses this information to make decisions about
future plans for the development of additional restaurants as well as
evaluation of current operations.

(a) "Effective restaurants" are the number of restaurants in a given fiscal
    period adjusted to account for restaurants open for only a portion of
    the period. Information is presented for all effective restaurants in
    the IHOP and Applebee's systems, which includes restaurants owned by
    the Company as well as those owned by franchisees and area licensees.

(b) "System-wide" sales are retail sales at IHOP and Applebee's restaurants
    operated by franchisees and IHOP restaurants operated by area
    licensees, as reported to the Company, in addition to retail sales at
    company-operated restaurants.  Sales at restaurants that are owned by
    franchisees and area licensees are not attributable to the Company.

(c) "Sales percentage change" reflects, for each category of restaurants,
    the percentage change in sales in any given fiscal period compared to
    the prior fiscal period for all restaurants in that category.

(d) "Same-restaurant sales percentage change" reflects the percentage
    change in sales, in any given fiscal period compared to the same weeks
    in the prior year, for restaurants that have been operated throughout
    both fiscal periods that are being compared and have been open for at
    least 18 months. Because of new unit openings and restaurant closures,
    the restaurants open throughout both fiscal periods being compared
    may be different from period to period. Same-restaurant sales
    percentage change does not include data on IHOP restaurants located
    in Florida.

(e) Applebee's franchise restaurant sales were $870.2 million and $886.4
    million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009,
    respectively, and $1,787.4 million and $1,826.3 million for the six
    months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. IHOP franchise
    restaurant sales were $589.2 million and $564.3 million for the three
    months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, and $1,188.9
    million and $1,146.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010
    and 2009, respectively.

(f) Sales percentage change and same-restaurant sales percentage change
    for IHOP company-operated restaurants are not meaningful ("n.m.")
    due to the relatively small number and test-market nature of the
    restaurants, along with the periodic inclusion of restaurants
    reacquired from franchisees that are temporarily operated by the
    Company.

(g) The sales percentage change for the three and six months ended
    June 30, 2009 for Applebee's franchise and company-operated
    restaurants was impacted by the franchising of 103 company-operated
    restaurants during 2008 and seven company-operated restaurants in
    2009.

(h) Sales at IHOP area license restaurants were $55.0 million and $54.4
    million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009,
    respectively, and $115.1 million and $110.9 million for the six
    months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
