Oct 29 (Reuters) - DineEquity Inc, the owner of Applebee’s and IHOP restaurants, reported a better-than-expected adjusted quarterly profit as costs nearly halved due to franchising.

Excluding items, the company earned $1.10 per share, beating the average analyst estimate of 92 cents, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Revenue dropped 25 percent at $161.3 million.

Net income fell to $18.7 million, or 97 cents per share, from $60.6 million, or $3.14 per share, a year earlier.
