Continuing Operations – Operating Results:

“The second quarter saw growth of 7.7% in system-wide same-store sales, while adjusted EBITDA increased 21%,” said Lori Flees, president & CEO. “We delivered network growth of 38 net store additions this quarter, 14 of which came from our franchise partners.”

Flees continued, “We also repurchased $40 million of shares in the second quarter which completes the $1.6 billion share repurchase authorization. This fulfills our commitment to return a substantial amount of the net proceeds from the sale of the Global Products business to shareholders.”

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

  • Year-to-date continuing operations cash flow from operations of $92 million and free cash flow of $5 million

  • Included in net interest expense is income of $4 million and $12 million earned during the quarter and year-to-date, respectively on invested net proceeds from the sale of the Global Products business

Outlook

“In the first half of the year, we have delivered strong profit growth thanks to the hard work of our team and franchise partners. Our team’s commitment to employee training and retention has allowed us to continue to drive the core business toward its full potential through a focus on improving delivery of additional services and management of labor costs,” Flees added. “With the first half of the year behind us, we continue to expect strong year-over-year performance despite lapping a strong second half of fiscal year 2023. Accordingly, we are updating our guidance to narrow the range across a few key metrics.”
