"Eight consecutive quarters of profitability should not go unnoticed. Our Pie Five and Pizza Inn brands are energized by strong sales and profitability, relatively stable store count and smart management of our cash," said Brandon Solano, Chief Executive Officer of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc.

Clint Fendley, Chief Financial Officer of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. further explained, "Our 20% total revenue increase was driven by strong same-store sales growth, relative unit count stability, and strong performance among new Pizza Inn units. These factors combined with strong cost controls yielded our eighth consecutive quarter of profitability. In the third quarter, we leveraged our strong cash position to extinguish our $1.6 million in outstanding Convertible Notes and continue to hold in excess of $7.2 million in cash."

Solano also credited the success of the previous eight quarters to the Company's laser focus on its core products while challenging each brand to innovate. "Specifically, Pie Five saw strong results from the launch of Mike's Sticky Fingers Pizza and Pizza Inn's rollout of House Pan Pizza. Looking ahead, I am excited about our innovation pipeline with the recent launch of Pizza Inn's NYXL Pizza. It is a well-timed value play, especially with rising inflation that should directly impact our buffet-loving customers. We expect to continue our innovation pipeline to keep driving same-store sales. We are also updating our look, and in the coming months will open our first prototype, featuring a new buffet design," Solano concluded.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company's financial statements are prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). However, the Company also presents and discusses certain non-GAAP financial measures that it believes are useful to investors as measures of operating performance. Management may also use such non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the effectiveness of business strategies and for planning and budgeting purposes. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed as an alternative or substitute for its financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

The Company considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be important supplemental measures of operating performance that are commonly used by securities analysts, investors and other parties interested in our industry. The Company believes that EBITDA is helpful to investors in evaluating its results of operations without the impact of expenses affected by financing methods, accounting methods and the tax environment. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides additional useful information to investors by excluding non-operational or non-recurring expenses to provide a measure of operating performance that is more comparable from period to period. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for evaluating operating performance, assessing the effectiveness of business strategies, projecting future capital needs, budgeting and other planning purposes.

"EBITDA" represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, severance, gain/loss sale of assets, costs related to impairment and other lease charges, franchise default and closed store revenue/expense, and closed and non-operating store costs. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to net income is included with the accompanying financial statements.

These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations that involve numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Assumptions relating to these forward-looking statements involve judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions, regulatory framework and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond the control of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. Although the assumptions underlying these forward-looking statements are believed to be reasonable, any of the assumptions could be inaccurate and, therefore, there can be no assurance that any forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in these forward-looking statements, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation that the objectives and plans of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. will be achieved.
