Share:

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chanticleer Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:BURG) ("Chanticleer," or the "Company"), owner, operator and franchisor of multiple branded restaurants in the U.S. and abroad, today announced financial results for the period ended June 30, 2018.

Mike Pruitt, Chairman and CEO of Chanticleer, commented, "We're pleased to report that revenue trends strengthened across our brands over the past few months. In addition, as a result of the operational initiatives implemented in prior periods, our operating and overhead expenses improved resulting in positive Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and the first half.

"The capital raise in April significantly strengthens our balance sheet and positions the Company to complete construction of the Little Big Burger locations currently underway.

"Following the close of the quarter, we opened the Multnomah Village location in Portland and our franchisee opened the first Little Big Burger in Austin. As we speak, there are six more LBB locations underway and slated to open in the second half of the year. We are especially looking forward to the expected September opening of our LBB Cornelius N.C. with Denny Hamlin, in addition to opening our first unit in Seattle."

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Chanticleer Holdings, Inc. prepares its condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant EBITDA, which differ from the term EBITDA as it is commonly used. In addition to adjusting net income (loss) from continuing operations to exclude taxes, interest, and depreciation and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes pre-opening and closing costs for our restaurants, non-cash expenses, transaction and severance related expenses, change in fair value of derivative liability and other income and expenses.

In addition, Restaurant EBITDA also excludes management fee income, franchise revenue and general and administrative expenses. Adjusted EBITDA and restaurant EBITDA are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, adjusted EBITDA and restaurant EBITDA are used internally in planning and evaluating the company's operating performance and by the Company's creditors. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of these metrics offers investors, bankers and other stakeholders an additional view of the company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net loss or to net cash used in operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity. It may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the company's performance. A reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Restaurant EBITDA is included in the accompanying financial schedules.

For further information, please refer to Chanticleer Holdings Form 10-Q to be filed with the SEC on or about August 13, 2018, available online at www.sec.gov.
