"We continue to work through challenges presented by the global health crisis, but we will not be sidelined by the pandemic and are resolute in repositioning RAVE for long-term success," said Brandon Solano, Chief Executive Officer of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc.  "Safety for our customers remains our top priority and our first quarter results demonstrate that the coordinated response from our franchisees and restaurant support team continues to drive traffic and incremental sales despite operating challenges."

"At Pizza Inn, we created the Contactless Buffet To-Go to maximize value and variety for guests and to lower the impact of reduced foot traffic," Solano said.  "We recently brought back the Contactless Buffett To-Go with three new value-oriented options and along with our New Right-Way Buffet, we are seeing impressive results in driving traffic and ticket average."

"At Pie Five, we are continuing to test menu upgrades and look forward to rolling out several new options soon," said Solano.  "We are also continuing to leverage the Circle of Crust rewards program and are seeing a steady return in traffic along with positive sales trends with third-party delivery utilization."

"Income before taxes of $78 thousand is an encouraging start for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and demonstrates our commitment to controlling costs amid revenue declines," said Clint Fendley, Vice President of Finance of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc.   "RAVE's cash balance of $2.9 million at September 27, 2020, coupled with $3.8 million of gross proceeds from sales of common stock subsequent to the first quarter, reinforces our position as we continue to confront near-term uncertainty in our industry."  

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, gain/loss sale of assets, costs related to impairment, closed and non-operating store costs. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to net income is included with the accompanying financial statements.
