Total revenue for the third quarter 2012 was R$60.5 million in line with R$60.4 million in the third quarter 2011, reflecting a reduction owned and operated stores in line with the Company’s strategy to increase the focus on franchise operations.

Net restaurant sales for company-owned retail outlets declined 5.9% year-over-year to R$43.3 million in the third quarter 2012, reflecting a decrease in net revenues for the Company’s Bob’s and Doggis brand, which was partially offset by increases in net revenues across the Company’s KFC and Pizza Hut brands.

Financial Condition As of September 30, 2012, Brazil Fast Food had R$28.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, up from R$21.4 million as of December 31, 2011. Working capital was R$22.8million, as compared to R$16.9 million as of the end of 2011. Total shareholders' equity as of September 30, 2012 was R$53.8 million, compared to R$41.9 million at the end of 2011. In the first nine months of 2012, Brazil Fast Food generated net cash flow from operating activities of R$14.7 million, representing an increase of 33.8%, from R$11.0 million for the comparable period in 2011. The Company used R$12.9 million in cash towards investment in property and equipment to improve the Company's retail operations, mainly setting up new owned-and-operated KFC and Pizza Hut stores, and the acquisition of the Yoggi do Brasil Ltda (“Yoggi”) franchise network of frozen yogurt in Brazil. Business Outlook “We expect to see continued positive trends in the business in our seasonally strong fourth quarter, as we execute our strategy to grow the number of franchised outlets and pursue operational efficiencies so as to achieve profitable operations across each of our brands. We have recently reduced the number of franchises for the Yoggi brand, due to slowing consumer demand for frozen yogurt, but we are working to modify the store concept and are optimistic about its longer-term potential. We believe that quick service restaurant sector remains very underpenetrated in Brazil and our goal is to develop leading brands that cater to the tastes of modern Brazilian consumer so as to lead the growth of the industry,” concluded Mr. Bomeny.

Our management believes EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating companies in our industry. In addition, our management believes that EBITDA is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry because the calculation of EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of financing and income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending, which items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. As a result, our management uses EBITDA as a measure to evaluate the performance of our business. However, EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, income from operations and net income, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. Not all companies use identical calculations, and our presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as a tax and debt service payments.
