The total debt of the Company remains unchanged. The new interest rate on the

1.00%. The previous interest rate was LIBOR plus 3.00% with a LIBOR floor of
1.00%. The new interest rate for the senior secured revolving credit facility
is LIBOR plus 2.50% (previously LIBOR plus 3.0%). In addition, the Company has
extended the maturity of its senior secured credit facility from November 2017
to February 2020. The Company also extended the term of its $100 million
revolving credit facility through February 2018.

All other material provisions, including covenants under the existing Credit
Agreement, comprised of the senior secured term loan facility and the senior
secured revolving credit facility, remain unchanged.

As a result, the Company expects interest expense of $80.6 million in 2013.

"The strong credit market and high demand for Dunkin' Brands' term loan have
enabled us to lower our weighted average cost of debt. As a result, we plan to
reinvest $1.5 million in 2013 interest expense savings into the business, with
the remaining $3.4 million in interest expense savings going to our bottom
line," said Paul Carbone, Dunkin' Brands Chief Financial Officer. "As a
result, we now expect earnings per share of $1.50 to $1.53 in 2013."
