SECAUCUS, N.J. -- April 29, 2013

Panasonic today announced that the Attune® drive-thru communications system is
now certified by CKE Restaurants, Inc. for use in Carl’s Jr.^® and Hardee’s^®
across the nation. Panasonic’s Attune has met the rigorous certification
standards set forth by CKE and is now available for franchisees to purchase.
Attune enhances customer satisfaction through improved speed of service and
order accuracy in the drive-thru.

“At CKE, we look for drive-thru solutions that enable clear communication
between employees and customers without interference,” said Tom Lindblom,
Chief Technology Officer, CKE Restaurants, Inc. “Based on our relationship
with Panasonic as an approved vendor and the testing of the Attune, we feel
confident it will provide our restaurants reliable and quality wireless
headsets to deliver the best drive-thru experience for customers.”

Attune operates on the restricted 1.9 GHz band with DECT voice technology for
clear, reliable, interference-free communication. It is available in two
models, all-in-one (AIO) and belt pack, both engineered for durability in
rigorous quick-service restaurant environments. The AIO headset is the most
rugged headband in the industry, allowing for 360 degrees of bending without
breakage. The reliability of Attune saves Panasonic customers thousands of
dollars in repair costs over the life of the headset.
