    an organic basis. The reported results reflect double-digit comparable

  *Systemwide comparable sales increased by 11.6% year-over-year, driven by
    solid performances of the Company’s largest contributing countries.
  *Adjusted EBITDA remained stable at $67.4 million. Excluding currency
    translation and special items, Adjusted EBITDA grew 18.2% in comparison
    with 2Q12.
  *The Company reported net income of $8.8 million compared to $12.1 million
    the previous-year due primarily to lower operating results and higher
    foreign exchange losses resulting from currency depreciation.

“The achievement of double-digit comparable sales and organic revenue growth,

Venezuela, underscores our brand strength, compelling marketing calendar, and
management’s ability to leverage its deep experience so that it may deliver
strong results in varying economic environments.”

(2Q13 = 2Q12 + Special items + Currency translation + Organic growth) Please

Arcos Dorados’ second quarter revenues increased by 9.4% to $989.2 million, as
organic revenue growth of 16.9% was mainly offset by depreciation of local
currencies. Organic revenues were driven by systemwide comparable sales growth
of 11.6% and backed by the strong performance of marketing activities across
the region. The net addition of 113 restaurants during the last 12-month
period contributed $49.5 million in constant currency to revenues. Brazil and
SLAD were the primary contributors to revenue growth, reporting double-digit
increases in organic revenues and surpassing relevant consumer indicators.

Systemwide comparable sales growth was mainly driven by average check growth.
There is a strong marketing calendar in place for 2013, and in the second
quarter, the Company focused on highly differentiated activities, new product
and flavor introductions such as Quarter Pounder varieties and McFlurry
Suflair Dark in Brazil was a success.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $67.4 million, in line with the
$67.3 million generated in the year-ago period. Adjusting for special items
and currency impact, organic Adjusted EBITDA grew by 18.2%, reflecting strong
comparable sales and contributions from new stores, along with improvements in
food & paper and G&A as a percentage of sales. However, they were partially
offset by increases in payroll as a percentage of sales.

Special items in both periods consisted of higher corporate G&A of $7.8
million explained by a net charge of $1.5 million in 2Q13 and a gain of $6.3
million in 2Q12 related to the CAD incentive plan. Furthermore, the Company
recognized an additional year-over-year benefit in 2Q13 of $1.5 million
related to the additional temporary royalty waiver from McDonald’s Corporation
for Venezuela (approved in April 2013).

The Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of total revenues decreased by 62
basis points to 6.8% compared to the year-ago period. Margins in the Company’s
largest divisions, Brazil and SLAD, improved mainly due to strong comparable
sales in the quarter. However, these gains were offset by challenging
macroeconomic conditions in certain countries within NOLAD as well as the
Caribbean Division.

Net income attributable to the Company was $8.8 million in the second quarter
of 2013, compared to $12.1 million in the same period of 2012. The result
reflects lower operating results, higher foreign exchange charges and
increased interest expense recognized in the quarter, which was partially
offset by a decline in income taxes.

Non-operating Results

Non-operating results for the quarter reflected (i) an 11.8% increase in
overall funding costs (interest and derivative instruments expenses), mainly
due to higher debt levels, and partially offset by the positive impact of the
Brazilian devaluation over Real-denominated debt and (ii) higher foreign
currency exchange losses mainly resulting from the impact of currency
devaluation on intercompany loans.

Income tax expense for the quarter totaled $0.6 million, compared to $7.1
million in the year-ago period. The effective tax rate for the 2Q13 is the
consequence of income tax provision based on the first six months’ results and
which includes the negative impact on 1Q13 results of the official devaluation
of the Venezuelan currency.

The Company reported basic earnings per share (EPS) of $0.04 in the second
quarter of 2013, compared to $0.06 in the previous corresponding period. Total
weighted average shares for 2Q13 were 209,748,728 as compared to 209,529,412
in 2Q12, reflecting the issuance of shares as a result of the partial vesting
of restricted share units.

Analysis by Division:

Beginning January 2013, the Company reorganized its SLAD as well as its
Caribbean division. The Venezuela and Colombia operations are now part of the
Caribbean division. For comparison purposes, prior year information reflects
these changes.

Brazil revenues grew by 9.4%, while excluding currency movements, organic
revenues grew 15.6%. Systemwide comparable sales growth of 10.0% in the
quarter was driven by increased average check over the past twelve months,
along with higher guest counts stemming from strong marketing activities.
These efforts drove increased traffic in the quarter and helped mitigate a
challenging consumer environment, including the impact of street
demonstrations in the second half of June.

The net addition of 69 restaurants during the last 12-month period contributed
$23.6 million to revenues in constant currency during the quarter. The
openings brought the restaurant count to a total of 746.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by 14.1% in the second quarter of 2013. Organic
Adjusted EBITDA grew 20.5% and resulted in a 48 basis point improvement in the
EBITDA margin in the quarter. The margin expansion was driven by revenue
growth, lower food & paper costs as a percentage of sales and lower occupancy
and other operating expenses as a percentage of sales. These factors were
partly offset by higher payroll as a percentage of sales, mainly due to (i)
initial burden of the migration to fixed schedule, but which is expected to
stabilize going forward, along with (ii) higher employee benefits.

NOLAD’s (Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica) revenues grew by 6.9% or 2.1% on an
organic basis, year-over-year. Systemwide comparable sales decreased by 4.2%
in the quarter, mainly due to the Easter holiday shift in Mexico along with
increased competition in Costa Rica. The net addition of 10 restaurants during
the last 12-month period contributed $5.3 million to revenues in constant

Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $4.9 million from $7.4 million in the previous
corresponding period. While food & paper costs as a percentage of sales
declined in the quarter, margins were negatively impacted by lower traffic
volumes, primarily affecting payroll costs as well as occupancy and other
operating expenses. As a result, the Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 4.8%.

SLAD’s (Argentina, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, and Uruguay) revenues grew by 14.3%
and 27.9% on an organic basis compared to the second quarter of 2012. Revenue
growth was driven by the Argentine operations as consumption and traffic grew,
favorably impacted by the strong performance of marketing activities while
average check continued to grow in line with inflation. As a result,
systemwide comparable sales for the division increased 21.4% in the quarter.
The net addition of 23 restaurants during the last 12-month period contributed
$14.0 million to revenues in constant currency in the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by 26.1% or 44.8% on an organic basis. Leverage in
most operating costs and expenses as a result of increased revenues resulted
in a 101 basis point year-over-year improvement in the Adjusted EBITDA margin
to 10.7%.

The Caribbean division (Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Martinique,
Guadeloupe, Aruba, Curaçao, French Guiana, Trinidad & Tobago, and the US
Virgin Islands of St. Thomas and St. Croix) reported revenue growth of 5.3%.
Excluding currency variations principally related to the devaluation of the
Venezuelan Bolivar, organic revenues increased by 15.2% compared to the 2Q12.
Systemwide comparable sales grew 14.6%. Despite challenging consumer
conditions, the performance of products such as McMenu in Venezuela and
Chicken McBites in Puerto Rico helped mitigate traffic declines. The net
addition of 11 restaurants during the last 12-month period contributed $6.5
million to revenues in constant currency during the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA declined by 13.2% and amounted to $11.2 million in 2Q13. The
Company recognized a royalty waiver from McDonald’s Corporation for Venezuela
of $2.8 million in the 2Q13 (including $0.8 million of retroactive adjustment
as a result of an increase in the full year amount for 2013 from $5 million to
$8 million), versus $1.3 million recognized in the 2Q12. On an organic basis,
Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 15.6% compared to one year ago, reflecting higher
cost of dollar-denominated inputs in Venezuela as well as soft performance in
Colombia. These factors more than offset revenue growth, and improved payroll
and G&A as a percentage of sales for the division. As a result, the Adjusted
EBITDA margin decreased by 124 basis points to 5.8%.

Gross openings of 130 restaurants over the twelve month period ended June 30,
2013, resulted in a total of 1,971 restaurants, 2,057 Dessert Centers, and 340
McCafe’s. The Company’s openings plan remains on-track, and more than 90% of
full year 2013 openings were secured as of period-end.

Balance Sheet & Cash Flow Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents were $128.8 million at June 30, 2013. The Company’s
total financial debt (including derivative instruments) was $691.1 million.
Net debt was $562.3 million and the Net Debt/Adjusted EBITDA ratio was 1.7x at
June 30, 2013.

Cash generated by operating activities was $18.6 million in the second quarter
of 2013. During the quarter, capital expenditures amounted to $49.4 million.

First Half 2013

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company’s revenues grew by 7.7%
(16.3% on an organic basis) to $1,966.1 million. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA
reached $136.1 million, a decrease of 6.4% compared to the first half of 2012.
On an organic basis, Adjusted EBITDA increased by 9.2%, driven by growth in
Brazil and SLAD. Revenue growth together with improved G&A as a percentage of
sales was partially offset mainly by currency devaluation impact over
dollar-denominated costs, particularly in Venezuela, as well as payroll
pressure. Year-to-date consolidated net income amounted to $2.2 million,
compared with $37.5 million in the first half of last year, mainly explained
by lower operating results and foreign exchange losses (generated by the
official devaluation of Venezuela’s currency in February of 2013 as well as by
the impact of the depreciation of local currencies on intercompany loans)
partially offset by lower income taxes. The effective tax rate for the first
six months of the year was 74.8% and is also impacted by the aforementioned
devaluation in Venezuela. Additionally, capital expenditures amounted to $86.3
million for the period.

Systemwide comparable sales growth refers to the change, measured in constant
currency, in our Company-operated and franchised restaurant sales in one
period from a comparable period for restaurants that have been open for
thirteen months or longer. While sales by our franchisees are not recorded as
revenues by us, we believe the information is important in understanding our
financial performance because these sales are the basis on which we calculate
and record franchised revenues, and are indicative of the financial health of
our franchisee base.

Constant currency basis refers to amounts calculated using the same exchange
rate over the periods under comparison to remove the effects of currency
fluctuations from this trend analysis.

Organic: To better discern underlying business trends, this release uses
non-GAAP financial measures that segregate year-over-year growth into three
categories: (i) currency translation, (ii) special items and (iii) organic
growth. (i) Currency translation reflects the impact on growth of the
appreciation or depreciation of the local currencies in which we conduct our
business against the US dollar (the currency in which our financial statements
are prepared). (ii) Special items include the impact of events that management
does not consider part of the underlying performance of the business. (iii)
Organic growth reflects the underlying growth of the business excluding the
effect from currency translation and special items.
