Comparable sales growth and system-wide sales growth are calculated on a constant currency basis and include sales at franchise restaurants and company-owned restaurants.

(2)

Restaurant count excludes 420 and 454 limited service kiosks as of June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. NRG excludes limited service kiosks for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. Commencing in the fourth quarter of 2015, we revised our presentation of restaurant counts to exclude limited service kiosks, with the revision applied retrospectively to the earliest period presented to provide period-to-period comparability.

(3)

System-wide sales are primarily driven by sales at franchise restaurants, as approximately 100% of current restaurants are franchised. We do not record franchise sales as revenue; however, our franchise revenues include royalties based on a percentage of franchise sales.

TH results for the three months ended June 30, 2015 have been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the final purchase price allocation for Tim Hortons.

(8)

Commencing in the first quarter of 2016, we revised our presentation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share to include share-based compensation and non-cash incentive compensation expense, with the revision applied retrospectively to the earliest period presented to provide period-to-period comparability.

 

RBI Total Revenues for the quarter were $1,040.2 million compared to $1,042.2 million in the prior year period primarily as a result of unfavorable FX movements, partially offset by system-wide sales growth at both TH and BK. On a GAAP basis, RBI reported Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders of $90.9 million in the second quarter, versus $11.0 million in the prior year, and Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.38, compared to $0.05 in the prior year, primarily due to the non-recurrence of one-time expenses arising from the 2015 debt refinancing, effective cost management, and the non-recurrence of one-time expenses arising from the Tim Hortons transaction. Adjusted EBITDA growth of 16.2%, excluding the impact of FX movements, was driven by organic growth at both brands combined with cost discipline.

BK experienced a 2.0% FX headwind to Total Revenues for the second quarter.

RESTAURANT BRANDS INTERNATIONAL INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Key Business Metrics

We evaluate our restaurants and assess our business based on the following operating metrics.

System-wide sales growth refers to the change in sales at all company-owned and franchise restaurants in one period from the same period in the prior year. Comparable sales growth refers to the change in restaurant sales in one period from the same prior year period for restaurants that have been open for thirteen months or longer. Company-owned restaurants refranchised during a quarterly period are included with franchise restaurants for the purpose of calculating comparable sales growth for the quarter. Comparable sales and sales growth are measured on a constant currency basis, which means that results exclude the effect of foreign currency translation and are calculated by translating prior year results at current year monthly average exchange rates. We analyze key operating metrics on a constant currency basis as this helps identify underlying business trends, without distortion from the effects of currency movements.

System-wide sales represent sales at all company-owned restaurants and franchise restaurants. We do not record franchise sales as revenues; however, our franchise revenues include royalties based on a percentage of franchise sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

Below, we define the non-GAAP financial measures, provide a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), and discuss the reasons that we believe this information is useful to management and may be useful to investors. These measures may differ from similarly captioned measures of other companies in our industry.

Non-GAAP Measures

To spplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, RBI reports the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share ("Adjusted Diluted EPS"), Organic revenue growth and Organic Adjusted EBITDA growth. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in assessing our operating performance, as it provides them with the same tools that management uses to evaluate our performance and is responsive to questions we receive from both investors and analysts.  By disclosing these non-GAAP measures, we intend to provide investors with a consistent comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented.

EBITDA is defined as earnings (net income or loss) before interest, (gain) loss on early extinguishment of debt, taxes, and depreciation and amortization and is used by management to measure operating performance of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding the non-cash impact of share-based compensation and non-cash incentive compensation expense and (income) loss from equity method investments, net of cash distributions received from equity method investments, as well as other operating expenses (income), net. Other specifically identified costs associated with non-recurring projects are also excluded from Adjusted EBITDA, including acquisition accounting impact on cost of sales, Tim Hortons transaction and restructuring costs and integration costs, each of which is associated with the acquisition of Tim Hortons. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to measure operating performance of the business, excluding these non-cash and other specifically identified items that management believes are not relevant to management's assessment of operating performance or the performance of an acquired business. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, also represents our measure of segment income.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income excluding (i) franchise agreement amortization, which is a non-cash expense arising as a result of acquisition accounting that may hinder the comparability of our operating results to our industry peers, (ii) amortization of deferred financing costs and original issue discount, a non-cash component of interest expense, and (gains) losses on early extinguishment of debt, which are non-cash charges that vary by the timing, terms and size of debt financing transactions, (iii) (income) loss from equity method investments, net of cash distributions received from equity method investments, (iv) other operating expenses (income), net, and (v) other specifically identified costs associated with non-recurring projects. Adjusted Net Income includes preferred share dividends.

Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by the number of diluted shares of RBI during the reporting period. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the business, excluding certain non-cash and other specifically identified items that management are not relevant to management's assessment of operating performance or the performance of an acquired business.

Revenue growth and Adjusted EBITDA growth, on an organic basis, are non-GAAP measures that exclude the impact of FX movements. Management believes that organic growth is an important metric for measuring the operating performance of our business as it excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. We calculate the impact of FX movements by translating current year results at prior year monthly average exchange rates.
