"I am very pleased with our financial results for the third fiscal quarter," stated Richard W. Akam, Chief Executive Officer of ARC Group.  "Our record revenue and second consecutive quarter of net income are a direct reflection of our company's continued focus on revenue generation and cost containment.  These results, along with the Company's minimal debt and continued growth in stockholders' equity, are remarkable achievements that position us well for 2016."

Outlook

"We expect our financial results for Q4 2015 to remain strong," stated Akam. "We have a total of three new restaurants in various stages of development that, when coupled with the four new restaurants already opened during 2015, will drive continued growth in our royalties during 2016.  We also expect to continue benefiting from the 2015 NFL and NCAA football seasons, the 2015-2016 NBA and NCAA basketball seasons, and several new advertising and promotional campaigns that will be implemented during the upcoming months."

Akam continued, "While we have been growing aggressively in Florida and Georgia, we are actively evaluating locations in other states.  Additionally, we are in ongoing discussions with larger operating groups that are interested in opening several restaurants within the southeastern US.  Each of these growth opportunities has the potential to benefit our performance during 2016."
