Description

  
 
Other Options

·         While I think the company is fairly levered on a lease-adjusted basis, it is still controlled by Advent and they could be willing to use the balance sheet more aggressively to repurchase shares

·         The Blended royalty rate for their franchisees is still relatively low (below 4%); this could be a longer-term lever for earnings

·         Refranchising company-operated stores

 

 

Risks

·         Build-to-suit leasing strategy (poorly chosen locations)

·         Change in consumer trends towards healthier options

·         Increased wage inflation

·         Continued competitive pressures

·         Lack of attractive locations in adjacent markets

·         Recession causing adjacent-market unit volumes to deteriorate

·         Rising interest rates (floating-rate debt)

I do not hold a position with the issuer such as employment, directorship, or consultancy.
I and/or others I advise hold a material investment in the issuer's securities.
