We expect our organic growth to continue and we are actively evaluating additional acquisitions where we can leverage our franchising, marketing, operational, logistics and financial expertise across brands. We are also making progress with our pending acquisition of Tilted Kilt. Although this transaction has taken longer than anticipated, the acquisition remains on track and we look forward to providing further updates in the near future."

Alex Andre, CFO of ARC Group, commented, "Once again we have achieved positive EBITDA and, as we continue to increase revenue, we expect to significantly enhance our profitability. We believe our acquisition growth strategy targeting growing and profitable businesses, as well as underperforming businesses that can be quickly turned around, will position us with a unique, scalable and diversified portfolio. I am excited to be a part of the ARC team to help support the Company in this growth phase."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company prepares its condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, this release also includes non-GAAP EBITDA for the periods presented. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the Company's core business operations, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not recognized measures for financial statement presentation under U.S. GAAP and do not have standardized meanings. Accordingly, they may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures. Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

For the purposes of this press release, the following non-GAAP financial measures have the following meanings:

"EBITDA" means net loss plus depreciation expense, amortization expense and interest expense and income taxes.

For further information, please refer to the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 14, 2019 and available online at www.sec.gov.
