Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains statements about future events and expectations that constitute forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements can generally be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "plan," "seek," "will," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "believe" or the negative thereof or similar terminology. These statements are based on management's beliefs, assumptions and expectations of our future financial and operating performance and growth plans, taking into account the information currently available. These statements are not statements of historical fact. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from the expectations of future results we express or imply in any forward-looking statements and you should not place undue reliance on such statements. Please refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 28, 2013, and other reports that we have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, for a discussion of risk factors that may contribute to these differences. Any forward-looking information presented herein is made only as of the date of this supplemental report, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information to reflect changes in assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release also contains non-GAAP financial measures such as EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDAR. The Company believes that these measures, together with reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measure, are helpful to both management and investors in understanding and analyzing financial performance. However, the Company's non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures.

To the extent we discuss any non-GAAP financial measures on the earnings call, a reconciliation of each measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is available in this press release. In addition, the Current Report on Form 8-K furnished to the SEC concurrent with the issuance of this press release includes a more detailed description of each of these non-GAAP financial measures, together with a discussion of the usefulness and purpose of such measures.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR.
