Analysis of Results:

Investments held through investment partnerships affect our reported quarterly earnings based on their carrying value. We do not regard the quarterly or annual fluctuations in the partnerships' carrying values to be meaningful. Therefore, we believe our operating businesses are best analyzed before the impact of investment gains/losses. As a consequence, in the preceding table we separate earnings of our operating businesses from our investment gains/losses.

Furthermore, in the fiscal second quarter of 2014, Biglari Holdings contributed securities to an investment partnership and recognized a non-cash pre-tax gain of $29.5 million. We do not find the gain to be meaningful from an economic perspective. The transaction had no material effect on our consolidated shareholders' equity because the gain included in earnings was accompanied by a corresponding reduction in unrealized investment gains included in a separate component of shareholders' equity.
