A reconciliation of EBITDA on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is included in the table below entitled 'Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures'.

Seenu G. Kasturi, CEO of ARC Group, stated, 'I am pleased to report that our revenue was $4 million for the third quarter of 2019, an increase of 71% over the same period last year which reflects organic growth at Dick's Wings and sales generated through the Fat Patty's restaurants that we acquired in August 2018. In addition to our strong top-line growth, we continue to generate positive cash flow from operations. Although our operating expenses increased, this reflects our significant investment in the business to support the next phase of growth, including our recent acquisition of WingHouse.'

'Last month, we announced that we had acquired the WingHouse Bar & Grill® restaurant concept in Florida, providing us with 24 restaurants that generated more than $60.6 million in revenue and $3.5 million of cash flow from operating activities during 2018,' added Alex Andre, CFO and General Counsel of ARC Group. 'Importantly, this acquisition increases our combined annualized revenue run rate to over $70 million and will enable us to leverage our franchising, marketing, operational, logistics and financial expertise to drive further sales growth and cash flow across all of our brands. Overall, we believe we have built a highly scalable organization, and as we continue to drive sales, we expect to generate solid margin improvement and improved profitability.'

Complete financial results are available in the Company's Form 10-Q, which has been filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission and is available at www.sec.gov.

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 adjusted loss from operations and 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:

'Adjusted loss from operations' means loss from operations plus depreciation expense, amortization expense, stock based compensation expense and gain from insurance recoveries on impaired fixed assets.

'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 November 14, 2019 and available online at www.sec.gov.
