Company-wide same store sales decreased 4.6% for the three-month period ended December 29, 2012 compared to the same three month period last year. This decrease was primarily the result of the impact of Hurricane Sandy on our business in the Northeast.

Income from continuing operations for the three-month period ended December 29, 2012 was $8,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, as compared to $1,148,000, or $0.34 per basic ($0.33 per diluted share), for the same three-month period last year. Included in the Company’s income from continuing operations for the three-month period ended December 29, 2012 are operating losses of $565,000 related to our new restaurant in New York, Clyde Frazier’s Wine and Dine, which opened in March 2012, and losses in the amount of $256,000 related to the permanent closure of two properties in New York as a result of flooding from Hurricane Sandy.
