Despite the consumer and inflationary challenges, we achieved our third consecutive year of positive same-store sales growth and another year of increased store level profitability. In addition, our strong balance sheet and healthy cash flows enabled us to return $54 million of excess capital to shareholders through share repurchases and quarterly dividend payments. While we anticipate further commodity inflation in 2013, we believe our brand is well-positioned for future growth and feel confident about increasing our new restaurant growth for the third consecutive year.”
