SG&A expense for the first quarter increased by $1.6 million and was 14.5 percent of revenues as compared to 14.4 percent in the prior year quarter. Mark-to-market adjustments on investments supporting the company’s non-qualified retirement plans positively impacted SG&A by $1.3 million in the first quarter as compared to a positive impact of $3.2 million in last year’s first quarter, resulting in a year-over-year increase in SG&A of $1.9 million. The increase in SG&A was also due to higher incentive compensation, increased G&A related to Qdoba growth, and higher pension costs which were partially offset by the benefit of the company’s restructuring activities as well as lower advertising and overhead costs resulting from the Jack in the Box refranchising strategy.Impairment and other charges decreased $1.1 million in the quarter compared to a year ago primarily due to income of $2.1 million recognized in 2013 in connection with the resolution of two eminent domain matters involving Jack in the Box restaurants.
