Our EPS growth on adjusted net income of 35.6% was the result of continued hard work to bring our 'Your World Kitchen' positioning to life within our restaurants while expanding the brand through the opening of 13 additional restaurants system-wide. Moreover, the execution of our initial public offering on July 2 nd has allowed us to pay off nearly all of our outstanding debt, giving us the capital flexibility to pursue our strategy of developing a 'Category of One' in the eating and drinking out space."

Initial Public Offering

On July 2, 2013, we completed our initial public offering ("IPO") of our Class A common stock at $18.00 per share. We issued 6,160,714 shares, including 803,571 shares sold to the underwriters pursuant to their over-allotment option. After underwriter discounts and commissions and offering expenses, net proceeds from the offering were $100.2 million. These proceeds were used to repay all but $0.2 million of our outstanding debt as of July 2, 2013.
