General and administrative expenses were $16.8 million at 2.9% of system-wide sales, compared to $14.6 million at 2.9% of system-wide sales last year. The $2.2 million increase was primarily attributable to an increase in domestic franchisee restaurant support services, international franchise development and marketing support, an increase in performance-based incentive compensation expense and other general and administrative expenses, net.
Through the end of the second quarter, Operating EBITDA was $34.1 million at 31.5% of total revenues, compared to $28.6 million at 31.0% of total revenues in 2012. The 50 basis point increase was primarily a result of strong same-store sales, one-time franchise fees associated with the conversion of the restaurants in Minnesota and California acquired in 2012 and higher restaurant operating profit at Company-operated restaurants. The Company’s Operating EBITDA margin remains among the highest in the QSR industry. Operating EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP measure of performance.
