Saed Mohseni, Chief Executive Officer and President, said, "Our quarterly revenues fell short of our expectations and this in turn resulted in margin erosion and lower EPS compared to the year ago period. We have also seen increased competitive activity in select markets. While we have planned a number of marketing initiatives to mitigate some of these headwinds, it is clear our guests have shifted their spending priorities. Therefore, while we remain enthusiastic about our long term growth objectives, we are taking a more conservative view of our business outlook."
