(1)

Comparable sales growth and system-wide sales growth are calculated on a constant currency basis and include sales at franchise restaurants and company-owned restaurants.

(2)

PLK figures are shown for informational purposes only. Comparable sales growth is for the period from December 26, 2016 through March 27, 2017 for the current period, and from December 28, 2015 through April 17, 2016 for the comparative period. Net restaurant growth is for the period from April 17, 2016 through March 27, 2017 for the current period, and from April 19, 2015 through April 17, 2016 for the comparative period. Restaurant count is as of March 27, 2017 for the current period, and as of April 17, 2016 for the comparative period, inclusive of temporary closures.

(3)

Commencing in the first quarter of 2017, we are presenting net restaurant growth on a percentage basis, reflecting the net increase in restaurant count (openings, net of closures) over a trailing twelve month period, divided by the restaurant count at the beginning of the trailing twelve month period. This presentation has been applied retrospectively to the earliest period presented to provide period-to-period comparability. Previously, we presented net restaurant growth as the number of new restaurants opened, net of closures, during a stated period.

(4)

System-wide sales are driven by sales at franchised restaurants, as approximately 100% of current restaurants are franchised. We do not record franchise sales as revenues; however, our franchise revenues include royalties based on a percentage of franchise sales.

Note: As a result of the acquisition of PLK, we have three operating segments: Tim Hortons, Burger King, and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Our financial results and operational highlights will be disclosed based on these segments each quarter. Comparable sales growth will also be provided quarterly for each brand’s largest respective country of operations, which as of March 31, 2017 were TH Canada, BK US, and PLK US. Country-level system restaurant counts will also be provided annually for a few of each brand’s largest markets.

Comparable sales growth at each of TH, BK, and PLK was relatively flat during the three months ended March 31, 2017, including an impact of approximately (1%) due to a leap day in the prior-year period. Improvement in net restaurant growth at TH and BK illustrates our acceleration of new restaurant development around the world, and contributed to system-wide sales growth for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

Consolidated Financial Highlights

PLK revenues and segment income for the period from the acquisition date of March 27, 2017 through March 31, 2017 were not material to our consolidated financial statements, and therefore are not included in our consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017. PLK revenues and segment income for this period will be included in our consolidated statement of operations for the three months ending June 30, 2017.

Total Revenues for the first quarter grew primarily as a result of system-wide sales growth at both TH and BK, along with favorable FX movements. Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders for the quarter was driven by growth in segment income, offset by non-recurring transaction costs as a result of the Popeyes acquisition.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter grew 6.8%, excluding the impact of FX movements, driven primarily by revenue growth.

Total Revenues for the quarter grew 11.5% (8.2% excluding the impact of FX movements) versus prior year, primarily as a result of system-wide sales growth.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter grew 12.5% (9.0% excluding the impact of FX movements) versus prior year, primarily as a result of Total Revenues growth.

For the first quarter of 2017, system-wide sales growth was driven by net restaurant growth of 5.1%, slightly offset by comparable sales growth of (0.1)%, which was primarily driven by a decline in US comparable sales growth of (2.2)% offset by growth in other markets.

Total Revenues for the quarter grew 2.4% (2.6% excluding the impact of FX movements) versus prior year, primarily as a result of system-wide sales growth.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter grew 3.9% (4.1% excluding the impact of FX movements) versus prior year, primarily as a result of Total Revenues growth.

Cash and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2017, total debt was $10.1 billion, and net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents of $0.9 billion) was $9.2 billion. These figures include the February 2017 Term Loan refinancing and the incremental debt incurred in connection with the Popeyes acquisition. On April 26, 2017, the RBI Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.19 per common share and Class B exchangeable limited partnership unit of Restaurant Brands International Limited Partnership for the second quarter of 2017. The dividend will be payable on July 6, 2017 to shareholders and unitholders of record at the close of business on May 15, 2017.

Memo: Basic earnings per common share is determined by dividing net income attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.

For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, diluted EPS of $0.21 and $0.21 per share, respectively, includes $50.2 million and $50.0 million of net income attributable to common shareholders and $48.5 million and $49.9 million of net income attributable to noncontrolling interests related to the Class B exchangeable limited partnership units of Restaurant Brands International Limited Partnership (“Partnership exchangeable units”), respectively.

The diluted earnings per share calculation assumes conversion of 100% of the Partnership exchangeable units to RBI common shares under the “if converted” method.

Key Operating Metrics

We evaluate our restaurants and assess our business based on the following operating metrics.

System-wide sales growth refers to the change in sales at all franchise and company-owned restaurants in one period from the same period in the prior year. Comparable sales growth refers to the change in restaurant sales in one period from the same prior year period for restaurants that have been open for thirteen months or longer for TH and BK and 65 weeks or longer for PLK. System-wide sales growth and comparable sales growth are measured on a constant currency basis, which means that results exclude the effect of foreign currency translation and are calculated by translating prior year results at current year monthly average exchange rates. We analyze key operating metrics on a constant currency basis as this helps identify underlying business trends, without distortion from the effects of currency movements.

System-wide sales represent sales at all franchise restaurants and company-owned restaurants. We do not record franchise sales as revenues; however, our franchise revenues include royalties based on a percentage of franchise sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

Below, we define the non-GAAP financial measures, provide a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), and discuss the reasons why we believe this information is useful to management and may be useful to investors. These measures do not have standardized meanings under GAAP and may differ from similarly captioned measures of other companies in our industry.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, RBI reports the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share (“Adjusted Diluted EPS”), Organic revenue growth and Organic Adjusted EBITDA growth. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in assessing our operating performance, as it provides them with the same tools that management uses to evaluate our performance and is responsive to questions we receive from both investors and analysts.  By disclosing these non-GAAP measures, we intend to provide investors with a consistent comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented.

EBITDA is defined as earnings (net income or loss) before interest, (gain) loss on early extinguishment of debt, taxes, and depreciation and amortization and is used by management to measure operating performance of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding the non-cash impact of share-based compensation and non-cash incentive compensation expense and (income) loss from equity method investments, net of cash distributions received from equity method investments, as well as other operating expenses (income), net. Other specifically identified costs associated with non-recurring projects are also excluded from Adjusted EBITDA, including PLK transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Popeyes and integration costs associated with the acquisition of Tim Hortons. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to measure operating performance of the business, excluding these non-cash and other specifically identified items that management believes are not relevant to management’s assessment of operating performance or the performance of an acquired business. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, also represents our measure of segment income for each of our three operating segments. PLK revenues and segment income for the period from the acquisition date of March 27, 2017 through March 31, 2017 was not material to our consolidated financial statements, and therefore, are not included in our consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017. PLK segment income for this period will be included in our consolidated statement of operations for the three months ending June 30, 2017.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income excluding (i) franchise agreement amortization, which is a non-cash expense arising as a result of acquisition accounting that may hinder the comparability of our operating results to our industry peers, (ii) amortization of deferred financing costs and original issue discount, a non-cash component of interest expense, and (gains) losses on early extinguishment of debt, which are non-cash charges that vary by the timing, terms and size of debt financing transactions, (iii) (income) loss from equity method investments, net of cash distributions received from equity method investments, (iv) other operating expenses (income), net, and (v) other specifically identified costs associated with non-recurring projects. Adjusted Net Income includes preferred share dividends.

Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by the number of diluted shares of RBI during the reporting period. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the business, excluding certain non-cash and other specifically identified items that management believes are not relevant to management’s assessment of operating performance or the performance of an acquired business.

Revenue growth and Adjusted EBITDA growth, on an organic basis, are non-GAAP measures that exclude the impact of FX movements. Management believes that organic growth is an important metric for measuring the operating performance of our business as it helps identify underlying business trends, without distortion from the impact of FX movements. We calculate the impact of FX movements by translating current year results at prior year monthly average exchange rates.
