The Company maintains its fiscal year 2012 guidance for the following:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company provides certain supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to its investors as a complement to the most comparable GAAP measures. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP adjusted operating profit is net income/loss. An explanation and reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to GAAP information is set forth below. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP measures to its investors, in addition to corresponding GAAP income statement measures, provides investors the benefit of viewing the Company's performance using the same financial metrics that the management team uses in making many key decisions and understanding how the Company's core business operations may perform and may look in the future. The Company’s core business operations comprise company-owned and franchise-operated stores and consumer packaged goods (CPG) licensing operations. The Company believes its core business performance represents the Company's on-going performance in the ordinary course of its operations. Management excludes from the Company’s core business performance those items, such as impairment charges, income taxes, restructuring and severance programs and costs relating to specific major projects which are non-routine, expenses or income from certain legal actions, settlements and related costs, general and administrative expense, including non-cash compensation related to stock and options. Management does not believe these items, including non-cash items, are reflective of the Company's ongoing core operations and accordingly excludes those items from non-GAAP adjusted operating profit and non-GAAP adjusted operating profit margin. Additionally, each non-GAAP measure has historically been presented by the Company as a complement to its most comparable GAAP measure, and the Company believes that the continuation of this practice increases the consistency and comparability of the Company's earnings releases. The non-GAAP adjustments are discussed further below.
Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an
alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in
(1) Comparable store sales are calculated using sales of
(2) Non-GAAP adjusted operating profit is calculated as net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding the items described below and as specifically identified in the non-GAAP reconciliation schedules set forth below. Non-GAAP adjusted operating profit margin is calculated as non-GAAP adjusted operating profit as a percentage of GAAP total revenue. The Company evaluates its performance using non-GAAP adjusted operating profit margin to assess the Company's historical and prospective operating financial performance, as well as its core operating performance relative to its competitors. Specifically, management uses these non-GAAP measures to further understand the Company's core business operating performance. The Company believes its core business operating performance represents the Company's on-going performance in the ordinary course of its core operations. Accordingly, the Company excludes from its core operating performance those items whose impact are not reflective of its core operations such as (a) interest income, (b) interest expense, (c) income taxes, (d) depreciation and amortization, (e) impairment of long-lived assets, (f) other operating, net, and (g) general and administrative expenses. The definition of adjusted operating profit margin is the same definition previously used by the Company to define operating profit margin in its 2011 outlook.
