The IEO segment of the restaurant industry, although largely mature in our major markets, is highly fragmented and competitive. The IEO segment has been contracting in many markets, including some major markets, due to unfavorable economic conditions, and this may continue.
Some of the reasons restaurants may be temporarily closed include reimaging or remodeling, rebuilding, road construction and natural disasters. Systemwide sales include sales at all restaurants, whether operated by the Company or by franchisees. Our ability to remain a relevant and trusted brand and to increase sales and profits depends largely on how well we execute the Plan to Win.
Our expectations or the underlying assumptions may change or not be realized, and you should not rely unduly on forward-looking statements. Initiatives we undertake may not have universal appeal among different segments of our customer base and can drive unanticipated changes in guest counts and customer perceptions.
Comparable sales are driven by changes in guest counts and average check, which is affected by changes in pricing and product mix. Comparable sales exclude the impact of currency translation and sales from hyper-inflationary markets currently only Venezuela.

These risks can have an impact both in the near- and long-term and are reflected in the following considerations and factors that we believe are most likely to affect our performance.
We have the added challenge of the cultural, economic and regulatory differences that exist within and among the more than countries where we operate. The most important of these is whether we can remain relevant to our customers and a brand they trust.
Management reviews the increase or decrease in comparable sales and comparable guest counts compared with the same period in the prior year to assess business trends.
A link to the live webcast will be available at www. Information in constant currency is calculated by translating current year results at prior year average exchange rates. Management believes that these exclusions more accurately reflect the underlying business trends.
