Third Quarter 2012 Results:

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, total revenue increased to $1.77 million, compared to total revenue of ($5,726) in the third quarter of 2011. This growth is attributable to gaining majority ownership in our first three South African restaurants on September 30, 2011, at which point we began consolidating our South African Hooters operations, effective October 1, 2011. This growth is also attributable to opening our Emperor's Palace, South Africa and Budapest, Hungary locations in 2012, where our Emperor's Palace continues to be a success and profitable. Also, The Company's Campbelltown, Australia location, where Chanticleer owns 49%, became profitable during the third quarter, generating $68,000 in net income. 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, total revenue increased to $4.9 million as compared to $468,417 in the same period last year, due to consolidating our South African operations, effective October 1, 2011 and opening our Emperor's Palace, South Africa and Budapest, Hungary locations in 2012.

The Company reported a net loss of $739,766 or $0.20 per share and a net loss of $495,756 or $0.40 per share during the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively. The increase in net loss is due to increased expenses associated with the consolidation of our South African restaurant operations, effective October of 2011 and our continued expansion of our international footprint, where during the third quarter, the Company incurred approximately $126,000 in one-time expenses related to opening the Hooters Budapest location. The Company closed the September Quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $1.7 million.

The independent investigation by the Company's Audit Committee is nearing completion. No other findings of misconduct have been identified that have not previously been publicly disclosed. However, the independent investigation did identify certain weaknesses in internal controls and the Company is in the process of implementing a remediation plan.

The Company is continuing to provide the NASDAQ Staff with all information requested in a timely manner. However, at this time we are not able to provide guidance as to when trading will resume. The Company intends to continue to inform investors of any material developments in a timely manner.
