The Announcement

The Company announced that it intends to use the net proceeds of the rights offering to repay indebtedness, fund continued restaurant development activity, and deliver working capital for general corporate purposes. The rights offering further includes an over-subscription right entitling shareholders who exercise all of their basic subscription rights to purchase additional shares of the common stock not purchased by other rights holders.

RAVE Restaurants is a Dallas-based group, which owns, operates and franchises more than 300 Pie Five Pizza Co., and Pizza Inn restaurants domestically and internationally. Prior to the announcement, on December 22, 2016, RAVE Restaurants reported that its Board of Directors had approved a capital raise by way of a registered rights offering where the proposed amount was $3 million. In anticipation of the rights offering, the Company received $1 million of short-term funding from its largest shareholder, NewCastle Partners, L.P., through a promissory note that it is expected to be repaid with proceeds from the rights offering.

Company Growth Prospects

On May 10, 2017, RAVE Restaurant Group reported its Q3 FY17 results for the period ended March 26, 2017. The Company reported total consolidated revenue to decline 7.7% to $14.1 million in Q3 FY17 from $15.3 million in Q3 FY16. The Company's subsidiary, Pie Five's comparable store retail sales also fell 15.8% in Q3 FY17 YOY. Pizza Inn, on the other hand, reported a minimal surge of 0.1% in the comparable store sales in Q3 FY17 from Q3 FY16. The Company's net loss of $2.0 million for the three-month period ended March 26, 2017, was $0.7 million higher than the Q3 FY16 loss.

RAVE Restaurants stated that the $2.0 million loss was attributable to a $0.3 million loss on sale of assets in the Q3 FY17, related equipment disposals at closed stores, along with executive recruiting fees. Also, the YTD increase in net loss according to the Company was due to increased impairments and other lease charges of $5.2 million and $1.0 million of losses from the sale of assets. RAVE Restaurants also attributed the decreased comparable store retail sales to increased competition within the fast-casual segment and general industry softness, which has contributed to weakened trends within the Pie Five System.

The Company opened a total of 5 new franchised Pie Five restaurants, while 9 franchised and 9 Company restaurants were closed.
