FY Q1 results. The company reported Q1 revenue of $227.4 million, 4.7% below our estimate of $238.5 million. The modest revenue miss was attributed to experimenting with various mid-week promotional pricing, which did not go well, before pivoting to a more cost effective pricing strategy. Adj. EBITDA in Q1 was $52.1 million, approximately 16% below our estimate of $62 million. While operating results were a tad softer, management gained valuable knowledge about its customer base.

2024 Outlook. Management views fiscal 2024 as a year of investment for more robust top and bottom line growth in fiscal 2025. Notably, for full fiscal year 2024, the company has allocated roughly $160 million for acquisitions, $40 million for new builds, and $75 million for conversions. In our view, the aggressive expansion efforts should help the company continue its impressive revenue growth trajectory.
