Net income per diluted share, excluding debt extinguishment charges,is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe net income per diluted share,excluding debt extinguishment charges,provides additional insight into the strength of our operations and aids in the comparability of current- and prior- year results. 2 Partner drive-ins are those Sonic Drive-Ins in which we own a majority interest,typically at least 60%.

Sonic Drive-Ins feature signature menu items, offering made-when-you-order Extra-Long Chili Cheese Coneys, hamburgers, wraps and other sandwiches, hand-battered Onion Rings, Tater Tots and a full breakfast menu. We are known for our variety of Frozen Favorites ® treats and Fountain Favorites ® drinks, too, like Cherry Limeades, Slushes and Cream Pie Shakes, making Sonic Your Ultimate Drink Stop ® ....
