Highlights of i9 Sports’ Item 19 Financial Performance Representations (2012 FDD) – Part 2
Part II – Same Unit Revenue Growth
- The following section details the yearly revenue growth of “same units” (whether that unit is operated by the franchisor or one of its franchisees) in the 2009, 2010, and 2011 calendar years. In order for the total revenue of an i9 Sports Franchise to be included in a given calendar year’s calculation of revenue growth, that i9 Sports Franchise must have been open and operating that entire calendar year and the entire preceding calendar year.
- The figures below also exclude any i9 Sports Franchises that: (i) offered Adult Sports; or (ii) were not open and operating at any time from January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2011.
- The purpose of this measurement is to reflect the true organic growth of the franchise network from year to year, without the revenue lift generated by new franchise units.
- Revenue Growth 2009: 8.5%
- Revenue Growth 2010: 11.6%
- Revenue Growth 2011: 19.5%

- The information presented is for the period from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010 (the “Measurement Period”).
