Explanatory Notes for Part I – Average and Median Annual Gross Revenue
- The chart below presents the Average Annual Gross Revenue and Median Annual Gross Revenue for all Reporting Franchisees during the Measurement Period.
- “Gross Revenue” is defined as the total of all sales invoices or other items or services billed to the customer for all “completed sales” less any discounts during the Measurement Period. Sales of products and services are considered “completed sales” when the franchisee collects final payment from the customer or by the date that is 1 month after final installation of all products and/or services sold to the customer, whichever is earlier.
- “Median” means that 1/2 of the Reporting Franchisees achieved Annual Gross Revenue that exceeded the Median Annual Gross Revenue, and 1/2 had Annual Gross Revenue below the number presented.
- Prior to the issuance of this Disclosure Document, all franchisees signed franchise agreements to operate Manufacturing Facilities. However, certain Reporting Franchisees began using other franchisees and 3rd parties to manufacture storage products they designed. The revenues disclosed above may include revenue earned by some of the Reporting Franchisees from providing Manufacturing Services to other System franchisees.
