The Company classifies its business interests into three reportable segments: Franchising, Manufacturing and Retail Stores. The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies in Note 1 to these consolidated financial statements and Note 1 to the Company’s financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 29, 2012. The Company evaluates performance and allocates resources based on operating contribution, which excludes unallocated corporate general and administrative costs and income tax expense or benefit. The Company’s reportable segments are strategic businesses that utilize common merchandising, distribution, and marketing functions, as well as common information systems and corporate administration.
