* Bases: The projections in the above tables are derived from the actual historical average performance of five (5) outlets located in Bangor, ME based on their approximately 20 years of experience. Said five (5) outlets used to be company-owned and were sold to franchisee Publishers over the years. The average ads sold by the five (5) outlets are above 80% over the years. Because of the fixed amount of weekly fees, Publishers are not required to provide us with their financials and we do not collect their financial information. We are familiar with the above-mentioned five (5) outlets and consider the data relating to their performance reliable over the years.
* Assumptions: Our study measured 5 company-owned and operated outlets in Bangor, ME, which is the principal city of the Bangor Metropolitan Statistical Areas with a population of approximately 153,923.
