The Joint Corp. Repurchases 6 Franchises

Reacquisition of Los Angeles County Franchises and Regional Developer Rights Positions The Joint Corp. for Company-Owned Unit Expansion in Los Angeles

January 21, 2015 // // SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Joint Corp. (Nasdaq: JYNT), a national healthcare franchisor of chiropractic clinics, today reported that, in accordance with its strategy to operate and develop company owned units and to reacquire select regional developer rights, it has repurchased six franchises in Los Angeles County, California and reacquired and terminated the regional developer rights for that region. This transaction will position the company to immediately begin operating company-owned clinics, to eliminate royalty-sharing payment obligations, and to terminate the obligation to pay regional developer selling fees for future clinics to be opened in Los Angeles County, the second largest Metropolitan Statistical Area ("MSA") in the United States.

The transaction involves the repurchase, from an entity affiliated with the Los Angeles regional developer, of four operating franchises and two undeveloped franchises. The company intends to operate the four operating franchises as company-owned clinics and to relocate the two undeveloped franchises. In addition, the transaction involves the repurchase of development rights for Joint franchises in the important Los Angeles region. The company does not intend to resell these rights, but rather to terminate this regional developer license as a prelude to developing company-owned clinics in this region.

The total consideration for the transaction was $1,407,500, which will be funded from the proceeds of The Joint Corp.'s recent initial public offering (IPO).

"This is an important step in our long term strategy to accelerate the growth and profitability of The Joint Corp. through the acquisition of existing franchises and regional developer territories," commented John Richards, chief executive officer of The Joint Corp. "This transaction allows us accelerate our plan to focus on opening clinics that are directly owned and operated by us."

"We are pleased to quickly kick off our post-IPO strategy in the second largest MSA in the country where growth potential is significant," noted David Orwasher, chief operating officer of The Joint Corp. "Los Angeles County presents a very attractive market for further expansion."
