Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. Announces Ticker Symbol Change To SAUC

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - Nov. 5, 2015 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:BAGR) ("DRH" or the "Company"), the largest franchisee for Buffalo Wild Wings® ("BWW") and creator and operator of Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern® ("Bagger Dave's"), announced today a ticker symbol change for its common stock. Effective upon the opening of trading on November 9, 2015, Diversified Restaurant Holdings' ticker symbol, as quoted on the NASDAQ stock exchange, will change to SAUC from BAGR.

Michael Ansley, President and CEO of Diversified Restaurant Holdings noted, "Our new symbol SAUC better aligns with our strategic direction and pays tribute to BWW's New York-style chicken wings prepared in 21 signature sauces and seasonings. As we announced in today's earnings release, going forward we will be concentrating on expanding our BWW portfolio because the BWW brand offers us a significantly greater opportunity to grow our top-line and profitability while strengthening our balance sheet. We currently operate 62 BWW restaurants across major metropolitan areas such as Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago, and Florida's West Coast with plans to open another 16 locations under our amended area development agreement. We have also halted further development of Bagger Dave's beyond the remaining location currently under construction as we digest the numerous investments and changes made there over the past 18 months. Focusing on BWW provides us the best means to improve our business and grow shareholder value over time from current levels."
