"2007 was a year of transition for Jamba. We continued to make the necessary investments required by being a new public operating company, and to accelerate the transition from a smoothie company to a healthy living brand," said Paul Clayton, Jamba's CEO. "While we are disappointed with certain financial results in fiscal 2007, we made significant progress in the implementation of our strategy that will position Jamba for the future. The economic environment has been challenging and has impacted our store-level economics. We expect the economic environment to continue to be challenging in 2008, thus we have decided to slow our growth of new company-store openings to enable us to focus on store-level performance. We remain confident that we have the right strategy in place to deliver on our brand promise, improve our financial performance, and increase shareholder value."

ADDITIONAL RESULTS AND 2008 OUTLOOK

Company-Owned Comparable Store Sales (2)

For fiscal year 2008, we are forecasting full-year, company owned comparable store sales to be in a range between negative 2% and positive 2%.

Store-Level Cash Flow Margin

For purposes of evaluating operating performance, the Company uses a Store-Level Cash Flow Margin measurement. Store-level cash flow margin represents company-owned stores revenue less costs of sales, labor costs, occupancy costs, and store-level operating costs divided by company-owned stores revenue. The Store-Level Cash Flow Margin for fiscal 2007 was 13.5%. We believe that newer store Store-Level Cash Flow Margins improve as our new company-owned stores build sales volumes over time and gain efficiencies. We are also working on a number of supply chain projects to reduce costs and help offset commodity cost increases. In fiscal 2008, we are targeting Store-Level Cash Flow to modestly improve to greater than 14%.

Please see the reconciliation of Store-Level Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, to a GAAP financial measure in the table at the end of this release. Please also see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" at the end of this release.

General and Administrative Expense

General and administrative expense, including stock-based compensation expense, was 15.3% of total revenue for fiscal 2007. In fiscal 2008, the Company expects to leverage its G&A expense and has targeted G&A expense to be less than 13.0% of total revenue.

New Store Openings

Given the challenging economic conditions, which can impact our customer frequency of visit, and our focus on ensuring that our new initiatives are operationally executed at a high level, we believe it is prudent to moderate our capital spending. Due to these reasons, for fiscal 2008, the Company has reduced its targeted store growth to 45-55 company-owned stores and 35-45 franchise stores.

Fiscal 2007 Impairment Charges

In accordance with SFAS 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets," the Company tested and concluded that impairment existed in its goodwill and other intangible assets, resulting in a non-cash impairment charge of $200.6 million which reflects the difference between the fair value and carrying value for goodwill and trademarks. We continue to believe in the growth and value of our business; however, according to current accounting convention, we are required to place significant emphasis on current stock trading values in performing our impairment assessment.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company ended the fourth fiscal quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $23.0 million. For fiscal 2008, we expect to fund our development growth out of operating cash flow while maintaining a prudent cash position. The Company has received a commitment letter for a $25 million revolving line of credit and expects to close in March 2008.

Footnotes

    (1)The operating results for fiscal 2007 include the full year results of Jamba Juice Company, but Jamba Juice Company results in fiscal 2006 are only included for the period subsequent to November 29, 2006, the date the Company acquired Jamba Juice Company. Therefore, to facilitate an understanding of the Company's trends and on-going performance, the fourth quarter and 52 week fiscal 2006 results have been presented herein on a proforma basis to give effect to the acquisition as if it had occurred at the beginning of fiscal 2006. A reconciliation of proforma amounts has been included at the end of this release.

    (2)Comparable store sales for 4Q07 are compared to the first 11 weeks of 4Q06, and for FY07 are compared to the first 51 weeks of FY06. Comparable store sales are calculated using sales of stores open at least 13 full fiscal periods.

Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements are statements that are not historical facts. Forward looking statements in this release include our estimated company-owned comparable store sales for fiscal 2008, our target Store-Level Cash Flow margin for fiscal 2008, G&A leverage for fiscal 2008, new store openings for fiscal 2008, the growth and value of the Company's business, the closing of the line of credit, and capital expenditures for fiscal 2008. Such forward-looking statements, based upon the current beliefs and expectations of Jamba, Inc.'s management, are subject to risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from the forward looking statements. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: changing interpretations of generally accepted accounting principles; continued compliance with government regulations; legislation or regulatory environments, requirements or changes adversely affecting the businesses in which Jamba, Inc. is engaged; demand for the products and services that Jamba, Inc. provides, general economic conditions; geopolitical events and regulatory changes, as well as other relevant risks detailed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The information set forth herein should be read in light of such risks. The Company does not assume any obligation to update the information contained in this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this earnings release, conference calls, slide presentations or webcasts, the Company may use or discuss Store-Level Cash Flow Margins. We believe that Store-Level Cash Flow Margins are critical to our long-term success. Accordingly, we review Store-Level Cash Flow Margins as a key business metric, both within our system and as compared to our peers. Store-Level Cash Flow Margin is a non-GAAP financial measure. As compared to the nearest GAAP measurement for our Company, operating loss, Store-Level Cash Flow Margin represents Company stores revenue less cost of sales, labor costs, occupancy costs, and store operating expense as a percentage of Company store revenue. Not included in the calculation is depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expense, store pre-opening expense, other operating expense, goodwill impairment, and formation and operating costs. Store-Level Cash Flow Margin as we define it may not be comparable to similar measurements used by other companies and is not a measure of performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that Store-Level Cash Flow Margin is an important component of financial results because it is a widely used measurement within the restaurant industry to evaluate store-level productivity, efficiency, and performance. This non-GAAP measurement should not be used as a substitute for net income (loss), net cash provided by or used in operations or other financial data prepared in accordance with GAAP.
