“Our team’s dedication to improving quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care increased patient count and delivered continued growth in 2023, despite ongoing macroeconomic challenges,” stated Peter D. Holt, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Joint Corp. “In the fall, we began implementing several initiatives that we expect to improve our 2024 performance and profitability. To drive top-line growth and new patient count, we are enhancing our promotions, brand positioning, and media with an increased focus on attracting lapsed patients as well as elongating membership of existing patients. To improve the bottom line, we are executing our refranchising strategy for the majority of our corporate clinics. In the fourth quarter, we set systems in place to manage sales in clusters and sent non-disclosure agreements to approximately 100 franchisees who expressed interest. These actions are expected to strengthen the health of our franchise network and increase our ability to reinvest in the business to create value for our stakeholder.”

Management intends to report its fourth quarter and year-end 2023 financial results on Thursday, March 7, 2024, after the market close. President and CEO Peter D. Holt and CFO Jake Singleton will hold a conference call at 5:00 p.m. ET that day to discuss the results.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains statements about future events and expectations that constitute forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on our beliefs, assumptions and expectations of industry trends, our future financial and operating performance and our growth plans, taking into account the information currently available to us. These statements are not statements of historical fact. Words such as, "anticipates," "believes," "continues," "estimates," "expects," "goal," "objectives," "intends," "may," "opportunity," "plans," "potential," "near-term," "long-term," "projections," "assumptions," "projects," "guidance," "forecasts," "outlook," "target," "trends," "should," "could," "would," "will," and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Specific forward looking statements made in this press release include, among others, our belief that in the fall we began implementing several initiatives that we expect will improve our 2024 performance and profitability; our plan to drive top-line growth and new patient count by enhancing our promotions, brand positioning, and media with an increased focus on attracting lapsed patients as well as elongating membership of existing patients; our plan to improve the bottom line by executing our refranchising strategy for the majority of our corporate clinics; our belief that our recent actions are expected to strengthen the health of our franchise network and increase our ability to reinvest in the business to create value for our stakeholders. Factors that could contribute to these differences include, but are not limited to, our inability to identify and recruit enough qualified chiropractors and other personnel to staff our clinics, due in part to the nationwide labor shortage and an increase in operating expenses due to measures we may need to take to address such shortage; inflation, exacerbated by COVID-19 and the current war in Ukraine, which has increased our costs and which could otherwise negatively impact our business; the potential for further disruption to our operations and the unpredictable impact on our business of the COVID-19 outbreak and outbreaks of other contagious diseases; our failure to profitably operate company-owned or managed clinics; short-selling strategies and negative opinions posted on the internet, which could drive down the market price of our common stock and result in class action lawsuits; our failure to remediate future material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, which could negatively impact our ability to accurately report our financial results, prevent fraud, or maintain investor confidence; and other factors described in our filings with the SEC, including in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2022 filed with the SEC on September 26, 2023 and subsequently filed current and quarterly reports. We qualify any forward-looking statements entirely by these cautionary factors. We assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements for any reason or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future. Comparisons of results for current and any prior periods are not intended to express any future trends or indications of future performance, unless expressed as such, and should only be viewed as historical data.

1 System-wide sales include sales at all clinics, whether operated by the Company or by franchisees. While franchised sales are not recorded as revenues by the Company, management believes the information is important in understanding the Company’s financial performance, because these sales are the basis on which the Company calculates and records royalty fees and are indicative of the financial health of the franchisee base. 

2 Comp sales include the sales from both company-owned or managed clinics and franchised clinics that in each case have been open at least 13 full months and exclude any clinics that have closed, respectively.
