Retail Brand Franchise overview we use franchising as a business approach to distributing goods and services to consumers through retail brands.
As a franchisee, we have a retail business brand represented by a service trademark or similar right, as well as an operating system for the franchise business.
We then enter into a franchise agreement with the franchisee and grant the franchisee the right to manage the retail business using our commercial brand, service logo and operating system.
Franchisees must operate their retail business in accordance with the systems, specifications, standards and formats we have developed for commercial brands.
We train franchisees on how to operate the franchise business.
We also provide continuous support and services to franchisees.
We created value.
Retail-oriented brands based on old goods and smaller new product portfolios.
We have a franchise for franchisees who have opened franchises with these brands.
Key elements of our franchise strategy include: the right of a franchise to provide value to a retail store
For goods;
Attract new and qualified franchisees;
And provide initial and continuous support for franchisees.
2 Content value table-
Commodity-oriented retail brands provide value to consumers by purchasing and reselling old goods that have exceeded or ceased to be used, thus greatly saving the price of new goods.
By providing high-
Quality and Value of use
We benefit from the value needs of consumers.
Retail-oriented.
In addition, we believe that in the national retail business, our retail store brands provide consumers with unique sources of value by purchasing used goods.
We also believe that the strategy of buying used goods will increase consumers\' awareness of our retail brands.
Attracting franchisees for retail brands our franchise marketing program is designed to attract potential franchisees who have experience in management and operations and are interested in becoming their own business owners and operators.
We seek franchisees with sufficient net assets;
Business experience;
And intends to participate in the management of the business.
As of December 29, 2018, we have signed 47 retail franchise agreements, most of which are expected to open in 2019.
We started franchising in Canada in 1991 and as of December 29, 2018 we opened 113 licensed retail stores in Canada.
Canadian retail stores are operated by franchisees under agreements substantially similar to those used in the United States.
Our success as franchisees depends on our ability to develop and support competitive and successful franchise brands.
We highlight the following areas of franchise support and assistance.
Each franchisee must be trained on our training program, regardless of previous experience.
Soon after the signing of the franchise agreement, the franchisee is required to attend the new owner training.
This course covers basic management issues such as preparation of business plans, lease assessments, assessment of insurance needs, and access to finance.
Our trainers help each franchisee develop a business plan for their retail stores through financial and cash flow forecasts.
The second training is centered on store operation.
It covers point-among other things-of-
Sales computer training, inventory selection and acquisition, sales, marketing and other topics.
We provide the franchisees with a regularly updated operating manual.
On-site support us to provide operators to assist franchisees in their new business.
We also have an ongoing on-site support program designed to help franchisees run their retail stores.
Our franchise support personnel visit each retail store on a regular basis and in most cases conduct a business assessment to determine whether the franchisee operates according to our standards.
This visit is also to help franchisees solve operational problems.
During the training period, each franchisee was told how to evaluate, purchase and price used goods directly from the customer.
We developed a special computer point. of-
Our brand\'s sales system, which provides standardized price information to franchisees to help with the purchase of old items.
We offer a centralized purchase service that includes fees for credit and Sports franchisees on a limited basis.
Our Play It Sports franchise system uses several major suppliers of new products including Nautilus, Wilson Sporting Goods, Champro Sports, Easton Sports, Columbia hockey and Ball Hockey
The loss of any of the above suppliers will change the supplier\'s portfolio, but will not significantly change the products we provide.
3 Content sheets provide an affordable source of new products for our game sports franchisees, once with kids and music, we have established relationships with our key suppliers, and negotiate prices for our franchisees to take advantage of the purchasing power brought about by the franchise system.
Our typical kids store used to buy about 30% new products from Rachel\'s ribbons, wild accessories, Melissa and Doug, and Nuby.
The loss of any of the above suppliers will change the supplier\'s portfolio, but will not significantly change the products we provide.
Our music goes to stores to buy KMC/Musicorp, RapcoHorizon, d, GHS and Ernie balls for about 50% of new products.
The loss of any of the above suppliers will change the supplier\'s portfolio, but will not significantly change the products we provide.
Our typical Plato wardrobe and style encore franchise stores do not have an important supplier of new products because the proportion of new products in sales of these brands is extremely low.
Retail advertising and marketing we encourage our franchisees to implement marketing programs that include: TV, radio, point-of-
Purchase materials in store signage and local store marketing plans, as well as email marketing promotions, website promotions and engagement in social and digital media.
Franchisees of each retail brand must spend at least 5% of their total sales on approved advertising and marketing.
Franchisees can be required to participate in the regional cooperation advertising group.
Computerized pointOf-

The sales system is designed specifically for our licensed retail stores.
The current system includes our proprietary data recovery system software, dedicated servers, two or more workstation registers, receipt printers, report printers, and barcode scanners, software modules for inventory management, cash management and customer information management.
Our franchisees buy computer hardware from us.
The data recovery system software is designed to meet the purchase of second-hand goods.
The system provides franchisees with important management tools to reduce errors, improve efficiency and strengthen inventory control.
We offer points. of-
Provide sales system support through our computer support center located at the company\'s headquarters.
We have entered into a franchise agreement with the franchisee.
Here is a summary of some key terms of our current standard retail brand franchise agreement.
Apart from the above, the franchise agreements used by each of our retail brands are usually the same.
Each franchisee must execute our franchise agreement and pay the initial franchise fee.
As of December 29, 2018, the initial store franchise fee for all brands in the United States was $25,000S.
An initial store in Canada costs $31, $ 500CAD.
Once the franchisee has opened the original store, it can open an additional store for any brand by paying $15,000 for the franchise for stores in the United StatesS.
A shop in Canada is priced at $ 19000cad provided that there is an acceptable area and that the franchisee meets the brand\'s additional store standards.
Our initial retail and additional retail store franchise fees in Canada are based on the exchange rate applicable to us franchise fees for the last business day of the previous fiscal year.
The March2019 franchise fee for an initial retail store in Canada will be $34, $000, and another retail store in Canada will be $20, 500CAD.
Typically, the initial store of the franchisee opens within approximately 12 months from the date of signing the franchise agreement.
The initial term of the franchise agreement is 10 years, followed by 10-
The annual renewal period and Grant franchisees an exclusive geographical area that varies in size depending on population, population and other factors.
Under the current franchise agreement, franchisees of each brand are required to pay a weekly continuing fee to the United States (royalties)
Equivalent to the percentage of total sales as outlined in their franchise agreement, the total sales of all our brands typically range from 4% to 5%.
Each franchisee is required to pay an annual marketing fee of $1,000.
Each new or updated franchisee needs to spend 5% of its total sales to advertise and promote its franchise store.
At present, in addition to participating in sports again, all retail brands have the option to increase the minimum advertising spending requirements from 5% 4 catalogues to 6% of the total sales of franchisees, up to £ 2% will be paid to us as an advertising fee to be deposited into the advertising fund.
While we do not currently have the option to increase the advertising spending requirements for playing sports franchisees again, we may also require these franchisees to pay 2% of their total sales to the advertising fund.
If launched, the fund will be managed by us for advertising and promotion of the franchise system.
During the franchise agreement, the franchisee agrees not to operate any competitive business directly or indirectly.
In addition, the franchisee agrees that after the expiration or termination of the term of the franchise agreement, the franchisee will operate any competitive business within a reasonable geographical area for a period of two years.
While our franchise agreement contains provisions designed to ensure the quality of the franchisee\'s operations, we have less control over the franchisee\'s operations than when we own and operate retail stores.
Under the franchise agreement, we have the right to give priority to rejection when selling any franchise store, but we have no obligation to repurchase any franchise.
Renewal of franchise relationship at the end of 10-
The annual term of each franchise agreement, each franchisee can sign the new 10-
Annual franchise agreement.
If the franchisee chooses not to sign a new franchise agreement, the franchisee must comply with all post-termination obligations, including the non-competition provisions of the franchisee discussed above.
Only with the permission of the franchise agreement and applicable state law can we choose not to renew the franchise relationship.
We believe that updating these franchise relationships is critical to the success of the company.
Over the past three years, we have renewed the franchise agreement of 99%.
Retail franchises compete for retail, including the sale of clothing, sporting goods and musical instruments for teenagers, children and women, and the competition is fierce.
Many retailers have more money and other resources than we do.
Our franchisees compete with established local retail stores, discount chains and traditional retail stores for the sale of new goods.
Retailers across the board usually carry only items that are rare or unused.
Resale, thrift and consignment shop, garage and dump counter sales offer our franchisees a competition to sell used goods.
In addition, our franchisees are increasingly competing with online used and new goods markets such as eBay, craigslist.
Our Plato wardrobe franchise mainly competes with professional clothing stores such as American Eagle, Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, Old Navy, Hollister and Forever 21.
We compete with other franchisees in the youth clothing retail market.
Our former children\'s franchisees mainly compete with large retailers such as Wal-Mart.
Various specialty retail stores such as Gap Kids.
We compete with other franchisees in the specialty child resale retail market.
We are again competing with large retailers such as Dick\'s Sporting Goods, college sports and outdoor as well as regional and local sporting goods stores.
We also compete with Target and Wal. Mart.
Our Encore franchise stores compete with a variety of women\'s clothing stores.
We also compete with other franchisees in the women\'s clothing retail market.
Our music franchise stores compete with large instrument retailers such as Guitar Center and local indie instrument stores.
In the future, we may face more competition in our retail business.
This may include other competitors who may enter the second-hand goods market.
We believe that our franchisees will continue to compete with other retailers based on our value
Brand-oriented and name recognition related to our Service logo.
We also face competition related to franchising.
Before purchasing franchise from us, our potential franchisees often assess other franchise opportunities.
We compete with other franchisees for 5 content franchisees based on the following factors: initial investment, franchise fees, royalties, profitability, franchisee services and industries.
We believe that our franchise brands compete with other franchises based on the fees we charge, franchise support services and performance of existing franchise brands.

High industry
The technical equipment industry is characterized by rapid and continuous progress that allows for the expansion of user applications and the reduction of processing costs.
The introduction of new equipment usually does not lead to outdated existing equipment, but usually leads to a decline in the market value of existing equipment, reflecting the performance improvement of new equipment cost per dollar.
Users often change their equipment because their existing equipment is not able to meet their needs, or they need to increase their processing capacity, thus creating a secondary market in used equipment. Generally high-
Technical equipment, such as information technology equipment, will not undergo physical deterioration if properly maintained.
According to the requirements of our rental, the equipment we lease must be maintained continuously according to the manufacturer\'s specifications (usually provided by the manufacturer.

Ticket financing transactions usually range from $5,000 to $100,000 for a period of two to four years, covering commercial basic assets such as computers, printing equipment, security systems, telecom equipment, and production equipment.
Our financing transaction is usually a full payment transaction, which means that the customer has the assets after paying all the necessary payments as stipulated in the financing agreement.
Key elements of our small
The ticketing business strategy involves focusing on the relationship between business owners and equipment suppliers and providing fast credit decisions, flexible terms and easy-to-understand processes.
The small ticket finance industry is highly fragmented and highly competitive.
Small business owners usually finance their business through one of many possible sources including banks, supplier-specific financing companies, leasing brokers, credit card companies and independent leasing companies.
These funding sources typically limit their focus to certain types of transactions and may be determined based on credit quality, geographical location, transaction size, asset type or other criteria.
Financing so far, we have used our existing cash or debt to fund most of our leases internally.
Winmark Capital Corporation may pass from time to time
At a fixed rate, the rental rent is discounted to financial institutions.
The proceeds from the transfer of rental rent are generally equal to the present value of the remaining rental payments due under the lease, discounted at the rate charged by the financial institution.

Recourse financing, financial institutions have the first lien on basic rental equipment, and no longer pursue us.
However, if the customer fails to pay the lease or some other breach of contract occurs by the customer in accordance with the terms of the lease, the agency may obtain ownership of the collateral.
Our use of rental discounting depends on having leases that are attractive to financial institutions and the cash balance we have available.

Many of these companies are much larger than us, and have far greater financial, technical and marketing resources than we do.
Some of our competitors are less expensive and we can\'t get a source of money.
The lower cost of funds may enable competitors to provide leases with a yield much lower than the rate of return we provide, which may cause us to lose the original amount of the lease.
In addition, some of our competitors may have higher risk tolerance or different risk assessments, which may enable them to establish more original sources and end-user customer relationships and improve their

Sales franchise registration and/or disclosure requirements for franchisees.
In addition, some countries have formulated regulations to regulate the substantive aspects of franchisees --
Termination, non-renewal, transfer, discrimination between franchisees and competition with franchisees.
Additional legislation at the federal and state levels could be expanded
Sales disclosure requirements further regulate the substantive aspects of the franchise relationship and require us to submit charter disclosure documents to other states.
We cannot predict the effect of future franchise legislation, but we do not believe that there is currently any legislative council to be considered that has a significant adverse effect on our operations.
While most states do not directly regulate the commercial equipment leasing financing business, certain states require lenders and financial companies to obtain permission and impose restrictions on interest rates and other charges, and disclose certain contract terms and restrictions on collection practices.
We believe that we are currently in compliance with all the important regulations and regulations that apply to our business.

If a large number of franchise relationships are not updated, our financial performance will be significantly and adversely affected.
We rely on new franchisees.
Our ability to generate more revenue and achieve a higher level of profitability depends to a certain extent on the increase in the number of open franchises.
Unfavorable macro
Economic conditions may affect the ability of potential franchisees to obtain external financing and/or affect their net assets, both of which may result in lower levels of openness than we have experienced historically.
There is no guarantee that we will maintain the current franchise level.
We are in the early stages of the new franchise program.
We are currently investing in a new initiative to provide advisory services, support and capital to emerging franchisees.
There is no guarantee that we will succeed in this area, nor that it will have a negative impact on our financial performance.
We may make additional investments outside of our core business.
Sometimes we have and may continue to invest both internally and externally in our current business.
If we make an unsuccessful additional investment, this investment may have a significant adverse effect on our financial results.
We may sell the franchise for a certain area, but the franchisee may not be open.
We believe that most granted but not open franchises will be open within the time allowed by the applicable franchise agreement, or that we will be able to resell the territory franchise for most terminated or expired franchises.
However, there is no guarantee that almost all of the franchises currently sold but not yet open will be open and will start paying us royalties.
Our retail franchisees rely on the supply of used goods.
Our retail brand is based on a combination of old and new items for our customers.
Therefore, the ability of our franchisees to obtain a continuous supply of high-quality second-hand goods is crucial to the success of our brand.
The supply of second-hand goods comes from the public, irregular and unreliable.
In addition, compliance with federal and state product safety and other requirements may limit the number of used goods available to our franchisees.
In addition to the laws and regulations applicable to general businesses, our licensed retail stores may also be subject to state or local regulations or regulations governing used dealers.
There is no guarantee that our Chamber of Commerce will avoid the supply of old goods.
We may not be able to collect accounts receivable from franchisees.
If our ability to charge accounts receivable from the current interest rate has dropped significantly, we may incur additional charges that affect our income.
If we are unable to collect due payments from franchisees, this will have a significant adverse effect on our operating results and financial position.
We do business in a highly competitive industry.
Competition in the retail sector, including sales of youth, children and women\'s clothing, sporting goods and musical instruments, is fierce.
Many retailers have more money and other resources than us and our franchisees.
Individual franchisees face competition in their markets from new commodity retailers, and in some cases competition from other stores that resell, thrift and sell old goods.
With the expansion of our franchise system, we may face additional competition if more competitors enter the second-hand goods market.
Our equipment leasing business competes with various sources of equipment financing available to the enterprise, including: national, regional and local financial companies that provide rental and loan products;
Through exclusive financing and leasing companies attached to major equipment manufacturers;
And commercial banks, savings and loans, credit unions and credit cards.
Many of these companies are much larger than us, and have far greater financial, technical and marketing resources than we do.
There is no guarantee that we can successfully compete with these larger competitors.
There is a credit risk in our rental portfolio and our credit loss allowance may not be sufficient to absorb the loss.
In our leasing business, if we do not accurately assess the credibility of our customers, we may encounter more lease defaults than expected, which will reduce our income. For our middle-
Market customers, we serve a wide range of businesses, from small companies that may be financed by venture capital investors to large organizations that may be financed by private equity companies and large independent public or private companies.
In many cases, our credit analysis relies on the current or projected financial position of the client.
If we fail to fully assess the risk of a client\'s business plan, we may suffer a loss of credit. For our small-
Ticket customers usually have only limited public finance and other information about their business.
Therefore, in making credit decisions, we rely on the accuracy of the information provided by small business owners and/or third-party sources such as credit reporting agencies.
If we get incorrect information from small business owners and/or third-party sources, our ability to make appropriate credit decisions will be compromised.
We may generate a concentration of credit risk in our rental portfolio.
As of December 29, 2018, rental assets with one client accounted for about 26% of our total net rental investment.
If the loss caused by the lease exceeds our credit loss limit, our operating income will be reduced.
In relation to our lease, we recorded the allowance for the loss of credit to provide the estimated loss.
Determining the appropriate level of the allowance is an inherent uncertainty process, so our determination of the allowance may not be sufficient to cover the loss of our rental portfolio.
Losses exceeding our credit loss allowance will result in us increasing our reserve for credit loss, reducing or eliminating our operating income.
Any substantial increase in such losses could have a significant adverse effect on our financial performance.
The deterioration of the economic or commercial situation may have a negative impact on our leasing business.
In the event of a slowdown or recession, our equipment rental business may face increased default payments, lease defaults and credit losses.
The rental business volume of our new and existing customers may decline, and the credit quality of customers may also decline.
Because we provide credit to many new and leveraged companies through our subsidiary Winmark Capital Corporation, mainly through our subsidiary, Wirth Business credit, Inc. , to small businesses
Our customers may be particularly vulnerable to a slowdown or recession.
Any long-term economic slowdown or recession can make it difficult for us to maintain the number of leases for new and existing customers and may deteriorate the quality of credit for new leases.
Any of these events can slow down the growth of our rental portfolio and affect the profitability of our rental business.
Our credit line and Bill facilities are limited.
In addition, our credit line will be affected by counter-party risks.
Our $50 terms.
A credit line of 0 million and $37.
5 million note financing imposes certain operational and financial restrictions on US and requires us to meet certain financial tests, including tests related to minimum debt service levels, tangible net assets and maximum leverage levels.
As of December 29, 2018, we have complied with all financial covenants under these facilities;
However, failure to comply with these covenants in the future may result in a default of one or two of the capital sources and may result in an acceleration of the relevant liabilities.
Any such debt acceleration will adversely affect our business activities and our financial position.
Continued deterioration of the credit market may jeopardize the counterparty obligations of one or two banks involved in our credit line, if we cannot replace this credit instrument or find other sources of liquidity on acceptable terms, this may adversely affect our business.
We have debt.
We have liabilities for the 2017 offer to acquire shares (see Note 5 —
Equity of shareholders (Deficit)” and Note 6 —“Debt”)
, We expect to generate additional liabilities for the purchase of shares in the 2019 bid offer (See Note 13 —
\"Follow-up events \").
We would like to generate the cash needed to pay our fees, finance our leasing business and pay the principal and interest of all our outstanding debts from the cash flow provided by our business activities.
Our ability to pay, finance the leasing business and meet our debt-servicing obligations depends on our performance in the future, which may be affected by financial, commercial, economic and other factors.
If we do not have enough money to pay off our debt, we may be required to refinance, sell assets, borrow more money or raise equity for all or part of our existing debt.
In this case, we may not be able to refinance, sell assets, borrow more funds or raise equity on conditions that we can accept or at all.
In addition, we have the ability to carry out these activities on favourable terms and, if any, may be further affected by any financial or credit crisis that may limit access to the credit market, and increase the cost of our capital.
We are under government supervision.
As franchisees, we must comply with various federal and state franchise laws and regulations.
14 states, the Federal Trade Commission and 6 Canadian provinces
Sales franchise registration and/or disclosure requirements for franchisees.
In addition, some countries have formulated regulations to regulate the substantive aspects of franchisees --
Termination, non-renewal, transfer, discrimination between franchisees and competition with franchisees.
Additional legislation at the federal and state levels could be expanded
The sales disclosure requirements further regulate the substantive aspects of the franchise relationship and require us to submit franchise notices to other states.
Future franchise legislation may impose costs or other burdens on us, thus having a significant adverse impact on our operations.
In addition, changing labor and employment laws, rules and regulations may lead us as franchisees to make potential claims for labor and employment-related liability that has historically been borne by franchisees.
Although most states do not directly regulate the commercial equipment leasing financing business, some states require lenders and financial companies to obtain permission to limit interest rates and other charges and limit collection behavior, and require disclosure of certain terms of the contract.
For our equipment rental or equipment rental industry as well as the collection process, laws or regulations can be passed.
Any new legislation or regulations affecting the equipment rental industry, or changes to existing legal interpretation, may increase our compliance costs.
We may not be able to guard against data security risks.
We have implemented a security system to maintain the physical safety of our facilities, protect our employees, franchisees, lessees, customers, customers and suppliers of confidential information and information related to identifiable individuals, prevent theft or loss of physical media through our information system or other electronic transmission or unauthorized access in the wrong direction.
These include, for example, proper information encryption.
Despite these efforts, we may still be potentially compromised by the security system, which may result in unauthorized access to our facilities or information that we are trying to protect.
Because the technologies used to obtain unauthorized access are constantly changing, becoming more and more complex, and are usually not recognized until the target is launched, we may not be able to predict these technologies, adequate precautions cannot be implemented.
If an unauthorized party is able to actually access one of our facilities or electronic access to our information system, or if this information is misled, lost or stolen during transmission or transportation, any theft or abuse of this information, among other things, may result in adverse publicity, government investigation and supervision, and difficulty in marketing our services, client and client charges that we have not fulfilled our contractual obligations, litigation by the affected parties and possible financial obligations for damages related to theft or abuse of such information, any of these could have a significant adverse impact on our business.
Item 1B: Staff comments that have not been resolved.
Project 2: We rented 41,016 square feet of property at our headquarters facility in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Under the lease, we are obliged to pay the rent on a monthly basis, and for the remaining period due on 2029, we will pay an average of $765,600 per year.
We are also obliged to pay the projected taxes and operating expenses described in the lease, which change every year.
If we exercise any right to obtain the additional space described in the lease, the total amount of rent, taxes and operating expenses paid may increase.
Our facilities are sufficient to meet our current and future needs.
