We had modestly less pressure from foreign exchange rate movement, and we will begin to lap that FX rate pressure in Q2 '23. The long-term opportunity within the Car Wash business remains compelling with strong profitability, cash on cash returns and cash flow generation over time. Our scale and experience will remain a significant competitive advantage as the current environment is beginning to rationalize the competitive intensity of new entrants. the Car Wash category remained resilient relative to the broader retail industry. As we migrate our footprint under the Take 5 Brand, which was largely 2/3 complete as of the end of Q1, we are elevating our brand awareness, standardizing our market positioning, our operations, systems and customer experience. This, in turn, allows us to integrate our Take 5 Unlimited program and enhance our data capture capabilities.” (Jonathan Fitzpatrick, DRVN CEO). Sources: (1) Company public filings; and (2) Equity research consensus estimates per CapitalIQ and industry research reports. Select commentary: “Last year's first quarter benefited from a strong macro backdrop, favorable weather conditions and lower store labor costs. The trends heading into this year's first quarter were obviously very different, and we knew that growing the top and bottom line was going to be difficult. Embedded in the full year guidance that we previously provided was the assumption that first half comparable store sales could be flat to plus or minus or a point or two, while the headwinds from weather did impact the first quarter more than expected, our results were still within the range of expectations.” (Jedidiah Gold, MCW CFO). 7

Spring 2023 What we’re reading “Consumers’ behaviours, technological preferences and expectations continue to evolve ” PWC “A monthly update on the state of the US consumer” McKinsey & Co. February 16, 2023 – Concerned about inflation and the cloudy macroeconomic climate, consumers are realigning their shopping habits and adopting cost-cutting behaviours. Fully half of all consumers are either very or extremely concerned about their own personal financial situation. And 96% of surveyed consumers intend to adopt some type of cost-saving behaviour over the next six months. Still, eager to resume their pre-covid habits, they’re returning to stores and travelling again. Empowered by technology, they’re seeking and demanding seamless in-store and online experiences that better suit their lifestyles—and pocketbooks. April 25, 2023 – Heading into the summer season, consumer sentiment isn’t quite sunny. True, there’s been an uptick in optimism: one-third of consumers, compared with only one-fourth in June 2022, believe the economy will rebound in just two to three months. Still, more than one in five consumers are expecting darker days ahead: 22 percent are predicting a US recession and long-term economic pain. And nearly half of survey respondents report having a “mixed” outlook: they expect the economy to recover but not for another six to 12 months. These numbers are less favorable than they were throughout 2020.

A company can unlock property assets on their balance sheet and generate cash to invest into their business for anything, including new product development, expansions, or any other initiative to grow revenue and profits. Because the arrangements are long-term, a company maintains access to their critical facilities. Additionally, all the lease payments are considered operating expenses, providing tax advantages for lessees. Read More May 11 , 2023 – Subscriptions can strengthen relationships with customers and reduce a dependence on cash transactions. With a critical mass of subscriptions, owner/operators have a more dependable income. They have the confidence to reinvest in the business, which can improve facilities and wash quality, lead to more services and special offers, and ultimately enhance the customer experience and the customer and owner relationship. Subscription models offer a win-win for all parties. Read More Links are being provided for information purposes only.
