Shake Shack Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Total Revenue Increased 104.2%, to $187.5 million, Supported by >300% In-Shack Sales Growth, versus Same Period Last Year
Same-Shack Sales Up 52.7% Compared to Same Period Last Year
Average Weekly Sales Showed Significant Improvement, at $72,000 in the Second Quarter and $74,000 in Fiscal July,
Supported by Stronger Urban and In-Shack Sales

NEW YORK, NY (Business Wire) — August 5, 2021 —
Shake Shack Inc. (“Shake Shack” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SHAK) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021, a period that included 13 weeks.
Randy Garutti, Chief Executive Officer of Shake Shack, stated, “We remain on the path towards full sales recovery, with total revenue up over 104% versus the second quarter of 2020. As restrictions relaxed across the country, in-Shack sales rose more than 300% year on year. The resilience of our business can be seen through the ongoing revenue improvement in our hardest hit urban Shacks, while at the same time we retained the strong business we built in our suburban Shacks. Additionally, even as more of our guests came back to meet us in person, we still grew our digital business double digits and retained approximately 80% of the digital sales versus fiscal January 2021, when digital sales peaked. In terms of profitability, Shack level operating margin improved significantly along with sales, however, we do expect margins to moderate in the coming quarters as we make significant investments in our team. Our Shack team members are at the core of all we do and we have committed an additional $10 million in raises, incentives and leadership development over the next year. We remain focused on the recovery of both sales and profitability across our Shack base and growth over the long term. Our strategic plan centers on the evolution of our Shack formats through physical and digital transformation with the objective of delivering a seamless, elevated guest experience."

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Shake Shack Inc. and its subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and on a basis consistent in all material respects with the accounting policies described in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2020 ("2020 Form 10-K"). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally presented in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. These interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in its 2020 Form 10-K. In the Company's opinion, all adjustments, which are normal and recurring in nature, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operation have been included. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full fiscal year.
SSE Holdings is considered a variable interest entity. Shake Shack Inc. is the primary beneficiary as the Company has the majority economic interest in SSE Holdings and, as the sole managing member, has decision making authority that significantly affects the economic performance of the entity, while the limited partners have no substantive kick-out or participating rights. As a result, the Company consolidates SSE Holdings. The assets and liabilities of SSE Holdings represent substantially all of the Company's consolidated assets and liabilities with the exception of certain deferred taxes and liabilities under the Tax Receivable Agreement. As of June 30, 2021 and December 30, 2020, the net assets of SSE Holdings were $384,193 and $383,669, respectively. The assets of SSE Holdings are subject to certain restrictions in SSE Holdings' revolving credit agreement. Refer to Note 6, Debt, for additional information.
Fiscal Year
The Company operates on a 52/53 week fiscal year ending on the last Wednesday in December. Fiscal 2021 contains 52 weeks and ends on December 29, 2021. Fiscal 2020 contained 53 weeks and ended on December 30, 2020. Unless otherwise stated, references to years in this report relate to fiscal years.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of sales and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements   
The Company adopted the Accounting Standards Updates (“ASUs”) summarized below in fiscal 2021.
Accounting Standards UpdateDescriptionDate
Adopted
Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes

(ASU 2019-12)
This standard simplifies various aspects related to accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in ASC 740, “Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”), and clarifying certain aspects of the current guidance to promote consistency among reporting entities.

The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.
December 31, 2020
Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity's Own
Equity (Subtopic 815-40)—Accounting For Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity.

(ASU 2020-06)
This ASU amends the guidance on convertible instruments and the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity and improves and amends the related earnings per share guidance for both Subtopics.

The Company elected to early adopt this standard, beginning December 31, 2020.

The guidance of this ASU is applicable to the convertible notes issued in March 2021. As a result, the convertible notes are accounted for as a single liability measured at amortized cost. The if-converted earnings per share ("EPS") method is used, with the effect of potential share settlement included in diluted EPS. Refer to Note 6, Debt, and Note 11, Earnings Per Share, for additional information.

NOTE 3: REVENUE
Revenue Recognition
Revenue consists of Shack sales and Licensing revenue. Generally, revenue is recognized as promised goods or services transfer to the guest or customer in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. Shack sales are recognized when payment is tendered at the point of sale as the performance obligation has been satisfied.
Revenue from Shack sales is presented net of discounts and recognized when food, beverage and retail products are sold. Sales tax collected from customers is excluded from Shack sales and the obligation is included in sales tax payable until the taxes are remitted to the appropriate taxing authorities. Revenue from gift cards is deferred and recognized upon redemption.
Licensing revenue includes initial territory fees, Shack opening fees, and ongoing sales-based royalty fees from licensed Shacks. Generally, the licenses granted to develop, open and operate each Shack in a specified territory are the predominant goods or services transferred to the licensee in the contracts, and represent distinct performance obligations. Ancillary promised services, such as training and assistance during the initial opening of a Shack, are typically combined with the licenses and considered as one performance obligation per Shack. The Company determines the transaction price for each contract, which is comprised of the initial territory fee, and an estimate of the total Shack opening fees the Company expects to be entitled to. The calculation of total Shack opening fees included in the transaction price requires judgment, as it is based on an estimate of the number of Shacks the Company expects the licensee to open. The transaction price is then allocated equally to each Shack expected to open. The performance obligations are satisfied over time, starting when a Shack opens, through the end of the term of the
Shake Shack Inc. shak-20210630_g2.jpg Form 10-Q | 11

license granted to the Shack. Because the Company is transferring licenses to access intellectual property during a contractual term, revenue is recognized on a straight-line basis over the license term. Generally, payment for the initial territory fee is received upon execution of the licensing agreement, and payment for the Shack opening fees are received either in advance of or upon opening the related Shack. These payments are initially deferred and recognized as revenue as the performance obligations are satisfied, which occurs over a long-term period.
Revenue from sales-based royalties is recognized as the related sales occur.
Revenue recognized during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020, disaggregated by type is as follows:

NOTE 6: DEBT
Revolving Credit Facility
In August 2019, the Company entered into a revolving credit facility agreement ("Revolving Credit Facility"), which permits borrowings up to $50,000, of which the entire amount is available immediately, with the ability to increase available borrowings up to an additional $100,000, to be made available subject to satisfaction of certain conditions. The Revolving Credit Facility also permits the issuance of letters of credit upon request of up to $15,000.
In March 2020, the Company drew down the full $50,000 available under the Revolving Credit Facility to enhance liquidity and financial flexibility given the uncertain market conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. This amount was paid in full, plus interest, in June 2020.
In May 2020, the Company entered into a first amendment to the Revolving Credit Facility ("First Amendment"), which, among other things, provided for modified financial covenant compliance requirements for a period of time. The First Amendment required the Company to maintain minimum liquidity of $25,000 through July 1, 2021 and outstanding borrowings during the applicable period covered by the First Amendment bore interest at either: (i) the London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") plus a percentage ranging from 1.0% to 2.5% or (ii) the base rate plus a percentage ranging from 0.0% to 1.5%, in each case depending on the Company's net lease adjusted leverage ratio.
In March 2021, the Company entered into a second amendment to the Revolving Credit Facility (“Second Amendment”). The Second Amendment modified the applicable covenants and restrictions in the Revolving Credit Facility to permit the incurrence of the Convertible Notes (as defined below), including obligations and transactions in connection therewith. In addition, the Second Amendment, among other things, (i) extended the period applicable to the increased interest rate margin as set forth in the First Amendment; (ii) shortened the maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility from August 2024 to September 2022 and (iii) added
Shake Shack Inc. shak-20210630_g2.jpg Form 10-Q | 14

mechanics relating to the transition from the use of LIBOR to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate ("SOFR") upon the discontinuance or unavailability of LIBOR.
Subsequently, and also in March 2021, the Company entered into a third amendment to the Revolving Credit Facility (“Third Amendment”) as Wells Fargo Bank resigned as administrative agent under the Revolving Credit Facility and assigned its commitments thereunder to JPMorgan Bank, N.A. The Third Amendment appoints JPMorgan Bank, N.A. as administrative agent under the Revolving Credit Facility. In addition, the Third Amendment, among other things, extends the maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility from September 2022 to March 2026. As of June 30, 2021 and December 30, 2020, no amounts were outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility.
The obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility are secured by a first-priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of SSE Holdings and the guarantors. The obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility are guaranteed by each of SSE Holdings' direct and indirect subsidiaries (with certain exceptions).
The Revolving Credit Facility requires the Company to comply with maximum net lease adjusted leverage and minimum fixed charge coverage ratios. The Company is not subject to these coverage ratios for a period of time due to the Second Amendment to the Revolving Credit Facility described above. In addition, the Revolving Credit Facility contains other customary affirmative and negative covenants, including those which (subject to certain exceptions and dollar thresholds) limit the Company's ability to incur debt; incur liens; make investments; engage in mergers, consolidations, liquidations or acquisitions; dispose of assets; make distributions on or repurchase equity securities; engage in transactions with affiliates; and prohibits the Company, with certain exceptions, from engaging in any line of business not related to its current line of business. As of June 30, 2021, the Company was in compliance with all covenants.
As of June 30, 2021, the Revolving Credit Facility had unamortized deferred financing costs of $105, and was included in Other assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Total interest expense related to the Revolving Credit Facility for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 was $37 and $405, respectively, and $442 and $554, respectively, for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 24, 2020. Interest expense for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 primarily included the write-off of previously capitalized costs on the Revolving Credit Facility.
Convertible Notes
In March 2021, the Company issued $225,000 aggregate principal amount of 0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2028 (“Convertible Notes”) in a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933. The Company granted an option to the initial purchasers to purchase up to an additional $25,000 aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes to cover over-allotments, which was subsequently fully exercised during March 2021, resulting in a total issuance of $250,000 aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes. The Convertible Notes will mature on March 1, 2028, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased in certain circumstances. Upon conversion, the Company pays or delivers, as the case may be, cash, shares of Class A common stock or a combination of cash and shares of Class A common stock, at the Company's election.
The Convertible Notes are convertible at the option of the holders at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding December 1, 2027, only under the following circumstances: (1) during any fiscal quarter commencing after the fiscal quarter ending on June 30, 2021 (and only during such fiscal quarter), if the last reported sale price of the Company's Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share, for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during a period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on, and including, the last trading day of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter is greater than or equal to 130% of the conversion price for the Convertible Notes on each applicable trading day; (2) during the five business day period after any ten consecutive trading day period (the “measurement period”) in which the trading price (as defined in the Indenture) per one thousand dollar principal amount of the Convertible Notes for each trading day of the measurement period was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of Class A common stock and the conversion rate for the Convertible Notes on each such trading day; (3) if the Company calls such Convertible Notes for redemption, at any time prior to the close of business on the scheduled trading day immediately preceding the redemption date, but only with respect to the Convertible Notes called (or deemed called) for redemption; and (4) upon the occurrence of specified corporate events as set forth in the Indenture. On or after December 1, 2027, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, holders of the Convertible Notes may convert all or any portion of their Convertible Notes at any time, regardless of the foregoing circumstances.
Shake Shack Inc. shak-20210630_g2.jpg Form 10-Q | 15

The Convertible Notes had an initial conversion rate of 5.8679 shares of Class A common stock per one thousand dollar principal amount of Convertible Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $170.42 per share of Class A common stock.
Shake Shack may not redeem the Convertible Notes prior to March 6, 2025. The Company may redeem for cash all or any portion of the Convertible Notes, at the Company's option, on or after March 6, 2025 if the last reported sale price of Class A common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which the Company provides notice of redemption at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid special interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date.
In addition, if Shake Shack undergoes a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture governing the Convertible Notes), subject to certain conditions, holders may require it to repurchase for cash all or any portion of their Convertible Notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid special interest, if any, to, but excluding, the fundamental change repurchase date. In addition, following certain corporate events that occur prior to the maturity date of the Convertible Notes or if the Company delivers a notice of redemption in respect of some or all of the Convertible Notes, the Company will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate of the Convertible Notes for a holder who elects to convert the Convertible Notes in connection with such a corporate event or convert the Convertible Notes called (or deemed called) for redemption during the related redemption period, as the case may be.
Contemporaneously with the issuance of the Convertible Notes, Shake Shack Inc. entered into an intercompany note with SSE Holdings (“Intercompany Note”). SSE Holdings promises to pay Shake Shack Inc., for value received, the principal amount with interest of the Intercompany Note in March 2028. Shake Shack Inc. will exercise its right to convert the Intercompany Note to maintain at all times a one-to-one ratio between the number of common units, directly or indirectly, held by Shake Shack Inc. and the aggregate number of outstanding shares of common stock.
As of June 30, 2021, the Convertible Notes had a gross principal balance of $250,000 and a balance of $243,019, net of unamortized discount and debt issuance costs of $6,981. As of June 30, 2021, the unamortized balance of discount and debt issuance costs was recorded as a contra-liability and netted with Long-term debt on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and was being amortized as interest expense using the effective interest method. Total amortization expense was $257 and $343 respectively, for thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and was included in Interest expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss). In connection with the Convertible Notes, the Company also incurred consulting and advisory fees of $236 for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and was included in General and administrative expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss).
At June 30, 2021, the fair value of the Convertible Notes was approximately $237,188, based on external pricing data, including available quoted market prices of these instruments, and consideration of comparable debt instruments with similar interest rates and trading frequency, among other factors, and is classified as a Level 2 measurement within the fair value hierarchy.
NOTE 7: LEASES
Nature of Leases
Shake Shack currently leases all of its domestic Company-operated Shacks, the home office and certain equipment under various non-cancelable lease agreements that expire on various dates through 2038. The Company evaluates contracts entered into to determine whether the contract involves the use of property or equipment, which is either explicitly or implicitly identified in the contract. The Company evaluates whether it controls the use of the asset, which is determined by assessing whether substantially all economic benefits from the use of the asset is obtained, and whether the Company has the right to direct the use of the asset. If these criteria are met and the Company has identified a lease, the contract is accounted for under the requirements of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842.
Upon the possession of a leased asset, the Company determines its classification as an operating or finance lease. The real estate leases are classified as operating leases and most of the equipment leases are classified as finance leases. Generally, the real estate leases have initial terms ranging from 10 to 15 years and typically include two five-year renewal options. Renewal
Shake Shack Inc. shak-20210630_g2.jpg Form 10-Q | 16

options are generally not recognized as part of the right-of-use assets and lease liabilities as it is not reasonably certain at commencement date that the Company would exercise the options to extend the lease. The real estate leases typically provide for fixed minimum rent payments and/or contingent rent payments based upon sales in excess of specified thresholds. When the achievement of such sales thresholds are deemed to be probable, contingent rent is accrued in proportion to the sales recognized during the period. Fixed minimum rent payments are recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term from the date the Company takes possession of the leased property. Lease expense incurred before a Shack opens is recorded in Pre-opening costs on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss). Once a domestic Company-operated Shack opens, the straight-line lease expense and any contingent rent, if applicable, is recorded in Occupancy and related expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss). Many of the leases also require the Company to pay real estate taxes, common area maintenance costs and other occupancy costs which are included in Occupancy and related expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss).
As there are no explicit rates provided in the leases, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate in determining the present value of future lease payments. The discount rate used to measure the lease liability is derived from the average of the yield curves obtained from using the notching method and the recovery rate method. The most significant assumption in calculating the incremental borrowing rate is the Company's credit rating and is subject to judgment. The credit rating is determined by a comparison of the financial information of SSE Holdings to other public companies and then use their respective credit ratings to develop the Company's rate.
The Company expends cash for leasehold improvements to build out and equip the leased premises. Generally, a portion of the leasehold improvements and building costs are reimbursed by the landlords as landlord incentives pursuant to agreed-upon terms in the lease agreements. If obtained, landlord incentives usually take the form of cash, full or partial credits against future minimum or contingent rents otherwise payable by the Company, or a combination thereof. In most cases, landlord incentives are received after the Company takes possession of the property, as required milestones are met during the construction of the property. The Company includes these amounts in the measurement of the initial operating lease liability, which are also reflected as a reduction to the initial measurement of the right-of-use asset.

NOTE 8: NON-CONTROLLING INTERESTS
Shake Shack is the sole managing member of SSE Holdings and, as a result, consolidates the financial results of SSE Holdings. The Company reports a non-controlling interest representing the economic interest in SSE Holdings held by the other members of SSE Holdings. The Third Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement, as further amended, (the "LLC Agreement") of SSE Holdings provides that holders of LLC Interests may, from time to time, require SSE Holdings to redeem all or a portion of their LLC Interests for newly-issued shares of Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis. In connection with any redemption or exchange, the Company will receive a corresponding number of LLC Interests, increasing the total ownership interest in SSE Holdings. Changes in the ownership interest in SSE Holdings while the Company retains its controlling interest in SSE Holdings will be accounted for as equity transactions. As such, future redemptions or direct exchanges of LLC Interests in SSE Holdings by the other members of SSE Holdings will result in a change in ownership and reduce the amount recorded as non-controlling interest and increase additional paid-in capital.
The following table summarizes the ownership interest in SSE Holdings as of June 30, 2021 and December 30, 2020.

NOTE 10: INCOME TAXES
Shake Shack is the sole managing member of SSE Holdings and, as a result, consolidates the financial results of SSE Holdings. SSE Holdings is treated as a partnership for U.S. federal and most applicable state and local income tax purposes. As a partnership, SSE Holdings is not subject to U.S. federal and certain state and local income taxes. Any taxable income or loss generated by SSE Holdings is passed through to and included in the taxable income or loss of its members, including the Company, on a pro rata basis. The Company is subject to U.S. federal income taxes, in addition to state and local income taxes with respect to its allocable share of any taxable income or loss of SSE Holdings, as well as any stand-alone income or loss generated by Shake Shack Inc. The Company is also subject to withholding taxes in foreign jurisdictions.
The effective income tax rates for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020 were 32.4% and 25.3%, respectively. The increase was primarily driven by higher pre-tax book income resulting in income and higher foreign withholding taxes, partially offset by a reduction of a valuation allowance. Additionally, an increase in the Company's ownership interest in SSE Holdings increases its share of the taxable income (loss) of SSE Holdings. The weighted-average ownership interest in SSE Holdings was 93.0% and 92.3% for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020, respectively.
The effective income tax rates for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020 were 135.4% and 23.9%, respectively. The Company's weighted-average ownership interest in SSE Holdings was 93.0% and 92.0% for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020, respectively.
Deferred Tax Assets and Liabilities
During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021, the Company acquired an aggregate of 416,566 LLC Interests in connection with the redemption of LLC Interests, and activity relating to its stock compensation plan. The Company recognized a deferred tax asset in the amount of $10,608 associated with the basis difference in its investment in SSE Holdings upon acquisition of these LLC Interests. As of June 30, 2021, the total deferred tax asset related to the basis difference in the Company's investment in SSE Holdings was $135,176. However, a portion of the total basis difference will only reverse upon the eventual sale of its interest in SSE Holdings, which the Company expects would result in a capital loss. As of June 30, 2021, the total valuation allowance established against the deferred tax asset to which this portion relates was $1,470.
During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021, the Company also recognized $300 of deferred tax assets related to additional tax basis increases generated from expected future payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement and related deductions for imputed interest on such payments. Refer to "Tax Receivable Agreement," herein for additional information.
The Company evaluates the realizability of its deferred tax assets on a quarterly basis and establishes valuation allowances when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of a deferred tax asset may not be realized. As of June 30, 2021, the Company concluded, based on the weight of all available positive and negative evidence, that all of its deferred tax assets (except for those deferred tax assets described above relating to basis differences that are expected to result in a capital loss upon eventual sale of its interest in SSE Holdings, New York City UBT credits and certain foreign tax credits) are more likely than not to be realized. As such, no additional valuation allowance was recognized.
Shake Shack Inc. shak-20210630_g2.jpg Form 10-Q | 21

Tax Receivable Agreement
Pursuant to the Company's election under Section 754 of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code"), the Company expects to obtain an increase in its share of the tax basis in the net assets of SSE Holdings when LLC Interests are redeemed or exchanged by the other members of SSE Holdings. The Company plans to make an election under Section 754 of the Code for each taxable year in which a redemption or exchange of LLC Interest occurs. The Company intends to treat any redemptions and exchanges of LLC Interests as direct purchases of LLC Interests for U.S. federal income tax purposes. These increases in tax basis may reduce the amounts that would otherwise be paid in the future to various tax authorities. They may also decrease gains (or increase losses) on future dispositions of certain capital assets to the extent tax basis is allocated to those capital assets.
On February 4, 2015, the Company entered into a tax receivable agreement with certain of the then-existing members of SSE Holdings (the "Tax Receivable Agreement") that provides for the payment by the Company of 85% of the amount of any tax benefits that are actually realized, or in some cases are deemed to realize, as a result of (i) increases in the Company's share of the tax basis in the net assets of SSE Holdings resulting from any redemptions or exchanges of LLC Interests, (ii) tax basis increases attributable to payments made under the Tax Receivable Agreement, and (iii) deductions attributable to imputed interest pursuant to the Tax Receivable Agreement (the "TRA Payments"). The Company expects to benefit from the remaining 15% of any tax benefits that may actually realize. The TRA Payments are not conditioned upon any continued ownership interest in SSE Holdings or the Company. The rights of each member of SSE Holdings that is a party to the Tax Receivable Agreement, are assignable to transferees of their respective LLC Interests.
During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021, the Company acquired an aggregate of 29,601 LLC Interests in connection with the redemption of LLC Interests, which resulted in an increase in the tax basis of its investment in SSE Holdings subject to the provisions of the Tax Receivable Agreement. The Company recognized an additional liability in the amount of $1,094 for the TRA Payments due to the redeeming members, representing 85% of the aggregate tax benefits the Company expects to realize from the tax basis increases related to the redemption of LLC Interests, after concluding it was probable that such TRA Payments would be paid based on estimates of future taxable income. During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021, the Company made no payments to the parties to the Tax Receivable Agreement. During the twenty-six weeks ended June 24, 2020, payments of $6,643, inclusive of interest, were made to the parties to the Tax Receivable Agreement. As of June 30, 2021, the total amount of TRA Payments due under the Tax Receivable Agreement, was $234,049. Refer to Note 13, Commitments and Contingencies, for additional information relating to the liabilities under the Tax Receivable Agreement.

Shares of Class B common stock do not share in the earnings or losses of Shake Shack and are therefore not participating securities. As such, separate presentation of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share of Class B common stock under the two-class method has not been presented. However, shares of Class B common stock outstanding for the period are considered potentially dilutive shares of Class A common stock under application of the if-converted method and are included in the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share, except when the effect would be antidilutive.
The following table presents potentially dilutive securities, as of the end of the period, excluded from the computations of diluted earnings (loss) per share of Class A common stock for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020.

NOTE 13: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Lease Commitments
The Company is obligated under various operating leases for Shacks and the home office space, expiring in various years through 2038. Under certain of these leases, the Company is liable for contingent rent based on a percentage of sales in excess of specified thresholds and are typically responsible for its proportionate share of real estate taxes, common area maintenance costs and other occupancy costs. Refer to Note 7, Leases, for additional information.
As security under the terms of one of the leases, the Company is obligated under a letter of credit totaling $130 as of June 30, 2021, which expires in February 2026. Additionally, in September 2017, the Company entered into a letter of credit in conjunction with the new home office lease in the amount of $603, which expires in August 2021 and renews automatically for one-year periods through January 31, 2034.
Purchase Commitments
Purchase obligations include legally binding contracts, including commitments for the purchase, construction or remodeling of real estate and facilities, firm minimum commitments for inventory purchases, equipment purchases, marketing-related contracts, software acquisition/license commitments and service contracts. These obligations are generally short-term in nature and are recorded as liabilities when the related goods are received or services rendered. The Company also enters into long-term, exclusive contracts with certain vendors to supply food, beverages and paper goods, obligating the Company to purchase specified quantities.
Legal Contingencies
In March 2020, a claim was filed against Shake Shack alleging certain violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. At a mediation between the parties, the Company agreed to settle the matter with the plaintiff and other employees who elect to participate in the settlement for $619. As of June 30, 2021, a remaining accrual of $24 was recorded in Accrued expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets related to this matter.

In February 2018, a claim was filed against Shake Shack in California state court alleging certain violations of the California Labor Code. At a mediation between the parties, the Company agreed to settle the matter with the plaintiff and all other
24 | Shake Shack Inc. shak-20210630_g2.jpg Form 10-Q

California employees who elect to participate in the settlement for $1,200. The Company accrued for this matter during the thirteen weeks ended September 26, 2018, and paid in full as of June 30, 2021.

The Company is subject to various legal proceedings, claims and liabilities, such as employment-related claims and slip and fall cases, which arise in the ordinary course of business and are generally covered by insurance. As of June 30, 2021, the amount of the ultimate liability with respect to these matters was not material.
Liabilities under Tax Receivable Agreement
As described in Note 10, Income Taxes, the Company is a party to the Tax Receivable Agreement under which it is contractually committed to pay certain of the members of SSE Holdings 85% of the amount of any tax benefits that are actually realized, or in some cases are deemed to realize, as a result of certain transactions. The Company is not obligated to make any payments under the Tax Receivable Agreement until the tax benefits associated with the transactions that gave rise to the payments are realized. Amounts payable under the Tax Receivable Agreement are contingent upon, among other things, (i) generation of future taxable income over the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement and (ii) future changes in tax laws. If the Company does not generate sufficient taxable income in the aggregate over the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement to utilize the tax benefits, then it would not be required to make the related TRA Payments. During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2021 and June 24, 2020, the Company recognized liabilities totaling $1,094 and $313, respectively, relating to the obligations under the Tax Receivable Agreement, after concluding that it was probable that it would have sufficient future taxable income over the term of the Tax Receivable Agreement to utilize the related tax benefits. As of June 30, 2021 and December 30, 2020, the total obligations under the Tax Receivable Agreement were $234,049 and $232,954, respectively. There were no transactions subject to the Tax Receivable Agreement for which the Company did not recognize the related liability, as the Company concluded that it would have sufficient future taxable income to utilize all of the related tax benefits.

Recent Developments and Trends
We experienced continued positive momentum in the business during the second quarter of 2021, while continuing to support our Shack teams, our guests and the communities in which we operate, as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. We remain focused on the recovery of both sales and profitability across our Shack base and growth over the long term. Our strategic plan centers on the evolution of our Shack formats through physical and digital transformation with the objective of delivering a seamless, elevated guest experience.
Same-Shack sales grew 52.7% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2021, compared to up 5.7% in the first quarter of 2021. Sales improved across all regions, and was led by strength of in-Shack dining as well as healthy retention of our digital sales. Although suburban Shacks are performing closer to pre-pandemic levels than urban, we saw encouraging momentum across urban Shacks throughout the second quarter. We also reached a milestone in our urban recovery, with the reopening of the Union Station, DC and Grand Central Station, NYC Shacks in late June and early July, respectively. In the Southeast region, notably Texas, same-Shack sales are now above pre-pandemic levels; these markets continue to represent growth opportunities for the business across a variety of formats.
Average weekly sales were $72,000 in the second quarter of 2021, marking the highest level since the pandemic started, and up from $64,000 in the first quarter of 2021. Average weekly sales grew each month of the second quarter of 2021 and were $74,000 in fiscal June.

During the second quarter of 2021, total digital sales, including orders placed on the Shake Shack app, website and third-party delivery platforms, represented 47% of Shack sales. Even as the mix shifted with the return of in-Shack dining, retention of digital sales was approximately 80% in fiscal June when compared to fiscal January when digital sales peaked, with the Company-owned app channel performing higher than our digital average. During the second quarter of 2021 our new purchasers in Company-owned app and web channels grew 16.7% versus the first quarter of 2021, to 2.8 million total new purchasers since mid-March of 2020; continued investment across these channels is helping bring in new guests, even as in-Shack dining returns. We look forward to continuing to build on this strong foundation by offering our guests new and innovative ways to elevate their dining experience.

Licensing revenue for the second quarter of 2021 was $6.0 million, reflecting an increase of 164.2% versus the same period last year. Improvement was driven domestically by the return of air travel across airports and gradual lifting of capacity restrictions at major US stadiums; internationally, improvement was seen across the regions where COVID-related restrictions have been eased.
