1 The system-wide sales represent the gross sales of all studios. The system-wide sales include sales of franchisees that are not sales realized by us under GAAP. Although we do not report sales from franchisees as revenue and such sales are not included in our consolidated financial statements, this operating metric relates to our revenue as we receive approximately 7% and 2% of sales from franchisees as license revenue and marketing funds, respectively. that this operational metric helps understand how we generate our license and marketing fund income and that it is important in evaluating our performance. System-wide sales growth is being driven by new studio openings and increasing sales in the same branches. Management reviews system-wide sales monthly, which enables us to assess changes in our franchise income, overall studio performance, the health of our brands, and the strength of our market position compared to competitors.
2 Store sales equal refer to comparisons of sales over the period for the studio basis. We define the same in-store sales base to include studios in North America that have been open for at least 13 calendar months as of the measurement date. A transfer of ownership of a studio does not affect this figure. We measure the sales of the same stores based solely on the monthly sales reported by the franchisees. This measure highlights the performance of existing studios but eliminates the impact of new studio openings. Management reviews sales from the same stores to assess the health of the franchise studios.
3 AUV is calculated by dividing the sales during the respective period for all studios to be measured by the number of studios to be measured. For studios that are at least 6 months old at the beginning of the respective quarter, the quarterly run rate AUV is calculated from the quarterly AUV multiplied by four. The monthly AUV is calculated from the monthly AUV multiplied by twelve, for studios that are at least 6 months old at the beginning of the respective month. AUV growth is primarily driven by changes in sales in the same stores and is also influenced by new studio openings. Management reviews AUV to assess studio economics.
