You agree to review these Terms periodically to ensure that you are familiar with the most recent version. TBC Corporation may, in its sole discretion, and at any time, discontinue this Platform or any part thereof, with or without notice, or may prevent your use of this Platform with or without notice to you.

In resolving a claim for arbitration, the arbitrator shall apply Florida law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. If the claimant can demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, TBC Corporation will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable, or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class, representative, or collective basis, or as a private attorney general on behalf of other persons similarly situated, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor TBC Corporation shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties. Disputes regarding the arbitrability of any claim shall be resolved by the arbitrator.
THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU MAY NOT BRING ANY CLAIM AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHER SIMILARLY SITUATED PERSONS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.

(1) This number is an historic financial performance representation reflecting the average of franchisee net income on an annual basis for the 2020 calendar year of the top quartile of all Midas Shop outlets (in terms of total income) that operated for at least 12 consecutive months as of December 31, 2020, and who furnished financial data to us for the year that we believe to be reliable (the “2020 Top Quartile Stores”). The 2020 Top Quartile Stores include 60 outlets, of which 28 (or 47 percent) exceed the average net income of that group. The information was compiled using actual reported sales of our existing U.S. Midas Shop outlets during the year 2020 based on monthly sales reports submitted to us by Midas franchisees for the purpose of computing royalty fees and other financial data of these shops that was submitted to us. We have not independently audited or verified the accuracy of these numbers, and we do not know if these numbers have been verified or audited on behalf of the franchisees. A new franchisee’s results may differ from the represented performance. Click here to see Item 19 of the Midas 2021 FDD for further information.

The 2019/2020 Top Quartile Stores include 228 outlets, of which 72 (or 32 percent) exceed the average total revenues of that group. The information was compiled using actual reported sales of our existing U.S. Midas Shop outlets during the years 2019 and 2020 based on monthly sales reports submitted to us by Midas franchisees for the purpose of computing royalty fees.
