             The information in this Report, including the exhibits hereto, is

Report shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement
pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The
furnishing of the information in this Report is not intended to, and does not,
constitute a determination or admission that the information in this Report is

investment decision with respect to any security of Triarc Companies, Inc. 
("Triarc" or the "Company"), Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc. ("ARG"), or its 
subsidiary Arby's, LLC.

             As previously announced, ARG and Arby's Restaurant Holdings, LLC,
an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Triarc ("ARH" and, together with ARG, the
"Borrowers") entered into a Commitment Letter, dated as of May 27, 2005 (the
"Commitment Letter") with Citicorp North America, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets
Inc., Bank of America, N.A., Banc of America Securities LLC and Credit Suisse
(collectively, the "Lenders") relating to a $700 million senior secured credit

million Senior Revolving Credit Facility (with a $30 million subfacility for
letters of credit) (the "Bank Financing") to be made available by the Lenders to
the Borrowers to be used in connection with the acquisition of the RTM
Restaurant Group ("RTM") (the "RTM Acquisition"), the payment of certain related
fees and expenses and other corporate purposes. In connection with the Bank
Financing, the Borrowers intend to provide potential lenders with the ARG
financial statements listed below (the "ARG Financial Statements").

             The ARG Financial Statements include the following:

             o     Audited Consolidated Balance Sheets as of December 28, 2003
                   and January 2, 2005;

             o     Audited Consolidated Income Statements for the fiscal years

             o     Independent Auditors' Report.

             The foregoing ARG Financial Statements are being furnished for
purposes of Regulation FD disclosure. Triarc will file audited historical
consolidated financial statements of ARG following completion of the RTM
Acquisition as required by the relevant Form 8-K rules. No assurances can be
given that the RTM Acquisition will be consummated. If the RTM Acquisition is
consummated, actual results may vary materially from the expectations contained

             The statements in this Form 8-K, including in Exhibit 99.1, and
other information concerning possible or assumed future results of operations of
Triarc, ARG, Arby's, LLC or RTM and statements preceded by, followed by, or that
include the words "may," "believes," "plans," "expects," "anticipates" or the
negation thereof, or similar expressions, constitute "forward-looking
statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act
of 1995 (the "Reform Act"). All statements that address operating performance,
events or developments that are expected or anticipated to occur in the future,
including statements relating to revenue growth, earnings per share growth or
statements expressing general optimism about future operating results, are
forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Reform Act. These
forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations, speak only as
of the date of this Form 8-K and are susceptible to a number of risks,
uncertainties and other factors. Our actual results, performance and
achievements, and those of ARG, Arby's, LLC or RTM may differ materially from
any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such
forward-looking statements. For those statements, we claim the protection of the
safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Reform Act. Many
important factors could affect such future results and could cause those results
to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements
contained herein. Such factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

                   impact of competitors' new units on sales by Arby's(R)

             o     development costs;

             o     advertising and promotional efforts;

             o     the existence or absence of positive or adverse publicity;

             o     new product and concept development by the Company and its
                   competitors, and market acceptance of such new product
                   offerings and concepts;

             o     changes in consumer tastes and preferences, including changes
                   resulting from concerns over nutritional or safety aspects of
                   beef, poultry, french fries or other foods or the effects of
                   food-borne illnesses such as "mad cow disease" and avian
                   influenza or "bird flu";

             o     changes in spending patterns and demographic trends;

             o     the business and financial viability of key franchisees;

             o     the timely payment of franchisee obligations due to the

                   restaurants in accordance with their development commitments,
                   including the ability of franchisees to finance restaurant

             o     delays in opening new restaurants or completing remodels;

             o     anticipated or unanticipated restaurant closures by the
                   Company and its franchisees;

             o     the Company's ability to identify, attract and retain
                   potential franchisees with sufficient experience and
                   financial resources to develop and operate Arby's

             o     changes in business strategy or development plans, and the
                   willingness of the Company's franchisees to participate in
                   its strategy;

             o     business abilities and judgment of the Company's and its
                   franchisees' management and other personnel;

                   and to its franchisees;

                   distribution of supplies of food, equipment and other
                   products to Arby's restaurants at competitive rates and in
                   adequate amounts, and the potential financial impact of any
                   interruptions in such distribution;

             o     changes in commodity (including beef), labor, supplies and
                   other operating costs and availability and cost of insurance;

             o     adverse weather conditions;

             o     availability, terms (including changes in interest rates) and

             o     changes in legal or self-regulatory requirements, including
                   franchising laws, accounting standards, environmental laws,
                   overtime rules, minimum wage rates and taxation rates;

             o     the costs, uncertainties and other effects of legal,
                   environmental and administrative proceedings;

             o     the impact of general economic conditions on consumer
                   spending or securities investing, including a slower consumer
                   economy and the effects of war or terrorist activities;

             o     the Company's ability to identify appropriate acquisition
                   targets in the future and to successfully integrate any
                   future acquisitions into its existing operations; and

             o     other risks and uncertainties affecting the Company referred
                   to in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year
                   ended January 2, 2005 (see especially "Item 1. Business--Risk
                   Factors" and "Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of
                   Financial Condition and Results of Operations") and in its
                   other current and periodic filings with the Securities and
                   Exchange Commission, all of which are difficult or impossible
                   to predict accurately and many of which are beyond the
                   Company's control.

             All future written and oral forward-looking statements attributable
to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their
entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to above. New risks
and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to
predict these events or how they may affect us. We assume no obligation to
update any forward-looking statements after the date of this Form 8-K as a
result of new information, future events or developments, except as

required by federal securities laws. In addition, it is our policy generally not
to make any specific projections as to future earnings, and we do not endorse
any projections regarding future performance that may be made by third parties.
