Jun 8, 2007

McDonald's Corporation announced today that global comparable sales rose 8.7% in May. Systemwide sales for McDonald's restaurants worldwide increased 11.9% for the month, 10.0% in constant currencies.

McDonald's Chief Executive Officer Jim Skinner said, "May marks another month of strong sustained sales and shows how well we are providing solutions for today's busy lifestyles, with the convenience and value that customers expect from McDonald's. We've re-energized our worldwide business with new food choices, redesigned restaurants and relevant marketing."

In the U.S., McDonald's successful Shrek the Thirdâ„¢ promotion, popular breakfast business and new products contributed to comparable sales growing 7.4% in May.

In Europe, comparable sales rose 8.9%. France, the U.K., Germany and nearly all other markets delivered positive results. Customers responded enthusiastically to the recent launch of Chicken Selects and Snack Wrap in Germany plus limited-time offerings of premium chicken and beef sandwiches in France and the U.K.

Robust sales in Japan, China, Australia and a majority of other markets in Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa fueled the 10.2% comparable sales increase. Extended hours, breakfast, and relevant menu offerings continued to contribute to the segment's results.

Skinner added, "Around the world, demand for McDonald's continues to grow as we now serve 6 million more customers every day than we did in 2002. We are working to attract more customers, more often, through innovation, added convenience and greater menu choice to capture a larger share of the growing eating-out market."

   --   Comparable sales represent sales at all McDonald's restaurants in
        operation at least thirteen months including those temporarily
        closed, excluding the impact of currency translation.  Some of the
        reasons restaurants may be temporarily closed include road
        construction, reimaging or remodeling, and natural disasters.
        Management reviews the increase or decrease in comparable sales
        compared with the same period in the prior year to assess business
   --   Information in constant currency is calculated by translating
        current year results at prior year average exchange rates.
   --   Systemwide sales include sales at all McDonald's restaurants,
        including those operated by the Company, franchisees and affiliates.
        Management believes Systemwide sales information is useful in
        analyzing the Company's revenues because franchisees and affiliates
        pay rent and/or royalties that generally are based on a percent of
        sales with specified minimum rent payments.
   --   The number of weekdays, weekend days and timing of holidays can
        impact our reported comparable sales.  For the month of May 2007,
        this calendar shift/trading day adjustment consisted of one more
        Thursday and one less Monday compared with May 2006.  The resulting
        adjustment varied around the world, ranging from approximately
        positive 0.2% to 0.4%.
