Memphis, Tennessee-Back Yard Burgers Inc. and YUM! Brands Inc. have terminated discussions with respect to any future license or sublicense of the Back Yard Burgers concept and trademarks to YUM! as part of a multibrand relationship between the two companies.

Back Yard Burgers had not included any such openings under the development agreement with YUM! in its 2004 expansion plans; therefore, the termination of the multibranding relationship does not change the company's expansion plans for 2004.
