1. Nature of Business

Mister Car Wash, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company"), is a Delaware corporation based in Tucson, Arizona and provider of conveyorized car wash services. The Company operates two location formats: Express Exterior Locations, which offer express exterior cleaning services, and Interior Cleaning Locations, which offer both express exterior cleaning services and interior cleaning services. As of December 31, 2022, the Company operated 436 car washes in 21 states. As of December 31, 2021, the Company operated 396 car washes in 21 states.

Beginning the end of March 2020 through the first part of April 2020, to ensure the safety of its team members and customers and in compliance with local regulations, the Company temporarily suspended operations at more than 300 of its locations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this period, safety protocols were upgraded, and we modified the operating model by temporarily removing all interior cleaning services from locations offering those services. The washes were closed for, on average, 34 days. As the Company opened washes, only exterior cleaning services were offered until July 2020 when interior clean services became available at select locations. In August 2020, all Interior Cleaning Locations were offering interior cleaning services again.

As a result of the temporary suspension of operations, the Company furloughed approximately 5,500 team members, reduced the pay for the remaining team members and amended nearly all leases to allow for up to three months of rent deferrals. None of the amendments resulted in remeasurements. As of December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, all back pay for reduced salaries and deferred lease payments had been repaid.

Forward Stock Split

In June 2021, the Company's board of directors (the "Board") and the stockholders of the Company approved a 96-for-1 forward stock split of the Company’s outstanding common stock, which was effected on June 16, 2021. All common stock and per share information has been retroactively adjusted to give effect to this forward stock split for all periods presented. Shares of common stock underlying outstanding stock options and other equity instruments were proportionately increased and the respective per share value and exercise prices, if applicable, were proportionately decreased in accordance with the terms of the agreements governing such securities. There were no changes to the par value per share of the Company’s common stock as a result of the forward stock split. Additionally, the Board and the stockholders of the Company approved an increase in the authorized shares of common stock to 1,000,000,000 shares.

Initial Public Offering

In June 2021, the Company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 43,125,000 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $15.00 per share.

The Company received gross proceeds of approximately $468,750 before deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and offering related issuance costs; the Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling stockholders. The consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2022, including share and per share amounts, include the effects of the IPO.
