Arcos Dorados Holdings Inc was incorporated on December 9, 2010 under the laws of the British Virgin Islands as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Arcos Dorados Limited, the prior holding company for the Arcos Dorados business. The Company operates its McDonald's-branded restaurants under two basic structures: Company-operated restaurants operated by it and franchised restaurants operated by franchisees. As of December 31, 2013, it operated or franchised 2062 McDonald's branded restaurants, which represented 7.2% of McDonald's total franchised restaurants worldwide. It divides its operations into four geographical divisions: Brazil; the Caribbean division, consisting of Aruba, Colombia, Curaçao, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, the U.S. Virgin Islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas and Venezuela; North Latin America division, or NOLAD, consisting of Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama; and South Latin America division, or SLAD, consisting of Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. It conducts substantially all its business through its indirect, wholly-owned Dutch subsidiary Arcos Dorados B.V.
