Papa John's says same-store sales rose 5.3% in Q1 in North America despite coronavirus-related business disruption
Papa John's International Inc. said Tuesday that same-store sales for the first quarter rose 5.3% system-wide in North America, and 2.3% at international locations. The growth came despite a disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The company saw some temporary closures globally, though it says stores are fully operating in North America. "Although March sales in North America were negatively impacted by the cancellation of large gatherings, including major sporting events, our international and domestic businesses have performed well, as customers and communities rely on us and others in the food delivery industry," said Rob Lynch, chief executive of Papa John's. For the period from Feb. 24 through Mar. 29, same-store sales rose 3.6% in the Americas and slipped 0.6% internationally. Papa John's has withdrawn its guidance due to uncertainty surrounding the outbreak. Shares of the pizza chain's stock climbed 5.8% in Tuesday trading, but have fallen nearly 17% for the year to date. The S&P 500 index is down 18.5% for the period.

Fed establishes new repo facility with foreign central banks
The Federal Reserve on Tuesday said it was establishing a temporary repo facility for foreign central banks that will help make U.S. dollars available in their jurisdictions. In the new facility, the central banks will be able to temporarily exchange their U.S. Treasurys held at the Fed for U.S. dollars. "This facility should help support the smooth functioning of the U.S. Treasury market by providing an alternative temporary source of U.S. dollars other than sales of securities in the open market," the Fed said. It should also ease strains in global U.S. dollar funding markets, the central bank said. All central banks and foreign monetary authorities with accounts at the Fed are eligible.

Exclusive: American Airlines to retire more jets, including vintage 737s, in coronavirus downturn -sources
American Airlines Group Inc is set to sharply increase the number of jets it is planning to retire beyond its announced plans as it accelerates a fleet transformation to respond to the coronavirus crisis, people familiar with the matter said. Some 4,700 jets have been parked globally as airlines slash operations due to travel restrictions, according to Ascend by Cirium fleet data, and American's decision confirms industry speculation that many of those older jets will not fly again. In addition to the retirement of 34 Boeing Co 757s and 17 Boeing 767s announced just two weeks ago, American now plans to also sunset a batch of 76 Boeing 737s it acquired between 1999 and 2001, nine Airbus SE A330-300s and 20 Embraer E190s, the people said.
