Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure.

The spread of COVID-19 has impacted restaurant operations of Kura Sushi USA, Inc. (the "Company") which currently has 25 locations in five states. Several local governments have issued notices regarding restaurant closures and as of the end of business today, March 18, 2020, all 25 restaurants will be closed through at least March 31, 2020.

Additionally, the Company is withdrawing its financial guidance for the fiscal year 2020 ending August 31, 2020. The Company plans to provide an update on the business during its earnings call for the fiscal second quarter ended February 29, 2020.

Currently, the Company has approximately $30 million in available cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding debt. Based on discussions with the Company's controlling stockholder, Kura Sushi, Inc. ("Kura Japan"), the Company anticipates being able to obtain strategic, operational, financial and other support from Kura Japan during this period as may be mutually agreed upon by the Company and Kura Japan.
