The company's net income rose significantly to $41.3M (NYSE: MMM ) from the previous year's $30.7M, while adjusted EBITDA was reported at $51.8M.

The franchise segment of the company showed notable growth, with revenues increasing by 21.6% to $98.2M. This was largely due to an $8.0M increase in franchise royalty revenue, fee increases, National Advertising Fund revenue, equipment placement revenue, and HVAC unit sales to franchisees.

In addition to the franchise segment, corporate-owned stores and equipment segments also posted solid growth with revenue increases of 11.8% and 6.1% respectively.

The company's strong performance has led to a surge in its share price, which jumped 8.75% in premarket trading to reach $60.

Looking ahead, Planet Fitness anticipates around a 14% full-year revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA growth of +18%. The company also plans to continue expanding its global presence, having added 26 new outlets in the third quarter alone, bringing its total to 2,498.
