Independent Auditors' Report ---------------------------- The Participants and the Administrative Committee Jack in the Box Inc. Easy$aver Plus Plan: We have audited the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits of the Jack in the Box Inc. Easy$aver Plus Plan (the Plan) as of December 31, 2001 and 2000, and the related statements of changes in net assets available for benefits for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2001. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Plan as of December 31, 2001 and 2000, and the changes in net assets available for benefits for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2001, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Our audits were performed for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The supplemental schedule of assets (held at end of year) is presented for the purpose of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic financial statements but is supplementary information required by the Department of Labor's Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. This supplemental schedule is the responsibility of the Plan's management. The supplemental schedule has been subject to the auditing procedures applied in the audits of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

JACK IN THE BOX INC. EASY$AVER PLUS PLAN NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. DESCRIPTION OF THE PLAN The following brief description of the Jack in the Box Inc. Easy$aver Plus Plan (the "Plan") is provided for general information purposes only. Participants should refer to the Plan document for a more complete description of the Plan's provisions. General - The Plan was established effective April 1, 1983 for the purpose of enabling employees to enhance their long-range financial security through regular savings with the benefit of Jack in the Box Inc. (the "Company") contributions. The benefits provided under the Plan are intended to supplement the retirement benefits provided under other plans sponsored by the Company. The Plan is subject to certain provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"); however, benefits under the Plan are not eligible for plan termination insurance provided by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation under Title IV of ERISA. The Company, as plan sponsor, makes contributions to the Plan and pays a portion of the administrative costs. Subject to certain restrictions, the plan sponsor also has the authority and responsibility for the general administration of the Plan. The Chairperson of the Company's Board of Directors is authorized to appoint the members of the Administrative Committee (the "Committee"). Mellon Bank, N.A., as the trustee, has the authority to hold, manage and protect the assets of the Plan in accordance with the provisions of the Plan. The recordkeeping administrative services are performed by Dreyfus Service Corporation. The Plan covers substantially all regular administrative, clerical, warehouse and distribution employees, and maintenance and equipment technicians of the Company who have completed one year of service with at least 1,000 hours of service, receive regular compensation from a payroll in the United States, and have attained age 21. Participation by eligible employees is voluntary. Contributions - Participants can elect to contribute to the Plan any amount from 2% to 12% of their compensation in 1% increments through payroll deductions not to exceed $10,500 in 2001 and 2000. This deferral is referred to as a pre-tax deferral, i.e., it is not subject to income taxes in the year deferred. The Company contributes 50% of the first 4% of compensation that a participant contributes to the Plan. 4

JACK IN THE BOX INC. EASY$AVER PLUS PLAN NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) 1. DESCRIPTION OF THE PLAN (continued) Vesting - Participants have a fully vested interest in their contributions plus actual earnings thereon. Company contributions vest at the rate of 25 percent for each year of service by the participant or fully vest upon attainment of age sixty-five, disability, death or termination of the Plan. The vested amount in a participant's account normally is distributed upon termination of employment or death. The amount of the Company's contribution that is not vested with respect to any participant is forfeited upon termination of employment, but is restored if the participant becomes an eligible employee within five years after termination. Forfeitures are used to reduce employer contributions. During the years ended December 31, 2001 and 2000 forfeitures in the amount of $49,000 and $15,000, respectively, were used to reduce employer contributions. As of December 31, 2001, plan assets included $1,943 of unallocated forfeitures which were invested in the Dreyfus Certus Stable Value Fund. Participant Accounts - As of December 31, 2001, the trustee maintains thirteen investment funds. Effective February 1, 2000 and July 25, 2001, the Crabbe Huson Special Fund and Crabbe Huson Equity Fund, respectively, were removed from the Plan and any remaining balances on those dates were transferred into the Dreyfus Certus Stable Value Fund. Effective September 11, 2001, the Dodge & Cox Stock Fund was added as a new investment option in the Plan. Participants may direct their contributions and Company matching contributions to be placed in any of the thirteen active investment funds allocated in multiples of 1% to any combination of these investment funds. Earnings derived from the assets of any investment fund are reinvested in the fund to which they relate. Participants may elect to transfer all or any multiple of 1% of the value of their accounts among funds on any market trading day. Pending investment of the assets in an investment fund, the trustee may temporarily make certain short-term investments. The Plan permits voluntary withdrawals by participants of their after-tax contributions and related earnings no more than once every six months. Because of certain Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") regulations, participants may, with Committee approval, withdraw pre-tax deferrals (exclusive of earnings for withdrawals after December 31, 1989), Company matching contributions (if the participant is fully vested) and related earnings only in the event of a financial hardship. 5

JACK IN THE BOX INC. EASY$AVER PLUS PLAN NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) 1. DESCRIPTION OF THE PLAN (continued) Participant Loans - The Plan permits participants to borrow from the investment funds. Loans are subject to such rules and regulations as the Committee may adopt, including but not limited to the following: (1) the amount of the loan is subject to certain limitations, (2) the loan bears interest at prevailing rates and repayments are to be made through payroll deductions, and (3) the payment of a processing fee is required. Amounts loaned to participants are treated as invested in such loans and, to the extent unpaid, do not generate any earnings other than interest thereon. Participants may borrow from their fund accounts a minimum of $1,000 up to a maximum equal to the lesser of $50,000 reduced by the highest outstanding loan balance in the previous 12 months, if any, or 50% of their account balance. Loan terms range from one to five years or up to 10 years for the purchase of a primary residence. Loans are secured by the balance in the participant's account and bear interest at a rate commensurate with local prevailing rates as determined by the Committee. Interest rates range from 8.5% to 11.5%. 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Basis of Accounting - The financial statements of the Plan are prepared using the accrual method of accounting. Investments - The Plan's common/collective trust funds are stated at fair value, which have been determined based on the unit values of the funds. The Plan's investments in common stocks and mutual funds are stated at fair value, which is determined by quoted market prices. Purchases and sales of securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. All receivables and liabilities are valued at cost, which approximates fair value. Administrative Expenses - Administrative expenses represent estimates of amounts incurred for recordkeeping services and other administrative type services. Administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2000 are displayed net of an entry to adjust previously recorded estimates of expense to actual. Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principals generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of net assets available for benefits and changes therein. Actual results could differ from those estimates. 6
