McDonald’s Corp. drove a 2.4-percent increase in full-year net income to $5.59 billion, despite relatively flat results in the fourth quarter. Global same-store sales for the Dec. 31-ended fourth quarter decreased 0.1 percent, including a 1.4-percent decline in the United States, due to a higher average check, which was offset by negative comparable-store guest counts. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based chain operates or franchises more than 34,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries, including more than 14,000 in the United States.
