1 See Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results for further detail of Special Items. Special Items in 2016 primarily related to gains associated with Pizza Hut U.S. refranchising, costs associated with the agreement reached in 2015 with KFC U.S. franchisees and costs associated with the planned separation of our China business and the Yum! recapitalization. Special Items in 2015 are primarily related to a non-cash charge associated with refranchising our Mexico business.

 

Note: All comparisons are versus the same period a year ago. Effective January 2016, the Company's India business integrated its three restaurant brands into our global KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell Divisions. Prior year figures have been restated to present comparable results.

 

Full-year GAAP operating profit growth guidance is not provided due to our inability to forecast when gains and losses related to refranchising transactions classified as Special Items will occur, as the timing of these transactions is often outside our control, and the resulting gains and losses are dependent upon future market conditions. 2016 core operating profit growth guidance assumes no separation of the China business.

 

GREG CREED COMMENTS

Greg Creed, CEO, said "Yum! Brands delivered second-quarter core operating profit growth of 7% and EPS growth, excluding Special Items, of 9%. Given our strong first-half results and current trends in China, I'm pleased to raise our full-year core operating profit growth forecast to at least 14% from 12% previously. I'm particularly pleased with the continued sales momentum at KFC China, which delivered better-than-expected same-store sales growth of 3%. This represents our fourth-consecutive quarter of positive same-store sales growth at KFC China despite the second quarter being our most difficult of the year from a historical sales overlap standpoint. Importantly, our China Division is off to a good start in the third quarter for both KFC and Pizza Hut Casual Dining, including a return to positive same-store sales at Pizza Hut Casual Dining in recent weeks.

Outside of China, challenging industry conditions in the U.S. contributed to soft sales results. However, our three brand divisions in the aggregate delivered core operating profit growth largely in-line with our expectations and remain on track to deliver against their full-year core operating profit growth targets. We're confident in our plans to drive second-half sales improvement led by a continued focus on innovation, value and our core products.

This is a transformational year for our company as we remain on track to finalize the separation of our China business with a targeted completion date around October 31, 2016, ultimately creating two powerful, independent, focused growth companies. Our capital structure is fully in place and we plan to return a significant amount of capital to shareholders both prior to and after the spin. I look forward to sharing additional details on the transformative initiatives we are undertaking as we become a more heavily franchised company at our New York investor conference on Tuesday, October 11th."

  • Operating profit was negatively impacted by an additional $14 million in closures and impairment expense versus prior year, as well as a $4 million expense related to our RGM convention. These expenses were partially offset by a benefit from recent value-added tax reform in China, which went into effect on May 1, 2016.
  • Foreign currency translation negatively impacted operating profit by $7 million.
  • Consistent with prior years, China Division's second quarter includes March, April and May results.

  • Taco Bell Division system sales increased 2%, driven by 3% unit growth and partially offset by a 1% decline in same-store sales.
  • Taco Bell Division opened 48 new restaurants; 88% of these new units were opened by franchisees.
  • Restaurant margin was 22.3%, a decrease of 0.6 percentage points driven by higher labor costs and store level investments. This was partially offset by favorable commodities pricing.
  • Operating margin increased 0.6 percentage points driven by new-unit development and reduced G&A.

SPECIAL ITEMS / SHARE REPURCHASE / RECAPITALIZATION UPDATE

  • During the first quarter of 2015, we reached an agreement with our KFC U.S. franchisees that gave us brand marketing control, as well as an accelerated path to expanded menu offerings, improved assets and an enhanced customer experience. In connection with this agreement, we recognized a Special Items charge of $8 million during the quarter, primarily related to the funding of investments for new back-of-house equipment for franchisees.
  • During the quarter, we incurred a Special Items charge of $10 million for costs related to the planned separation of our China business and the Yum! recapitalization.
  • During the quarter, we refranchised 82 units outside of China, primarily related to Pizza Hut U.S., for proceeds of $83 million. We recorded refranchising gains of $53 million in Special Items.
  • Year-to-date through July 12, 2016, we repurchased 31.4 million shares totaling $2.4 billion at an average price of $77. Since we announced our intention to separate the China business, we have repurchased approximately $3.3 billion of shares at an average price of $76, reducing our share count by 42.9 million shares. This is part of our previously announced plan to return $6.2 billion of capital to shareholders in connection to the separation of our China business.
  • We have completed our recapitalization consisting of $6.9 billion of new debt in May and June 2016; $4.6 billion of this new debt was issued subsequent to the end of our second quarter.

The forward-looking statements included in this announcement are only made as of the date of this announcement and we disclaim any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement to reflect subsequent events or circumstances. Numerous factors could cause our actual results and events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: whether we are able to return capital to shareholders at the times and in the amounts currently anticipated, if at all, as well as the corresponding costs of borrowing to fund such capital return as well as other costs; whether the separation of the Yum! Brands and Yum! China businesses is completed, as expected or at all, and the timing of any such separation; whether the operational and strategic benefits of the separation can be achieved; whether the costs and expenses of the separation can be controlled within expectations, including potential tax costs; as well as other risks. In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently believe to be immaterial could affect the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results
(amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") throughout this document, the Company has provided non-GAAP measurements which present earnings before Special Items and Operating profit on a basis before Special Items and foreign currency translation ("Core Operating Profit"). Included in Special Items are gains/(losses) associated with the costs associated with the planned spin-off of the China business and YUM recapitalization, costs associated with the KFC U.S. Acceleration Agreement, certain refranchising initiatives and the impact of redeeming the Little Sheep noncontrolling interest. These amounts are described in (c), (d), (e) and (f) in the accompanying notes.

The Company excludes Special Items and foreign currency translation impacts for the purposes of evaluating performance internally. Special Items are not included in any of our externally reported segment results. Additionally, we believe the elimination of the foreign currency translation impact provides better year-to-year comparability without the distortion of foreign currency fluctuations, which is quantified by translating current year results at prior year average exchange rates. These non-GAAP measurements are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, the Company believes that the presentation of earnings before Special Items and Core Operating Profit provide additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations, excluding items in the quarters and years to date ended June 11, 2016 and June 13, 2015 that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Summary of Results, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets

and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows

(amounts in millions)

(unaudited)

 
(a) Amounts presented as of and for the quarter and year to date ended June 11, 2016 are preliminary.
 
(b) Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity (income) loss from investments in unconsolidated affiliates.
 
(c) In connection with our planned separation of the YUM China business into an independent, publicly-traded company and the related recapitalization of YUM, we incurred $10 million and $19 million of costs in the quarter and year to date ended June 11, 2016, respectively, which were recorded in General and administrative ("G&A") expenses.
 
(d) During the first quarter of 2015, we reached an agreement with our KFC U.S. franchisees that gave us brand marketing control as well as an accelerated path to improved assets and customer experience. In connection with this agreement we recognized Special Item charges of $8 million for both the quarters ended June 11, 2016 and June 13, 2015. During the years to date ended June 11, 2016 and June 13, 2015, we recognized Special Item charges of $17 million and $10 million, respectively. The majority of these costs were recorded in Franchise and license expense. These charges primarily related to the funding of investments for new back-of-house equipment for franchisees.
 
(e) We have historically recorded refranchising gains and losses in the U.S. as Special Items due to the scope of our refranchising program and the volatility in associated gains and losses. Beginning in 2016, we are also including all international refranchising gains and losses, excluding China, in Special Items. The inclusion in Special Items of these additional international refranchising gains and losses is the result of the anticipated size and volatility of refranchising initiatives outside the U.S. that will take place in connection with our previously announced plans to have 96% franchise ownership by the end of 2017. During the quarters ended June 11, 2016 and June 13, 2015 we recorded a refranchising gain of $53 million and a refranchising loss of $72 million, respectively, that have been reflected as Special Items. During the years to date ended June 11, 2016 and June 13, 2015 we recorded a refranchising gain of $56 million and a refranchising loss of $65 million, respectively, that have been reflected as Special Items.
 
The second quarter 2016 refranchising gains relate primarily to refranchising Pizza Hut restaurants in the U.S.
 

In 2010 we refranchised our then-remaining Company-operated restaurants in Mexico. To the extent we owned real estate related to these restaurants, we did not sell the real estate, but instead leased it to the franchisee. During the quarter ended June 13, 2015 we initiated plans to sell this real estate and determined it was held for sale in accordance with GAAP. The sales price we expected to receive for this real estate exceeded its book value. However, the sale of the real estate represented a substantial liquidation of our Mexican operations under GAAP. Accordingly, we were required to include accumulated translation losses associated with our Mexican business within our held for sale impairment evaluations. As such, we recorded a $68 million non-cash charge to Refranchising Loss, consisting of losses of $36 million and $32 million for our KFC and Pizza Hut Divisions, respectively. This loss represented the excess of the sum of the book value of the real estate and related assets, an insignificant amount of goodwill and our accumulated translation losses over the expected sales price. We subsequently sold this real estate in 2015.

 
(f)

During the quarter ended June 11, 2016, the Little Sheep founding shareholders exercised their redemptive rights and sold their remaining 7% Little Sheep ownership interest to YUM. The difference between the purchase price and the carrying value of this redeemable noncontrolling interest was recorded as an $8 million loss attributable to noncontrolling interest, which was reflected as a Special Item consistent with the 2012 Little Sheep acquisition gain and subsequent impairments.
