FULL-YEAR 2008 OUTLOOK

The company raised its full-year 2008 EPS forecast from $1.82 to $1.85 per share, or at least 10% growth. This is prior to significant one-time gain items described later in this release.

David C. Novak, Chairman and CEO, said, "I am pleased to report that we ended our first decade as a public company in 2007 by once again demonstrating the underlying power of our global portfolio of leading restaurant brands. Fueled by strong 2007 same-store-sales growth of 3% and continued profitable international expansion, including record new-restaurant openings of 471 in mainland China and 852 in YRI, we achieved 15% EPS growth. This marks the sixth straight year of delivering on our commitment of at least 10% annual EPS growth.

"Importantly for shareholders, our China and YRI divisions continued to generate outstanding operating results, with full-year same-store-sales growth of +10% and +6%, and operating profit growth of +30% and +18%, respectively. With such powerful results, we generated record cash from operating activities of nearly $1.6 billion and returned an all-time high of $1.7 billion to our shareholders through share repurchases and dividends. Additionally, we announced in October our plan to substantially increase the amount of share buybacks over the next two years, repurchasing a total of up to $4 billion of the company's outstanding common stock.

"As we enter our second decade, we expect 2008 to be another excellent year. We are confident we can continue to build on our track record of growing EPS at least 10% each year by generating 20% operating profit growth from our China Division, 10% from our YRI Division and 5% from our U.S. businesses. Our teams, strategies and financial strength have never been better, and we are totally focused on delivering exceptional results for our shareholders.

"Shareholders should expect us to continue building consistent value by differentiating our global portfolio of brands and driving profitable global expansion through our four key strategies: building leading brands in China in every significant category; driving aggressive international expansion and building strong brands everywhere; dramatically improving U.S. brand positions, consistency and returns; and driving industry-leading, long-term shareholder and franchisee value."

CHINA DIVISION COMMENTS

* For 2007, we opened a record 471 new units in mainland China, further strengthening our leadership position in China's rapidly growing restaurant category. In 2006, we opened 364 new restaurants in mainland China.

* Mainland China's fourth-quarter same-store-sales growth of 17% was the best ever for the market, while simultaneously achieving record-level unit growth in 2007.

* For the fourth-quarter and full-year 2007, the slight decrease in restaurant margin percentage was better than anticipated, as record same-store-sales growth largely offset unusually high food-cost inflation. We expect high food-cost inflation to continue into the first half of 2008 and moderate later in the year.

* Foreign currency conversion continued to provide benefit in both fourth-quarter and full-year operating profit, $6 million and $19 million, respectively.

YRI DIVISION COMMENTS

* For the fourth quarter, YRI's operating profit growth was negatively impacted by 5 percentage points due to incremental investments in KFC sales-growth initiatives, incremental incentive compensation, and selected, market-level organizational restructuring.

* For 2007, we opened a record 852 new restaurants in our YRI Division, 94% of which were opened by our franchise and joint-venture partners. This is the ninth consecutive year of at least 3% year-over-year YRI net unit growth. YRI continues to build an enviable development track record.

* YRI same-store-sales growth was strong at +5% and +6% for fourth-quarter and full-year 2007, respectively.

* Franchise fees, a key driver of our high-return business, passed the $500 million mark during 2007 with full-year growth of 15%.

* The strength of foreign currencies versus the U.S. dollar continued to provide benefit in both fourth-quarter and full-year operating profit, $10 million and $24 million, respectively.

U.S. BUSINESS COMMENTS

* Fourth-quarter same-store-sales growth was +1%, driven by broad-based growth in our franchise business.

* Taco Bell company same-store sales performance improved to flat in Q4 after declines in the first three quarters of 2007.

* Restaurant margin percentage declined due to unusually high food-cost inflation, with full-year commodity-cost inflation of $44 million, partially mitigated by pricing. Nearly half of the commodity inflation occurred in the fourth quarter.

* As anticipated, fourth-quarter and full-year 2007 operating margin percentage improved due to higher franchise fees and reduced G&A expense from increased franchise ownership.

CORPORATE AND UNALLOCATED G&A EXPENSES

For the fourth quarter, the $31 million year-over-year increase in corporate and unallocated G&A expenses was mainly due to higher annual incentive compensation, investments in strategic projects, and litigation-related expenses.

TAX RATE

Tax rates for fourth-quarter and full-year 2007 were lower than prior year due to recognition of foreign-tax credit benefits.

U.S. REFRANCHISING UPDATE

During 2007, a total of 304 company-owned U.S. restaurants were sold to franchisees. Since the beginning of 2006, our U.S. refranchising program has reduced the percentage of company ownership from 26% to 22% at the end of 2007. As we previously announced in our 2008 guidance, we are expanding our refranchising of U.S. company-owned restaurants, with company ownership to potentially reach below 10% by year-end 2010.

SHAREHOLDER PAYOUTS

During the fourth quarter of 2007, we purchased 16 million shares at an average purchase price of $37.03, or a total of $603 million. For the year, we purchased 42 million shares at an average purchase price of $33.66, or a total of $1.4 billion, reducing average diluted shares outstanding by 4%, the third consecutive year with share reduction as a result of substantial share buybacks. Over the past two years, the company's share repurchases reduced average diluted share count by 9%, at an average cost per share of $29.31.

For 2008, we expect to return over $2 billion to shareholders through both dividends and significant share buybacks.

FULL-YEAR 2008 UPDATE

* EPS of $1.85 or at least 10% growth. This is prior to the significant one-time gain items outlined below.

* For full-year 2008, we expect a one-time gain from the sale of our minority interest in KFC Japan during the first quarter, as well as gains from global refranchising. We expect these gains will be partially offset by charges relating to G&A productivity initiatives and realignment of resources, as well as investments in our U.S. brands to drive stronger growth. The net impact of the gains and charges is expected to generate approximately $50 million in pre-tax profit, or about $0.06 full-year EPS, which is not included in our full-year 2008 guidance of $1.85.

* As we previously communicated during our annual investor conference on December 12, 2007, we expect the expansion of U.S. refranchising will generate the following financial impacts over a three-year period: pretax sales proceeds (net of investment) of about $1.1 billion, U.S. margin improvement of about 2.5%, neutral to slightly dilutive to U.S. operating profit, YUM ROIC improvement of about 3 percentage points, net refranchising gains of about $350 million, and EPS accretion of about 2%.

For our detailed full-year 2008 guidance and supplemental guidance, please refer online to http://www.yum.com/investors/news.asp and http://investors.yum.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=117941&p=irol-newsEarnings.

Q1 2008 EPS UPDATE

In the first quarter of 2008, we expect the following one-time impacts: pre-tax gain of approximately $87 million from the sale of our minority interest in KFC Japan; charges of up to $10 million before taxes related to G&A productivity initiatives and realignment of resources to drive stronger U.S. brand growth; and expected refranchising losses of about $20 million.
YUM! ONGOING EARNINGS GROWTH MODEL (UPDATED)

* China Division operating-profit growth of 20%. This growth is driven largely by new-unit development in mainland China. Our key metric for mainland China is system-sales growth with an annual target of +20% driven by at least 425 new-restaurant openings.

* YRI Division operating-profit growth of 10%. This growth is driven mainly by new-unit development, measured by system-sales growth of at least 5% (3% to 4% unit growth and 2% to 3% same-store-sales growth) including 750 new-restaurant openings.

* U.S. operating-profit growth of 5% with same-store-sales growth of 2% to 3% and leverage of the G&A infrastructure.

* EPS growth of at least 10%. This assumes operating profit performance from our three lines of business as previously noted with additional benefit from reduction in shares outstanding due to substantial share buybacks.

Notes to the Consolidated Summary of Results, Consolidated Balance
Sheets and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows
(amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

(a) Percentages may not recompute due to rounding.

(b) Amounts presented as of and for the quarter and year ended
December 29, 2007 are preliminary.

(c) On May 17, 2007, the Company announced that its Board of Directors
approved a two-for-one split of the Company's outstanding shares
of Common Stock. The stock split was effected in the form of a
stock dividend and entitled each shareholder of record at the
close of business on June 1, 2007 to receive one additional share
for every outstanding share of Common Stock held. The stock
dividend was distributed on June 26, 2007, with approximately 261
million shares of Common Stock distributed. All per share and
share amounts in the accompanying Consolidated Summary of Results
and Consolidated Balance Sheets have been adjusted to reflect the
stock split.

(d) Other (income) expense primarily includes equity income from our
investments in unconsolidated affiliates in our China and
International Divisions. In the quarter ended December 29, 2007,
other (income) expense also includes recognition of $11 million
of income from a recovery from an insurance carrier related to a
lawsuit against Taco Bell Corp that was settled in 2004 (the
Wrench litigation). In the quarter ended March 24, 2007, other
(income) expense also included recognition of income of $5
million associated with receipt of payment for a note receivable
arising from the 2005 sale of our fifty percent interest in the
entity that operated almost all KFCs and Pizza Huts in Poland and
the Czech Republic to our then partner in the entity. In the
quarter ended March 25, 2006, other (income) expense also
included an $8 million charge associated with the termination of
a beverage agreement in the United States segment.

(e) During the fourth quarter of 2006, we completed the acquisition of
the remaining fifty percent ownership interest of our Pizza Hut
United Kingdom ("PHUK") unconsolidated affiliate. This
unconsolidated affiliate owned over 500 restaurants in the United
Kingdom. Prior to this acquisition, we accounted for our interest
under the equity method. In 2007 and subsequent to the
acquisition in 2006, our financial statements are presented
consolidating the PHUK's results of operations and cash flows. As
a result of this acquisition, company sales increased $61 million
and $576 million, restaurant profit increased $7 million and $59
million, franchise fees decreased $2 million and $19 million and
general and administrative expenses increased $3 million and $33
million compared to the quarter and year ended December 30, 2006,
respectively. The impacts on operating profit and net income were
not significant.

(f) In December 2007, we sold our interest in our unconsolidated
affiliate in Japan for $128 million (includes the impact of
related foreign currency contracts that were settled in December
2007). The international subsidiary that owned this interest
operates on a fiscal calendar with a period end that is
approximately one month earlier than our consolidated period
close. Thus, the pre-tax gain on the sale of this investment of
approximately $87 will be recorded in the first quarter of 2008.
However, the cash proceeds from this transaction were transferred
from our international subsidiary to the U.S. in December 2007
and are thus reported on our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows
for the year ended December 29, 2007. The offset to this cash on
our Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 29, 2007 is in
Accounts payable and other current liabilities.
