David C. Novak, Chairman and CEO said, ″I'm pleased to report EPS growth of 13% in the third quarter, excluding special items. As a result of strong performance in China and other emerging markets, we confidently reaffirm our full-year EPS growth forecast of at least 12%, which will make 2011 the 10th consecutive year we exceed our annual target of at least 10% EPS growth.

In China, operating profit grew 7% for the quarter as system sales jumped 29%, prior to foreign currency translation. Likewise, year-to-date operating profit increased 15% with system sales up 27%. This tremendous sales growth, combined with our expectation to open a record 600 new restaurants this year, gives us even more confidence our China business model is as strong as ever. At Yum! Restaurants International (YRI), operating profit increased 3% in the quarter and 7% year-to-date, prior to foreign currency translation. We are extremely excited about our progress in emerging markets like India, Africa and Russia, as these businesses will contribute meaningful profit growth to Yum! in the coming years. Importantly, we expect to open about 900 new restaurants this year at YRI. The robust new unit growth in China and YRI not only contributes to this year's earnings, but positions Yum! for strong growth in 2012 as well.

Our impressive international growth was offset by a 16% decline in U.S. profits. We're obviously disappointed in our U.S. performance. However, we have aggressively developed a pipeline of category leading innovation and have productivity initiatives planned to dramatically improve sales and profit performance in 2012. Looking ahead, the strength of our international brands and outstanding new unit development, combined with aggressive U.S. initiatives, make us confident we will continue our track record of double-digit earnings growth next year and beyond.″

  • Restaurant margin decreased 3.9 percentage points, driven by commodity and labor inflation. New menu pricing was taken after the quarter ended. We expect full year restaurant margins of 20%.
  • Consistent with our previously communicated full year commodity inflation guidance of 9%, we are expecting peak commodity inflation in the fourth quarter.
  • Operating profit growth of 7%, prior to foreign currency translation, included the impact of a $10 million benefit from our participation in the Shanghai World Expo last year. This reduced operating profit growth by 4 percentage points.
  • Foreign currency translation positively impacted operating profit by $16 million.

OTHER ITEMS UPDATE

 

  • Worldwide effective tax rate, prior to Special Items, declined to 25.1% from 27.4% in the third quarter of last year.
  • Share repurchases totaled $238 million for 4.6 million shares at an average price of $52 per share. Share repurchases totaled $545 million year-to-date.

OWNERSHIP / SPECIAL ITEMS UPDATE

 

  • During the third quarter, we decided to refranchise our entire Pizza Hut UK business. As a result, we recorded a non-cash pre-tax charge in Special Items of $76 million, primarily related to the impairment of long-lived assets.
  • Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, we reached definitive agreements to sell Long John Silver's and A&W All American Restaurants to key franchisee leaders. During the third quarter, we recorded $53 million in tax benefits related to tax losses from the sales.
  • In the U.S., we have essentially completed Pizza Hut refranchising, and KFC is now our main refranchising focus. Year-to-date we have refranchised 128 restaurants, including 104 KFCs. Our target for Pizza Hut and KFC is about 5% company ownership. We expect to refranchise about 400 restaurants in the U.S. for the full year. Since the inception of our refranchising program in late 2007, we have sold over 1,400 units across all brands, excluding Long John Silver's and A&W Restaurants.

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 operating results in 2011 and 2010 on a basis before Special Items. Included in Special Items are the U.S. refranchising gain (loss), the depreciation reduction from the KFC restaurants impaired upon our offer to refranchise in 2010 that remained Company stores for some or all of the quarter or year to date ended September 3, 2011, charges relating to U.S. General and Administrative (″G&A″) productivity initiatives and realignment of resources, the losses associated with refranchising equity markets outside the U.S., and the impairment of intangibles, other costs and anticipated tax benefits relating to the planned sale of our Long John Silver's (″LJS″) and A&W All-American Food Restaurants (″A&W″) brands. These amounts are described in (b), (c), (d) and (e) in the accompanying notes.

The Company uses earnings before Special Items as a key performance measure of results of operations for the purpose of evaluating performance internally. This non-GAAP measurement is 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 provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations, excluding items in 2011 and 2010 that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature.

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

and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows

(amounts in millions, except per share amounts)

(unaudited)

     
(a)   Amounts presented as of and for the quarter and year to date ended September 3, 2011 are preliminary.
     
(b)  

As part of our plan to transform our U.S. business we took several measures (″the U.S. business transformation measures″) in 2011 and 2010 including: continuation of our U.S. refranchising, potentially reducing our Company ownership in the U.S., excluding the LJS and A&W brands, to about 12%; and G&A productivity initiatives and realignment of resources (primarily severance and early retirement costs). We have traditionally not allocated refranchising (gains) losses for segment reporting purposes and will not allocate the costs associated with the productivity initiatives and realignment of resources to the U.S. segment. Additionally, these items have been reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results). U.S. refranchising loss recorded in the year to date ended September 4, 2010 is primarily due to non-cash impairment charges related to our offers to refranchise restaurants in the U.S., principally a substantial portion of our Company operated KFCs. We have recorded the depreciation reduction resulting from the non-cash impairment charges related to these KFCs that remained Company stores for some or all of the periods presented as a Special Item, resulting in depreciation expense in the U.S. segment results continuing to be recorded at the rate at which it was prior to the impairment charge being recorded for these KFCs while we continue to own the restaurants.

     
(c)  

During the quarter ended March 19, 2011 we decided to sell the LJS and A&W brands resulting in a pre-tax non-cash write down of intangible assets totaling $66 million. During the quarter ended September 3, 2011, we recorded an additional $16 million non-cash pre-tax write down of intangible assets based on expected proceeds. Other pre-tax charges relating to the planned sales totaled $1 million and $4 million in the quarter and year to date ended September 3, 2011, respectively. Separate from the aforementioned write downs and other charges related to the planned sales of LJS and A&W, we recorded tax benefits of $53 million during the quarter ended September 3, 2011 related to the planned sales. These items have not been allocated for segment reporting purposes and have been reflected in Special Items for certain reporting measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results). We have classified $144 million of assets and $79 million of liabilities held for sale as Prepaid expenses and other current assets and Accounts payable and other current liabilities, respectively, in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 3, 2011.

     
(d)   During the quarter ended September 3, 2011, we recognized a pre-tax non-cash $76 million refranchising loss ($63 million net of tax) as a result of our decision to offer to refranchise all our remaining company-owned Pizza Hut restaurants in the UK. This loss was not allocated to any segment for performance reporting purposes and has been reflected as a Special Item for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).
     
(e)   During the quarter ended March 20, 2010 we refranchised all of our remaining company restaurants in Taiwan, which consisted of 124 KFCs. We included in our March 20, 2010 financial statements a non-cash write off of $7 million of goodwill in determining the loss on refranchising of Taiwan. This loss did not result in a related income tax benefit, was not allocated to any segment for performance reporting purposes and has been reflected as a Special Item for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).
     
(f)   Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity income from investments in unconsolidated affiliates.
     
(g)   In connection with the potential acquisition of Little Sheep Group Limited (″Little Sheep″), in which we currently own 27% of the outstanding shares, we have placed $300 million in an escrow account to demonstrate availability of funds to acquire additional shares in this business. The funds placed in escrow are restricted to the potential acquisition of Little Sheep and are included in Restricted cash in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 3, 2011.
