Yum! Brands Reports Third-Quarter 2013 EPS Declined 15%, Excluding Special Items

Soft KFC China Sales and Higher Tax Rate Reduce Full-Year EPS Expectations

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Oct. 8, 2013 - Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 7, 2013, including EPS of $0.85, excluding Special Items. Reported EPS was $0.33 for the quarter, which included a $0.55 non-cash charge related to the write-down of Little Sheep intangible assets.

Third-Quarter Highlights

  • Worldwide system sales grew 1%, prior to foreign currency translation, including 5% growth at Yum! Restaurants International (YRI). System sales declined 2% in China and were flat in the U.S.
  • Same-store sales declined 11% in China. Same-store sales grew 1% at YRI and were flat in the U.S.
  • Total international development was 364 new restaurants; 79% of this development occurred in emerging markets.
  • Worldwide restaurant margin declined 1.3 percentage points to 17.6%, including declines of 1.9 percentage points in China, 0.6 percentage points at YRI and 0.7 percentage points in the U.S.
  • Worldwide operating profit declined 9%, prior to foreign currency translation, including declines of 14% in China and 2% at YRI. Operating profit grew 1% in the U.S.
  • Worldwide effective tax rate, prior to Special Items, increased to 33.1% from 25.1% driven primarily by a tax reserve adjustment. The tax rate increase negatively impacted EPS results by 10 percentage points.
  • A non-cash, Special Item net charge of $258 million related to the write-down of Little Sheep intangible assets was recorded in the quarter. This charge impacted reported EPS by 55 percentage points.
  • On September 19, 2013, the Company announced a 10% increase in its quarterly dividend, marking the ninth consecutive year the dividend increased at a double-digit percentage rate.

China Sales Update

  • September same-store sales, which will be included in China Division’s fourth-quarter results, declined an estimated 11% for the China Division. This included estimated growth of 6% at Pizza Hut Casual Dining and an estimated decline of 13% at KFC, where sales have not yet fully recovered from the adverse publicity surrounding the December poultry supply incident.

Revised Full-Year Outlook

Based on KFC China sales for September, it is now unlikely China Division same-store sales will be positive for the fourth quarter. Given lower-than-expected China sales and a higher-than-expected full-year tax rate, the Company now estimates a high-single to low-double-digit full-year EPS decline versus prior year, excluding Special Items. This compares to our previous guidance of a mid-single-digit decline in EPS.

David C. Novak Comments

David C. Novak, Chairman and CEO, said, "Despite the disappointing third-quarter performance, I remain as confident as ever in our ability to deliver strong, sustainable growth in the years to come. Given a slower-than-expected sales recovery at KFC China and a higher-than-expected tax rate, we are now estimating a high-single to low-double-digit percentage decline in full-year EPS versus prior year, excluding Special Items. Our revised full-year EPS outlook is obviously well below our 11-year track record of double-digit growth through 2012. We also recorded a significant non-cash Special Item charge for the write-down of Little Sheep intangible assets. Little Sheep remains the number-one brand in China’s largest casual dining category, and we remain committed to this concept as an engine of future growth.

Even with our recent challenges, KFC is unquestionably the category leader in China and we remain confident sales will fully recover from the adverse publicity surrounding the December poultry supply incident. Our Pizza Hut business in China continues to deliver strong results, and the rest of Yum! is performing generally as expected for the full year. I’m pleased with the strong margin performance in China in the face of significant sales deleverage, along with the fact that Taco Bell has produced seven consecutive quarters of positive same-store sales growth. We remain on the ground floor of global growth and continue to have unparalleled development opportunities. As evidence of this, we expect to open at least 700 new units in China this year, as we capitalize on the world’s fastest growing consuming class. Outside of China, we expect record new-unit openings for Yum! Restaurants International and in India this year. When you add it all up for Yum!, we will open at least 1,850 new restaurants outside the U.S., further strengthening our leadership position in emerging markets. In addition, we will have net new-unit growth in the U.S. for the second consecutive year.

We expect to deliver at least 20% EPS growth in 2014 and restore our track record of double-digit EPS growth in the years ahead. Our business model remains compelling and we will continue to invest behind the enormous growth opportunities we see around the world."

Ownership / Special Items / Tax Update

  • Our Little Sheep business has performed below expectations since we acquired a controlling interest in February 2012. While we continue to have confidence in the long-term potential of Little Sheep, the sales and unit growth we forecasted at acquisition have not materialized. Initially, sales growth was negatively impacted by a longer-than-expected purchase approval and ownership transition. In May 2013, negative publicity from quality issues with other unrelated hot pot concepts in China further significantly impacted sales at Little Sheep, even though there was never an issue with the quality of Little Sheep products. This negative sales impact continued in the third quarter. A net impairment charge for certain Little Sheep assets totaling $258 millionwas recorded as a Special Item, consistent with the classification of the $74 million gain that was recorded in 2012 upon our consolidation of Little Sheep.
  • In the U.S., we refranchised 54 units and received proceeds of $58 million. We recorded pre-tax U.S. refranchising gains of $37 million in Special Items.
  • Our worldwide effective tax rate for the quarter, prior to Special Items, increased from 25.1% to 33.1%. This increase is primarily related to the continuing dispute with the IRS regarding a valuation of intangibles, which has been disclosed in our prior SECfilings, and is not expected to meaningfully impact our effective tax rate in future years. Our full-year 2013 global effective tax rate is now expected to be approximately 28%.

Share Repurchase Update

  • Year-to-date through October 7, 2013, we repurchased 7.1 million shares totaling $490 million at an average price of $69.

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 2013 and 2012 on a basis before Special Items. Included in Special Items are charges associated with the impairment of certain Little Sheep assets in 2013, the gain upon acquisition of Little Sheep in 2012, U.S. refranchising gain (loss), losses associated with the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in business and charges relating to U.S. General and Administrative ("G&A") productivity initiatives and realignment of resources. These amounts are described in (c), (d), (e) and (f) in the accompanying notes. Other Special Items Income (Expense) in 2013 includes a YUM retirement plan pension settlement charge related to the continuation of a program that began in the fourth quarter of 2012 to payout deferred vested balances. Other Special Items Income (Expense) in 2012 includes the depreciation reductions from Pizza Hut UK and KFC U.S. restaurants impaired upon our decision or offer to refranchise that remained Company stores for some or all of the periods presented and gains from real estate sales related to our previously refranchised Mexico business.

 

The Company uses earnings before Special Items as a key performance measure of results of operations for the purpose of evaluating performance internally and Special Items are not included in any of our segment results. 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 the quarters and years to date ended September 7, 2013 and September 8, 2012 that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature.

The above tables reconcile segment information, which is based on management responsibility, with our Condensed Consolidated Summary of Results.  Corporate and unallocated expenses comprise items that are not allocated to segments for performance reporting purposes.

                                                 

The Corporate and Unallocated column in the above tables includes, among other amounts, all amounts that we have deemed Special Items.  See Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results.

 
     

Notes to the Condensed 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 7, 2013 are preliminary.

     

(b)

 

Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity income (loss) from investments in unconsolidated affiliates. The year to date ended September 8, 2012 also includes costs related to the acquisition of Little Sheep Group Limited ("Little Sheep").

     

(c)

 

During the quarter and year to date ended September 7, 2013, we recorded gains of $37 million and $82 million, respectively, related to refranchising in the U.S., primarily at Taco Bell. During the year to date ended September 8, 2012, we recorded gains of $53 million related to refranchising in the U.S., primarily at Taco Bell. We have traditionally not allocated refranchising (gains) losses for segment reporting purposes. Additionally, U.S. refranchising (gains) losses have been reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).

     

(d)

 

On February 1, 2012 we acquired an additional 66% interest in Little Sheep for $540 million, net of cash acquired of $44 million, increasing our ownership to 93%. The acquisition was driven by our strategy to build leading brands across China in every significant category. Prior to our acquisition of this additional interest, our 27% interest in Little Sheep was accounted for under the equity method of accounting. As a result of the acquisition we obtained voting control of Little Sheep, and thus we began consolidating Little Sheep upon acquisition. As required by GAAP, we remeasured our previously held 27% ownership in Little Sheep, which had a recorded value of $107 million at the date of acquisition, at fair value and recognized a non-cash gain of $74 million. This gain, which resulted in no related income tax expense, was recorded in Other (income) expense on our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income during the quarter ended March 24, 2012. During the quarter ended September 7, 2013, we recorded an impairment charge totaling $258 million (net of income tax benefit of $18 million and amounts allocated to noncontrolling interests of $19 million).  This charge was driven by a write down in goodwill from $384 million to $162 million and a write down in trademark from $415 million to $345 million.  The gain upon acquisition and the impairment charge were not allocated for segment reporting purposes and were reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).

     

(e)

 

During the quarter ended December 29, 2012, we refranchised our remaining 331 Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants. During the year to date ended September 8, 2012, we recorded pre-tax losses of $24 million to Refranchising (gain) loss primarily to adjust the carrying amount of the asset group to its then estimated fair value. These losses were not allocated for segment reporting purposes and were reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).

     
   

For the quarter ended September 7, 2013, the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants decreased Company sales by 18% and increased Franchise and license fees and income and Operating Profit by 2% and less than 1%, respectively, for the YRI Division. For the year to date ended September 7, 2013, the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants decreased Company sales by 19% and increased both Franchise and license fees and income and Operating Profit by 2% for the YRI Division.

     

(f)

 

During the quarter ended September 7, 2013, as part of our U.S. G&A productivity initiatives and realignment of resources, we recorded a one-time charge of $5 million related to the outsourcing of certain information technology, accounting and payroll services.

     

(g)

 

At the beginning of fiscal 2013 we eliminated the period lag that we previously used to facilitate the reporting of our India Division's results.  Accordingly, the India Division's 2013 third quarter results include the months of June through August 2013, and the 2013 year to date results include the months of January through August 2013.  Due to the immateriality of the India Division's results we did not restate the prior year operating results for the elimination of this period lag and therefore the 2012 third quarter results continue to include the months of May through July 2012 and the 2012 year to date results include the months of December 2011 through July 2012.  However, we have presented India Division system sales growth, same-store sales growth and restaurant unit growth within this release by comparing June through August 2013 to June through August 2012 for the third quarter and January through August 2013 to January through August 2012 for the year to date to enhance comparability.
