Yum! Brands Reports First-Quarter EPS Growth of 24%, Excluding Special Items

China Division System Sales Increased 17% with Operating Profit Growth of 80%; Yum! Reaffirms Full-Year Guidance of at least 20% EPS Growth

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - April 22, 2014 - Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM) today reported results for the first quarter ended March 22, 2014, including EPS of $0.87.

Beginning this quarter, our financial reporting will reflect our new structure with comparable prior periods adjusted accordingly. Effective the beginning of 2014, we combined our Yum! Restaurants International and U.S. divisions into three global brand divisions: KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. China and India remain separate divisions given their strategic importance and enormous growth potential. This new structure is designed to drive greater global brand focus, enabling more effective know-how sharing and accelerated growth.

First-Quarter Highlights

  • Worldwide system sales grew 4%. Worldwide restaurant margin increased 3.3 percentage points to 19.2% and worldwide operating profit increased 22%.
  • Total international development was 249 new restaurants; 86% of this development occurred in emerging markets.
  • China Division system sales increased 17%, driven by 7% unit growth and 9% same-store sales growth. Restaurant margin increased 6.8 percentage points to 23.4%. Operating profit increased 80%.
  • KFC Division system sales increased 4%, driven by 2% unit growth and 1% same-store sales growth. Restaurant margin decreased 0.3 percentage points to 12.9%. Operating profit increased 4%.
  • Pizza Hut Division system sales were even, as 2% unit growth was offset by a 2% same-store sales decline. Restaurant margin decreased 4.2 percentage points to 10.8%. Operating profit decreased 14%.
  • Taco Bell Division system sales were even, as 1% unit growth was offset by a 1% same-store sales decline. Restaurant margin decreased 2.6 percentage points to 15.6%. Operating profit decreased 16%.
  • India Division system sales increased 21%, driven by 25% unit growth which was partially offset by a 1% same-store sales decline. Operating profit declined $1 million.
  • Worldwide effective tax rate, prior to Special Items, decreased to 25.8% from 26.0%.
  • Foreign currency translation negatively impacted operating profit by $3 million.

David Novak Comments

David C. Novak, Chairman and CEO said, “Yum! Brands is clearly on its way to a strong bounce-back year delivering first-quarter EPS growth of 24%. Operating profit grew 80% in China, prior to foreign currency translation, driven by strong sales and margin growth. Looking ahead, we have significant building blocks in place in China and each of our divisions to drive sales and profit growth this year and beyond.

China Division system sales increased 17% and restaurant margins were 23.4%. Importantly, KFC results continued to improve with an 11% same-store sales increase in the quarter. We are building off this sales momentum and are encouraged by our recent Menu Revamp, which features the simultaneous launch of 15 exciting products. At Pizza Hut Casual Dining, we had strong performance across every measure. Given the strength at both KFC and Pizza Hut, we expect to open at least 700 new restaurants in China this year as we further capitalize on our leading position in the number-one retail opportunity in the world.

Outside of China, we're on our way to opening a record 1,250 new international units this year. These new units further strengthen our lead in emerging markets where we continue to have positive momentum. We also delivered solid sales and profit performance in Russia and Africa, as well as developed markets like KFC in the U.K. and Australia. However, we experienced disappointing U.S. results, which were impacted by unusually severe weather. We have confidence in our plans to drive balance of year improvement and are particularly pleased with the initial results of our recent Taco Bell breakfast launch.

In summary, Yum! Brands is off to a strong start this year. We expect to achieve EPS growth of at least 20% in 2014 and look forward to re-establishing our track record of consistently delivering double-digit EPS growth in the years ahead.”

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 2014 and 2013 on a basis before Special Items. Included in Special Items is the U.S. refranchising gain (loss). This amount is described in (d) 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 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 ended March 22, 2014 and March 23, 2013 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, except per share amounts)

(unaudited)

 
 
(a)   Amounts presented as of and for the quarter ended March 22, 2014 are preliminary.
 
(b)   Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity income (loss) from investments in unconsolidated affiliates.
 
(c)   Previously, our reporting segments consisted of YUM Restaurants International, the United States, China and India. In the first quarter of 2014, we combined our YUM Restaurants International and United States reporting segments and began reporting this information by three new reporting segments: KFC Division, Pizza Hut Division and Taco Bell Division. China and India remain separate reporting segments. This new structure is designed to drive greater global brand focus, enabling us to more effectively share know-how and accelerate growth. While our consolidated results have not been impacted, we have restated our comparable segment information for consistent presentation.
 
(d)   During the quarters ended March 22, 2014 and March 23, 2013, we recorded gains of $2 million and $17 million, respectively, related to refranchising in the U.S. 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) consistent with our historical presentation.
