Starbucks Reports Record Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results16:03 EDT Thursday, April 26, 2012 SEATTLE (Business Wire) -- Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) today reported financial results for its 13-week fiscal second quarter ended April 1, 2012. Fiscal Second Quarter 2012 Highlights: Total net revenues increased 15% to $3.2 billion Global comparable store sales increased 7%, driven by a 6% increase in traffic and a 1% increase in average ticket EPS increased 18% to $0.40 per share, compared to $0.34 per share in Q2 FY11 Channel Development revenues increased 57%, driven by sales of Starbucks- and Tazo-branded K-Cup® packs and the benefit of recognizing the full revenue from packaged coffee sales under the direct distribution model Starbucks opened 176 net new stores globally, including its 3,000th store in the China/Asia Pacific segment, its first store in Norway and the first Evolution Fresh™ store in Bellevue, Wash. "Starbucks record Q2 performance demonstrates the strength of our business, the increasing power and global relevance of our brand and the success of our unique Blueprint for Profitable Growth business strategy," said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and ceo. "In Q2 we expanded our retail presence, recorded our seventh consecutive quarter of over 20% sales growth in China, introduced new products into multiple channels and more than offset high legacy commodity costs through increased efficiencies. I could not be more excited or more optimistic about the future of our company as we pursue disciplined, profitable growth all around the world," Schultz added. “Starbucks delivered strong growth in the fiscal second quarter, again demonstrating the value of our evolving diversified business model. Revenue growth was driven by continued strong global same store sales and an increasing contribution from our Channel Development segment,” commented Troy Alstead, cfo. “On the strength of our business and recent trends, we are accelerating new store growth in fiscal 2012 to approximately 1,000 net new stores globally, and raising our earnings targets for the year. With coffee cost pressures easing in the second half of the year and momentum building from investments in our growth initiatives, we are well positioned to deliver on our aggressive targets.” Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Summary   Quarter Ended Apr 1, 2012Comparable Store Sales(1)   Sales Growth   Change in Transactions   Change in Ticket Consolidated 7%   6%   1% Americas 8% 7% 1% EMEA (1%) 0% 0% CAP   18%   14%   4% (1) Includes only Starbucks company-operated stores open 13 months or longer. Operating Results   Quarter Ended($ in millions, except per share amounts)   Apr 1, 2012   Apr 3, 2011   Change Net New Stores 176   (146)   322 Revenues $3,195.9 $2,785.7 15% Operating Income $430.4 $376.1 14% Operating Margin 13.5% 13.5% 0 bps EPS   $0.40   $0.34   18% Consolidated net revenues reached a second-quarter record $3.2 billion in Q2 FY12, an increase of 15% over Q2 FY11. The increase was primarily due to a 7% increase in global comparable stores sales and 57% revenue growth in Channel Development. The 7% increase in comparable store sales was comprised of a 6% increase in the number of transactions and a 1% increase in average ticket. Consolidated operating income increased 14% to $430.4 million in Q2 FY12, compared to $376.1 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 13.5% in Q2 FY12, which was equal to the same period last year. Sales leverage offset the increase in commodity costs, primarily coffee, which negatively impacted Q2 FY12 operating income and operating margin by approximately $63.5 million and 200 basis points, respectively, compared to the same period in the prior year. A recent court ruling relating to state unclaimed property laws resulted in higher unredeemed gift card income in the interest and other income line in the quarter, compared to the same period a year ago. Q2 Americas Segment Results   Quarter Ended($ in millions)   Apr 1, 2012   Apr 3, 2011   Change Net New Stores 76   (211)   287 Revenues $2,374.7 $2,164.8 10% Operating Income $463.0 $419.9 10% Operating Margin   19.5%   19.4%   10 bps Net revenues for the Americas segment were $2.4 billion in Q2 FY12, an increase of 10% over Q2 FY11. The increase was primarily due to an 8% increase in comparable store sales, including a 7% increase in the number of transactions and a 1% increase in average ticket. Additionally, licensed store revenue growth of approximately 27% contributed to the Americas segment results. Operating income increased to $463.0 million in Q2 FY12, compared to $419.9 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin increased 10 basis points to 19.5% in Q2 FY12. The margin expansion was due to increased sales leverage offset by the increase in commodity costs, primarily coffee.

The increase was primarily due to incremental revenues from the consolidation of the Switzerland and Austria markets. Comparable store sales declined by 1% with slight decreases in both transactions and average ticket. EMEA reported an operating loss of $5.5 million in Q2 FY12, compared to operating income of $7.7 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin decreased 520 basis points to (2.0%) compared to 3.2% in the prior-year period.

The increase was due to incremental revenues from 98 net new company-operated store openings over the last 12 months, and an 18% increase in comparable store sales. The 18% increase in comparable store sales was the result of a 14% increase in the number of transactions and a 4% increase in average ticket. Operating income increased to $69.5 million in Q2 FY12, compared to $43.7 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 39.8% in Q2 FY12 compared to 33.2% in the prior-year period. The margin expansion was primarily driven by increased sales leverage and increased income from our joint venture operations, partially offset by higher commodity costs. Q2 Channel Development Segment Results   Quarter Ended($ in millions)   Apr 1, 2012   Apr 3, 2011   Change Revenues $321.5   $204.7   57% Operating Income $81.7 $67.2 22% Operating Margin   25.4%   32.8%   (740) bps Channel Development net revenues were $321.5 million in Q2 FY12, an increase of 57% over Q2 FY11.

Channel Development operating income was $81.7 million in Q2 FY12 compared to $67.2 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 25.4% in Q2 FY12 compared to 32.8% in the prior-year period.

Fiscal 2012 Targets Starbucks has updated the following Fiscal 2012 targets: The company is further accelerating its growth through the opening of approximately 1,000 net new stores globally: Accelerating growth to approximately 500 net new stores in the Americas, with licensed stores comprising approximately one-half of the new additions. Also accelerating growth in China/Asia Pacific to approximately 400 net new stores, with licensed stores comprising approximately two-thirds of the new additions. One-half of the China/Asia Pacific new stores are planned for China. Maintaining previous growth target of approximately 100 net new stores in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Russia and Africa), with licensed stores comprising approximately two-thirds of the new stores. The company is now targeting revenue growth in the low teens, driven by mid-single-digit comparable store sales growth, 1,000 net new store openings, and continued strong growth in the Channel Development business. Starbucks is maintaining its full-year operating margin improvement target of 50 to 100 basis points over FY11 non-GAAP results on a consolidated basis. Operating margin for the Americas business is still expected to improve slightly over FY11. EMEA margin is expected to be positive, but now expected to decline from its FY11 margin due to the region's severe macro-economic challenges and the company's investments in the region. China/Asia Pacific margin is now expected to be approximately 30% to 35%, and Channel Development margin is expected to be approximately 25%; lower than FY11 largely due to the full year impact of higher coffee costs. The company continues to expect commodity costs will add approximately $230 million of cost pressure to FY12, with the majority already reflected in results from the first half of the year. Given the strong Q2 YTD FY12 results, the company has raised its expectation for earnings per share to a range of $1.81 to $1.84, representing 19% to 21% growth over the $1.52 EPS in FY11, excluding the FY11 non-routine gains. EPS growth is expected to be approximately 25% to 29% in the second half of FY12, or $0.45 to $0.46 earnings per share in Q3 and $0.46 to $0.48 earnings per share in Q4, reflecting the easing of commodity costs in the second half of the year. Capital expenditures are now expected to be approximately $900 million. Company Updates On February 24, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit rating on Starbucks to ‘A-' from ‘BBB+' reflecting the company's strong performance and S&P's expectation for solid growth over the intermediate term. On March 8, Starbucks announced the first at-home premium single cup espresso and brewed coffee machine that meets its commitment to taste and quality, the Verismo™ system by Starbucks. The Verismo™ system by Starbucks crafts both Starbucks-quality espresso beverages, from lattes to americanos, and brewed coffee consistently and conveniently one cup at a time. On March 19, Starbucks opened its first Evolution Fresh™ store in Bellevue, Wash. to position Evolution Fresh as a leader in the $3.4 billion and growing cold-crafted juice category. On March 21, Starbucks and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters announced the expansion of their strategic relationship for the manufacturing, marketing, distribution and sale of Starbucks-branded Vue™ packs for use in the Keurig® Vue™ Brewer. On March 21, Starbucks announced plans for a global entry into the energy category with Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages – making Starbucks the first to bring green coffee extract innovation to customers on a global scale. As part of Starbucks efforts to address the U.S. jobs crisis through the “Create Jobs for USA” program, by the end of Q2 more than $7.5 million has been contributed to the fund. This translates into $53 million in financing for community businesses and supported the creation or sustainment of more than 2,500 jobs. The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.17 per share, payable on May 25, 2012, to shareholders of record as of May 9, 2012.

Non-GAAP Disclosure In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS) for fiscal 2011. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS) are operating margin and diluted net earnings per share, respectively. The fiscal 2011 non-GAAP financial measures provided in this release exclude non-routine gains from the sale of properties and the acquisition of the company's joint venture operations in Switzerland and Austria in fiscal 2011. The company's management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures better enables investors to understand and evaluate the company's historical and prospective operating performance. More specifically, for historical non-GAAP financial measures, management excludes the non-routine gains in fiscal 2011, because it believes that the impact of non-routine gains do not reflect expected future expenses and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company's future operating performance or comparisons to the company's past operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP. Other companies may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently than the company does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.
