  • Same-store sales declined 20% in China. Same-store sales grew 1% at YRI and 2% in the U.S.
  • Total international development was 380 new restaurants; 88% of this development occurred in emerging markets.

DAVID NOVAK COMMENTS

David C. Novak, Chairman and CEO, said, “While better than expected, the first quarter was extremely difficult for Yum! Brands. As anticipated, intense media attention surrounding poultry supply in China significantly impacted KFC sales and profit. Earnings per share declined 8% versus prior year, as our China Division operating profit fell 41%. Operating profit increased 19% at Yum! Restaurants International and 5% in our U.S. business.

The negative media surrounding poultry supply in China has subsided. We have taken steps to enhance our industry-leading supply chain practices, and we're now in the midst of an aggressive quality assurance marketing campaign. However, our sales recovery has been adversely affected by the recent news of Avian flu. This news surfaced during the first week of April and continues to negatively impact same-store sales. We continue to remind consumers that properly cooked chicken is perfectly safe to eat. Historically, the sales impact of Avian flu publicity has initially been dramatic at KFC but relatively short-lived. We will stay the course with our plans to develop at least 700 new units in China this year to lay the foundation for future growth. We have complete confidence in a full sales recovery.

Outside of China, we expect solid, on-target performance for Yum! Brands. Taco Bell continues to deliver strong results with its combination of great value, innovation and world-class operations. Additionally, our emerging market new-unit pipeline is stronger than ever at Yum! Restaurants International and in India.

There is no doubt 2013 will be a challenging year for our company. With news of Avian flu, there will obviously be more volatility with our China sales recovery. However, given better-than-expected first-quarter performance, our estimated mid-single-digit full-year EPS decline versus prior year remains unchanged. I'm confident we will end the year with momentum and restore our track record of consistently delivering double-digit EPS growth in 2014 and beyond.”

  • System sales decreased 9%, prior to foreign currency translation.
    • Same-store sales declined 20%, including a 24% decline at KFC and 2% decline at Pizza Hut Casual Dining.

  • Restaurant margin decreased 7.0 percentage points to 16.6%, primarily due to sales deleverage.
  • For the quarter, the Little Sheep acquisition had a positive impact of 4 percentage points on system sales growth, a negligible impact on restaurant margin and a positive impact of 4 percentage points on operating profit growth.
  • Foreign currency translation positively impacted operating profit by $2 million.

CURRENT CHINA SALES UPDATE

  • Beginning the first week of April, publicity surrounding Avian flu in China has had a significant, negative impact on KFC sales. Historically, the impact of Avian flu publicity has initially been dramatic at KFC but relatively short-lived. In the past, we reminded consumers that properly cooked chicken is perfectly safe to eat, and we continue to do so.
  • Based on our results through the first three weeks of April, we expect China Division same-store sales to decline about 30% for the month.
  • We are temporarily providing monthly same-store sales releases until sales have recovered. We will release April same-store sales for our China Division on May 10, 2013, after market hours.

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 the U.S. refranchising gain (loss), the gain on the acquisition of Little Sheep and losses associated with the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in business. These amounts are described in (c), (d) and (e) in the accompanying notes. Other Special Items Income (Expense) includes the depreciation reductions in 2012 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 charges relating to U.S. General and Administrative ("G&A") productivity initiatives and realignment of resources.

 

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 23, 2013 and March 24, 2012 that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature.

(a) Amounts presented as of and for the quarter ended March 23, 2013 are preliminary.
 
(b) Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity income from investments in unconsolidated affiliates. The quarter ended March 24, 2012 also includes costs related to the acquisition of Little Sheep Group Limited ("Little Sheep").
 
(c) During the quarters ended March 23, 2013 and March 24, 2012, we recorded gains of $17 million and $45 million, respectively, 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, was not allocated for segment reporting purposes and is reflected as a Special Item 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 quarter ended March 24, 2012, we recorded pre-tax losses of $21 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 March 23, 2013, the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants decreased Company sales by 21% and increased Franchise and license fees and income and Operating Profit by 2% and 3%, respectively, for the YRI Division.
 
(f)

During the quarter ended March 23, 2013 we eliminated the period lag that we previously used to facilitate the reporting of our India Division's results. Accordingly, the India Division results for the first quarter of 2013 include the months of January and February 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 results for the first quarter of 2012 continue to include the months of December 2011 and January 2012. However, we have presented India Division system sales growth, same-store sales growth and restaurant unit growth within this release by comparing January and February 2013 to January and February 2012 to enhance comparability.
