Starbucks

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) yesterday reported financial results for its 13-week fiscal first quarter ended December 30, 2018. GAAP results in fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018 include items which are excluded from non-GAAP results. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures at the end of this release for more information.

“Starbucks delivered solid operating results in the first quarter, demonstrating continued momentum in our business, as we drive our growth-at-scale agenda with focus and discipline,” said Kevin Johnson, president and ceo. “We are particularly pleased with the sequential improvement in quarterly comparable store transactions in the U.S., underpinned by our digital initiatives and improved execution of our in-store experience. With this solid start to the fiscal year, we are on track to deliver on our full-year commitments.”

“Comprehensive efforts to streamline our business have allowed us to focus on three key strategic initiatives that position Starbucks for long-term success: accelerating growth in our targeted markets of the U.S. and China, expanding the global reach of the Starbucks brand through our Global Coffee Alliance with Nestlé, and increasing shareholder returns. Combined with our efforts to build and amplify the Starbucks brand, we expect these initiatives will position the company to drive predictable, sustainable growth and shareholder returns for years to come,” concluded Johnson.

Q1 Fiscal 2019 Highlights

  • Global comparable store sales increased 4%, driven by a 3% increase in average ticket
    • Americas and U.S. comparable store sales increased 4%, with transactions flat
    • CAP comparable store sales increased 3%, including 1% transaction growth; China comparable store sales increased 1%, with transactions down 2%

  • Consolidated net revenues of $6.6 billion grew 9% over the prior year including a net benefit of approximately 1% from Streamline-driven activities and unfavorable foreign currency translation of nearly 1%
    • Streamline-driven activities include the consolidation of the acquired East China business, partially offset by licensing our CPG and foodservice businesses to Nestlé following the close of the deal on August 26, 2018 and the sale of the Tazo brand
  • GAAP operating margin, inclusive of restructuring and impairment charges, declined 310 basis points year-over-year to 15.3% primarily due to Streamline-driven activities and partner (employee) investments
    • Non-GAAP operating margin of 17.4% declined 180 basis points compared to the prior year
  • GAAP Earnings Per Share of $0.61, down 61% over the prior year

Operating income grew 3% to $1.0 billion in Q1 FY19, up from $977.7 million in Q1 FY18. Operating margin of 22.0% declined 100 basis points, primarily due to higher wage and benefit-related investments in our store partners (employees), product-related mix shifts, and higher restructuring costs and asset impairments, partially offset by sales leverage.

Q1 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 45% over Q1 FY18 to $1.2 billion in Q1 FY19, primarily driven by the ownership change in East China at the end of Q1 FY18, 1,010 net new store openings, or 13% store growth, over the past 12 months, and a 3% increase in comparable store sales.

Q1 FY19 operating income of $221.5 million grew 13% over Q1 FY18 operating income of $196.8 million. Operating margin declined 530 basis points to 18.0%, primarily due to the impact of our ownership change in East China at the end of Q1 FY18.

Net revenues for the EMEA segment declined 1% from Q1 FY18 to $266.3 million in Q1 FY19 due to unfavorable foreign currency translation, partially offset by the opening of 324 net new store openings, or 10% store growth, over the past 12 months.

Operating income of $27.0 million in Q1 FY19 declined 17% versus operating income of $32.4 million in Q1 FY18. Operating margin declined 200 basis points to 10.1%, primarily due to restructuring costs and asset impairments.

Q1 Channel Development Segment Results

($ in millions)   Dec 30, 2018   Dec 31, 2017  
Revenues   $504.6   $628.0   (20)%

Operating Margin   34.8%   42.9%   (810) bps

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $504.6 million in Q1 FY19 decreased 20% versus the prior year quarter primarily due to licensing our CPG and foodservice businesses to Nestlé following the close of the deal on August 26, 2018 and sale of the Tazo brand.

Operating income of $175.7 million in Q1 FY19 declined 35% compared to Q1 FY18. Operating margin declined 810 basis points to 34.8%, primarily due to licensing our CPG and foodservice businesses to Nestlé, sale of the Tazo brand and support costs related to the Global Coffee Alliance.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, or alternatives for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Our non-GAAP financial measures of non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP EPS exclude the below listed items and their related tax impacts, as they do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company's future operating performance or comparisons to the company's past operating performance. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP EPS are operating income, operating margin, effective tax rate and diluted net earnings per share, respectively.

     

Non-GAAP Exclusion

 

Rationale

East China acquisition-related gain   Management excludes the gain on the purchase of our East China joint venture as this incremental gain is specific to the purchase activity and for reasons discussed above.
Sale of Taiwan joint venture operations   Management excludes the gain related to the sale of our Taiwan joint venture operations as this incremental gain is specific to the sale activity and for reasons discussed above.
Sale of Tazo brand   Management excludes the net gain on the sale of our assets associated with our Tazo brand and associated transaction costs as these items do not reflect future gains, losses, costs or tax benefits and for reasons discussed above.
Sale of Brazil retail operations   Management excludes the net loss related to the sale of our Brazil retail operations and associated transaction costs as these items do not reflect future losses, expenses or tax impacts and for reasons discussed above.
Restructuring, impairment and optimization costs   Management excludes restructuring charges and business process optimization costs related to strategic shifts in its Teavana, EMEA, U.S., e-commerce and other business units. Additionally, management excludes expenses related to divesting certain lower margin businesses and assets, such as closure of certain company-operated stores and Switzerland goodwill impairment. Management excludes these items for reasons discussed above. These expenses are anticipated to be completed within a finite period of time.
CAP transaction and integration-related costs   Management excludes transaction and integration costs and amortization of the acquired intangible assets for reasons discussed above. Additionally, the majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time.
2018 U.S. stock award   Management excludes the incremental stock-based compensation award granted in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 for reasons discussed above.
Nestlé transaction related costs   Management excludes the transaction related costs associated with Nestlé for reasons discussed above.
Other tax matters  

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into U.S. law. Management excludes the estimated transition tax on undistributed foreign earnings, the impacts of estimated incremental foreign withholding taxes on expected repatriated earnings and the re-measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities due to the reduction of the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate for reasons discussed above.

     

Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP EPS may have limitations as analytical tools. 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.
