Starbucks Corporation (Nasdaq: SBUX) today reported financial results for its 13-week fiscal fourth quarter ended October 1, 2023. GAAP results in fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2022 include items that 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.

Q4 Fiscal 2023 Highlights

  • Global comparable store sales increased 8%, driven by a 4% increase in average ticket and 3% increase in comparable transactions
    • North America and U.S. comparable store sales increased 8%, driven by a 6% increase in average ticket and 2% increase in comparable transactions
    • International comparable store sales increased 5%, driven by a 6% increase in comparable transactions and 1% decline in average ticket; China comparable store sales increased 5%, driven by an 8% increase in comparable transactions and a 3% decline in average ticket
  • The company opened 816 net new stores in Q4, ending the period with 38,038 stores: 52% company-operated and 48% licensed
    • At the end of Q4, stores in the U.S. and China comprised 61% of the company’s global portfolio, with 16,352 and 6,806 stores in the U.S. and China, respectively

  • GAAP operating margin of 18.2% increased from 14.2% in the prior year, primarily driven by in-store operational efficiencies, sales leverage and pricing.

“We finished our fourth quarter and full fiscal year strong, delivering on the higher end of our full-year guidance. Our Reinvention is moving ahead of schedule, fueling revenue growth, efficiency and margin expansion,” commented Laxman Narasimhan, chief executive officer. “Notably, we continue to see the positive impact of our Reinvention on our partner and customer experiences, proof points that we can continue to create, grow and strengthen our business while creating value for all. As we enter the current year, in the face of macro uncertainty, we remain confident in the momentum throughout our business and headroom globally. We expect sustained momentum throughout the company for years to come,” Narasimhan added.

“Our strong full fiscal year 2023 performance demonstrated our durable long-term growth and Reinvention plan execution,” commented Rachel Ruggeri, chief financial officer. “We are proud that our full fiscal year 2024 guidance will be grounded on a balance of both revenue growth and margin expansion,” Ruggeri added.

(1) Includes only Starbucks® company-operated stores open 13 months or longer. Comparable store sales exclude the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and Siren Retail stores. Stores that are temporarily closed or operating at reduced hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic remain in comparable store sales while stores identified for permanent closure have been removed.

Net revenues for the North America segment grew 12% over Q4 FY22 to $6.9 billion in Q4 FY23, primarily driven by an 8% increase in comparable store sales, driven by a 6% increase in average ticket and a 2% increase in comparable transactions, net new company-operated store growth of 4% over the past 12 months, as well as strength in our licensed store sales.

Operating income increased to $1.6 billion in Q4 FY23 compared to $1.1 billion in Q4 FY22. Operating margin of 23.2% expanded from 18.6% in the prior year, primarily driven by in-store operational efficiencies, sales leverage and pricing. This expansion was partially offset by previously committed investments in store partner wages and benefits.

(1) Includes only Starbucks® company-operated stores open 13 months or longer. Comparable store sales exclude the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and Siren Retail stores. Stores that are temporarily closed or operating at reduced hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic remain in comparable store sales while stores identified for permanent closure have been removed.

Net revenues for the International segment grew 11% over Q4 FY22 to $2.0 billion in Q4 FY23, primarily driven by net new company-operated store growth of 12% over the past 12 months as well as growth in our licensed store revenue including higher product sales and royalty revenues. Also contributing to the increase was a 5% increase in comparable store sales, driven by a 6% increase in comparable transactions and a 1% decline in average ticket. These increases were partially offset by an approximately 3% unfavorable impact from foreign currency translation.

Operating income increased to $301.3 million in Q4 FY23 compared to $217.6 million in Q4 FY22. Operating margin of 15.2% expanded from 12.2% in the prior year, primarily driven by lapping prior year amortization expenses and sales leverage. This expansion was partially offset by digital investments.

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $486.1 million in Q4 FY23 were relatively flat to Q4 FY22, driven by an increase in revenue in the Global Coffee Alliance partially offset by a decrease in global ready-to-drink revenue.

Operating income increased to $271.2 million in Q4 FY23 compared to $244.6 million in Q4 FY22. Operating margin of 55.8% expanded from 50.6% in the prior year, primarily driven by growth in our North American Coffee Partnership joint venture income.

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 general and administrative expenses (G&A), non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating income growth, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings per share 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 G&A, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating income growth, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings per share are general and administrative expenses, operating income, operating income growth, operating margin, effective tax rate and diluted net earnings per share, respectively.

Non-GAAP Exclusion

Rationale

Restructuring and impairment costs

Management excludes restructuring and impairment costs for reasons discussed above. These expenses are anticipated to be completed within a finite period of time.

Transaction and integration-related costs

Management excludes transaction and integration costs, primarily amortization, of the acquired intangible assets for reasons discussed above. Additionally, we incur certain costs associated with certain divestiture activities. The majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time.

Gain on sale of assets

Management excludes the gain related to the sale of assets to Nestlé, primarily consisting of intellectual properties associated with the Seattle's Best Coffee brand, as these items do not reflect future gains or tax impacts for reasons discussed above.

Sale of certain joint venture operations and retail operations

Management excludes the gain or loss, and subsequent adjustments, if any, related to the sale of certain joint venture and retail operations as these activities were specific to the sale and for reasons discussed above.

Non-GAAP G&A, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating income growth, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings per share 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.
