Operating Results Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions, except per share amounts)   Jul 1, 2018   Jul 2, 2017

Operating Income $1,038.2 $1,044.2 (1)%
Operating Margin 16.5% 18.4% (190) bps
EPS   $0.61   $0.47   30%
 

Consolidated net revenues grew 11% over Q3 FY17 to $6.3 billion in Q3 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the impact of our ownership change in East China, incremental revenues from 2,015 net new Starbucks store openings over the past 12 months, favorable foreign currency translation, and 1% growth in global comparable store sales.

Consolidated operating income declined 1% to $1,038.2 million in Q3 FY18, down from $1,044.2 million in Q3 FY17. Consolidated operating margin declined 190 basis points to 16.5%, primarily due to higher investments in our store partners (employees), product mix shift, largely food related, and the impact of our ownership change in East China, partially offset by lower restructuring and impairment costs.

 

Q3 Americas Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Jul 1, 2018   Jul 2, 2017  
Net New Stores 180   244 (64)

Operating Income $908.7 $974.8 (7)%
Operating Margin   21.5%   24.4%   (290) bps
 

Net revenues for the Americas segment grew 6% over Q3 FY17 to $4.2 billion in Q3 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from 902 net new store openings over the past 12 months and 1% growth in comparable store sales, partially offset by the absence of revenue related to the sale of our Brazil retail operations to a licensed partner in Q2 FY18.

Operating income declined 7% to $908.7 million in Q3 FY18, down from $974.8 million in Q3 FY17. Operating margin of 21.5% declined 290 basis points, primarily due to higher investments in our store partners (employees), food-related mix shift, and the impact of the May 29th anti-bias training for U.S. partners.

Q3 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Jul 1, 2018   Jul 2, 2017

Revenues $1,229.0 $840.6 46%
Operating Income $234.1 $223.8 5%
Operating Margin   19.0%   26.6%   (760) bps
 

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 46% over Q3 FY17 to $1,229.0 million in Q3 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the impact of our ownership change in East China, incremental revenues from 746 net new store openings over the past 12 months, and favorable foreign currency translation, partially offset by the absence of revenue related to the sale of our Singapore retail operations to a licensed partner in Q4 FY17 and a 1% decrease in comparable store sales.

Q3 FY18 operating income of $234.1 million grew 5% over Q3 FY17 operating income of $223.8 million. Operating margin declined 760 basis points to 19.0%, primarily due to the impact of our ownership change in East China.

Q3 EMEA Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Jul 1, 2018   Jul 2, 2017  
Net New Stores 76   87 (11)
Revenues $275.4 $249.9 10%
Operating Income $34.9 $9.8 256%
Operating Margin   12.7%   3.9%   880 bps
 

Net revenues for the EMEA segment grew 10% over Q3 FY17 to $275.4 million in Q3 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the opening of 375 net new licensed stores over the past 12 months and favorable foreign currency translation.

Operating income of $34.9 million in Q3 FY18 grew 256% versus operating income of $9.8 million in Q3 FY17. Operating margin expanded 880 basis points to 12.7%, primarily due to lapping the prior year partial impairment of goodwill related to our Switzerland retail business and favorable foreign currency impacts on cost of sales.

Q3 Channel Development Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Jul 1, 2018   Jul 2, 2017  
Revenues $509.0   $478.7 6%
Operating Income $212.8 $210.2 1%
Operating Margin   41.8%   43.9%   (210) bps
 

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $509.0 million in Q3 FY18 increased 6% versus the prior year quarter primarily driven by increased sales in packaged coffee, foodservice and international channels, and higher sales of premium single-serve products, partially offset by the absence of revenue from the sale of our Tazo brand in Q1 FY18.

Operating income of $212.8 million in Q3 FY18 grew 1% compared to Q3 FY17. Operating margin declined 210 basis points to 41.8%, primarily driven by the impact of streamline-driven activities and lower income from our North American Coffee Partnership joint venture.

Q3 All Other Segments Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change

Net New Stores (2)   (6) 4

All Other Segments primarily includes Seattle’s Best Coffee®, Starbucks ReserveTM Coffee and Roastery businesses, and Teavana-branded stores. The lower operating loss in Q3 FY18 as compared to the prior year was primarily due to fewer Teavana restructuring and other impairment costs.

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 and non-GAAP EPS exclude the below listed items, 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 and non-GAAP EPS are operating income, operating margin 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 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, 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.
Sale of Singapore retail operations   Management excludes the net gain related to the sale of our Singapore retail operations as these items do not reflect future gains, losses or tax impacts and for reasons discussed above.
Sale of Germany retail operations   Management excludes the net gain, associated costs and changes in estimated indemnifications related to the sale of our Germany retail operations as these items do not reflect future gains, losses or tax impacts and for reasons discussed above.
The Starbucks Foundation donation   Management excludes the company's largest donation to a non-profit organization for reasons discussed above.
2018 U.S. stock award   Management excludes the announced incremental 2018 stock-based compensation award 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 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 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.
