“Starbucks record Q4 performance reflected meaningful improvement in virtually every critical operating metric compared to Q3,” said Kevin Johnson, ceo. “As we enter fiscal 2019, we are executing against a clear growth agenda, with a focus on our long-term growth markets of the U.S. and China. We are also excited about the long-term growth potential of our new Global Coffee Alliance with Nestlé. I’m incredibly proud of our 350,000 Starbucks partners around the world and pleased with the continued progress in our growth agenda.”

“In Q4, Starbucks delivered improved sequential results in both our Americas and China/Asia Pacific segments. We also further set the stage for increased benefits from our ongoing efforts to streamline the company,” said Scott Maw, cfo. “Each of these factors contributed to the record Q4 results we reported today and position us well for fiscal 2019 and beyond. As always, credit for Starbucks performance belongs to our store partners all around the world who proudly wear the green apron and deliver an elevated Starbucks Experience to our customers, every day.”

Fiscal 2018 Re-segmentation

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, we realigned our organizational and operating segment structures in support of a newly established Global Coffee Alliance. The scope of the arrangement converts the majority of our previously defined Channel Development segment operations, as well as certain smaller businesses previously reported in the Americas, EMEA and All Other Segments, from company-owned to licensed operations with Nestlé. Our reportable segments have been restated as if those smaller businesses were previously within our Channel Development segment.

In addition, we combined All Other Segments and Unallocated Corporate into one non-reportable segment entitled Corporate and Other.

Further, in an effort to report operating expenses in line with the corresponding revenue-generating activities, we have changed the classification of certain costs, primarily within our CAP segment and mainly from other operating expenses to general and administrative expenses.

Concurrent with the change in reportable segments and realignment of certain operating expenses noted above, we revised our prior period financial information to be consistent with the current period presentation. There was no impact on consolidated net revenues, total operating expenses, operating income, or net earnings as a result of these changes.

We have posted additional details pertaining to these updates, including restated GAAP and non-GAAP P&Ls for FY17 and FY18, on the Supplemental Financial Data page of our Investor Relations website (http://investor.starbucks.com).

Operating Results Quarter Ended     Change
($ in millions, except per share amounts)   Sep 30, 2018     Oct 1, 2017    
Net New Stores 604     603 1

Operating Income $956.6 $1,022.5 (6)%
Operating Margin 15.2% 17.9% (270) bps
EPS   $0.56     $0.54     4%
 

Consolidated net revenues grew 11% over Q4 FY17 to $6.3 billion in Q4 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the impact of our ownership change in East China at the end of Q1 FY18, incremental revenues from 1,997 net new Starbucks store openings over the past 12 months, and 3% growth in global comparable store sales, partially offset by licensing our CPG and foodservice businesses to Nestlé following the close of the deal on August 26, 2018.

Consolidated operating income declined 6% to $956.6 million in Q4 FY18, down from $1,022.5 million in Q4 FY17. Consolidated operating margin declined 270 basis points to 15.2%, primarily driven by streamline-driven activities, including licensing our CPG and foodservice businesses to Nestlé following the close of the deal on August 26, 2018, the impact of our ownership change in East China at the end of Q1 FY18, and the sale of our Tazo brand in Q1 FY18. Additionally, operating margin was adversely impacted by higher investments in our store partners (employees), and food and beverage-related mix shifts, partially offset by sales leverage.

         

Q4 Americas Segment Results

             
Quarter Ended Change
($ in millions)   Sep 30, 2018     Oct 1, 2017    
Net New Stores 250 257 (7)

Operating Income $928.5 $901.5 3%
Operating Margin   21.8%     22.9%     (110) bps
 

Net revenues for the Americas segment grew 8% over Q4 FY17 to $4.3 billion in Q4 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from 895 net new store openings over the past 12 months and 4% 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 grew 3% to $928.5 million in Q4 FY18, up from $901.5 million in Q4 FY17. Operating margin of 21.8% declined 110 basis points, primarily due to higher investments in our store partners (employees) and food and beverage-related mix shifts, partially offset by sales leverage.

         

Q4 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

             
Quarter Ended Change
($ in millions)   Sep 30, 2018     Oct 1, 2017

Operating Income $232.2 $201.7 15%
Operating Margin   19.1%     23.5%     (440) bps
 

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 41% over Q4 FY17 to $1,214.6 million in Q4 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the impact of our ownership change in East China at the end of Q1 FY18, incremental revenues from 756 net new store openings over the past 12 months, and a 1% increase in comparable store sales, partially offset by the absence of revenue related to the sale of our Singapore retail operations to a licensed partner in Q4 FY17.

Q4 FY18 operating income of $232.2 million grew 15% over Q4 FY17 operating income of $201.7 million. Operating margin declined 440 basis points to 19.1%, primarily due to the impact of our ownership change in East China at the end of Q1 FY18.

         

Q4 EMEA Segment Results

             
Quarter Ended Change
($ in millions)   Sep 30, 2018     Oct 1, 2017    
Net New Stores 83 104 (21)
Revenues $267.3 $255.1 5%
Operating Income $10.8 $29.0 (63)%
Operating Margin   4.0%     11.4%     (740) bps
 

Net revenues for the EMEA segment grew 5% over Q4 FY17 to $267.3 million in Q4 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the opening of 356 net new licensed stores over the past 12 months and 2% growth in comparable store sales, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation.

Operating income of $10.8 million in Q4 FY18 declined 63% versus operating income of $29.0 million in Q4 FY17. Operating margin declined 740 basis points to 4.0%, primarily due to higher business restructuring costs and impairment of the remaining goodwill related to our Switzerland retail business, partially offset by lapping a tax settlement expense in the prior year.

         

Q4 Channel Development Segment Results

             
Quarter Ended Change
($ in millions)   Sep 30, 2018     Oct 1, 2017

Operating Income $190.8 $265.4 (28)%
Operating Margin   35.4%     46.0%     (1,060) bps
 

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $539.3 million in Q4 FY18 decreased 6% 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 the net impact from the sale of our Tazo brand in Q1 FY18, partially offset by an increase in sales of our packaged coffee and premium single-serve products.

Operating income of $190.8 million in Q4 FY18 declined 28% compared to Q4 FY17. Operating margin declined 1,060 basis points to 35.4%, primarily driven by streamline-driven activities, including licensing our CPG and foodservice businesses to Nestlé following the close of the deal on August 26, 2018 and the sale of our Tazo brand in Q1 FY18. Additionally, operating margin was adversely impacted by higher marketing expenses.

Company Updates

  • In August, Starbucks began licensing its consumer packaged goods and foodservice businesses to Nestlé. The two companies will work closely together on the existing Starbucks range of roast and ground coffee, whole beans, single-serve, and instant coffee offerings. The Alliance will also capitalize on the experience and capabilities of both companies to bring new product offerings for coffee lovers globally.
  • In August, the company announced a strategic partnership with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. that will enable a seamless Starbucks Experience and transform the coffee industry in China. Collaborating across key businesses within the Alibaba ecosystem, including Ele.me, Hema, Tmall, Taobao and Alipay, Starbucks announced plans to pilot delivery services beginning September 2018, establish “Starbucks Delivery Kitchens” for delivery order fulfillment and integrate multiple platforms to co-create an unprecedented virtual Starbucks store – an unparalleled and even more personalized online Starbucks Experience for Chinese customers.
  • In October, Starbucks announced Patrick Grismer has been appointed executive vice president and chief financial officer (cfo) effective November 30. Reporting to Kevin Johnson, Starbucks president and chief executive officer, Grismer succeeds Scott Maw, who will retire on November 30. Grismer joins Starbucks from his current position as cfo of Hyatt Hotels Corporation, which he has held since joining the company in March 2016. In this role, he was responsible for all facets of the global finance function, as well as corporate strategy, asset management, construction, procurement, and shared services.
  • In October, the company announced its intention to fully license Starbucks operations in France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg to its longstanding strategic partner Alsea, S.A.B. de C.V., the largest independent chain restaurant operator in Latin America. Under the proposal, which is subject to relevant local laws, Alsea will have the rights to operate and develop Starbucks stores in these markets, building on Starbucks regional growth agenda that drives value through strategic licensed relationships. Starbucks also announced plans to introduce a new support structure in its head office in London to better serve an increasingly licensed strategy.
  • In response to critically low coffee prices in Central America, Starbucks announced a commitment of up to $20 million to temporarily relieve impacted smallholder farmers with whom Starbucks does business, until the coffee market self-corrects and rises above the cost of production. These funds will go directly to smallholder farmers in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico and El Salvador to subsidize farmer income during the upcoming harvest season in Central America.
  • In September, Starbucks celebrated its expansion into Italy - the company’s 78th market - by opening the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Milan. Milan marks the first time Starbucks has established its retail presence in a new market with the Roastery format, of which only two others exist in the world: the Seattle Roastery, which opened in 2014, and the Roastery in Shanghai, which debuted in 2017. Following the opening of the Roastery, Starbucks will bring additional cafés to Milan with licensed partner Percassi beginning in late 2018.
  • The company’s Board of Directors authorized an additional 120 million shares for repurchase under its ongoing share repurchase program.
  • As part of the company’s previously announced plan to return $25 billion to shareholders in the form of share buybacks and dividends through fiscal 2020, Starbucks announced that it is currently executing a $5 billion accelerated share repurchase program (ASR) of the Company’s common stock with the assistance of two financial institutions. The Company used proceeds from the recently completed transaction with Nestlé S.A. to execute the ASR, effective October 1, 2018.
  • The company repurchased 58.5 million shares of common stock in Q4 FY18.
  • The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.36 per share, payable on November 30, 2018, to shareholders of record as of November 15, 2018.

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.

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.

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.
