“Starbucks Q2 of fiscal 2018 represented another quarter of record financial results, highlighted by accelerating momentum across our Americas business - particularly in the U.S., continued strong performance in China and our strongest comp growth in Japan in five quarters,” said Kevin Johnson, president and ceo. “At the same time we made measurable progress against each of the strategic initiatives that position Starbucks to continue delivering best-in-class operating and financial results long into the future.”

“We have a clear set of actions underway to improve profitability through a combination of comp and beverage growth and savings across COGS, waste and labor as we move through the back half of the year,” said Scott Maw, cfo. “We are continuing to invest in our business - strategically and with a ‘long game’ mentality - while at the same time taking decisive near-term action to maximize our brand portfolio and ensure that we continue to deliver outsized returns to our shareholders in the quarters and years ahead.”

Revenues $6,031.8 $5,294.0 14%
Operating Income $772.5 $935.4 (17)%
Operating Margin 12.8% 17.7% (490) bps
EPS   $0.47   $0.45   4%

(1) Q2 2018 net new stores include the closure of 298 Teavana-branded stores.

 

Consolidated net revenues grew 14% over Q2 FY17 to $6.0 billion in Q2 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the impact of our ownership change in East China, incremental revenues from 2,103 net new Starbucks store openings over the past 12 months, and 2% growth in global comparable store sales.

Consolidated operating income declined 17% to $772.5 million in Q2 FY18, down from $935.4 million in Q2 FY17. Consolidated operating margin declined 490 basis points to 12.8%, primarily due to restructuring and impairments, food-related mix shift primarily in the Americas segment, higher investments in our store partners (employees), and the impact of our ownership change in East China.

Q2 Americas Segment Results

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

Operating Income $801.3 $826.1 (3)%
Operating Margin   20.0%   22.2%   (220) bps
 

Net revenues for the Americas segment grew 8% over Q2 FY17 to $4.0 billion in Q2 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from 966 net new store openings over the past 12 months and a 2% growth in comparable store sales.

Operating income declined 3% to $801.3 million in Q2 FY18, down from $826.1 million in Q2 FY17. Operating margin of 20.0% declined 220 basis points, primarily due to higher investments in our store partners (employees) and food-related mix shift.

Q2 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 1, 2018   Apr 2, 2017  
Net New Stores 216   187 29
Revenues $1,186.4 $768.9 54%
Operating Income $204.6 $175.9 16%
Operating Margin   17.2%   22.9%   (570) bps

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 54% over Q2 FY17 to $1,186.4 million in Q2 FY18, primarily driven by incremental revenues from the impact of our ownership change in East China, incremental revenues from 759 net new store openings over the past 12 months, favorable foreign currency translation, and a 3% increase in comparable store sales. The increase was partially offset by the absence of company-operated store revenue related to the sale of our Singapore retail operations to a licensed partner in Q4 FY17.

Q2 FY18 operating income of $204.6 million grew 16% over Q2 FY17 operating income of $175.9 million. Operating margin declined 570 basis points to 17.2%, primarily due to the impact of our ownership change in East China.

Q2 EMEA Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 1, 2018   Apr 2, 2017  
Net New Stores 64   46 18
Revenues $266.1 $231.7 15%
Operating Income/(Loss) ($4.3) $27.7 (116)%
Operating Margin   (1.6)%   12.0%   (1,360) bps

Net revenues for the EMEA segment grew 15% over Q2 FY17 to $266.1 million in Q2 FY18, primarily driven by favorable foreign currency translation and incremental revenues from the opening of 385 net new licensed stores over the past 12 months. Partially offsetting the increase was a decrease in comparable store sales.

Operating loss of $4.3 million in Q2 FY18 declined 116% versus operating income of $27.7 million in Q2 FY17. Operating margin declined 1,360 basis points to (1.6)%, primarily driven by a partial impairment of goodwill related to our Switzerland retail business and sales deleverage on company-operated stores.

Q2 Channel Development Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 1, 2018   Apr 2, 2017  
Revenues $500.2   $461.3 8%
Operating Income $215.3 $193.6 11%
Operating Margin   43.0%   42.0%   100 bps

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $500.2 million in Q2 FY18 increased 8% versus the prior year quarter primarily driven by higher sales of premium single-serve products and lapping a prior year revenue deduction adjustment, partially offset by the absence of revenue from the sale of our Tazo brand in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

Operating income of $215.3 million in Q2 FY18 grew 11% compared to Q2 FY17. Operating margin expanded 100 basis points to 43.0%, primarily driven by lapping a revenue deduction adjustment, partially offset by lower income from our North American Coffee Partnership joint venture.

Q2 All Other Segments Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 1, 2018   Apr 2, 2017  
Net New Stores (297)   (6) (291)

Operating Loss   $(114.8)   $(25.5)   350%

All Other Segments primarily includes Seattle’s Best Coffee®, Starbucks ReserveTM Coffee and Roastery businesses, and Teavana-branded stores.

Fiscal 2018 Targets

  • Continue to expect approximately 2,300 net new Starbucks stores globally
  • Continue to expect 3-5% comparable store sales growth globally, expect to be near the low end of the range for the year
  • Continue to expect consolidated revenue growth in the high single digits when excluding approximately 2 points of net favorability from the East China acquisition and other streamline-driven activities
  • Continue to expect GAAP EPS in the range of $3.32 to $3.36 and non-GAAP EPS in the range of $2.48 to $2.53

Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures at the end of this release.

  • Starbucks announced it will close more than 8,000 company-owned stores and its corporate offices in the U.S. on May 29 to conduct racial-bias training for all partners (employees) in the U.S. The training will be provided to nearly 175,000 partners (employees) across the country and will become part of the onboarding process for new partners. Once complete, the company will make the education materials available to other companies, including its licensees.

  • The company announced that it had entered into an agreement with SouthRock Capital Ltda – a leading multi-brand restaurant operator in Brazil – to fully license Starbucks retail operations in Brazil.

  • The company closed an underwritten public offering of $1 billion of 3.100% senior notes due 2023 and $600 million of 3.500% senior notes due 2028.

  • The company repurchased 27.4 million shares of common stock in Q2 FY18; the company's Board of Directors has authorized an additional 100 million shares for repurchase under its ongoing share repurchase program. With the additional 100 million shares, the company now has approximately 124 million shares available for purchase under current authorizations.

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.
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.
