Yum! Brands Reports Solid First-Quarter
System Sales Growth of 8%; Same-Store Sales Growth of 4%
GAAP Operating Profit Decline of (22)%; Core Operating Profit Growth of 12%

Louisville, KY (May 1, 2019) - Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM) today reported results for the first-quarter ended March 31, 2019. Worldwide system sales excluding foreign currency translation grew 8%, with 7% net-new units and 4% same-store sales growth. First-quarter GAAP EPS was $0.83, a decrease of (35)%. First-quarter EPS excluding Special Items was $0.82, a decrease of (8)%.

GREG CREED COMMENTS
Greg Creed, CEO, said “The third and final year of our transformation is underway and I’m thrilled with the progress towards our commitment to becoming a more focused, more franchised, and more efficient growth company. First-quarter results were a solid start to the year, reflecting particular strength at the KFC division and Taco Bell U.S. With this quarter, we have a healthy foundation to help us achieve our 2019 guidance. Through the lens of our four growth drivers, we continue to leverage our unprecedented scale and expand our capabilities with the goal of improving franchise economics and accelerating growth. We remain confident in our enviable business model and our commitment to lasting growth that maximizes shareholder value.”
FIRST-QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS
Worldwide system sales excluding foreign currency translation grew 8%, with KFC at 9%, Taco Bell at 7%, and Pizza Hut at 7%. Adjusting the prior year base to include Telepizza, system sales growth excluding foreign currency translation would have been 7% worldwide and 1% for the Pizza Hut Division.
We opened 310 net units in the quarter. On a year-over-year basis, which takes into account the strategic alliance with Telepizza in the fourth-quarter 2018, net new unit growth was 7%.
We repurchased 1.1 million shares totaling $106 million at an average price of $94.
We reflected the change in fair value of our investment in Grubhub by recording $20 million of pre-tax investment expense, resulting in a negative ($0.05) impact in EPS. Our Grubhub investment unfavorably impacted year-over-year EPS growth by ($0.21).
Foreign currency translation unfavorably impacted divisional operating profit by $19 million.

All comparisons are versus the same period a year ago.
System sales growth figures exclude foreign currency translation ("F/X") and core operating profit growth figures exclude F/X and Special Items. Special Items are not allocated to any segment and therefore only impact worldwide GAAP results. See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results within this release for further details.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results
(amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)
 
In addition to the results provided in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company provides the following non-GAAP measurements.

System sales and System sales excluding the impacts of foreign currency translation ("FX"). System sales include the results of all restaurants regardless of ownership, including Company-owned and franchise restaurants. Sales of franchise restaurants typically generate ongoing franchise and license fees for the Company at a rate of 3% to 6% of sales. Franchise restaurant sales are not included in Company sales on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income; however, the franchise and license fees are included in the Company’s revenues. We believe System sales growth is useful to investors as a significant indicator of the overall strength of our business as it incorporates our primary revenue drivers, Company and franchise same-store sales as well as net unit growth.

Diluted Earnings Per Share ("EPS") excluding Special Items (as defined below);

Effective Tax Rate excluding Special Items;

Core Operating Profit. Core Operating Profit excludes Special Items and FX and we use Core Operating Profit for the purposes of evaluating performance internally.

These non-GAAP measurements are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, the Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP measurements provide additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations.

Special Items are not included in any of our Division segment results as the Company does not believe they are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature. Our chief operating decision maker does not consider the impact of Special Items when assessing segment performance. The Special Items are described in (b), (c) and (d) in the accompanying notes.

Certain non-GAAP measurements are presented excluding the impact of FX. These amounts are derived by translating current year results at prior year average exchange rates. We believe the elimination of the FX impact provides better year-to-year comparability without the distortion of foreign currency fluctuations.

2019 EPS GUIDANCE
We have also provided certain forward-looking guidance using non-GAAP measurements. Specifically, in connection with the announcement of our strategic transformation initiatives in 2016, we announced a 2019 Diluted EPS target of at least $3.75 (“2019 Adjusted EPS Target”). This 2019 Adjusted EPS Target was intended to exclude:

Any impact from changes in FX rates (i.e. FX rates were assumed not to change from those in place when we determined the 2019 Adjusted EPS Target in 2016)

Any Special Items; and

The impact of the 53rd week in 2019 for our U.S. businesses and certain international subsidiaries that report on a period calendar;

Additionally, we acquired an interest in Grubhub common stock subsequent to our original determination of the 2019 Adjusted EPS Target and thus are excluding any resulting mark-to-market adjustment for that investment from the 2019 Adjusted EPS target.

At this time, we are unable to forecast any Special Items or Grubhub mark-to-market adjustments for the remainder of 2019 beyond amounts already recognized through March 31, 2019. The full year forecasted impacts of FX and the 53rd week and actual year-to-date impacts of Special Items and Grubhub mark-to-market adjustments on our 2019 Adjusted EPS Target are shown below. This impact of FX has been determined as the difference in translating our current local currency forecasts for 2019 at current FX forward rates and FX rates at the time the 2019 Adjusted EPS target was determined in 2016.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Summary of Results, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets
and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows
(amounts in millions)
(unaudited)

(a)
Amounts presented as of and for the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 are preliminary.

(b)
In connection with our previously announced plans to have at least 98% franchise restaurant ownership by the end of 2018, we recorded net refranchising gains during the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 of $6 million and $156 million, respectively, that have been reflected as Special Items.

The first quarter 2019 refranchising gains related primarily to true-ups of previously recorded amounts. The first quarter 2018 net refranchising gains related primarily to refranchising KFC restaurants in the UK and Taco Bell restaurants in the U.S.

(c)
Tax Expense on Special Items was determined based upon the impact of the nature, as well as the jurisdiction of the respective individual components within Special Items. 

(d)
During the quarter ended March 31, 2018, we recorded a $16 million increase related to our provisional tax expense recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017 associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ("Tax Act") that was reported as a Special Item. We also recorded a Special Items tax benefit of $10 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2018 related to 2018 U.S. foreign tax credits that became realizable directly as a result of the impact of deemed repatriation tax expense associated with the Tax Act.

(e)
Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted the new lease accounting standard. As a result, we are now required to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities upon lease commencement for operating leases based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Under our historical accounting, operating leases were not recognized on the balance sheet. Prior results have not been restated for the impact of this accounting change. Upon adoption we recognized right-of-use assets for leases in place at January 1, 2019 of $690 million, which are presented within Other Assets in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Also upon adoption we recognized lease liabilities of $83 million and $661 million within Accounts payable and other current liabilities and Other liabilities and deferred credits, respectively, in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The impact of the new operating lease accounting on our results of operations and cash flows is not expected to be significant.
