Yum! Brands Reports Solid Fourth-Quarter Results and Completion of Strategic Transformation
System Sales Growth of 10%; Same-Store Sales Growth of 2%
GAAP Operating Profit Decline of (26)%; Core Operating Profit Growth of 14%

Louisville, KY (February 6, 2020) - Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM) today reported results for the fourth-quarter and year ended December 31, 2019. Fourth-quarter GAAP EPS was $1.58, an increase of 51%. Full-year GAAP EPS was $4.14, a decrease of (12)%. Fourth-quarter EPS excluding Special Items was $1.00, an increase of 148%. Full-year EPS excluding Special Items was $3.55, an increase of 12%.

DAVID GIBBS & CHRIS TURNER COMMENTS
David Gibbs, CEO, said “I am proud to announce that we completed our three-year transformation of Yum!, having achieved all of our transformation goals and evolved into a more focused, more franchised and more efficient business. 2019 was a truly historic year for our company. For the full-year, we generated over $50 billion in system sales and ended the year with over 50,000 restaurants thanks to our world-class franchisees. We delivered results consistent with our long-term growth algorithm with same-store sales growth of 3% and net-new unit growth of 4%. We began 2020 by announcing an agreement to add the Habit Burger Grill to the Yum! family. When complete, this deal should enable us to offer an exciting new investment opportunity to our existing franchisees and expand an award-winning, trend-forward brand through the power of Yum!’s unmatched scale. As we move into the next phase of growth for Yum!, we will continue to focus on our four key growth drivers with a collaborative mindset to fuel strong results for years to come.”
Chris Turner, CFO, continued “Fourth-quarter results were a solid end to the year where we met or exceeded each component of our guidance, including full-year 2019 core operating profit growth, which was an increase of 12%, or 11% excluding the 53rd week. I'm especially pleased that we opened over 1,000 net new units in the fourth-quarter alone. We’ve emerged from our transformation a stronger company, and I look forward to accelerating the growth of our iconic brands, championing the customer experience and unlocking further value for our stakeholders.”

We intend all forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and by the use of forward-looking words such as “expect,” “expectation,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “may,” “could,” “intend,” “belief,” “plan,” “estimate,” “target,” “predict,” “likely,” “seek,” “project,” “model,” “ongoing,” “will,” “should,” “forecast,” “outlook” or similar terminology. These statements are based on and reflect our current expectations, estimates, assumptions and/or projections, our perception of historical trends and current conditions, as well as other factors that we believe are appropriate and reasonable under the circumstances. Forward-looking statements are neither predictions nor guarantees of future events, circumstances or performance and are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated by those statements. There can be no assurance that our expectations, estimates, assumptions and/or projections, including with respect to the future earnings and performance or capital structure of Yum! Brands, will prove to be correct or that any of our expectations, estimates or projections will be achieved.
Numerous factors could cause our actual results and events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: food safety and food borne-illness issues; health concerns arising from outbreaks of viruses or other diseases; the success of our franchisees and licensees; the success of our transformation initiatives, including our refranchising strategy; our significant exposure to the Chinese market; changes in economic and political conditions in countries and territories outside of the U.S. where we operate; our ability to protect the integrity and security of individually identifiable data of our customers and employees; our ability to successfully implement technology initiatives; our increasing dependence on digital commerce platforms and information technology systems; the impact of social media; our ability to secure and maintain distribution and adequate supply to our restaurants; the success of our development strategy in emerging markets; changes in commodity, labor and other operating costs; pending or future litigation and legal claims or proceedings; changes in or noncompliance with government regulations, including labor standards and anti-bribery or anti-corruption laws; tax matters, including changes in tax laws or disagreements with taxing authorities; consumer preferences and perceptions of our brands; changes in consumer discretionary spending and general economic conditions; competition within the retail food industry; and risks relating to our significant amount of indebtedness. In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently believe to be immaterial could affect the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements should be evaluated with the understanding of their inherent uncertainty.
The forward-looking statements included in this announcement are only made as of the date of this announcement and we disclaim any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement to reflect subsequent events or circumstances.

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, System sales excluding the impacts of foreign currency translation ("FX") and, in 2019, System sales excluding FX and the impact of 53rd week for our U.S. subsidiaries and certain international subsidiaries that operate on a weekly periodic calendar. System sales include the results of all restaurants regardless of ownership, including Company-owned and franchise restaurants. Sales at 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 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 all of our significant 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 and, in 2019, Core Operating Profit excluding the impact of the 53rd week. 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), (d), (e), (f) and (g) 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.

For 2019 we provided Core Operating Profit excluding the impact of the 53rd week and System sales excluding the impact of the 53rd week to further enhance the comparability given the 53rd week that was part of our fiscal calendar in 2019.

Reconciliation of GAAP Diluted EPS to 2019 Adjusted EPS

In connection with the announcement of our strategic transformation initiatives in 2016, we announced a non-GAAP 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 in 2019; 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 have excluded the resulting 2019 mark-to-market adjustment for that investment when determining actual results versus the 2019 Adjusted EPS Target. Provided below is a reconciliation of our GAAP Diluted EPS to 2019 Adjusted EPS adjusting for the factors as discussed above.
