"Starbucks third quarter results reflect a continuation of the strong performance and momentum we have been driving across our businesses around the world," said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and ceo. "I'm particularly pleased to report that the significant Q3 increases in store traffic occurred at the same time as we posted the highest levels of customer satisfaction in Starbucks history and despite the challenging global economic environment. Strong performance is enabling us to deliver record results and increase the dividend to shareholders while continuing to innovate and invest in our businesses."

"Supported by the most significant marketing investment in the company's history, in Q3 we successfully launched Starbucks VIA(R) into the grocery channel in the U.S., announced upcoming launches in the grocery channel in Japan and the U.K., brought innovation to the blended beverage category and reenergized our $2 billion Frappuccino(R) beverage platform by creating real consumer and retailer excitement in this important growth category. Our Q3 investments provide us with a very solid foundation for growth in fiscal 2011 and beyond," added Schultz.

13 Weeks Ended
($ in millions) 27-Jun-10 29-Jun-09 Change
Revenues $2,612.0 $2,403.9 9%
GAAP Operating Income $327.7 $204.0 61%

Non-GAAP Operating Income $348.1 $255.6 36%
Non-GAAP Operating Margin 13.3% 10.6% 270 bps
Comparable Store Sales Growth 9% -5%

Consolidated net revenues for Q3 FY10 were $2.6 billion, compared to $2.4 billion in Q3 FY09. The higher revenues were primarily driven by a 9% increase in global comparable stores sales.

Non-GAAP operating income for Q3 FY10 totaled $348.1 million, representing a non-GAAP operating margin expansion of 270 basis points to 13.3%. This improvement was primarily due to increased sales leverage and continued benefits from operational efficiencies. These improvements were partially offset by higher marketing expenses for Starbucks VIA(R) and the new customizable Frappuccino(R) blended beverages.

Restructuring Charges

Restructuring charges of $20.4 million for the quarter were primarily related to continued softness in the commercial real estate market, which impacted the expense recognition for stores that were previously closed in the U.S., but for which the company has remaining lease obligations.

Q3 U.S. Segment Results

13 Weeks Ended
($ in millions) 27-Jun-10 28-Jun-09 Change

Non-GAAP Operating Income $307.8 $226.5 36%

Comparable Store Sales Growth 9% -6%

U.S. net revenues were $1.9 billion in Q3 FY10, an increase of 7% over Q3 FY09. The increase was due to a 9% increase in comparable store sales, comprised of a 6% increase in the number of transactions and a 3% increase in the average value per transaction, partially offset by the net closure of 144 underperforming company-operated stores over the last 12 months.

U.S. non-GAAP operating income for Q3 FY10 was $307.8 million compared to $226.5 million for the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP operating margin expanded to 16.5% in Q3 FY10 compared to 13.0% in the corresponding period of fiscal 2009. The margin expansion was primarily due to comparable store sales growth creating increased sales leverage, combined with ongoing supply chain efficiencies.

Comparable Store Sales Growth 6% -2%

International net revenues were $551.1 million in Q3 FY10 compared to $477.4 million in Q3 FY09, with the increase driven by a 6% increase in comparable store sales, the effect of consolidating the company's previous joint venture operations in France, and the impact of foreign currency translation related to a stronger Canadian dollar. The increase in comparable store sales consisted of a 4% increase in the number of transactions and a 2% increase in the average value per transaction.

International non-GAAP operating income increased to $60.2 million in Q3 FY10, compared to $38.9 million for the same period a year ago, with the related non-GAAP operating margin expanding 280 basis points to 10.9% from 8.1% in Q3 FY09.

Revenues $197.9 $182.8 8%

Fiscal 2010 Targets

Starbucks has updated the following fiscal 2010 targets:

  • Starbucks is now targeting approximately 250 net new stores globally. Both the U.S. and International net new additions are expected to be primarily licensed stores.
  • Due to strong year-to-date performance, the company is now targeting full-year non-GAAP operating margin (excluding restructuring charges) at the high end of the previously-stated ranges of 15% to 17% for the U.S. segment, and 8% to 10% for the International segment. Starbucks continues to expect CPG segment margin of approximately 35% for FY10. Consolidated non-GAAP operating margin is expected to be at the high end of the previously-stated range of 12% to 13%.
  • The company now expects non-GAAP EPS of $1.22 to $1.23, excluding approximately $0.04 of expected restructuring charges and including approximately $0.05 from the extra week in the fiscal fourth quarter, as fiscal 2010 is a 53-week year for Starbucks.
  • Capital expenditures are now expected to be approximately $450 million for the full year.

Fiscal 2011 Targets

Starbucks has announced its fiscal 2011 targets as follows:

  • Starbucks plans to open approximately 500 net new stores globally; approximately 100 in the U.S. and approximately 400 internationally, the majority of which are expected to be licensed stores.
  • The company is targeting mid- to high-single-digit revenue growth, driven by low- to mid-single-digit comparable store sales growth.
  • Starbucks is targeting full-year non-GAAP operating margin improvement (excluding restructuring charges) of 100 to 150 basis points for the U.S. segment, and 100 to 200 basis points for the International segment. The company expects CPG segment margin of approximately 30% to 35%. Consolidated non-GAAP operating margin improvement is expected to be approximately 50 to 100 basis points compared to FY10 non-GAAP operating margin.
  • The company expects EPS of $1.36 to $1.41, reflecting 15% to 20% growth over fiscal 2010 non-GAAP EPS on a 52-week basis. No restructuring charges are anticipated in fiscal 2011.
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $500 million to $550 million for the full year.
  • Commodity costs are expected to have an unfavorable impact on EPS of approximately $0.04, attributable primarily to higher coffee costs.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS), as well as free cash flow. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, and non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS) are operating income, operating margin, net earnings, and diluted net earnings per share, respectively. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to free cash flow is cash flow from operations (or net cash provided by operating activities).

The non-GAAP financial measures provided in this release, other than free cash flow, exclude restructuring charges, primarily related to company-operated store closures and, with respect to non-GAAP financial measures for fiscal 2009, the impacts of workforce reductions. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures (or net additions to property, plant and equipment). The company's management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures better enables investors to understand and evaluate the company's historical and prospective operating performance. More specifically, for historical non-GAAP financial measures other than free cash flow, management excludes each of those items mentioned above because it believes that these costs do not reflect expected future operating expenses and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company's future operating performance or comparisons to the company's past operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and 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.
