Q4 Fiscal 2012 Targets:

The company has updated its Q4 FY12 revenue and EPS targets as follows:

  • Revenue growth of 10% - 12%
  • Earnings per share of $0.44 to $0.45, representing growth of 19% - 22% compared to Q4 FY11 non-GAAP EPS

Fiscal 2013 Targets:

The company has introduced its initial FY13 revenue and EPS targets as follows:

  • Revenue growth of 10% - 13%
  • 1,200 net new stores, driven by acceleration in the U.S. and China
  • Earnings per share of $2.04 to $2.14, representing growth of 15% - 20%

“Starbucks record Q3 results demonstrate the continued strength of our global business and brand, the success of multiple, highly innovative consumer packaged goods initiatives and continued acceleration of our China and Asia-Pacific operations,” said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and ceo. “Despite coming in short of our expectations I am pleased with the increasing operating leverage we are seeing, the fact that this was our 11th consecutive quarter of record results and the fact that we achieved the results in the face of high legacy commodity costs and challenging economic and consumer headwinds in key markets. I am confident that we are operating with the discipline, flexibility and customer centricity necessary to enable us to continue driving EPS growth in excess of revenue growth over the long run,” Schultz added.

“While still representing earnings growth of approximately 20% over last year’s fourth quarter, we have lowered our expectations for Q4 FY12 earnings per share to $0.44 to $0.45 to reflect the difficult economic environment all global retailers are confronting today,” commented Troy Alstead, cfo. “Nonetheless, we remain confident in the underlying strength of our business, in the strategies we have in place for driving sustained, profitable growth, and in our ability to again drive earnings growth in the range of 15% - 20% in fiscal 2013.”

Operating Results       Quarter Ended    
($ in millions, except per share amounts)       Jul 1, 2012     Jul 3, 2011     Change
Net New Stores 231     155 76
Revenues $3,303.6 $2,932.2 13%
Operating Income $491.6 $402.2 22%
Operating Margin 14.9% 13.7% 120 bps
EPS       $0.43     $0.36     19%
 

Consolidated net revenues reached a third-quarter record $3.3 billion in Q3 FY12, an increase of 13% over Q3 FY11. The increase was primarily due to a 6% increase in global comparable stores sales and 45% revenue growth in Channel Development. The 6% increase in comparable store sales was comprised of a 5% increase in the number of transactions and a 2% increase in average ticket.

Consolidated operating income increased 22% to $491.6 million in Q3 FY12, compared to $402.2 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 14.9% in Q3 FY12, compared to 13.7% in the same period last year. Sales leverage more than offset the increase in commodity costs, primarily coffee, which negatively impacted Q3 FY12 operating income and operating margin by approximately $38 million and 110 basis points, respectively, compared to the same period in the prior year.

Q3 Americas Segment Results

      Quarter Ended    
($ in millions)       Jul 1, 2012     Jul 3, 2011     Change
Net New Stores 83     52 31
Revenues $2,471.2 $2,275.9 9%
Operating Income $512.1 $450.9 14%
Operating Margin       20.7%     19.8%     90 bps
 

Net revenues for the Americas segment were $2.5 billion in Q3 FY12, an increase of 9% over Q3 FY11. The increase was primarily due to a 7% increase in comparable store sales, including a 5% increase in the number of transactions and a 2% increase in average ticket. Additionally, licensed store revenue growth of approximately 24% contributed to the Americas segment results.

Operating income increased to $512.1 million in Q3 FY12, compared to $450.9 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin increased 90 basis points to 20.7% in Q3 FY12. The margin expansion was due to increased sales leverage, partially offset by the increase in commodity costs, primarily coffee.

Q3 EMEA Segment Results

      Quarter Ended    
($ in millions)       Jul 1, 2012     Jul 3, 2011     Change
Net New Stores 36     36 0
Revenues $282.0 $257.9 9%

Operating Income

$2.6 $4.9 (47%)
Operating Margin       0.9%     1.9%     (100) bps
 

Net revenues for the EMEA segment were $282.0 million in Q3 FY12, an increase of 9% over Q3 FY11. The increase was primarily due to incremental revenues from the consolidation of the Switzerland and Austria markets, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency exchange.

EMEA operating income was $2.6 million in Q3 FY12, compared to operating income of $4.9 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin decreased 100 basis points to 0.9% compared to 1.9% in the prior-year period. The margin contraction was primarily driven by higher costs related to the transition to a consolidated food and dairy distribution model in the UK.

Q3 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

      Quarter Ended    
($ in millions)       Jul 1, 2012     Jul 3, 2011     Change
Net New Stores 112     67 45
Revenues $181.8 $138.6 31%
Operating Income $61.4 $44.9 37%
Operating Margin       33.8%     32.4%     140 bps
 

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment were $181.8 million in Q3 FY12, an increase of 31% over Q3 FY11. The increase was due to incremental revenues from 116 net new company-operated store openings over the last 12 months, higher licensed stores revenue and a 12% increase in comparable store sales. The 12% increase in comparable store sales was the result of an 8% increase in the number of transactions and a 4% increase in average ticket.

Operating income increased 37% to $61.4 million in Q3 FY12, compared to $44.9 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin increased 140 basis points to 33.8% in Q3 FY12 compared to 32.4% in the prior-year period. The margin expansion was primarily driven by increased sales leverage, partially offset by investment spending to support continued growth in China.

Q3 Channel Development Segment Results

      Quarter Ended    
($ in millions)       Jul 1, 2012     Jul 3, 2011     Change
Revenues $316.4     $218.4 45%
Operating Income $86.5 $69.3 25%
Operating Margin       27.3%     31.7%     (440) bps
 

Channel Development net revenues were $316.4 million in Q3 FY12, an increase of 45% over Q3 FY11. The increase was primarily due to sales of Starbucks®- and Tazo®-branded K-Cup® portion packs and growth in packaged coffee sales. The fiscal third quarter marks the first full year-over-year comparison period under the direct distribution model.

Channel Development operating income was $86.5 million in Q3 FY12 compared to $69.3 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 27.3% in Q3 FY12 compared to 31.7% in the prior-year period. The margin contraction was mainly due to higher commodity costs, primarily coffee, which negatively impacted Q3 FY12 operating income and operating margin by approximately $16 million and 500 basis points, respectively, compared to the same period in the prior year.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS) for fiscal 2011. 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 margin and non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS) are operating margin and diluted net earnings per share, respectively.

The fiscal 2011 non-GAAP financial measures provided in this release exclude non-routine gains from the sale of properties and the acquisition of the company’s joint venture operations in Switzerland and Austria in fiscal 2011. 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, management excludes the non-routine gains in fiscal 2011, because it believes that the impact of non-routine gains do not reflect expected future 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.
