      • U.S. comp store sales increased 3% comprised of a 4% increase in average ticket and a 2% decrease in transactions. Adjusting for the estimated impact of order consolidation related to the new Starbucks RewardsTM loyalty program, average ticket grew 3% with transactions flat to prior year.

  • Consolidated net revenues grew 6% to a Q2 record $5.3 billion

“With our U.S. business accelerating throughout the quarter and strong performance in China, we are poised to deliver strong revenue growth in the second half and into the future,” said Kevin Johnson, Starbucks president and ceo. “Our success in opening over 2,000 stores around the world annually, delivering record AUV and profit, despite a very difficult period for many brick-and-mortar retailers is a testament to the 330,000 partners who proudly wear the green apron.”

“Starbucks U.S. comp sales accelerated sequentially through the quarter - culminating with a 4% U.S. comp in March - and we’re seeing further acceleration into April," said Scott Maw, Starbucks cfo. “Investments we are making to increase throughput and further premiumize the Starbucks brand are paying off. And increased capacity combined with accelerating momentum and the beverage, food and technology innovation we will be introducing in the months ahead gives us great confidence in our ability to deliver strong comp sales and revenue growth in the back half of fiscal 2017.”

“Starbucks Roasteries under design or construction in the iconic, global cities of Shanghai, New York, Tokyo, Milan and Chicago will join our Seattle Roastery in delivering an immersive, ultra-premium, coffee-forward experience like none other anywhere in the world - further elevating the Starbucks brand, enhancing our customer experience and extending our global leadership around all-things-coffee,” said Howard Schultz, Starbucks executive chairman. “Together our Roasteries, Reserve stores and Reserve bars will broaden - and deepen - the enduring emotional connection that exists between our customers and the Starbucks brand everywhere.”

Operating Results Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions, except per share amounts)   Apr 2, 2017   Mar 27, 2016  
Net New Stores 427   350 77
Revenues $5,294.0 $4,993.2 6%
Operating Income $935.4 $864.2 8%
Operating Margin 17.7% 17.3% 40 bps
EPS   $0.45   $0.39   15%

Consolidated net revenues were $5.3 billion in Q2 FY17, an increase of 6% over Q2 FY16. The increase was primarily driven by incremental revenues from the opening of 2,240 net new stores over the past 12 months and 3% growth in global comparable store sales.

Consolidated operating income grew 8% to $935.4 million in Q2 FY17, up from $864.2 million in Q2 FY16. Consolidated operating margin expanded 40 basis points to 17.7% primarily due to sales leverage and was partially offset by higher investments in our store partners (employees), primarily in the Americas segment.

Q2 Americas Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 2, 2017   Mar 27, 2016  
Net New Stores 200   132 68
Revenues $3,720.4 $3,455.6 8%
Operating Income $826.1 $812.0 2%
Operating Margin   22.2%   23.5%   (130) bps

Net revenues for the Americas segment were $3.7 billion in Q2 FY17, an increase of 8% over Q2 FY16. The increase was driven by incremental revenues from 952 net new store openings over the past 12 months and 3% growth in comparable store sales.

Operating income of $826.1 million in Q2 FY17 grew 2% versus $812.0 million in Q2 FY16. Operating margin of 22.2% declined 130 basis points primarily due to higher investments in our store partners (employees) and the impact of product sales mix. These decreases were partially offset by sales leverage.

Q2 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 2, 2017   Mar 27, 2016  
Net New Stores 187   175 12
Revenues $768.9 $677.9 13%
Operating Income $175.9 $129.3 36%
Operating Margin   22.9%   19.1%   380 bps

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 13% over Q2 FY16 to $768.9 million in Q2 FY17. The increase was primarily driven by incremental revenues from 1,015 net new store openings over the past 12 months and 3% growth in comparable store sales.

Q2 FY17 operating income of $175.9 million grew 36% over Q2 FY16 operating income of $129.3 million. Operating margin expanded 380 basis points to 22.9% primarily driven by the transition to China's value added tax structure in Q3 FY16 and sales leverage.

Q2 EMEA Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 2, 2017   Mar 27, 2016  
Net New Stores 46   47 (1)
Revenues $231.7 $268.3 (14)%
Operating Income $27.7 $27.6 0%
Operating Margin   12.0%   10.3%   170 bps

Net revenues for the EMEA segment were $231.7 million in Q2 FY17, a 14% decrease versus Q2 FY16. The decrease was primarily driven by the absence of revenue related to the sale of our Germany retail operations in Q3 FY16 as part of the ongoing shift to more licensed stores in the region as well as unfavorable foreign currency translation. Partially offsetting these decreases were incremental revenues from the opening of 304 net new licensed stores over the past 12 months.

Operating income of $27.7 million in Q2 FY17 was nearly flat to operating income of $27.6 million in Q2 FY16. Operating margin expanded 170 basis points to 12.0% primarily due to sales leverage driven by the shift in the portfolio towards more licensed stores, primarily related to the sale of our Germany retail operations in Q3 FY16. Partially offsetting the margin expansion was unfavorable foreign currency exchange and sales deleverage in certain company-operated stores.

Q2 Channel Development Segment Results

           
Quarter Ended   Change
($ in millions)   Apr 2, 2017   Mar 27, 2016  
Revenues $461.3   $461.2 0%
Operating Income $193.6 $182.0 6%
Operating Margin   42.0%   39.5%   250 bps

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $461.3 million in Q2 FY17 were flat to Q2 FY16. Increased sales of packaged coffee as well as higher international and foodservice sales were offset by an unfavorable revenue deduction adjustment pertaining to prior periods of $20.6 million, an immaterial amount of which pertained to Q2 FY16. When excluding this adjustment, revenue growth was approximately 5%.

Operating income of $193.6 million in Q2 FY17 increased 6% compared to Q2 FY16. Operating margin expanded 250 basis points to 42.0% primarily driven by lower coffee costs and leverage on cost of sales as well as higher income from the North American Coffee Partnership. The margin expansion was partially offset by the unfavorable revenue deduction adjustment noted above.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures 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. 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
Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items   Management excludes Starbucks Japan acquisition-related transaction costs as these items 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. In addition, management excludes Starbucks Japan integration costs and amortization of the acquired intangible assets when evaluating performance because these expenses are not representative of our core business operations. Although these items will affect earnings per share beyond the current fiscal year, the majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time. More specifically, integration costs are expected to be concentrated in the first several years post-acquisition. Additionally, the amounts of the acquired intangible assets are specific to the transaction, and the related future amortization was fixed at the time of acquisition and generally cannot subsequently be changed or influenced by management.
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 do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company's past or future operating performance.
Other tax matters   Management excludes incremental tax benefits in the U.S. as these tax benefits do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company's past or future operating performance.

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.
