          Jun 28, 2015           Jun 29, 2014           Change
Net New Stores 431           344 87
Revenues $4,881.2 $4,153.7 18%
Operating Income $938.6 $768.5 22%
Operating Margin 19.2% 18.5% 70 bps
EPS           $0.41           $0.34           21%
 

Consolidated net revenues were $4.9 billion in Q3 FY15, an increase of 18% over Q3 FY14. The increase was primarily driven by incremental revenues from the acquisition of Starbucks Japan, a 7% increase in global comparable store sales and the opening of 1,592 net new stores over the past 12 months.

Consolidated operating income grew 22% to $938.6 million in Q3 FY15, up from $768.5 million in Q3 FY14. Consolidated operating margin expanded 70 basis points to 19.2% primarily driven by sales leverage. This was partially offset by the impact of our ownership change in Starbucks Japan, which drove 90 basis points of margin decline, and by investments in our store partners (employees) in the Americas segment.

Net revenues for the Americas segment were $3.4 billion in Q3 FY15, an increase of 12% over Q3 FY14. The increase was driven by 8% growth in comparable store sales and incremental revenues from 658 net new store openings over the past 12 months.

Operating income of $855.3 million in Q3 FY15 increased 17% from $728.5 million in Q3 FY14. Operating margin expanded 120 basis points to 25.0% primarily due to sales leverage and lower commodity costs, primarily dairy, and was partially offset by investments in our store partners (employees).

Operating Income $36.0 $29.2 23%
Operating Margin           12.2%           9.0%           320 bps
 

Net revenues for the EMEA segment were $294.7 million in Q3 FY15, a 9% decrease versus Q3 FY14. The decrease was primarily driven by unfavorable foreign currency translation and the shift in the portfolio towards more licensed stores. Partially offsetting the decrease was a 3% increase in comparable store sales.

Operating income increased 23% to $36.0 million in Q3 FY15, up from $29.2 million in Q3 FY14. Operating margin expanded 320 basis points to 12.2%, primarily due to sales leverage driven by the ongoing shift in the portfolio towards more licensed stores.

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 127% to $652.7 million in Q3 FY15. The increase was primarily driven by incremental revenues from the acquisition of Starbucks Japan. Also contributing were incremental revenues from 750 net new store openings over the past 12 months and an 11% increase in comparable store sales.

Operating income grew 49% to $150.0 million in Q3 FY15. Operating margin declined 1,200 basis points to 23.0% due to the impact of our ownership change in Starbucks Japan, which drove a 1,570 basis point decline. The remaining 370 basis point expansion was primarily driven by sales leverage as well as improved profitability in our company-operated stores in the region.

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment grew 8% to $403.6 million in Q3 FY15, primarily driven by increased sales of premium single-serve products and higher foodservice sales.

Operating income of $143.4 million in Q3 FY15 grew 3% compared to Q3 FY14. Operating margin decreased 160 basis points to 35.5%, primarily driven by increased marketing spend and increased coffee costs. The decrease was partially offset by leverage on cost of sales and increased income from our North American Coffee Partnership.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides consolidated non-GAAP earnings per share ("non-GAAP EPS") for Q4 and full year fiscal 2014, consolidated non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP EPS for Q3 fiscal 2015, China/Asia Pacific (“CAP”) segment non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin for Q3 fiscal 2015, and projected consolidated non-GAAP EPS for Q4 and full year fiscal 2015. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or alternatives for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. 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. 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.

The consolidated Q4 and full year fiscal 2014 non-GAAP EPS excludes the net benefit from transactions in Q4 fiscal 2014. The consolidated full year fiscal 2014 non-GAAP EPS also excludes the benefit recognized from a Kraft related litigation credit in Q1 fiscal 2014. The net benefit from transactions in Q4 fiscal 2014 includes a gain on the sale of our Malaysia equity method investment, partially offset by a loss on the sale of our Australia retail operations and transaction costs incurred related to the acquisition of Starbucks Japan. Management excludes these items because they believe the impacts do not reflect expected future gains or 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.

The consolidated Q3 fiscal 2015 non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items, specifically amortization expense from acquired intangible assets and transaction and integration costs. The Q3 fiscal 2015 CAP segment non-GAAP financial measures exclude the amortization expense from acquired intangible assets related to the acquisition of Starbucks Japan. Management excludes the acquisition-related transaction costs described above because they believe 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 believes it is useful to exclude the integration costs and the amortization of the acquired intangible assets when evaluating performance because they are not representative of our core business operations. Although these items will affect earnings per share beyond fiscal 2015, the majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time. More specifically, the amounts of the acquired intangible assets are specific to the transaction and the related amortization was fixed at the time of acquisition and generally cannot subsequently be changed or influenced by management in a future period. Therefore, these items do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company’s fiscal 2015 operating performance or comparisons of the company’s fiscal 2015 operating performance to the company’s past operating performance or, with respect to the CAP segment, to a meaningful evaluation of the CAP segment’s operating performance or comparisons to the CAP segment’s past operating performance.

The projected consolidated non-GAAP EPS for Q4 and full year fiscal 2015 exclude certain Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items comprised of projected amortization expense from acquired intangible assets and transaction and integration costs, as well as certain losses and costs related to the redemption of the company's $550 million of 6.250% 2017 Senior Notes in Q4 fiscal 2015. Losses and costs related to the redemption are included as debt extinguishment-related items. The projected consolidated non-GAAP EPS for full year fiscal 2015 also excludes the gain in Q1 related to the fair value adjustment of Starbucks 39.5% ownership in Starbucks Japan prior to the acquisition. Management is excluding the Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items from our projected non-GAAP measures for the same reasons described above. Additionally, management is excluding the fair value gain and debt extinguishment-related items because they believe these items do not reflect future gains, losses or 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.
