CEO Comments

"This was a momentous year for Yum China. We successfully became an independent, publicly traded company while simultaneously improving our business performance and investing for future growth. At year end 2016 with over 7,500 restaurants nationwide, we extended our market-leading position in China," said Micky Pant, CEO.

"For our shareholders, we exceeded our 2016 financial targets* in operating profit, restaurant margin and adjusted EBITDA. We continue to focus on our long-term growth formula: new unit development, same-store sales growth, and continued restaurant margin improvement. Right now, our top priority is consistently delivering positive same-store sales growth. During 2016, we continued to build a foundation for long-term growth with emphasis on product innovation, investments in refurbishing our restaurants, and focus on digital engagement with our customers.

2016 was a ground breaking year for Yum China in Digital and Delivery. Our loyalty programs have over 80 million members between KFC and Pizza Hut and are ranked #1 in the restaurant industry worldwide in terms of number of members. Total delivery sales reached approximately US$700 million, and in 2016, we were #1 among restaurant operators in terms of online sales in China. Cashless payment accounted for about 30% of our company sales.

Yum China has a long and successful track record of doing business in China, and 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the launch of KFC in China. While we have achieved a lot in the past three decades, our growth plans give us confidence that we are well-positioned to drive strong operating performance and generate high returns for our shareholders over the long run. We believe the majority of our restaurants in China are yet to be built."

As detailed in our October 2016 investor conference.

New-Unit Development and Asset Upgrades

We believe development opportunities across China will provide us with new restaurant growth for all of our brands. Increasing urban population, continued development of city clusters and new transportation hubs provide growth opportunities for our nationwide development team.

  • Opened 575 new restaurants for the year and 302 for the fourth quarter, driven by development of the KFC brand.
  • 96 of the new restaurants were opened in 56 new cities.
  • Remodeled 791 restaurants, focused on KFC. Over 75% of Yum China's current store portfolio has been remodeled or built in the past five years.
  • Opened first Taco Bell restaurant in Shanghai, China.

Digital and Delivery Annual Update

Digital and delivery provide us with new growth opportunities. We are aggressively embracing leading technologies such as location-based service and mobile payment. Our delivery business has continued to grow with our own network and with the help of aggregators.

  • Members in the loyalty programs increased to over 60 million for KFC and over 20 million for Pizza Hut Casual Dining at year end.
  • Mobile payments reached about 17% of company sales in 2016, with over $2 billion in company sales paid using cashless payment methods.
  • Delivery represented about 10% of company sales for 2016.

Restaurant Margin

  • For the year, Yum China restaurant margin increased 2.7 percentage points to 15.3%, primarily aided by the impact of retail tax structure reform. This is reflected primarily in lower food and paper cost. Wage inflation of 8% partially offset these effects.
  • For the quarter, Yum China restaurant margin increased 3.0 percentage points to 11.0%, primarily aided by the impact of retail tax structure reform. Wage inflation companywide and commodity inflation at KFC partially offset these effects.

Diluted Share Count

Pursuant to the strategic investment agreement between Yum China, Primavera Capital Group ("Primavera"), and Zhejiang Ant Small and Micro Financial Services Group Co., Ltd. ("Ant Financial"), collectively referred to as strategic investors, Yum China issued approximately 19 million shares of common stock to Primavera and Ant Financial on November 1, 2016. The reported full year 2016 diluted share count of 369 million is based on the weighted average number of days for the period that the shares or dilutive equity awards were outstanding, and includes only two months of impact from the shares issued to our two strategic investors on November 1, 2016 and public company stock compensation programs. On a pro forma basis, assuming all shares and dilutive equity awards were issued and outstanding on January 1, 2016, the total diluted share count would be 395 million. This would have reduced diluted EPS to $1.27 from $1.36.

Reconciliation of Reported Results to Non-GAAP Measures
(amounts in US$ million, except for number of shares and per share amounts)
(unaudited)

In this press release:

  • The Company provides certain percentage changes excluding the impact of foreign currency translation ("F/X"). These amounts are derived by translating current year results at prior year average exchange rates. We believe the elimination of the foreign currency translation impact provides better year-to-year comparability without the distortion of foreign currency fluctuations.
  • System sales growth includes the results of all restaurants regardless of ownership, including Company-owned, franchise and unconsolidated affiliate restaurants that operate our concepts, except for non-Company-owned restaurants for which we do not receive a sales-based royalty. Sales of franchise and unconsolidated affiliate restaurants typically generate ongoing franchise fees for the Company at a rate of approximately 6% of system sales. Franchise and unconsolidated affiliate restaurant sales are not included in Company sales on the Consolidated and Combined Statements of Income; however, the franchise 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 revenue drivers, Company and franchise same-store sales as well as net unit growth.
  • Same-store sales growth is the estimated percentage change in sales of all restaurants that have been open and in the Company system one year or more.
  • Company Restaurant profit ("Restaurant profit") is defined as Company sales less expenses incurred directly by our Company-owned restaurants in generating Company sales. Company restaurant margin as a percentage of sales is defined as Restaurant profit divided by Company sales.

In addition to the results provided in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") in this press release, the Company provides non-GAAP measures which present Operating Profit before Special Items, Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share before Special Items, effective tax rate before Special Items and Adjusted EBITDA. Included in Special Items are reversal of (provision for) losses associated with planned sales of aircraft, incremental restaurant-level impairment upon spin-off, changes in fair value of financial instruments and impact of the redemption of the Little Sheep noncontrolling interest. These amounts are described in (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) in the accompanying notes. The Company excludes impact from Special Items for the purpose of evaluating performance internally. Special Items are not included in any of our segment results. These non-GAAP measures 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 measures provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present results, excluding those items that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial results, but should be read in conjunction with the unaudited Consolidated and Combined Summary of Results and other information presented herein. A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures follows.

Notes to the Consolidated and Combined Summary of Results, Consolidated and

Combined Balance Sheets

and Consolidated and Combined Statements of Cash Flows

(amounts in US$ million)

(unaudited)



(a)

Amounts presented as of and for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016 are unaudited, and the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 may contain updates to the information disclosed in this press release.



(b)

During 2015, we made the decision to dispose of a corporate aircraft in China and recognized a loss of $15 million associated with the planned sale of the aircraft for the year ended December 31, 2015. We completed the sale during 2016. The sale proceeds of $19 million was greater than the net book value of $17 million of the aircraft at the time of disposal, which resulted in the reversal of $2 million of the previously recognized loss.



(c)

Incremental restaurant-level impairment represents additional impairment as a result of including the impact from the license fee paid to YUM on the individual restaurants future cash flow, which is equal to 3% of net system sales. Such license fee did not impact the impairment assessment prior to the spin-off as it was considered an intercompany charge at the time, whereas it became a charge from a third party after the spin-off and therefore should be considered in the impairment assessment.



(d)

In connection with the investment agreement with strategic investors entered into on September 1, 2016, the Company issued 19,145,169 shares of common stock on November 1, 2016, subject to post-closing adjustment by December 30, 2016, and warrants to purchase additional shares of common stock. The post-closing adjustment and the warrants were accounted for as derivative instruments and liability-classified equity contracts, respectively. These financial instruments were initially measured at fair value on the date of issuance, with subsequent changes in fair value of $21 million recognized in earnings during the year ended December 31, 2016. No subsequent fair value measurements were recognized after December 30, 2016.



(e)

The tax benefit was determined based upon the impact of the nature of each Special Item tax effected at the 25% China tax rate or the 35% US tax rate, except for the $21 million changes in fair value of financial instruments associated with the strategic investment which resulted in no income tax expense. Additionally, during the year ended December 31, 2016, we recognized a tax benefit of $26 million related to the legal entity restructuring of our Little Sheep business. $12 million of this benefit was attributed to previous Little Sheep impairment losses recognized within Special Items in 2013 and 2014 and as such was classified as a Special Item consistent with the classification of those historical impairments.



(f)

During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Little Sheep founding shareholders sold their remaining 7% Little Sheep ownership interest to the Company pursuant to their redemption rights. The difference between the purchase price of less than $1 million, which was determined using a non-fair value based formula pursuant to the agreement governing the redemption rights, and the carrying value of their redeemable noncontrolling interests was recorded as an $8 million loss attributable to noncontrolling interests.
