CEO and CFO Comments

"We are pleased to report another set of strong operating results for the second quarter, reflecting the resilience of our business model and our ability to capitalize on our digital, data and delivery capabilities," said Joey Wat, CEO of Yum China. "We delivered a 10% increase in system sales in constant currency, marking our eleventh consecutive quarter of system sales growth since the spin-off. This strong result was driven by solid second quarter sales performance at both core brands with KFC and Pizza Hut delivering 5% and 1% same-store sales growth, respectively, and an ongoing acceleration of new store openings at KFC. We are also pleased to have delivered a 14% increase in operating profit in constant currency despite margin pressure from ongoing promotions and chicken and wage inflation."

"Looking forward, we expect overall sales growth to moderate as KFC begins to lap several key sales drivers, including successful value campaigns that we initiated in the second half of 2018. However, we remain confident that our strong foundation and commitment to innovation throughout our business will power continued growth for Yum China. We will continue to create new and exciting menu items, and leverage our leadership in digital, data and delivery to meet the evolving needs of our consumers."

Jacky Lo, CFO of Yum China, added, "We continued to capitalize on market opportunities across China with aggressive, KFC-led store expansion and achieved a total store count of 8,751 at the end of the second quarter. With a strong cash payback period for new KFC stores and many untapped opportunities, we intend to continue to rapidly expand our store footprint in the second half of the year. We now expect full year 2019 gross new store openings to be between 800 and 850 units with accelerating development of new units across multiple brands."

"The ongoing expansion and strong operating performance fueled robust free cash flow generation in the second quarter, enabling us to return capital to our shareholders by repurchasing $75 million of shares and paying $45 million in dividends during the period. We are confident that our focus on profitable and sustainable growth will enable us to continue to generate significant value for our shareholders over the long term."

Dividend and Share Repurchase

  • The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.12 per share on Yum China's common stock, payable as of the close of business on September 17, 2019 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 27, 2019.
  • During the second quarter, we repurchased approximately 1.8 million shares of Yum China common stock for $74.9 million at an average price of $42.60 per share.

Digital and Delivery 

  • As of June 30, 2019, the KFC loyalty program had over 185 million members and the Pizza Hut loyalty program had over 60 million members, an increase of 50 million and 15 million, respectively, year over year.
  • Digital payments accounted for 90% of Company sales in the quarter, an increase of 5 percentage points year over year.
  • Delivery contributed to 20% of Company sales in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 4 percentage points year over year. Delivery services are now available in 1,190 cities, up from 1,010 cities in the prior year period.

New-Unit Development and Asset Upgrade

  • The Company opened 178 new restaurants and remodeled 238 restaurants in the second quarter of 2019.

2019 Outlook

  • The Company is updating its fiscal year 2019 targets as follows:

    - Capital expenditures between $475 million and $525 million.
  • The Company continues to expect a fiscal year 2019 effective tax rate below 28%, excluding any impact from the Company's equity investment in Meituan Dianping.

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 F/X impact provides better year-to-year comparability without the distortion of foreign currency fluctuations.
  • System sales growth reflects the results of all restaurants regardless of ownership, including Company-owned, franchise and unconsolidated affiliate restaurants that operate our restaurant 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 in the Condensed Consolidated 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.
  • Effective January 1, 2018, the Company revised its definition of same-store sales growth to represent the estimated percentage change in sales of food of all restaurants in the Company system that have been open prior to the first day of our prior fiscal year. We refer to these as our "base" stores. Previously, same-store sales growth represented the estimated percentage change in sales of all restaurants in the Company system that have been open for one year or more, and the base stores changed on a rolling basis from month to month. This revision was made to align with how management measures performance internally and focuses on trends of a more stable base of stores.
  • 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 percentage is defined as Restaurant profit divided by Company sales.

Reconciliation of Reported GAAP Results to Adjusted Measures
(in millions, except per share data)
(unaudited)

In addition to the results provided in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") in this press release, the Company provides measures adjusted for Special Items, which include Adjusted Operating Profit, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate and Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as net income including noncontrolling interests adjusted for income tax, interest income, net, investment gain or loss, depreciation, amortization and other items, including store impairment charges and Special Items. The Special Item for the year to date ended June 30, 2019 represents the impact from the US Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act"), as described in the accompanying notes. The Special Item for the year to date ended June 30, 2018 represents a gain recognized from the re-measurement of our previously held equity interest in Wuxi KFC at fair value upon acquisition, as described 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. In addition, the Company provides Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that investors and analysts may find it useful in measuring operating performance without regard to items such as income tax, interest income, net, investment gain or loss, depreciation, amortization and other items, including store impairment charges and Special Items. These adjusted 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 adjusted measures provide 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 nature.  These adjusted measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial results, but should be read in conjunction with the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and other information presented herein. A reconciliation of the most directly comparable GAAP measures to adjusted measures follows.

(b) As a result of the acquisition of Wuxi KFC in the first quarter of 2018, the Company recognized a gain of $98 million from the re-measurement of our previously held 47% equity interest at fair value, which was not allocated to any segment for performance reporting purposes.

(c) The tax expense was determined based upon the nature, as well as the jurisdiction, of each Special Item at the applicable tax rate.

(d) We completed the evaluation of the impact on our transition tax computation based on the final regulations released by the US Treasury Department and the IRS in the first quarter of 2019 and recorded an additional amount of $8 million for the transition tax accordingly.

The above tables reconcile segment information, which is based on management responsibility, with our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. 

(1) Starting from the first quarter of 2019, our newly developed COFFii & JOY concept and e-commerce business became operating segments, as their financial results started being regularly reviewed by the Company's chief operating decision maker. Accordingly, our six non-reportable operating segments, reflecting the operations of East Dawning, Little Sheep, Taco Bell, Daojia, COFFii & JOY and our e-commerce business, are combined and referred to as All Other Segments, as those operating segments are insignificant both individually and in the aggregate. Segment financial information for prior quarters has been recast to align with this change in segment reporting. There was no impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company as a result of this change.

(2) Corporate and unallocated expenses comprise items that are not allocated to segments for performance reporting purposes. Amount includes revenues and expenses associated with transactions with franchisees and unconsolidated affiliates such as inventory procurement and other services provided to franchisees and unconsolidated affiliates. The Corporate and Unallocated column in the above tables includes, among other amounts, all amounts that we have deemed Special Items. See "Reconciliation of Reported GAAP Results to Adjusted Measures".
