DAVID GIBBS COMMENTS

David Gibbs, CEO, said “Our system sales grew 8% despite the difficult operating environment, a testament to the demand for our iconic brands and the unmatched operating capabilities of our world-class franchise partners. We set a Q1 development record, opening nearly 1,000 gross units. Momentum in our digital sales continued in the first quarter as a result of both continued system sales growth and digital mix expansion, reaching a Q1 record of approximately $6 billion.”

FIRST-QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Worldwide system sales grew 8%, excluding foreign currency translation, with KFC at 9%, Taco Bell at 8% and Pizza Hut at 3%.
  • We added 997 gross units during the first quarter resulting in 628 net-new units and 6% unit growth year-over-year.
  • Reported digital sales of approximately $6 billion, up 15% year-over-year with digital mix exceeding 40%.
  • Repurchased 3.4 million shares totaling approximately $407 million at an average price per share of $121.
  • Foreign currency translation unfavorably impacted divisional operating profit by $14 million.

All comparisons are versus the same period a year ago.

 

System sales growth figures exclude foreign currency translation ("F/X") and core operating profit growth figures exclude F/X and Special Items. Special Items are not allocated to any segment and therefore only impact worldwide GAAP results. See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results within this release for further details.

In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently believe to be immaterial could affect the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements should be evaluated with the understanding of their inherent uncertainty.

The forward-looking statements included in this announcement are only made as of the date of this announcement and we disclaim any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement to reflect subsequent events or circumstances.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results
(amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

In addition to the results provided in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company provides the following non-GAAP measurements.

  • Diluted Earnings Per Share ("EPS") excluding Special Items (as defined below);
  • Effective Tax Rate excluding Special Items;
  • Core Operating Profit. Core Operating Profit excludes Special Items and foreign currency translation (“F/X”) and we use Core Operating Profit for the purposes of evaluating performance internally;
  • Company restaurant profit and Company restaurant margin as a percentage of sales (as defined below).

These non-GAAP measurements 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 measurements provide additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations.

Special Items are not included in any of our Division segment results as the Company does not believe they are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature. Our chief operating decision maker does not consider the impact of Special Items when assessing segment performance. The Special Items are described in (a) - (d) in the accompanying notes.

Company restaurant profit is defined as Company sales less Company restaurant expenses, both of which appear on the face of our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. Company restaurant expenses include those expenses incurred directly by our Company-owned restaurants in generating Company sales, including cost of food and paper, cost of restaurant-level labor, rent, depreciation and amortization of restaurant-level assets and advertising expenses incurred by and on behalf of that Company restaurant. Company restaurant margin as a percentage of sales ("Company restaurant margin %") is defined as Company restaurant profit divided by Company sales. We use Company restaurant profit for the purposes of internally evaluating the performance of our Company-owned restaurants and we believe Company restaurant profit provides useful information to investors as to the profitability of our Company-owned restaurants. In calculating Company restaurant profit, the Company excludes revenues and expenses directly associated with our franchise operations as well as non-restaurant-level costs included in General and administrative expenses, some of which may support Company-owned restaurant operations. The Company also excludes restaurant-level asset impairment and closures expenses, which have historically not been significant, from the determination of Company restaurant profit as such expenses are not believed to be indicative of ongoing operations. Company restaurant profit and Company restaurant margin % as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies in the industry.

Certain non-GAAP measurements are presented excluding the impact of 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.

The above tables reconcile segment information, which is based on management responsibility, with our Condensed Consolidated Summary of Results. Corporate and unallocated expenses comprise items that are not allocated to segments for performance reporting purposes.

The Corporate and Unallocated column in the above tables includes, among other amounts, all amounts that we have deemed Special Items. See Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Summary of Results, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets
and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows
(amounts in millions)
(unaudited)

Amounts presented as of and for the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 are preliminary.

 

 

 

(a)

 

Due to their size and volatility, we have reflected as Special Items those refranchising gains and losses that were recorded in connection with our previously announced plans to have at least 98% franchise restaurant ownership by the end of 2018. As such, refranchising gains and losses recorded during 2022 and 2021 as Special Items are directly associated with restaurants that were refranchised prior to the end of 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

During the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, we recorded net refranchising gains of $4 million and $2 million, respectively, that have been reflected as a Special Item.

 

 

Additionally, we recorded net refranchising gains of less than $1 million and $13 million during the quarters ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, that have not been reflected as Special Items. These net gains relate to refranchising of restaurants in 2022 and 2021 that were not part of our aforementioned plans to achieve 98% franchise ownership and that we believe are now more indicative of our expected ongoing refranchising activity.

 

 

 

(b)

 

In the first quarter of 2022, as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we suspended all investment and restaurant development in Russia. We also suspended all operations of KFC company-owned restaurants in Russia and are finalizing an agreement to suspend all Pizza Hut operations in Russia, in partnership with our master franchisee. Further, we pledged to redirect any future net profits from operations in Russia to humanitarian efforts. Our Operating Results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, continue to reflect revenues and expenses related to Russia within their historical financial statement line items and operating segments. However, we have reclassed net operating profit attributable to Russia subsequent to the date of our pledge that had not yet been directed to humanitarian efforts as of March 31, 2022, from the Division segment results in which it was earned to Corporate and Unallocated. Such operating profit has been reflected within Other (income) expense and reflected as a Special Item.

 

 

 

(c)

 

Tax (Expense) Benefit on Special Items was determined based upon the impact of the nature, as well as the jurisdiction of the respective individual components within Special Items.

 

 

 

(d)

 

In January 2022, the U.S.Treasury published new regulations impacting foreign tax credit utilization beginning in the Company’s 2022 tax year. These regulations make foreign taxes paid to certain countries no longer creditable in the U.S. As a result, we reversed a valuation allowance associated with existing foreign tax credit carryforwards that we now believe will be used to offset these now non-creditable taxes in 2022 and future years. This valuation allowance reversal resulted in a one-time tax benefit of $82 million that was reflected as a Special Item.
