SEATTLE, July 27, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) today reported financial results for its 13-week fiscal third quarter ended June 27, 2021. GAAP results in fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020 include items that are excluded from non-GAAP results. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures at the end of this release for more information.

"Starbucks delivered record performance in the third quarter, demonstrating powerful momentum beyond recovery. Our ability to move with speed and agility and to be out in front of shifting customer behaviors has helped further differentiate Starbucks, positioning us well for this moment," said Kevin Johnson, president and ceo.

"As the Great Human Reconnection continues to unfold, our partners are rising to the occasion, ready to meet our customers wherever they need us to be – with the right store, in the right place, at the right time. Given the strength of our diverse portfolio and the elevated Starbucks Experience, as evidenced in our Q3 record results, we are raising our full-year financial outlook and are confident in our ability to continue to execute our ‘Growth at Scale’ agenda to unlock the full potential of the Starbucks brand," concluded Johnson.

Q3 Fiscal 2021 Highlights

  • Global comparable store sales increased 73%, driven by a 75% increase in comparable transactions, partially offset by a 1% decrease in average ticket

    • Americas comparable store sales increased 84%, driven by an 82% increase in comparable transactions and a 1% increase in average ticket; U.S. comparable store sales increased 83%, driven by an 80% increase in comparable transactions and a 1% increase in average ticket

    • International comparable store sales increased 41%, driven by a 55% increase in comparable transactions, partially offset by a 9% decline in average ticket; China comparable store sales increased 19%, driven by a 30% increase in transactions, partially offset by a 9% decline in average ticket; International and China comparable store sales include adverse impacts of approximately 5% and 6%, respectively, from lapping prior-year value-added tax exemptions in China

  • The company opened 352 net new stores in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, yielding 3% year-over-year unit growth, ending the period with a record 33,295 stores globally, of which 51% and 49% were company-operated and licensed, respectively

    • Stores in the U.S. and China comprised 62% of the company’s global portfolio at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2021, with 15,348 and 5,135 stores, respectively

  • Consolidated net revenues of $7.5 billion grew 78% compared to the prior year, mainly driven by a 73% increase in comparable store sales primarily from lapping the unfavorable impact of business disruption in the prior year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and strength in U.S. company-operated sales in the current year

  • GAAP operating margin of 19.9% increased from -16.7% in the prior year primarily driven by sales leverage from business recovery and the lapping of COVID-19 related costs in the prior year, as well as pricing in the Americas, partially offset by investments in wages and benefits for store partners; GAAP operating margin also benefited from higher restructuring activities in the prior year primarily associated with the Americas Trade Area Transformation

    • Non-GAAP operating margin of 20.5%, up from -12.6% in the prior year

  • GAAP earnings per share of $0.97, up from a loss of $0.58 in the prior year

    • Non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.01, up from a loss of $0.46 in the prior year

Includes only Starbucks® company-operated stores open 13 months or longer. Comparable store sales exclude the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and Siren Retail stores. Stores that are temporarily closed or operating at reduced hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic remain in comparable store sales while stores identified for permanent closure have been removed.

Net revenues for the Americas segment grew 92% over Q3 FY20 to $5.4 billion in Q3 FY21, primarily driven by an 84% increase in company-operated comparable store sales driven primarily from lapping the unfavorable impact of business disruption in the prior year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and strength in U.S. company-operated sales in the current year.

Operating income increased to $1.3 billion in Q3 FY21, up from an operating loss of $404.9 million in Q3 FY20. Operating margin of 24.4% expanded 3,880 basis points, primarily driven by sales leverage from business recovery, the lapping of higher COVID-19 related costs in the prior year, pricing and benefits of the Americas Trade Area Transformation, partially offset by investments in wages and benefits for store partners coupled with increased supply chain costs due to inflationary pressures. The pandemic-related costs incurred in the prior year were largely catastrophe and service pay for store partners, partially offset by government subsidies. Operating margin also benefited from lower restructuring expenses primarily associated with the Americas Trade Area Transformation.

Stores that are temporarily closed or operating at reduced hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic remain in comparable store sales while stores identified for permanent closure have been removed. For the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the International segment's comparable store sales included a 5% adverse impact from lapping the prior-year value-added tax benefit in China.

Net revenues for the International segment grew 75% over Q3 FY20 to $1.7 billion in Q3 FY21, driven by a 41% increase in comparable store sales primarily due to lapping the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the prior year, higher product sales to and royalty revenues from our licensees including the lapping of temporary royalty relief granted in the prior year, 1,175 net new store openings, or 8% store growth, over the past 12 months, and a 10% favorable impact from foreign currency translation.

Operating income increased to $318.3 million in Q3 FY21 compared to an operating loss of $86.0 million in Q3 FY20. Operating margin of 19.2% increased from -9.1% in the prior year, primarily driven by sales leverage due to lapping the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including temporary royalty relief to international licensees and higher catastrophe wages in the prior year and, to a lesser extent, labor efficiencies across company-operated markets and favorability from higher temporary government subsidies.

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment of $414.0 million in Q3 FY21 were 7% lower relative to Q3 FY20. The decline was primarily driven by a 20% unfavorable impact of Global Coffee Alliance transition-related activities, including a structural change in our single-serve business, partially offset by higher product sales and royalties in the Global Coffee Alliance and growth in our ready-to-drink business.

Operating income increased 74% to $216.0 million in Q3 FY21, up from $124.2 million in Q3 FY20. Operating margin expanded 2,440 basis points to 52.2%, primarily due to Global Coffee Alliance related activities, including the structural change in our single-serve business and growth in our ready-to-drink business.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained herein and in our investor conference call related to these results are "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of the applicable securities laws and regulations. Generally, these statements can be identified by the use of words such as "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "forecast," "intend," "may," "outlook," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "remain," "should," "will," "would," and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These statements include statements relating to: the estimated financial impact related to the COVID-19 pandemic including the outlook, guidance and projections for revenues, earnings per share, operating income, operating margins, comparable store sales, net new stores, capital expenditures, interest expense and fiscal 2021 guidance; the nature and extent of the continuing impact of COVID-19 on our business, operations and financial results; our sustainability goals and initiatives; the recovery of our business; our ability to emerge from this global crisis and drive long-term growth; and the expected sale of our ownership share in and our future relationship with Starbucks Coffee Korea Co. These forward-looking statements do not represent historical data, are based on currently available operating, financial and competitive information and are subject to a number of significant risks and uncertainties. Actual future results and trends may differ materially depending on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to: further spread of COVID-19 and its variants; regulatory measures or voluntary actions that may be put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19, including restrictions on business operations or social distancing requirements and the duration and efficacy of such restrictions and the world-wide distribution and acceptance of vaccines; the potential for a resurgence of COVID-19 infections in a given geographic region after it has hit its "peak"; fluctuations in U.S. and international economies and currencies; our ability to preserve, grow and leverage our brands; the ability of our business partners and third-party providers to fulfill their responsibilities and commitments; potential negative effects of incidents involving food or beverage-borne illnesses, tampering, adulteration, contamination or mislabeling; potential negative effects of material breaches of our information technology systems to the extent we experience a material breach; material failures of our information technology systems; costs associated with, and the successful execution of, the company’s initiatives and plans, including the successful expansion of our Global Coffee Alliance with Nestlé; our ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms; the acceptance of the company’s products by our customers, evolving consumer preferences and tastes and the availability of consumer financing; changes in the availability and cost of labor; significant increased logistic costs, including but not limited to inflationary pressures; the impact of competition; inherent risks of operating a global business; the prices and availability of coffee, dairy and other raw materials; the effect of legal proceedings; and the effects of changes in tax laws and related guidance and regulations that may be implemented and other risks detailed in the company filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the "Risk Factors" sections of Starbucks Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 27, 2020 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 28, 2021. The company assumes no obligation to update any of these forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain non-GAAP measures included in our press release and in our investor conference call related to these results were not reconciled to the comparable GAAP financial measures because the GAAP measures are not accessible on a forward-looking basis. The company is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because the company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP measures for these periods but would not impact the non-GAAP measures. Such items may include acquisitions, divestitures, restructuring and other items. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the company’s GAAP financial results.

Two-year Comparable Store Sales

The two-year comparable store sales metric discussed in today's investor conference call is calculated as ((1 + % change in comparable store sales in FY20) * (1 + % change in comparable store sales in FY21)) - 1. Refer to footnote 1 in the Segment Results and Supplemental Information sections in this press release for definitions of change in comparable store sales.

Key Metrics

Our financial results and long-term growth model will continue to be driven by new store openings, comparable store sales and operating margin management. These key operating metrics are important indicators for the growth of our business and the effectiveness of our marketing and operational strategies.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, or alternatives for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Our non-GAAP financial measures of non-GAAP G&A, non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP operating income/(loss) growth, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings/(loss) per share exclude the below-listed items and their related tax impacts, as they do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company’s future operating performance or comparisons to the company's past operating performance. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to non-GAAP G&A, non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP operating income/(loss) growth, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings/(loss) per share are general and administrative expenses, operating income/(loss), operating income/(loss) growth, operating margin, effective tax rate and diluted net earnings/(loss) per share, respectively.

Non-GAAP Exclusion

Rationale

Restructuring and impairment costs

Management excludes restructuring and impairment costs relating to the write-down of certain company-operated store and intangible assets. Management excludes these items for reasons discussed above. These expenses are anticipated to be completed within a finite period of time.

Integration costs

Management excludes integration costs and amortization of the acquired intangible assets for reasons discussed above. Additionally, the majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time.

Nestlé transaction and integration-related costs

Management excludes the transaction and integration-related costs related to the Global Coffee Alliance with Nestlé (inclusive of incremental costs to grow and develop the alliance) for reasons discussed above.

Non-GAAP G&A, non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP operating income/(loss) growth, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings/(loss) per share 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.

Certain non-GAAP measures included in this report were not reconciled to the comparable GAAP financial measures because the GAAP measures are not accessible on a forward-looking basis. The company is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because the company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP measures for these periods but would not impact the non-GAAP measures. Such items may include acquisitions, divestitures, restructuring and other items. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the company’s GAAP financial results.
