Total revenues grew 4% or 10% in constant currency;

Total system sales grew 9% and same-store sales grew 4% in constant currency

SHANGHAI, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Yum China Holdings, Inc. (the "Company" or "Yum China") (YUMC) today reported unaudited results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. Reported GAAP results include Special Items, which are excluded from adjusted measures. Special Items are not allocated to any segment and therefore only impact reported GAAP results of Yum China.  See "Reconciliation of Reported GAAP Results to Adjusted Measures" within this release.

First Quarter Highlights

  • Total revenues increased 4% year over year to $2.3 billion from $2.2 billion (10% year over year increase excluding foreign currency translation ("F/X")).
  • Total system sales grew 9% year over year, with growth of 11% at KFC and 3% at Pizza Hut, excluding F/X.
  • Same-store sales grew 4% year over year, with growth of 5% at KFC and 1% at Pizza Hut, excluding F/X.
  • Restaurant margin was 18.5%, as compared with 17.9% in the prior year period.
  • Operating Profit decreased 23% year over year to $303 million from $395 million (18% year over year decrease excluding F/X), primarily due to lapping the gain of $98 million from the re-measurement of our previously held equity interest at Wuxi KFC in the first quarter 2018. Excluding the gain in 2018, Adjusted Operating Profit increased 2% year over year (9% year over year increase excluding F/X).
  • Net Income decreased 23% to $222 million from $288 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the Wuxi re-measurement gain in the first quarter 2018.
  • Due to the release of final regulations regarding the transition tax under the US Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Company recognized a tax charge of $8 million in the first quarter 2019. Excluding the Wuxi re-measurement gain and transition tax charge, Adjusted Net Income increased 7% to $230 million.
  • Effective tax rate was 28.9%. Excluding the transition tax charge, the effective tax rate was 26.5%.
  • Diluted EPS decreased 21% to $0.57 from $0.72 in the prior year period. Adjusted Diluted EPS increased 11% to $0.59 from $0.53 in the prior year period (8% year over year increase excluding the $0.02 per share mark to market gain of our equity investment in Meituan Dianping).
  • Opened 237 new restaurants during the quarter, bringing total store count to 8,653 across more than 1,300 cities.

CEO and CFO Comments

"We are pleased to report a very strong start to 2019 as we delivered a 9% increase in system sales in constant currency in the first quarter, our tenth consecutive quarter of system sales growth since the spin-off," said Joey Wat, CEO of Yum China. "This resilient growth was driven by another robust quarter at KFC, which successfully lapped three strong first quarters between 2016 and 2018, and a very encouraging quarter at Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut delivered positive same-store sales growth and a significant improvement in profitability in the first quarter, while continuing to make strategic investments in value offerings and multiple other initiatives to drive the ongoing revitalization of the brand."

"During the first quarter, we opened 237 stores, led by an acceleration of KFC openings, as we continued to identify attractive opportunities to expand our presence in underserved markets. We also continued to invest in enhancing our digital and delivery capabilities, which are vital drivers of same-store sales growth across our portfolio of brands," added Ms. Wat.

"We achieved a 9% increase in adjusted operating profit during the first quarter, excluding special items and F/X, as sales leverage at KFC and a notable improvement in Pizza Hut's margin offset cost inflation and increased promotions," said Jacky Lo, CFO of Yum China. "This enabled us to continue to generate significant cash flow and fund shareholder returns. During the quarter, we returned $111 million to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and cash dividends. Looking ahead, based on our current pipeline, we are confident that our 2019 gross new openings will exceed the top end of our original target of 600 to 650 stores. While we expect poultry inflation to weigh on margins for the rest of the year, and Pizza Hut's revitalization program is still ongoing, the long-term outlook for growth remains positive and we remain committed to generating significant value for our shareholders."

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 June 17, 2019 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 28, 2019.
  • During the first quarter, we repurchased approximately 1.7 million shares of Yum China common stock for $64.7 million at an average price of $37.90 per share.

Digital and Delivery 

  • As of March 31, 2019, the KFC loyalty program had over 175 million members and the Pizza Hut loyalty program had over 55 million members, an increase of 50 million and 15 million, respectively, year over year.
  • Digital payments accounted for 87% of Company sales in the quarter, an increase of 13 percentage points year over year.
  • Delivery contributed to 19% of Company sales in the first quarter of 2019, an increase of 3 percentage points year over year. Delivery services are now available in 1,160 cities, up from 972 cities in the prior year period.

New-Unit Development and Asset Upgrade

  • The Company opened 237 new restaurants and remodeled 96 restaurants in the first quarter of 2019.

Restaurant Margin

  • In the first quarter of 2019, Yum China restaurant margin was 18.5%, as compared with 17.9% in the prior year period, primarily attributable to sales leverage, improved utility efficiency and labor productivity, partially offset by commodity and wage inflations and increased promotional activities during the period.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncement

  • Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted a new accounting standard for leases using a modified retrospective method, under which prior period results were not retrospectively adjusted.
  • Upon adoption, we recognized right-of-use assets and lease liabilities of approximately $2.0 billion and $2.2 billion respectively. In addition, an impairment of $60 million (net of related impact on deferred taxes and noncontrolling interests) on right-of-use assets arising from existing operating leases as of January 1, 2019 was recorded as an adjustment to retained earnings, as the additional impairment charge would have been recorded before adoption had the operating lease right-of-use assets been recognized at the time of impairment. We performed an additional impairment evaluation of long-lived assets of restaurants as a result of adopting the new accounting standard and recorded an incremental impairment charge of $12 million in the first quarter of 2019.

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 US$ million, except for 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 quarter ended March 31, 2019 represents impact from the US Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act") , as described in the accompanying notes. The Special Item for the quarter ended March 31, 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. 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.

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, including the operations of East Dawning, Little Sheep, Taco Bell, Daojia, COFFii & JOY and 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".

(a)      Amounts presented as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018 are unaudited.

(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.
