Starbucks Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2009 Results

Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX) today reported financial results for its second quarter ended March 29, 2009.

Fiscal Second Quarter 2009 Highlights:

  • Net revenues of $2.3 billion, a decrease of 7.6 percent
  • Comparable store sales of negative eight percent; compared to negative nine percent in Q1 2009
  • Cost reduction of approximately $120 million versus target of $100 million
  • EPS of $0.03; Non-GAAP EPS (excluding restructuring) of $0.16

“During the second quarter, we began to see signs of traction from the cost reduction and customer-facing initiatives we’ve undertaken over the past year,” said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and ceo. “Our focus on delivering value while staying true to the premium quality and values of the brand, is paying off,” added Schultz. “Our recent introduction of Starbucks VIATM Ready Brew is a notable case in point and is showing significant promise in multiple channels.”

“We are encouraged by the progress we have made to date on our cost saving initiatives, which has resulted in non-GAAP operating margin stabilization,” commented Troy Alstead, executive vice president and cfo. “We are building a healthier and more sustainable business model to support the company into the future and deliver value to our shareholders.”

For the second quarter of fiscal 2009, consolidated revenues were $2.3 billion compared with $2.5 billion for the second fiscal quarter of 2008, primarily driven by an eight percent decline in comparable store sales due to a five percent decline in the number of customer transactions and a three percent decrease in the average value per transaction.

Restructuring charges due to store closures, lower valuation of corporate real estate, and a reduction in non-retail positions impacted operating income and operating margin in the second fiscal quarter by $152.1 million and 650 basis points, respectively. As a result, for the 13 weeks ended March 29, 2009, operating income was $40.9 million and operating margin was 1.8 percent compared with operating income of $178.2 million and operating margin of 7.1 percent for the second fiscal quarter of 2008. On a non-GAAP basis (excluding restructuring charges), second fiscal quarter 2009 operating income was $193.0 million and operating margin was 8.3 percent. These amounts compare with non-GAAP operating income of $213.3 million and non-GAAP operating margin of 8.4 percent for the second fiscal quarter of 2008. Non-GAAP amounts in the second quarter of fiscal 2008 exclude $35.1 million of costs specifically related to the company’s transformation efforts, which were initiated in January 2008.

Net earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 were $25.0 million compared with $108.7 million for the same period a year ago. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2009 was $0.03 versus $0.15 for the 13 weeks ended March 31, 2008. Non-GAAP net earnings for the second quarter fiscal 2009 were $121.1 million and non-GAAP EPS was $0.16. This compares with non-GAAP net earnings of $130.9 million and non-GAAP EPS of $0.18 for the same period a year ago, which excludes $35.1 million or $0.03 per share in transformation-related costs.

Cost Reduction Initiatives

Starbucks continues to make good progress on its fiscal 2009 target to reduce costs by $500 million. In the second quarter of fiscal 2009, the company delivered $120 million in cost savings, exceeding the targeted $100 million for the second quarter, and resulting in year-to-date cost savings of approximately $195 million. Starbucks expects to deliver cost savings of approximately $150 million in the third quarter, and approximately $175 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.

Restructuring Charges

Restructuring charges of $152.1 million for the quarter were primarily due to asset impairments, lease exit, and other costs associated with the closure of 123 U.S. company-operated stores, which accounted for $102.7 million of restructuring charges. The balance of the restructuring charges was attributable to severance charges related to the global workforce reduction of non-store partners announced on January 28, 2009, and the associated revaluation of corporate real estate facilities, as well as store impairment charges for International stores identified for closure. Starbucks actions to rationalize its global store portfolio have included the July 2008 and January 2009 announcements of plans to close a total of approximately 800 company-operated stores in the U.S., restructure its Australia market and close 61 stores, and close approximately 100 other company-operated stores internationally. Since those announcements, 507 U.S. stores and 64 International stores have been closed. The majority of the remaining store closures are expected to occur by the end of fiscal 2009, and the related lease exit costs are expected to be recognized concurrently with the actual closures.

YTD Financial Results

For the 26 week period ended March 29, 2009, consolidated net revenues declined 6.5 percent to $4.9 billion, compared with $5.3 billion for the first half of fiscal 2008. Restructuring charges associated with the store closures and workforce reductions in positions impacted operating income and operating margin for the first half of fiscal 2009 by $227.6 million and 460 basis points, respectively. As a result, for the fiscal year-to-date period ended March 29, 2009, operating income was $158.6 million and operating margin was 3.2 percent. Non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin, which exclude restructuring charges, were $386.2 million and 7.8 percent for the first half of fiscal 2009, respectively. This compared with non-GAAP operating income of $546.4 million and non-GAAP operating margin of 10.3 percent for the first half of fiscal 2008, each of which excluded transformation-related costs totaling $35.1 million.

Net earnings totaled $89.3 million and EPS was $0.12 for the 26-weeks ended March 29, 2009, versus $316.8 million and $0.43, respectively, for the same period a year ago. Excluding restructuring charges, non-GAAP net earnings were $234.2 million and non-GAAP EPS was $0.32 for the first half of fiscal 2009. This compares with non-GAAP net earnings of $339.0 million and non-GAAP EPS of $0.46 for the same period a year ago, which excludes $35.1 million, or $0.03 per share, in transformation-related costs.

U.S. Segment Results

For the second quarter of fiscal 2009, U.S. total net revenues were $1.8 billion, a decline of $131.5 million, or 6.8 percent, due to decreased revenues from company-operated retail stores. U.S. comparable store sales declined eight percent, due to a five percent decline in the number of transactions and a three percent decrease in the average value per transaction. Specialty revenues declined 3.9 percent to $202.6 million, driven by softer foodservice revenues.

For the second quarter, the U.S. segment produced operating income of $90.6 million, compared with $193.9 million for the same period a year ago. Operating margin was 5.0 percent of related revenues for the second quarter fiscal 2009 compared with 10.0 percent in the corresponding period of fiscal 2008. This decrease was driven by restructuring charges of $106.8 million recorded in the period, which had a 590 basis point impact.

Excluding restructuring charges, U.S. segment non-GAAP operating margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 was 10.9 percent versus non-GAAP operating margin of 11.5 percent for the same period a year ago, which excludes transformation-related costs. As a percent of total revenues, cost of sales including occupancy costs increased to 42.3 percent during the second quarter of fiscal 2009, compared with 41.4 percent for the prior-year period, due to both higher occupancy costs resulting from the impact of deleverage, and higher beverage costs as a result of new product innovations and higher coffee costs. Partially offsetting this increase was lower other operating expenses, which decreased 60 basis points to 2.3 percent of total revenues, primarily due to the reduction in force within our Specialty operations.

International Segment Results

International total net revenues were $433.7 million for the 13 weeks ended March 29, 2009, down $59.7 million, or 12.1 percent, compared with the same period last year, primarily due to the impact of a stronger U.S. dollar relative to the British pound and Canadian dollar. Also contributing to the decrease in International revenues was a three percent decline in comparable store sales, due to a two percent decline in the number of transactions and a one percent decrease in the average value per transaction. The UK and Canadian markets reported negative comparable store sales for the quarter.

International operating income decreased to $6.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 versus $17.8 million for the same period a year ago, with the related operating margin contracting 220 basis points to 1.4 percent of related revenues, from 3.6 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2008. This decrease was driven by restructuring charges of $14.9 million recorded in the period, which had a 340 basis point impact. Excluding restructuring charges, non-GAAP operating margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 was 4.8 percent versus non-GAAP operating margin of 5.1 percent for the same period a year ago, which excludes transformation-related costs.

Global Consumer Products Group Segment Results

Global Consumer Products Group (CPG) total net revenues decreased by two percent to $94.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2009, due primarily to lower margin on sales of packaged coffee as a result of discounting, as well as lower volume to the trade.

Operating income for the CPG segment increased to $45.3 million for the 13 weeks ended March 29, 2009, a six percent increase over the $42.7 million reported for the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Operating margin increased 350 basis points to 47.8 percent of related revenues from 44.3 percent for the prior year period. This increase was due primarily to lower income from equity investees in the second quarter fiscal 2008 resulting from product write-offs within the North American Coffee Partnership in that period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

For the 26-week period ended March 29, 2009, cash flow from operations was $715 million, compared with $765 million for the same period in fiscal 2008, while capital expenditures for the first half of fiscal 2009 declined to $237 million versus $505 million for the prior-year period. Free cash flow for the 26 weeks ended March 29, 2009 was $479 million and was used to reduce short-term debt. Starbucks defines free cash flow as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. At the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2009, Starbucks short-term borrowings were $226 million, and cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $295 million, $69 million in excess of the company’s short-term borrowings balance.

Fiscal 2009 Targets

Starbucks now expects to add approximately 20 net new stores to its global store base in fiscal 2009. This revised target includes a net reduction of approximately 425 company-operated stores in the U.S. and the net addition of approximately 60 company-operated stores internationally. The company now expects to open approximately 65 net new licensed stores in the U.S. and approximately 320 net new licensed stores internationally.

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2009 remain unchanged, at approximately $600 million. Additionally, as announced in March, Starbucks fiscal year 2009 cash from operations is expected to exceed $1 billion, with resulting free cash flow in excess of $500 million.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS), and non-GAAP store operating expense as a percentage of related retail revenue (non-GAAP store operating expense ratio), as well as free cash flow. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP earnings per share (non-GAAP EPS), and non-GAAP store operating expense ratio are operating income, operating margin, net earnings, diluted net earnings per share, and store operating expense as a percentage of related retail revenue, respectively. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to free cash flow is cash flow from operations (or net cash provided by operating activities).

The non-GAAP financial measures provided in this release for fiscal 2009, other than free cash flow, exclude restructuring charges, primarily related to company-operated store closures and the impacts of the recent global workforce reductions. The non-GAAP financial measures provided in this release for fiscal 2008 exclude costs related to the company’s transformation efforts during such periods consisting primarily of charges related to slowing the pace of U.S. store openings and the associated termination of future site commitments, related inventory and store assets. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures (or net additions to property, plant and equipment). The company’s management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures better enables investors to understand and evaluate the company’s historical and prospective operating performance. More specifically, for historical non-GAAP financial measures other than free cash flow, management excludes each of those items mentioned above because it believes that these costs do not reflect expected future operating expenses and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company’s future operating performance or comparisons to the company’s past operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and 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.
