Yum China Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

|Jul 29|magazine87 min read

SHANGHAI, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Yum China Holdings, Inc. (the "Company" or "Yum China") (NYSE: YUMC) today reported unaudited results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak and Mitigation Efforts 

Second quarter operations improved since the COVID-19 outbreak. More than 99% of stores in China are now open, with sales and profits trending unevenly. Sales improved sequentially in April and May but softened in June. Sales were primarily impacted by significantly reduced traffic at transportation and tourist locations, delayed and shortened school holidays and resurging regional infections. These factors and the lingering effect of COVID-19 continue to impact operations in July.

The unevenness in recovery was most pronounced in the differences between regions and trade zones. Eastern China recovered faster than other regions. Northern China's recovery was notably slower, primarily due to more stringent public health measures. Transportation and tourist locations, which accounted for high single digits of sales, continue to experience significant year over year traffic declines. The pace of recovery also varies across days of the week. Weekdays recovered the fastest as people returned to work and school, followed by weekends, with holidays lagging behind.

The Company's primary focus continues to be safety, efficiency and driving traffic. The Company drove traffic during the second quarter by leveraging its digital and operating capabilities and adapting to changing consumer demand. While dine-in improved when compared to the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, delivery and takeaway continued to grow year over year and contributed over half of Company sales in the second quarter. Member sales also grew double digits year over year and exceeded 60% of system sales. Digital ordering grew in popularity, accounting for approximately 80% of Company sales in the quarter.

Sales deleveraging and additional costs reduced restaurant margin and operating profit compared to the prior year period. Those negative impacts were partially offset by the realignment of our cost structure and labor productivity improvements. The Company also received one-time relief from landlords and government agencies.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Results for this quarter include the consolidation of the recently acquired Huang Ji Huang operations from the date of the acquisition on April 8, 2020.
  • Total revenues declined 11% year over year to $1.90 billion from $2.12 billion (a 7% decline excluding foreign currency translation ("F/X")).
  • Total system sales declined 4% year over year, with declines of 6% at KFC and 12% at Pizza Hut, excluding F/X (7% decline excluding the consolidation of Huang Ji Huang).
  • Same-store sales declined 11% year over year, with a 10% decline at KFC and 12% decline at Pizza Hut, excluding F/X.
  • Opened 169 new stores during the quarter. Including 607 Huang Ji Huang restaurants, total store count reached 9,954.
  • Restaurant margin was 13.7%, compared with 14.7% in the prior year period.
  • Operating Profit declined 38% year over year to $128 million from $204 million (35% decline excluding F/X). Adjusted Operating Profit declined 36% year over year to $132 million from $204 million (33% decline excluding F/X).
  • Effective tax rate was 25.2%.
  • Net Income declined 26% to $132 million from $178 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the decline in Operating Profit partially offset by gains from our equity investment in Meituan Dianping ("Meituan").
  • Adjusted Net Income declined 23% to $136 million from $178 million in the prior year period (35% decline excluding the $31 million and $17 million net gains in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, from our equity investment in Meituan, 31% decline if further excluding F/X).
  • Diluted EPS declined 26% to $0.34 from $0.46 in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Diluted EPS declined 24% to $0.35 from $0.46 in the prior year period (34% decline excluding the gains from our equity investment in Meituan in 2020 and 2019, 31% decline if further excluding F/X).
  • The Company sold a portion of its equity investment in Meituan during the quarter. The Company currently owns 4.2 million shares of Meituan.

Note:  All comparisons are versus the same period a year ago.

NM refers to changes over 100%, from negative to positive amounts or from zero to an amount.

Percentages may not recompute due to rounding.

System sales and same-store sales percentages exclude the impact of F/X. Effective January 1, 2018, temporary store closures are normalized in the same-store sales calculation by excluding the period during which stores are temporarily closed.

CEO and CFO Comments

"I am proud of the results we achieved in Q2. We continue to operate in a tough environment, facing significant headwinds from reduced traffic, particularly at transportation and tourist locations, delayed and shortened school holidays and regional resurgences of COVID-19 infections. Nevertheless, we continued to operate safely, serve our communities and recover sales, and remained profitable," said Joey Wat, CEO of Yum China. "I take great pride in our employees, who are committed to serving our customers and remained responsive to the circumstances on the ground. Our business model is resilient and adaptable. We quickly adjusted our operations and marketing campaigns to meet evolving consumer preferences and market limitations. Rapid innovation, our leading digital infrastructure and our membership program supported product launches and value offers that were necessary to drive traffic. We protected margins through the flexible cost structure we have developed and optimized over the years. These, along with our other core capabilities such as supply chain and operations, make me confident in our ability to navigate the challenges ahead."

Wat continued, "Seeing this great team in action, I am optimistic about our long-term prospects. Despite the uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, we grew our footprint. And in July, we reached a major milestone of 10,000 stores! Our 2020 target to open 800-850 gross new stores remains unchanged. With our innovation capabilities, strong digital strategy, and resilient business model, I believe we will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever, and ready to capture the exciting long-term market opportunity in China."

Andy Yeung, CFO of Yum China, added, "Our system sales recovered to 96% of the prior year, or 93% excluding Huang Ji Huang, in constant currency. Same-store sales also improved to 89% of the prior year, 4 percentage points higher than the first quarter. We are especially encouraged by the improvement at Pizza Hut, where same-store sales recovered from 69% in the first quarter to 88% in the second quarter. At Yum China, this is achieved amid ongoing reduced traffic at transportation and tourist locations, delayed and shortened school holidays, and resurging regional infections. The recovery is non-linear and uneven with differences across regions and trade zones. These impacts, together with the lingering effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, will continue to put pressure on our sales and operations in the third quarter."

Yeung continued, "Our realigned cost structure and productivity improvements helped us achieve a $128 million operating profit and generate strong free cash flow in the quarter. However, with restaurant traffic still below pre-outbreak levels and the global pandemic still evolving, we are prudently managing our financial position. We believe our financial strength enables us to respond to contingencies and invest in our top opportunities in the future."

Dividends and Share Repurchases

  • As announced in the first quarter 2020 earnings release, the Company temporarily suspended its share repurchases and, through the end of the third quarter of 2020, cash dividends on the Company's common stock.

Digital and Delivery 

  • As of June 30, 2020, the KFC and Pizza Hut loyalty programs had over 265 million members. During the quarter, member sales represented approximately 65% of KFC's system sales and 53% of Pizza Hut's system sales.
  • Delivery contributed to approximately 27% of KFC's Company sales and 35% of Pizza Hut's Company sales in the second quarter of 2020, up from approximately 18% and 24% from the prior year period, respectively.
  • Digital orders, including delivery, mobile orders and kiosk orders, accounted for approximately 86% of KFC's Company sales and 61% of Pizza Hut's Company sales in the second quarter of 2020, up from approximately 62% and 29% from the prior year period, respectively.

New-Unit Development and Asset Upgrade

  • The Company opened 169 new stores in the second quarter 2020, mainly driven by development of the KFC brand.
  • The Company remodeled 310 stores in the second quarter 2020.

Restaurant Margin

Restaurant margin was 13.7% in the second quarter of 2020, compared with 14.7% in the prior-year period, primarily attributable to same-store sales decline and value promotions, combined with wage and commodity inflation, partially offset by improved productivity and relief provided by landlords and government agencies.

2020 Outlook

The Company is affirming the following fiscal year 2020 targets, subject to revision based on future development of the COVID-19 situation:

  • To open between 800 and 850 new stores (gross), excluding Huang Ji Huang
  • To make capital expenditures between $500 million and $550 million

The Company believes that the COVID-19 outbreak will continue to have a material and extended adverse impact on its operational and financial results in 2020. Future operations, as well as the Company's cash flows and financial position, may be materially and adversely influenced by further developments related to this global outbreak, including potential additional announcements and actions from governments and local authorities, disruption in our supply chain, our inability to provide safety measures to protect our employees, or other reasons. Nevertheless, the Company is well-positioned to capture future growth opportunities through its resilient business model, strong capabilities and dedicated team.

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, excluding the period during which stores are temporarily closed. 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, including stores temporarily closed, 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 Non-GAAP Adjusted Measures

(in millions, except per share data)

(unaudited)

 

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") in this press release, the Company provides non-GAAP 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 Items for the year to date ended June 30, 2020 represent derecognition of indemnification assets related to Daojia and share-based compensation cost recognized for a special award of performance stock units ("Partner PSU Awards") granted to select employees which are described in the accompanying notes. The Special Item for the year to date ended June 30, 2019 represents impact from the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act"), 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 provides 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 non-GAAP adjusted measures is presented below.

Reconciliation of Reported GAAP Results to Non-GAAP Adjusted Measures

(in US$ million)

(unaudited)

 

(a) Amounts presented as of and for the quarters and years to date ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 are unaudited.

(b) In the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company derecognized a $3 million indemnification asset previously recorded for the Daojia acquisition as the indemnification right expired pursuant to the purchase agreement. The amount was included in Other income, net, as a deduction item, but was not allocated to any segment for performance reporting purposes.

(c) In February 2020, the Company granted Partner PSU Awards to select employees who were deemed critical to the Company's execution of its strategic operating plan. These PSU awards will only vest if threshold performance goals are achieved over a four-year performance period, with the payout ranging from 0% to 200% of the target number of shares subject to the PSU awards. Partner PSU Awards were granted to address increased competition for executive talent, motivate transformational performance and encourage management retention. Given the unique nature of these grants, the Compensation Committee does not intend to grant similar, special grants during the performance period. The impact from these special awards is excluded from metrics that management uses to assess the Company's performance. The Company recognized share-based compensation cost of $1 million and $2 million associated with the Partner PSU Awards for the quarter and year to date ended June 30, 2020, respectively. 

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

(e) We completed the evaluation of the impact on our transition tax computation based on the final regulations released by the U.S. Treasury Department and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service became effective in the first quarter of 2019, and recorded an additional tax expense of $8 million for the transition tax accordingly.
