Q2 Consolidated Net Revenues Down 2% to $8.6 Billion, Driven by a Complex Operating Environment

Q2 GAAP and Non-GAAP EPS of $0.68; Long-Term Strategy Remains Intact

Q2 Active U.S. Starbucks® Rewards Membership Totals 32.8 Million, Up 6% Over Prior Year

Starbucks Corporation (Nasdaq: SBUX) today reported financial results for its 13-week fiscal second quarter ended March 31, 2024. GAAP results in fiscal 2024 and fiscal 2023 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.

Q2 Fiscal 2024 Highlights

  • Global comparable store sales declined 4%, driven by a 6% decline in comparable transactions, partially offset by a 2% increase in average ticket
    • North America and U.S. comparable store sales declined 3%, driven by a 7% decline in comparable transactions, partially offset by a 4% increase in average ticket
    • International comparable store sales declined 6%, driven by a 3% decline in both comparable transactions and average ticket; China comparable store sales declined 11%, driven by an 8% decline in average ticket and a 4% decline in comparable transactions
  • The company opened 364 net new stores in Q2, ending the period with 38,951 stores: 52% company-operated and 48% licensed
    • At the end of Q2, stores in the U.S. and China comprised 61% of the company’s global portfolio, with 16,600 and 7,093 stores in the U.S. and China, respectively
  • Consolidated net revenues declined 2%, to $8.6 billion, or a 1% decline on a constant currency basis
  • GAAP operating margin contracted 240 basis points year-over-year to 12.8%, primarily driven by deleverage, incremental investments in store partner wages and benefits, increased promotional activities, lapping the gain on the sale of Seattle's Best Coffee brand, as well as higher general and administrative costs primarily in support of Reinvention. This decline was partially offset by pricing and in-store operational efficiencies.
    • Non-GAAP operating margin contracted 150 basis points year-over-year to 12.8%, or contracted 140 basis points on a constant currency basis
  • GAAP earnings per share of $0.68 declined 14% over prior year
    • Non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.68 declined 8% over prior year, or declined 7% on a constant currency basis
  • Starbucks Rewards loyalty program 90-day active members in the U.S. totaled 32.8 million, up 6% year-over-year

“In a highly challenged environment, this quarter's results do not reflect the power of our brand, our capabilities or the opportunities ahead,” commented Laxman Narasimhan, chief executive officer. “It did not meet our expectations, but we understand the specific challenges and opportunities immediately in front of us. We have a clear plan to execute and the entire organization is mobilized around it. We are very confident in our long-term and know that our Triple Shot Reinvention with Two Pumps strategy will deliver on the limitless potential of this brand,” Narasimhan added.

“While it was a difficult quarter, we learned from our own underperformance and sharpened our focus with a comprehensive roadmap of well thought out actions making the path forward clear,” commented Rachel Ruggeri, chief financial officer. “On this path, we remain committed to our disciplined approach to capital allocation as we navigate this complex and dynamic environment,” Ruggeri added.

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 remain in comparable store sales while stores identified for permanent closure have been removed.

Net revenues for the North America segment of $6.4 billion in Q2 FY24 were flat to Q2 FY23, primarily driven by a 3% decline in comparable store sales, driven by a 7% decline in comparable transactions, partially offset by a 4% increase in average ticket. This decline was offset by net new company-operated store growth of 5% over the past 12 months, as well as growth in our licensed store business.

Operating income decreased to $1.1 billion in Q2 FY24 compared to $1.2 billion in Q2 FY23. Operating margin of 18.0% contracted from 19.1% in the prior year, primarily driven by deleverage, incremental investments in store partner wages and benefits, and increased promotional activity. This contraction was partially offset by pricing and in-store operational efficiencies.

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 remain in comparable store sales while stores identified for permanent closure have been removed.

Net revenues for the International segment declined 5% over Q2 FY23 to $1.8 billion in Q2 FY24, primarily driven by an approximate 5% unfavorable impact from foreign currency translation and a 6% decline in comparable store sales, driven by a 3% decline in both comparable transactions and average ticket. Also contributing were lower product and equipment sales to, and royalty revenues from, our licensees. This decline was partially offset by net new company-operated store growth of 12% over the past 12 months.

Operating income decreased to $233.8 million in Q2 FY24 compared to $314.7 million in Q2 FY23. Operating margin of 13.3% contracted from 17.0% in the prior year, primarily driven by promotional activities, incremental investments in store partner wages and benefits, as well as sales mix shift, partially offset by pricing in certain markets.

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment declined 13% over Q2 FY23 to $418.2 million in Q2 FY24, primarily due to a decline in revenue in the Global Coffee Alliance, following the sale of Seattle's Best Coffee brand in the prior year and SKU optimization.

Operating income decreased to $216.3 million in Q2 FY24 compared to $262.1 million in Q2 FY23. Operating margin of 51.7% contracted from 54.5% in the prior year, primarily due to lapping the gain on the sale of Seattle's Best Coffee brand, partially offset by growth in our North American Coffee Partnership joint venture income, sales mix shift, and lapping impairment charges against certain manufacturing assets.

Our forward-looking statements, and the risks and uncertainties related thereto, include, but are not limited to, those described under the “Risk Factors” and “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections of the company’s most recently filed periodic reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q and in other filings with the SEC, as well as:

  • our ability to preserve, grow, and leverage our brands, including the risk of negative responses by consumers (such as boycotts or negative publicity campaigns) or governmental actors (such as retaliatory legislative treatment) who object to certain actions taken or not taken by the Company, which responses could adversely affect our brand value;
  • the acceptance of the company’s products and changes in consumer preferences, consumption, or spending behavior and our ability to anticipate or react to them; shifts in demographic or health and wellness trends; or unfavorable consumer reaction to new products, platforms, reformulations, or other innovations;
  • our anticipated operating expenses, including our anticipated total capital expenditures;
  • the costs associated with, and the successful execution and effects of, our existing and any future business opportunities, expansions, initiatives, strategies, investments, and plans, including our Triple Shot Reinvention with Two Pumps Plan;
  • the impacts of partner investments and changes in the availability and cost of labor including any union organizing efforts and our responses to such efforts;
  • the ability of our business partners, suppliers and third-party providers to fulfill their responsibilities and commitments;
  • higher costs, lower quality, or unavailability of coffee, dairy, cocoa, energy, water, raw materials, or product ingredients;
  • the impact of significant increases in logistics costs;
  • a worsening in the terms and conditions upon which we engage with our manufacturers and source suppliers, whether resulting from broader local or global conditions, or dynamics specific to our relationships with such parties;
  • unfavorable global or regional economic conditions and related economic slowdowns or recessions, low consumer confidence, high unemployment, weak credit or capital markets, budget deficits, burdensome government debt, austerity measures, higher interest rates, higher taxes, political instability, higher inflation, or deflation;
  • inherent risks of operating a global business including geopolitical instability;
  • failure to attract or retain key executive or partner talent or successfully transition executives;

  • potential negative effects of a material breach, failure, or corruption of our information technology systems or those of our direct and indirect business partners, suppliers or third-party providers, or failure to comply with data protection laws;
  • our environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) efforts and any reaction related thereto such as the rise in opposition to ESG and inclusion and diversity efforts;
  • risks associated with acquisitions, dispositions, business partnerships, or investments – such as acquisition integration, termination difficulties or costs, or impairment in recorded value;
  • the impact of foreign currency translation, particularly a stronger U.S. dollar;
  • the impact of substantial competition from new entrants, consolidations by competitors, and other competitive activities, such as pricing actions (including price reductions, promotions, discounting, couponing, or free goods), marketing, category expansion, product introductions, or entry or expansion in our geographic markets;
  • the impact of changes in U.S. tax law and related guidance and regulations that may be implemented, including on tax rates;
  • the impact of health epidemics, pandemics, or other public health events on our business and financial results, and the risk of negative economic impacts and related regulatory measures or voluntary actions that may be put in place, including restrictions on business operations or social distancing requirements, and the duration and efficacy of such restrictions;
  • failure to comply with anti-corruption laws, trade sanctions and restrictions, or similar laws or regulations; and
  • the impact of significant legal disputes and proceedings, or government investigations.

In addition, many of the foregoing risks and uncertainties are, or could be, exacerbated by any worsening of the global business and economic environment. A forward-looking statement is neither a prediction nor a guarantee of future events or circumstances, and those future events or circumstances may not occur. You should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. We are under no obligation to update or alter any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Key Metrics

The company's financial results and long-term growth model will continue to be driven by new store openings, comparable store sales growth and operating margin management. We believe these key operating metrics are useful to investors because management uses these metrics to assess 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 (GAAP). When provided, our non-GAAP financial measures of non-GAAP general and administrative expenses (G&A), non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating income growth (loss), non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings 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, non-GAAP operating income growth (loss), non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP earnings per share are G&A, operating income, operating income growth (loss), operating margin, effective tax rate and diluted net earnings per share, respectively.

Non-GAAP Exclusion

Rationale

Restructuring and impairment costs

Management excludes restructuring and impairment costs for reasons discussed above. These expenses are anticipated to be completed within a finite period of time.

Transaction and integration-related costs

Management excludes transaction and integration costs for reasons discussed above. Additionally, we incur certain costs associated with certain divestiture activities. The majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time.

Gain on sale of assets

Management excludes the gain related to the sale of assets to Nestlé, primarily consisting of intellectual properties associated with the Seattle's Best Coffee brand, as these items do not reflect future gains or tax impacts for reasons discussed above.

The Company also presents constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying businesses performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present the constant currency information, current period results for entities reporting in currencies other than United States dollars are converted into United States dollars using the average monthly exchange rates from the comparative period rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective periods, excluding related hedging activities. We believe the presentation of results on a constant currency basis in addition to GAAP results helps users better understand our performance, because it excludes the effects of foreign currency volatility that are not indicative of our underlying operating results.

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