Consolidated net revenues were $5.0 billion in Q2 FY16, an increase of 9% over Q2 FY15. The increase was primarily driven by a 6% increase in global comparable store sales and the opening of 1,833 net new stores over the past 12 months.

Consolidated operating income grew 11% to $864.2 million in Q2 FY16, up from $777.5 million in Q2 FY15. Consolidated operating margin expanded 30 basis points to 17.3%. The increase was primarily due to sales leverage and was partially offset by investments in our partners (employees) and digital platforms.

Net New Stores(1) 132 (2 ) 134

Operating Margin 23.5 % 22.7 % 80 bps

(1) Net new stores include the closure of 132 Target Canada licensed stores in the second quarter of fiscal 2015.

Net revenues for the Americas segment were $3.5 billion in Q2 FY16, an increase of 10% over Q2 FY15. The increase was driven by a 7% increase in comparable store sales and incremental revenues from 707 net new store openings over the past 12 months.

Operating income of $812.0 million in Q2 FY16 grew 14% versus $709.6 million in Q2 FY15. Operating margin of 23.5% expanded 80 basis points due to sales leverage and was partially offset by investments in our partners (employees) and digital platforms.

Q2 China/Asia Pacific Segment Results

Quarter Ended

Net New Stores 175 176 (1 )
Revenues $ 677.9 $ 595.2 14 %
Operating Income $ 129.3 $ 112.4 15 %
Operating Margin 19.1 % 18.9 % 20 bps

Net revenues for the China/Asia Pacific segment grew 14% over Q2 FY15 to $677.9 million in Q2 FY16. The increase was primarily driven by incremental revenues from 884 net new store openings over the past 12 months. A 3% increase in comparable store sales also contributed.

Operating income grew 15% over Q2 FY15 to $129.3 million in Q2 FY16. Operating margin expanded 20 basis points to 19.1% primarily due to sales leverage and higher income from our joint venture operations. The expansion was partially offset by the impact of foreign currency and increased store operating expenses related to higher compensation and benefits.

Q2 EMEA Segment Results

Quarter Ended
($ in millions) Mar 27, 2016 Mar 29, 2015 Change
Net New Stores 47 35 12
Revenues $ 268.3 $ 280.3 (4 )%
Operating Income $ 27.6 $ 29.2 (5 )%
Operating Margin 10.3 % 10.4 % (10) bps

Net revenues for the EMEA segment were $268.3 million in Q2 FY16, a 4% decrease versus Q2 FY15. The decrease was primarily due to the shift in the portfolio towards more licensed stores and unfavorable foreign currency translation. Partially offsetting the decrease were incremental revenues from the opening of 273 net new licensed stores over the past 12 months.

Operating income decreased 5% to $27.6 million in Q2 FY16, down from $29.2 million in Q2 FY15. Operating margin declined 10 basis points to 10.3%, primarily driven by gains on the sale of certain store assets in the prior year.

Revenues $ 461.2 $ 428.0 8 %

Operating Margin 39.5 % 36.5 % 300 bps

Net revenues for the Channel Development segment grew 8% over Q2 FY15 to $461.2 million in Q2 FY16, primarily driven by increased sales of premium single-serve products. Also contributing to the increase were higher foodservice sales.

Operating income of $182.0 million in Q2 FY16 increased 17% compared to Q2 FY15. Operating margin increased 300 basis points to 39.5%, primarily driven by leverage on cost of sales and lower coffee costs. Higher income from the North American Coffee Partnership also contributed to the increase.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, the company provides consolidated non-GAAP operating income, consolidated non-GAAP operating margin and consolidated non-GAAP earnings per share (“non-GAAP EPS”) for Q2 fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015; China/Asia Pacific (“CAP”) segment non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin for Q2 fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015; and consolidated non-GAAP EPS for Q3 and full year fiscal 2015, as well as projected consolidated non-GAAP EPS for Q3 and full year fiscal 2016. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or alternatives for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, and non-GAAP EPS are operating income, operating margin, and diluted net earnings per share, respectively. 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.

The consolidated Q2 fiscal 2016 as well as the consolidated Q2 and Q3 fiscal 2015 non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items, specifically amortization expense from acquired intangible assets and transaction and integration costs. The Q2 fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015 CAP segment non-GAAP financial measures exclude the amortization expense from acquired intangible assets related to the acquisition of Starbucks Japan. The Q2 fiscal 2016 CAP segment non-GAAP financial measures also exclude integration costs, including incremental information technology and compensation-related costs associated with the acquisition. The consolidated full year fiscal 2015 non-GAAP EPS financial measures exclude the Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items as well as a gain resulting from a fair value adjustment of Starbucks preexisting 39.5% ownership interest in Starbucks Japan prior to the acquisition. The consolidated full year fiscal 2015 non-GAAP EPS financial measure also excludes losses and costs related to the redemption of the company’s $550 million of 6.250% 2017 Senior Notes and an incremental tax benefit related to a U.S. manufacturing deduction. Losses and costs related to the redemption are included as debt extinguishment-related items. Management excludes the acquisition-related transaction costs described above because they believe these items do not reflect expected future 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. In addition, management believes it is useful to exclude the integration costs and the amortization of the acquired intangible assets when evaluating performance because they are not representative of our core business operations. Although these items will affect earnings per share beyond the current fiscal year, the majority of these costs will be recognized over a finite period of time. More specifically, integration costs are expected to be concentrated in the first several years post-acquisition. Additionally, the amounts of the acquired intangible assets are specific to the transaction and the related amortization was fixed at the time of acquisition and generally cannot subsequently be changed or influenced by management in a future period. Management excludes the fair value gain, debt extinguishment-related items and the incremental tax benefit because they believe these items do not reflect future gains, losses, costs or tax benefits and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company’s fiscal 2015 operating performance or comparisons of the company’s fiscal 2015 operating performance to the company’s past or future operating performance.

The projected consolidated non-GAAP EPS for Q3 and full year fiscal 2016 financial measures exclude certain Starbucks Japan acquisition-related items comprised of projected amortization expense from acquired intangible assets and transaction and integration costs. Management is excluding these items from our projected non-GAAP measures for the same reasons described above.

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.
