Yum! Brands, Inc. Research Report

On July 10, 2013, Yum! Brands, Inc. (Yum! Brands) reported its financial
results for Q2 FY 2013 (period ended June 15, 2013). Total revenues decreased
8% YoY to $2.9 billion. Same store sales declined 20% YoY in China, but grew
1% YoY at Yum! Restaurants International (YRI) Division and 1% YoY in the US.
Excluding special items, EPS was $0.56 compared to EPS of $0.67 in Q2 FY 2012.
David C. Novak, Yum! Brands Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented,
"Second-quarter EPS declined 16%, which was generally in line with our
expectations. KFC sales and profits in China were significantly impacted by
intense media surrounding Avian flu, as well as the residual effect of the
December poultry supply incident. The good news is that China sales are
recovering as expected. The extensive media surrounding Avian flu in China has
subsided and same-store sales at KFC are clearly improving." He added, "Our
estimated mid-single-digit full-year EPS decline versus prior year remains
unchanged. We expect a strong bounce-back year in 2014 as we continue to
aggressively invest behind our core strategies and capitalize on the enormous
growth opportunities we see around the world." The Full Research Report on
