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."
