The Corporate and Unallocated column in the above tables includes, among other amounts, all amounts that we have deemed Special Items. See Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results.


Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Summary of Results, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows (amounts in millions, except per share amounts) (unaudited)

(a)   Amounts presented as of and for the quarter and year to date ended June 16, 2012 are preliminary.
(b) Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity income from investments in unconsolidated affiliates. The year to date ended June 16, 2012 also includes costs related to the acquisition of Little Sheep Group Limited ("Little Sheep") (see note (e) for further explanation).
(c) Beginning the first quarter of 2012, our India Division is being reported as a standalone reporting segment separate from YRI as a result of changes to our management reporting structure. While our consolidated results are not impacted, our historical segment information has been restated to be consistent with the current period presentation. This new segment also includes the franchise businesses in the neighboring countries of Bangladesh, Mauritius, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

As part of our plan to transform our U.S. business we took certain measures ("the U.S. business transformation measures") in 2012 and 2011 which includes the continuation of our U.S. refranchising, potentially reducing our Company ownership in the U.S. to 10% or slightly less, including a reduction of Taco Bell Company ownership to 16%. During the quarter and year to date ended June 16, 2012, we recorded gains of $9 million and $54 million, respectively, related to refranchising in the U.S., primarily at Taco Bell. We have traditionally not allocated refranchising (gains) losses for segment reporting purposes. Additionally, U.S. refranchising (gains) losses have been reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).

(e) On February 1, 2012 we acquired an additional 66% interest in Little Sheep for $540 million, net of cash acquired of $44 million, increasing our ownership to 93%. The acquisition was driven by our strategy to build leading brands across China in every significant category. Prior to our acquisition of this additional interest, our 27% interest in Little Sheep was accounted for under the equity method of accounting. As a result of the acquisition we obtained voting control of Little Sheep, and thus we began consolidating Little Sheep upon acquisition. As required by GAAP, we remeasured our previously held 27% ownership in Little Sheep, which had a recorded value of $107 million at the date of acquisition, at fair value and recognized a non-cash gain of $74 million. This gain, which resulted in no related income tax expense, was recorded in Other (income) expense on our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income during the quarter ended March 24, 2012, was not allocated for segment reporting purposes and is reflected as a Special Item for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).

Consolidated Little Sheep results are included in the China Division from the beginning of the second quarter of 2012. Little Sheep impacted China Division revenues by 4% and 2% for the quarter and year to date ended June 16, 2012, respectively. Other than the $74 million gain discussed above, Little Sheep did not have a significant impact on China Division's Operating Profit or Net Income - YUM! Brands, Inc. for the quarter and year to date ended June 16, 2012. China Division and Worldwide system sales include sales from Little Sheep's company-owned restaurants but exclude sales from Little Sheep's franchise restaurants. Our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at June 16, 2012 reflects the consolidation of this entity, including approximately $300 million of goodwill, $500 million of other intangible assets and a $45 million redeemable noncontrolling interest. Also, in the quarter ended March 24, 2012, we released from escrow $300 million of cash that was deemed restricted prior to our acquisition of Little Sheep.

(f) In 2011, we decided to sell our remaining company-owned Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants. Based on bids we received from prospective buyers, we recorded a non cash pre-tax impairment charge of $20 million to Refranchising (gain) loss to adjust the carrying amount of the asset group to its fair value in the quarter ended March 24, 2012. We had previously recorded a $74 million non cash pre-tax impairment charge to Refranchising (gain) loss to reduce the carrying amount of the asset group to its then estimated fair value upon our initial decision to sell the Pizza Hut dine-in business in the quarter ended September 3, 2011. These charges were not allocated for segment reporting purposes and were reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).
(g) During the fourth quarter of 2011 we sold the Long John Silver's and A&W All American Food Restaurants brands to key franchise leaders and strategic investors in separate transactions. During the quarter ended March 19, 2011, we recognized $69 million of pre-tax losses and other costs primarily in Closures and impairment (income) expenses as a result of our decision to sell these businesses. These charges were not allocated for segment reporting purposes and were reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).
