Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results (amounts in millions, except per share amounts) (unaudited)

 

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") throughout this document, the Company has provided non-GAAP measurements which present operating results in 2013 and 2012 on a basis before Special Items. Included in Special Items are the U.S. refranchising gain (loss), the gain on the acquisition of Little Sheep and losses associated with the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in business. These amounts are described in (c), (d) and (e) in the accompanying notes. Other Special Items Income (Expense) in 2012 includes the depreciation reductions from Pizza Hut UK and KFC U.S. restaurants impaired upon our decision or offer to refranchise that remained Company stores for some or all of the periods presented, gains from real estate sales related to our previously refranchised Mexico business and charges relating to U.S. General and Administrative ("G&A") productivity initiatives and realignment of resources.

 

The Company uses earnings before Special Items as a key performance measure of results of operations for the purpose of evaluating performance internally and Special Items are not included in any of our segment results. This non-GAAP measurement is not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Rather, the Company believes that the presentation of earnings before Special Items provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations, excluding items in the quarters and years to date ended June 15, 2013 and June 16, 2012 that the Company does not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations due to their size and/or nature.

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 15, 2013 are preliminary.
 
(b) Other (income) expense for the China Division primarily consists of equity income (loss) 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").
 
(c) During the quarter and year to date ended June 15, 2013, we recorded gains of $28 million and $45 million, respectively, related to refranchising in the U.S., primarily at Taco Bell. 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).
 
(d) 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).
 
(e) During the quarter ended December 29, 2012, we refranchised our remaining 331 Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants. During the year to date ended June 16, 2012, we recorded pre-tax losses of $23 million to Refranchising (gain) loss primarily to adjust the carrying amount of the asset group to its then estimated fair value. These losses were not allocated for segment reporting purposes and were reflected as Special Items for certain performance measures (see accompanying reconciliation to reported results).
 
For the quarter ended June 15, 2013, the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants decreased Company sales by 18% and increased Franchise and license fees and income and Operating Profit by 2% and 3%, respectively, for the YRI Division. For the year to date ended June 15, 2013, the refranchising of the Pizza Hut UK dine-in restaurants decreased Company sales by 19% and increased Franchise and license fees and income and Operating Profit by 2% and 3%, respectively, for the YRI Division.
 
(f) At the beginning of fiscal 2013 we eliminated the period lag that we previously used to facilitate the reporting of our India Division's results. Accordingly, the India Division's 2013 second quarter results include the months of March through May 2013, and the 2013 year to date results include the months of January through May 2013. Due to the immateriality of the India Division's results we did not restate the prior year operating results for the elimination of this period lag and therefore the 2012 second quarter results continue to include the months of February through April 2012 and the 2012 year to date results include the months of December 2011 through April 2012. However, we have presented India Division system sales growth, same-store sales growth and restaurant unit growth within this release by comparing March through May 2013 to March through May 2012 for the second quarter and January through May 2013 to January through May 2012 for the year to date to enhance comparability.
