Yum shares pop as China sales grow
Shares in the company behind KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell rose nearly 4 per cent in extended trading, after the company reported a 6 per cent rise in first quarter same-store sales at its China division, eclipsing estimates for a 2.1 per cent gain. That compared to a 12 per cent drop in the prior year quarter.

KFC China saw a 12 per cent jump in same-store sales growth, which the company attributed to a Chinese New Year bucket promotion.

Comparable sales increased at all of the company’s divisions and were up 2 per cent worldwide.

That helped the Kentucky-based company report profits of $391m or 93 cents a share, up from $362m or 81 cents a share in the year ago quarter*. Sales were largely flat at $2.6bn. Analysts on Wall Street were looking for earnings of 83 cents, on sales of $2.7bn.

Adjusting for one-time items earnings of 95 cents a share, topped estimates for 83 cents.

Greg Creed, chief executive, said:

While it’s early in the year and there may be bumps in the road, we’re confident in raising core operating profit growth guidance to 12%, from 10% previously.

Failure to revive sales in Asia’s largest economy following a food safety scare prompted Yum to announce a plan to spin off its China business late last year. Yum has also reportedly been in talks with KKR and other private equity funds to sell a minority stake in the Chinese business — its largest division.

The company has previously said the split should allow each company to target a 15 per cent shareholder return per year.

Yum shares have advanced 13 per cent since the start of last year.

Note: The piece was amended to reflect diluted earnings per share of 81 cents.

周三,百胜(Yum)公布了一季度财报,中国区同店销售额上升6%,远超此前2.1%的预估增益,去年同期则下跌了12%。财报公布后,百胜股票在盘后交易中上涨近4%,该公司旗下品牌包括肯德基(KFC)、必胜客(Pizza Hut)和塔可钟(Taco Bell)。

中国肯德基同店销售猛增12%,百胜将此归因于春节全家桶推广活动。

百胜各部门可比销售额都有增长,全球销售额上涨2%。

受此带动,百胜第一季度净利报收3.91亿美元,每股收益0.93美元,去年同期利润为3.62亿美元,每股收益0.81美元,销售额基本持平在26亿美元。华尔街分析师此前预计百胜今年首季每股收益为0.83美元,营收预估为27亿美元。

经一次性项目调整后,每股收益达到0.95美元,超过预期的0.83美元。

百胜首席执行官格雷格?克里德(Greg Creed)表示:虽然现在还是年初,前路可能还有颠簸,但我们有信心将核心业务营利增长从之前的10%提高到12%。

由于中国区发生的一次食品安全恐慌,百胜没能重振这个亚洲最大经济体的销售,促使该公司在去年年底宣布计划分拆中国业务。据报道百胜还曾与KKR等私人股本集团洽谈出售中国业务的少数股权。中国业务是百胜旗下最大部门。

百胜此前曾表示拆分中国区业务应该可以让每家公司实现每年15%的股东回报率。

自去年年初以来,百胜股价已上涨13%。
