STARBUCKS CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)
Note 1:
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Financial Statement Preparation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2013, and for the quarter and two quarters ended March 31, 2013 and April 1, 2012, have been prepared by Starbucks Corporation under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In the opinion of management, the financial information for the quarter and two quarters ended March 31, 2013 and April 1, 2012 reflects all adjustments and accruals, which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods. In this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“10-Q”) Starbucks Corporation is referred to as “Starbucks,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our.”
The financial information as of September 30, 2012 is derived from our audited consolidated financial statements and notes for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 (“fiscal 2012”) included in Item 8 in the Fiscal 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K (the “10-K”). The information included in this 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the footnotes and management’s discussion and analysis of the financial statements in the 10-K. Effective at the beginning of the fiscal year ending September 29, 2013 ("fiscal 2013"), we decentralized certain leadership functions. General and administrative expenses and depreciation and amortization expenses associated with these functions, which were previously reported as unallocated corporate expenses within "Other," are now reported within the respective reportable operating segments to align with the regions which they support. On January 29, 2013, we filed a Current Report on Form 8-K to recast operating results for all periods covered in the 10-K to reflect this change. See further discussion and the impact of these changes in Note 11 of this 10-Q.
Beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, we removed unallocated corporate expenses from Other in our segment reporting. Other is now referred to as All Other Segments and includes Teavana, Seattle's Best Coffee, Evolution Fresh and Tazo retail, as well as our Digital Ventures business. Unallocated corporate expenses are now a reconciling item between our segment results and our consolidated results, which are unchanged. Our historical segment financial information has been revised to be consistent with the current period presentation.
The results of operations for the quarter and two quarters ended March 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that may be achieved for the entire fiscal 2013.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2013, the FASB issued guidance that adds additional disclosure requirements for items reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income. This guidance requires the disclosure of significant amounts reclassified from each component of accumulated other comprehensive income and the income statement line items affected by the reclassification. The guidance will become effective for us at the beginning of our first quarter of fiscal 2014. The adoption of this guidance will result in the disclosure of reclassifications from accumulated other comprehensive income by component in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.
In January 2013, the FASB issued guidance clarifying the scope of disclosure requirements for offsetting assets and liabilities. The amended guidance limits the scope of balance sheet offsetting disclosures to derivatives, repurchase agreements, and securities lending transactions to the extent that they are offset in the financial statements or subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement. The guidance will become effective for us at the beginning of our first quarter of fiscal 2014. The adoption of this new guidance will not have a material impact on our financial statements.
In July 2012, the FASB issued guidance that revises the requirements around how entities test indefinite-lived intangible assets, other than goodwill, for impairment. The guidance allows companies to perform a qualitative assessment before calculating the fair value of the indefinite-lived intangible asset. If entities determine, on the basis of qualitative factors, that the fair value of the indefinite-lived intangible asset is more likely than not greater than the carrying amount, a quantitative calculation would not be needed. The guidance became effective for us at the beginning of our first quarter of fiscal 2013. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our financial statements.
In June 2011, the FASB issued guidance that revises the manner in which entities present comprehensive income in their financial statements. The guidance requires entities to report the components of comprehensive income in either a single, continuous statement or two separate but consecutive statements. The guidance became effective for us at the beginning of our first quarter of fiscal 2013. In adopting this guidance, we added the consolidated statements of comprehensive income following our consolidated statements of earnings.

Note 2:
Acquisition
On December 31, 2012, we acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Teavana Holdings, Inc. (“Teavana”), a specialty retailer of premium loose-leaf teas, authentic artisanal teawares and other tea-related merchandise, to elevate our tea offerings as well as expand our domestic and global tea footprint. We acquired Teavana for $615.8 million in cash. Of the total cash paid, $13.3 million was excluded from the purchase price allocation below as it represents contingent consideration receivable. At closing, we also paid $35.2 million for long term debt outstanding on Teavana's balance sheet, which was recognized separately from the business combination. The following table summarizes the allocation of the purchase price to the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the closing date (in millions):

The assets acquired and liabilities assumed are reported within All Other Segments. Other current and noncurrent assets acquired primarily include prepaid expenses, trade receivables, and deferred tax assets. In addition, we assumed various current liabilities primarily consisting of accounts payable, accrued payroll related liabilities and other accrued operating expenses. The intangible assets acquired as part of the transaction include the Teavana trade name, tea blends and non-compete agreements. The Teavana trade name was valued at $105.5 million and determined to have an indefinite life, based on our expectation that the brand will be used indefinitely and has no contractual limitations. The intangible asset related to the tea blends was valued at $13.0 million and will be amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years, and the intangible asset related to the non-compete agreements was valued at $2.3 million and will be amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of 3 years. The $466.4 million of goodwill represents the intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, primarily including Teavana's established global store presence in high traffic mall locations and other high-sales-volume retail venues, Teavana's global customer base, and Teavana's "Heaven of tea" retail experience in which store employees engage and educate customers about the ritual and enjoyment of tea. The goodwill was allocated to All Other Segments and is not deductible for income tax purposes.

Note 3:
Derivative Financial Instruments
Foreign Currency
We enter into forward and swap contracts to hedge portions of cash flows of anticipated revenue streams and inventory purchases in currencies other than the entity's functional currency. Net derivative gains from these cash flow hedges of $1.0 million and net derivative losses of $2.9 million, net of taxes, were included in accumulated other comprehensive income as of March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Of the net derivative gains accumulated as of March 31, 2013, $1.0 million pertains to derivative instruments that will be dedesignated as cash flow hedges within 12 months and will also continue to experience fair value changes before affecting earnings. Outstanding contracts will expire within 11 months.
We also enter into net investment derivative instruments to hedge our equity method investment in Starbucks Coffee Japan, Ltd., to minimize foreign currency exposure. Net derivative losses from net investment hedges of $16.9 million and $33.6 million, net of taxes, were included in accumulated other comprehensive income as of March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Outstanding contracts will expire within 35 months.

8


In addition to the hedging instruments above, to mitigate the translation risk of certain balance sheet items, we enter into foreign currency swap contracts that are not designated as hedging instruments. These contracts are recorded at fair value, with the changes in fair value recognized in net interest income and other on the consolidated statements of earnings. Gains and losses from these instruments are largely offset by the financial impact of translating foreign currency denominated payables and receivables, which is also recognized in net interest income and other.
Coffee
Depending on market conditions, we also enter into futures contracts to hedge a portion of anticipated cash flows under our price-to-be-fixed green coffee contracts, which are described further in Note 5. Net derivative losses of $42.6 million and $32.9 million, net of taxes, were included in accumulated other comprehensive income as of March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively, related to coffee hedges. Of the net derivative losses accumulated as of March 31, 2013, $41.9 million pertains to derivative instruments that will be dedesignated as cash flow hedges within 12 months and will also continue to experience fair value changes before affecting earnings. Outstanding contracts will expire within 12 months.
Dairy
To mitigate the price uncertainty of a portion of our future purchases of dairy products, we enter into futures contracts that are not designated as hedging instruments. These contracts are recorded at fair value, with the changes in fair value recognized in net interest income and other. Gains and losses from these instruments are largely offset by price fluctuations on our dairy purchases, which are included in cost of sales.
Diesel Fuel
To mitigate the price uncertainty of a portion of our future purchases of diesel fuel, we enter into swap contracts that are not designated as hedging instruments. These contracts are recorded at fair value, with the changes in fair value recognized in net interest income and other. Gains and losses from these instruments are largely offset by the financial impact of diesel fuel fluctuations on our shipping costs, which are included in operating expenses.

As of March 31, 2013, we had committed to purchasing green coffee totaling $352 million under fixed-price contracts and an estimated $460 million under price-to-be-fixed contracts. As of March 31, 2013, approximately $74 million of our price-to-be-fixed contracts were effectively fixed through the use of futures contracts. Price-to-be-fixed contracts are purchase commitments whereby the quality, quantity, delivery period, and other negotiated terms are agreed upon, but the date, and therefore the price, at which the base “C” coffee commodity price component will be fixed has not yet been established. For these types of contracts, either Starbucks or the seller has the option to “fix” the base “C” coffee commodity price prior to the delivery date. Until prices are fixed, we estimate the total cost of these purchase commitments. We believe, based on relationships established with our suppliers in the past, the risk of non-delivery on these purchase commitments is remote.

Cost Method Investments
In March 2013, we sold our 18% interest in Cafe Sirena S. de R.L. de CV (a Mexican limited liability company), to our controlling joint venture partner, SC de Mexico, S.A. de CV, owned by Alsea, S.A.B. de C.V. This transaction resulted in a gain of $35.2 million which was included in net interest income and other in the consolidated statements of earnings for the quarter and two quarters ended March 31, 2013. Cash proceeds from the sale of $50.3 million were received in April 2013.

Employee Stock Plans
As of March 31, 2013, there were 17.1 million shares of common stock available for issuance pursuant to future equity-based compensation awards and 7.9 million shares available for issuance under our employee stock purchase plans.
Pursuant to the 1997 Deferred Stock Plan, in September 1997 our chairman, president and ceo elected to defer receipt of approximately 3.4 million shares of common stock (as adjusted for stock splits since 1997). In November 2006, he re-deferred receipt of the shares until December 21, 2012 (or earlier if his employment with Starbucks terminated before such date). On December 21, 2012, the deferral period ended and pursuant to the terms of the 1997 Deferred Stock Plan, we issued approximately 2.2 million shares of common stock to him and withheld approximately 1.2 million shares to satisfy tax withholdings.

Potential dilutive shares consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options (both vested and non-vested) and unvested RSUs, calculated using the treasury stock method. The calculation of dilutive shares outstanding excludes out-of-the-money stock options (i.e., such options’ exercise prices were greater than the average market price of our common shares for the period) because their inclusion would have been antidilutive. Out-of-the-money stock options totaled less than 0.1 million as of March 31, 2013 and April 1, 2012.
Note 10:
Commitments and Contingencies
Legal Proceedings
In the first quarter of fiscal 2011, Starbucks notified Kraft Foods Global, Inc. (now known as Kraft Foods Group, Inc.) (“Kraft”) that we were discontinuing our distribution arrangement with Kraft on March 1, 2011 due to material breaches by Kraft of its obligations under the Supply and License Agreement between the Company and Kraft, dated March 29, 2004 (the “Agreement”), which defined the main distribution arrangement between the parties. Through our arrangement with Kraft, Starbucks sold a selection of Starbucks and Seattle's Best Coffee branded packaged coffees in grocery and warehouse club stores throughout the US, and to grocery stores in Canada, the UK and other European countries. Kraft managed the distribution, marketing, advertising and promotion of these products.
Kraft denies it has materially breached the Agreement. On November 29, 2010, Starbucks received a notice of arbitration from Kraft putting the commercial dispute between the parties into binding arbitration pursuant to the terms of the Agreement. In addition to denying it materially breached the Agreement, Kraft further alleges that if Starbucks wished to terminate the Agreement it must compensate Kraft as provided in the Agreement in an amount equal to the fair value of the Agreement, with an additional premium of up to 35% under certain circumstances.
On December 6, 2010, Kraft commenced a federal court action against Starbucks, entitled Kraft Foods Global, Inc. v. Starbucks Corporation, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “District Court”) seeking injunctive relief to prevent Starbucks from terminating the distribution arrangement until the parties' dispute is resolved through the arbitration proceeding. On January 28, 2011, the District Court denied Kraft's request for injunctive relief. Kraft appealed the District Court's decision to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. On February 25, 2011, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court's decision. As a result, Starbucks has been in full control of our packaged coffee business since March 1, 2011.
While Starbucks believes we have valid claims of material breach by Kraft under the Agreement that allowed us to terminate the Agreement and certain other relationships with Kraft without compensation to Kraft, there exists the possibility of material adverse outcomes to Starbucks in the arbitration or to resolve the matter. Although Kraft disclosed to the press and in federal court filings a $750 million offer Starbucks made to Kraft in August 2010 to avoid litigation and ensure a smooth transition of the business, the figure is not a proper basis upon which to estimate a possible outcome of the arbitration but was based upon facts and circumstances at the time. Kraft rejected the offer immediately and did not provide a counter-offer, effectively ending the discussions between the parties with regard to any payment. Moreover, the offer was made prior to our investigation of Kraft's breaches and without consideration of Kraft's continuing failure to comply with material terms of the agreements.
On April 2, 2012, Starbucks and Kraft exchanged expert reports regarding alleged damages on their affirmative claims. Starbucks claimed damages of up to $62.9 million from the loss of sales resulting from Kraft's failure to use commercially reasonable efforts to market Starbucks® coffee, plus attorney fees. Kraft's expert opined that the fair market value of the Agreement was $1.9 billion. After applying a 35% premium and 9% interest, Kraft claimed damages

16


of up to $2.9 billion, plus attorney fees.  The arbitration hearing commenced on July 11, 2012 and was completed on August 3. Starbucks presented evidence of material breaches on Kraft's part and sought nominal damages from Kraft for those breaches. Kraft presented evidence denying it had breached the parties' Agreement and sought damages of $2.9 billion plus attorney fees. We were expecting a decision from the Arbitrator in the first half of fiscal 2013 but now expect a decision in the second half of fiscal 2013.
At this time, Starbucks believes an unfavorable outcome with respect to the arbitration is not probable, but as noted above is reasonably possible. As also noted above, Starbucks believes we have valid claims of material breach by Kraft under the Agreement that allowed us to terminate the Agreement without compensation to Kraft. In addition, Starbucks believes Kraft's damage estimates are highly inflated and based upon faulty analysis. As a result, we cannot reasonably estimate the possible loss. Accordingly, no loss contingency has been recorded for this matter.
Starbucks is party to various other legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business, including certain employment litigation cases that have been certified as class or collective actions, but, except as noted above, is not currently a party to any legal proceeding that management believes could have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Note 11:
Segment Reporting
Segment information is prepared on the same basis that our ceo, who is our chief operating decision maker, manages the segments, evaluates financial results, and makes key operating decisions. Effective at the beginning of fiscal 2013, we decentralized certain leadership functions in the areas of retail marketing and category management, global store development and partner resources, to support and align with the respective operating segment presidents. In conjunction with these moves, certain general and administrative and depreciation and amortization expenses associated with these functions, which were previously reported as unallocated corporate expenses within "Other," are now reported within the respective reportable operating segments to align with the regions which they support.
Concurrent with the change in reportable operating segments and realignment of certain operating expenses noted above, we revised our prior period financial information to reflect comparable financial information for the new segment structure and reporting changes. Historical financial information presented herein reflects these changes. There was no impact on consolidated net revenues, total operating expenses, operating income, or net earnings as a result of these changes.
Beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, we removed unallocated corporate expenses from Other. Other is now referred to as All Other Segments and includes Teavana, Seattle's Best Coffee, Evolution Fresh and Tazo retail, as well as our Digital Ventures business. Unallocated corporate operating expenses, which pertain primarily to corporate administrative functions that support the operating segments but are not specifically attributable to or managed by any segment, are now presented as a reconciling item between total segment operating results and consolidated financial results. While our consolidated results are not impacted, our historical segment financial information has been revised to be consistent with the current period presentation.

General
Our fiscal year ends on the Sunday closest to September 30. All references to store counts, including data for new store openings, are reported net of store closures, unless otherwise noted.
Overview
Starbucks second quarter results demonstrate our continued focus on execution in our existing business portfolio while investing in future growth opportunities. Total net revenues increased 11% to $3.6 billion, driven by global comparable store sales growth of 6%. Consolidated operating income increased 26% and operating margin expanded 180 basis points to 15.3%. Earnings per share of $0.51, which includes $0.03 per share from the gain on the sale of our equity interest in our Mexico joint venture operations, represents growth of 28% over the prior year.
The Americas segment continued its strong performance in the second quarter with a 10% increase in revenues over the prior year, primarily driven by comparable store sales growth of 6%, comprised of a 5% increase in the number of transactions and a 2% increase in average ticket. Featured beverages and growth in afternoon food offerings contributed to the increase in comparable store sales. Operating margin expanded 220 basis points to 21.1%, driven by sales leverage due in part to a continued focus on store productivity, with lower coffee prices also contributing. Looking forward, we expect to continue to drive sales growth and profitability through new stores and the expansion of our pipeline of product offerings, including the roll out of La BoulangeTM products in our retail stores, to increase revenues throughout all dayparts.
Our work to turn around the EMEA segment continues and we are making progress despite the economic uncertainty in the region. Revenues for the region were flat compared to the prior year and reflect the shift in our ownership structure, as we continue our focus on closing underperforming company-operated stores and growing our licensed store base in profitable locations. A continued focus on cost management and the shift in our store portfolio to more licensed stores contributed to an increase in operating margin of 450 basis points over the prior year. We expect the investments we are making in the region today will result in improved operating performance as we progress on our plan towards mid-teens operating margin in the future.
Our CAP segment results reflect a combination of rapid new store growth and solid performance from our existing store base. New store growth, paired with an 8% increase in comparable store sales, drove total net revenue growth of 22% over the prior year. Operating income was flat compared to the same quarter in the prior year, while operating margin contracted this quarter. The margin contraction was primarily a result of our continued investment spending to support growth in China and a shift in the composition of our store portfolio from licensed to company-operated stores. We expect this segment to continue to grow rapidly and become a more meaningful contributor to overall company profitability, with growth coming from a mix of net new store openings and comparable store sales growth.
Channel Development segment revenues grew 7% for the quarter, driven by sales of Starbucks- and Tazo-branded K-Cup® portion packs. Lower commodity costs, primarily coffee, were the primary contributor to the increase in operating margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. We expect our investments in continued innovation and new product offerings in fiscal 2013 will drive further growth and profitability within this segment over time.

Our comparable store sales represent the growth in revenue from Starbucks company-operated stores open 13 months or longer. Comparable store sales exclude the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.
Fiscal 2013 — Financial Outlook for the Year
For fiscal year 2013, we expect revenue growth driven by mid single-digit increased comparable store sales, new store openings and continued growth in the Channel Development business. Licensed stores will comprise between one-half and two-thirds of new store openings.
We expect continued robust consolidated operating margin and EPS improvement compared to fiscal 2012, reflecting the strength of our global business and the pipeline of profitable growth initiatives.
We expect increased capital expenditures in fiscal 2013 compared to fiscal 2012, reflecting new store growth, a continued focus on store renovations and additional investments in manufacturing capacity.

Total net revenues for the second quarter and the first two quarters of fiscal 2013 increased $360 million and $724 million, respectively, primarily driven by increased revenues from company-operated stores (contributing $287 million and $544 million, respectively). An increase in comparable store sales was the primary driver of the increase in company-operated store revenues for both periods (approximately 6%, or $145 million, for the second quarter and approximately 6%, or $308 million, for the first two quarters). Also contributing for both periods were incremental revenues from 412 net new company-operated store openings over the past 12 months (approximately $82 million for the second quarter and $165 million for the first two quarters).

Licensed store revenue growth also contributed to the increase in total net revenues for the second quarter and the first two quarters of fiscal 2013 (approximately $32 million and $75 million, respectively). These increases were driven by increased product sales to and royalty revenues from our licensees, resulting from improved comparable store sales and the opening of 679 net new licensed stores over the last 12 months.
CPG, foodservice and other revenues increased $42 million and $104 million for the second quarter and the first two quarters of fiscal 2013, respectively. These increases were primarily due to increased sales of single serve products (approximately $25 million and $61 million, respectively).

Cost of sales including occupancy costs as a percentage of total net revenues decreased 120 basis points and 100 basis points for the second quarter and the first two quarters of fiscal 2013, respectively, primarily driven by lower coffee costs (approximately 50 basis points for both periods).
Store operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues decreased 70 basis points for the second quarter and 50 basis points for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013. As a percentage of company-operated store revenues, store operating expenses decreased 90 basis points for the second quarter and 50 basis points for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013, primarily driven by sales leverage (approximately 90 basis points for the second quarter and 100 basis points for the first two quarters).

Other operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues decreased 10 basis points for the second quarter and increased 10 basis points for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013. Excluding the impact of company-operated store revenues, other operating expenses decreased 60 basis points for the second quarter and increased 30 basis points for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013. The second quarter decrease was primarily driven by sales leverage from licensed store revenue growth (approximately 80 basis points). The increase for the first two quarters was primarily due to increased marketing related to the launch of the Verismo® system by Starbucks in Channel Development (approximately 90 basis points), partially offset by sales leverage.

General and administrative expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were flat for the second quarter and increased 30 basis points for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013. The increase for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013 was driven by the company's October Global Leadership Conference (approximately 40 basis points).
Income from equity investees was flat for the second quarter and increased $10 million for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013, primarily due to increased income from our joint venture operations in Japan and China, as well as improved performance from our North American Coffee Partnership joint venture which produces, bottles and distributes our ready to drink beverages. The improved performance from these joint ventures was partially offset by the absence this year of $6.7 million of non-routine income included in income from equity investees in the second quarter of the prior year.
The combination of these changes resulted in an increase in operating margin of 180 basis points for the second quarter and 110 basis points for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013.

For the second quarter and the first two quarters of fiscal 2013, net interest income and other increased $16 million and decreased $11 million, respectively. The increase for the second quarter was primarily due to a gain on the sale of our equity in the joint venture that operates Starbucks® stores in Mexico (approximately $35 million). Also contributing to the increase for the second quarter was net favorable foreign exchange fluctuations (approximately $4 million). These increases were partially offset by the absence of additional income recognized in the prior year period associated with unredeemed gifts cards due to a court ruling related to state unclaimed property laws (approximately $29 million).
The decrease for the first two quarters was primarily due to the absence of additional income recognized in the prior year period associated with unredeemed gifts cards due to a court ruling related to state unclaimed property laws (approximately $29 million) and mark-to-market adjustments from derivatives used to manage our risk of commodity price fluctuations (approximately $13 million). These decreases were partially offset by a gain on the sale of our equity in the joint venture that operates Starbucks® stores in Mexico (approximately $35 million).

The effective tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was 33.6% compared to 32.1% for the same quarter in fiscal 2012. The increase in the rate for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was primarily due to an increase in taxable income in the US relative to foreign jurisdictions with lower tax rates. The effective tax rate for the two quarters ended March 31, 2013 was 32.0% compared to 32.6% for the same period in fiscal 2012. The decrease in the rate for the first two quarters of fiscal 2013 was primarily due to the recognition of a net tax benefit in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 primarily from state income tax expense adjustments for returns filed in prior years.
