Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-10-02.
Highlight of Business Operations:Consumer packaged goods includes both domestic and international sales of packaged coffee and tea to grocery and warehouse club stores. It also includes revenues from product sales to and licensing revenues from manufacturers that produce and market Starbucks and Seattles Best Coffee branded products through licensing agreements. Revenues from sales of packaged coffee and tea comprised 4% of total net revenues in fiscal 2011. In prior years through the first several months of fiscal 2011, we sold a selection of Starbucks and Seattles Best Coffee branded packaged coffees and Tazo® teas in grocery and warehouse club stores throughout the US and to grocery stores in Canada, the UK and other European countries through a distribution arrangement with Kraft Foods Global, Inc. Kraft managed the distribution, marketing, advertising and promotion of these products as a part of that arrangement. During fiscal 2011, we successfully transitioned these businesses, including the marketing, advertising, and promotion of these products, from our previous distribution arrangement with Kraft and began selling these products directly to the grocery and warehouse club stores. We also sell packaged coffee and tea directly to warehouse club stores in international markets.
Includes the revenue reclassification described in Note 1. For fiscal years 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007, we reclassified $465.7 million, $427.3 million, $392.6 million, and $366.3 million, respectively, from the previously named Licensing revenue to CPG, foodservice and other revenue.
Consolidated operating income was $1.7 billion for fiscal 2011 compared to $1.4 billion in fiscal 2010 and operating margin increased to 14.8% compared to 13.3% in fiscal 2010. The operating margin expansion was driven by increased sales leverage, partially offset by higher commodity costs. Comparable store sales growth at company-operated stores was 8% in fiscal 2011 compared to 7% in fiscal 2010.
EPS for fiscal 2011 was $1.62, compared to EPS of $1.24 reported in fiscal 2010, with the increase driven by the improved sales leverage and certain gains recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. We recognized a gain from a fair market value adjustment resulting from the acquisition of the remaining ownership interest in our joint venture in Switzerland and Austria as well as a gain on the sale of corporate real estate. These gains contributed approximately $0.10 to EPS in fiscal 2011.
Cash provided by operating activities was $1.6 billion for fiscal year 2011, compared to $1.7 billion for fiscal year 2010. The slight decrease was primarily attributable to an increase in inventories, resulting in part from higher coffee prices, partially offset by higher net earnings for the period and an increase in payables, primarily related to green coffee purchases.
