Baron Funds Comments on YUM! Brands - May 23, 2016

Shares of YUM! Brands, Inc., (NYSE:YUM) a global operator and franchisor of the Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and KFC restaurant brands, were up in the first quarter as the date of its spin-out of its struggling Chinese business approaches. News that private equity funds are considering investing in YUM! China lent support to estimates around the value of that business. We believe the ex-China operation is a high-quality, capital-efficient franchising business with continued growth potential and the Chinese business offers some optionality for a turn-around.

Matthews Pacific Tiger Fund Comments on Yum Brands Inc - Feb 05, 2015

One of the newer additions is Yum! Brands (YUM), which is continuing to solidify its position as a premier-eating destination for Chinese consumers. The recent setbacks at Yum! Brands around food quality are an opportunity for the management team to establish better controls, and distinguish their offerings from the competition.
