Starbucks on Tuesday said that its fiscal second-quarter global same-store sales fell 10% as the coronavirus hit sales in its two largest markets, the United States and China.
Shares of the company fell 1% in extended trading.
Here’s what the company reported:
- Earnings per share: 32 cents, adjusted
- Revenue: $6 billion
Excluding items, Starbucks earned 32 cents per share, down nearly half from the prior year.
Net sales dropped 5% to $6 billion.
Wall Street anticipated earnings per share of 34 cents on revenue of $5.89 billion, based on a survey of analysts by Refinitiv.
Global same-store sales declined 10%, driven by 13% transactions falling. U.S. same-store sales fell 3% during the quarter, while Chinese same-store sales plunged 50% in the same period. Sales in China have improved after the company started reopening cafes in late February and consumers adapt to a new normal.
