McDonald's: quarterly profit falls short of expectations

(CercleFinance.com) - McDonald's shares slid 2% in pre-market trading on Tuesday as the world's biggest burger chain's quarterly earnings fell short of expectations.


The Chicago-based company's second-quarter profit fell 68% to 484 million dollars, with EPS falling to 65 cents from 1.97 dollar a year ago.

By comparison, analysts were expecting EPS of 74 cents.

Consolidated revenues fell by 30% to 3.7 billion dollars, as global comparable sales dropped 23.9%, heavily impacted by temporary restaurant closures, particularly in the UK and France.

The company also pointed out "dramatic changes" in consumer behaviour as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

In its statement, McDonald's said comparable sales sequentially improved throughout the quarter as markets reopened restaurants and governments eased restrictions. As of 30 June, 96% of its restaurants around the world had reopened.
