This excerpt taken from the SBUX 10-K filed Dec 21, 2006.
Starbucks Corporation is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (Form 10-K/A) to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 1, 2006 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 14, 2006 (the Original Filing) solely to correct an administrative error in the content of Item 7, Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. The error appears in the first full paragraph on page 25 of the Original Filing. In the third sentence of that paragraph the 7% increase in comparable store sales growth in fiscal 2006 compared to fiscal 2005 is attributed to a 5% increase in the average value per transaction and a 2% increase in the number of customer transactions. The correct explanation is as follows: The increase in comparable store sales was due to a 5% increase in the number of customer transactions and a 2% increase in the average value per transaction.
This Amendment does not update any disclosures to reflect developments since the filing date of the Original Filing.
