Item 8.01 Other Events.

On December 2, 2013, Starbucks Corporation ("Starbucks" or the "Company") entered into an underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein, under which Starbucks agreed to issue and sell to the several underwriters (i) $400,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 0.875% Senior Notes due December 5, 2016 (the "2016 Notes") and (ii) $350,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.000% Senior Notes due December 5, 2018 (the "2018 Notes" and, together with the 2016 Notes, the "Notes"). The foregoing disclosure is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Underwriting Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

The Notes are being issued under the Indenture, dated as of August 23, 2007 (the "Base Indenture"), by and between the Company and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as trustee (the "Trustee"), as supplemented by the Third Supplemental Indenture, dated as of December 5, 2013 (the "Third Supplemental Indenture" and, together with the Base Indenture, the "Indenture"), by and between the Company and the Trustee.

Starbucks will pay interest on the 2016 Notes on each June 5 and December 5, beginning on June 5, 2014. The 2016 Notes will mature on December 5, 2016. At any time, Starbucks may redeem the 2016 Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of such series, plus a "make whole" premium as described in the Indenture and accrued and unpaid interest.

Starbucks will pay interest on the 2018 Notes on each June 5 and December 5, beginning on June 5, 2014. The 2018 Notes will mature on December 5, 2018. Before November 5, 2018 (one month prior to the maturity date of the 2018 Notes), Starbucks may, at any time, redeem the 2018 Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of such series, plus a "make whole" premium as described in the Indenture and accrued and unpaid interest. At any time on or after November 5, 2018, Starbucks may redeem the 2018 Notes at par, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

In addition, upon the occurrence of a change of control triggering event (which involves the occurrence of both a change of control and a below investment grade rating of the notes by Moody's and S&P), Starbucks will be required to make an offer to repurchase the Notes at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The Notes will be the Company's senior unsecured obligations and will rank equally with the Company's other unsecured debt from time to time outstanding. The Notes will be effectively subordinated to any existing or future indebtedness or other liabilities, including trade payables, of any of the Company's subsidiaries. The Notes are subject to customary covenants and events of default, as set forth in the Indenture.

The foregoing disclosure is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Base Indenture and the Third Supplemental Indenture. The Base Indenture was filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company's Registration Statement on Form S-3 (SEC Registration No. 333-190955) (the "Registration Statement") and is incorporated herein by reference. The Third Supplemental Indenture is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.2 and incorporated herein by reference.

In addition, in connection with the public offering of the Notes, Starbucks is filing certain items listed below as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K for the purpose of incorporating such items into the Registration Statement. Such items filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K are hereby incorporated into the Registration Statement by reference.
