OAK BROOK, Ill. -- McDonald's Corp. said yesterday that its slumping U.S. business should post improved results "as the year progresses" in 1997 while international operations should have an "excellent year."The company also said in its annual report that same-store sales in the United States fell 6.4 percent last year to an average of $1.43 million for stores open at least 13 months, from $1.54 million in 1996. That's a steeper decline than analysts had estimated.McDonald's said it will open fewer U.S. restaurants this year than last year, and that more than 70 percent of its 2,400 to 2,800 new restaurants planned for the year will open outside the United States.
