Office Depot, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

August 5, 2014

Raises 2014 Outlook for Adjusted Operating Income(1)

Raises Estimate of Annual Run-Rate Merger Synergies to More Than $700 Million, Including Optimization of North America Retail Store Portfolio

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of office products, services, and solutions formed by the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax in November 2013, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2014.

“During the second quarter, our team executed exceptionally well, which enabled us to deliver merger synergies more quickly than anticipated,” said Roland Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Office Depot, Inc. “We are very pleased with the integration of legacy Office Depot and OfficeMax as we create a culture focused on achieving our critical priorities in the near and long term. As planned, we have completed our analysis of the North America retail store optimization strategy and have continued to make progress on the development of our unique selling proposition. Based on accelerated synergies and improving execution, we have updated our full year 2014 outlook for adjusted operating income to be not less than $200 million, an increase from our prior outlook of not less than $160 million.”

“After completing our store optimization analysis, we continue to expect to close at least 400 locations in the U.S. by the end of 2016, with approximately 165 stores closing in 2014,” added Smith. “Further, we have increased the expected annual run-rate synergies from this initiative to at least $100 million by the end of 2016, from our prior outlook of at least $75 million.”

Consolidated Results

Office Depot, Inc. results for the second quarter and year-to-date June 2014 include the financial results from OfficeMax, whereas prior year reported results include only the financial results of Office Depot.

Total reported sales for the second quarter of 2014 were $3.8 billion compared to $2.4 billion in the second quarter of 2013, reflecting the inclusion of OfficeMax sales in 2014, and were 2% lower than combined pro forma sales of $3.9 billion in the second quarter of the prior year.

(1) Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as operating income less charges or credits not indicative of our core operations, which may include but not be limited to merger integration expenses, restructuring charges, asset impairments, and significant legal accruals. Additionally, adjusted operating income excludes results from the Grupo OfficeMax consolidated joint venture, as the Office Depot interest in the joint venture is pending sale. Reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures can be found in this release, as well as on our Investor Relations website at investor.officedepot.com. Additional information is provided in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 28, 2014.

In the second quarter of 2014, Office Depot reported an operating loss of $185 million and a net loss available to common stockholders of $190 million, or $0.36 per share. In the second quarter of 2013, the company reported an operating loss of $45 million and a net loss available to common stockholders of $64 million, or $0.23 per share.

Adjusted (non-GAAP) operating income for the second quarter of 2014 was $18 million compared to a combined pro forma adjusted operating loss of $6 million in the second quarter of 2013. The adjusted (non-GAAP) net loss attributable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2014 was $12 million, or $0.02 cents per share, compared to a combined pro forma adjusted net loss of $18 million, or $0.03 cents per share, in the second quarter of 2013.

  • Adjusted operating income for the second quarter of 2014 excludes special charges and credits totaling $205 million, as well as $2 million in operating income from the Grupo OfficeMax joint venture (JV) which is pending sale. The special items were comprised of $92 million in merger-related expenses, an $80 million legal accrual, $22 million in non-cash store and website impairment charges, and $11 million in International restructuring charges.
  • The adjusted net loss for the second quarter of 2014 includes the after-tax effect of the items noted above as well as a credit of $9 million in interest expense related to a tax settlement and $3 million of other charges.

    Operating results for the Grupo OfficeMax JV have been excluded from the 2014 non-GAAP results as well as the 2013 pro forma results for comparability. Updated 2013 pro forma statements of operations, which combine Office Depot and OfficeMax operations and include purchase accounting and other adjustments, are available on the Investor Center page of the company’s website at investor.officedepot.com.

    Divisional Results

    North American Retail Division

    Retail Division reported sales in the second quarter of 2014 were $1.5 billion compared to $0.9 billion in the second quarter of 2013, reflecting the inclusion of OfficeMax sales in the second quarter of 2014. On a combined pro forma basis, second quarter 2014 sales declined 5%, and same-store sales declined 3% versus last year. Same-store sales decreased primarily due to lower transaction counts partially offset by higher average order values.

    Retail Division operating loss was $6 million, or 0.4% of sales, in the second quarter of 2014 compared to a reported division operating loss of $20 million, or 2.1% of sales, in the second quarter of 2013 and a combined pro forma operating loss of $22 million, or 1.4% of sales, in the second quarter of 2013. The second quarter 2014 results compared to combined pro forma second quarter 2013 results reflected a decrease in selling, general, and administrative expenses including payroll, advertising, and other store expenses as well as improvement in the gross margin rate, partially offset by the negative flow-through impact of lower sales.

    Office Depot ended the second quarter of 2014 with a total of 1,870 retail stores in the North American Retail Division, comprised of 1,067 Office Depot and 803 OfficeMax branded locations. During the second quarter of 2014, the company closed sixteen and opened one Office Depot branded stores, and closed sixteen and opened one OfficeMax branded stores.

    North American Business Solutions Division

    Business Solutions Division reported sales were $1.5 billion in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $0.8 billion in the prior year period, reflecting the inclusion of OfficeMax sales in the second quarter of 2014. On a combined pro forma basis, sales declined 1% in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the prior year quarter, due to lower sales in Canada.

The increase in second quarter 2014 division operating income compared to combined pro forma second quarter 2013 was driven by lower selling, general, and administrative expenses including sales force and advertising, partially offset by a slight decrease in the gross margin rate.

    International Division

    International Division reported sales were $0.8 billion in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $0.7 billion in the prior year quarter, reflecting the inclusion of OfficeMax sales in the second quarter of 2014. On a combined pro forma basis, sales declined 5% in constant currency.

    International Division operating loss was $2 million, or 0.2% of sales, in the second quarter of 2014 compared to a reported division operating loss of $5 million, or 0.7% of sales, in the second quarter of 2013 and combined pro forma operating loss of $6 million, or 0.7% of sales, in the second quarter of 2013. The reduction in the second quarter 2014 division operating loss compared to combined pro forma second quarter 2013 was driven by an improvement in the gross margin rate as well as lower selling, general, and administrative expenses including advertising and payroll, partially offset by the negative flow-through impact of lower sales.

    Office Depot ended the second quarter of 2014 with a total of 257 stores in the International Division, including 143 company-owned stores and 114 stores operated by franchisees and licensees.

    In June 2014, the company executed an agreement to sell its interest in the Grupo OfficeMax business in Mexico to the JV partners for cash. The assets and liabilities of the JV are classified as held for sale on the balance sheet and the JV operating results have been reclassified from the International division income statement to Other for comparability. The sale transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2014.

    Corporate Results

    Corporate includes support staff services and certain other expenses that are not allocated to the three divisions. Unallocated operating costs were $33 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to reported unallocated operating costs of $20 million in the second quarter of 2013, and combined pro forma unallocated operating costs of $31 million in the second quarter of 2013.

    In the second quarter of 2014, the company recorded an $80 million legal accrual relating primarily to a potential settlement arising from a lawsuit filed in 2009 in California state court. This matter related to contracts implemented in 2001 and 2006, and which expired several years ago. The company defended the matter vigorously for several years, but the case was likely to go on for several years longer, including a jury trial and potential appeals by the parties. A settlement is not an admission of any wrongdoing, avoids the costs and risks of protracted litigation, and allows the company to focus on its business priorities. Any potential settlement remains subject to formal approvals.

    Other

    The 2014 results of the Grupo OfficeMax JV, which have been reclassified from the International division to Other in GAAP reporting, have been excluded from non-GAAP reporting for comparability due to the sale of our JV interest. At the end of the second quarter of 2014 the Grupo OfficeMax JV owned 92 retail stores in Mexico.

    Other income (expense), net reported in the second quarter of 2013 included $7 million of income from the Office Depot de Mexico JV interest that was sold in July 2013.

    Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

    As of June 28, 2014, Office Depot had $768 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.1 billion available under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, for a total of approximately $1.9 billion in available liquidity. Total debt was $714 million, excluding $849 million of non-recourse debt related to credit-enhanced timber installment notes.

    In the second quarter of 2014, the company liquidated all remaining shares of Boise Cascade Company common stock after the distribution of 1.6 million shares in the first quarter related to its equity investment in Boise Cascade Holdings. The sale of shares in the second quarter resulted in proceeds of approximately $20 million.

    U.S. Retail Store Portfolio Optimization

    In the second quarter of 2014, Office Depot completed its analysis of the company’s U.S. retail store portfolio, and anticipates closing at least 400 stores by the end of 2016. The company now expects to close approximately 165 stores in 2014, with the majority to be closed in the fourth quarter. The total closures are expected to result in at least $100 million in annual run-rate synergies by the end of 2016. The one-time cash impact of the store closures in 2014 is expected to approximately break even, with working capital savings offsetting closure and transfer costs. In addition, for all store closures in 2014, the company expects to accrue approximately $40 million for any remaining lease obligations, subject to mitigation through negotiations with landlords and in some cases subleasing.

    Outlook

    For the remainder of 2014, Office Depot continues to expect that market trends will remain challenging across the company’s product lines and distribution channels, and therefore continues to anticipate total company sales in 2014 will be lower than 2013 combined pro forma sales. The expense deleverage from lower sales is expected to offset a portion of the merger synergies and operating improvements anticipated during the year. Based primarily upon earlier than expected realization of cost synergies in the second quarter, the company now expects to generate adjusted operating income of not less than $200 million in 2014 compared with its prior outlook of not less than $160 million.

    Including at least $100 million in annual run-rate synergies from the optimization of the U.S. retail store portfolio, the company also raised its estimated total annual run-rate of synergies to more than $700 million by the end of 2016, compared its prior outlook of more than $675 million. Of those synergies, the company now expects to realize at least $220 million during 2014, and to end the year with an annual run-rate of approximately $400 million, not including benefit from the retail store optimization.

    The company continues to estimate that $400 million of cash merger integration expenses will be required during the three-year period of 2014 through 2016 to substantially complete the integration, excluding costs related to optimizing the U.S. retail store portfolio. Approximately $300 million of these cash integration expenses will be incurred in 2014. The company continues to anticipate integration capital spending of approximately $200 million to $250 million during the 2014 through 2016 period. In 2014, the company expects capital spending to be approximately $150 million, excluding up to an additional $50 million in integration capital expenditures. Depreciation and amortization is expected to be approximately $300 million in 2014.

    GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

    (Unaudited)



    We report our results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). We also review certain financial measures excluding impacts of transactions that are not indicative of our core operations (“non-GAAP”). A reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures and the limitations on their use may be accessed on the Investor Center page on our Investor Relations website at investor.officedepot.com. Also, our measurement of these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly titled financial measures used by others and therefore may not be comparable. Such non-GAAP information should not be considered superior to the GAAP amounts. Certain portions of those reconciliations are provided in the following tables.

    The company’s outlook included in this release for 2014 adjusted operating income excludes charges or credits not indicative of our core operations, which may include but not be limited to merger integration expenses, restructuring charges, asset impairments, and significant legal accruals. The exact amount of these charges or credits are not currently determinable, but may be significant. Accordingly, the company is unable to provide a reconciliation to an equivalent operating income outlook for 2014. Additionally, adjusted operating income excludes 2014 results from the Grupo OfficeMax consolidated joint venture, as the Office Depot interest in the joint venture is pending sale.
