Office Depot Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

16:01 EST Tuesday, November 05, 2013

BOCA RATON, Fla. (Business Wire) -- Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of office supplies and services, today announced results for the fiscal quarter ended September 28, 2013.

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS 1

Total Company sales for the third quarter of 2013 were $2.6 billion, down 3% compared to the third quarter of 2012 in both U.S. dollars and in constant currency.

The Company reported net income, after preferred stock dividends, of $133 million or $0.41 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss, after preferred stock dividends, of $70 million or $0.25 per share in the third quarter of 2012.

  • Third quarter 2013 results included a $381 million pre-tax gain on the sale of our investment in the Mexican joint venture (JV), as well as $138 million in income tax expense driven largely by the JV sale. The quarter also included a $22 million preferred stock redemption dividend, and approximately $93 million of pre-tax charges. The charges were comprised primarily of $44 million in goodwill impairment triggered by the JV sale, $40 million in merger and certain shareholder-related expenses, $4 million in restructuring activities, and $5 million in non-cash store impairment charges in the North American Retail Division. Excluding the items above, adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2013, after preferred stock dividends, was $5 million or $0.02 per share.
  • The prior year third quarter results included approximately $96 million of pre-tax charges, consisting of $88 million in asset impairment charges and $8 million in restructuring and other charges. Excluding these items, third quarter 2012 net income, after preferred stock dividends, was $18 million or $0.06 per share.

“Although we experienced some weakness in July, we had a relatively strong back-to-school season this year as evidenced by sales increases in our school supplies categories and K-12 education customers,” said Neil Austrian, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Office Depot. “I'm pleased that we were able to deliver these results while continuing to make progress with the integration planning for the pending merger with OfficeMax.”

Total Company gross profit margin decreased 45 basis points in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period, with decreases in the North American Retail and International Divisions partially offset by an increase in the North American Business Solutions Division.

Total Company operating expenses decreased by $33 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period. When adjusted for merger and certain shareholder-related expenses and impairment and restructuring charges, total Company operating expenses decreased by $30 million versus the prior year period.

Third quarter 2013 adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), which excludes the gain on sale of our Mexican JV, charges related to goodwill impairment, merger and certain shareholder-related expenses, restructuring activities, and store asset impairment charges, was $42 million, compared to adjusted EBIT of $54 million last year in the same quarter. The third quarter 2012 results included $11 million of miscellaneous income generated by the Mexican JV.

Income tax expense of $155 million in the third quarter of 2013 includes $146 million of income tax expense resulting from the gain on the sale of the Mexican JV, as well as the continuing impact of valuation allowances and the timing of earnings within various tax jurisdictions.

The Company ended the third quarter of 2013 with a use of free cash flow of $58 million, compared to positive free cash flow of $190 million in the prior year period. The use of cash in the third quarter of 2013 includes the income taxes noted above from the Mexican JV sale as well as $9 million in payments of merger and certain shareholder-related expenses.

1 Includes non-GAAP information. Additional information is provided in our Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 28, 2013. Reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures can be found in this release, as well as on our Investor Relations website at http://investor.officedepot.com.

THIRD QUARTER DIVISION RESULTS

North American Retail Division

The North American Retail Division reported third quarter 2013 sales of $1.1 billion, a decrease of 4% compared to the prior year period.

Comparable store sales in the 1,063 stores that have been open for more than one year decreased 2% for the third quarter of 2013. Ink and toner sales were down in the quarter, partially impacted by higher sales from certain vendor promotions in the prior year. Certain technology and related category sales were lower in the third quarter, but sales of tablets and mobility products increased. Compared to the prior year period, paper and printer sales were down and were impacted by lower average selling prices, Copy and Print Depot and school supplies increased, and furniture sales were down. Average order value was down approximately 1% in the quarter and customer transaction counts declined about 2% compared to the same period last year.

The North American Retail Division reported operating income of $10 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to an operating loss of $52 million in the prior year period. The Division operating income/loss included charges of $5 million and $74 million in the third quarter of 2013 and 2012, respectively, which were driven by non-cash store asset impairments and restructuring activities. Excluding the charges, third quarter 2013 adjusted operating income was $15 million, compared to $22 million in third quarter 2012. The $7 million year-over-year decrease resulted primarily from the negative flow-through impact of lower sales and a 58 basis point gross margin decrease, partially offset by initiative-driven expense reductions including payroll, professional fees, advertising, and general & administrative expenses.

At the end of the third quarter of 2013, Office Depot operated 1,104 stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The North American Retail Division opened two new stores and closed seven during the third quarter of 2013.

North American Business Solutions Division

The North American Business Solutions Division reported third quarter 2013 sales of $811 million, a 2% decrease compared to the prior year period.

Contract channel sales in the third quarter of 2013 were down low-single digits versus the prior year period. The decline was driven primarily by the restructuring and relocation of the technology sales organization and sales to federal customers, who continue to experience significant budgetary constraints. The private sector experienced sales softness, particularly within large and enterprise accounts. Sales improved year over year in the public sector, driven by education, state, and local accounts. In the Direct channel, third quarter 2013 sales were flat compared to the prior year quarter. Online sales increased in the quarter and sales through our catalog and call center operations continued to decline.

The North American Business Solutions Division reported third quarter 2013 operating income of $39 million, compared to $30 million in the same period last year. The Division operating income included restructuring charges of $2 million in the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the charges, the $6 million year-over-year improvement in operating income reflects a 13 basis point gross margin increase which was driven by margin initiatives, as well as lower advertising, payroll, and general & administrative expenses.

International Division

The International Division reported third quarter 2013 sales of $681 million, a decrease of 2% in U.S. dollars and 4% in constant currency compared to the third quarter of 2012.

European Contract sales decreased mid-single digits in third quarter 2013 compared to the prior year period. Strategic decisions to exit certain unprofitable customers partially contributed to the sales declines. In the Direct channel, the rate of year-over-year sales decline continued to improve sequentially in third quarter 2013. The Division continued to take pricing actions on ink and toner in several markets. Retail sales in the quarter were down largely as a result of store closures in Sweden, partially offset by increased sales in France.

The International Division reported operating income of $3 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to an operating loss of $15 million in the same period last year. The Division operating income in the quarter included $3 million in restructuring charges, compared to an operating loss in the third quarter of 2012 that included $19 million of charges related to asset impairments and restructuring activities. Excluding the charges, third quarter 2013 adjusted operating income was $6 million, compared to adjusted operating income of $4 million in third quarter 2012. The $2 million year-over-year improvement resulted primarily from operating expense reductions including advertising, payroll and general & administrative expenses, offset by sales declines and an 81 basis point gross margin decrease largely driven by the ink and toner pricing actions.

The movement in exchange rates had a minimal impact on International Division operating income in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.

Other Matters

On July 9, 2013, the Company completed the sale of its investment in the Mexican JV to Grupo Gigante for the Mexican Peso amount of 8,777 million in cash, or approximately $680 million. In the third quarter the Company recognized a $381 million pre-tax gain on the sale as well as a $44 million goodwill impairment related to the transaction.

At the end of the third quarter of 2013, the Company had $725 million in cash and cash equivalents on hand and $728 million available under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, for a total of approximately $1.5 billion in available liquidity.

Additional information on the Company's third quarter results can be found in our Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on November 5, 2013, as well as in the Investor Relations section of our corporate website, www.officedepot.com, under the category Financial Information.
