"I am extremely pleased with our performance in the second quarter as the execution of our strategy is driving improved sales trends across all three of our operating divisions," said Gerry Smith, chief executive officer of Office Depot. "Sales in the Business Solutions Division were up an impressive 4% in the quarter driven by our acquisition strategy and growth in the adjacency categories beyond office products. I'm also encouraged by the early success of our initiatives to increase services, which now represent 16% of total sales. In addition to the sales performance, our efficiency and cost control initiatives allowed us to deliver an increase in year-over-year operating income and cash flow for the Company in the quarter. I'm confident that we have the right strategy in place to grow the business long term and we have assembled a talented and dedicated team that is focused on driving continued execution across the enterprise."

Consolidated Results

Reported (GAAP) Results

Total reported sales for the second quarter of 2018 were $2.6 billion compared to $2.4 billion in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 11%. Product sales in the second quarter were up 1%, while service revenues grew 120%, driven primarily by the revenues contributed by the CompuCom acquisition. On a consolidated basis, services represent approximately 16% of total Company sales. Service revenue excluding CompuCom grew 8% in the second quarter, due to the Company's strategic efforts to grow overall business services revenue.

Sales Breakdown (in millions)   2Q18   2Q17   YTD18   YTD17
Product sales   $2,196   $2,167   $4,619   $4,627

In the second quarter of 2018, Office Depot reported operating income of $48 million and net income from continuing operations was $19 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to operating income of $41 million, net income from continuing operations of $21 million and $0.04 per share in the second quarter of 2017.

For the first half of 2018, Office Depot reported operating income of $125 million compared to an operating income of $165 million in the first half of 2017. Net income from continuing operations for the first half of 2018 was $52 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to net income from continuing operations of $95 million, or $0.18 per share, in the first half of 2017. The year-over-year decrease was due to lower gross margins from store and supply chain cost deleverage, as well as higher selling, general and administrative expenses experienced primarily in the first quarter of 2018.

Adjusted (non-GAAP) Results (2)

Adjusted results for the second quarter of 2018 exclude charges and credits totaling $15 million, which were comprised of $12 million in merger, acquisition and integration-related expenses and $3 million in restructuring and other charges, as well as the after-tax impact of these items.

  • Second quarter 2018 adjusted operating income was $63 million compared to an adjusted operating income of $63 million in the second quarter of 2017. These amounts include a negative impact for the recent change in pension accounting standards of $2 million in the second quarter of 2018 and $5 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Second quarter 2018 adjusted net income from continuing operations was $30 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net income from continuing operations of $34 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

For the first half of 2018, adjusted operating income was $156 million compared to an adjusted operating income of $212 million in the first half of 2017.

The year-over-year decrease was due to lower gross margins from store and supply chain cost deleverage, as well as higher selling, general and administrative expenses experienced primarily in the first quarter of 2018.

(2) Adjusted results represent non-GAAP measures and exclude charges or credits not indicative of core operations and the tax effect of these items, which may include but not be limited to merger integration, restructuring, acquisition costs, asset impairments and executive transition costs.

Second Quarter Division Results

Business Solutions Division

Business Solutions Division reported sales were $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2018, up 4% compared to the second quarter of 2017. The year-over-year increase reflects the impact of acquisitions and eCommerce growth. Without the impact of acquisitions, sales were approximately flat with the prior year. This is a sequential quarterly improvement of approximately 300 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2018. The sequential improvement was primarily driven by growth in core supplies and services. Product sales in the second quarter increased 3%, while services revenue increased 15% compared to the prior year period.

Business Solutions Division (in millions)   2Q18   2Q17   YTD18   YTD17
Sales   $1,298   $1,248   $2,626   $2,563
Sales change from prior year   4%       2%    
Division operating income   $67   $64   $122   $122
Division operating income margin   5.2%   5.1%   4.6%   4.8%

Business Solutions Division operating income was $67 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $64 million in the second quarter of 2017. The increase in operating income versus the prior year was primarily driven by higher sales volumes as well as the benefit of cost reduction initiatives.

Retail Division

Retail Division reported sales were $1.1 billion in the second quarter of 2018, down 5% versus the prior year period. Planned store closures and an approximately $10 million negative impact to revenue resulting from the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard contributed to the decline. Product sales in the second quarter declined 7%, while services revenue increased 12% compared to the prior year period, excluding the revenue recognition impact. Comparable sales declined 2% versus the prior year, primarily driven by fewer transactions and lower average order values. This is a sequential quarterly improvement of approximately 200 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2018.

Retail Division (in millions)   2Q18   2Q17   YTD18   YTD17
Sales   $1,053   $1,111   $2,297   $2,469
Comparable store sales change from prior year   (2)%      

(4)%

   
Division operating income   $22   $20   $94   $132
Division operating income margin   2.1%   1.8%   4.1%   5.3%

Retail Division operating income was $22 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $20 million in the second quarter of 2017. The increase in operating income versus the prior year was primarily due to the positive impact of ongoing efficiency and cost reduction initiatives.

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company closed 2 stores and ended the quarter with a total of 1,374 stores in the Retail Division.

CompuCom Division

CompuCom Division results are only included in total Company results for the second quarter of 2018, as this business was not part of Office Depot in the prior year period. However, unaudited adjusted historical results for the second quarter of 2017 have been presented for reference. Accordingly, CompuCom Division reported sales were $277 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 3% versus sales of $269 million in the prior year historical period, with increases in both product and services revenue.

Sales   $277   $269   $535   $529

Division operating income   $6   $16   $12   $22
Division operating income margin   2.2%   5.9%   2.2%   4.2%

CompuCom Division operating income was $6 million in the second quarter of 2018 versus historical operating income of $16 million in the second quarter of 2017. Operating income was down versus the prior year primarily due to a lower gross margin on product sales mix, expenses associated with new account acquisition, investment expenses to support growth initiatives, and incremental depreciation, amortization and acquisition-related expenses, partially offset by cost reductions and efficiencies.

(4) The CompuCom unaudited adjusted historical results for the second quarter of 2017 reflect information prepared prior to our acquisition and have not been subject to audit or the Company's internal control processes. Results have been adjusted for historical restructuring and acquisition costs and have been presented for reference purposes only. The results for 2017 may not be comparable to current year results nor indicative of the results of future operations of the CompuCom Division or the results that would have been attained had the acquisition been completed on January 1, 2017.

Corporate and Other

Corporate includes support staff services and certain other expenses that are not allocated to the Company's operating divisions. Unallocated expenses increased to $33 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $21 million in the second quarter of 2017 primarily due to costs associated with growth initiatives and compensation expenses.

The Company's "Other" segment, which contains the retained sourcing and trading operations in Asia and the elimination of intersegment revenues, had no material contribution to sales or operating income in the second quarter of 2018.

As previously announced, during the second quarter Office Depot successfully completed the sale of its business in New Zealand on May 4, 2018. Sale of the combined Australia and New Zealand businesses provided approximately $115 million of incremental cash into continuing operations in fiscal 2018.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2018, Office Depot had total available liquidity of $1.7 billion consisting of $0.7 billion in cash and cash equivalents and $1.0 billion available under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. Total debt was $1.0 billion, excluding $765 million of non-recourse debt related to the credit-enhanced timber installment notes.

For the second quarter of 2018, cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations was $44 million, including the impact of $7 million in OfficeMax merger–related costs, $5 million in acquisition and integration-related costs and $3 million in restructuring costs, compared to $27 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Capital expenditures in the quarter were $37 million. Accordingly, Free Cash Flow of continuing operations was $7 million in the second quarter of 2018. For the first half of 2018, cash provided by operating activities was $251 million with $74 million of capital expenditures for Free Cash Flow of continuing operations of $177 million.

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.025 per share on June 15, 2018 for approximately $14 million and made a $19 million scheduled debt repayment on the 2022 Term Loan. In addition, Office Depot repurchased approximately 3 million shares at a total cost of $8 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Outlook (5)

"I am encouraged by the momentum we are seeing across all of our businesses and the success we are realizing in generating working capital improvements. Our strategic growth initiatives continue to gain traction, which underlies my confidence in achieving our most recent full-year outlook, which we provided last quarter," said Gerry Smith.

Full-Year Outlook (5)   FY 2018
Sales   ~ $10.8 billion
Adjusted Operating Income   ~ $360 million
Free Cash Flow   ~ $350 million

(5) The Company's outlook for 2018 included in this release is for continuing operations only and includes non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted operating income, which excludes charges or credits not indicative of core operations, which may include but not be limited to merger integration expenses, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, executive transition costs, asset impairments and other significant items that currently cannot be predicted. The exact amount of these charges or credits are not currently determinable, but may be significant. Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide equivalent reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP for these financial measures.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations
(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 related to our core operations ("non-GAAP"). Management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures enhances the ability of its investors to analyze trends in its business and provides a means to compare periods that may be affected by various items that might obscure trends or developments in its business. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to assist in making business decisions and assessing overall performance. Non-GAAP measures help to evaluate programs and activities that are intended to attract and satisfy customers, separate from expenses and credits directly associated with Merger, restructuring, and certain similar items. Certain non-GAAP measures are also used for short and long-term incentive programs.

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. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to the GAAP measures, but only to clarify some information and assist the reader. We have included reconciliations of this information to the most comparable GAAP measures in the tables included within this material.

The Company's outlook for 2018 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 other significant items that currently cannot be predicted. 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 2018.

Amounts may not foot due to rounding Note: The company has released a majority of its deferred tax asset valuation allowances in the U.S. for GAAP purposes. The non-GAAP tax calculation removed the U.S. valuation allowances in the first quarter of 2015 because of the cumulative income on a non-GAAP basis.
