In 2016 our focus remains on driving synergies, stabilizing our top line and positioning the Company for long-term growth.”

Divisional Results

North American Retail Division

Retail Division sales were $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $1.5 billion in the prior year period. Fourth quarter 2015 sales declined 9%, primarily due to the impact of planned store closures during the year. Same-store sales were flat and benefited from the positive impact of transferred sales from closed stores and increased operational effectiveness.

North American Retail (in millions)   4Q15   4Q14       FY15   FY14
Sales   $1,405   $1,539       $6.004   $6,528
Same-store sales change from prior year   0%           0%    
Division operating income   $63   $16       $310   $126
Division operating income margin   4.5%   1.0%       5.2%   1.9%

Retail Division operating income was $63 million, or 4.5% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $16 million, or 1.0% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The improvement from the prior year quarter resulted largely from a higher gross margin rate and a decrease in occupancy costs driven by store closures, a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses including payroll and advertising, as well as favorable legal settlements.

Office Depot ended 2015 with a total of 1,564 retail stores in the North American Retail Division. During the quarter, the Company closed 56 stores.

North American Business Solutions Division

Business Solutions Division sales were $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015, a decline of 7% compared to the prior year period. Sales declined 6% in constant currency, and were lower in both the contract and direct channels. The sales decline was primarily due to substantial business disruption related to the pending acquisition by Staples, the scheduled transition out of a legacy OfficeMax buying arrangement, lower sales in Canada, and lower customer order fill rates attributable to delays in certain merger integration activities. Customer attrition from the decommissioning of our legacy OfficeMax ecommerce sites and the continued reduction in catalog sales through our call centers also contributed to the decline in sales.

Business Solutions (in millions)   4Q15   4Q14       FY15   FY14
Sales   $1,360   $1,460       $5,708   $6,013
Sales decline in constant currency from prior year   (6)%           (4)%    
Division operating income   $39   $66       $226   $232
Division operating income margin   2.9%   4.5%       4.0%   3.9%

Business Solutions Division operating income was $39 million, or 2.9% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $66 million, or 4.5% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease in operating income compared to the prior year quarter reflected the negative flow-through impact of lower sales, recognition of certain customer acquisition costs in the period, and a lower gross margin rate; partially offset by lower selling, general and administrative expenses including payroll and advertising.

International Division

International Division sales were $0.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015, a decline of 15% compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the negative impact of foreign currency translation. International sales declined 5% in constant currency primarily due to competitive market pressures, reduced spend from existing customers and disruption related to the European restructuring and pending acquisition by Staples.

International (in millions)   4Q15   4Q14       FY15   FY14
Sales   $712   $834       $2,773   $3,400
Sales decline in constant currency from prior year   (5)%           (6)%    
Division operating income   $7   $29       $23   $53
Division operating income margin   1.0%   3.5%       0.8%   1.6%

International Division operating income was $7 million, or 1.0% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $29 million, or 3.5% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The decline from the prior year quarter primarily reflected the negative flow-through impact of lower sales and a lower gross margin rate, as well as an increased negative foreign currency transaction impact related to certain merchandise purchases denominated in U.S. dollars; partially offset by lower selling, general and administrative expenses including payroll and support costs.

At the end of the 2015, there were a total of 270 retail stores in the International Division, including 147 company-owned stores and 123 stores operated by franchisees and licensees.

Corporate Results

Corporate includes support staff services and certain other expenses that are not allocated to the three divisions. Unallocated operating costs were $21 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $33 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of December 26, 2015, Office Depot had $1.1 billion in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $1.2 billion available under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, for total available liquidity of approximately $2.2 billion. Total debt was $690 million, excluding $819 million of non-recourse debt related to the credit-enhanced timber installment notes. For the full year 2015, cash provided by operating activities was $126 million, including $225 million in merger and Staples acquisition-related expenses, and $67 million in International restructuring costs. Capital expenditures were $163 million, $72 million of which were related to the merger integration.

Acquisition by Staples

On February 4, 2015, Office Depot and Staples announced that the companies entered into a definitive agreement under which Staples will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Office Depot. Under the terms of the agreement, Office Depot shareholders will receive, for each Office Depot share, $7.25 in cash and 0.2188 of a share in Staples stock at closing. The transaction has been approved by both companies’ Board of Directors and Office Depot stockholders. The proposed transaction received antitrust clearance from the regulators in Australia, New Zealand and China.

On September 25, 2015, the European Commission announced that it opened a Phase II review of the Staples Acquisition under the EU Merger Regulation. Subsequently, the European Commission, the Company and Staples mutually agreed to extend the deadline for the Phase II review. On February 10, 2016, the European Commission approved the transaction subject to certain divestiture requirements.

On December 7, 2015, the United States Federal Trade Commission (the “FTC”) informed Office Depot and Staples that it intends to block the Staples Acquisition. On the same date, Office Depot and Staples announced their intent to contest the FTC’s decision to challenge the transaction. Also on December 7, 2015, the Canadian Competition Bureau filed an application to block the transaction with the Canadian Competition Tribunal. On February 2, 2016, the Company and Staples announced that they entered into a letter agreement to waive, until May 16, 2016, certain of their respective rights to terminate the Staples Merger Agreement. A hearing on the FTC’s preliminary injunction of the transaction is expected to begin in federal district court on March 21, 2016, with a decision expected by May 10, 2016.

Outlook

Office Depot expects total company sales in 2016 to be lower than 2015, primarily due to the impact of store closures, continued challenging market conditions in our industry, and ongoing business disruption from the extended regulatory approval process related to the pending acquisition by Staples. The Company expects this disruption to continue through at least the first half of 2016, while the Company completes the ongoing litigation with the FTC.

Office Depot closed 181 stores in 2015 as part of its previously announced U.S. retail store optimization plan. The Company expects to close more than 50 additional stores in 2016 for a total of at least 400 closures under this plan.

The Company expects incremental integration synergies, restructuring benefits and operating efficiencies to more than offset the negative flow-through impact of lower sales in 2016. As a result, Office Depot preliminarily expects to generate approximately $500 million in adjusted operating income in fiscal 2016, with the year-over-year improvement occurring in the second half of the year.

Office Depot continues to expect total annual run-rate merger synergy benefits of more than $750 million from the OfficeMax integration and approximately $80 million in benefits related to the European restructuring plan. Approximately $300 million in incremental synergy benefits were realized in 2015. The Company chose to delay several merger integration initiatives in 2015, primarily related to contract platform consolidation and supply chain optimization, due to the pending acquisition by Staples. Office Depot now expects the integration to extend beyond 2016 and be substantially complete by the end of 2017.

The Company expects to incur the remaining $100 million of cash merger integration expenses during the 2016-2017 period.

In 2016, capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $250 million, including investments that support critical priorities and approximately $50 million related to merger integration. Depreciation and amortization is expected to be approximately $225 million in 2016.

Additionally, the Company incurred approximately $110 million expenses in 2015 related to the pending acquisition by Staples, primarily consisting of employee retention costs and advisory fees, and estimates it will incur approximately $30 million of additional expenses in 2016.

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 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 for 2016 adjusted operating income, included in this release, 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 2016.

This change has not been applied to the tax provision for determining GAAP net income attributable to Office Depot, Inc. or EPS as the company remains in a cumulative loss for the 36 month period on a GAAP basis.
