Second Quarter 2023 Summary(1)(2)(3)

Total reported sales of $1.9 billion, down 6% versus the prior year, primarily due to lower sales in its Office Depot consumer division, largely driven by 68 fewer retail locations in service compared to the prior year, as well as lower retail and online consumer traffic and transactions
GAAP operating income of $46 million and net income from continuing operations of $34 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, versus $28 million and $20 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, respectively in the prior year
Adjusted operating income of $53 million, compared to $54 million in the second quarter of 2022; adjusted EBITDA of $86 million, compared to $91 million in the second quarter of 2022

“Our continued focus on operational excellence and disciplined capital allocation drove solid operating results and a strong increase in earnings per share,” said Gerry Smith, chief executive officer of The ODP Corporation. “ODP Business Solutions led the way, expanding its margin profile and driving an impressive year-over-year increase in operating income. Veyer added new third-party business, remaining on-track to more than double external EBITDA in 2023, and Varis continues to onboard customers and incorporate feedback and new features onto its platform. While the weaker macroeconomic environment and somewhat sluggish consumer activity created top-line headwinds in our consumer business during the quarter, Office Depot continued to provide a superior customer experience and we are encouraged by our expanded assortment, which positions us well for the upcoming back-to-school selling season.”

“Combining our solid operating performance with our continued disciplined capital allocation, which included repurchasing about $31 million of our shares in the quarter, we drove an impressive 25% year-over-year increase in adjusted earnings per share in the second quarter,” Smith continued.

“Our low-cost business model, multiple routes to market, and strong balance sheet have us well positioned to continue navigating the ongoing challenging macroeconomic conditions. Moving ahead, we will continue to drive operational excellence across our four business units and prioritize capital allocation, remaining squarely focused on driving value for our shareholders,” Smith concluded.

 

Consolidated Results

 

Reported (GAAP) Results

Total reported sales for the second quarter of 2023 were $1.9 billion, a decrease of 6% compared with the same period last year. This was driven primarily by lower sales in its consumer division, Office Depot, primarily due to 68 fewer stores in service compared to last year related to planned store closures, as well as lower retail and online consumer traffic. Sales at ODP Business Solutions Division were flat year over year, as increases in sales for paper and certain adjacency categories, and flexible pricing strategies, were largely offset by lower sales in product categories including ink, toner, office supplies and personal protective equipment. Additionally, Veyer provided strong logistics support for the ODP Business Solutions and Office Depot Divisions, and began to capture additional demand for its supply chain and procurement solutions among other third-party customers.

 

The Company reported operating income of $46 million in the second quarter of 2023, up 64% compared to operating income of $28 million in the prior year period. Operating results in the second quarter of 2023 included $7 million of charges. These charges consisted primarily of $6 million associated with non-cash asset impairments largely related to the operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets associated with the Company’s retail store locations. Net income from continuing operations was $34 million, or $0.87 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2023, up from $20 million, or $0.39 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2022.

 

Adjusted (non-GAAP) Results(1)

Adjusted results for the second quarter of 2023 exclude charges and credits totaling $7 million as described above and the associated tax impacts.

 

Second quarter of 2023 adjusted EBITDA was $86 million compared to $91 million in the prior year period. This included depreciation and amortization of $29 million and $34 million in the second quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively
Second quarter of 2023 adjusted operating income was $53 million compared to $54 million in the second quarter of 2022
Second quarter of 2023 adjusted net income from continuing operations was $39 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, compared to $39 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 25% on a per share basis

 

Division Results

 

ODP Business Solutions Division

Leading B2B distribution solutions provider serving small, medium and enterprise level companies with an annual trailing-twelve-month revenue in excess of $4 billion

Reported sales were $1.0 billion in the second quarter of 2023, flat compared to the same period last year, as return to the office trends and flexible pricing strategies were offset by higher levels of unemployment and other macroeconomic factors

2


 

 

Drove strong sales in paper and adjacency categories, including furniture, cleaning and breakroom supplies, and copy and print services
Total adjacency category sales, including cleaning and breakroom, furniture, technology, and copy and print, were 44% of total ODP Business Solutions’ sales
Continued strong pipeline and signed renewed business in excess of $100 million in customer agreements
Operating income was $45 million in the second quarter of 2023, up 25% over the same period last year, related primarily to higher gross margins. As a percentage of sales, operating income margin was 4.5%, up 100 basis points compared to the same period last year

 

Office Depot Division

Leading provider of retail consumer and small business products and services distributed via Office Depot and OfficeMax retail locations and an award-winning eCommerce presence

Reported sales were $0.9 billion in the second quarter of 2023, down 13% compared to the prior year period partially due to 68 fewer retail outlets in service associated with planned store closures, as well as lower demand relative to last year in certain product categories and lower online sales. The Company closed 7 retail stores in the quarter and had 952 stores at quarter end. Sales were down approximately 8% on a comparable store basis
Store traffic and demand relative to last year was negatively impacted by the recovery from the pandemic as a greater percentage of customers returned to the office, as well as weaker macroeconomic activity and higher unemployment
Operating income was $35 million in the second quarter of 2023, compared to operating income of $49 million during the same period last year. As a percentage of sales, operating income was 4%, or down approximately 90 basis points compared to the same period last year. This result was primarily driven by the flow through impact from lower sales and impacts related to inflation

 

Veyer Division

Veyer is a supply chain, distribution, procurement and global sourcing operation, supporting Office Depot and ODP Business Solutions, as well as other third-party customers. Assets and capabilities of Veyer include approximately 9 million square feet of infrastructure; ~100 facilities (distribution centers, cross-docks, and direct import centers); a large private fleet of vehicles; and next-day delivery to 98.5% of US population

In the second quarter of 2023, Veyer provided strong support for its internal customers, ODP Business Solutions and Office Depot, as well as for its third-party customers, generating sales of $1.3 billion
Operating income was $6 million in the second quarter of 2023, down from $8 million in the prior year period related to lower sales in Office Depot
In the quarter relative to last year, sales and EBITDA generated from third party customers was up nearly 62% and over 141%, respectively, resulting in sales of approximately $10 million and EBITDA of $3 million in the quarter

 

Varis Division

Varis is a tech-enabled B2B indirect procurement marketplace launched in the fourth quarter of 2022, which provides buyers and suppliers a seamless way to transact through the platform’s consumer-like buying experience and advanced spend management tools

Successfully launched the platform in the fourth quarter of 2022; onboarding new customers, incorporating feedback, and adding new features to the platform
Varis generated revenues in the quarter of $2 million, an increase of $1 million compared to the second quarter of 2022
Operating loss was $14 million, compared to an operating loss of $16 million in the second quarter of 2022, primarily driven by lower employee related costs and as the division continued to invest in its business and worked to onboard customers
 

Share Repurchases

 

The Company continued to execute under its previously announced $1 billion share repurchase authorization, available through year-end 2025. During the second quarter of 2023, the Company repurchased 724 thousand shares for $31 million. Since the inception of the authorization beginning in November 2022, the Company has repurchased approximately 8.3 million shares for $387 million.

 

The number of shares to be repurchased in the future and the timing of such transactions will depend on a variety of factors, including market conditions, regulatory requirements, and other corporate considerations.

The current authorization could be suspended or discontinued at any time as determined by the Board of Directors.

 

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

 

As of July 1, 2023, ODP had total available liquidity of approximately $1.1 billion, consisting of $335 million in cash and cash equivalents and $811 million of available credit under the Third Amended Credit Agreement. Total debt was $181 million.

 

For the second quarter of 2023, cash used by operating activities of continuing operations was $8 million, which included $1 million in restructuring and other spend, compared to cash used by operating activities of continuing operations of $114 million in the second quarter of the prior year, which included $14 million in restructuring and other spend. The year-over-year improvement in operating cash flow largely related to stronger operating results, prudent inventory management, and timing of certain working capital items.

 

Capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2023 were $23 million versus $21 million in the prior year period, reflecting continuing growth investments in the Company’s digital transformation, distribution network, and eCommerce capabilities. Adjusted Free Cash outflow(3) was $30 million in the second quarter of 2023, a significant improvement compared to $121 million outflow in the prior year period.

 

“I would like to thank our entire team for their continued efforts on carefully managing inventory and other working capital items, which resulted in significantly stronger year-over-year cash flow in the quarter,” said Anthony Scaglione, executive vice president and chief financial officer of The ODP Corporation. “As we move into the second half of the year, we will maintain our disciplined approach and focus on managing operating costs, maximizing cash flow in our business, and optimizing our capital allocation plan,” Scaglione added.

 

Updated 2023 Expectations

 

“We remain cautiously optimistic about the second half of the year and are excited about the opportunity to continue driving operational excellence and delivering strong value for our shareholders,” said Smith. “While we recognize that the challenging macroeconomic environment is causing somewhat sluggish consumer activity and market disruptions, we're enthusiastic about our strong position and are focused on driving the assets we control to deliver long-term profitable growth. Through executing along our three horizons strategy, driving our four business unit model, and remaining focused on prudently deploying capital to maximize shareholder value, we’re on a path to unlocking ODP's potential, creating a compelling value proposition for all of our stakeholders.”

 

The Company’s full year guidance for 2023 included in this release includes non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share and Adjusted Free Cash Flow. These measures exclude 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 without unreasonable efforts. The exact amount of these charges or credits are not currently determinable but may be significant. Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide equivalent GAAP measures or reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP for these financial measures without unreasonable effort.

 

The Company is updating its full year guidance for 2023 as follows:

“We delivered solid performance in the first half of the year and remain in a strong capital position with our low-cost business model mindset,” said Scaglione. “While we’re cautious on the state of the consumer and general macroeconomic conditions, our continued focus on operational excellence has us well positioned to continue driving solid results for the balance of the year. Our updated guidance assumes stabilization in overall economic trends in the second half of 2023 and reflects our expectations for revenue trends given first half performance, confirming the low end of our previous full-year revenue guidance range, while reaffirming all other operating metrics and increasing our earnings per share guidance given our strong performance to date, lower than expected interest and tax expense, and continued share buyback activity,” Scaglione added.

THE ODP CORPORATION

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.

 

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure, which we define as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures. We believe that free cash flow is an important indicator that provides additional perspective on our ability to generate cash to fund our strategy and expand our distribution network. Adjusted free cash flow is also a non-GAAP measure, which we define as free cash flow excluding cash charges associated with the Company’s Maximize B2B Restructuring, and the previously planned separation of the consumer business and re-alignment.
