“It’s an exciting day for ODP, as we mark the continued evolution of our B2B pivot and digital transformation, drove solid quarterly results, and took the next step in unlocking shareholder value,” said Gerry Smith, chief executive officer of The ODP Corporation.

“While conditions related to COVID-19 persisted in the quarter and adverse weather temporarily impacted operations in the Southwest, the continued execution of our low-cost model drove solid operating and free cash flow results, as we continued to make meaningful progress on our strategic initiatives. We delivered our value proposition to customers at home, in the office, and through our Retail channel, which experienced strong demand, including a 35% year-over-year increase in our buy online, pick-up in store (BOPIS) offering. While COVID-19 conditions continued to impact our contract channel, we did achieve one of our highest levels of net new customer wins and are encouraged by the increased business activity and traction exiting the quarter,” he added.

“The significant progress on our B2B pivot and digital transformation initiatives have us well positioned for the future. Our digital platform business integrated BuyerQuest, our new procure-to-pay (P2P) platform, and we advanced our collaboration with Microsoft. Additionally, the supplier community continues to gain interest as they realize the broad capabilities and reach of our new digital platform. In all, we are well on our way to pursue future growth in the large and growing business commerce market.”

“Also, as we described in a separate release, we’re taking an important step to unlock shareholder value by planning a tax-free spin-off of our B2B businesses, creating two, independent, publicly-traded companies. As separate companies, we believe all stakeholders will benefit from the increased strategic focus and flexibility, aligned capital structures and growth profiles, which will enhance our prospects for long-term value creation. In support of our strategy, we are happy to announce that our Board has authorized a new $300 million stock repurchase program,” he added.    

Consolidated Results

Reported (GAAP) Results

Total reported sales for the first quarter of 2021 were $2.4 billion, a decrease of 13% compared to the first quarter of 2020. The year-over-year decrease in revenue was primarily the result of fewer retail stores in service and lower sales driven by impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Product sales in the first quarter were down 12% relative to the prior year period. Service revenue in the first quarter was down 19% related to lower comparable sales at CompuCom as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and the previously disclosed malware incident, and lower sales of services in our BSD and Retail Division, both of which were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Net income was $53 million, or $0.95 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $45 million, or $0.84 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2020.

First Quarter Division Results

Business Solutions Division (BSD)

 

  

Reported sales were $1.1 billion in the first quarter of 2021, down 16% compared to the same period last year. Sales performance was impacted by conditions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, which impacted schools and business operations

 

  

Demand in our eCommerce channel increased 3% with growth in certain adjacency product sales, which comprised 44% of total BSD revenues in the quarter

 

  

Operating income was $17 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $40 million in the prior year period

Retail Division

 

  

Reported sales were $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2021, down 10% versus the prior year period, but up sequentially from $951 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Planned closures of underperforming stores drove the reported decline with 149 fewer retail outlets at the end of the first quarter as compared to the prior year. The Company closed 8 stores in the quarter and had 1,146 stores at quarter end

 

  

Partially offsetting these impacts were increased sales per shopper as well as a 35% increase in our buy online, pick up in store (BOPIS) offering

 

  

Operating income was $100 million in the first quarter of 2021, up 15% over the same period last year. As a percentage of sales, this performance reflects an approximate 210 basis point margin improvement

CompuCom Division

 

  

Reported sales were $196 million in the first quarter of 2021, down 17% compared to the prior year period. The year-over-year decrease was due primarily to lower services volumes related to the COVID-19 outbreak and other factors, as well as lower billed service revenues as a result of the malware incident

 

  

CompuCom reported $1 million operating loss in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $3 million operating income in the prior year period

 

  

The Company continues to make progress on its plan for a value-maximizing sale of its CompuCom Division to maximize CompuCom’s full potential and drive forward its future value and success

B2B Pivot and Digital Transformation Progress

As a primary component of its strategy to drive growth in higher value industry segments, the Company has made significant progress on its B2B pivot and digital transformation initiatives. The Company recently established its new technology business, announced its digital transformation leadership team, acquired one of the leading Procure-to-Pay software companies, and entered into a collaboration with Microsoft corporation.

During the quarter, the Company’s new technology platform business integrated BuyerQuest, its new leading P2P eProcurement software platform, launching new customers and growing its pipeline of new business opportunities. Furthering its collaboration with Microsoft, in April, the Company’s digital technology business successfully completed a live technical demonstration of the platform at an industry technology conference, representing an important step as the Company prepares for a full launch to Microsoft’s Business Central customers scheduled for late 2021. The Company continues to generate strong interest from suppliers as they begin to recognize the expansive reach and innovative capabilities of the new digital platform.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of March 27, 2021, ODP had total available liquidity of approximately $1.7 billion, consisting of $753 million in cash and cash equivalents and $946 million of available credit under the Third Amended Credit Agreement. Total debt was $367 million.

For the first quarter of 2021, cash provided by operating activities was $86 million, which included less than $1 million in acquisition and integration-related costs and $6 million in restructuring costs, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $188 million in the first quarter of the prior year, which included $4 million and $10 million, respectively, of the same costs. The reduction in operating cash flow was driven primarily by higher working capital usage in the quarter.

Capital expenditures in the quarter were $13 million versus $25 million in the prior year period, reflecting lower investment in retail operations, while continuing growth investments in the Company’s digital transformation, distribution network, and eCommerce capabilities. The cash charges associated with the Company’s Maximize B2B Restructuring Plan and its Business Acceleration Program in the quarter were $5 million and $1 million, respectively. Accordingly, Adjusted Free Cash Flow was $79 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Additionally, as part of its ongoing commitment to drive shareholder value in support of its strategic initiatives, the Company announced today that its Board of Directors authorized a new $300 million stock repurchase program. This new program, available through June 30, 2022, replaces the current share repurchase program that was temporarily suspended during the onset of COVID-19. The authorization permits the Company to repurchase common stock from time-to-time through a combination of open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions, 10b5-1 trading plans, accelerated stock repurchase transactions and/or other derivative transactions. The stock repurchase program may be modified, extended, suspended or discontinued at any time. The exact number and timing of share repurchases will depend on market conditions and other factors, and will be funded through available cash balances. “Reflecting our team’s confidence in the future, this new authorization will allow us to opportunistically enhance the return of capital to shareholders as we execute our strategic initiatives. As we make progress, our Board of Director’s will continue to evaluate our capital allocation plans in order to maximize long-term value for shareholders,” Smith added.

BSD year-over-year sales performance was impacted by conditions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, negatively impacting sales primarily in the Company’s contract channel as the operations of many businesses were interrupted and the majority of school systems remained closed to in-class learning. The Company utilized diverse channels and a broader product portfolio to meet customer needs. Demand through its eCommerce channel grew by 3%. Adjacency categories include cleaning and breakroom, personal protective equipment (PPE), technology, furniture, and copy and print, and comprised 44% of total BSD revenues in the quarter. BSD operating income was impacted by lower sales volume related to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and product mix, partially offset by cost efficiency measures. The Company’s contract channel experienced stronger demand late in the quarter as more businesses resumed normal operations and a great number of school systems returned to in-class learning.

The Retail Division reported sales were down 10% versus the prior year period related to planned closures of underperforming stores with 149 fewer retail outlets at the end of the first quarter as compared to the prior year. Partially offsetting these impacts were increased sales per shopper, increased demand for certain adjacency product categories, and stronger adoption of our BOPIS offering. Retail Division operating income was up 15% over the same period last year and reflects a 210 basis point margin improvement. The increase in operating income versus the prior year was largely related to lower SG&A from cost savings initiatives, improvements in distribution and inventory management costs, and lower operating lease costs.

The CompuCom Division reported sales decrease was due primarily to lower services volumes related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors, as well as lower billed service revenue as a result of the malware incident. Service disruptions related to the malware incident have largely been addressed and service has been restored to all customers. The CompuCom Division reported an operating loss of $1 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $3 million operating income in the first quarter of 2020.

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 Plan and its Business Acceleration Program.
