NAPERVILLE, Ill., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OfficeMax® Incorporated (NYSE: OMX), a leading provider of office and facility supplies, technology and services, today announced the results for its fiscal third quarter ended September 28, 2013. 

Consolidated Results

Reported Results

Total sales were $1,664.9 million in the third quarter of 2013, as compared to $1,744.6 in the third quarter of 2012.  For the third quarter of 2013, OfficeMax reported operating income of $66.8 million compared to operating income of $33.5 million in the third quarter of 2012; and net income available to OfficeMax common shareholders of $30.4 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared to $433.0 million, or $4.92 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.  

Adjusted Results

"In the third quarter, we continued to experience soft sales overall and weak margins within our Contract business, due to a competitive global environment," said Ravi Saligram, President and CEO of OfficeMax.  "However, through our strategic initiatives, we continue to lay the foundation for evolving our business model.  We believe that these initiatives, in combination with the anticipated annual cost synergies from our pending merger with Office Depot, will position the combined company well for success."

*Adjusted sales, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted net income available to OfficeMax common shareholders, and adjusted diluted income per share are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effect of certain items and charges described in the footnotes to the accompanying financial statements.  A reconciliation to the company's GAAP financial results is included in this press release.

Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, the impact of stores closed and opened, and the difference in the number of business days in the quarter compared to the same quarter last year, adjusted sales for the third quarter of 2013 decreased 3.4% from the third quarter of 2012. 

For the third quarter of 2013, adjusted operating income was $28.4 million, or 1.7% of sales, compared to $42.7 million, or 2.4% of sales, in the third quarter of 2012; and adjusted net income available to OfficeMax common shareholders was $13.6 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $22.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012. 

The third quarter of 2013 adjusted figures in the preceding paragraph exclude income of $47.7 million for the recognition of deferred gains related to OfficeMax's investment in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. and dividend income of $25.4 million related to OfficeMax's voting securities held in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. reflected in the Corporate and Other segment, as well as charges of $30.5 million in our Corporate and Other segment for certain costs related to our pending merger with Office Depot, and charges of $4.1 million associated with store closures in the U.S.  The third quarter of 2012 adjusted figures exclude a non-cash gain of $670.8 million related to the extinguishment of non-recourse debt guaranteed by Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc. and $11.4 million of expenses to impair fixed assets associated with certain stores and to record a change in the estimated lease obligation of a previously closed store in the U.S.  The third quarter of 2012 adjusted figures also exclude $2.2 million of dividend income from the investment in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. Series A Units, which were subsequently redeemed in the first quarter of 2013.  The net effect of these items increased net income by $16.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013, and increased net income by $410.7 million, or $4.67 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.

Contract Segment Results

Contract segment sales decreased 4.4% compared to the prior year period to $841.9 million in the third quarter of 2013.  This decrease reflected a U.S. Contract operations sales decrease of 3.6% and an international Contract operations sales decrease of 6.5% in U.S. dollars (a decrease of 0.8% on a local currency basis).  The U.S. Contract performance reflects weaker sales to existing corporate accounts.

Contract segment gross profit margin decreased to 20.7% in the third quarter of 2013 from 22.8% in the third quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting lower customer margins in U.S. Contract and International Contract.  Contract segment operating, selling and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales decreased to 19.6% in the third quarter of 2013 from 19.8% in the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to lower incentive compensation expense and net favorable legal and sales tax settlements, partially offset by continued investments in growth and profitability initiatives.  Contract segment income was $8.8 million, or 1.0% of sales, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $26.5 million, or 3.0% of sales, in the third quarter of 2012.

Retail Segment Results

Retail segment sales in the third quarter of 2013 decreased 4.7% to $823.0 million compared to the third quarter of 2012, reflecting a same-store sales decrease on a local currency basis of 2.8% primarily due to decreased traffic and lower technology product category sales.  The decrease reflected a U.S. Retail operations same-store sales decrease of 2.8%, and a Mexico retail operations same-store sales decrease of 2.2% on a local currency basis.

Retail segment gross profit margin decreased to 29.6% in the third quarter of 2013 from 30.0% in the third quarter of 2012 primarily reflecting an expiration of favorable purchase accounting for leases as of the end of fiscal 2012, and deleveraging of occupancy costs due to lower sales.  Retail segment operating, selling and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales decreased to 26.4% in the third quarter of 2013 from 26.8% in the third quarter of 2012, primarily due to favorable sales and property tax settlements, lower store payroll expense, and reduced advertising expenses.  Retail segment income was $26.2 million, or 3.2% of sales, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $27.7 million, or 3.2% of sales, in the third quarter of 2012. 

OfficeMax ended the third quarter of 2013 with a total of 921 Retail stores, consisting of 828 Retail stores in the U.S. and 93 Retail stores in Mexico.  During the third quarter of 2013, OfficeMax closed 15 stores and opened one store in the U.S.; and opened three stores in Mexico.  

Corporate and Other Segment Results

The Corporate and Other segment includes support staff services and certain other expenses that are not fully allocated to the Contract and Retail segments.  Corporate and Other segment operating, selling and general and administrative expenses were $6.7 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $11.5 million in the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to favorable sales tax settlements and cost reductions in the third quarter of 2013. 

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of September 28, 2013, OfficeMax had total debt of $232.4 million, excluding $735.0 million of non-recourse debt related to the Wells Fargo-backed timber notes. 

During the first nine months of 2013, OfficeMax generated $85.2 million of cash flow from operations and invested $65.3 million in capital expenditures. In July of 2013, OfficeMax received a $71.8 million distribution from Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. of which $25.4 million was recorded as dividend income and included in cash provided by operations, and the remaining $46.4 million was recorded as a reduction in the carrying value of the Boise investment and classified as cash provided by investment.

In July of 2013, OfficeMax paid a special dividend to common shareholders of $130.7 million in cash.

Merger Update

On February 20, 2013, OfficeMax and Office Depot announced their entry into an agreement to combine their companies in a merger of equals.

Note:  Management evaluates the segments' performances using segment income which is based on operating income  after eliminating the effect of certain legacy operating items such as income associated with our investment in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. and certain other operating items such as store closure costs, costs related to our pending merger with Office Depot and severance charges, all of which are not indicative of our core operations.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP Measures to GAAP Measures

In addition to assessing our operating performance as reported under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we evaluate our results of operations before non-operating legacy items, certain legacy operating items such as income associated with our Boise Investment, and certain other operating items such as store closure costs, costs related to our pending merger with Office Depot, and severance charges, all of which are not indicative of our core operations. We believe our presentation of financial measures before, or excluding, these items, which are non-GAAP measures, enhances our investors' overall understanding of our operational performance and provides useful information to both investors and management to evaluate the ongoing operations and prospects of OfficeMax by providing better comparisons. Whenever we use non-GAAP financial measures, we designate these measures as "adjusted" and provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. In the following tables, we reconcile our non-GAAP financial measures to our reported GAAP financial results.

Although we believe the non-GAAP financial measures enhance an investor's understanding of our performance, our management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be consistent with the presentation of similar companies in our industry. However, we present such non-GAAP financial measures in reporting our financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate our operating results in a manner that focuses on what we believe to be our ongoing business operations.

(a)  The third quarter of 2012 includes $2.2 million of dividend income related to OfficeMax's non-voting securities held in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C.  The effect of the dividends increased net income by $1.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.


(b)  The third quarter of 2013 includes income of $47.7 million in our Corporate segment associated with our investment in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. for the partial recognition of the deferred gain from the 2004 sale of our paper, forest products and timberland assets and dividend income of $25.4 million from the voting securities held in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. The third quarter of 2013 also includes charges of $30.5 million in our Corporate segment for certain costs related to our pending merger with Office Depot, portions of which may not be deductible for tax purposes, and charges recorded in our Retail segment related to store closures in the U.S. of $4.1 million. The net effect of the these items increased net income by $16.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013. The third quarter of 2012 includes a charge to impair fixed assets associated with certain Retail stores in the U.S. and a charge related to a change in the estimated lease obligation of a closed domestic store. These items totaled $11.4 million and reduced income available to OfficeMax common shareholders by $7.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.


(c)  The third quarter of 2012 includes a non-cash gain of $670.8 million related to an agreement that legally extinguished the Company's non-recourse debt guaranteed by Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.  The gain increased net income available to OfficeMax common shareholders by $416.4 million, or $4.73 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.

(a)  The first nine months of 2013 and 2012 include $1.0 million and $6.3 million, respectively, of dividend income related to OfficeMax's non-voting securities held in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C.  The dividend income ceased in the first quarter of 2013 upon redemption of those securities, therefore no additional dividend income was recorded in the second and third quarters of 2013.  The effect of the dividends increased net income by $0.6 million and $3.8 million, or $0.01 and $0.05 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2013 and 2012, respectively.


(b) The first nine months of 2013 include income of $137.5 million in our Corporate segment associated with our investment in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. for the partial recognition of the deferred gain, net of fees, from the 2004 sale of our paper, forest products and timberland assets and dividend income of $25.4 million from the voting securities held in Boise Cascade Holdings, L.L.C. The first nine months of 2013 also include charges of $49.1 million in our Corporate segment for certain costs related to our pending merger with Office Depot, portions of which may not be deductible for tax purposes, $4.5 million of severance charges primarily related to reorganizations in our Contract segment sales and supply chain operations, and charges recorded in our Retail segment related to store closures in the U.S. of $4.1 million.  The first nine months of 2012 include a non-cash charge of $9.8 million to impair fixed assets associated with certain stores in the U.S. and charges of $26.9 million related to store closures in the U.S.  The net effect of these items increased net income by $50.6 million, or $0.57 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2013 and reduced net income by $22.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2012.


(c)  The first nine months of 2012 include a non-cash gain of $670.8 million related to an agreement that legally extinguished the Company's non-recourse debt guaranteed by Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.  The gain increased net income available to OfficeMax common shareholders by $416.4 or $4.73 per diluted share.
