NAPERVILLE, Ill., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OfficeMax® Incorporated (NYSE:OMX), a leader in office supplies, technology and services, today announced the results for its fiscal second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Added Saligram, "As we gain traction in executing against our strategic plan, we are evaluating options for capital allocation to enhance shareholder value. As a first step, we are pleased to reinstate a quarterly dividend which reflects the progress we are making, and our confidence in the future of OfficeMax."

Adjusted Results

Contract segment gross profit margin in the second quarter of 2012 was 22.3%, flat with the second quarter of 2011, reflecting lower supply chain costs, offset by a slight decline in customer margins.  Contract segment operating, selling and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales decreased to 19.4% in the second quarter of 2012 from 20.3% in the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to lower payroll expense due to reorganizations and facility closures in 2011, partially offset by higher incentive compensation expense.  Contract segment income was $25.7 million, or 2.9% of sales, in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $17.4 million, or 2.0% of sales, in the second quarter of 2011.

Retail Segment Results

Retail segment sales decreased 5.7% to $723.6 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011, reflecting a same-store sales decrease of 1.8% due to unfavorable foreign currency translation and reduced store transactions.

Retail segment gross profit margin decreased to 29.5% in the second quarter of 2012 from 29.9% in the second quarter of 2011, due to lower gross profit margins in Mexico and higher freight and delivery expense in the U.S., which were partially offset by increased customer margins in the U.S.  Retail segment operating, selling and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales were 29.1% in the second quarter of 2012 and 28.9% in the second quarter of 2011.  The increase was due primarily to higher incentive compensation expense, partially offset by lower credit card processing fees and lower advertising expense.  Retail segment income was $2.8 million, or 0.4% of sales, in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $8.0 million, or 1.0% of sales, in the second quarter of 2011.

OfficeMax ended the second quarter of 2012 with a total of 957 Retail stores, consisting of 872 Retail stores in the U.S. and 85 Retail stores in Mexico.  During the second quarter of 2012, OfficeMax opened two stores in Mexico, and closed two stores in the U.S. and one 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 Retail and Contract segments.  Corporate and Other segment operating, selling and general and administrative expenses was $5.5 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $7.5 million in the second quarter of 2011.  The decrease was primarily due to lower pension expense.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2012, OfficeMax had total debt of $237.4 million, excluding $1,470 million of non-recourse debt related to timber securitization notes that have recourse limited to the timber installment notes receivable and related guarantees.  OfficeMax repaid a $35 million medium-term note at maturity in June 2012.

During the first six months of 2012, OfficeMax generated $82.1 million of cash from operations and invested $32.6 million for capital expenditures.

Outlook

Third Quarter 2012

Based on the current environment, OfficeMax anticipates that total company sales for the third quarter will be approximately flat, to slightly higher than, the third quarter of 2011, including the projected unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation.  Additionally, OfficeMax anticipates that for the third quarter of 2012, adjusted operating income margin will be approximately in line with the 2.3% for the prior year period.  

Full Year 2012

For the full year 2012, OfficeMax anticipates that total company sales will be approximately in line with the prior year, including the projected unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation in 2012 and excluding the additional week in 2011, which generated $86 million in sales.  For the full year 2012, OfficeMax anticipates that adjusted operating income margin will be approximately in line with, to slightly higher than, the 1.7% for the prior year.

"We have continued to streamline and contain costs in a challenging economic environment, which puts us in a better position to take steps to address our capital structure," said Bruce Besanko, EVP, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Administrative Officer of OfficeMax. "We are also continuing to explore ways to simplify our balance sheet and to leverage the value of our operating and non-operating assets."

The company's full year 2012 outlook also includes the following:

  • Capital expenditures of approximately $75-85 million, primarily related to maintenance and investments in IT, ecommerce, and infrastructure improvements and upgrades
  • Depreciation & amortization of approximately $75-85 million
  • Pension expense of approximately $3 million and cash contributions to the frozen pension plans of $21-28 million
  • Interest expense of approximately $69-72 million and interest income of approximately $42-45 million
  • An adjusted effective tax rate approximately in line with the adjusted effective tax rate in the full year 2011
  • Cash flow from operations exceeding capital expenditures
  • A net reduction in Retail store count for the year with up to 35 store closures and 1-2 store openings in the U.S., as well as 8-10 store openings and 1-2 store closures in Mexico

Quarterly Dividend Reinstated

OfficeMax also announced today that its board of directors has reinstated the payment of quarterly cash dividends on the company's common stock, given progress in executing its strategic plan to achieve sustainable, profitable growth. The first quarterly dividend following this decision will be $0.02 per share, or $0.08 per share on an annualized basis, payable on August 31, 2012, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 15, 2012. The company suspended its dividend to shareholders of common stock on December 18, 2008. The board and management are continuing to evaluate additional options for capital allocation.

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 and operating items that are not indicative of our core operating activities such as severance, facility closure and adjustments, and asset impairments.  We also assess the underlying core change in sales excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, the impact of stores closed and opened, and the shift in weeks resulting from our fiscal calendar.  We believe our presentation of financial measures before, or excluding, these items, which are non-GAAP measures, enhances our investors' overall understanding of our recurring 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 preceding tables, we reconcile our non-GAAP financial measures to our reported GAAP financial results for the second quarter and first six months of 2012 and 2011.

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.
