Third Quarter Overview

  • Net income per share was $0.74 in the current quarter, including $0.26 per share of expense related to the impairment of seller notes receivable relating to the company's prior year sale of its software service subsidiary and the previously-announced repositioning actions (together the "third quarter charges"). Adjusted earnings per share were $1.00(1) compared to earnings per share of $1.03(2) in the prior year quarter.
  • Cash flow provided by operating activities was $183.7 million in the first nine months of 2015, up from $93.7 million in the prior year.
  • Sales decreased 2.0% to $1.39 billion when compared to the third quarter of last year.
  • Gross margin was $225.1 million, or 16.2% of sales, up from $216.7 million(2) or 15.3%(2) of sales, in the prior year quarter.
  • Operating expenses were $172.2 million, including $13.5 million related to the third quarter charges. Adjusted operating expenses(1) were $158.6 million, or 11.4% of sales, up from $148.8 million(2) or 10.5%(2) of sales in the prior year quarter.

"In the third quarter we achieved solid financial performance, generating strong operating cash flows in the face of challenging market conditions," said Robert B. Aiken, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Essendant.  "Our team successfully executed actions we set out to achieve at the beginning of the year, including selling the Mexico business, transitioning the first two of our facilities to a common operating and IT platform, and making solid progress on our restructuring," continued Aiken.  "Going forward we will take more aggressive actions to expand earnings by driving profitable sales growth and reducing costs.  Among these efforts, we expect to implement additional cost reductions in the fourth quarter. Taken together, these actions will support our goal of achieving high single-digit EPS growth, beginning in 2016."

Third Quarter Performance

Third quarter 2015 sales decreased 2.0%. Excluding the impact of our acquisitions, sales were down 7.7%. The current quarter gross margin was $225.1 million, up from $216.7 million(2) in the third quarter of 2014.

  • Sales of industrial supplies increased 37.3% to $223.5 million, including $81.2 million of incremental sales from the MEDCO and Nestor acquisitions made in October of 2014 and August of 2015, respectively. Weakness in the energy and industrial sectors drove a $20.5 million sales decline in the organic industrial business. Janitorial and breakroom supplies sales decreased 1.8% to $375.5 million from $382.3 million. Total office products sales were down 9.5% to $752.0 million from $830.5 million on lower cut-sheet paper sales and exiting non-strategic business in Mexico.
  • The gross margin rate of 16.2% benefitted 17 basis points from acquisitions. Excluding acquisitions, gross margin rate improved 75 basis points, driven by higher product margin, lower freight expenses, and favorable inflation related inventory adjustments. Gross margin was $225.1 million, an increase of $8.4 million from the prior year quarter, with an incremental $15.4 million from acquisitions.
  • Operating expenses were $172.2 million, including $13.5 million related to the third quarter charges. Adjusted operating expenses(1) were $158.6 million or 11.4% of sales, compared to $148.8 million(2), or 10.5%(2) of sales, in the prior year quarter. The $9.8 million increase included $11.5 million of incremental expenses from acquisitions, partially offset by restructuring benefits and expense control.
  • Operating income was $53.0 million, including $13.5 million of expense related to the third quarter charges. Adjusted operating income(1) was $66.5 million, or 4.8% of sales, compared to $67.9 million(2), or 4.8%(2) of sales, in the prior year quarter.
  • Net income was $27.7 million, including $10.0 million of after-tax costs related to the third quarter charges. Earnings per share were $0.74, including $0.26 of expense related to the third quarter charges. Adjusted net income(1) was $37.7 million, compared to $40.2 million(2) in the prior year quarter. Adjusted earnings per share were $1.00(1), compared to $1.03(2) in the third quarter of 2014.

Nine-Month Performance

Sales in the first nine months of 2015 increased 1.8%, driven by acquisitions. The current period gross margin was $635.7 million, up from $593.1 million(2) in the first nine months of 2014.

  • Sales of industrial supplies increased 47.0% to $647.7 million, including $258.1 million of incremental sales from the CPO and MEDCO acquisitions made in 2014 and the Nestor acquisition made in August 2015. Weakness in the energy and industrial sectors drove a $51.1 million sales decline in the organic industrial business. Janitorial and breakroom supplies sales increased 3.0% to $1.10 billion from $1.07 billion. Total office products sales were down 6.8% to $2.20 billion from $2.36 billion driven by lower cut-sheet paper sales and exiting non-strategic business in Mexico.
  • The gross margin rate of 15.6% benefitted 30 basis points from acquisitions. Excluding acquisitions, gross margin rate improved due to a favorable product margin, driven by favorable product mix and purchase driven inventory allowances. Gross margin was $635.7 million, an increase of $42.5 million from the first nine months of last year, with an incremental $52.1 million from acquisitions.
  • Operating expenses were $526.7 million, including $45.7 million related to the impairment of seller notes and the previously-announced repositioning actions (together the "2015 charges"). Adjusted operating expenses(1) were $480.9 million or 11.8% of sales, compared to $438.5 million(2), or 11.0%(2) of sales, in the prior year period. The $42.4 million increase included $40.9 million of incremental expenses from acquisitions.
  • Operating income was $109.0 million, including $45.7 million of expense related to the 2015 charges. Adjusted operating income(1) was $154.7 million, or 3.8% of sales, compared to $154.6 million(2), or 3.9%(2) of sales, in the prior year period.
  • Net income was $51.5 million, including $34.9 million of after-tax costs related to the 2015 charges. Earnings per share for the first nine months of 2015 were $1.35, including $0.91 of expense related to the 2015 charges. Adjusted net income(1) was $86.3 million, compared to $90.0 million(2) in the prior year period. Adjusted earnings per share were $2.26(1), compared to $2.29(2) earnings per share in the first nine months of 2014.

Cash Flow, Debt Trends and Share Repurchases

Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2015 was $183.7 million, compared with $93.7 million for the same period last year. The 96% improvement over the prior year was driven by market factors and the company's commitment to effectively manage its working capital. Cash flow used in investing activities totaled $57.8 million in 2015, compared with $41.3 million in the same period last year. The company estimates the 2015 full-year total capital expenditures to be $30 million to $35 million, excluding acquisitions.

The company has approximately $1.0 billion of total committed debt capacity.  As of September 30, 2015, the company had total debt outstanding of $666.2, million compared with $542.7 million as of September 30, 2014.  Debt-to-total capitalization increased to 44.5% at September 30, 2015 from 39.0% at September 30, 2014 due to acquisitions.  In the first nine months of 2015, the company paid $55.7 million to repurchase approximately 1.5 million shares and paid cash dividends of $16.0 million to common shareholders.  

Update on Previously Announced Repositioning Actions

As previously announced in February, the company is taking decisive actions to reposition the business, provide enhanced customer service, and create sustained long-term success. The costs and benefits of these actions are expected to be as follows:

  • Incremental $13.0 million cost in 2015 to move to a common operating and information technology platform for the office products, janitorial and breakroom categories that will simplify customer experience and deliver operating cost savings. In the first nine months of 2015 the cost impact was $8.2 million related to this project and includes a $4.0 million restatement of inventory values. Additionally, during the first nine-months of 2015 the company recorded pre-tax charges relating to the following:
    • Workforce reductions and facility consolidations of $7.5 million. Additional facility actions will occur later in 2015 for a full year pre-tax charge of approximately $9.0 million;
    • Loss and related expenses, totaling $17.0 million, attributed to the sale of the Mexico business, which closed in September 2015;
    • Non-cash impairment of intangibles and accelerated amortization related to rebranding totaling $11.5 million. The company expects a total charge of $12.0 million for the full year.
  • Total benefits from the above actions are expected to be:
    • Savings of $6.0 million in 2015 and $10.0 million annually beginning in 2016 from the workforce reductions and facility consolidations;
    • $5.0 million to $10.0 million beginning in the second half of 2016, and $15.0 million to $20.0 million on an annual basis thereafter from the transition to a common operating and IT platform.

Fourth Quarter Cost Initiative

The company remains committed to its strategy and has executed well on its priorities. However, additional steps must be taken to reduce cost through management de-layering in order to achieve broader functional alignment of the organization, and to counteract headwinds in the industrial and energy markets. In the fourth quarter the company plans to:

  • Implement new workforce reductions as it transitions to a channel-based organization more closely aligned with its customers. As the company finalizes its plan, additional information will be provided in the fourth quarter regarding the cost and expected benefit of this action;
  • Re-invest a portion of the expected savings to fund bringing additional businesses onto the common operating and IT platform.

The company views these actions to be critical to driving its goal of achieving high-single digit EPS growth beginning in 2016.

Note: Adjusted Operating Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share in the third quarter of 2015 exclude the effects of a $0.2 million facility consolidation charge, $0.5 million accelerated amortization related to rebranding, $10.7 million impairment of certain notes receivable relating to the company's prior year sale of its software service subsidiary, and $2.1 million attributable to a sale of a business and the related costs to sell. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles require that the effects of these items be included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.  Management believes that excluding these items is an appropriate comparison of its ongoing operating results and to the results of the prior year. It is helpful to provide readers of its financial statements with a reconciliation of these items to its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income reported in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Note: Adjusted Operating Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share in the first nine months of 2015 exclude the effects of a $6.5 million workforce reduction and facility consolidation, $11.5 million intangible asset charge and accelerated amortization related to rebranding, $10.7 million impairment of certain notes receivable relating to the company's prior year sale of its software service subsidiary, and $17.0 million attributable to a sale of a business and the related costs to sell. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles require that the effects of these items be included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.  Management believes that excluding these items is an appropriate comparison of its ongoing operating results and to the results of the prior year. It is helpful to provide readers of its financial statements with a reconciliation of these items to its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income reported in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

 

Essendant Inc. and Subsidiaries

Reconciliation of Restated Financial Statements


In the third quarter of 2015, the Company changed its method of accounting for certain inventory in one of its operating segments to the Last-In-First-Out ("LIFO") method from the First-In-First-Out ("FIFO") accounting method which required retrospectively application to prior year financial statements. Also during the third quarter of 2015, the Company adopted ASU 2015-03 Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs.  This guidance requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the related debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The Company has elected to early adopt the guidance as of September 30, 2015 and has retrospectively applied the changes to all periods presented for the third quarter 2015. The below tables detail the changes to the prior year periods presented in this earnings release.
