Stocks in this article: ODP

Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of  office products, services, and solutions formed by the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax in November 2013, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2014.

“During the second quarter, our team executed exceptionally well, which enabled us to deliver merger synergies more quickly than anticipated,” said Roland Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Office Depot, Inc. “We are very pleased with the integration of legacy Office Depot and OfficeMax as we create a culture focused on achieving our critical priorities in the near and long term. As planned, we have completed our analysis of the North America retail store optimization strategy and have continued to make progress on the development of our unique selling proposition. Based on accelerated synergies and improving execution, we have updated our full year 2014 outlook for adjusted operating income to be not less than $200 million, an increase from our prior outlook of not less than $160 million.”

“After completing our store optimization analysis, we continue to expect to close at least 400 locations in the U.S. by the end of 2016, with approximately 165 stores closing in 2014,” added Smith. “Further, we have increased the expected annual run-rate synergies from this initiative to at least $100 million by the end of 2016, from our prior outlook of at least $75 million.”

Consolidated Results

Office Depot, Inc. results for the second quarter and year-to-date June 2014 include the financial results from OfficeMax, whereas prior year reported results include only the financial results of Office Depot.

Total reported sales for the second quarter of 2014 were $3.8 billion compared to $2.4 billion in the second quarter of 2013, reflecting the inclusion of OfficeMax sales in 2014, and were 2% lower than combined pro forma sales of $3.9 billion in the second quarter of the prior year.
