FIRST QUARTER RESULTS*

Consolidated Revenue was $4.3 billion in the quarter, down 0.3% year-over-year, primarily due to approximately six weeks of operations from the Healthcare Technologies business in the prior year before its divestiture in November 2019. Organic Revenue grew 1.6% over the prior year with growth across all segments:

  • FSS United States increased 0.9% due to base business growth primarily in Healthcare and Sports, Leisure and Corrections, partially offset by Education.

  • FSS International grew 3.2% driven by particularly strong performance in South America, despite the impact of social unrest in Chile and the strategic exit of non-core custodial accounts in Europe late last year.

  • Uniform & Career Apparel increased 2.5% from improved pricing and volume with a continued focus on adjacency services.

Difference between GAAP Revenue and Organic Revenue reflects the elimination of currency translation and divestitures.
[1] Q1 2019 GAAP numbers include divested Healthcare Technologies revenue of $44 million. This has been excluded from the calculation of Organic Revenue for comparison purposes.

Operating Income was $254.3 million, down 32% year-over-year primarily due to the prior year divestiture of the Healthcare Technologies business. Adjusted Operating Income was 2% lower on a constant currency basis as follows:

  • FSS United States decreased 11% reflecting the Company's actions to accelerate growth; negative net-new business in Education; increase in medical insurance claim costs; and lower income from possessory interest versus the prior year.

  • FSS International grew 43% largely due to the benefit from the strategic exit of non-core custodial accounts in Europe late last year as well as the timing of incentive-based compensation in the prior year.

  • Uniform & Career Apparel increased 2% resulting from AmeriPride acquisition synergies and efficiencies from operational performance, partially offset by investments for accelerated growth.

GAAP SUMMARY

On a GAAP basis, revenue was $4.3 billion, operating income was $254.3 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $145.8 million, and diluted earnings per share were $0.57. This compared to the first quarter of 2019 where, on a GAAP basis, revenue was $4.3 billion, operating income was $373.4 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $250.7 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.99. First quarter GAAP diluted earnings per share decreased 42% over the prior year principally due to the $157.3 million gain in the prior year period from the sale of the Healthcare Technologies business. A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures is included in the appendix.

CURRENCY

A stronger U.S. dollar decreased revenue by approximately $37.4 million and a $1.2 million unfavorable impact on operating income. Currency had a negligible effect on GAAP and adjusted earnings per share.

CASH FLOW

Net Cash used in operating activities was $(309.5) million compared to $(203.7) million in the prior year. Free Cash Flow was $(405.0) million compared to $(317.1) million in the prior year. The year-over-year decrease was due, in large part, to the timing of annual cash-based incentive compensation payments in the prior year and special employee retirement contributions this year. Cash flow is historically negative in the first quarter due to seasonality in the business.

CAPITAL STRUCTURE

The Company reduced its net debt position by $221.2 million compared to the prior year quarter and maintained approximately $1.1 billion in cash and availability on its revolving credit facility. Total trailing 12-month net debt to covenant adjusted EBITDA was 4.2x at the end of the quarter, unchanged from the prior year.

Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, the Company further strengthened its balance sheet and improved financial flexibility through a $900 million debt refinancing action. As part of this strategy, Aramark raised secured term loans to redeem its 2024 Senior Notes and executed $800 million of interest rate swap contracts at favorable fixed interest rates. The transaction is net leverage neutral, maintains a comparable level of fixed-to-floating debt exposure due to the interest rate hedges and extends the debt maturity by an additional three years to January 2027.

BUSINESS UPDATE

The Company is currently activating strategies to accelerate future revenue growth and unlock the economic potential of the business. These actions include fostering a hospitality culture, aligning leadership and operational resources, as well as initiating targeted investments that will support new account sales efforts and client retention; enhanced product and service offerings; and value-added innovation and technology—all executed with a commitment to drive long-term shareholder value.

"Since joining Aramark a few weeks ago, I have spent time immersing myself in the organization and have already confirmed my initial belief in the growth potential for the business," said Tom Ondrof, Aramark's Chief Financial Officer. "While appreciating the immediate work ahead of us, I am confident that we will execute over time on our actions and position Aramark for sustained excellence. As these strategies are implemented, the Company maintains its near-term financial performance outlook for Fiscal 2020."

Selected Operational and Financial Metrics

Adjusted Revenue (Organic)

Adjusted Revenue (Organic) represents revenue growth, adjusted to eliminate the effects of material divestitures and the impact of currency translation.

Adjusted Operating Income

Adjusted Operating Income represents operating income adjusted to eliminate the change in amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; the impact of the change in fair value related to certain gasoline and diesel agreements; severance and other charges; the effect of divestitures (including the gain on the sale); merger and integration related charges; tax reform related employee reinvestments and other items impacting comparability.

Adjusted Operating Income (Constant Currency)

Adjusted Operating Income (Constant Currency) represents Adjusted Operating Income adjusted to eliminate the impact of currency translation.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted Net Income represents net income attributable to Aramark stockholders adjusted to eliminate the change in amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; the impact of changes in the fair value related to certain gasoline and diesel agreements; severance and other charges; the effect of divestitures (including the gain on the sale); merger and integration related charges; tax reform related employee reinvestments; the tax benefit attributable to the former CEO's equity award exercises; the impact of tax reform and other items impacting comparability, less the tax impact of these adjustments. The tax effect for adjusted net income for our U.S. earnings is calculated using a blended U.S. federal and state tax rate. The tax effect for adjusted net income in jurisdictions outside the U.S. is calculated at the local country tax rate.

Adjusted Net Income (Constant Currency)

Adjusted Net Income (Constant Currency) represents Adjusted Net Income adjusted to eliminate the impact of currency translation.

Adjusted EPS

Adjusted EPS represents Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

Adjusted EPS (Constant Currency)

Adjusted EPS (Constant Currency) represents Adjusted EPS adjusted to eliminate the impact of currency translation.

Covenant Adjusted EBITDA

Covenant Adjusted EBITDA represents net income attributable to Aramark stockholders adjusted for interest and other financing costs, net; provision for income taxes; depreciation and amortization; and certain other items as defined in our debt agreements required in calculating covenant ratios and debt compliance. The Company also uses Net Debt for its ratio to Covenant Adjusted EBITDA, which is calculated as total long-term borrowings less cash and cash equivalents.

Free Cash Flow

Free Cash Flow represents net cash used in operating activities less net purchases of property and equipment and other. Management believes that the presentation of free cash flow provides useful information to investors because it represents a measure of cash flow available for distribution among all the security holders of the Company.

We use Adjusted Revenue (Organic), Adjusted Operating Income (including on a constant currency basis), Adjusted Net Income (including on a constant currency basis), Adjusted EPS (including on a constant currency basis), Covenant Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow as supplemental measures of our operating profitability and to control our cash operating costs. We believe these financial measures are useful to investors because they enable better comparisons of our historical results and allow our investors to evaluate our performance based on the same metrics that we use to evaluate our performance and trends in our results. These financial metrics are not measurements of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Our presentation of these metrics has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. You should not consider these measures as alternatives to revenue, operating income, net income, or earnings per share, determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Revenue (Organic), Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Covenant Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow as presented by us may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies because not all companies use identical calculations.
