SECOND QUARTER RESULTS*

Consolidated Revenue was $3.7 billion in the quarter, down 6.7% year-over-year, with underlying growth in the overall business more than offset by an estimated $325 million impact on business operations related to COVID-19. Organic Revenue, which adjusts for currency impact, declined 5.4% in the quarter.

  • FSS United States experienced interruption primarily within Education, Business & Industry and Sports & Leisure, although most clients maintained operations on a limited basis that included alternative meal programs and services to essential businesses. Healthcare, Facilities and Corrections had relatively stable performance with increased demand across many locations.
  • FSS International, with its diverse verticals across 18 countries, managed through different stages of the impact from COVID-19 as Germany and Spain were particularly affected due to government imposed shutdowns. China operations have largely recovered and been awarded new contracts based on the business' response to COVID-19 and commitment to client services.
  • Uniform & Career Apparel service continued for essential businesses with a heightened focus on safe and hygienic needs.

Difference between GAAP Revenue and Organic Revenue reflects the elimination of currency translation.

Operating Loss of $98 million was primarily due to the pre-tax non-cash goodwill impairment of $199 million in FSS International as well as the impact from COVID-19. Adjusted Operating Income was $164 million, down 30%, due to an estimated $70 million unfavorable impact on business operations related to COVID-19, that included lower personnel costs and equity-based compensation expense.

  • FSS United States performance was impacted by COVID-19—especially in Education, Business & Industry, and Sports & Leisure; negative net-new business in Education; as well as planned targeted reinvestment early in the quarter to accelerate longer-term growth that included additional resources for new account sales and client retention efforts.
  • FSS International was at the forefront of the virus, specifically in China early in the quarter, with performance then affected by government imposed shutdowns in Europe and Canada, where labor costs tend to be less variable in the near-term due to country-specific labor laws and regulations.
  • Uniform & Career Apparel was impacted by COVID-19 in addition to personnel costs related to sales growth initiatives, partially offset by solid underlying new business growth and synergies from the AmeriPride acquisition.
  • Corporate results reflected a reduction in equity-based compensation expectations resulting from the impact of COVID-19.

GAAP SUMMARY

GAAP metrics for operating income (loss), net income (loss) attributable to Aramark stockholders, and diluted earnings per share were impacted by a pre-tax non-cash impairment charge of $198.6 million based on quantitative testing related to the recoverability of goodwill. This particular impairment was specifically related to the reporting unit within the FSS International segment that had been identified as having undergone additional impairment testing in the 2019 Form 10-K. The impairment was a result of a change in various factors including the discount rate used in the testing as well as the near-term growth outlook of the reporting unit pre-COVID-19. The Company determined that goodwill was not impaired for any other reporting units as their fair values substantially exceeded their respective carrying amounts.

On a GAAP basis, revenue was $3.7 billion, operating loss was $97.7 million, net loss attributable to Aramark stockholders was $202.3 million, and diluted earnings per share were $(0.80). This compared to the second quarter of 2019 where, on a GAAP basis, revenue was $4.0 billion, operating income was $122.8 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $29.4 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.12. Second quarter GAAP results across all metrics were affected by the impact of COVID-19. A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures is included in the appendix.

CURRENCY

A stronger U.S. dollar decreased revenue by approximately $50.7 million and resulted in a $0.3 million unfavorable impact on operating income. Currency had a negligible effect on GAAP and adjusted earnings per share.

CASH FLOW

Net Cash (used in) provided by operating activities was $(91.6) million year-to-date compared to $89.0 million in the prior year period. Through six months, Free Cash Flow was $(297.0) million compared to $(133.9) million in the prior year period. Cash flow is historically negative in the first half due to seasonality of the business. The year-over-year decrease was due, in large part, to lower net income as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on operational performance as well as its effect on working capital that included lower purchasing levels. The Company expects to efficiently manage the impact of COVID-19 on future cash flow.

CAPITAL STRUCTURE

Aramark has operated with a particular focus to adapt the Company to the current environment by providing additional financial flexibility and further bolstering an already strong capital structure position. Accordingly, the Company increased cash availability in April 2020 and created greater covenant flexibility with an amendment to its credit agreement by taking the following proactive actions:

  • Fully drew down the $1 billion revolving credit facility.
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter,
    • Issued $1.5 billion in Senior Unsecured Notes due 2025.
    • Amended its credit facility to suspend the secured debt ratio covenant requirement for four quarters from the September 2020 quarter to the June 2021 quarter—in order to prevent the effects of COVID-19 from distorting the covenant calculations.

Aramark is highly focused on disciplined management of working capital and capital expenditures while still pursuing long-term growth opportunities. The majority of the Company's capital expenditures are discretionary or can be deferred, as appropriate.

DIVIDEND DECLARATION

The Company's Board of Directors approved a quarterly dividend of 11 cents per share of common stock. The dividend will be payable on June 2, 2020 to stockholders of record at the close of business on May 19, 2020.

BUSINESS UPDATE

Aramark's performance reflected the benefits of its highly diversified business—extensive offerings, sectors, geographies, and client portfolio—and low fixed cost, low asset intensity operating model. The Company is taking timely actions to adapt to the current environment created by COVID-19 while preserving the ability to maximize future performance. These proactive steps work to bolster its financial position, ensure the safety of its clients and their customers, and foster a hospitality spirit as a strong corporate citizen serving multiple communities.

Given the rapidly changing market dynamics, Aramark has determined to withdraw its previously stated outlook for the 2020 fiscal year.

As referenced in the preliminary second quarter results released on April 22nd, Aramark initiated cost-reduction strategies at the end of the second quarter—including renegotiation of client contracts, salary and other compensation adjustments and reductions to corporate expenses—that are expected to result in a near-term operating income drop through of approximately 20% of any corresponding revenue decline. The Company has additional flexibility to drive drop through even lower to approximately 15% as future market conditions warrant.

Aramark will continue to operate the business with a long-term perspective that will include pursuing opportunities to win new business, retain clients or extend contracts by providing exceptional service.

The Company is in the process of determining potential future benefits from the 2020 CARES Act stimulus program and the various provisions that will be adopted in the coming quarters. This may include employee retention tax credits, payroll tax deferral, tax credits, NOL carryback modifications and other stimulus measures.

Aramark believes it will be a key enabler in the broader recovery, preparing to perform strongly with expectations that there will be increased demand and value attributable to experienced service providers that focus on safety and hygiene. The Company has the ability to quickly scale offerings to meet evolving client needs and will be well-positioned to pursue growth prospects as they emerge.

“As we look to the future, the health and safety of our employees and everyone we serve remain paramount. With that in mind, we have developed comprehensive re-opening plans, including new models for service delivery and customer engagement, all designed to ensure the safest, most hygienic environments,” Zillmer added. “I am very encouraged about the opportunities ahead of us.”

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 (loss) 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; asset impairments; 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 (loss) 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; asset impairments; tax reform related employee reinvestments; the tax benefit attributable to the former CEO's equity award exercises; the tax impact related to shareholder contribution; the impact of tax legislation 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) provided by 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 (loss), net income (loss), or earnings (loss) 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.
