Cintas Corporation Announces Fiscal 2015 Third Quarter Results


March 18, 2015
By Business Wire News

CINCINNATI

Cintas Corporation (Nasdaq: CTAS) today reported revenue for its third quarter ended February 28, 2015, of $1.11 billion, which represented organic growth of 7.5%. Organic growth adjusts for the impacts of acquisitions, foreign currency and the contribution of the Document Shredding business to Shred-it International Inc. (“Shred-it”). Fiscal 2015 third quarter revenue was approximately the same total as last year’s third quarter. This year’s third quarter revenue does not include any Document Shredding revenue as a result of the transaction with Shred-it (the “Shred-it Transaction”) that closed on April 30, 2014, whereas last year’s third quarter does.

Operating income for the fiscal 2015 third quarter was $173.6 million, an increase of 16.1% compared to last fiscal year’s third quarter. Net income for the fiscal 2015 third quarter was $94.9 million, and earnings per diluted share (EPS) for the fiscal 2015 third quarter were $0.80. Fiscal 2015 third quarter net income and EPS were negatively impacted by $6.8 million and $0.06, respectively, due to the recording of a net loss on Cintas’ investment in Shred-it. Shred-it results in the period were adversely affected by integration costs and foreign currency exchange due to the weakened Canadian dollar. Fiscal 2015 third quarter EPS from discontinued operations was $0.01. Fiscal 2015 third quarter EPS, excluding the Shred-it impact and discontinued operations was $0.85. Operating income, net income and EPS are discussed in more detail in the Fiscal 2015 Third Quarter Results section below.

“Our third quarter results reflect a continuation of the fiscal 2015 game plan,” said Scott D. Farmer, Cintas’ Chief Executive Officer. “Our employees, whom we call partners, continue to execute at high levels. In addition to the solid results for the quarter, we are pleased to report that we purchased 3.2 million shares of our common stock during the third quarter, demonstrating our commitment to provide shareholder value.” The shares purchased during the third quarter were done so at an aggregate cost of $250.8 million, and this concluded the $500 million share buyback program authorized by Cintas’ Board of Directors in July 2013. As announced on January 13, 2015, the Board of Directors approved an additional $500 million share buyback program, and that entire program remains available as of March 18, 2015.

FISCAL 2015 THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

The table below labeled “3rd Quarter Revenue Results” presents third quarter revenue for Cintas, reflecting the second quarter sale of the Document Storage and Imaging business and presented to exclude fiscal 2014 third quarter Document Shredding revenue. Effective April 30, 2014, Cintas entered into a partnership transaction with the shareholders of Shred-it to combine Cintas’ Document Shredding business with Shred-it’s Document Shredding business. Subsequent to the closing of the Shred-it Transaction, Cintas no longer includes Document Shredding revenue in its reported revenue. As a result, we believe that revenue excluding Document Shredding revenue is more representative of the ongoing revenue of Cintas.

Note 1 –     Both fiscal 2015 and 2014 third quarter revenue reflect the classification of the Document Storage and Imaging business to discontinued operations, and as a result, no revenue amounts are included in either period.
 
Note 2 – Organic growth reflects the revenue growth for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 when adjusting for the impact of acquisitions, foreign currency and the Shred-it Transaction, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2014.
 
Note 3 – As a result of the Shred-it Transaction, Cintas no longer includes Document Shredding revenue in its reported revenue. However, the fiscal 2014 third quarter Document Shredding revenue must continue to be included in the reported fiscal 2014 third quarter revenue in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).
 

The tables below show revenue, gross margin, operating income, net income from continuing operations and EPS from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2014, as reported and as adjusted. The adjustments between results as reported and as adjusted are explained below. We present revenue, gross margin, operating income, net income from continuing operations and EPS from continuing operations, as adjusted, because we believe they are more representative of the ongoing performance of Cintas.

Note 1 –     The “As reported” figures for both fiscal 2015 and 2014 third quarters reflect the change in classification of the Document Storage and Imaging business to discontinued operations within the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Income.
 
Note 2 – As a result of the Shred-it Transaction, Cintas no longer includes Document Shredding results in its reported revenue, gross margin and operating income. During fiscal 2015, Cintas will recognize its share of the Shred-it partnership income, net of tax, in net income from continuing operations and EPS from continuing operations. Cintas’ share of the fiscal 2015 third quarter Shred-it net income was $(6.8) million. In accordance with GAAP, the fiscal 2014 third quarter Document Shredding revenue, gross margin, operating income, net income from continuing operations and EPS from continuing operations results must continue to be included in the reported fiscal 2014 results because of Cintas’ continuing ownership in Shred-it.
 

Fiscal 2015 third quarter gross margin was $475.3 million, or 42.9% of third quarter revenue, compared to the fiscal 2014 third quarter gross margin, as adjusted, of $436.4 million, or 42.1% of last year’s third quarter revenue. Fiscal 2015 gross margin increased 8.9% compared to last year’s adjusted third quarter margin.

Fiscal 2015 third quarter operating income was $173.6 million, or 15.7% of third quarter revenue, compared to the fiscal 2014 third quarter operating income, as adjusted, of $148.3 million, or 14.3% of last year’s third quarter revenue. Fiscal 2015 operating income increased 17.1% compared to last year’s adjusted third quarter income.

Fiscal 2015 third quarter net income from continuing operations and EPS from continuing operations, as adjusted, increased over the fiscal 2014 third quarter by 20.2% and 25.0%, respectively.

FISCAL YEAR 2015 GUIDANCE

Mr. Farmer concluded, “We are updating our fiscal 2015 guidance based on our third quarter results. We expect fiscal 2015 revenue to be in the range of $4.46 billion to $4.49 billion, and fiscal 2015 EPS to be in the range of $3.55 to $3.58. This guidance assumes no EPS impact in the fourth quarter from the partnership with Shred-it due to continued integration and transition expenses. This guidance also assumes no deterioration in the U.S. economy and does not consider any additional share buybacks.”

As mentioned earlier in this press release, subsequent to the closing of the Shred-it Transaction on April 30, 2014, we no longer include Document Shredding revenue in our reported revenue. The table below shows a comparison of fiscal 2014 revenue to our updated 2015 revenue guidance.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Regulation G Disclosure

The press release contains non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company provides additional measures of revenue and related growth, gross margin, operating income, net income, earnings per diluted share, and cash flow. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are appropriate to enhance understanding of its past performance as well as prospects for future performance. Reconciliations of the differences between these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are shown in the tables within the narrative of the press release or below.
