ODP announces third quarter 2021 results

ODP announces third quarter 2021 results

November 9, 2021

The ODP Corporation announced results for the third quarter ended 25 September 2021.

Total reported sales for the third quarter of 2021 were $2.2 billion (€1.89 billion), a decrease of 7% compared to the third quarter of 2020. The ODP Corporation explained that the year-over-year decrease in revenue was largely driven by 160 fewer retail stores in service, as well as lower traffic in its Retail and eCommerce channels in the quarter compared to last year.

Product sales in the third quarter of 2021 were down 8% relative to the prior year period, driven by the lower store count and lower demand for cleaning and PPE categories compared to last year, as well as sourcing challenges for technology products and other categories.

Service revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was up 3% relative to the prior year period, largely related to stronger demand for copy and print services in both BSD and Retail Divisions, as well as for managed print and fulfilment services.

“We’re making meaningful progress on all of our initiatives to unlock shareholder value while remaining true to our low-cost model approach and providing value for our customers,” said Gerry Smith, Chief Executive of The ODP Corporation. “I’m proud of our team for delivering solid operating results against a more demanding industry backdrop due to supply chain challenges and a slower pace of back-to-office trends in the quarter. The investments we’ve made in our private fleet, distribution assets, and diverse third party carrier relationships are helping us mitigate some of the impacts related to the recent industry-wide supply chain disruptions. Additionally, our supplier diversification, combined with our product assortment and flexible pricing strategies, adds to our strength as we continue to navigate these challenges.”

“The pace of back-to-office trends was slower during the quarter due to the well-publicized spread of the Delta variant. However, we’re encouraged by the increase in demand for our core products from companies who have returned to the office, highlighting additional growth opportunities in the quarters ahead. We were also pleased to see more students and teachers returning to the classroom during the back-to-school season, driving year-over-year demand in core school supplies and helping us partially offset lower sales in certain product categories previously in stronger demand last year during the earlier stages of the pandemic.”

“Moving forward, our entire team remains focused on unlocking the power of our asset base and creating greater value for all stakeholders in the future. We’re making progress on our plans for separation, and we are advancing our digital transformation efforts as Varis continues to make progress on its technology platform development and rollout plans, placing us in an excellent position to drive future value in the large and growing digital business commerce market,” he added.
