FOURTH QUARTER GAAP SUMMARY
Fourth quarter fiscal 2020 GAAP results included a 53rd week of operations. GAAP results across all metrics in the quarter were affected by the impact of COVID-19. On a GAAP basis, revenue was $2.7 billion, operating loss was $94 million, net loss attributable to Aramark stockholders was $149 million and diluted loss per share was $0.59. Comparatively, fourth quarter 2019 revenue was $4.0 billion, operating income was $206 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $86 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.34. A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures is included in the Appendix.

FISCAL 2020 SUMMARY
Fiscal 2020 GAAP results also reflected a 53rd week of operations with GAAP results across all metrics affected by the impact of COVID-19. On a GAAP basis, revenue was $12.8 billion, operating loss was $265 million, net loss attributable to Aramark stockholders was $462 million and diluted loss per share was $1.83. Comparatively, fiscal 2019 revenue was $16.2 billion, operating income was $891 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $449 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.78.

Organic Revenue for the year declined 21% compared to fiscal 2019 with underlying growth in the first half of the year more than offset by the impact from COVID-19 throughout the remainder of the year. Adjusted Operating Income of $294 million was similarly affected by COVID-19 that led the Company to implement cost-reduction strategies, including renegotiation of client contracts, adjustment to salaries and other compensation as well as reduction to general corporate expenses.

CAPITAL STRUCTURE AND FREE CASH FLOW
Aramark maintained its focus on efficiency and cost-reduction initiatives that included management of capital expenditures and working capital. In the quarter, the Company generated Cash provided by operating activities of $252 million and Free Cash Flow of $146 million as effective cash management and seasonal cash inflows more than offset net loss from the impact of COVID-19 on operational performance.

In the fiscal year, Cash provided by operating activities totaled $177 million and Free Cash Flow was a use of $188 million driven by the reduction of earnings related to COVID-19. After the seasonal use of cash in the first fiscal quarter associated with Higher Education, the subsequent three quarters collectively generated positive cash flow.

At year-end, the Company had approximately $2.6 billion in cash and availability on its revolving credit facility. Subsequent to the end of the fourth quarter, Aramark repaid $680 million on its revolving credit facility.

DIVIDEND DECLARATION
The Company's Board of Directors approved a quarterly dividend of 11 cents per share of common stock. The first quarter fiscal 2021 dividend will be payable on December 8, 2020, to stockholders of record at the close of business December 1, 2020.

BUSINESS UPDATE
Aramark executed business transformation strategies throughout the year that resulted in ongoing financial flexibility and increased business agility, including:

  • Leadership and organizational changes;

  • Strengthened client and supplier relationships;

  • Renewed entrepreneurial spirit with a growth mindset;

  • Investments in accelerated growth;

  • Effective management of the flexible business model across a diverse portfolio; and

  • Disciplined approach to variable cost structure that provided cash flow resilience.

These timely actions allowed Aramark to adapt quickly in the challenging environment, while preserving the ability to maximize future performance. The Company remains focused on offering safe and hygienic solutions for clients as well as innovation that creates seamless experiences, including cash-less and contact-free payment options. Through the launch of EverSafe™, Aramark is supporting the safe reopening and ongoing management of client locations. The Company also shifted certain production lines to manufacture PPE as well as continued to provide local communities essential meals and health supplies.

2021 OUTLOOK
The Company provides its expectations for organic revenue growth, Adjusted Operating Income and Free Cash Flow on a non-GAAP basis, and does not provide a reconciliation of such forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including adjustments that could be made for the impact of the change in fair value related to certain gasoline and diesel agreements, severance and other charges and the effect of currency translation. The fiscal 2021 outlook reflects management's current assumptions regarding the continued impact of COVID-19 on Aramark and its clients. The extent to which COVID-19 continues to impact business, operations, and financial results, including the duration and magnitude of such impact, will depend on numerous evolving factors that are difficult to accurately predict, including those discussed in the Risk Factors set forth in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In fiscal 2021, Aramark will continue to leverage its resilient operating model, while managing the business with a long-term mindset. The Company believes it is well-positioned to navigate the ever-changing environment with current performance expectations as follows:

  • Organic revenue improvement over the course of the fiscal year;

  • Adjusted Operating Income (AOI) reflecting a drop-through rate of 20%-25% in the first half of the year as a result of disciplined cost management, balanced by ongoing restart costs associated with client reopenings as well as continued investment to support growth opportunities; and

  • Free Cash Flow in a range of $100 million use to $200 million generation, dependent on the pace of recovery and timing of underlying growth. The first quarter will include seasonal outflow associated with Higher Education followed by positive cash flow over the balance of the year. Comparatively, Free Cash Flow was a use of $188 million in Fiscal 2020.

As Aramark did through the COVID-19 challenges in fiscal 2020, the Company will continue executing its growth acceleration strategies throughout fiscal 2021, including initiatives expected to drive base business, increase retention rates and win new clients, while gaining ongoing efficiencies from the Company's fit-for-purpose actions.

"I am extremely encouraged by a number of positive trends across our business and expect ongoing improvement as the year progresses, with Aramark playing a key role in the broader recovery," Zillmer added. "The passion and energy inside the organization fuels my confidence in Aramark's ability to create a promising future for our valued employees, partners and shareholders."

The tax effect for adjusted net (loss) income for our U.S. earnings is calculated using a blended U.S. federal and state tax rate. The tax effect for adjusted net (loss) income in jurisdictions outside the U.S. is calculated at the local country tax rate.

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

Adjusted EPS

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 (loss) income attributable to Aramark stockholders adjusted for interest and other financing costs, net; (benefit) 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 provided by (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 (Loss) Income (including on a constant currency basis), Adjusted Net (Loss) 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 (loss) income, net (loss) income, or (loss) earnings per share, determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Revenue (Organic), Adjusted Operating (Loss) Income, Adjusted Net (Loss) 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.
