Foss, Chairman, President and CEO. “We continue to execute well against our strategy centered on driving quality and innovation to constantly elevate the customer experience.”

Consolidated revenues were $3.7 billion in the quarter, an organic increase of 2% over the prior-year period. Revenue growth was negatively impacted by an estimated $25 million from natural disasters in the quarter. The North America segment was positively impacted by growth across all sectors. The International segment continued to deliver strong, broad-based organic growth, while Uniform sales were up modestly as expected.

Income was negatively impacted by an estimated $17 million from natural disasters in the quarter, with a disproportionate impact in the Uniforms segment related to an asset impairment in Puerto Rico. In North America and International base accounts, the Company drove strong productivity improvements, while continuing to reinvest in technology and capabilities. Uniform income was also impacted by installation costs related to the onboarding of new business.

FOURTH QUARTER SUMMARY

On a GAAP basis, sales were $3.7 billion, operating income was $218 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $113 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.45. This compares to the fourth quarter of 2016 where, on a GAAP basis, sales were $3.5 billion, operating income was $191 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $83 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.33. Fourth quarter GAAP diluted earnings per share increased 36% year-over-year. Tax expense benefited from the results of tax planning efforts and the adoption of new accounting standards related to share-based compensation.

Adjusted net income was $137 million or $0.54 per share, versus adjusted net income of $123 million or $0.49 per share in the fourth quarter of 2016. A weaker U.S. dollar increased sales by approximately $24 million, but had no material impact on operating income or earnings per share.

FISCAL 2017 SUMMARY

On a GAAP basis, sales were $14.6 billion, operating income was $808 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $374 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.49. This compares to fiscal 2016 where, on a GAAP basis, sales were $14.4 billion, operating income was $746 million, net income attributable to Aramark stockholders was $288 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.16. Full-year 2017 GAAP diluted earnings per share increased 28% year-over-year.

Adjusted net income was $489 million or $1.94 per share, versus adjusted net income of $425 million or $1.71 per share in fiscal 2016. A stronger U.S. dollar decreased sales by approximately $72 million, but had no material impact on operating income or earnings per share.

FREE CASH FLOW, CAPITAL STRUCTURE & LIQUIDITY

The Company generated record Free Cash Flow of $520 million in the year, a 36% improvement over prior year. Total trailing 12-month net debt to covenant adjusted EBITDA was 3.5x, a 30 basis point reduction versus the prior year measurement. Financial flexibility remains strong, and at quarter-end the Company had approximately $1.2 billion in cash and availability on its revolving credit facility.

DIVIDEND INCREASE & DECLARATION

In recognition of the Company's improving growth and profitability, the Company's Board of Directors is increasing the regular quarterly dividend to 10.5 cents per share of common stock. The first quarter fiscal 2018 dividend, at the increased rate, will be payable on December 7, 2017, to stockholders of record at the close of business November 27, 2017.

2018 OUTLOOK

The Company provides its expectations for full-year adjusted EPS and full-year 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.

2018 adjusted EPS is expected to be within a range of $2.10 to $2.20 per share, the mid-point of which would represent the fifth consecutive year of double-digit adjusted EPS growth. The Company is also expecting full-year free cash flow of greater than $400 million. This outlook does not reflect the expected impact of the pending acquisitions of Avendra, LLC and AmeriPride Services, which, as previously disclosed, are expected to be dilutive to adjusted EPS in 2018, and accretive to free cash flow.

CONFERENCE CALL SCHEDULED

The Company has scheduled a conference call at 10 a.m. ET today to discuss its earnings. This call and related materials can be heard and reviewed, either live or on a delayed basis, on the Company's web site, www.aramark.com on the investor relations page.

Selected Operational and Financial Metrics

Adjusted Sales (Organic)

Adjusted Sales (Organic) represents sales growth, adjusted to eliminate the effects of material acquisitions and 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 customer relationship intangible assets and depreciation of property and equipment resulting from the going-private transaction in 2007 (the "2007 LBO"); the impact of the change in fair value related to certain gasoline and diesel agreements; severance and other charges; share-based compensation; the effects of material acquisitions and divestitures 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.

Covenant Adjusted EBITDA

Covenant Adjusted EBITDA represents net income attributable to Aramark stockholders adjusted for interest and other financing costs, net; provision (benefit) 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.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted Net Income represents net income attributable to Aramark stockholders adjusted to eliminate the change in amortization of acquisition-related customer relationship intangible assets and depreciation of property and equipment resulting from the 2007 LBO; the impact of changes in the fair value related to certain gasoline and diesel agreements; severance and other charges; share-based compensation; the effects of material acquisitions and divestitures 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.

Free Cash Flow

Free Cash Flow represents net cash provided by operating activities less net purchases of property and equipment, client contract investments 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 Sales (Organic), Adjusted Operating Income (including on a constant currency basis), Covenant Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (including on a constant currency basis), Adjusted EPS 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 sales, operating income, net income, or earnings per share, determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Sales (Organic), Adjusted Operating Income, Covenant Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS 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.
