Project Summit

Iron Mountain also announced today a transformation program – Project Summit – designed to accelerate execution of Iron Mountain's stated strategy.

Project Summit will focus on three key areas:

  • Simplifying Global Structure: Iron Mountain is combining its Records and Information (RIM) operations under one global leader, whilst also eliminating unnecessary work and rebalancing resources to sharpen its focus on higher growth areas. These actions are expected to result in a simplified organizational structure, allowing Iron Mountain to improve efficiency and accelerate decision making across the organization.
  • Streamlining Managerial Structure for the Future: By simplifying its global structure, Iron Mountain will condense the number of layers and reporting levels, which is expected to reduce the number of VP level and above positions by approximately 45%.The total program is expected to reduce Iron Mountain's total managerial and administrative workforce by 700 positions over the next two years. This will help to create a more dynamic, agile organization that will be better positioned to make faster decisions and execute its strategy in key growth areas, such as the continued expansion of its data center footprint.
  • Enhancing Customer Experience: Iron Mountain will leverage its global and regional customer-facing resources across RIM product lines to provide customers with a more integrated experience and leverage technology to modernize processes for better alignment between new digital solutions and Iron Mountain's core business.

"Project Summit is expected to better position us to execute on our strategy by evolving how we work as an organization, increasing our pace and efficiency, and bringing us closer to our customers," continued Mr. Meaney. "By simplifying our managerial structure, we will be able to focus on our highest potential opportunities and optimize resources, whilst creating a more nimble organization that can embrace and execute change faster. We also expect to achieve significant Adjusted EBITDA benefits, which will allow us to fund more of our growth investments from internally generated cash flows whilst enabling us to reduce leverage over time. In addition, by aligning our investments to the highest potential opportunities and creating solutions that enhance the customer experience, we believe we can capture the significant market opportunity that we had previously identified in an interconnected world with overflowing data and information management needs."

Mr. Meaney concluded, "We have a talented and dedicated workforce at Iron Mountain, and decisions that affect people are never easy. However, we are taking the necessary steps to better position our business for the future."

In connection with the changes to the RIM organization, Patrick Keddy will be retiring as EVP and General Manager of North America and Western Europe and Ernie Cloutier, International EVP and General Manager, will lead global RIM operations within the new structure beginning November 1, 2019. Until his retirement, Mr. Keddy will serve Iron Mountain in a transitionary role, among other responsibilities, assisting Mr. Cloutier in his new role.

Financial Impact

Project Summit is expected to deliver annual run-rate Adjusted EBITDA benefits of $200 million, with substantially all of the benefits realized by the end of 2022, with $80 million of benefits expected to be delivered in 2020.

The activities associated with Project Summit will begin in the fourth quarter of 2019 and are expected to be substantially complete by the end of 2021. The total cost to implement the program is estimated to be approximately $240 million.  During the fourth quarter of 2019, Iron Mountain expects to record pre-tax restructuring charges of approximately $60 million associated with the program, substantially all of which will consist of employee severance costs and professional fees.

Dividend

The Board of Directors of Iron Mountain declared a fourth-quarter cash dividend of USD $0.6185 per share on the common stock of the company, representing an increase of 1.2%. The cash dividend is payable on January 2, 2020 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 16, 2019. Iron Mountain expects to continue growing its dividend, although at a more modest pace going forward.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and also excludes certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results, specifically: (i) (gain) loss on disposal/write-down of property, plant and equipment (including real estate), net; (ii) intangible impairments; (iii) other (income) expense, net (which includes foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net); and (iv) Significant Acquisition Costs. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total revenues. We use multiples of current or projected Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with our discounted cash flow models to determine our estimated overall enterprise valuation and to evaluate acquisition targets. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provide our current and potential investors with relevant and useful information regarding our ability to generate cash flow to support business investment. These measures are an integral part of the internal reporting system we use to assess and evaluate the operating performance of our business.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes both interest expense, net and the provision (benefit) for income taxes. These expenses are associated with our capitalization and tax structures, which we do not consider when evaluating the operating profitability of our core operations. Finally, Adjusted EBITDA does not include depreciation and amortization expenses, in order to eliminate the impact of capital investments, which we evaluate by comparing capital expenditures to incremental revenue generated and as a percentage of total revenues. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income, income (loss) from continuing operations, net income (loss) or cash flows from operating activities from continuing operations (as determined in accordance with GAAP).

Note: Prior periods reflect an immaterial restatement; for further details refer to Iron Mountain's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share, or Adjusted EPS

Adjusted EPS is defined as reported earnings per share fully diluted from continuing operations excluding: (i) (gain) loss on disposal/write-down of property, plant and equipment (including real estate), net; (ii) intangible impairments; (iii) other (income) expense, net (which includes foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net); (iv) Significant Acquisition Costs; and (v) the tax impact of reconciling items and discrete tax items. Adjusted EPS includes income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests. We do not believe these excluded items to be indicative of our ongoing operating results, and they are not considered when we are forecasting our future results. We believe Adjusted EPS is of value to our current and potential investors when comparing our results from past, present and future periods.

Funds From Operations, or FFO (Nareit), and FFO (Normalized)

Funds from operations ("FFO") is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("Nareit") and us as net income (loss) excluding depreciation on real estate assets, gains on sale of real estate, net of tax and amortization of data center leased-based intangibles ("FFO (Nareit)"). FFO (Nareit) does not give effect to real estate depreciation because these amounts are computed, under GAAP, to allocate the cost of a property over its useful life. Because values for well-maintained real estate assets have historically increased or decreased based upon prevailing market conditions, we believe that FFO (Nareit) provides investors with a clearer view of our operating performance. Our most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO (Nareit) is net income (loss). Although Nareit has published a definition of FFO, modifications to FFO (Nareit) are common among REITs as companies seek to provide financial measures that most meaningfully reflect their particular business. Our definition of FFO (Normalized) excludes certain items included in FFO (Nareit) that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results, specifically: (i) (gain) loss on disposal/write-down of property, plant and equipment (excluding real estate), net; (ii) intangible impairments; (iii) other expense (income), net (which includes foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net); (iv) real estate financing lease depreciation; (v) Significant Acquisition Costs; (vi) the tax impact of reconciling items and discrete tax items; (vii) loss (income) from discontinued operations, net of tax; and (viii) loss (gain) on sale of discontinued operations, net of tax.

FFO (Normalized) per share

FFO (Normalized) divided by weighted average fully-diluted shares outstanding.

Our structural tax rate for purposes of the calculation of Adjusted EPS was 18.6% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 20.3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The Tax Impact of Reconciling Items and Discrete Tax Items is calculated using the current quarter's estimate of the annual structural tax rate for both the three month and YTD periods.

Adjusted Funds From Operations, or AFFO

AFFO is defined as FFO (Normalized) excluding non-cash rent expense or income plus depreciation on non-real estate assets, amortization expense associated with customer relationship value (CRV), intake costs, acquisitions of customer relationships and other intangibles, and excluding amortization expense associated with capitalized internal commissions, amortization of deferred financing costs, revenue reduction associated with amortization of permanent withdrawal fees and above-and below-market data center leases, stock-based compensation expense and the impact of reconciling to normalized cash taxes, less recurring capital expenditures and non-real estate growth investments (on a cash basis), excluding Significant Acquisition Capital Expenditures. We believe AFFO is a useful measure in determining our ability to generate excess cash that may be used for reinvestment in the business, discretionary deployment in investments such as real estate or acquisition opportunities, returning capital to our stockholders and voluntary prepayments of indebtedness. Additionally AFFO is reconciled to cash flow from operations to adjust for real estate and REIT tax adjustments, Significant Acquisition Costs and other non-cash expenses. AFFO does not include adjustments for customer inducements, acquisition of customer relationships and investment in innovation as we consider these expenditures to be growth related.
