Shares of office products company Staples (SPLS) are sinking after the company's first quarter profit and second quarter outlook trailed analysts' consensus estimates.

Q2 revenue was seen decreasing year over year, compared to consensus of $5.19B. The company expects to record pre-tax charges in the range of $105M-$155M associated with restructuring and other related activities during the second quarter. For FY14, the company sees total global restructuring and related charges of $240M-$360M. It expects to generate more than $600M of free cash flow in FY14. The company's free cash flow guidance reflects an expected use of cash in the range of $60M-$100M associated with its 2014 global restructuring and other related activities.
