ARC Document Solutions Reports Results for Second Quarter 2016




WALNUT CREEK, CA — (Marketwired) — 08/02/16 — ARC Document Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ARC), a leading document solutions provider to design, engineering, construction, and facilities management professionals, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Net sales of $103.8 million vs. $113.4 million in Q2 2015

Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.10 vs. $0.13 in Q2 2015

Gross margin of 35.1% vs. 36.0% in Q2 2015 due to lower sales volume

Cash flow from operations of $16.6 million vs. $16.9 million in Q2 2015

Adjusted EBITDA of $18.1 million or 17.5%

Approximately 581,000 shares of ARC common stock repurchased in the open market

Revised 2016 forecast is for annual adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $0.24 to $0.28; annual cash flow from operations to be in the range of $48 million to $52 million; and annual adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $59 million to $63 million.

“Despite continuing drops in our traditional business, our new services continue to grow, led by year-over-year growth of nine percent in archiving and information management,” said K. “Suri” Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC Document Solutions. “While our technology services have yet to offset declines related to printing services, our cash position remains strong as evidenced by our continuing ability to repurchase our shares and reduce our senior debt. Our capital structure is excellent, and we are confident in our ability to keep the company stable and productive during this transition.”

“The type of transition ARC is going through is a tough one. The result is that we are changing at every level — sales, operations, technology, and finance — to balance the future needs of the market against what customers need today,” Mr. Suriyakumar continued. “This is especially true given that the construction industry is slow in adopting technology. It is why I have emphasized in my previous discussions that we require 24 to 36 months to get on top of this transition.”

“The company remains on sound financial footing while we work our way through the difficult sales comparison to last year,” said Jorge Avalos, Chief Financial Officer of ARC Document Solutions. “Cash flow from operations is on par with last year–s performance, the leverage ratio on our senior debt is below 2.5 times, and we continue to repurchase shares, all of which demonstrates our continuing focus on cash generation, debt pay-down, and returning value to our shareholders.”

Net sales were $103.8 million, an 8.5% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2015.

Days sales outstanding in Q2 2016 were 53, compared to 54 days in Q2 2015.

Architectural, engineering, construction and building owner/operators (AEC/O) customers comprised approximately 77% of our total net sales, while customers outside of construction made up approximately 23% of our total net sales.

Total number of MPS locations at the end of the second quarter has grown to approximately 9,240, a gain of 520 locations over Q2 2015. This information reflects the reduction of approximately 200 locations associated with a large client that did not renew their MPS engagement with us at the end of 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment, the impact of trade secret litigation costs, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring expense.

ARC Document Solutions has revised is 2016 annual forecast and now anticipates annual adjusted earnings per share in 2016 to be in the range of $0.24 to $0.28 on a fully diluted basis, as compared to $0.30 to $0.35 previously. Annual cash flow from operations is now projected to be in the range of $48 million to $52 million, as compared to $55 million to $60 million previously. The Company–s outlook for 2016 annual adjusted EBITDA is now expected to be in the range of $59 million to $63 million, as compared to $66 to $71 million previously.

(1) On February 1, 2013, we filed a civil complaint against a competitor and a former employee in the Superior Court of California for Orange County, which alleged, among other claims, the misappropriation of ARC trade secrets; namely, proprietary customer lists that were used to communicate with ARC customers in an attempt to unfairly acquire their business. In prior litigation with the competitor based on related facts, in 2007 the competitor entered into a settlement agreement and stipulated judgment, which included an injunction. We instituted this suit to stop the defendant from using similar unfair business practices against us in the Southern California market. The case proceeded to trial in May 2014, and a jury verdict was entered for the defendants. In the first quarter of 2015, we entered into a settlement and paid the defendant. Legal fees associated with the litigation were recorded as selling, general and administrative expense.

(2) In October 2012, we initiated a restructuring plan which included the closure or downsizing of the Company–s service center locations, as well as a reduction in headcount. Restructuring expenses in 2016 and 2015 primarily consist of revised estimated lease termination and obligation costs resulting from facilities closed in 2013.

EBITDA and related ratios presented in this report are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by or presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). These measures are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, income from operations, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as a measure of our liquidity.

EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA margin is a non-GAAP measure calculated by dividing EBITDA by net sales.

We have presented EBITDA and related ratios because we consider them important supplemental measures of our performance and liquidity. We believe investors may also find these measures meaningful, given how our management makes use of them. The following is a discussion of our use of these measures.

We use EBITDA to measure and compare the performance of our operating segments. Our operating segments– financial performance includes all of the operating activities except debt and taxation which are managed at the corporate level for U.S. operating segments. We use EBITDA to compare the performance of our operating segments and to measure performance for determining consolidated-level compensation. In addition, we use EBITDA to evaluate potential acquisitions and potential capital expenditures.

EBITDA and related ratios have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are as follows:

They do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures and contractual commitments;

They do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;

They do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary, to service interest or principal payments on our debt;

Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and

Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA, and related ratios should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in business growth or to reduce our indebtedness. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using EBITDA and related ratios only as supplements.

Our presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA over certain periods is an attempt to provide meaningful comparisons to our historical performance for our existing and future investors. The unprecedented changes in our end markets over the past several years have required us to take measures that are unique in our history and specific to individual circumstances. Comparisons inclusive of these actions make normal financial and other performance patterns difficult to discern under a strict GAAP presentation. Each non-GAAP presentation, however, is explained in detail in the reconciliation tables above.

Specifically, we have presented adjusted net income attributable to ARC and adjusted earnings per share attributable to ARC shareholders for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 to reflect the exclusion of loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment, restructuring expense, trade secret litigation costs, and changes in the valuation allowances related to certain deferred tax assets and other discrete tax items. This presentation facilitates a meaningful comparison of our operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. We believe these charges were the result of the then current macroeconomic environment, our capital restructuring, or other items which are not indicative of our actual operating performance.

We have presented adjusted EBITDA in the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 to exclude loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment, trade secret litigation costs, restructuring expense and stock-based compensation expense. The adjustment of EBITDA for these items is consistent with the definition of adjusted EBITDA in our credit agreement; therefore, we believe this information is useful to investors in assessing our financial performance.
