Management Commentary

"From a financial perspective, the company had a strong second quarter," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC Document Solutions. "In the first half of 2017 we generated nearly four million dollars more in cash flows from operations than we did in 2016. Our second quarter gross margin was a healthy 33.7%, and SG&A for the period was essentially flat compared to 2016, even with our investments in sales and marketing. This is extremely gratifying, especially in light of continuing headwinds in print sales and our ongoing transformation."

"In addition to this, we were also able to successfully renegotiate our debt agreement with our banks," said Mr. Suriyakumar. "Our previous agreements reflected a time when the company was working towards stabilizing its revenues after an unprecedented financial crisis. Today however, we need more flexibility and dry powder to invest in areas where we can grow our current market share, and accelerate revenues with our new technology offerings. The new agreement provides us the ability to do exactly that."

"Our margins and cash flow performance demonstrate the tight controls over our expenses, and the leverage we can exert over every dollar we make," said Jorge Avalos, Chief Financial Officer for ARC Document Solutions. "In addition to our strong financial performance in the second quarter, it was rewarding to be able to enhance our capital structure with our five-year amended credit agreement which reduces our interest rate, and significantly improves our amortization schedule."

2017 Second Quarter Supplemental Information:

Net sales were $102.3 million, a 1.4% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2016.

Days sales outstanding in Q2 2017 were 52, compared to 53 days in Q2 2016.

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 9,830, a net gain of approximately 590 locations over Q2 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment, restructuring expense and stock-based compensation expense.

(1)  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 primarily consist of revised estimated lease termination and obligation costs resulting from facilities closed in 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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, 2017 and 2016 to reflect the exclusion of loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment, restructuring expense, 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, 2017 and 2016. 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 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 to exclude loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment, 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.
