ARC Document Solutions Announces Closing of Tender Offer and Replacement of 10.5% Senior Notes With New 6.25% Term B Loan; Estimated 9 Cents Accretive to Earnings per Share

December 20, 2013

WALNUT CREEK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/20/13 -- ARC Document Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ARC) announced today that it has closed its previously disclosed cash tender offer and consent solicitation relating to its outstanding 10.5% Senior Notes due 2016 (the "Notes"), and that it has provided notice for the redemption of all remaining outstanding Notes. The company also announced that it has entered into a new Term Loan Credit Agreement that consists of a term loan facility in the amount of $200 million, the proceeds of which will be used to fund the closing of the tender offer and the subsequent redemption of the Notes. The new term loan facility bears an initial annual interest rate of 6.25% (LIBOR plus 525 basis points with a 1.0% LIBOR floor). The company expects to save more than $7 million in annual cash interest payments relative to the Notes, which equates to approximately nine cents earnings per share.

Pursuant to the terms of the previously disclosed cash tender offer and consent solicitation relating to the Notes, the company has accepted for payment approximately $127.5 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes that were validly tendered on or prior to the consent payment deadline of 5:00 pm New York Time on December 16, 2013. Holders who tendered such Notes will receive $1,060 per $1,000 in principal amount of the Notes validly tendered, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The consents received in the consent solicitation exceeded the number needed to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture under which the Notes were issued. The terms of the tender offer and consent solicitation for the Notes are detailed in the company's Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated December 3, 2013. Based on the consents received, the company and the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes have entered into a supplemental indenture that eliminates substantially all affirmative and restrictive covenants and certain events of default under the indenture governing the Notes, and provides for a shorter three business day notice period required in connection with an optional redemption.

In addition, the company intends today to discharge its remaining obligations under the indenture governing the Notes by causing a notice of redemption to be delivered to holders of the remaining outstanding Notes and depositing funds sufficient to pay and discharge all remaining indebtedness on the remaining outstanding Notes, including accrued and unpaid interest.

As noted above, the company also announced today that it has entered into a new Term Loan Credit Agreement. The Term Loan Credit Agreement consists of a term loan facility in the initial aggregate principal amount of $200 million, the entirety of which was disbursed today in order to pay a portion of the price associated with the purchase of the Notes that were accepted under the tender offer and the subsequent redemption of the remaining outstanding Notes, and to pay associated fees and expenses in connection with the tender offer and redemption.

Morgan Securities LLC at (212) 270-3153 or Wells Fargo Securities, LLC at (866) 309-6316. Wells Fargo Bank, National Association has been appointed to act as the Depositary for the Tender Offer.
