Management Commentary

"2014 was a great year for us," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC Document Solutions. "It was a year that culminated in the transformation of the company into a technology services provider, laying the foundation for our future growth. In the midst of all this change and the disruption that came with it, ARC finished six quarters of consecutive sales growth, saw earnings per share nearly triple, significantly increased its cash flows, and refinanced its long term debt for the second time in 12 months. Needless to say, I am gratified with the work done by our management team, and I look forward sharing our ideas for ARC's future during our upcoming earnings call and on our investor day on March 6th."

"The significant increase in 2014 annual earnings per share was due to our increase in sales, tight controls over our costs, and major improvements in our capital structure," said Jorge Avalos, ARC's Chief Financial Officer. "Adjusted cash flow from operations in 2014 increased 14% over 2013, and this allowed us to pay down $27 million, or 14%, of our term credit facility. By the end of the year, the resulting decrease in our leverage ratio coupled with our improved financial performance allowed us to secure a new Term A loan with an initial interest rate of approximately 2.75% -- 350 basis points lower than our previous term loan -- which will yield annual savings of approximately $6 million."

2014 Fourth Quarter Supplemental Information:

Net sales were $107.6 million, a 6.2% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

Days sales outstanding in Q4 2014 were 52 compared to 50 days in Q4 2013.

AEC customers comprised approximately 77% of our total net sales, while non-AEC customers made up 23% of our total net sales.

Total number of Onsite Services contracts was approximately 8,500, a gain of approximately 800 contracts over Q4 2013.

(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 our 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 December 2014, the court awarded the defendant attorneys' fees related to the case. In February 2015, ARC entered into a settlement with the defendant with regards to attorneys' fees. Legal fees associated with the litigation totaled $1.0 million and $3.8 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures.

EBIT, 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.

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

We present EBIT, 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 EBIT and 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. As a result, we believe EBIT is the best measure of operating segment profitability and the most useful metric by which to measure and compare the performance of our operating segments. We use EBITDA to measure performance for determining consolidated-level compensation. In addition, we use EBIT and EBITDA to evaluate potential acquisitions and potential capital expenditures.

EBIT, 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, EBIT, 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 EBIT, EBITDA and related ratios only as supplements.

Our presentation of adjusted net income, adjusted cash flows from operating activities, 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. For more information, see our 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Specifically, we have presented adjusted net income attributable to ARC shareholders and adjusted earnings per share attributable to ARC shareholders for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 to reflect the exclusion of loss on extinguishment of debt, restructuring expense, trade secret litigation costs, and changes in the valuation allowances related to certain deferred tax assets and other discrete tax items. We have presented adjusted cash flows from operating activities for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 to reflect the exclusion of cash payments related to trade secret litigation costs, cash payments related to restructuring expenses, and the receipt of a federal income tax refund in 2013 related to the Company's 2009 consolidated federal income tax return. This presentation facilitates a meaningful comparison of our operating results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013. We believe these charges were the result of the current macroeconomic environment, our capital restructuring, or other items which are not indicative of our actual operating performance.

We presented adjusted EBITDA in three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 to exclude loss on extinguishment of debt, trade secret litigation costs, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring 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.
