Management Commentary

"The second quarter challenged our forecast for 2019," said Suri Suriyakumar, CEO of ARC Document Solutions. "Given the softness in markets across the board, and the weakness in housing starts combined with a weaker Architectural Billings Index toward the end of the quarter, it wasn't entirely unexpected. While half of our year-over-year sales decline was due to a drop in international equipment and supplies sales, such an environment, coupled with ongoing erosion in print volumes, makes it difficult for us to sustain our growth. Thankfully, management has been making changes in the business to adapt and took steps to protect the profitability of the company during the quarter."

"Having reviewed ARC's results for the past six months, we believe it is time for us to critically examine and re-evaluate the products and services we offer," said Mr. Suriyakumar. "We are facing a constantly-changing sales environment that continues to move away from traditional uses of print. We must move with it. Going forward, we need to focus our sales teams on business lines where we can sustain or grow our market share, build new ways to determine the needs of the industry, and identify opportunities for ARC."

"Our cash flows remain robust and the strength of our capital structure continues to provide a solid platform to consider options," said Jorge Avalos, CFO. "With regard to the second quarter, a drop of just 20 basis points in our gross margins speaks to our ability to manage our costs aggressively, especially in light of the 5.1% drop in sales for the quarter. We continued to reduce our debt by $5 million during the period, and we also re-purchased more than 350,000 shares of ARC stock."

2019 Second Quarter Supplemental Information:

Net sales were $98.9 million, a 5.1% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Days sales outstanding were 54 in Q2 2019 and 52 in Q2 2018.

Architectural, engineering, construction and building owner/operators (AEC/O) customers comprised approximately 79% of total net sales, while customers outside of construction made up approximately 21% of total net sales.

Total number of MPS locations at the end of the second quarter grew to approximately 10,675, a net gain of approximately 285 locations over Q2 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense.

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.

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 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, 2019 and 2018 to reflect the exclusion of 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, 2019 and 2018.

We have presented adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 to exclude stock-based compensation expense. The adjustment of EBITDA 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.
