Management Commentary:

"ARC's business transformation remains on track," said Suri Suriyakumar, Chairman and CEO of ARC. "We are gratified that our strategic focus and selective investments are driving top line growth, even while material and labor costs continue to pressure margins."

"Our focus on key business lines, and the efforts our teams have made over the past three months rewarded us with nearly three percent growth in sales for the first quarter," said Dilo Wijesuriya, President and COO of ARC. "U.S., Canadian, U.K., and other international markets all had positive sales momentum, but we had to work for it. Construction and design activity slowed which affected plan printing, and capital spending was constrained. We fought back with color and scanning to offset these challenges and delivered a solid quarter."

"Revenue growth drove the one cent increase in earnings per share for the quarter, but we felt the impact of inflationary pressures at the gross margin line," said Jorge Avalos, Chief Financial Officer. "That said, we secured our annual dividend with cash flows that were in line with the prior year period, and we expect to continue purchasing more of our own stock in 2024."

2024 First Quarter Supplemental Information:

Net sales were $70.8 million, a 2.7%increase compared to the first quarter of 2023.

Cash & cash equivalents on the consolidated balance sheet in the first quarter 2024 were $52.0 million.

ARC's next quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 will be paid on May 31, 2024 with a record date of April 30, 2024.

Days sales outstanding were 48 in Q1 2024 and 51 in Q1 2023.

The number of MPS locations have declined slightly year over year to approximately 10,400 as of March 31, 2024, representing a net decrease of approximately 300 locations compared to March 31, 2023.

Net Revenue

Total net revenue
$70.8 $281.2 $68.9 $71.1 $72.4 $68.9

In the first quarter 2024, net sales increased 2.7%, compared to the same period in 2023. The increase in net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to the same period in 2023 was primarily driven by the growth of sales in Digital Printing and Scanning and Digital Imaging sales. Growth for the period was partially offset by small declines in sales of our other products and services.

Revenue by Business Lines

In millions
1Q 2024 FYE 2023 4Q 2023 3Q 2023 2Q 2023 1Q 2023
Digital Printing
$42.7 $170.1 $40.9 $43.5 $44.2 $41.4
MPS
$18.6 $74.8 $18.2 $18.6 $19.0 $19.0
Scanning and Digital Imaging
$5.7 $20.3 $5.5 $5.0 $5.3 $4.6
Equipment and supplies
$3.8 $16.0 $4.3 $3.9 $3.9 $3.9

In the first quarter 2024, Digital Printing sales increased 3.3% compared to prior year. Year-over-year sales saw healthy increases in digital color graphic printing from new and existing customers. This growth was offset by a small decrease in digital plan printing sales which we continue to attribute to less activity and lower spending on new construction projects due to high interest rates and the subsequent higher costs of capital over the past year.

In the first quarter 2024, MPS sales decreased 2.3% year-over-year. MPS sales have remained in a narrow band between $18 million to $19 million per quarter for more than two years, strongly implying fewer employees in the workplace will continue to constrain onsite print volumes relative to historical averages.

In the first quarter 2024, Scanning and Digital Imaging sales increased 23.4% year-over-year. The increase in sales of our Scanning and Digital Imaging services continues to be driven by growing demand for paper-to-digital document conversions and digital archives to replace long-term warehoused paper document storage. We believe that our Scanning and Digital Imaging services will continue to grow in the future.

In the first quarter 2024, Equipment and Supplies sales decreased 3.0% year-over-year. Equipment and Supplies sales continue to decline primarily in the U.S., while sales from our Chinese joint venture rose slightly. We attribute the decrease in U.S. sales to the desire of our domestic customers to reduce capital spending due to the increasing interest rates of the past couple of years.

Gross Profit

In millions unless otherwise indicated
1Q 2024 FYE 2023 4Q 2023 3Q 2023 2Q 2023 1Q 2023

Gross margin

In the first quarter 2024, gross profit and gross margin were $22.8 million, and 32.2%, respectively, a year-over-year margin decline of 110 basis points driven primarily by increases in labor and material costs due to inflation pressures and increased hiring as we increased and adjusted capacity for our digital color graphic printing and Scanning and Digital Imaging Services. The increase in labor cost was partially offset by the decrease in depreciation of $0.6 million.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

In millions

$19.1 $76.3 $18.6 $19.3 $19.0 $19.5

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.4 million or 2.1% year-over-year. The decrease is primarily due to lower bonus accruals and consulting fees, partially offset by the increase in sales and marketing initiatives that are helping drive the growth within digital color graphic printing and Scanning and Digital Imaging Service sales.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

Year-over-year net income attributable to ARC and earnings per share increased during the first quarter of 2024. The increase was driven primarily by lower selling, general and administrative expenses and interest expense.

The slight decrease in cash flows from operations during the first quarter of 2024 was primarily due to timing of receivable collections as a result of an increase in sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share 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, net income margin, diluted earnings per share 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. We have presented these measures 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.

EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We calculate EBITDA margin by dividing EBITDA by net sales.

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

EBITDA and EBITDA margin 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 EBITDA margin 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 stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2024 to reflect the exclusion of changes in the valuation allowances related to certain deferred tax assets and other discrete tax items. We believe this presentation helps facilitate our investors understanding of our results of operations and allows them to make meaningful comparisons of our operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 against the corresponding periods in 2023. We believe these changes were the result of items which are not indicative of our actual operating performance.

We have presented Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2024 to exclude stock-based compensation expense. We calculated Adjusted EBITDA margin by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by net sales. The adjustment to exclude stock-based compensation expense from 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 and ability to access our credit facility.
