July 30, 2014

CHICAGO, July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company(Nasdaq:RRD) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2014:

Highlights:

• Second-quarter net sales of $2.9 billion grew 12.9% from the second quarter of 2013; organic net sales grew 0.8% from the second quarter of 2013• Second-quarter GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $64.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders in the second quarter of 2013 of $65.4 million, or $0.36 per diluted share• Second-quarter non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $84.4 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders in the second quarter of 2013 of $82.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share• Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA in the quarter of $325.6 million increased by $21.5 million, or 7.1%, from the second quarter of 2013• Company reiterates full-year 2014 guidance for net sales, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow

"The positive momentum we experienced late in the first quarter carried through into the second quarter, where we returned to positive year-over-year organic revenue growth, generated higher EBITDA and reduced our total debt in the quarter by approximately $70 million," said Thomas J. Quinlan III, RR Donnelley's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we begin the second half of the year, our year-to-date performance, including the on-boarding and integration of our acquisitions that closed in the first quarter, keeps us on track to deliver our full-year guidance. Our expectation for free cash flow, in the range of $400 million to $500 million, allows us to continue to migrate toward our targeted gross leverage range of 2.25x to 2.75x on a long-term sustainable basis."

Net Sales

Net sales in the quarter were $2.9 billion, up $330.9 million, or 12.9%, from the second quarter of 2013, largely due to the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte. After adjusting for the positive impact of acquisitions and pass-through paper sales, and the negative impact of dispositions, organic sales increased 0.8% from the second quarter of 2013, as volume increases in the Strategic Services and Variable Print segments were partially offset by price erosion in each segment and volume declines in the Publishing and Retail Services segment.

GAAP Earnings

Second-quarter 2014 net earnings attributable to common shareholders was $64.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $65.4 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. The second-quarter 2014 diluted share count increased by 18.2 million shares from the second quarter of 2013, primarily related to shares issued in connection with the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte. The second-quarter net earnings attributable to common shareholders included pre-tax charges of $28.3 million and $25.4 million in 2014 and 2013, respectively, all of which were excluded from the presentation of non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders. Additional details regarding the amount and nature of these and other items are included in the attached schedules.

Non-GAAP Earnings

Second-quarter 2014 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $325.6 million, or 11.2% of net sales, compared to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $304.1 million, or 11.8% of net sales, in the second quarter of 2013. The increase in non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was due to the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte, as well as higher volume. These increases were partially offset by price pressure in each segment and wage and other cost inflation, all of which also negatively impacted margin. 

Non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders totaled $84.4 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $82.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. The second-quarter 2014 diluted share count increased by 18.2 million shares from the second quarter of 2013, primarily related to shares issued in connection with the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte. Second-quarter non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders excluded pre-tax charges and other adjustments of $28.3 million and $25.4 million in 2014 and 2013, respectively. A reconciliation of net earnings attributable to common shareholders to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders is presented in the attached schedules.

In aggregate, approximately $250 million in payments is expected to be made in 2014 and in future years in satisfaction of intercompany obligations. Cash held by foreign subsidiaries may be subject to U.S. or local country taxes if repatriated to the U.S. In addition, repatriation of some foreign cash balances is further restricted by local laws.
       
(3) The Company has a $1.15 billion senior secured revolving credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") which expires October 15, 2017. The Credit Agreement is subject to a number of covenants, including a minimum Interest Coverage Ratio and a maximum Leverage Ratio, both as defined and calculated in the Credit Agreement. There were $193 million in borrowings under the Credit Agreement as of June 30, 2014. Based on the Company's results of operations for the twelve months ended June 30, 2014 and existing debt, the Company would have had the ability to utilize $0.9 billion of the $1.15 billion Credit Agreement and not have been in violation of the terms of the agreement.
