Management Commentary

"Our managed print services program continued to perform well in the second quarter, and the rest of the business is stabilizing," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC Document Solutions. "With exceptional operational performance, we have been able to deliver a strong quarter, generate excellent cash flows, and create an opportunity to aggressively reduce our senior debt."

Chief Operating Officer, Dilo Wijesuriya, said, "We made significant gains with some of our largest prospects and clients during the quarter, and made good progress in placing our technology products and services. The construction market appears to be regaining some of its strength in certain markets, and that will help us in the coming quarters as we leverage the operational improvements we've made since the recession."

"Our revenue improvement was welcome particularly when combined with the fundamental increase in our margins. Ultimately our generation of free cash tells our story best during this period, growing 199% on a year-over-year basis for the quarter," said John Toth, Chief Financial Officer. "We continue to put a high priority on improving our credit quality, and leveraging the upgrade by S&P to pursue further improvements in our capital structure."

2014 Second Quarter Supplemental Information:

Net sales were $109.0 million, a 4.2% increase compared to the second quarter of 2013.

Days sales outstanding in Q2 2014 were 52, compared to 54 days in Q2 2013.

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

Total number of Onsite Services contracts at the end of the second quarter was approximately 8,000, a gain of nearly 300 contracts from the beginning of the year.

Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA net of the impact of restructuring costs, stock based compensation, and one-time significant legal expenses.

(2) 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. We are considering our appeal options. Legal fees associated with the litigation totaled $2.1 million and $2.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. ARC Document Solutions, Inc.

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 also use EBIT to measure performance for determining operating segment-level compensation and 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. For more information, see our interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes on our 2014 second quarter report on Form 10-Q. Additionally, please refer to our 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Our presentation of adjusted net income 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.

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, 2014 and 2013 to reflect the exclusion of restructuring expense, trade secret litigation costs, and 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, 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 the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 to exclude stock-based compensation expense, trade secret litigation costs, and restructuring expense. The adjustment of EBITDA for non-cash adjustments 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.
