Standard Register Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Business Solutions revenue declined to $295.1 million from $309.3 million in the first nine months of the prior year and nearly all of the 5 percent decline was from the loss of business at the large financial services customer. Operating income increased by 19 percent to $5.6 million from $4.8 million (or $1.6 million excluding the postretirement plan allocation of $3.2 million).

Consolidated gross margin as a percent of revenue was 30 percent in the first nine months of 2012, compared to 31 percent for the same period in 2011. SG&A expense declined 11 percent in the first nine months of 2012, to $138.6 million from $155.5 million in the prior year. SG&A expense for the first nine months of 2011 included a credit of $3.3 million from amortization of prior service credits before the termination of the postretirement healthcare benefits plan.

Cash flow on a net debt basis was positive by $4.0 million year-to-date in 2012 compared to a negative $5.8 million at the end of the first three quarters of 2011.

Capital Expenditures, Restructuring and Pension Contribution Updates

Through the first nine months of 2012, capital expenditures were $2.4 million. Expected capital expenditures for the full year 2012 are in the range of $7 million to $11 million. The Company continues to invest at a prudent level to support Core technology solutions growth and to increase efficiencies with management reporting systems and customer service. Restructuring efforts have more clearly defined investments that will produce the best return.

In January 2012, the Company announced a two-year strategic restructuring plan to better align its resources in support of the growing Core solutions business and reduce costs to offset the impact of declining revenues in Legacy products. The Company has identified additional savings initiatives and currently expects annual savings of approximately $60 million by the end of 2013. Costs associated with the restructuring program are expected to be approximately $11.5 million by the end of 2013.
