RR Donnelley Reports First-Quarter 2013 Results

CHICAGO, April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

Highlights:
  • First-quarter 2013 net sales of $2.5 billion grew 0.5% from the first quarter of 2012
  • U.S. Print and Related Services segment net sales declined 0.5%
  • International segment net sales grew 3.5%
  • Organic net sales decline of 1.2% reflects improvement in trend from the previous five quarters
  • First-quarter 2013 GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $27.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share
  • First-quarter 2013 non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $68.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share
  • First-quarter 2013 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $277.1 million, or 10.9% of net sales
  • Company reaffirms revenue, margin and free cash flow guidance for full-year 2013

"Our first-quarter results allow us to reaffirm our full-year guidance for revenue, margin and free cash flow," said Thomas J. Quinlan III, R.R. Donnelley's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to focus our efforts to drive free cash flow, and remain committed to our targeted gross leverage range of 2.25x to 2.75x on a long-term sustainable basis."

Net sales in the quarter were $2.5 billion, up $13.6 million, or 0.5%, from the first quarter of 2012 due to the impact of 2012 acquisitions and volume growth in the International segment. The first quarter of 2012 included an adjustment to accounts receivable for prior periods' overaccruals of rebates owed to certain customers that favorably impacted both sales and operating income by $19.8 million. After adjusting for the impact of this rebate adjustment, as well as the impact of acquisitions, changes in foreign exchange rates and pass-through paper sales, organic sales declined 1.2% from the first quarter of 2012 due to price erosion and volume declines in the U.S. Print and Related Services segment. Operating income in the first quarter of 2013 was $139.8 million, which was impacted by restructuring and impairment charges and acquisition-related expenses totaling $23.7 million, compared to operating income in the first quarter of 2012 of $121.4 million, which included restructuring and impairment charges and acquisition-related expenses totaling $50.3 million.

First-quarter 2013 net income attributable to common shareholders was $27.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to net income of $37.4 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2012. First-quarter 2013 net income attributable to common shareholders included $62.5 million in pre-tax charges for restructuring, impairment (non-cash), acquisition-related expenses, a loss on currency devaluation in Venezuela and a loss on debt extinguishment, while in the first quarter of 2012, net income attributable to common shareholders included $62.4 million in pre-tax charges for restructuring, impairment (non-cash), acquisition-related expenses and a loss on debt extinguishment. Additional details regarding the nature of these and other items are included in the attached schedules.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $277.1 million in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $296.7 million in the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin in the first quarter of 2013 was 10.9%, or 90 basis points lower than in the first quarter of 2012, as the $19.8 million customer rebate adjustment, price pressure, an unfavorable product mix and lower pension income more than offset lower employee-related expenses and productivity improvements.

Non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders totaled $68.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $78.8 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2012. First-quarter non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders exclude restructuring and impairment charges, losses on debt extinguishment, and acquisition-related expenses in both years as well as the loss on currency devaluation in Venezuela in 2013. 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.

Outlook

The Company provides the following guidance for the full-year 2013:
 
  Current guidance Previous guidance
Revenue $10.1 to $10.3 billion $10.1 to $10.3 billion
Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin 11.2% to 11.4% 11.2% to 11.4%

The reported results of the Company include the results of acquired businesses from the acquisition date forward. The Company has provided this schedule to reconcile reported net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 to pro forma net sales as if the 2012 acquisitions took place as of January 1, 2012 for the purposes of this schedule.       
       
There were no acquisitions during the three months ended March 31, 2013.

(1) Liquidity does not include credit facilities of non-U.S. subsidiaries, which are uncommitted facilities.
         
(2) Approximately 80% of cash as of March 31, 2013, 85% of cash as of December 31, 2012 and 89% of cash as of March 31, 2012 was located outside the U.S. In 2013, the Company's foreign subsidiaries are expected to make intercompany payments to the U.S. of approximately $40 million from foreign cash balances as of March 31, 2013. These payments, and additional payments expected to be made in future years, will be made in satisfaction of intercompany obligations. The Company expects to use the cash received in the U.S. to reduce debt, either through repayment of short-term borrowings or repurchase of senior notes or debentures. Cash held by foreign subsidiaries may be subject to U.S. or local country income or withholding 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 replaced the Company's previous $1.75 billion unsecured and committed revolving credit agreement (the "Previous Credit Agreement") which was due to expire on December 17, 2013. 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. As of March 31, 2013, the Company had $71.5 million in outstanding letters of credit, of which $38.9 million were issued under the Credit Agreement. There were no borrowings under the Credit Agreement as of March 31, 2013. Based on the Company's results of operations for the twelve months ended March 31, 2013 and existing debt, the Company would have had the ability to utilize $1.1 billion of the $1.15 billion Credit Agreement and not have been in violation of the terms of the agreement. See the table below for a reconciliation of the stated amount to the current availability as of March 31, 2013, December 31, 2012 and March 31, 2012.
