RR Donnelley Reports Third-Quarter 2014 Results

CHICAGO, Nov. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2014:

Highlights:

  • Third-quarter net sales of $3.0 billion grew 13.1% from the third quarter of 2013; organic net sales grew 0.8% from the third quarter of 2013
  • Third-quarter GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $62.2 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders in the third quarter of 2013 of $14.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share
  • Third-quarter non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $78.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders in the third quarter of 2013 of $69.3 million, or $0.38 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA in the quarter of $313.2 million increased by $33.1 million, or 11.8%, from the third quarter of 2013
  • Company refines full-year 2014 guidance within previously issued ranges

"Our third-quarter results reflect the continuing success we are having in the marketplace, highlighted by the positive trend in revenue. Despite a challenging comparable related to the timing shift of a significant customer project into the fourth quarter this year, we achieved organic revenue growth of 0.8% in the third quarter. In addition, we continue to reduce our gross leverage, reflecting the combination of our year-over-year EBITDA growth and third-quarter debt reduction of approximately $75 million," said Thomas J. Quinlan III, RR Donnelley's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We remain committed to migrating 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 $3.0 billion, up $342.9 million, or 13.1%, from the third quarter of 2013, largely due to the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte. After adjusting for the impact of acquisitions and dispositions, organic sales increased 0.8% from the third quarter of 2013, as increases in the Strategic Services and Variable Print segments were partially offset by declines in the Publishing and Retail Services and International segments.

GAAP Earnings

Third-quarter 2014 net earnings attributable to common shareholders was $62.2 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $14.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013. The third-quarter 2014 diluted share count increased by 17.7 million shares from the third quarter of 2013, primarily related to shares issued in connection with the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte. The third-quarter net earnings attributable to common shareholders included pre-tax charges of $22.6 million and $85.5 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

Third-quarter 2014 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $313.2 million, or 10.6% of net sales, compared to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $280.1 million, or 10.7% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2013. The increase in non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte, as well as higher volume, primarily in the Strategic Services segment. These increases were partially offset by price pressure in each segment which also negatively impacted margin.

Non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders totaled $78.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $69.3 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013. The third-quarter 2014 diluted share count increased by 17.7 million shares from the third quarter of 2013, primarily related to shares issued in connection with the acquisitions of Consolidated Graphics and the North American operations of Esselte. Third-quarter non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders excluded pre-tax charges of $22.6 million and $85.5 million in 2014 and 2013, respectively. Reconciliations of net earnings attributable to common shareholders to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net earnings attributable to common shareholders are presented in the attached schedules.

Internally, the Company uses this non-GAAP information as an indicator of business performance, and evaluates management's effectiveness with specific reference to these indicators. These measures should be considered in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Use of Forward-Looking Statements

In aggregate, approximately $240 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.

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 $130 million in borrowings under the Credit Agreement as of September 30, 2014.
