Robert G. Burton, Sr., Chairman and CEO stated:
“Despite a challenging economic backdrop we were able to accomplish several key initiatives in 2012. We completed the refinancing of all our near-term debt maturities, divested a non-core asset, paid down $63 million of debt and invested in our core operations. Our fourth quarter results were similar to the trends that we experienced throughout the year driven by well-known and anticipated top line challenges stemming from continued softness in direct mail from our financial services customers and timing of transactional volumes in our print business. We do believe that we will see normalized volumes from our direct mail customers in 2013 compared to 2012. Despite the continuation of a challenging environment again in the fourth quarter, we were able to generate $33.4 million in cash flows from operating activities of continuing operations.”
“As we have put our refinancing issues firmly behind us, we will focus our efforts back on operating the business by looking to grow revenues and cash flow and creating value in several ways in 2013. We will look to expand upon our efforts to transform our capital structure and increase cash flow by lowering our cost of capital by paying off our highest cost debt and potentially refinancing our revolver and term loan. We will continue to invest in our core operations with capital and technology that drive efficiencies and increase productivity. As we have previously discussed, we will strategically evaluate all our operations to determine which, if any, alternatives are in the best interests of our stakeholders. As we did in 2012 with the disposition of our forms and documents group, we will look to potentially dispose of businesses that we view as non-strategic to our future. Based on the current business climate, I expect Revenues and Adjusted EBITDA to be relatively consistent with last year's results and to generate at least $75 million of free cash flow in 2013. I look forward to our conference call tomorrow to discuss our outlook for 2013 and beyond.”
