Cenveo’s Net Sales Fall, but Income Figures Show Mixed ResultsAugust 8, 2012
For the second quarter of 2012, Cenveo had income from continuing operations of less than $0.1 million, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $1.6 million. On a Non-GAAP basis, income from continuing operations was $8.4 million for the second quarter of 2012, as compared to $7.5 million for the second quarter of 2011.
For the first six months of 2012, the company had a loss from continuing operations of $22.5 million compared to loss from continuing operations of $0.5 million for the first six months of 2011.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2012 was $53.1 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 of $53.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2012 was $100.1 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2011 of $100.9 million.
Robert G. Burton, Sr., chairman and CEO stated, “Our second quarter results were in line with our expectations as we continued to execute well despite a challenging economic back drop. We were able to generate over $33 million in cash flow from operating activities of continuing operations, pay down debt and materially address our notes maturing in December 2013 by retiring $50.0 million of these notes.
“I feel highly confident in our plan to quickly address the remaining $98.5 million by continuing to generate strong cash flow and continuing to drive working capital improvements. Also, the passage of MAP-21 with its pension plan interest rate stabilization is very positive for Cenveo. We currently estimate this legislation will reduce our planned pension contributions in excess of $10.5 million through 2013 and provides us additional cash to reduce our notes maturing in 2013, repay other outstanding debt or invest in our growing businesses,” Burton added.
“Operationally, our label and packaging products continue to deliver solid performances in 2012, with strong e-commerce revenue and production expansion offsetting our planned decision to walk away from unprofitable business. Despite being challenged by some cyclical and customer specific issues, our envelope operations delivered expected revenue and operational results met our expectations,” the chief exec continue.
“As we stated earlier this year, we expect the direct mail market to firm in the second half of 2012 as our customers return to a more normalized ordering pattern. Our print products were led by improving performance out of our print group. Our publisher services operations continue to be affected by macro trends and in changes in the timing of customer purchases offset by continued improvement in our content management business.“
Burton concluded, “As we enter the back half of the year, 2012 is generally progressing in line with our expectations. Despite a challenging macro environment, we have been able to drive cash flow, pay down debt and increase our operating margins. We are intensely focused at addressing our capital structure, particularly our 7.875 percent notes that mature at the end 2013, and fully expect to address the remaining $98.5 million by early 2013.
“Lastly, based on our current outlook, recent sales momentum and our focus on our cost structure, we remain on track to deliver the full year targets that are consistent with our previous guidance.”
