Announcement of Company-wide Cost Containment Actions in Response to Pandemic Crisis
Today the Company also announced temporary and voluntary salary reductions for its executive and managerial staff. All salaried employees have accepted temporary salary reductions between 10% and 25%. In addition, the executive suite has taken voluntary salary reductions amounting to 50% for the CEO, and salary reductions of 35% for the COO, CFO and CTO.

Additional compensation measures for ARC's hourly employees were made on a market-by-market basis, dependent on local business levels at the Company's 170 service center locations.
"We serve essential businesses all around the country, so it is vital that we keep our employees healthy, the company operational and our customers productive during this extraordinarily disruptive time," said Suri Suriyakumar, CEO of ARC. "Our teams in every service center and office have been nimble and adaptable in reacting to local health and economic conditions. Where necessary, they have made sacrifices in compensation or work hours in an effort to support the company and their communities. I'm very proud of their actions."
