- Adjusted Annual EPS Fully Diluted: $0.38
American Reprographics Company (the "Company"), the nation's leading provider of reprographic services and technology, today reported its financial results for the full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009.
"We are glad to put 2009 behind us. In spite of the challenging conditions the company performed well," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO. "The extraordinary efforts we made to right size the company and contain costs in late 2008 and early 2009 allowed us to battle through a very difficult year and come out of it vigorous and healthy. We were able to meet our financial obligations comfortably, make investments in several new products and services to enhance our revenue stream, and reduce our debt obligations by more than $85 million despite a decline in annual sales of more than 28%."
Jonathan Mather, Chief Financial Officer, said, "While we did not see an upturn in construction-related business during the fourth quarter, we were happy to see slightly stronger sales than we anticipated. Aggressively managing the company to control costs provided us the flexibility and focus to ensure we made the most of every bit of activity in the market."
