Management Commentary:
"Our revenues are still being pressured by the lack of new projects in the construction market, but our MPS initiatives are in high gear. We have had double-digit growth for the fourth quarter in a row, which we see as strong validation for our decision to pursue this line of business," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC. "Our aggressive efforts to drive sales across all lines of business are starting to show results. Not only have we seen significant gains in MPS, but we are also starting to see incremental growth in digital services thanks to our broad technology portfolio and the increasing adoption of technology by our customers. If these trends continue, we expect to see our growth rate increase later this year."

"While our revenue in traditional services remains under pressure, our operating income margin showed strong year-over-year growth due to the actions taken by management over the past year to better match costs with our revenue," said John Toth, ARC's Chief Financial Officer. "Additionally, our cash position and cash flow remain strong, enhanced by access to our undrawn senior secured credit facility. We are also aggressively managing our capital expenditures -- which are roughly flat year-over-year -- even though our FM/MPS revenue is growing at double digits."

ARC affirms annual adjusted earnings per share in 2012 to be in the range of $0.05 to $0.10 on a fully-diluted basis, and annual cash flow from operations to be in the range of $40 million to $50 million.
