Management Commentary
"As our strong earnings per share performance suggests, we experienced continued sales growth across all of our business lines, driven primarily by MPS and CDIM," said K. "Suri" Suriyakumar, Chairman, President and CEO of ARC Document Solutions. "We also saw notable increases in our AIM business, and stronger-than-usual quarterly performance in Equipment and Supplies sales out of China. Despite the growth in lower margin equipment and supplies sales during the period, we grew gross profit by more than four percent."

Mr. Suriyakumar continued, "Combined with our continued strength in cash generation, our second quarter sales performance reflects incremental, but steady progress in the adoption of our new business lines. While we are eager to accelerate sales growth, it is taking time to gain traction in our new product lines. Even as successes emerge, new accounts are not likely to contribute significantly to year-over-year growth in 2015, but rather to 2016 and beyond. We are confident that we can demonstrate the outstanding value of our new solutions over the next 12 to 18 months, and build momentum for the future."

Jorge Avalos, ARC Document Solutions' Chief Financial Officer said, "Sales growth and capital structure improvements both contributed to our strong earnings in the second quarter. Adjusted cash flow from operations of $16.9 million grew 7.6% year-over-year during the period, allowing us to double our mandatory principal payments on ARC's senior debt, further reducing the company's leverage ratio. Also, our initiatives to improve sales and marketing began demonstrating their value via impressive sales growth in AIM and in some of the digital services we sell as a part of our CDIM portfolio. We expect these strategic investments to continue to add value in future quarters."
