Robert G. Burton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated:
"Our business continued to improve throughout the third quarter, as we delivered stronger performance across our operations. Our continued focus on being proactive in managing our cost structure combined with modest strengthening across our revenue stream led to improved results for the quarter. Revenues remained in line with our expectations, as we experienced market strengthening that enabled us to achieve sequential revenue growth over the second quarter. Despite limited sales visibility, we were once again able to match our cost structure with our revenue stream, delivering a Non-GAAP operating income margin of 9.0%. We continue to focus on generating strong cash flows which has allowed us to reduce our debt by $94 million over the past twelve months."
Mr. Burton concluded:
"The third quarter marked an important period for the Company as we continue to see stabilization in the key product markets we serve, including labels, packaging, journals, envelopes and print. This market improvement, combined with the cost actions we implemented earlier this year and the completion of our previously announced acquisition of Nashua, has Cenveo well positioned to weather this economic storm and be poised for future growth. We will continue to invest in these key product markets via prudent capital investments and highly strategic and accretive acquisitions to strengthen our leadership position.
"As we prepare to exit 2009, I am proud of the hard work and efforts of our entire organization, in light of the many economic challenges we faced. We have performed as well as we could in this recessionary environment, never losing our focus on our customers and shareholders. As I've also said before, Cenveo's short and long term success is built around having an experienced management team that knows how to deliver results in the diverse niche businesses we operate. Going forward, I believe that our fourth quarter results will show continued improvement over the third quarter and that 2010 will be significantly stronger than 2009 from a revenue and profitability standpoint."
