LSC Communications Reports Second-Quarter 2017 Results and Updates Full-Year 2017 Guidance

CHICAGO--()--LSC Communications, Inc. (NYSE: LKSD) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2017.

2Q 2017 Highlights:

  • Net sales of $848 million compared to $906 million in the second quarter of 2016
  • GAAP net income of $5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP net income of $21 million, or $0.59 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $82 million, or 9.7% of net sales, compared to $93 million, or 10.3% of net sales, in the second quarter of 2016
  • Company updates full-year 2017 guidance

“In spite of disappointing educational book demand, we are pleased with our overall operating performance in the second quarter, which reflects our strong focus on productivity and cost control. As expected, we saw a significant improvement in our earnings trend compared to recent quarters,” said Thomas J. Quinlan III, LSC Communications’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to have the talented people of Fairrington Transportation on board and look forward to CREEL Printing joining LSC Communications in the near future. We are updating our full year guidance to reflect the expected impact of these acquisitions and ongoing trends in our business.”

Net Sales

Second quarter net sales were $848 million, down $58 million, or 6.4%, from the second quarter of 2016. After adjusting for the December 2, 2016 acquisition of Continuum and the March 1, 2017 acquisition of Hudson Yards, changes in foreign exchange rates, and pass-through paper sales, organic net sales decreased 6.8% from the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in organic net sales was due to lower volume and price declines in both the Print and Office Products segments.

GAAP Net Income

Second quarter 2017 net income was $5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $28 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016. The second quarter of 2017 included $17 million of interest expense primarily related to debt issued in connection with the October 1 separation from RR Donnelley & Sons Company, while no interest expense was allocated to LSC Communications in the second quarter of 2016. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2017 reflected tax benefits associated with the reorganization of certain entities. Also, second quarter net income included net of tax charges of $16 million and $3 million in 2017 and 2016, respectively, both of which are excluded from the presentation of non-GAAP net income. Additional details regarding the amount and nature of these adjustments and other items are included in the attached schedules.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Income

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2017 was $82 million, or 9.7% of net sales, compared to $93 million, or 10.3% of net sales, in the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to volume declines and price pressure in the Print and Office Products segments as well as product mix within the Print segment, partially offset by ongoing productivity and cost control initiatives.

Non-GAAP net income totaled $21 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017 compared to non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of 2016 of $31 million, or $0.97 per diluted share. The second quarter of 2017 included $17 million of interest expense primarily related to debt issued in connection with the separation from RR Donnelley, while no interest expense was allocated to LSC Communications in the second quarter of 2016. The non-GAAP effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2017 reflected tax benefits associated with the reorganization of certain entities. Reconciliations of net income to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income are presented in the attached schedules.

2017 Guidance

The Company’s updated full-year guidance for 2017, in the table below, includes the impact of its announced acquisitions:

             
      Current Guidance     Previous Guidance
Net sales     $3.55 to $3.60 billion     $3.55 to $3.65 billion
Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin     9.60% to 10.00%     9.75% to 10.25%
Depreciation and amortization     $155 to $165 million     $155 to $165 million
Interest expense     $68 to $72 million     $68 to $72 million
Non-GAAP effective tax rate     33% to 36%     33% to 36%
Capital expenditures     $60 to $65 million     $60 to $65 million
Free cash flow (1)     $125 to $155 million     $125 to $155 million
       

(1) Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures

Certain components of the guidance given in the table above are provided on a non-GAAP basis only, without providing a reconciliation to guidance provided on a GAAP basis. Information is presented in this manner, consistent with SEC rules, because the preparation of such a reconciliation could not be accomplished without "unreasonable efforts." The Company does not have access to certain information that would be necessary to provide such a reconciliation, including non-recurring items that are not indicative of the Company's ongoing operations. Such items include, but are not limited to, restructuring charges, impairment charges, pension settlement charges, acquisition-related expenses, gains or losses on investments and business disposals, losses on debt extinguishment and other similar gains or losses not reflective of the Company's ongoing operations. The Company does not believe that excluding such items is likely to be significant to an assessment of the Company's ongoing operations, given that such excluded items are not indicators of business performance.

Use of non-GAAP Information

This news release contains certain non-GAAP measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures, such as non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and free cash flow, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, provide useful information about the Company’s operating results and liquidity and enhance the overall ability to assess the Company’s financial performance. The Company uses these measures, together with other measures of performance under GAAP, to compare the relative performance of operations in planning, budgeting and reviewing the performance of its business. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and free cash flow allow investors to make a more meaningful comparison between the Company’s core business operating results over different periods of time. The Company believes that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and free cash flow, when viewed with the Company’s results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information about the Company’s business without regard to potential distortions. By eliminating potential differences in results of operations between periods caused by factors such as depreciation and amortization methods, historic cost and age of assets, financing and capital structures, taxation positions or regimes, restructuring, impairment and other charges and gain or loss on certain equity investments and asset sales, the Company believes that non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income can provide useful additional basis for comparing the current performance of the underlying operations being evaluated. By adjusting for the level of capital investment in operations, the Company believes that free cash flow can provide useful additional basis for understanding the Company’s ability to generate cash after capital investment and provides a comparison to peers with differing capital intensity.
