HOUSTON, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Consolidated Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: CGX) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Revenue for the June 2013 quarter was $236.7 million, compared to $238.3 million for the same quarter last year, as an expected decline in election related business was partially offset by a 1% increase in same-store sales. Adjusted Operating Income increased 211% for the quarter to $8.7 million or 3.7% of revenue, compared to $2.8 million, or 1.2% of revenue last year. Adjusted Net Income increased 390% to $4.7 million for the quarter, compared to $1.0 million for the prior year. Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share for the June quarter increased 444% to $.49, compared to $.09 last year. Adjusted EBITDA increased 17% to $25.0 million for the quarter and Free Cash Flow was $14.4 million.

Operating income during the June 2013 quarter was $6.9 million and included other charges of $1.1 million, primarily related to accretion of the discount of liability attributable to our withdrawal from certain multi-employer pension plans and the impairment of certain long-lived assets. Operating income for the prior year quarter was $.5 million and included $1.7 million in other charges, primarily related to relocating certain production facilities. Net income for the June 2013 quarter was $3.6 million or $.37 diluted income per share, compared to a net loss of $.4 million or $.04 diluted loss per share last year.

Joe R. Davis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Consolidated Graphics, commented "Compared to the prior year, we improved Adjusted Operating Income and same-store sales during the seasonally weak June quarter despite only moderate economic growth.  Our best in class employees, technology and printing solutions gives us a competitive edge and many opportunities for further growth as the economy continues to improve."

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the attached tables and in the related Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Form 8-K also includes the basis for management's use of these non-GAAP financial measures.

The conference call will be simultaneously broadcast live over the Internet on our website (www.cgx.com) and a subsequent archive of such call will also be available on our website.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, in which the Company discusses factors it believes may affect its performance or results in the future. Forward-looking statements are all statements other than historical facts, such as statements regarding assumptions, expectations, beliefs and projections about future events or conditions. You can generally identify forward-looking statements by the appearance in such a statement of words like "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "might," "plan," "potential," "predict," "forecast," "project," "should" or "will" or other comparable words or the negative of such words. The accuracy of the Company's assumptions, expectations, beliefs and projections depends on events or conditions that change over time and are thus susceptible to change based on actual experience, new developments and known and unknown risks, including those created by general market conditions, competition and the possibility that events may occur beyond the Company's control, which may limit its ability to maintain or improve its operating results or financial condition or acquire additional printing businesses. The Company gives no assurance that the forward-looking statements will prove to be correct and does not undertake any duty to update them. The Company's actual future results might differ from the forward-looking statements made in this press release for a variety of reasons, which include weakness in the economy, financial stability of its customers, the sustained growth of its digital printing business, seasonality of election-related business, its ability to adequately manage business expenses, including labor costs, the unfavorable outcome of legal proceedings, the lack of or adequacy of insurance coverage for its operations, the continued availability of raw materials at affordable prices, retention of its key management and operating personnel, satisfactory labor relations, the potential for additional goodwill impairment charges, or charges related to our withdrawal from multi-employer pension plans, its ability to identify new acquisition opportunities, negotiate and finance such acquisitions on acceptable terms and successfully absorb and manage such acquisitions in a timely and efficient manner, as well as other risks described under the heading "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and the risk factors and cautionary statements described in the other documents the Company files or furnishes from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K. Should one or more of the foregoing risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the Company's underlying assumptions, expectations, beliefs or projections  prove incorrect, the Company's actual results may vary materially from those anticipated in its forward-looking statements, and its business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.

Regulation G Reconciliation

This press release also contains references to the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as earnings, or net income, before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, goodwill impairment charges, other charges and accretion of pension liability, share-based compensation expense, non-cash foreign currency transaction gains and losses and net losses/gains from asset dispositions, Free Cash Flow, which we define as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures plus proceeds from assets dispositions, Adjusted Operating Income, which we define as operating income before goodwill impairment charges, other charges and accretion of pension liability, share-based compensation expense, and non-cash foreign currency transaction net gains and losses, Adjusted Operating Margin, which we define as Adjusted Operating Income divided by sales, Adjusted Net Income, which we define as net income before goodwill impairment charges, other charges and accretion of pension liability, share-based compensation expense,  non-cash foreign currency transaction net gain and losses, all net of tax, and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share, which we define as Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the tables below. Management's opinion regarding the usefulness of these non-GAAP financial measures to investors and a description of the ways in which management used such measures can be found in the related Current Report on Form 8-K we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
