Oppenheimer reiterates its Perform rating on American Reprographics (NYSE: ARC) following an in-line quarterly performance cautious outlook for 2012.
Oppenheimer notes, "ARC delivered adjusted 4Q11 EPS of $0.00 vs. our est/consensus/4Q10/3Q11 of $0.00/$0.04/-$0.03/$0.02. Reported EPS was -$0.07 on one-time items. Revenue of $102M topped our est/consensus of $99M/$101M. We're reducing our 2012-13E EPS to $0.07/$0.14 from $0.08/$0.16, respectively, on an outlook that the top line does very little beyond net stabilizing over the coming few quarters given low visibility into ARC's key non-residential construction markets. This stems largely from ARC's cautious 2012 EPS guidance of $0.05-0.10, versus consensus of $0.22E."
ARC closed at $6.52 a share on Tuesday (February 21st)
