Management also plans to reinstate dividends and share repurchases. ARC's 2020 third quarter earnings report will be presented on November 4, 2020.
"The market for signage, color and environmental graphics is proving to be robust, as we expected. After reconfiguring the business earlier this year, we are positioned perfectly to take advantage of these sales trends and leverage our lower cost structure," said Suri Suriyakumar, CEO of ARC.

The company expects to report third quarter revenue in excess of $70 million. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be more than $12 million, beating its year-over-year performance and exceeding its second quarter performance by more than a million dollars. Based on its continuing strong cash flow performance, ARC is reviewing the timing for the reinstatement of its four-cent annual dividend, as well as a continuation of share repurchases in the open market.
