FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Valassis Announces Results for the Third Quarter Ended Sept. 30, 2012

Livonia, Mich., Oct. 25, 2012: Valassis (NYSE: VCI) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2012. Third-quarter 2012 revenues were $523.8 million compared to $528.4 million in the prior year quarter. Third-quarter 2012 net earnings were $36.7 million, an increase of 33.5% from $27.5 million in the prior year quarter. This increase was primarily the result of the previously announced cost reductions and a favorable income tax adjustment resulting from the expiration of certain tax reserves. Third-quarter 2012 diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.90, an increase of 55.2% from $0.58 in the prior year quarter due to improved earnings coupled with a lower share base as a result of share repurchases. Third-quarter 2012 adjusted EBITDA* was $75.2 million, an increase of 7.7% from $69.8 million in the prior year quarter.

“This quarter, we delivered strong growth in EPS and adjusted EBITDA*,” said Rob Mason, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Notable gains in our Free-standing Insert business, ongoing operational improvements within Shared Mail, and continued cost containment efforts were key drivers that contributed to our results.”

Some additional highlights include:

 

   

Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) Costs: Third-quarter 2012 SG&A costs were $73.4 million compared to prior year quarter costs of $80.5 million. This 8.8% decrease was primarily due to restructuring and other cost reduction measures that took place at the end of the second quarter.

 

   

Capital Expenditures: Capital expenditures were $4.0 million for the third quarter of 2012 and $15.8 million year to date.

 

   

Stock Repurchases: During third quarter 2012, we repurchased $21.2 million, or 0.8 million shares, of our common stock at an average price of $25.34 per share. Year to date, we have repurchased $87.1 million, or 4.1 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $21.08 per share under our stock repurchase program.

 

   

Liquidity:

 

   

We reduced total debt by $3.8 million during third-quarter 2012, and we ended the quarter with net debt (total debt less cash) of $501.0 million.

 

   

At Sept. 30, 2012, we had $90.3 million in cash.

Outlook

Based on our plan and current outlook, we are updating our full-year 2012 guidance as follows:

 

   

diluted EPS of $2.98 (previously $2.86) which reflects a favorable income tax adjustment of $0.12;

 

   

excluding one-time charges, adjusted diluted EPS* of $3.23 (previously $3.11) which reflects a favorable income tax adjustment of $0.12; and

 

   

capital expenditures to be between $20 million and $22 million (previously approximately $26 million).

The company has decided to no longer use diluted cash EPS as a financial performance measure.
