The company also reiterated its full-year 2014 guidance for net sales, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin and free cash flow.
"The positive momentum we experienced late in the first quarter carried through into the second quarter, where we returned to positive year-over-year organic revenue growth, generated higher EBITDA and reduced our total debt in the quarter by approximately $70 million," said Thomas J. Quinlan III, RR Donnelley's president and CEO. "As we begin the second half of the year, our year-to-date performance, including the on-boarding and integration of our acquisitions that closed in the first quarter, keeps us on track to deliver our full-year guidance. Our expectation for free cash flow, in the range of $400 million to $500 million, allows us to continue to migrate toward our targeted gross leverage range of 2.25x to 2.75x on a long-term sustainable basis."
