CBIZ Reports 2013 First Quarter Results

REVENUE INCREASES 6.3%

CLEVELAND, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE: CBZ) today announced results for the first-quarter ended March 31, 2013. 

CBIZ reported revenue of $234.8 million for the first-quarter ended March 31, 2013, an increase of $14.0 million, or 6.3%, compared with $220.8 million reported for the first quarter of 2012.  Newly acquired operations contributed $14.3 million, or 6.4% to revenue in the 2013 first quarter, compared with the same period a year ago. Same-unit organic revenue decreased by $0.3 million, or 0.1% for the first quarter 2013, compared with the same period a year ago.  Income from continuing operations was $18.3 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared to $18.8 million, or $0.38 per diluted share reported in the first quarter of 2012.   First quarter 2012 results included a gain of $2.5 million, or $0.03 earnings per diluted share, on the sale of the Company's wealth management business. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $41.5 million, compared to $38.9 million for the 2012 first quarter.

Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, which includes certain non-cash charges and credits to income from continuing operations, was $0.54 per diluted share for the first-quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared with $0.49 per diluted share a year ago. First quarter 2012 Non-GAAP earnings excluded a $0.03 per diluted share gain on the sale of the Company's wealth management business that was sold in 2011.  A schedule which reconciles Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share with GAAP earnings per diluted share is attached. 

The outstanding balance on the Company's $275.0 million unsecured bank line of credit at March 31, 2013 was $223.0 million compared with a balance of $208.9 million at December 31, 2012.  During the quarter, the Company used $1.1 million for acquisition-related payments and made no share repurchases.  

Steven L. Gerard, CBIZ Chairman and CEO stated, "The acquisition activity that occurred in 2012 was consistent with our growth strategy and is having a very positive impact in 2013 as the results are in line with expectations.  Organic revenue growth was slower than expected in the first quarter primarily due to weather-related closures we experienced in several major offices in the Midwest and Northeast regions combined with a late start to tax-related work within our Financial Services group.  Some of this work was deferred until April and we expect to recover the balance of this revenue throughout the remainder of the year.  We continue to expect improving trends in organic revenue growth this year with total revenue growth in a range of 7% to 9% compared with 2012.  In addition, we continue to expect a 12% to 15% increase in earnings per diluted share compared with the normalized $0.58 reported for 2012," concluded Mr. Gerard.

CBIZ will host a conference call later this morning to discuss its results.  The call will be webcast in a listen-only mode over the internet for the media and the public, and can be accessed at www.cbiz.com.

"Operating expenses - unallocated" also include gains or losses attributable to the assets held in the Company's deferred compensation plan.

The Company believes Non-GAAP earnings and Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share more clearly illustrate the impact of certain non-cash charges and credits to "income from continuing operations" and are a useful measure for the Company and its analysts. Non-GAAP earnings is defined as income from continuing operations excluding: depreciation and amortization, non-cash interest expense, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and adjustments to the fair value of contingent consideration related to prior acquisitions. Additionally, for 2012 the after tax gain related to the gain on sale of the Company's wealth management business that was sold in 2011 has been excluded from Non-GAAP earnings. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share is calculated by dividing Non-GAAP earnings by the number of weighted average diluted common shares outstanding for the period indicated. Non-GAAP earnings and Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be regarded as a replacement or alternative to any measurement of performance under generally accepted accounting principles.

Capital spending was $1.7 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

DSO is provided for continuing operations and represents accounts receivable (before the allowance for doubtful accounts) and unbilled revenue (net of realization adjustments) at the end of the period, divided by trailing twelve month daily revenue. The Company has included DSO data because such data is commonly used as a performance measure by analysts and investors and as a measure of the Company's ability to collect on receivables in a timely manner. DSO should not be regarded as an alternative or replacement to any measurement of performance under generally accepted accounting principles. DSO at March 31, 2012 was 90.
