BBSI Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Q2 Net Revenues Up 17% to $151.1 Million Drives 23% Increase in Diluted Earnings per Share to $0.98

VANCOUVER, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Barrett Business Services, Inc. ("BBSI" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: BBSI), a leading provider of business management solutions, reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Summary vs. Year-Ago Quarter

  • Net revenues up 17% to $151.1 million
  • Gross revenues up 18% to $798.4 million
  • Net income increased 24% to $7.3 million
  • Diluted earnings per share increased 23% to $0.98

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Net revenues in the second quarter of 2014 increased 17% to $151.1 million compared to $128.8 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Total non-GAAP gross revenues in the second quarter of 2014 increased 18% to $798.4 million compared to $675.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 (see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below). The increase was due primarily to the continued build in the Company's co-employed client count and same-store sales growth.

Net income in the second quarter of 2014 increased 24% to $7.3 million compared to net income of $5.9 million in the year-ago quarter. Diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2014 increased 23% to $0.98 compared to $0.80 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter.

At June 30, 2014, the Company's cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, and restricted securities totaled $146.1 million compared to $143.2 million at December 31, 2013. At June 30, 2014, the Company had no outstanding borrowings on its revolving credit facility.

Management Commentary
"The growth in our business for the second quarter of 2014 is a direct result of BBSI's continued brand maturation in the marketplace," said Michael Elich, president and CEO of BBSI. "Complemented by healthy organic growth from our existing client base and strong referral channels, we continue to drive new business and maintain our high client retention rate.

"Looking towards the second half of the year, BBSI remains well-positioned to deliver another strong year for our shareholders, despite the client backfilling process we have undertaken. We also continue to expand and invest in our infrastructure and internal talent, which we believe will help us ultimately support a much larger, more mature company."

Third Quarter 2014 Outlook

For the third quarter of 2014, the Company expects gross revenues to increase at least 14% to range between $870 million and $890 million compared to $764.1 million in the third quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per common share in the third quarter of 2014 is expected to range between $1.30 and $1.35 compared to $1.21 in the third quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per common share in the third quarter of 2013 included a positive impact of approximately $0.08 per common share from a more favorable tax rate compared to the estimated tax rate for the third quarter of 2014.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company is disclosing non-GAAP gross revenues.

The Company reports its Professional Employer Service revenues on a net basis because it is not the primary obligor for the services provided by the Company's co-employed clients to their customers. The gross revenues and cost of revenues information below, although not in accordance with GAAP, is presented for comparison purposes and because management believes such information is more informative as to the level of the Company's business activity and more useful in managing its operations.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures.
