Michael Elich - President and CEO
Good afternoon. I appreciate your hanging with me through this afternoon. I am glad I am not the only one here. So that's a good sign. I will try to keep it light and have a little bit of fun with it. But I wanted to introduce you first of all to BBSI. I am not sure how much everybody knows about the company but it’s been around for many years over the last 10 years. We’ve reformatted it a little bit of who we are in that timeframe. We’ve have grown, find ourselves in a position today, where a year ago our founder passed away and I was the operating COO for the company. I stepped in to the role and over the last 12 months we’ve had very successful transition and continue to move things forward. I will leave you to read our disclaimer. I am sure most of you have done that already.
Just looking at some operating statistics for our company as you just see, over the last 12 months we’ve had quite an appreciation in our stock value, still holds pretty strong balance sheet with earnings being up, cash begin up, revenue growth as well. So who are we? I like to look at us as a little bit of a hybrid. If you were to take the best of what to staffing industry, the payroll industry and the PEO industry has offered and combine that into a company that utilizes the resources of those companies, we take those resources apply them to our clients to help build the management platform that helps them in those operations. And those business owners leverage their internal resources more effectively to grow their companies.
