Huron Consulting Group Announces Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Huron Consulting Group Inc. (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

“Huron’s two largest business segments continued to benefit from attractive market conditions,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer and president, Huron Consulting Group. “Our Health and Education Consulting segment again had solid utilization in the second quarter, and we continue to be successful in hiring new personnel to meet market demand. As expected, performance-based fees in the healthcare practice were lower in Q2 2012 compared to second quarter last year, when performance-based revenue was the highest of any quarter. Our Legal Consulting segment continues to benefit from e-discovery needs among global corporations resulting from large-scale litigation and investigations. We expect this segment to be further strengthened by the recently announced acquisitions of AdamsGrayson and Ascertus. The market for Huron’s services remains vibrant, and we are looking forward to a strong second half as we assist our clients with the complexities and challenges stemming from this uncertain economy.”
