Management Comments

“Our performance in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 reflected strong contributions by select core practices—notably the Competition and Marakon practices,” said Paul Maleh, CRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “However, our second-quarter results were below expectations as several underperforming practice areas affected CRA’s overall performance. The utilization this quarter was 70%, up from 68% in the sequential first quarter but lower than the 74% level in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. To better position the Company for growth, we are taking decisive actions which should intensify the focus of our portfolio, increase the cohesiveness of our services, and significantly improve our margins and profitability. We are in the process of eliminating two underperforming business units while restructuring others.”
