General Employment Enterprises, Inc. Provides Status On Filing Quarterly Report On Form 10-Q And Annual Report On Form 10-K

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Employment Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE MKT: JOB) today announced it will not be able to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 within five calendar days following the prescribed due date of February 14, 2013, due to the fact it has not completed the audit of its financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.

As previously disclosed the Company dismissed BDO USA, LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm and engaged Friedman LLP as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm.  The Company has made good progress to date on the year end audit and expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 on or before April 1, 2013.  The Company believes it can file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 within two weeks thereafter.  There can be no assurance, however, that these filings will be made within the anticipated period.

Commenting on the Company's status, Michael Schroering, Chairman of the Board & CEO stated, "We continue to work through the year end audit with Friedman, LLP, which has been working diligently to complete the audits.  We reversed negative operating performance from the prior year with strong revenue greater than $13.5 million and an operating profit greater than $100,000 for the three months ended, December 31, 2012.  Net income should also be greater than $100,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2012.  With the growth in sales, the Company's debt increased by approximately $400,000 to approximately $3.0 million.  We expect total assets to be approximately $11.4 million and shareholders' equity to be $4.2 million."  Mr. Schroering also commented, "More than any one factor, we believe the performance improvements reflected in these figures are the result of hard work and leadership by everyone throughout the Company's operations, along with improving job conditions generally, which should combine to strengthen the business going forward.  We regret the untimely completion of our audit and financial reports, but we are also heartened by the diligence of our new auditors to get the job done as expeditiously as possible, and we believe this situation will soon be put behind us."
