Cross Country Healthcare Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

“Lastly, I would like to thank all of our former clinical trial services employees for their contributions to Cross Country over the past dozen years. We wish them every success in the future. Following the sale of this business, the Company has a debt-free balance sheet and more than $25 million in cash. Moving forward, we are sharply focused on our nurse, allied and physician staffing businesses, which we believe have bright futures given the changing healthcare environment and aging U.S. population,” added Mr. Boshart.

Nurse and Allied Staffing

For the fourth quarter of 2012, the nurse and allied staffing business segment (travel and per diem nurse and allied health staffing) generated revenue of $70.9 million, a 1% increase from the prior year quarter and a 2% increase sequentially from the third quarter of 2012. The increase in both periods was due entirely to higher bill rates. Contribution income, defined as (loss) income from operations before depreciation, amortization, impairment charges and corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting segment, was $4.0 million, a decrease of 27% year-over-year, but a 36% increase sequentially. The contribution income margin (defined as a percentage of segment revenue) was 5.7% in the fourth quarter of 2012, a decrease of 210 basis points year-over-year, but an increase of 140 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to the aforementioned professional liability expense along with higher health insurance claims. The sequential increase was due to lower workers’ compensation expenses and expansion of the bill-pay spread.

Segment staffing volume was essentially flat both year-over-year and sequentially. Travel staffing volume decreased 1% year-over-year and decreased slightly sequentially while per diem staffing volume increased 7% year-over-year and 3% sequentially. The average revenue per FTE per day for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $314, a 1% increase year-over-year and 2% sequentially. Similarly, the travel nurse staffing average hourly bill rate increased 2% both year-over-year and sequentially.
