Todd Welstad, Chief Operating Officer, stated, “2012 was a good year for Command Center. It was the second profitable year posted by the company since it was first organized in 2002 and represented sequential year-to-year profitability growth over 2011. Our teams executed well, increasing market share both in our existing territories and by expanding into new markets including post-disaster recovery work.
“Our teams consistently met their objective to connect qualified job seekers with temporary, on-demand and permanent placements,” said Mr. Welstad. “Command continues to execute on its commitment to deliver quality employees to our customers, which allowed the company to grow gross margins from 22.8% in 2011 to 25.3% in 2012. SG&A expense in 2012 was 22.4% of revenue compared to 21.6% in 2011. The increase was the result of rebuilding infrastructure that will be necessary to continue to support the type of revenue growth that we were able to achieve in 2012. Our strengthened infrastructure positions us well for continued growth in 2013. While we invested in the Command platform, due to a focus on increased margins, we were also able to report our second consecutive year of positive bottom line growth and improved net income as a percentage of revenue to 1.6% in 2012 compared to 1.0% in 2011.”
