On Assignment Reports Results For Second Quarter 2013

“Our strong revenue growth was mainly driven by our IT businesses, Apex Systems and Oxford, which account for 80 percent of our business. Our IT businesses grew 18.4 percent year-over-year on a pro forma basis and 8.7 percent sequentially. In that sector of the market, we are the second largest provider of staffing services and we continue to grow faster than the overall market reflecting the benefit of our scale and operating models. We also believe we are benefiting from a shift in spending toward IT staffing and away from other IT services delivery models, such as consulting and offshoring, as CIOs continue to focus sharply on project flexibility and accountability and cost control.

“Our non-IT segments, which account for 20 percent of our overall business, grew 4.7 percent year-over-year and 2.2 percent sequentially. While these segments reported modest growth, we have not yet seen the returns on our investments in sales staff and recruiters. We are evaluating various actions in an effort to improve the growth rate and overall performance of these units.”

Dameris continued, “In May, we put in place a new $500 million credit facility. This facility improves our borrowing capacity and flexibility for acquisitions and stock repurchases and results in significant interest savings.”

Second Quarter 2013 Results

Revenues for the quarter were $417.9 million, up 57.2 percent year-over-year and 7.4 percent sequentially. On a pro forma basis assuming the acquisition of Apex Systems had occurred at the beginning of 2012, revenues were up 15.4 percent year-over-year. Virtually all the growth in revenues was from the Information Technology businesses (Apex Systems and Oxford), which grew 18.4 percent year-over-year on a pro forma basis and 8.7 percent sequentially.

Gross profit was $124.6 million, up 47.4 percent year-over-year and up 10.0 percent sequentially. This increase was due to growth in revenues and the inclusion of the operating results of Apex Systems for a full quarter. The year-over-year compression in gross margin was mainly attributable to the inclusion of Apex Systems for a full quarter, which has a lower gross margin than the Company's other business segments, lower permanent placement revenues and higher growth of lower-margin services.
