Additionally, during October 2013, the Firm commenced a plan to streamline its leadership and support structure to better align a higher percentage of roles closer to the customer. As a result of this realignment, the Firm is expected to incur one-time pre-tax charges related to severance, benefits and related costs in the range of $6 to $7 million during the fourth quarter. Additionally, the Firm expects these actions to improve quarterly earnings per share in the range of $0.03 to $0.05 per share from a reduction in Selling, General and Administrative expenses once all actions are complete.
David L. Dunkel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are very pleased with our performance in the third quarter, as Kforce achieved record high quarterly revenues of $299.7 million and earnings per share of 27 cents driven by Tech Flex, our largest business segment, whose growth accelerated to 14.2% year-over-year. Given the many positive growth characteristics driving Tech Flex, we continue to invest in this service line. All of our businesses grew sequentially for the second consecutive quarter, driving year-over-year total revenue growth above 10%. The talent investments we have made are taking hold, demand is strong, and we expect an acceleration of year-over-year growth in Q4."
