“We are pleased with the increase in Business Performance Advisors and the outlook for growth acceleration in 2014 and beyond,” said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief executive officer. “We are well-positioned to capitalize on the opportunities provided by our adjacent business technology offerings and from the small business market disruption we expect over the next several years as a result of health care reform.”
Fourth Quarter Results
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased 4.6% over the fourth quarter of 2012 due to a 1.1% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per month and a 3.5% increase in revenues per worksite employee per month.
Gross profit decreased 3.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 to $90.0 million. This decline was primarily the result of a higher deficit in the benefits cost center, which was partially offset by a higher gross profit contribution from our adjacent businesses.
