Kforce Reports Record Revenues Of $305.3 Million And Earnings Of $0.19 Per Share

TAMPA, Fla., April 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kforce Inc. (Nasdaq: KFRC), a provider of professional staffing services and solutions, today announced results for its first quarter of 2014. Revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 were $305.3 million compared to $302.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, an increase of 0.8%, and compared to $265.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, an increase of 14.9%. In the quarter ended March 31, 2014, Kforce reported net income of $6.2 million, or $0.19 per share, versus adjusted net income of $9.1 million, or $0.28 per share, which is defined as net income before an $11.9 million pre-tax realignment charge and a $14.5 million pre-tax goodwill impairment charge, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. On a GAAP basis, Kforce reported a net loss of $8.2 million, or a loss of $0.25 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. Net income and earnings per share for the first quarter of 2014 increased 102% and 111%, respectively, versus net income of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per share, for the first quarter of 2013.

David L. Dunkel, Chairman and CEO, said, "We are very pleased with our performance in the first quarter of 2014, as Kforce achieved record quarterly revenues of $305.3 million and earnings per share of 19 cents. Our first quarter growth was broadly driven by the strong growth rates for our Flex staffing businesses in Tech, FA and HIM, which had year-over-year increases of 18.2%, 14.5% and 25.3%, respectively. We believe these growth rates continue to demonstrate the fruits of our relentless pursuit of gaining customer share."

Mr. Dunkel continued, "We believe that professional staffing has entered a new age with growth being driven by clients increasingly utilizing a flexible staffing solution to mitigate employment and regulatory risk, as well as the ubiquitous nature of technology today across our clients' business platforms. Against a backdrop of tempered GDP growth, we continue to see a disproportionate share of job growth coming from the temporary staffing sector. The temporary penetration rate is now at 2.06%, surpassing the prior all time high of 2.03%. Knowledge workers are in high demand as the unemployment rate among college-degreed workers is currently 3.4%, about half of the overall U.S. rate of unemployment, and is substantially lower in several of the skill sets Kforce specializes in, particularly in technology. We believe that these secular shifts in the labor market, along with our domestic revenue footprint, have positioned the Firm for even greater future success. I want to thank all of our clients, consultants and employees for making the first quarter of 2014 a very successful quarter for Kforce."
