Financial Results Comments

“During the third quarter, we experienced lower-than-expected revenue due to project completions and slowdown in activity of several large projects within our Management Consulting business,” said Paul Maleh, CRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As a result of the scale of these engagements, the contribution of the Management Consulting business was below expectations for the quarter, particularly in our overseas business. International revenue accounted for 24% of the quarter’s revenue compared with 29% in the first half of fiscal 2011 and 28% in the third quarter of fiscal 2010.”
