Second Quarter Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2012 increased 9.8% over the second quarter of 2011 due to an 8.3% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per month and a 1.3% increase in revenues per worksite employee per month.

Gross profit results included better than expected results from workers’ compensation and payroll taxes, including a $2.9 million payroll-related tax credit, offset by an adjustment for higher than expected runoff of health insurance claims incurred in prior quarters.

This increase included costs associated with the Insperity Championship TM professional golf tournament, moved from its historical fourth quarter date to the second quarter.
