CTPartners Executive Search Inc. (NYSE MKT:CTP), a leading global retained executive search firm, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine-months, ended September 30, 2012.

Revenue for the third quarter was $32.0 million, a 5.5% increase from $30.3 million reported in last year’s third quarter. Revenues decreased sequentially from $33.8 million reported in the second quarter 2012. On a GAAP basis, the operating loss was $551,000, or fully diluted net loss per share of $0.04. Excluding the one-time reorganization charge announced on August 9, 2012, operating income was $413,289, or fully diluted earnings of $0.04 per share. The Company reported operating income of $98,000, or fully diluted earnings per share of $0.01, for the third quarter last year. Revenue and operating income per share excluding the reorganization charge were at the high end of the previously announced guidance for the third quarter 2012. A reconciliation of reported to adjusted results, excluding reorganization charges, is included in this press release.

“Our solid revenue growth of 5.5% to $32.0 million reflects our growing position in the global executive recruitment industry,” said Brian Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer. “During the quarter, we experienced strong contributions from our newer Industrial and Consumer practices which complemented the positive growth we saw in our Life Sciences industry practice. Financial Services revenue was up slightly over last year demonstrating our ability to move quickly into market segments where executive recruitment services were in demand. We reduced G&A expense in the quarter and began to realize the operational and financial benefits of our recent reorganization. We continue to operate in a challenging market and will continue to take the necessary steps to continue to deliver above market revenue growth and improved profitability when the global economy improves.”
