IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CorVel Corporation (NASDAQ:CRVL) announced the results for the quarter and six months ended September 30, 2016. Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 were $128.2 million, up 3% from $124.5 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Earnings per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 were $0.35 and were $0.41 for the same quarter of the prior year.

Revenues for the six months ended September 30, 2016 were $256.7 million, up 2% from $251.4 million in the same period of the prior year. Earnings per share for the six months ended September 30, 2016 were $0.73 and were $0.75 for the same period of the prior year.

Revenue growth for the quarter was driven by a 13% increase in the Company's claims management services. However staffing and adjusting to the new laws for time management resulted in recruiting expenses and legal fees. The Company is also experiencing extended sales cycles due to the economic uncertainty in the healthcare marketplace caused by the election and the evolving conditions under the Affordable Care Act.
