Barrett Business: Bbsi Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

VANCOUVER, Washington, July 29, 2014 – Barrett Business Services, Inc. (“BBSI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BBSI), a leading provider of business management solutions, reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Net revenues in the second quarter of 2014 increased 17% to $151.1 million compared to $128.8 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Total non-GAAP gross revenues in the second quarter of 2014 increased 18% to $798.4 million compared to $675.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 (see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below). The increase was due primari ly to the continued build in the Company’s co-employed client count and same-store sales growth.

Net income in the second quarter of 2014 increased 24% to $7.3 million compared to net income of $5.9 million in the year-ago quarter. Diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2014 increased 23% to $0.98 compared to $0.80 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter.

At June 30, 2014, the Company’s cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, and restricted securities totaled $146.1 million compared to $143.2 million at December 31, 2013. At June 30, 2014, the Company had no outstanding borrowings on its revolving credit facility.

“The growth in our business for the second quarter of 2014 is a direct result of BBSI’s continued brand maturation in the marketplace,” said Michael Elich, president and CEO of BBSI. “Complemented by healthy organic growth from our existing client base and strong referral channels, we continue to drive new business and maintain our high client retention rate.

“Looking towards the second half of the year, BBSI remains well-positioned to deliver another strong year for our shareholders, despite the client backfilling process we have undertaken. We also continue to expand and invest in our infrastructure and internal talent, which we believe will help us ultimately support a much larger, more mature company.”

For the third quarter of 2014, the Company expects gross revenues to increase at least 14% to range between $870 million and $890 million compared to $764.1 million in the third quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per common share in the third quarter of 2014 is expected to range between $1.30 and $1.35 compared to $1.21 in the third quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per common share in the third quarter of 2013 included a positive impact of approximately $0.08 per common share from a more favorable tax rate compared to the estimated tax rate for the third quarter of 2014.
