Analysts International Corporation (AIC) (NASDAQ: ANLY), an information technology services company, today announced financial results for the 2011 first quarter which ended on April 2, 2011.

AIC reported 2011 first quarter revenue of $26.3 million as compared to 2010 first quarter revenue of $28.5 million. AIC reported a 2011 first quarter net income of $0.2 million, or $0.04 per share, as compared to a 2010 first quarter net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.23 per share. The 2010 first quarter net loss included restructuring charges of $0.2 million, or $0.03 per share.

"We are pleased to report first quarter results consistent with our expectations and to have achieved another quarter of profitability," said President and CEO Brittany McKinney. "We continue to balance bottom line performance with making the investments necessary to grow the company and expect to meet our objectives for full-year profitability in fiscal year 2011."

First Quarter 2011 Review

Our revenues decreased $2.1 million, or 7.5%, in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the first quarter of 2010. Adjusting for the exit from a non-core line of business, revenue declined 5.7% from the 2010 first quarter as a result of fewer consultants serving lower margin business in the first quarter of 2011. There were 65 billing days in both of the reported periods.

In the first quarter of 2011, gross margins were $6.3 million, or 23.8%, as compared to $6.0 million, or 21.1% in the first quarter of 2010. The increase in gross margins as a percent of revenue primarily reflects a decrease in our benefit costs and the impact of implementing our strategy of securing higher margin business.

Selling, general and other administrative expenses declined by $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2011, when compared to the first quarter of 2010. The decrease in SG&A expense is primarily the result of personnel and related cost reductions, lower benefit costs and the implementation of general expense reductions.

The Company's income tax expense reflects the utilization of our net operating loss carryforwards to offset taxable income. We currently have $25.5 million of operating loss carryforwards available to offset future federal and state taxes.

Cash provided by operations was $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2011 compared to using $0.1 million in cash from operations in the first quarter of 2010. As of April 2, 2011, we had a cash balance of $4.3 million and no borrowings from our $15 million credit facility.

* Non-GAAP Financial Information

In evaluating the Company's business, the Company's management considers and uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA refers to a financial measure that the Company defines as net income (loss) excluding interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation, special charges and other gains and losses that are not related to the Company's operations. This measure is an essential component of the Company's internal planning process because it facilitates period-to-period comparisons of the Company's operating performance by eliminating potential differences in net income (loss) caused by the existence and timing of certain non-cash items, special charges and other gains and losses. This measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. The non-GAAP financial measure included in this press release has been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure.
