Analysts International Corporation Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) -  Analysts International Corporation (AIC) (NASDAQ: ANLY), an information technology services company, today announced financial results for the first quarter 2013, which ended on March 30, 2013.

  • Revenue for the quarter was $24.6 million, compared with $26.7 million in Q1 2012 and $25.5 million in Q4 2012
  • Net income was $0.2 million, or $0.04 per share, essentially flat with net income in both the prior year first quarter as well as Q4 2012
  • Gross profit margin was 22.7%, compared with 23.9% in Q1 2012 and 21.7% in Q4 2012
  • Selling, administrative and other operating costs totaled $5.3 million, compared with $6.2 million in Q1 2012 and $5.3 million in Q4 2012
  • The quarter-end cash balance totaled $5.7 million, with no amounts outstanding under the Company's credit facility

"Revenue in the first quarter was down year-over-year due primarily to the continued attrition in markets we exited and the loss of a major account last year," said Brittany McKinney, AIC President and CEO. "We were, however, able to achieve double-digit growth in our strategic accounts, which now represent 65 percent of our total revenue.

"The second quarter will be a turning point in our revenue trajectory," added McKinney. "The work we have done to strengthen our portfolio will now drive sequential growth throughout the remainder of the year."

2013 First Quarter Review
Revenues decreased $2.2 million, or 8.1%, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012. When compared with the prior year quarter, the decrease in revenues is due to an 8.6% decrease in the number of hours billed, offset by a 1.9% increase in average billing rates. There were 64 billing days in the first quarter of both fiscal years 2013 and 2012.

In the first quarter of 2013, gross profit was $5.6 million, or 22.7% of revenue, as compared with $6.4 million, or 23.9% of revenue in the first quarter of 2012. The decrease in our first quarter 2013 gross profit is primarily due to changes in revenue mix compared to the prior year first quarter.

Selling, general and other administrative expenses were $5.3 million, or 21.7% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2013, as compared with $6.2 million, or 23.1% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2012. The decrease was the result of lower sales and recruiting personnel expenses as well as a decrease in variable incentive compensation expense.

In the first quarter of 2013, we generated EBITDA of $0.4 million, an increase of $0.1 million compared to $0.3 million of EBITDA generated in the first quarter of 2012, resulting from increased operating income in the current year quarter.

We used cash from operations of $9,000 during the first quarter of 2013 compared to $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2012. As of March 30, 2013, we had a cash balance of $5.7 million and no borrowings from our $15 million credit facility.

Business Outlook for Second Quarter and Full Year 2013

  • Modest sequential revenue growth and continued profitability for Q2
  • The full year outlook remains unchanged. Financial results will be between 2011 and 2012 levels with revenue in the range of $106 to $109 million and EBITDA of $2.0 to $3.0 million

* Non-GAAP Financial Information

In evaluating the Company's business, the Company's management considers and uses EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. EBITDA refers to a financial measure that the Company defines as net income (loss) excluding interest, taxes and depreciation 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 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.
