Analysts International Corporation (AIC) (NASDAQ: ANLY), an information technology services company, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012 which ended on December 29, 2012.

AIC reported fourth quarter revenue of $25.5 million as compared to 2011 fourth quarter revenue of $27.1 million. AIC reported 2012 fourth quarter net income of $0.2 million, or $0.05 per share, as compared to 2011 fourth quarter net income of $1.3 million, or $0.25 per share.

For fiscal year 2012, AIC reported revenue of $105.8 million compared to $109.1 million in fiscal year 2011. The net income for fiscal 2012 was $0.3 million, or $0.07 per share, compared to net income of $3.3 million, or $0.66 per share, in the prior year.

"Fourth quarter revenue and earnings were in line with our forecast, coming in at the low end of our guidance as we closed out a year of significant challenge and change," said Brittany McKinney, AIC President and CEO. "In 2012, we strengthened our team by hiring a new chief financial officer and experienced sales leadership. In addition, we continued to invest in our go-to-market approach to build sustainable, recurring revenue streams.

"For the coming year, we will continue to grow our strategic accounts and build out application-specific capabilities that are in high demand."

2012 Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Review
Our revenues decreased $1.6 million, or 6.0%, in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, and by $3.3 million, or 3.0%, for fiscal year 2012 compared to fiscal year 2011. The decrease in our fiscal 2012 revenue over the prior year is primarily due to a 2.0% decrease in the number of hours billed and a 1.2% decrease in our average bill rates. There were 253 billing days in fiscal 2012 compared to 254 billing days in fiscal 2011.

In the fourth quarter of 2012, gross margins were $5.5 million, or 21.7% of revenue, as compared to $6.7 million, or 24.8% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011. Gross margins were $23.7 million, or 22.4% of revenue, for the fiscal year 2012, compared to $26.4 million, or 24.2% of revenue, for fiscal year 2011. The decrease in our fiscal 2012 gross margin rate was primarily due to an increase of $1.1 million in benefit costs and lower consultant utilization in the latter half of fiscal 2012.

Selling, general and other administrative expenses represented 20.8% of revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to 20.1% for the fourth quarter of 2011, and 22.0% for fiscal year 2012, as compared to 20.4% for fiscal year 2011. The increase in our SG&A expense in fiscal 2012 over fiscal 2011 is a result of an increase in sales and recruiter personnel expenses and bad debt expense, offset by decreases in variable compensation expense. Additionally, the prior year included the final earn-out benefit of $0.3 million associated with the sale of a business in fiscal 2008 and approximately $0.4 million in the reduction of post-retirement medical plan liabilities.

We generated cash from operations of $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to a use of cash from operations of $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. For fiscal year 2012, we generated cash from operations of $1.6 million compared to $2.4 million for fiscal year 2011. As of December 29, 2012, we had a cash balance of $5.8 million and no borrowings from our $15 million credit facility. This compares to a cash balance of $5.1 million at December 31, 2011.

On February 20, 2013, the Company amended its $15 million credit facility agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association. The amendment extends the term of the agreement through September 2016 and amends certain other terms to better reflect the current business.

* 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, 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.
