MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - Analysts International Corporation (AIC) (NASDAQ: ANLY)

  • Revenue was $27.1 million, a 0.9% increase from the 2011 second quarter
  • Net income was $0.5 million compared to $37,000 for the 2011 second quarter
  • Gross margin rate was 23.1% for both the second quarters of 2012 and 2011
  • Selling, administrative and other operating costs increased $0.2 million, or 3.4%, from the 2011 second quarter
  • The Company generated $1.3 million in operating cash flow and ended the quarter with $3.1 million in cash with no amounts outstanding under its credit facility

Analysts International Corporation (AIC) (NASDAQ: ANLY), an information technology services company, today announced financial results for the second quarter 2012, which ended on June 30, 2012.

AIC reported second quarter revenue of $27.1 million as compared to 2011 second quarter revenue of $26.8 million. AIC reported 2012 second quarter net income of $0.5 million, or $0.10 per share compared to 2011 second quarter net income of $37,000, or $0.01 per share. The 2011 second quarter net income included restructuring charges of $0.7 million, or $0.15 per share.

"Second quarter financial performance was at the low end of our expected range," said Brittany McKinney, AIC President and CEO. "We made progress on our strategy in the quarter, resulting in six percent growth in our core business and good inroads with new strategic clients.

"Although we are pleased with the progress that has been made to date, it is taking longer than anticipated to execute our national sales strategy and realize the top-line growth," added McKinney. "As a result, we are lowering our full year revenue and EBITDA outlook. While the revenue growth trajectory for the year has changed, I am confident this is the right strategy for AIC and we are taking the steps necessary to accelerate implementation." 

2012 Second Quarter and Year-to-Date Review
Our revenues increased $0.3 million, or 0.9%, in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011. For the first half of 2012, our revenues increased $0.7 million, or 1.2%, to $53.8 million. When compared to the prior year quarter, our average bill rate increased 1.7% and was partially offset by a 0.1% decrease in the number of billable hours. For the first half of 2012, our average bill rate increased 0.8% and the number of billable hours increased 0.7% over the prior comparable period. There were 64 billing days in both the second quarters of 2012 and 2011 and 128 billing days during the first half of 2012 compared with 129 billing days during the first half of 2011.

In the second quarter of 2012, gross profit was $6.3 million as compared to $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. The gross margin rate was 23.1% for both the second quarters of 2012 and 2011. In the first half of 2012, gross margin increased 10 basis points and resulted in $12.6 million of gross profit, or 23.5% of revenues, as compared to $12.5 million of gross profit, or 23.4% of revenues, for the first half of 2011. For the remainder of 2012, we expect to maintain a gross margin rate in the range of 23% to 25%.

Selling, general and other administrative expenses increased $0.2 million, or 3.4%, in the second quarter of 2012, when compared to the second quarter of 2011, and by $0.3 million, or 2.8%, in the first half of 2012, when compared to the first half of fiscal 2011. The increase in SG&A expense is primarily the result of expanding our sales and recruiting team, which was partially offset by non-personnel cost reductions.

The Company's income tax expense reflects the utilization of our net operating loss carryforwards to offset taxable income. We currently have $24.6 million of taxable benefit associated with the operating loss carryforwards available to offset future federal and state taxes.

In the second quarter of 2012, we generated cash from operations of $1.3 million compared to a use of cash from operations of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. As of June 30, 2012, we had a cash balance of $3.1 million and no borrowings from our credit facility.

For the fiscal year 2012, AIC projects revenue growth from 0-3 percent, gross margin in the range of 23-25 percent of revenue and EBITDA margin in the range of 2.5-3.0 percent of revenue.

* 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.
