Labor SMART, Inc. First Quarter 2016 Revenue Jumps $304,100

Company Adds 194 New Customers

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 28, 2016) - Labor SMART, Inc. (OTCQB: LTNC) (the "Company"), a leader in providing on-demand blue collar staffing primarily in the southeastern United States, today announced comparable revenue for the first quarter of 2016 increased $304,100 year over year.

For the Quarter ended March 25, 2016, adjusted comparable revenue was $3.28 million versus $2.97 million for the same year ago period, representing organic revenue growth of over 10%. System wide Gross Profit Margins increased to 26.53% of revenue, compared to 26.05% in the year ago period.

"Labor SMART is off to a great start for 2016. While much of the public discussion this year has been related to successes with our balance sheet restructuring, it's the strength of our branch operations that enable the Company to execute on our balance sheet and capital structure initiatives," stated Ryan Schadel, Chairman and CEO of Labor SMART, Inc.

"In addition to improving revenues and gross profit margins from the 18 branch locations we operated during the first quarter, the world class sales team at Labor SMART gained nearly 200 new customers during the first thirteen weeks of 2016. Our ever improving operating metrics illustrate the ease at which we will rebuild revenue from branches sold to fund our restructuring initiatives. For FY 2016, we expect revenue from continuing operations to easily exceed prior year comparable revenue."

System wide unadjusted non-comparable revenue for the Quarter ended March 25, 2016 was $3.33 million versus $4.71 million in the year ago period, when including operational results from five branches sold on Aug 12, 2015 in a deal valued at $1.8 million, one branch sold on February 19, 2016 in a deal valued at $677k, and discontinued operations from underperforming branches.
