Compensation and employee benefits expense increased $5.7 million, or 32.5%, to $23.3 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011 from $17.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2010. As a percentage of net revenue, first quarter 2011 compensation and benefits increased to 76.6% compared to 68.4% for the same period in 2010. The increase in compensation and benefits expense was primarily the result of a $2.2 million increase in salaries related to the hiring of 18 new consultants and 62 new support staff since the first quarter of last year, a $1.3 million increase in incentive compensation for executive search consultants which was the direct result of higher consolidated net revenue and a $0.6 million increase in sign-on incentives related to the hiring of new consultants.

General and administrative expenses increased approximately $1.0 million, or 18.2%, to $6.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 from $5.1 million for the same period in 2010. The increase was partially due to a $350,000 increase in business development expense which is a direct result of an increase in the number of consultants, a $250,000 increase in professional fees which included accounting, audit and tax preparation services and an $180,000 increase in travel expenses related to growth opportunities and aggressive recruiting efforts. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenue remained at 19.9% for the quarters ended March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2010, respectively.

Operating income decreased $2.0 million to $1.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to operating income of $3.0 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease primarily reflects an increase in net revenues of $4.7 million offset by a $5.7 million increase in compensation and benefits expense, and a $1.0 million increase in general and administrative expenses.

For the three-month period ended March 31, 2011, income before taxes was $0.9 million and the recorded income tax expense was $0.3 million, as compared to income before taxes of $3.0 million and income tax expense of $0.1 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2010. The increase in income tax expense was primarily due to a $0.6 million increase in the current tax provision offset by a $0.4 million deferred tax benefit.
Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $0.6 million.
