Business Segment Discussion
CDI Engineering Solutions reported a 27.1% increase in second quarter revenue versus the prior-year second quarter. Excluding Kimball results, revenue increased 15.7% driven by increases in the Process & Industrial and Aerospace verticals offset by a decrease in the Government Services vertical. Operating profit increased to $4.1 million versus $3.1 million in the prior-year second quarter driven primarily by the increase in revenue and a mix shift to higher margin project business. In addition, second quarter 2010 operating results included the $1.8 million benefit associated with the aforementioned legal settlement.
CDI IT Solutions revenue increased 18.2% compared to the prior-year second quarter driven by continued growth in larger accounts. Operating profit increased 22.9% to $3.5 million driven primarily by revenue growth.
Management Recruiters International, Inc. revenue increased 15.2% versus the second quarter 2010 driven by increases in contract staffing and royalty revenue. Operating profit increased 27.6% to $2.2 million driven primarily by the royalty revenue growth.
UK-based AndersElite (Anders) revenue decreased 14.5% versus the prior-year second quarter reflecting the continued impact of a weak UK construction market and contraction in Anders' transportation sector. Operating profit of $9.3 million was due to the aforementioned benefit of $9.7 million. Excluding that benefit, Anders operating loss would have been $0.4 million in the second quarter of 2011.
