TeamStaff, Inc., a leading healthcare and logistics services provider to the Federal Government, including the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, announced today financial results for its second quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Commenting on the Company’s results, TeamStaff’s President and Chief Executive Officer Zachary Parker stated, “While the second quarter results reflect significantly improved results on the top line due to the ramp up of our renewed and enhanced CMOPs contract that commenced during November 2011, we incurred losses due to increased direct labor expenses stemming in large part from workers’ compensation claims expense related to prior periods as well as the historical effect in this quarter of higher payroll taxes. These additional expenses lowered our gross profit margin in the quarter and adversely impacted our ability to achieve better operating results.”

The Company added to certain operational overhead in the quarter to prepare bids for several contracts that are in its business development pipeline. In addition, by commencing its rights offering, the Company is taking steps to strengthen its capital structure to support growth. The Company also received, subsequent to quarter’s end, contract modifications which should facilitate the resolution of its retroactive billing adjustments.

Mr. Parker concluded, “We believe that we are positioned well for growth and that the new platform we have built for future opportunities is ready to attract additional business. In the interim, we continue to keep tight expense controls, and have begun to move forward to convert our business pipeline into actionable contracts. We are confident in our ability to receive additional government contracts thanks in part to our impeccable track record and we are excited about our prospects, which are of utmost importance in our long term goal of improving shareholder value.”

Three Month Results

Revenues from TeamStaff’s continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $12.6 million and $10.4 million, respectively, which represented an increase of $2.2 million or 21.2% despite extended government delays in major awards. The increase in operating revenues is due primarily to new business awards.

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $1.3 million and $1.5 million, respectively, which represents a decrease of $0.2 million or 13.3% despite the revenue increase. Gross profit from continuing operations, as a percentage of revenue, was 10.3% and 14.4%, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The key drivers for the period over period decrease in gross profit (as a percentage of revenue) were increased workers’ compensation claims expense related to previously incurred but not yet reported claims from 2009 – 2011 of approximately $0.2 million and a reduction in the prior year direct expenses of approximately $0.2 million, related to obtaining an independent trustee consent to utilize surplus assets in a medical benefit plan.

General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $1.8 million and $1.6 million, respectively, which represent an increase of $0.2 million, or 12.5%. The difference is related to new contract operational overhead as well as to expanded new business development activity.

Loss from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $0.6 million as compared to loss from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 of $0.1 million. The increase is primarily due to greater workers’ compensation claims expense related to previously incurred but not yet reported claims, the non-reoccurrence of a prior year trustee consent, new contract costs and expanded new business development efforts.

Loss from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $0.7 million, or ($0.12) per basic and diluted share, as compared to loss from continuing operations of $0.2 million, or ($0.04) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

Earning (Loss) Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”) adjusted for other noncash charges (“Adjusted EBITDA”(1)) for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was ($487,000) as compared to ($27,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2011, which shows a decrease of $460,000, reflecting the lower gross margin and increased SG&A expense.

Six Month Results

Revenues from TeamStaff’s operations from the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $24.1 million and $21.0 million respectively, which represented an increase of $3.1 million or 14.8% over the prior fiscal period. The increase in revenues from continuing operations is due primarily to the impact of new business awards.

Gross profit for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $2.9 million and $2.8 million, respectively which represents an increase $0.1 million or 3.6% over the prior fiscal year period. Gross profit from continuing operations, as a percentage of revenue, was 11.9 and 13.4%, for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The key driver for the period over period increase in gross profit was the impact of new business awards, although factors such as increased workers’ compensation claims expense related to previously incurred but not yet reported claims from 2009 – 2011 of approximately $0.4 million and a reduction in the prior year direct expenses of approximately $0.2 million, related to obtaining an independent trustee consent to utilize surplus assets in a medical benefit plan, resulted in a decline in gross profit as a percentage of revenue.

G&A expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $3.6 million and $3.1 million, respectively, which represent an increase of $0.5 million, or 14.9%. The difference is attributed largely to costs and investments associated with start-up of work under new contracts in three different states during the year, issuance of non-cash stock grants, and expanded new business development activity.

Loss from operations for six months ended March 31, 2012 was $0.8 million as compared to loss from operations for the six months ended March 31, 2011 of $0.4 million. The increase is similarly due to greater workers’ compensation claims expense related to previously incurred but not yet reported claims, the non-reoccurrence of a prior year trustee consent, new contract start-up costs and expanded new business development efforts.
