Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measurement defined below) was $32.3 million, up 118 percent year-over-year.

Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenues) for the quarter was 11.4 percent compared with 10.3 percent in the second quarter of 2011.

Net Income was $8.5 million, or $0.19 per diluted share and $13.0 million or $0.28 per diluted share excluding acquisition related costs (net of income tax).

Commenting on the results for the second quarter, Peter Dameris, President and Chief Executive Officer of On Assignment, Inc., said, “I’m very pleased with our results for the second quarter of 2012. Our revenue almost doubled year-over-year and net income before acquisition related costs, as well as our Adjusted EBITDA more than doubled. Apex accounted for $99 million of our second quarter revenues and our other business grew 28 percent year-over-year. We are very pleased that our efforts during the quarter continue to demonstrate our operating discipline in that we were able to complete an acquisition that roughly doubled the size of the Company while at the same time achieving above market growth in our other businesses.”

“Our second quarter results reflect our expected income contribution from the Apex acquisition.” Dameris continued, “In addition, these results, which included expansion of our operating margins, were not impacted by any synergy savings from the acquisition of Apex.”

Dameris concluded, “We will continue to maintain our operational discipline, as we have demonstrated in the past, by growing our market share without sacrificing our margins. The inclusion of Apex, together with continued growth of our other businesses, will significantly increase our free cash flow generation allowing us to focus on reducing our outstanding debt. During the second quarter, we repaid $23.4 million of our debt and reduced total leverage from 3.79 times trailing twelve months Adjusted EBITDA to under 3.4 times.”

Jim Brill, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of On Assignment, Inc., stated, “Consolidated gross margin was 31.4% in the second quarter of 2012. Oxford’s gross margin was 35.9%, Apex System’s gross margin was 27.3%, Life Sciences’ gross margin was 34.1%, Healthcare’s gross margin was 28.8% and Physician Staffing’s gross margin was 30.8%.”

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Estimates

Based on revenue in the first three weeks of the second quarter, On Assignment is providing financial estimates for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 which do not include any acquisition related costs. Those estimates are as follows:

Revenues of $382 million to $388 million

Gross Margin of 30.3% to 30.6%

SG&A of $84 million which includes $1.9 million in depreciation, amortization of $3.8 million and $2.8 million in equity-based compensation expense

Adjusted EBITDA of $40.3 million to $43.2 million

Net income of $14.8 million to $16.5 million

Earnings per diluted share of $0.28 to $0.31

Diluted shares outstanding of 53 million

The estimates assume one less billable day in the third quarter than the second quarter and year-over-year revenue growth ranges in the high 20 percent for Oxford, a slight contraction for Life Sciences, low single digits for Healthcare (due to the labor disruption revenue in Nurse Travel in the 3rd quarter of 2011) and the low teens for Physician Staffing and Apex. The estimates above assume no deterioration in the staffing markets On Assignment serves.
