Fourth Quarter Results

Gross profit decreased 3.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 to $90.0 million. This decline was primarily the result of a higher deficit in the benefits cost center, which was partially offset by a higher gross profit contribution from our adjacent businesses.

This increase included costs associated with the hiring of additional Business Performance Advisors, the number of which was up 27.2% over 2012.
