Management Commentary

"The growth in our business for the second quarter of 2014 is a direct result of BBSI's continued brand maturation in the marketplace," said Michael Elich, president and CEO of BBSI. "Complemented by healthy organic growth from our existing client base and strong referral channels, we continue to drive new business and maintain our high client retention rate.

"Looking towards the second half of the year, BBSI remains well-positioned to deliver another strong year for our shareholders, despite the client backfilling process we have undertaken. We also continue to expand and invest in our infrastructure and internal talent, which we believe will help us ultimately support a much larger, more mature company."
