Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results
Net revenues in the third quarter of 2015 increased 14% to $199.3 million compared to $175.0 million in the third quarter of 2014.
Total non-GAAP gross revenues in the third quarter of 2015 increased 17% to $1.1 billion compared to $900.2 million in the third quarter of 2014 (see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below). The increase was primarily due to the continued build in the Company's co-employed client count and same-store sales growth, partially offset by a 4% decline in staffing services revenue.
Net income for the third quarter of 2015 was $11.6 million or $1.57 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $37.8 million or $(5.27) per diluted share in the year-ago quarter. The net loss in the third quarter of 2014 was the result of the Company's recognition of an additional increase to its self-insured workers' compensation reserve of $80.0 million.
At September 30, 2015, the Company's cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, and restricted securities totaled $273.9 million compared to $239.1 million at December 31, 2014.
"We delivered another quarter of strong results with gross revenues up 17%, surpassing a quarterly threshold of $1 billion for the first time in our Company's history," said Michael Elich, president and CEO of BBSI. "These results were driven by the addition of 160 new client companies and 10.6% same-store sales growth. This was tempered by a slight year-over-year decline in our staffing business due to a decrease in seasonal employee hiring related to the West Coast drought, as well as a shortage in labor to meet the staffing demand in some of our markets.
"These types of episodic fluctuations are not uncommon in the staffing industry and we expect the seasonal challenges to subside in our fourth quarter. We are not experiencing these same impacts in our PEO business, which comprises the majority of our revenues and, as such, we reiterate our rolling 12-month outlook of 18% gross revenue growth."
12 Month Outlook
BBSI expects non-GAAP gross revenues for the next 12 month period to increase approximately 18%. Included in this expectation is a high single-digit contribution from same-store sales growth, as well as continued growth from new business consistent with current trends.
