"As our numbers clearly demonstrate, we continue to generate strong and improving financial results," said L. Allen Baker, Jr., President and CEO. "Our dual path business strategy is delivering both higher revenues and margins."

"While there may be uncertainty in the general market and overall economy, our business outlook is good.   In the fourth quarter we strengthened our back office staff to support continued growth. I look forward to a year of increasing revenues, improving profitability while looking to build on our track record of accretive acquisitions."

(1) Non-GAAP financial measure.  See reconciliation at end for details.
(*) Pro forma revenue and EBITDA includes two and twelve months of D&W Talent, LLC ("DW") and nine and twelve months of Vision Technology Services ("VTS") in 2015 and 2014, respectively.  See reconciliation.

Baker continued, "According to Staffing Industry Analysts ("SIA"), it expects that our industry will grow by approximately 6% during 2016. Our pro forma revenue results for 2015, including the benefit of two acquisitions, were $245.8 million*. Consistent with the SIA perspective, I am comfortable that we can achieve 6% growth over our 2015 pro forma revenue in 2016."

Fiscal Year Ended 2015 Results
Revenues for the Fiscal 2015 were $217.5 million, an increase of 25.9% when compared with revenues from the Fiscal 2014 of $172.8 million. The Company reported net income of $5.3 million, or $0.73 per diluted share for the Fiscal 2015 compared with a net loss of $(0.4) million, or $(0.08) per diluted share for the Fiscal 2014. Gross profit percent was 22.0% for the Fiscal 2015 compared with 20.0% for the Fiscal 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $17.9 million, or 8.2% of revenues, for the Fiscal 2015, compared with $11.6 million, or 6.7% of revenues for the Fiscal 2014.

Since 2009, the Company's consistent business model has been built upon a combination of accretive acquisitions and organic growth -- and it does not routinely separately measure those growth factors. In 2015 there were no acquisitions in either the Multifamily or Commercial segments (combined 60% of total revenues) which together grew revenues organically 12.6%. In 2015 the Company completed two acquisitions in the Professional segment (40% of total revenues) which grew revenues 53.3%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial results of BG Staffing, Inc. are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. To help the readers understand the Company's financial performance, the Company supplements its GAAP financial results with Adjusted EBITDA.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows of a company. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of our liquidity. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure and is used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under GAAP can provide alone.

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as earnings before interest expense and related party interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash items, and certain items that management does not consider in assessing our on-going operating performance.
