CLEVELAND, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE: CBZ) today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012. 

CBIZ reported revenue of $188.6 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, an increase of 2.8% over the $183.5 million recorded for the second quarter of 2011.  Revenue from newly acquired operations contributed $6.9 million to revenue growth in the second quarter compared with the same period a year ago.  Same-unit revenue decreased by 1.0%, or $1.8 million in the second quarter, compared to the same period a year ago.  CBIZ reported income from continuing operations for the quarter of $5.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with $6.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2011. 

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, CBIZ reported revenue of $409.4 million, an increase of 4.0% over the $393.5 million recorded for the comparable six-month period a year ago.  Same-unit revenue increased by $0.1 million for the first six months of 2012 compared to the same period a year ago.  Acquisitions contributed $15.8 million to revenue growth for the first half of 2012.  Income from continuing operations was $24.6 million for the first six months of 2012, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared with $25.0 million for the first six months of 2011, or $0.50 per diluted share.

Cash earnings per share from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure that includes the impact of major non-cash charges to earnings, was $0.27 per diluted share for the second quarter 2012, compared to $0.29 for the second quarter a year ago, and was $0.79 per diluted share for the first six months of 2012 compared with $0.78 for the first six months a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $18.7 million and for the six months ended June 30, 2012, adjusted EBITDA was $57.7 million.  The calculations for these items are outlined in the schedules attached. 

At June 30, 2012, the amount outstanding on the Company's $275.0 million unsecured credit facility was $149.2 million compared with $145.0 million at December 31, 2011. The Company used $23.1 million of funds for acquisition-related and earn out payments and $3.8 million to repurchase 634 thousand shares of its outstanding stock in the first half of 2012. 

Steven L. Gerard, CBIZ Chairman and CEO stated, "We are pleased to report a 4.0% increase in total revenue for the first half of 2012 including 2.8% revenue growth in the second quarter. We are encouraged by the organic growth of 1.6% within our core Financial and Employee Services group for the first half of 2012.  Lower reimbursement rates and industry pricing pressures continue to impact our MMP business, and as expected, we are experiencing a decline in revenue within this group and this is having a negative impact on our overall revenue and earnings.

"At this time, we expect to achieve our target of full-year revenue growth of 3-4% and diluted earnings per share growth of 6-8% for 2012.  We completed three acquisitions so far this year, continue to have a significant pipeline of potential acquisitions and expect to close several additional transactions during the second half of 2012," continued Mr. Gerard. 

CBIZ will host a conference call later this morning to discuss its results.  The call will be webcast in a listen-only mode over the Internet for the media and the public, and can be accessed at www.cbiz.com.

The Company believes cash earnings and cash earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP measures) more clearly illustrate the impact of certain non-cash charges and credits to "income from continuing operations" and are a useful measure for the Company and its analysts. Cash earnings is defined as income from continuing operations excluding: depreciation and amortization, non-cash interest expense, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and adjustments to the fair value of contingent consideration related to prior acquisitions. Cash earnings per diluted share is calculated by dividing cash earnings by the number of weighted average diluted common shares outstanding for the period indicated. Cash earnings and cash earnings per diluted share should not be regarded as a replacement or alternative to any measurement of performance under generally accepted accounting principles.

Capital spending was $2.2 million and $1.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
