CLEVELAND, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE: CBZ) today announced results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012. 

CBIZ reported revenue of $183.8 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, an increase of 3.6% over the $177.3 million recorded for the third quarter of 2011.  Revenue from newly acquired operations contributed $5.1 million to revenue growth in the third quarter compared with the same period a year ago.  Same-unit revenue increased by 0.8%, or $1.4 million in the third quarter, compared to the same period a year ago.  CBIZ reported income from continuing operations for the quarter of $5.3 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with $4.8 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011. 

For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, CBIZ reported revenue of $593.2 million, an increase of 3.9% over the $570.9 million recorded for the comparable nine-month period a year ago.  Same-unit revenue increased by 0.3%, or $1.6 million for the first nine months of 2012 compared to the same period a year ago.  Acquisitions contributed $20.7 million to revenue growth for the first nine months of 2012.  Income from continuing operations was $29.9 million for the first nine months of 2012, or $0.61 per diluted share, compared with $29.8 million for the first nine months of 2011, or $0.60 per diluted share.

Cash earnings per share from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure that includes the impact of major non-cash charges and credits to earnings, was $0.26 per diluted share for the third quarter 2012, compared to $0.24 for the third quarter a year ago, and was $1.05 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2012, compared with $1.02 for the first nine months a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $17.0 million and for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, adjusted EBITDA was $74.7 million.  The calculations for these items are outlined in the schedules attached. 

At September 30, 2012, the amount outstanding on the Company's $275.0 million unsecured credit facility was $146.0 million compared with $145.0 million at December 31, 2011. The Company used $31.7 million of funds for acquisition-related and earn out payments and $5.0 million to repurchase 874 thousand shares of its outstanding stock in the first nine months of 2012. 

Steven L. Gerard, CBIZ Chairman and CEO stated, "We are pleased to report 3.9% total revenue growth for the first nine months led by 6.3% revenue growth within our core Financial and Employee Services Groups.  Same-unit revenue trends within our core Financial Services and Employee Services groups continue to improve, with combined same-unit revenue up 1.6% for the first nine months of 2012.  As expected, our Medical Management Professionals group continues to face challenges with lower reimbursement rates, and revenue within this group has declined this year which is having a negative impact on our total revenue and margins.

"Including the two transactions announced in early October, we have completed seven acquisitions to date this year, and we are pleased with the contribution of these new operations.  Our pipeline of acquisition opportunities continues to be strong, and we have the financial flexibility to address these future opportunities.  At this point, we continue to expect to achieve our target of revenue growth of 3% - 4% for the full year of 2012 with 6% - 8% growth in diluted earnings per share compared with the $0.58 reported for 2011," continued Mr. Gerard.

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 $3.3 million and $3.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

The Company has included DSO data because such data is commonly used as a performance measure by analysts and investors and as a measure of the Company's ability to collect on receivables in a timely manner.
