SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart-Tek Solutions, Inc. (OTC Markets: STTN) reported consolidated revenues for the year ending December 31, 2011 of $21.7 million, an increase of 26 percent over the prior fiscal year. 

The increased revenues, about $4.5 million, were associated primarily from the Smark-Tek Automated Services, Inc. subsidiary.  Its nurse staffing business contributed around $1 million of revenues.

The company reported a yearly net loss from operations of $8.1 million compared to net income from operations of $721,000 for the prior fiscal year.

The loss is mainly attributable to a one-time adjustment in workers compensation costs of approximately $4.4 million, tax penalties and interest of about $1.9 million, and an increase in general operating expenses during a period of rapid growth.  

"Nurse staffing activities are expected to experience rapid growth in 2012.  Workers compensation costs have been growing rapidly due to the overall growth of Smart-Tek in 2011. We are investigating better insurance options and have implemented better claims oversight," said Brian Bonar, CEO.  "We are starting to see the benefit of our efforts in these areas in 2012," he added. "We estimate that these changes will result in improved financial results over the next several quarters."

Complete (audited) financial statements with notes thereto are provided with the company's Form 10K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
