TeamStaff Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

- Sale of Travel Healthcare Staffing Subsidiary -

Jan 13, 2010, 16:26 ET from TeamStaff, Inc.

SOMERSET, N.J., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TeamStaff, Inc., (Nasdaq: TSTF), a leading healthcare and logistical staffing provider serving the Federal Government, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2009. As a result of the previously disclosed sale of TeamStaff Rx, which was completed on January 4, 2010, all results reported in this release have been reclassified to show TeamStaff Rx as a discontinued operation.

TeamStaff's operating revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2009 were $11.2 million as compared to $12.5 million in the comparable quarter last year. The decrease in operating revenues from the prior year is due primarily to reduced personnel requirements and overtime restrictions at certain Government facilities. Total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2009 were $11.2 million as compared to $19.7 million in the comparable quarter last year.  Included in the three months ended September 30, 2008 is $7.2 million in revenue from certain non-recurring retroactive billings.  Loss from continuing operations was $0.4 million or ($0.08) per basic share compared to income from continuing operations of $1.0 million or $0.21 per basic share in the comparable quarter last year.   Adjusted to eliminate profit from certain non-recurring retroactive billings, as well as favorable tax settlements and insurance claims experience on a previously divested business in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, the results for the three months ended September 30, 2008 would have been income from continuing operations of $0.3 million, or $0.07 per basic share.  

Commenting on the Company's results, TeamStaff's CEO and President Rick J. Filippelli stated, "The past year was challenging for TeamStaff and the healthcare staffing industry in general. After extensive analysis and consideration of economic conditions and trends in Government spending, the Company decided to divest its travel healthcare business and focus on the development and expansion of its core Government staffing subsidiary, TeamStaff Government Solutions ("GS"). GS posted EBITDA of $2.7 million on a stand-alone fully allocated basis for the 2009 fiscal year. This was achieved despite pressure on gross margins caused by a loss of overtime at certain facilities, increased health benefit expense, increased vacation expense due to lower turnover, and non-recurring credits issued to certain facilities. With the absence of credits and approved billing increases scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2010, we anticipate improved gross margins in fiscal 2010. In addition, revenue opportunities during most of fiscal 2009 were down primarily due to delayed receipt of stimulus funding. We did however see a pick-up in bid solicitations during the fourth quarter. This has translated into a strong pipeline for GS entering fiscal 2010. We are also encouraged by our recently announced $3.3 million contract win and the opportunities we believe lie ahead."

Mr. Filippelli continued, "The fiscal 2009 results of the travel healthcare subsidiary, TeamStaff Rx, shown as discontinued operations, include non-cash, intangible asset write-offs of approximately $2.3 million. The proceeds from the sale of TeamStaff Rx will help TeamStaff commit additional capital to grow its Government staffing subsidiary."  

Mr. Filippelli added, "TeamStaff maintains a solid liquidity position with over $3 million in cash and cash equivalents at fiscal year end and no balance outstanding on our revolving line of credit. The Company is streamlined, liquid and positioned for growth in 2010."

Full Year Results

TeamStaff's operating revenues for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 were $46.0 million as compared to $47.7 million last year.  TeamStaff's operating gross profit was $7.0 million, or 15.2% of revenues for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 as compared to $8.3 million, or 17.3% of revenues, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2008.  Income from continuing operations was $0.4 million or $0.08 per basic share for the fiscal 2009 compared to $3.2 million or $0.66 per basic share for fiscal 2008.  Adjusted to eliminate profit from certain non-recurring retroactive billings, as well as favorable tax settlements and insurance claims experience on a previously divested business in fiscal 2008, last year's income from continuing operations would have been $1.4 million, or $0.29 per basic share.

SG&A expenses for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were $6.5 million and $5.9 million, respectively. Included in this increase is $0.1 million in management consulting fees related to the strategic business review of our government business, $0.5 million in increased new business expense for additional sales related headcount and marketing expense at TeamStaff GS and $0.2 million in legal settlement expense. The Company continues with its cost saving initiatives, which have resulted in reduced headcount in non-revenue generating departments and G&A costs.  The Company seeks continued elimination of overhead costs deemed to be non-essential to growth or infrastructure.

The Company also recorded a loss from discontinued operations related to the sale of TeamStaff Rx for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 of $4.7 million or ($0.97) per basic share.  Included in the full year loss is a non-cash goodwill and tradename write-off of $2.3 million.

Due to the timing of the completion of the Company's sale of the assets of its TeamStaff Rx business, the Company's management was not able to complete the preparation of its Annual Report on Form 10-K in sufficient time to allow the Company's independent registered public accounting firm to complete its review of the report prior to its filing due date.  Although the Company will file its Annual Report on Form 10-K as soon as possible, due to the foregoing circumstances, it was not able to accomplish this task prior to the required filing date.

(1)  Adjusted (loss) income from continuing operations  represents GAAP (loss) income from continuing operations minus gross profit from non-recurring retroactive billings and certain non-recurring payroll  tax and insurance adjustments.  Management presents adjusted (loss) income from continuing operations to show the three and twelve month comparative adjusted net (loss) income to show what results would have been in the three and twelve months of fiscal 2008 had the non-recurring items not occurred. Management believes that adjusted (loss) income from continuing operations is a useful supplement to (loss) income from continuing operations as an indicator of operating performance.  Management believes such a measure provides a picture of the Company's results that is more comparable among periods since it excludes the impact of items that are non-recurring, which could cause distorted comparisons between periods, thus providing a more meaningful comparison of its financial results. As defined, adjusted (loss) income from continuing operations is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.  While management believes that the non-recurring items are not indicative of the Company's current operating performance, these items do impact the income statement, and management therefore utilizes adjusted (loss) income from continuing operations as an operating performance measure in conjunction with GAAP measures such as GAAP (loss) income from continuing operations.

(2)  Adjusted (loss) income from continuing operations per basic share represents GAAP (loss) earnings from continuing operations per basic share minus gross profit from non-recurring retroactive billings and certain non-recurring payroll tax and insurance adjustments.  Management presents adjusted (loss) earnings from continuing operations per basic share to show what results would have been in the three and twelve months of fiscal 2008 had the non-recurring items not occurred because it believes that adjusted  (loss) earnings from continuing operations per basic share  is a useful supplement to GAAP (loss) earnings from continuing operations per basic share  as an indicator of operating performance .  Management believes such a measure provides a picture of the company's results that is more comparable among periods since it excludes the impact of items that are non-recurring, which could cause distorted comparisons between periods, thus providing a more meaningful comparison of its financial results.  As defined, adjusted (loss) earnings from continuing operations per basic share is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.  While management believes that the non-recurring items are not indicative of the company's current operating performance, these items do impact the income statement, and management therefore utilizes adjusted (loss) earnings from continuing operations per basic share as an operating performance measure in conjunction with GAAP measures such as GAAP (loss) earnings from continuing operations per share.  

(3)   Expenses related to TeamStaff Inc. on a stand alone basis include the costs associated with being a publicly traded company, general corporate expenses and certain direct expenses of the TeamStaff GS business.

(4)  EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Items excluded from EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance.  Management presents EBITDA because it believes that  EBITDA is a useful supplement to net (loss) income as an indicator of operating performance.  The Company believes it is useful for management to review both GAAP information and non-GAAP financial measures to have a better understanding of the overall performance of the Company’s business and trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations.  Management believes that this information provides greater insight into our Company’s underlying operating performance that facilitates a more meaningful comparison of its financial results in different reporting periods.
