Wed, 04/25/2012 - 6:30am
PR Newswire

CLEVELAND, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE: CBZ) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012. 

CBIZ reported revenue of $220.8 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012, compared with $210.1 million reported for the first quarter of 2011.  Same-unit revenue increased by 0.9%, or $1.9 million in the first quarter.  Revenue from newly acquired operations contributed $8.8 million or 4.2% to revenue growth in the first quarter compared with the same period a year ago.  CBIZ reported income from continuing operations for the quarter of $18.8 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with $18.1 million, or $0.36 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2011. 

Cash earnings per share from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure that includes the impact of major non-cash charges to earnings, was $0.52 per diluted share for the first quarter 2012, compared to $0.49 per diluted share from continuing operations for the first quarter 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarters of 2012 and 2011 was $38.9 million.  The calculations of these items are outlined in the schedules attached. 

At March 31, 2012 the amount outstanding on the Company's $275.0 million unsecured credit facility was $178.4 million compared with $145.0 million at December 31, 2011. The Company used approximately $20.9 million of funds for acquisition related payments in the first quarter.  During the first quarter of 2012, the Company repurchased 0.1 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $0.6 million.

Steven L. Gerard, CBIZ Chairman and CEO stated, "We are very pleased with our performance at this early stage of the year with total revenue growth of 5% including 3% organic growth from our core Financial and Employee Services businesses.  As expected, our Medical Management Professionals business continues to face challenges and their revenue decline reduced our overall revenue performance in the quarter.  We are encouraged by our approximate 6% growth in earnings per share and fully expect to achieve our target of full year revenue growth of 3-4% and our earnings per share growth of 6-8%.  We announced two acquisitions in January and the pipeline of potential acquisitions continues to be strong.  We expect to close an additional three to five acquisitions over the balance of 2012."

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.  Investors and analysts can participate in the conference call by dialing 1-877-889-2795 several minutes before 11:00 a.m. (ET).  If you are dialing from outside the United States, dial 1-630-343-1248.  A replay of the call will be available starting at 1:00 p.m. (ET) April 25, through midnight (ET), April 27, 2012.

(4)

Adjusted EBITDA represents Adjusted EBIT before depreciation and amortization expense of $5,228 and $5,030 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The Company has included Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA 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 service debt.

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 of performance under generally accepted accounting principles.





















(4)

Capital spending was $0.2 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
