Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Net revenues in the second quarter of 2015 increased 21% to $182.4 million compared to $151.1 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Total non-GAAP gross revenues in the second quarter of 2015 increased 22% to $971.9 million compared to $798.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 (see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below). The increase was due primarily to the continued build in the Company's co-employed client count and same-store sales growth.

Net income for the second quarter of 2015 increased 20% to $8.7 million compared to net income of $7.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2015 increased 21% to $1.19 compared to $0.98 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter.

At June 30, 2015, the Company's cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, and restricted securities totaled $248.0 million compared to $239.1 million at December 31, 2014.

Management Commentary

"We are pleased with our Q2 results as they continue to be driven by the organic growth of our existing client companies and the expansion of our new client count," said Michael Elich, president and CEO of BBSI. "Same-store sales grew 9.2% and we experienced a net build of 201 clients. We also continue to experience favorable trends related to workers' compensation, while continuing to mature our base of operations and areas that support our growth.

"We reiterate our rolling 12-month outlook of 18% gross revenue growth due to the health of our clients' businesses, the ability of our new business channels to convert high-quality companies to clients, and the scalability of our operations. Given this outlook, we look forward to a record year of financial and operational performance in 2015."

12 Month Outlook

BBSI expects gross revenues for the next 12-month period to increase approximately 18%. Included in this expectation is a high single-digit contribution from same-store sales growth as well as growth from new business consistent with current trends.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company is disclosing non-GAAP gross revenues.

The Company reports its Professional Employer Service revenues on a net basis because it is not the primary obligor for the services provided by the Company's co-employed clients to their customers. The gross revenues and cost of revenues information below, although not in accordance with GAAP, is presented for comparison purposes and because management believes such information is more informative as to the level of the Company's business activity and more useful in managing its operations.
