Third Quarter 2015 Results

For the third quarter of 2015, consolidated revenue was $383 million, an increase of 45% from the same quarter last year and 9% sequentially. Third quarter revenue for the Nurse and Allied Healthcare Staffing segment was $266 million, up 53% from the same quarter last year and 11% sequentially.

Third quarter gross margin of 32.9% was higher by 250 basis points than the same quarter last year and higher by 150 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year and sequential gross margin improvements were driven primarily by an increased revenue mix of our higher-margin workforce solutions businesses, along with a gross margin increase in the Locum Tenens Staffing segment.

SG&A expenses for the third quarter were $83 million, representing 21.7% of revenue, compared to 22.8% in the same quarter last year and 21.3% in the prior quarter. The

improvement from the prior year was due to operating leverage on the revenue growth. The decline from the prior quarter was due to the prior quarter including a $3 million favorable professional liability adjustment.

Third quarter net income was $34 million and net income per diluted share was $0.69. Tax expense in the quarter included a $12 million favorable reversal of tax reserves. Excluding this tax adjustment, amortization of intangible assets, and acquisition and integration costs incurred during the quarter, adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.48. Third quarter adjusted EBITDA was $46 million, a year-over-year increase of 109% and sequential increase of 16%.
