TeamStaff Reports First Quarter Net Income Of $0.01 Per Share

SOMERSET, N.J., Feb.17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TeamStaff, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSTF), a national provider of healthcare and administrative staffing services, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended December 31, 2008.

TeamStaff's revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2008 were $14.7 million as compared to $15.5 million in the comparable quarter last year. The decrease in revenues from continuing operations is primarily related to the impact of the current economic downturn on the results of TeamStaff Rx, which was offset by the performance of TeamStaff GS, which saw its revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 increase by approximately 10% over the same period last year. Income from operations for the three months ended December 31, 2008 was $50,000 as compared to $129,000 in the comparable quarter last year. Income from continuing operations was $48,000 or $0.01 per share compared to $36,000 or $0.01 per share in the comparable quarter last year.

Commenting on the Company's performance, TeamStaff's President and CEO, Rick J. Filippelli, stated, "Our Government staffing business, TeamStaff GS continued to outperform the overall market by posting an approximate 10% increase in revenues from the comparable quarter a year ago. Our strategy of expanding into DOD medical and logistics is starting to pay dividends for the company as we bid on new contract opportunities. Approximately 80% of the company's revenues are derived from government staffing. Since government contracts tend to be multi year, we believe the business is less impacted by the current economic environment. We expect the government staffing demands to remain high as the government continues to provide the necessary social services to veterans and active military personnel."

Mr. Filippelli continued, "Our non-government subsidiary, TeamStaff Rx, continues to feel the effects of the current economic conditions. On the demand side, hospitals have cut spending with certain hospitals reducing the length of contracts. On the supply side, we are seeing more travelers prefer the stability of permanent employment during these tough economic times. In addition to a weak economy, our travel segment experiences a seasonal downturn during our first fiscal quarter. Many travelers choose not to take assignments between Thanksgiving and New Year's. In order to attract new business, TeamStaff Rx continues to broaden its reach and aggressively market its services beyond hospitals specifically to include oncology centers and other expanding demand modalities such as specialty nursing and therapies. We have also expanded traveler benefits with the expectation of increasing our traveler base."

TeamStaff's gross profit was $2.7 million, or 18.6% of revenues, in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 as compared to $2.8 million, or 18.0% of revenues, in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The improvement in gross margin percentage is related primarily to increased pricing on new contracts and direct cost control initiatives.

SG&A expenses were $2.62 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 compared to $2.56 million in the comparable quarter last year. SG&A expenses increased by approximately 2.3%, which can be attributed to an increase in new business expense of approximately 13.7%.

Cash and cash equivalents were $4.1 million at December 31, 2008. Availability at December 31, 2008 under the Company's revolving credit facility was approximately $1.4 million. The Company believes that, along with its cash on hand, the availability under the existing revolving line of credit, and extended or successor facilities, will provide sufficient liquidity over the next twelve months.


The following guidance provided by TeamStaff are projections, based upon numerous assumptions, all of which are subject to certain risks and uncertainties including the added difficulty in predicting demand caused by current economic conditions and the timing of when certain government contracts will be awarded. For a discussion of the risks and uncertainties associated with these forward looking statements, please see the "Safe Harbor Statement" below.

Based upon projected growth in our Government staffing subsidiary, TeamStaff GS, the Company estimates consolidated revenues, net of retroactive billings, to be in the range of $67 million to $69 million in fiscal 2009. These estimates would represent revenue growth rates of 8% to 10% above fiscal 2008.
