Leon Kopyt, Chairman and CEO of RCM, commented: "We are pleased to report our highest quarterly revenues since the start of the Great Recession in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. Our Engineering segment experienced its highest quarterly revenue and second highest gross profit (trailing only the third quarter of 2013) in RCM's history. Our Specialty Healthcare segment experienced its highest quarterly revenues and gross profit in RCM's history. Our Information Technology segment continued its upward trend by posting its highest quarterly revenue and gross profit since the first quarter of fiscal 2011. By way of comparing the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 to the fourth quarter of 2012, Engineering grew revenues and gross profit 29.7% and 12.5%, respectively, Information Technology grew revenues and gross profit 9.8% and 14.2%, respectively, and Specialty Healthcare grew revenues and gross profit 35.3% and 31.4%, respectively."

Outlook

"As the board and management team continue to execute RCM's strategic plan to achieve progressively positive results, we are optimistic that our overall results for fiscal 2014 should improve compared to fiscal 2013. On a personal note, I have been contemplating retirement for the past few years. I've always wanted to retire at a time when all three business segments are positioned with strong leadership in place and are contributing together to the overall performance of the Company. I am extremely pleased to hand over leadership to Rocco Campanelli at this very exciting time in our history. I'm confident that the Company will continue to grow and prosper under his leadership."
