The Company reported revenues of $144.5 million for the thirty-nine week period ended September 27, 2014, a 15.6% increase over $124.9 million for the thirty-nine week period ended September 28, 2013 (the comparable prior year period).

Rocco Campanelli, President and Chief Executive Officer of RCM Technologies, commented, "I am proud of the results our employees delivered in the third quarter of 2014. We grew operating income by 56.9% over the third quarter of 2013. We also achieved gross profit of $13.2 million, the highest quarterly gross profit in over six years, with all three business segments making significant contributions. Our IT gross margin of 31.0% was the highest in RCM's history. Engineering's gross margin of 26.6% improved by approximately 230 basis points over the third quarter of 2013. Healthcare revenues grew by 15.9% over the third quarter of 2013."

Kevin Miller, Chief Financial Officer of RCM Technologies, added, "We continued to post impressive growth across all three segments. As a result of strong performance and subject to any development that materially impacts cash flow, the Company expects to pay a special dividend of at least $1.00 per share in fiscal 2014. Our Board of Directors continues to look to put a more efficient and better performing capital structure in place for shareholders."
