RCM Technologies, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

PENNSAUKEN, N.J., Aug. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RCM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:RCMT), a premier provider of business and technology solutions designed to enhance and maximize the operational performance of its customers through the adaptation and deployment of advanced engineering, information technology and specialty health care services, today announced financial results for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended July 4, 2015.

RCM Technologies reported revenues of $45.3 million for the thirteen week period ended July 4, 2015, a 8.5% decrease as compared to $49.5 million for the thirteen week period ended June 28, 2014 (the comparable prior year period). Gross profit was $12.1 million for the thirteen week period ended July 4, 2015, a 6.7% decrease as compared to $13.0 million for the comparable prior year period. Operating income was $1.2 million for the thirteen week period ended July 4, 2015, a 60.0% decrease as compared to $3.0 million for the comparable prior year period. Net income for the thirteen week period ended July 4, 2015 was $0.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, as compared to $2.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period.

The Company reported revenues of $93.3 million for the twenty-six week period ended July 4, 2015, a 4.9% decrease as compared to $98.1 million for the twenty-six week period ended June 28, 2014 (the comparable prior year period). Gross profit was $25.4 million for the twenty-six week period ended July 4, 2015, a 0.1% increase as compared to $25.2 million for the comparable prior year period. Operating income was $3.6 million for the twenty-six week period ended July 4, 2015, a 29.6% decrease over $5.1 million for the comparable prior year period. Net income for the twenty-six week period ended July 4, 2015 was $2.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, as compared to $3.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period.

Rocco Campanelli, President and Chief Executive Officer of RCM Technologies, commented, “We are disappointed with the results of our second quarter of 2015. As we previously disclosed, the primary reason for lower revenues and operating income as compared to the second quarter of 2014 were revenue declines from a very large project worked on by our Canadian Engineering Group, which we do not expect to pick up in the near term. While we remain optimistic about our Canadian Engineering Group going forward, particularly as we look to fiscal 2016, we’ve had to make staffing adjustments for the second half of fiscal 2015. We are cautiously optimistic that we will soon announce a very large master services agreement with a major client in Canada. On a much brighter note, our Specialty Healthcare segment has continued on its strong pace, setting new quarterly records for both revenues and gross profit. The expected impact from the recently announced engagement with the Chicago Board of Education will further improve on the Specialty Healthcare’s record year and bolster our run rate as we head into fiscal 2016. Our Information Technology segment’s performance in the second quarter was steady with numbers of staffing placements at existing and new clients significantly higher than last year’s results. We are excited about our consolidated prospective performance for the second half of fiscal 2015 as compared to the first half of 2015 and we expect to realize some of our considerable pipeline opportunities and lay the groundwork for a very strong fiscal 2016.”

Kevin Miller, Chief Financial Officer of RCM Technologies, added, “We are obviously disappointed with the decline in revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 versus last year’s second quarter. The primary reason for the decrease was an $8.0 million reduction in revenues from work performed, as a subcontractor or directly, for a large Engineering client in Canada. While we do not foresee any near term material expansion of work for this client, we do have a robust pipeline across all three segments of our business and expect to see improvement in operating income for the second half of fiscal 2015 as compared to the first half of the year.”
