Rocco Campanelli, President and Chief Executive Officer of RCM Technologies, commented, “While cognizant of the lower year over year consolidated comparisons of our operating results, we are pleased to see the improvement in our third quarter of 2015 results as compared to our second quarter of 2015. We are also observing encouraging signs in several of our businesses on a year over year basis. Our Specialty Healthcare Staffing segment continues to reach new heights as their third quarter, which is typically a seasonal low, achieved another record result with $10.7 million in revenues. Our healthcare revenues grew by almost 50% as compared to the third quarter of 2014. Our Information Technology segment continued its steady performance and grew by 5.3% in the third quarter of 2015 as compared to the third quarter of 2014 despite our two largest life sciences clients from fiscal 2014 declining by $2.0 million in revenues. Our Engineering segment improved their gross profit contribution to $4.9 million in the third quarter of 2015 as compared to our disappointing second quarter of 2015 gross profit of $4.3 million. We are very excited about the master services agreement signed with Bruce Power during the quarter and expect that contract to act as a springboard for an improved fiscal 2016.”

Kevin Miller, Chief Financial Officer of RCM Technologies, added, “We are happy to see a rebound from our second quarter of 2015. We also generated $10.0 million in cash flow from operations and improved our net debt position to $10.5 million. We expect to see continued strong cash flow from operations in the fourth quarter.”
