The Company announced revenues of $41.2million for the thirteen week period ended March 30, 2013, increased from $38.2million for the thirteen week period ended March 31, 2012 (comparable prior year period). The Company had operating income of $1.5 million for the thirteen week period ended March 30, 2013 as compared to $1.8 million for the comparable prior year period. Net income for the thirteen week period ended March 30, 2013 was $1.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the comparable prior year period.

Leon Kopyt, Chairman and CEO of RCM, commented: "We are pleased with the overall results of the Company for the first quarter and particularly pleased with the record performance of our Engineering segment and the continuing strong performance of our Information Technology segment. Our Engineering segment experienced record quarterly revenues and its highest quarterly gross profit since the first quarter of fiscal 2010. Our Information Technology segment experienced its third straight consecutive quarter with sequential growth in both revenues and gross profit. While our Specialty Health Care Segment experienced a significant decline in revenues as compared to last year's first quarter, we are confident that the management and staff in our Specialty Health Care segment will work diligently to return that segment to historic levels of performance."

Outlook

"As we consider our prospects going forward, we are cautiously optimistic that our overall results for the three remaining quarters of fiscal 2013 should exceed the comparative three quarters of fiscal 2012."

Stock Buybacks; Initiatives to Enhance Shareholder Value

During the thirteen-week period ended March 30, 2013, the Company repurchased 15,450 shares of its common stock for an aggregate cost of $0.1 million, or $5.35 per share, exhausting the Company's $7.5 million repurchase pool. "Our Board and management team remain committed to taking swift and decisive action to deliver value to our shareholders without compromising our strong balance sheet, financial flexibility and strategic growth trajectory, or our ability to continue investing in our business. While potential future initiatives such as stock repurchases and declarations of dividends are subject to approval of the Board and will depend on the Company's results of operations, financial condition, anticipated capital requirements, business conditions, level of indebtedness, contractual restrictions and other factors deemed relevant by the Board, we remain committed to continuing to explore further actions to enhance shareholder value," concluded Mr. Kopyt.
