CTG Reports 18% Revenue Growth and A 30% Increase in Net Income in the 2006 Second Quarter

BUFFALO, N.Y., July 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CTG , an international information technology (IT) staffing, solutions, and application management company, today announced its financial results for the 2006 second quarter which ended on June 30, 2006. CTG reported 2006 second quarter revenue of $85.8 million, a 17.6% increase from 2005 second quarter revenue of $72.9 million. Operating income was $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2006, a 33.2% increase from $1.2 million in the 2005 second quarter. CTG's net income for the 2006 second quarter was $0.8 million or $0.05 per diluted share, an increase of 29.7% from 2005 second quarter net income of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. Cash net income per share(1) for the 2006 second quarter was $1.0 million or $0.06 per diluted share, and excludes equity-based compensation expense of $0.1 million.

"As expected, CTG again reported quarterly double-digit revenue and earnings growth," said CTG Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James R. Boldt. "Demand from our clients in the quarter was strong for CTG's staffing, healthcare, testing, and information security offerings. As a result, we added another 100 people to our headcount this quarter, which now stands at approximately 3,800, a 500 person increase from a year ago. Overall, our focus on in-demand services and solutions in key growth vertical markets enabled CTG to achieve a strong first half despite a technology solutions market that remains below normal levels."

On July 24, 2006, the Company was informed by a significant customer of a reduction in their need for approximately 350 existing CTG staff. The reduction is not a result of CTG's performance but rather a change in our client's business needs. The reduction in staff will occur in the Company's lower margin Strategic Staffing business.

For the 2006 first half, CTG reported revenue of $169.4 million, a 19.6% increase from 2005 first half revenue of $141.6 million. Year-to-date operating income in 2006 was $3.1 million, 48.8% higher than $2.1 million in the same 2005 period. CTG's net income in the 2006 first half increased 44.1% to $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, from 2005 first half net income of $1.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share. Cash net income per share(1) for the 2006 first half was $1.8 million or $0.11 per diluted share, and excludes equity-based compensation expense of $0.2 million.

During the 2006 second quarter, CTG repurchased 150,400 of its shares in open market transactions. CTG has repurchased a total of 608,900 shares since announcing a 1.0 million share repurchase authorization on May 12, 2005 in addition to an existing 210,000 share authorization. Mr. Boldt commented, "We believe CTG's shares are attractively valued and intend to continue actively repurchasing our shares." CTG's debt at 2006 second quarter end was $3.2 million, compared with $1.0 million at the end of the 2006 first quarter. The increase is reflective of the timing of the payment of the company's US bi-weekly payroll on the last day of the 2006 second quarter.

CTG provided guidance on its revenue and earnings forecasts for the 2006 third quarter and updated its guidance for 2006. Based on current business and market conditions and the expected reduction in billable headcount, CTG expects that for the third quarter of 2006 its revenue will range from $81.5 million to $83.5 million, cash net income per diluted share(1) will range from $0.04 to $0.06, and net income per diluted share will range from $0.03 to $0.05. CTG now expects that its 2006 revenue will range from $330 million to $340 million, an increase of 12 to 15 percent over 2005. The Company currently anticipates its 2006 net income per diluted share will be in the range of $0.17 to $0.21 per share, an increase of 21 to 50 percent over 2005. Cash net income per diluted share (1), which excludes the equity-based compensation expense, is currently projected to be $0.20 to $0.24 per diluted share.

Mr. Boldt concluded, "Even with the reduction in our billable headcount in the third quarter, CTG expects double digit increases in revenue and earnings over 2005 for the full year. We recently secured several major new business wins that will commence in the second half of the year. These projects include a healthcare transitional outsourcing contract, an expansion of our staffing relationship with a leading global personal computer manufacturer, new testing work in the financial services and life sciences verticals, and a ramp-up in the fourth quarter of the support we are providing on the United Kingdom national healthcare systems project. This new business is expected to somewhat mitigate the impact of the third quarter reduction in billable headcount."
