PLANO, Texas, August 05, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BGSF, Inc. (NYSE: BGSF), a leading national provider of workforce solutions, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 27, 2021.

The Company further announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock.

  • Net income was $3.4 million or $0.33 per diluted share, vs. net loss of $4.8 million or negative $0.47 per diluted share in 2020

  • Adjusted EPS1 was $0.33, up from $0.16 in 2020

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $4.8 million (6.4% of revenues), vs. $3.3 million (5.2% of revenues) in 2020

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $7.7 million (5.4% of revenues), vs. $8.5 million (6.2% of revenues) in 2020

"I am very pleased with our second quarter and our overall first half 2021 results, which generally improved both sequentially and on a year-over-year basis. Our operational restructuring executed last year combined with our continuous improvement strategy are driving improved financial results. Industry outlook remains strong for each of our segments, and as we continue to progress coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic, we remain optimistic about our ability to deliver growth and profitability for the reminder of the year," said Beth A. Garvey, President and CEO.

"Operationally, the Real Estate segment is beginning to recover. Our teams have returned to the office on a hybrid basis and are executing several market relaunches and focusing on capturing pent-up demand. I expect this process to be positive overall but anticipate some lumpiness as we phase in new markets and manage through the labor environment during the remainder of the year. Our Professional segment performed well with the IT Consulting brands largely leading the way. The acquisition of Momentum Solutionz earlier this year has brought benefits as new client introductions have taken place, and we are executing on new service opportunities and building a strong pipeline through cross-selling and strategic customer engagements. Light Industrial continued to show strong growth and demand remains high although we are still managing through industry-wide labor shortages. As always, we remain actively focused on pursuing new and innovative ways to attract and retain talent as the demand outlook recovers across our business segments. Lastly, the M&A landscape has started to slow as valuations continue to increase, but we expect to see a resurgence in activity in the second half of the year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial results of BGSF, Inc. are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. To help the readers understand the Company's financial performance, the Company supplements its GAAP financial results with Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income (loss), balance sheet or statement of cash flows of a company. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), net income (loss) per diluted share, operating income (loss), or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or measure of our liquidity. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are useful performance measures and are used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under GAAP can provide alone. In addition, the financial covenants in our credit agreement are based on EBITDA as defined in the credit agreement.

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, transaction fees and other non-capital information technology project expenses ("IT roadmap") and certain non-cash expenses such as impairment losses, the gain on contingent consideration and share-based compensation expense that management does not consider in assessing our on-going operating performance.

We define "Adjusted EPS" as diluted earnings per share eliminating amortization expense of intangible assets from acquisitions, contingent consideration gains, and certain specific events, such as transaction fees and the IT roadmap, and certain non-cash expenses, that management does not consider in assessing our on-going operating performance, net of the respective income tax effect.
