Cross Country Reports 1st Quarter Results; 
Revenues up 49%: Raises 2002 Guidance

BOCA RATON, Fla., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Cross Country, Inc. (Nasdaq: CCRN -
news) today reported revenue of $154.9 million for the three months ended March
31, 2002, an increase of 49% over revenue of $103.9 million for the same period
in the prior year. Net income for the first quarter of 2002 was $7.0 million or
$0.21 per diluted share compared to breakeven for the same period in the prior
year, which included a $0.6 million after-tax charge related to expenses
associated with the Company's secondary offering in March 2002. Earnings before
interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and non-recurring indirect
transaction costs (EBITDA), a key measure used by management to evaluate the
company's operations, for the three months ended March 31, 2002 was $15.7
million, an increase of 50% over the same period in the prior year. Net income
before secondary offering expenses, net of tax ("Adjusted Net Income") was $7.6
million, or $0.22 per diluted share (EPS) for the three months ended March 31,
2002. Overall, the quarter was favorably impacted primarily by the strong
results generated by the Company's Healthcare Staffing segment along with lower
interest expense, a reduction
 in the company's effective corporate income tax
rate and reduced amortization expense.

"We are very pleased with the strength of our first quarter 2002 results," said
Joseph A. Boshart, President and Chief Executive Officer. "These results reflect
not only the continued strength of our core travel staffing operations, but also
impressive results in our other human capital management services. Given the
better than expected performance in the first quarter, the continued strength in
our markets, and other corporate initiatives, management is confident in our
ability to deliver and exceed our previously stated 2002 financial guidance."

Healthcare Staffing 

Cross Country's Healthcare Staffing segment, which is comprised of travel
staffing, clinical research trials staffing and per diem staffing, generated
revenue for the three months ended March 2002 of $143.6 million, an increase of
49% over the same period in the prior year. This growth was driven primarily by
increased numbers of field employees in both the travel nursing and allied
health staffing, average hourly bill rates in all businesses, as well as
incremental revenue generated by the acquisitions of NovaPro, Inc. and
ClinForce, Inc. in January 2002 and March 2001, respectively. Contribution
income, defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization
and corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting segment, for
the three months ended March 31, 2002 was $20.6 million, an increase of 44% over
the same period in the prior year. This growth was primarily due to the same
factors that drove revenue growth, but partially offset by an increase in field
staff compensation and professional liability expense.

Other Human Capital Management Services

Cross Country's Other Human Capital Management Services segment, which is
comprised of the education and training, healthcare consulting services,
physician search and resource management services, generated revenue of $11.2
million for the three months ended March 31, 2002, an increase of 48% over the
same period in the prior year. This increase was driven primarily by the strong
results of the seminars business and consulting business generated by the
Jennings Ryan & Kolb, Inc. and Gill/Balsano acquisitions in March 2002 and May
2001, respectively. Contribution income for the three months ended March 31,
2002 was $1.5 million, a 10% increase versus the prior year.

Corporate Items

During the quarter, the Company completed two acquisitions. In January, Cross
Country purchased the assets of the NovaPro healthcare staffing division (Tampa,
FL) of HRLogic Holdings, Inc., a professional employer organization for an
adjusted purchase price of $7.6 million. In March, the Company purchased the
stock of Jennings Ryan & Kolb, Inc., a healthcare management consulting company,
based in Atlanta, Georgia for $3.8 million, including the assumption of $0.3
million in debt, with half of the purchase price being paid in the form of a
three year earn-out.

In March, the Company completed its secondary offering of 9,000,000 shares of
common stock at an offering price of $26.75 per share. In April, the
underwriters of the secondary offering exercised their over-allotment option
with respect to an aggregate of 700,000 shares of common stock. No proceeds from
this offering were received by the Company.

Effective March 31, the Company made the decision to pursue strategic options
regarding its E-Staff technology, Cross Country's web-enabled scheduling
business. These options include, but are not limited to, the sale of the
technology to a software vendor. As a result of this decision, the assets and
liabilities of E-Staff are classified as a discontinued operation and prior year
results have been restated to reflect this treatment. The first quarter results
include a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, from the discontinued
E-Staff operations.

Expectations for 2002

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are
forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. With respect to Cross
Country's financial targets for the full year 2002, the Company is now
projecting revenue to be between $625 and $650 million and EBITDA before
discontinued operations to be between $69 and $72 million. Second quarter 2002
earnings before discontinued operations are expected to be in the range of $0.23
to $0.24 per diluted share and grow sequentially thereafter, aggregating to a
range of $1.02 to $1.06 per diluted share for the full year 2002. These EPS
targets exclude expenses associated with the Company's secondary offering. It is
Cross Country's intention to update its guidance quarterly.


Cross Country, Inc. is a leading provider of healthcare staffing services in the
United States. The company has an active client base of over 3,000 hospitals,

This release contains forward-looking statements. Statements that are predictive
in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions or that
include words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes,"
"estimates," and similar expressions are forward-looking statements. These
statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that
may cause our actual results and performance to be materially different from any
future results or performance expressed or implied by these forward-looking
statements. These factors include: the following our ability to attract and
retain qualified nurses and other healthcare personnel, costs and availability
of short-term leases for our travel nurses, demand for the healthcare services
we provide, both nationally and in the regions in which we operate, the
functioning of our information systems, the effect of existing or future
government regulation and federal and state legislative and enforcement
initiatives on our business, our clients' ability to pay us for our services,
our ability to successfully implement our acquisition and development
strategies, the effect of liabilities and other claims asserted against us, the
effect of competition in the markets we serve, and other factors set forth under
the caption "RISK FACTORS" in the Company's 10-K for the year ended December 31,
2001.

Although we believe that these statements are based upon reasonable assumptions,
we can not guarantee future results. Given these uncertainties, the
forward-looking statements discussed on this press release might not occur.
While it is the Company's intention to update its guidance quarterly, it should
not be assumed that our silence over time means that actual events are occurring
as expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements.

(a) Adjusted net income represents net income adjusted for tax effected charges
related to the company's secondary offering in March 2002. Adjsuted net income
is presented because the company believes that it more accurately reflects its
operating performance. Adjusted net income is not intended to represent net
income nor has it been presented as an alternative to net income and should not
be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance
prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. As
defined, adjusted net income is not necessarily comparable to other similarly
titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the
method of calcuation.

(a) Defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and
corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting segment.

(b) Defined as income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization
and non-recurring indirect transaction costs. EBITDA should not be considered a
measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles.
Items excluded from EBITDA are significant components in understanding and
assessing financial performance. EBITDA is a key measure used by management to
evaluate our operations and provide useful information to investors. EBITDA
should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash
flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other
financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as
indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Because EBITDA is not a
measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, EBITDA as presented
may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

(c) FTE's represent the average number of contract staffing personnel on a
full-time equivalent basis.

(d) Weeks worked is calculated by multiplying the FTE's by the number of weeks
during the respective period.

(e) Average healthcare staffing revenue per FTE per week is calculated by
dividing the healthcare staffing revenue by the number of weeks worked in the
respective periods. Healthcare staffing revenue includes revenue from permanent
placement nurses.
