"This was a good quarter that sets us up for an improved financial performance in 2018," said William J. Grubbs, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have recovered from the lower operating margins earlier in the year and are growing into the investments made in recruiters and candidate attraction. I am particularly pleased that we are on track for another record year of winning new MSPs that should support our current momentum."

Third quarter consolidated revenue was $228.5 million, an increase of 6% year-over-year and 9% sequentially. On a pro forma basis, revenue was down 5% year-over-year and 3% sequentially. Severe weather forced the closure of the Company's travel nurse and allied office in Florida, as well as several branches, resulting in a relatively minor negative impact to revenue and profitability for the third quarter and, due to the nature of the Company's business, it is expected to result in a more significant impact for the fourth quarter. Consolidated gross profit margin was 26.5%, down 60 basis points year-over-year and down 50 basis points sequentially, driven predominantly by the impact of the Advantage RN acquisition. Net income attributable to common shareholders was $6.7 million compared to $14.1 million in the prior year, which included a gain on derivative liability of $7.1 million. Diluted EPS was $0.19 per share compared to $0.22 per share in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $13.8 million or 6.0% of revenue, as compared with $13.1 million or 6.1% of revenue in the prior year. Adjusted EPS was $0.23 in the current quarter as compared to $0.24 in the prior year and $0.16 in the prior quarter.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, consolidated revenue was $645.4 million, an increase of 6% year-over-year. Consolidated gross profit margin was 26.4%, down 50 basis points year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA was $31.1 million or 4.8% of revenue, as compared with $32.7 million or 5.4% of revenue in the prior year. Net income attributable to common shareholders was $9.6 million, compared to net income of $15.9 million in the prior year, which included a $20.0 million gain on derivative liability. On a diluted per share basis, net income attributable to common shareholders was $0.24, compared to a net loss of $0.04, which excludes the impact of the gain on derivate liability related to the Convertible Notes. Adjusted EPS was $0.44 compared to $0.49 in the prior year.

Quarterly Business Segment Highlights

Nurse and Allied Staffing

Revenue from Nurse and Allied Staffing was $200.5 million, an increase of 7% year-over-year and 11% sequentially. The year-over-year increase in segment revenue was predominantly due to the Advantage RN acquisition. Contribution income in this segment was $20.7 million, up from $19.5 million in the prior year. Average field FTEs increased to 7,706 from 6,954 in the prior year. Revenue per FTE per day was $283 compared to $292 in the prior year, primarily reflecting a change in the mix of business.

Physician Staffing

Revenue from Physician Staffing was $24.9 million, a decrease of 1% year-over-year and an increase of 1% sequentially, with both being driven by changes in volume. Contribution income was $1.3 million, down from $2.4 million in the prior year. Total days filled were 15,777 as compared with 16,639 in the prior year, with declines in physician specialties partly offset by growth in advanced practices. Revenue per day filled was $1,562 as compared with $1,576 in the prior year, representing the impact of the shift in mix from growth in advanced practices, which generally have a lower daily bill rate.

Other Human Capital Management Services

Revenue from Other Human Capital Management Services was $3.1 million, a decrease of 5% year-over-year and 15% sequentially. Segment contribution income was essentially breakeven for the current quarter compared to a loss of $0.2 million in the prior year.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

Cash flow provided by operating activities for the quarter was $3.2 million and $28.7 million for the year-to-date period. At September 30, 2017, the Company had $10.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and a $100.0 million term loan outstanding. There were no borrowings drawn on its $115.0 million revolving credit facility, and $21.6 million of letters of credit outstanding, leaving $93.4 million available for borrowings under the revolving credit facility.

(a)

Acquisition-related contingent consideration represents the fair value and accretion adjustments to the contingent consideration liabilities for the Mediscan acquisition that closed on October 30, 2015 and the US Resources Healthcare acquisition that closed on December 1, 2016.

(b)

Acquisition and integration costs are primarily related to legal and advisory fees for the Advantage RN, LLC acquisition that closed effective July 1, 2017.

(c)

Restructuring costs related to severance and lease consolidations incurred as part of our separate and discrete cost savings initiative.

(d) 

The nine months ended September 30, 2016 includes non-cash impairment charges of $24.3 million ($17.3 million after taxes) related to the Physician Staffing reporting unit.

(e) 

Gain on derivative liability represents the change in the fair value of embedded features of our Convertible Notes up until their repayment.

(f) 

Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 is related to the Company's settlement of its convertible notes on March 17, 2017. Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 relates to the write-off of unamortized debt discount and issuance costs as well as transaction fees and expenses related to the extinguishment of the Company's subordinated term loan.

(g) 

When applying the if-converted method to our Convertible Notes, 3,521,126 shares were included in diluted weighted average shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, there were 967,342 shares included in diluted weighted average shares.

(h) 

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measure, is defined as net income attributable to common shareholders before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, impairment charges, gain on derivative liability, loss on early extinguishment of debt, other income, net, equity compensation, and includes net income attributable to noncontrolling interest in subsidiary. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net income attributable to common shareholders as an indicator of operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes and as one performance measure in its incentive programs for certain members of its management team. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, closely matches the operating measure typically used in the Company's credit facilities in calculating various ratios. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by the Company's consolidated revenue.

(i) 

Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders per diluted share before the diluted EPS impact of acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, impairment charges, gain on
derivative liability, and loss on early extinguishment of debt. Adjusted EPS should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP.  Management presents Adjusted EPS because it believes that Adjusted EPS is a useful supplement to its reported EPS as an indicator of operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EPS as one performance measure in its annual cash incentive program for certain members of its management team. Management believes it provides a more useful comparison of the Company's underlying business performance from period to period and is more representative of the future earnings capacity of the Company.

(j) 

Tax impact on the non-GAAP items is related to the impairment charges on indefinite-lived intangible assets of the Physician Staffing business for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. There is no tax impact on the other items due to the Company's full valuation allowance for all reported periods.

(k) 

Segment data provided is in accordance with the Segment Reporting Topic of the FASB ASC.

(l) 

Contribution income is defined as income or loss from operations before depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, impairment charges, and corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting segment. Contribution income is a financial measure used by management when assessing segment performance.

(m) 

Unallocated corporate overhead includes corporate compensation and benefits, and general and administrative expenses including rent and utilities, computer supplies and expenses, insurance, professional expenses, corporate-wide projects (initiatives), and public company expense.

(n) 

Gross profit is defined as revenue from services less direct operating expenses. The Company's gross profit excludes allocated depreciation and amortization expense. Gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by revenue from services.

(o) 

FTEs represent the average number of Nurse and Allied Staffing contract personnel on a full-time equivalent basis.

(p) 

Average revenue per FTE per day is calculated by dividing the Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue by the number of days worked in the respective periods. Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue also includes revenue from the permanent placement of nurses.

(q) 

Days filled is calculated by dividing the total hours invoiced during the period by 8 hours. This method does not reflect the impact of revenue generated from permanent placements, reimbursed expenses, discounts and allowances, and the impact from accruals and adjustments recorded for financial statement purposes.

(r) 

Revenue per day filled is calculated by dividing revenue invoiced by days filled for the period presented.
