VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barrett Business Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:BBSI) reported today net income of $3.7 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to a net income of $2.9 million for the third quarter of 2009. Diluted income per share for the 2010 third quarter was $.36, as compared to diluted earnings per share of $.28 for the same quarter a year ago. 

Net revenues for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010 totaled $73.9 million, an increase of approximately $8.4 million or 12.8% over the $65.5 million for the same quarter in 2009.

The Company reports its Professional Employer Organization services ("PEO") revenues on a net basis because it is not the primary obligor for the services provided by the Company's PEO clients to their customers. The gross revenues and cost of revenues information below, although not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), is presented for comparison purposes and because management believes such information is more informative as to the level of the Company's business activity and more useful in managing its operations.

Gross revenues of $332.9 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010 increased 21.9% over the similar period in 2009. 

A reconciliation of non-GAAP gross revenues to net revenues is as follows:

For the third quarters ended September 30, 2010 and 2009:

For the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009:

Outlook for Fourth Quarter 2010

The Company also disclosed today limited financial guidance with respect to its operating results for the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2010. The Company expects gross revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 to range from $321 million to $326 million, as compared to $270.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, and anticipates diluted earnings for the fourth quarter of 2010 to range from $.28 to $.32 per share, as compared to diluted income per share of $.21 for the same period a year ago. A reconciliation of estimated gross revenues to estimated GAAP net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 is not included because PEO revenues and cost of PEO revenues for the period are not reasonably estimable.
