OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Employment Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE Amex: JOB) today announced it will not be able to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K within fifteen calendar days following the prescribed due date of December 31, 2012 as noted in our NT 10-K filing on December 31, 2012.  The audit of the financial statements is in process however as previously announced on November 30, 2012, the Company dismissed BDO USA, LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm and engaged Friedman LLP as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm.  The audit scope of Friedman LLP increased due to the fact BDO USA, LLP would not consent to referencing its audit report of the Company's prior year financial statements.  The Company expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K on or before March 1, 2013.  No assurances, however, can be given that this date will be met.   

Commenting on the Company's status, Michael Schroering, Chairman of the Board & CEO stated, "We continue to work through the year-end audit with Friedman, LLP and anticipate filing our Form 10-K soon."  Preliminary and unaudited financial information is provided in the tables below.

Mr. Schroering continued, "We had several non-cash items which negatively impacted results by approximately $500,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2012.   These items relate to an intangible asset impairment charge in our Agricultural division as we lost a major customer in early 2012 and the acceleration of stock based compensation upon a change in control announced in September 2012.  While we continue to deliver revenue growth, the execution in achieving that growth needs to improve.  We need to integrate prior year acquisitions fully into General Employment's operations.  We expect to realize some consolidation benefits and start leveraging our respective client bases by cross selling complimentary service offerings.  I'm excited about my appointment to the board of directors and look forward to working with the entire organization in taking the business to the next level."

"For our quarter ended December 31, 2012, we saw continued strong revenue growth with the better management of expenses.  We anticipate reporting 25% growth in revenue while posting a modest operating profit in the quarter."

"We have spoken with Wells Fargo and secured a one year extension on our credit facility," added Mr. Schroering.  "We continue to work diligently on the year end audit and will file our Annual Report on Form 10-K as soon as practical."
