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."
