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."

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
