Computer Task Group’s net income falls 1.6 percent

Computer Task Group’s net income fell 1.6 percent from a year ago in the second quarter, but the company was encouraged by increases in its revenues and operating income.

The Buffalo-based information technology staffing, software and services company reported net income of $4 million, or 24 cents per share. CTG noted that last year’s $4.1 million in net income included a one-time gain of $400,000 in life insurance proceeds paid after the death of CTG co-founder and director Randolph A. Marks. Without that non-operational gain, CTG’s earnings per share last year would have been 22 cents, instead of 25.

In the second quarter of this year, CTG’s revenues were up 0.4 percent to $107 million, and its operating income increased 4.2 percent, to $6.4 million.

James R. Boldt, CTG’s chairman and chief executive officer, said the company’s revenue growth, to $107.1 million, was lower than expected due to reduction in head count at an unidentified “large staffing client” and delays in the startup of electronic medical record projects.

“Our focus on higher margin solutions work and the health care market is clearly paying off, with the operating margin in the quarter reaching 6 percent, the highest level in over a decade,” Boldt said in a statement.

CTG said health care revenue was down.

CTG revised downward its guidance for its 2013 full-year results, citing some of the same factors that hampered its revenue growth in the second quarter.

For all of 2013, CTG now projects revenues of $428 million to $436 million, and diluted net income per share of 93 cents to 99 cents. Its previous projections were revenues of $450 million to $460 million, and diluted net income per share of $1.02 to $1.12.

“Our earnings growth in 2013 will be less than we initially expected as our hospital clients deal with reimbursement reductions caused by the U.S. federal budget sequestration,” Boldt said in a statement.
