MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Health Fitness Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: HFIT), a leading provider of integrated employee health and productivity management solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2008.
For the second quarter, revenue increased 10.8 percent to $18.8 million, from $17.0 million for the same period in 2007. Gross profit during the quarter rose to $5.5 million, from $4.8 million during the prior-year period. Operating income totaled $0.64 million for the quarter compared to $0.38 million for the same period in 2007. Net earnings were $0.36 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, versus $0.17 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.
"For the third quarter in a row, we reported double-digit revenue gains. We are also pleased with the improvement in gross margins during the second quarter. While revenue from our fitness management segment was essentially flat, we were able to replace the revenue lost from contract cancellations that occurred during the first six months of 2007. Our health management segment continued to experience double-digit growth, with the second quarter resulting in new customer commitments and expansion of existing customers," said Gregg Lehman, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer. "At the same time, we have not been immune from the challenging economy, which has lengthened sales cycles and delayed some customer commitments."
Operating expenses as a percent of revenue were 26 perc0,

Second Quarter Commitments and RFPs
During the quarter, the company secured two new health management commitments, up-sold health management services to two fitness management customers and expanded services for four fitness management customers, all of which may realize annualized revenue of $2.4 million. This total annualized revenue will be partially offset by a potential annualized revenue loss of $0.2 million from fitness management contract cancellations. Additionally, during the 2008 second quarter, the company received 25 new RFPs for health management services and three new RFPs for fitness management services.
Lehman added, "To counteract longer customer evaluation periods, we are refining our health management sales approach to focus on our unique value proposition and ability to reduce costs during the first year of a customer engagement. For the interim, I have taken a more direct managerial role within our sales organization to oversee this important work and to ensure that we are maximizing our sales opportunities. We believe that by focusing on lowering employers' direct and indirect health care costs, coupled with a solution-based sales approach, we can better cultivate existing and upcoming RFPs and grow the number of customer commitments."
2008 First-Half Results
For the six months ended June 30, 2008, revenue increased 12 percent to $37.5 million, from $33.6 million for the same period last year. Gross profit increased 13.7 percent to $10.9 million from $9.6 million for the prior-year period.
Operating income was $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008, compared to $1.3 million during the prior-year period, reflecting infrastructure investments the company has made to address future business growth. Net earnings applicable to common shareholders totaled $0.7 million, flat with the prior-year period. Net earnings per diluted share totaled $0.03 compared to $0.03 for the same period last year.
For the six months ended June 30, 2008, the company received a total of 11 health management commitments, up-sold health management services to two fitness management customers and expanded services for four fitness management customers, all of which may realize annualized revenue of $4.4 million. This total annualized revenue will be partially offset by a potential annualized revenue loss of $0.6 million from fitness management contract cancellations.
Lehman concluded, "For the first six months of 2008, we have received a total of 51 health management and 16 fitness management RFPs, which is comparable to the number we received halfway through 2007. Despite the challenging economy, a number of these RFPs have developed into an active sales pipeline that includes an above-average number of potential opportunities. As we enter the last half of 2008, we are confident in the strength of our service offerings, our ability to secure new customer commitments and the continued growth of our health management segment, which drives the opportunity to improve operating margins."
The company ended the second quarter of 2008 with $0.2 million in cash,
compared to $1.9 million at the end of 2007, the decrease of which reflects
the company's $2.3 million stock repurchase during the second quarter of
2008. Working capital at June 30, 2008 totaled $7.6 million, a decrease of
approximately $0.9 million compared to December 31, 2007. At June 30, 2008,
the company did not have any long-term debt and stockholders' equity
totaled $25.5 million.
2008 Second Quarter Business Segment Information
Revenue and gross profit information by segment:
REVENUE Q2 2008 Q2 2007
Staffing Services $4,569 $3,921
Program and Consulting Services 3,760 2,609
Total Health Mgt $8,329 $6,530
GROSS PROFIT Q2 2008 Q2 2007
Staffing Services $1,238 $1,010
Program and Consulting Services 1,713 1,522
Total Health Mgt $2,951 $2,532
During the 2008 second quarter, health management segment revenue grew 27.5 percent compared to the same period in 2007. Within the segment, staffing services revenue increased 16.5 percent, which is attributable to new customers and the expansion of services to existing customers. Program and consulting services revenue grew 44.1 percent compared to the 2007 second quarter. This increase is driven by new and existing customers and the resulting increase in biometric screening and health coaching and advising services.
Gross margin for the health management segment was 35.4 percent for the
quarter, compared to 38.8 percent for the prior-year period. This decrease
is due in part to lower pricing for new business won in 2007, and the cost
of additional screening and health coaching staff hired in late 2007 to
meet forecasted future demand for these services.
REVENUE Q2 2008 Q2 2007
Staffing Services $9,837 $9,821
Program and Consulting Services 650 628
Total Fitness Mgt $ 10,487 $ 10,449
GROSS PROFIT Q2 2008 Q2 2007
Staffing Services $2,350 $2,002
Program and Consulting Services 236 221
Total Fitness Mgt $2,586 $2,223
During the 2008 second quarter, fitness management segment revenue was essentially flat with the same period last year, which reflects the company's success in replacing revenue lost from 2007 contract cancellations.
Gross margin for the fitness management segment increased to 24.7 percent, from 21.3 percent during the prior-year period, which is primarily due to higher margins on new staffing services business and improved margins for personal training services.
Share Repurchase Plan

Under this plan, the company repurchased 1.14 million shares of its common stock on the open market in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 10b-18 and other pertinent rules and regulations.

Forward Looking Statements
Certain statements in this release, including, without limitation,
management's belief that operating expenses, as a percent of revenue, will
decline as the company focuses on revenue growth and productivity
enhancements; management's belief that by focusing on lowering employer's
direct and indirect health care costs, coupled with a solution-based sales
approach, the company can better cultivate existing and upcoming RFPs and
grow the number of customer commitments; management's belief that economic
conditions are causing some companies to lengthen their evaluation periods;
and management's belief that the company, despite a challenging economy, is
confident in the strength of its service offerings, its ability to secure
new customer commitments and its opportunity to improve operating margins,
are forward-looking statements. In addition, the estimated annualized
revenue value of our new and lost customers is a forward looking statement,
which is based upon an estimate of the anticipated annualized revenue to be
realized or lost. Such information should be used only as an indication of
the activity we have recently experienced in our two business segments.
These estimates, when considered together, should not be considered an
indication of the total net, incremental revenue growth we expect to
generate in 2008 or in any year, as actual net growth may differ from these
estimates due to actual staffing levels, participation rates and service
duration, in addition to other revenue we may lose in the future due to
customer termination. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that any RFPs
we receive will develop into customer commitments. Any statements that are
not based upon historical facts, including the outcome of events that have
not yet occurred and our expectations for future performance, are
forward-looking statements. The words "potential," "believe," "estimate,"
"expect," "intend," "may," "could," "will," "plan," "anticipate," and
similar words and expressions are intended to identify forward-looking
statements. Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and
expectations of our management. Actual results may vary materially from
those contained in forward-looking statements based on a number of factors
including, without limitation, our inability to deliver the health
management services demanded by major corporations and other clients, the
level of demand for our services, customer acceptance of higher service
pricing, our inability to successfully cross-sell health management
services to our fitness management clients, our inability to successfully
obtain new business opportunities, our failure to have sufficient resources
to make investments, our ability to make investments and implement
strategies successfully, our ability to limit and manage expenses,
continued delays in obtaining new commitments and implementing services,
and other factors disclosed from time to time in our filings with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission including our Form 10-K for 2007 as
filed with the SEC. You should take such factors into account when making
investment decisions and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these
