(0.02) *UnauditedCEO CommentsCommenting on the results, Nancy Lurker, chief executive officer of PDI, Inc., noted, "Revenues from contracts signed in 2012 have begun to positively impact our top line, resulting in revenue for the first quarter of 2013 increasing 36% to $42.9 million compared to the same period last year. Gross profit increased $1.1 million to $8.5 million even though, as anticipated, our gross profit percentages began to trend lower due to increasing competitive pressures. As a result of our ongoing focus on lower costs, operating expenses declined $1.4 million and we are pleased to note that for the first quarter of 2013 we achieved operating income of $2.3 million compared to a loss of $0.2 million for the first quarter last year."
Ms. Lurker continued, "As we have previously discussed, we entered 2013 with a strong backlog of business under contract. Given the strong first quarter 2013 results and assuming a reasonable level of new business wins and no early termination of existing contracts, we still anticipate revenue for the full year to be approximately 25% higher than 2012. We also still expect gross profit percentages to continue to decline over the course of 2013, resulting in gross profit for the full year to be at or below the level achieved in 2012.
"We previously announced that 2013 would be a year of investment and expansion of our strategic focus. Given the dynamics of our current core businesses, we are committed to continuing to grow our top line, streamline costs and to develop more predictable, higher growth and higher margin businesses. While we will continue to aggressively pursue ongoing cost improvements, we do expect our expenses to increase slightly to support investment in areas aimed at differentiating and further strengthening our core offerings. Strategically, we also will continue to pursue full product commercialization partnering opportunities that leverage our current PDI infrastructure and capabilities through Interpace BioPharma, our specialty biopharmaceutical division. In addition, we plan to launch a new Group DCA product that will connect health care providers, sales representatives and other promotional channels in a new and unique way. We expect to see tangible results in each of these initiatives by the end of 2013."
First Quarter Business Review Revenue- For the first quarter of 2013, revenue of $42.9 million was $11.2 million or 36% higher than the first quarter of 2012 driven by increases in the company's Sales Services segment.
Gross Profit- For the first quarter of 2013, gross profit of $8.5 million was $1.1 million higher than the first quarter of 2012. The overall gross profit percentage decreased to 20% in 2013 from 23% in 2012.
Total Operating Expenses- Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2013 of $6.2 million were $1.4 million lower than 2012. The decrease is primarily a result of the company's continuing focus on cost reduction, right-sizing of the businesses and absence of amortization of acquired intangible assets beginning in the first quarter of 2013.
Operating Income- For the first quarter of 2013 operating income was $2.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2012. The $2.5 million improvement in 2013 operating income was the result of higher revenue and lower expenses.
Liquidity and Cash Flow- Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure defined in the release) for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.9 million compared to $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2012. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the first quarter were $53.3 million, up $0.6 million from December 31, 2012. Cash and equivalents did not increase in line with Adjusted EBITDA primarily due to a net increase in working capital requirements.
As of March 31, 2013, the company's cash equivalents were predominantly invested in U.S. Treasury money market funds and the company had no commercial debt.
Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresIn addition to the United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, results provided throughout this document, PDI has provided certain non-GAAP financial measures to help evaluate the results of its performance. The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP financial measures, are useful to both management and investors in analyzing the company's ongoing business and operating performance. The company believes that providing the non-GAAP information to investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, allows investors to view the company's financial results in the way that management views financial results.
In this document, the company discusses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by management to measure cash flow of the ongoing business. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income or loss, plus depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, and other non-cash expenses. The table below includes a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.Adjusted EBITDA (Unaudited)($ in thousands)1st Quarter EndedMarch 31,20132012Operating income (loss) $
