Command Center, Inc. (OTCQB: CCNI), a national provider of on-demand and temporary staffing solutions, reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 25, 2015.

Today’s press release is supplemental to the company’s full year 2015 earnings release, which was disseminated yesterday and available here. Command Center has also scheduled a conference call for next week to review its 2015 results. Details of the call can be found below.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015 was $21.9 million compared to $24.0 million in the fourth quarter 2014. The decrease was due to the decline in demand for temporary staffing services in the Bakken region of North Dakota, a region that is generally economically dependent on the health of the oil industry.

Gross margins in the fourth quarter of 2015 were 26.2% compared to 29.7% in the same year-ago quarter. The decrease was primarily due to the reduction in higher-margin revenue from North Dakota.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2015 were $5.2 million compared to $5.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in executive bonuses.

Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2015 was $0.5 million compared to $1.7 million in the same year-ago quarter.

Net income in the fourth quarter of 2015 was $0.3 million or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million or $0.02 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014.

EBITDA (a non-GAAP term defined below) in the fourth quarter of 2015 was $843,000 compared to $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Adjusted Net Income (a non-GAAP term defined below) in the fourth quarter was $843,000 or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to $2.0 million or $0.03 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Management Commentary

“While our consolidated fourth quarter results were negatively affected by economic conditions in North Dakota related to the oil and gas industries, our remaining branches performed very well, with revenue up by 8.2% compared to the same quarter a year ago,” said Command Center’s president and CEO, Bubba Sandford. “During the fourth quarter, we repurchased approximately 440,000 shares of the company’s stock and have $3.6 million remaining on the plan.

“In 2016, we will continue to evaluate our existing stores in order to drive efficiencies and increase productivity and profitability. We will also consider new store openings to increase concentrations in our current markets. In addition, our strong balance sheet will allow us to remain opportunistic in seeking out acquisition opportunities. As we have stated, we are confident this strategy is the most optimal for driving long-term shareholder value.”

Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements that are other than statements of historical facts. These statements are subject to uncertainties and risks including, but not limited to, the severity and duration of the general economic downturn, the availability of workers’ compensation insurance coverage, the availability of capital and suitable financing for the company's activities, the ability to attract, develop and retain qualified store managers and other personnel, product and service demand and acceptance, changes in technology, the impact of competition and pricing, government regulation, and other risks set forth in the Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 24, 2016, and in other statements filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the company also presents non-GAAP terms Adjusted Net Income and EBITDA. Adjusted Net Income is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and specifically identified one-time earnings or expenses. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The company uses Adjusted Net Income and EBITDA as financial measures since management believes investors find these to be useful tools to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results, and as a complement to net income and other financial performance measures. Adjusted Net Income and EBITDA are not intended to represent net income as defined by GAAP, and such information should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP.

The following tables present a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income to net income and EBITDA to net income for the periods presented as well as per basic share information (in thousands except per share data):
