The Company further announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock.

Q3 2021 Highlights:

Nine Month 2021 Highlights:

1Non-GAAP financial measure. See reconciliation at end for details.

"Our third quarter results were exceptionally strong as we achieved sequential and year-over-year growth across our key financial measures. In fact, the third quarter is a continuation of both top and bottom line sequential growth in each of our quarterly results for the 2021 nine-month period," said Beth A. Garvey, President and CEO.

"We continue to see positive trends across our end markets with Real Estate showing positive tailwinds from a market recovery and pent-up demand. Professional segment benefited from an increase in permanent placements and strong activity in IT Consulting. Light Industrial continues to perform although results were essentially flat compared to the strong third quarter 2020 comparison, given the significant shift to online shopping activity during peak pandemic levels.

"While we see improvements in the macro environment and a very positive industry outlook for workforce solutions, the markets we serve continue to face heightened labor shortages and wage inflation, especially in our Real Estate and Light Industrial segments. Overall, we remain focused on progressive improvement throughout our organization as well as working with our client partners on innovative ways to attract, secure and retain talent. We are tracking well toward a solid finish to the year as we build organic growth and continue to explore M&A opportunities."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial results of BGSF, Inc. are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. To help the readers understand the Company's financial performance, the Company supplements its GAAP financial results with Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income (loss), balance sheet or statement of cash flows of a company. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), net income (loss) per diluted share, operating income (loss), or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or measure of our liquidity. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are useful performance measures and are used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under GAAP can provide alone. In addition, the financial covenants in our credit agreement are based on EBITDA as defined in the credit agreement.

We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, transaction fees and other non-capital information technology project expenses ("IT roadmap") and certain non-cash expenses such as impairment losses, the gain on contingent consideration and share-based compensation expense that management does not consider in assessing our on-going operating performance.

We define "Adjusted EPS" as diluted earnings per share eliminating amortization expense of intangible assets from acquisitions, contingent consideration gains, and certain specific events, such as transaction fees and the IT roadmap, and certain non-cash expenses, that management does not consider in assessing our on-going operating performance, net of the respective income tax effect.
