Income from continuing operations (attributable to common stockholders) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $82 million as compared to $80 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. For the quarter, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $1.17, a 4% increase over the prior year, and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $1.34, a 2% increase over the prior year.

“We were very pleased with the fourth quarter results and ending the fiscal year on such a strong note” said John Haley, chief executive officer. “We had three significant goals for fiscal year 2014: enhance the capabilities the OneExchange platform; re-align the Risk Consulting and Software business; and direct resources to long-term growth initiatives. While we experienced some pressure on revenues this past year, I’m pleased to say that we’ve accomplished our organizational goals in building the foundation for long-term growth. OneExchange is the only multi-carrier platform in the market today that can address all employee populations on a fully insured and self-insured basis, the Risk Consulting and Software business has returned to historical profitability, and the divestiture of the Brokerage business provided capital to refocus our resources for more strategic growth initiatives, particularly the enhancement of OneExchange through the acquisition of Liazon.”
