Thursday, August 10, 2006
     TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 10 — Ablest Inc. today reported that revenue for the fiscal second quarter ended July 2, 2006 increased 4.9 percent to $34.3 million as compared to revenue of $32.8 million in the 2005 second quarter. Net income decreased to $285,000 or $0.10 per diluted share compared to $574,000 or $0.20 per diluted share for the similar period last year. Net income in the fiscal second quarter was negatively impacted because of higher than planned increase in workers’ compensation expense accruals of approximately $254,000.
     Revenues for the first 27 weeks of fiscal 2006 increased 10.4 percent to $70.2 million from $63.6 million in the corresponding 26-week period of the prior year. For the six months ended July 2, 2006, net income was $633,000 or $0.21 per diluted share compared to the first half of 2005 when the company reported net income of $838,000 equal to $0.29 cents per diluted share.
     Kurt R. Moore, president and chief executive officer, said, “The company experienced an increase in claims costs and incidence rates in 2006 which required an increase in our workers’ compensation expense estimates. Senior management is addressing this matter to reduce the growth rate of the expense.”
