BRADENTON, FL, February 28, 2006 - Gevity (NASDAQ: GVHR), the leading provider of a comprehensive insourced employment management solution for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today that for the year ended December 31, 2005 revenues reached $608.8 million, up 4.0% from $585.5 million in 2004, while diluted earnings per share rose 5.6% to $1.31 from pro forma diluted earnings per share of $1.24.
In 2005 we delivered on our stated growth and profitability goals and completed the final stages of the three year transition of our business model said Erik Vonk, Gevitys Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. We have substantially upgraded our comprehensive solution through the implementation of the 2005 Generation of Services, which puts true value-enhancing HR support for Gevity's clients at its core by bundling workforce alignment services with administrative relief and business protection support. On the insurance side, we have added carrier choice and significantly reduced the imbedded risk dynamic through our insurance risk neutrality strategy. We now offer industry leading multi-carrier health benefits choices and a workers compensation option with far less exposure to risk. As a result of this transformation, our company is now fully focused on accelerating growth based on the transfer of HR value to our clients, rather than on the assumption of medical or workers compensation risk. We expect this to have a positive impact on our financial model as we increasingly generate more professional service fees and depend less on volatile insurance contributions.
