BARRETT BUSINESS SERVICES INC. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Position and Operating Results (Form 10-Q)

0

General

Company Background. Barrett Business Services, Inc. ("BBSI," the "Company,"
"our" or "we"), is a leading provider of business management solutions for small
and mid-sized companies. The Company has developed a management platform that
integrates a knowledge-based approach from the management consulting industry
with tools from the human resource outsourcing industry. This platform, through
the effective leveraging of human capital, helps our business owner clients run
their businesses more effectively. We believe this platform, delivered through a
decentralized organizational structure, differentiates BBSI from our
competitors. BBSI was incorporated in Maryland in 1965.

Business strategy. Our strategy is to align local operational teams with the mission of small and medium business owners, thereby creating value for their business. To do this, BBSI:

• partners with business owners to leverage their investment in human resources

capital through a highly focused and results-oriented approach;

• brings predictability to every client organization thanks to a three-tier system

management platform; and

• allows business owners to focus on their core business by reducing

organizational complexity and maximization of productivity.


Business Organization. We operate a decentralized delivery model using
operationally-focused business teams, typically located within 50 miles of our
client companies. These teams are led by senior level business generalists and
include senior level professionals with expertise in human resources,
organizational development, risk mitigation and workplace safety and various
types of administration, including payroll. These teams are responsible for
growth of their operations, and for providing strategic leadership, guidance and
expert consultation to our client companies. The decentralized structure fosters
autonomous decision-making in which business teams deliver plans that closely
align with the objectives of each business owner client. This structure also
provides a means of incubating talent to support increased growth and capacity.
We support clients with employees located in 43 states and the District of
Columbia through a network of 53 branch locations in California, Oregon,
Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Washington, Idaho, Maryland, Nevada, Utah,
Delaware, North Carolina, New Mexico, Tennessee, and Virginia. We also have
several smaller recruiting locations in our general market areas, which are
under the direction of a branch office.

Services Overview. BBSI's core purpose is to advocate for business owners,
particularly in the small and mid-sized business segment. Our evolution from an
entrepreneurially run company to a professionally managed organization has
helped to form our view that all businesses experience inflection points at key
stages of growth. The insights gained through our own growth, along with the
trends we see in working with more than 7,500 companies each day, define our
approach to guiding business owners through the challenges associated with being
an employer. BBSI's business teams align with each business owner client through
a structured three-tiered progression. In doing so, business teams focus on the
objectives of each business owner and deliver planning, guidance and resources
in support of those objectives.

Level 1: Tactical alignment

The first stage focuses on the mutual setting of expectations and is essential
to a successful client relationship. It begins with a process of assessment and
discovery in which the business owner's business objectives, attitudes, and
culture are aligned with BBSI's processes, controls and culture. This stage
includes an implementation process, which addresses the administrative
components of employment.

                                       21

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Level 2: Dynamic relationship

The second stage of the relationship emphasizes organizational development as a means of achieving each client’s business goals. The emphasis is on improving processes, developing best practices, training supervisors and developing leadership.

Level 3: Strategic advice

With an emphasis on advocacy on behalf of the business owner, the third stage of
the relationship is more strategic and forward-looking with a goal of
cultivating an environment in which all efforts are directed by the mission and
long-term objectives of the business owner.

In addition to serving as a resource and guide, BBSI has the ability to provide
workers' compensation coverage as a means of meeting statutory requirements and
protecting our clients from employment-related injury claims. Through our
third-party administrators, we provide claims management services for our
clients. We work to manage and reduce job injury claims, identify fraudulent
claims and structure optimal work programs, including modified duty.

Results of operations

The spread of COVID-19 and resulting restrictions and labor shortages across the
United States are having, and will continue to have, a negative impact on the
operating results of the Company. As our clients respond to the effects of
efforts to address the consequences of the pandemic, including the measures
taken at various levels of government to contain the virus's spread, we expect
that our ability to add new customers, as well as to grow revenues from existing
customers, will be adversely affected due to economic slowdown, business
closures, labor shortages and reductions in hours worked.

The following table sets forth the percentages of total revenues represented by
selected items in the Company's condensed consolidated statements of operations
for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 ($ in
thousands):

We report professional employer ("PEO") services revenues net of direct payroll
costs because we are not the primary obligor for wage payments to our clients'
employees. However, management believes that gross billings and wages are useful
in understanding the volume of our business activity and serve as an important
performance metric in managing our operations, including the preparation of
internal operating forecasts and establishing executive compensation performance
goals. We therefore present for purposes of analysis gross billings and wage
information for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.

Because safety incentives represent consideration payable to PEO customers,
safety incentive costs are netted against PEO revenue in our consolidated
statements of operations. We therefore present below for purposes of analysis
non-GAAP gross workers' compensation expense, which represents workers'
compensation costs including safety incentive costs. We believe this non-GAAP
measure is useful in evaluating the total costs of our workers' compensation
program. In July 2020, the Company began limiting its safety incentive offering
in certain markets, resulting in a reduction to safety incentive costs.

In monitoring and evaluating the performance of our operations, management also
reviews the following ratios, which represent selected amounts as a percentage
of gross billings. Management believes these ratios are useful in understanding
the efficiency and profitability of our service offerings.

The presentation of revenue on a net basis and the relative contributions of
staffing and PEO services revenue can create volatility in our gross margin as a
percentage of revenue. A relative increase in PEO services revenue will result
in a higher gross margin as a percentage of revenue. Improvement in gross margin
percentage occurs because incremental client services revenue dollars are
reported as revenue net of all related direct payroll and safety incentive
costs.

We refer to employees of our PEO clients as worksite employees ("WSEs").
Management reviews average and ending WSE growth to monitor and evaluate the
performance of our operations. Average WSEs are calculated by dividing the
number of unique individuals paid in each month by the number of months in the
period. Ending WSEs represents the number of unique individuals paid in the last
month of the period.

Three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020

Net income for the third quarter of 2021 amounted to $14.9 million compared to
net income of $18.5 million for the third quarter of 2020. Diluted income per
share for the third quarter of 2021 was $1.96 compared to diluted income per
share of $2.40 for the third quarter of 2020.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 totaled $247.0 million, an increase of
$19.4 million or 8.5% over the third quarter of 2020, which reflects an increase
in the Company's PEO service fee revenue of $18.9 million or 9.5% and an
increase in staffing services revenue of $0.5 million or 1.9%.

Our growth in PEO service revenues was primarily attributable to an increase in
average billing per WSE as well as an increase in the average number of WSEs.
The increase in staffing services revenue was due primarily to the reopening of
business after the impacts of COVID-19 during the prior year period.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2021 totaled $60.2 million or 24.3% of
revenue compared to $59.2 million or 26.1% of revenue for the third quarter of
2020. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of revenues is a result of
the factors discussed within the separate components of gross margin below.

Direct payroll costs for the third quarter of 2021 totaled $21.9 million or 8.9%
of revenue compared to $21.5 million or 9.4% of revenue for the third quarter of
2020. The decrease in direct payroll costs percentage was primarily due to the
increase in PEO services and decrease in staffing services within the mix of our
customer base compared to the third quarter of 2020.

Payroll taxes and benefits for the third quarter of 2021 totaled $115.0 million
or 46.6% of revenue compared to $100.1 million or 44.0% of revenue for the third
quarter of 2020. The increase in payroll taxes and benefits as a percentage of
revenues is due primarily to an increase in newly hired WSEs, which increased
the amount of payroll subject to payroll taxes in the third quarter of 2021 as
compared to the third quarter of 2020.

Workers' compensation expense for the third quarter of 2021 totaled $49.8
million or 20.2% of revenue compared to $46.7 million or 20.5% for the third
quarter of 2020. The decrease in workers' compensation expense as a percentage
of revenue is primarily related to favorable claims development as compared to
the third quarter of 2020.

                                       24
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the third quarter of
2021 totaled $41.2 million or 16.7% of revenue compared to $35.6 million or
15.6% of revenue for the third quarter of 2020. The increase of $5.6 million in
SG&A expense was primarily attributable to lower employee related expenses in
the prior year due to reductions implemented in response to the COVID-19
pandemic that have since been reversed as well as increased variable employee
compensation and incentive pay in the current year related to stronger than
expected financial results.

Other income, net for the third quarter of 2021 was $1.8 million, compared to
other income, net of $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2020. The increase
was primarily attributable to an increase in investment income in the third
quarter of 2021.

Our effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2021 was 23.4%, compared
to 21.6% for the third quarter of 2020. Our income tax rate typically differs
from the federal statutory tax rate of 21% primarily due to state taxes and
federal and state tax credits.

Nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020

Net income for the first nine months of 2021 amounted to $27.5 million compared
to net income of $26.6 million for the first nine months of 2020. Diluted income
per share for the first nine months of 2021 was $3.59 compared to diluted income
per share of $3.46 for the first nine months of 2020.

Revenues for the first nine months of 2021 totaled $698.6 million, an increase
of $51.0 million or 7.9% over the first nine months of 2020, which reflects an
increase in the Company's PEO service fee revenue of $47.1 million or 8.2% and
an increase in staffing services revenue of $3.8 million or 5.1%.

The increase in PEO service revenues was primarily attributable to an increase
in average billing per WSE as well as an increase in the average number of WSEs.
The increase in staffing services revenue was due primarily to the reopening of
business after the impacts of COVID-19 during the prior year period.

Gross margin for the first nine months of 2021 totaled $148.6 million or 21.3%
of revenue compared to $131.9 million or 20.4% of revenue for the first nine
months of 2020. The increase in gross margin as a percentage of revenues is
primarily a result of the factors discussed within the separate components of
gross margin below.

Direct payroll costs for the first nine months of 2021 totaled $58.8 million or
8.4% of revenue compared to $56.3 million or 8.7% of revenue for the first nine
months of 2020. The decrease in direct payroll costs percentage was primarily
due to the increase in PEO services and decrease in staffing services within the
mix of our customer base in the first nine months of 2021 as compared to the
first nine months of 2020.

Payroll taxes and benefits for the first nine months of 2021 totaled $349.5
million or 50.0% of revenue compared to $313.3 million or 48.4% of revenue for
the first nine months of 2020. The increase in payroll taxes and benefits as a
percentage of revenues is primarily due to an increase in newly hired WSEs,
which increased the amount of payroll subject to payroll taxes in the first nine
months of 2021 as compared to the first nine months of 2020.

Workers' compensation expense for the first nine months of 2021 totaled $141.7
million or 20.3% of revenue compared to $146.1 million or 22.6% of revenue for
the first nine months of 2020. The decrease in workers' compensation expense as
a percentage of revenue was primarily due to favorable claims development as
well as a favorable adjustment of $7.5 million related to prior period claims
during the first nine months of 2021, compared to a favorable adjustment of $5.2
million in the first nine months of 2020.

SG&A expenses for the first nine months of 2021 totaled $113.9 million or 16.3%
of revenue compared to $101.0 million or 15.6% of revenue for the first nine
months of 2020. The increase of $12.9 million in SG&A expense was primarily
attributable to an increase in IT expense related to the launch of the myBBSI
portal in 2020 and increased employee related expenses due to prior year
reductions during the COVID-19 pandemic that have since been reversed and
increased variable employee compensation and incentive pay in the current year
related to stronger than expected financial results.

Other income, net for the first nine months of 2021 was $5.1 million as compared
to other income, net of $5.7 million for the first nine months of 2020. The
decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in investment income in the
first nine months of 2021 because of lower interest rates.

Our effective tax rate for the first nine months of 2021 was 23.3%, compared to 19.7% for the first nine months of 2020. Our income tax rate generally differs from the federal statutory tax rate by 21%, mainly due to state taxes and federal taxes and state tax credits.

Fluctuations in quarterly operating results

We have historically experienced significant fluctuations in our quarterly
operating results, including losses in the first quarter of each year, and
expect such fluctuations to continue in the future. Our operating results may
fluctuate due to a number of factors such as seasonality, wage limits on
statutory payroll taxes, claims experience for workers' compensation, demand for
our services, and competition. Payroll taxes, as a component of cost of
revenues, generally decline throughout a calendar year as the applicable
statutory wage bases for federal and state unemployment taxes and Social
Security taxes are exceeded on a per employee basis. Our revenue levels may be
higher in the third quarter due to the effect of increased business activity of
our customers' businesses in the agriculture, food processing and forest
products-related industries. In addition, revenues in the fourth quarter may be
reduced by many customers' practice of operating on holiday-shortened schedules.
Workers' compensation expense varies with both the frequency and severity of
workplace injury claims reported during a quarter and the estimated future costs
of such claims. In addition, positive or adverse loss development of prior
period claims during a subsequent quarter may also contribute to the volatility
in the Company's estimated workers' compensation expense.

Liquidity and capital resources

The Company's cash balance of $22.2 million, which includes cash, cash
equivalents, and restricted cash, decreased $211.6 million for the nine months
ended September 30, 2021, compared to a decrease of $85.1 million for the
comparable period of 2020. The decrease in cash at September 30, 2021 as
compared to December 31, 2020 was primarily due to purchases of investments and
restricted investments, increased trade accounts receivable and decreased
workers' compensation claims liabilities, which was due primarily to the loss
portfolio transfer agreement, partially offset by proceeds from sales and
maturities of investments and restricted investments and increased accrued
payroll, payroll taxes and related benefits.

Net cash used by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30,
2021 was $60.3 million, compared to net cash used of $78.9 million for the
comparable period of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash
used by operating activities was primarily due to increased trade accounts
receivable of $121.8 million, decreased workers' compensation claims liabilities
of $60.2 million and decreased safety incentive liabilities of $13.5 million,
partially offset by increased accrued payroll, payroll taxes and related
benefits of $100.8 million and net income of $27.5 million.

Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30,
2021 was $133.3 million, compared to net cash provided of $2.2 million for the
comparable period of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash
used in investing activities consisted primarily of purchases of investments and
restricted investments of $310.6 million and purchases of property, equipment
and software of $5.0 million, partially offset by proceeds from sales and
maturities of investments and restricted investments of $182.3 million.

Net cash used in financing activities for the nine months ended September 30,
2021 was $18.0 million, compared to net cash used of $8.4 million for the
comparable period of 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, cash
was primarily used for repurchases of common stock of $10.8 million and dividend
payments of $6.8 million, partially offset by proceeds from exercises of stock
options of $1.2 million.

The Company is required to maintain minimum collateral levels for certain
policies issued under the insured program, which is held in trust accounts (the
"trust accounts"). The balance in the trust accounts was $293.1 million and
$290.7 million at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The
trust account balances are included as a component of the current and long-term
restricted cash and investments in the Company's condensed consolidated balance
sheets.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


On June 30, 2021, the Company entered into a loss portfolio transfer agreement
to remove all remaining outstanding workers' compensation claims obligations for
client policies issued under its insured program up to June 30, 2018. This
transaction reduced the Company's outstanding workers' compensation liabilities
by $53.1 million. The payment terms of the LPT required $5.0 million to be paid
prior to June 30, 2021, with the remaining amount paid in July 2021.

The Company maintains an agreement (the "Agreement") with the Bank for a
revolving credit line of $33.0 million and a sublimit for standby letters of
credit of $8.0 million. At September 30, 2021, $6.2 million of the sublimit for
standby letters of credit was used. Advances under the revolving credit line
bear interest, as selected by the Company, of (a) the daily floating rate of
one-month LIBOR plus 1.75% or (b) the fixed rate of LIBOR plus 1.75%. The
Agreement also provides for an unused commitment fee of 0.375% per year on the
average daily unused amount of the revolving credit line, as well as a fee of
1.75% of the face amount of each letter of credit reserved under the line of
credit. The Company had no outstanding borrowings on its revolving credit line
at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The credit facility is
collateralized by the Company's accounts receivable and other rights to receive
payment.

The Agreement also provided a $63.7 million standby letter of credit (the
"Letter of Credit"). In April 2021, the Company and the insurance carrier
reached an agreement to replace the Letter of Credit with other collateral
assets and cancel the Letter of Credit in its entirety. As part of the
transaction, the Bank released the $38.7 million of collateral held in support
of the Letter of Credit, and the Company transferred the $38.7 million along
with an additional $25.0 million to the trust accounts to satisfy the collateral
requirements of the insured program.

The Agreement requires compliance with certain financial commitments as follows:

• EBITDA[profitbeforetaxplusinterestfromdebtors(netof[netincomebeforetaxesplusinterestexpense(netof[bénéficenetavantimpôtsplusintérêtsdébiteurs(netde[netincomebeforetaxesplusinterestexpense(netof

capitalized interest expense), amortization and amortization expense

          expense] on a rolling four-quarter basis must be not less than $30
          million at the end of each fiscal quarter; and


     •    the ratio of restricted and unrestricted cash and investments to
          workers' compensation and safety incentive liabilities must be at least
          1.0:1.0, measured quarterly.

The Agreement imposes certain additional restrictions unless the Bank has given its prior written consent as follows:

• it is forbidden to contract additional debts, other than the purchase

financing for the acquisition of assets, provided that the sum of

          all purchase financing does not exceed $1,000,000 at any time;


  • the Company may not terminate or cancel any of the AICE policies; and

• if an event of default arises, including on a pro forma basis, no

dividends or distributions would be allowed to be paid and redemptions

          and repurchases of the Company's stock would be permitted only up to $15
          million in any rolling 12-month period.


The Agreement also contains customary events of default and specified
cross-defaults under the Company's workers' compensation insurance
arrangements. If an event of default under the Agreement occurs and is
continuing, the Bank may declare any outstanding obligations under the Agreement
to be immediately due and payable. At September 30, 2021, the Company was in
compliance with all covenants.

The Company maintains a mortgage loan with the Bank with a balance of
approximately $3.6 million and $3.7 million at September 30, 2021 and
December 31, 2020, respectively, secured by the Company's corporate office
building in Vancouver, Washington. This loan requires payment of monthly
installments of $18,375, bearing interest at the one-month LIBOR plus 2.0%, with
the unpaid principal balance due July 1, 2022. LIBOR likely will no longer be in
general use as a reference rate by financial institutions by December 31, 2021.

Inflation

Inflation has generally not been a significant factor in the operations of the Company during the periods described above. The Company has taken into account the impact of escalating medical and other costs when establishing reserves for future workers’ compensation claims payments.
