New York, May 19, 2021 – The Fedcap Group, the parent company for a growing network of top tier nonprofit agencies, today reported its operating and financial results for the first half of fiscal year 2021. Committed to providing services that positively impact the lives of people with barriers to economic wellbeing, The Fedcap Group is structured in four areas of practice: Education, Workforce Development, Occupational Health and Economic Development and operates through 21 nonprofit subsidiaries, in the U.S., Canada and the UK.
“The Fedcap Group’s first half performance represented a strong start to fiscal 2021. Revenues increased 18% to $152.8MM, reflecting our growing platform of services and expanding geographic footprint. During the period, we continued to execute effectively on existing contracts and increase our impact by winning large, new awards, all while managing through the challenges of COVID-19. We also completed two important strategic acquisitions: Apex Technical School in September 2020 and Civic Hall Technology Hub at the end of March 2021. Both combinations significantly advance our ability to train and upskill individuals in the technology sector—creating a pathway to long term economic wellbeing.
“First half revenue growth was led by the ramp up of the large Canadian workforce development contract we were awarded last fiscal year, increased demand for our facility management and cleaning services during the pandemic and a 6-month contribution from the Apex acquisition. Also in the first half of 2021, we continued to refine our work in our five key areas of focus: Children ages 0-8, youth transitioning from foster care, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the previously incarcerated and those on public assistance.
“As we slowly turn the corner on the pandemic, The Fedcap Group remains committed to assisting people from across our footprint who are struggling to make ends meet, ensuring children have access to much needed educational and supportive services and helping individuals develop the skills to succeed in the changing workplace,” said Christine McMahon, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Revenue for the first half of FY 2021 ending March 31, 2021 was $152.8MM, an 18% increase over the similar period last year.
The Fedcap Group provides a diversified its revenue array of services to at-risk populations across four key practice areas.
For the first half of Fiscal 2021 operating expenses were $152.2MM, 88% of which represented direct program expenses. The Fedcap Group reported an operating profit of $604 thousand for the period ended March 31, 2021 compared to an operating loss of $1.4MM in the same period last year.
As of March 31st, 2021, cash and marketable securities were $33.7MM compared with $15.9MM for the same period in the prior year, inclusive of $15MM that represented federal government-funded loans as part of the Payroll Protection Plan (PPP).
In October 2020, The Fedcap Group refinanced a portion of its outstanding debt. The line of credit capacity was increased to $42.5MM from $28MM to support the organization’s future growth.
“The first half of fiscal year 2021 has been an exciting period for The Fedcap Group. Business conditions continued to improve as certain pandemic-related restrictions were eased, and we were able to achieve positive outcomes for an expanded universe of individuals in need. Additionally, we are very pleased with our acquisitions of Apex Technical School and Civic Hall, two high profile companies.
“Bringing Apex Technical School into The Fedcap Group provides tremendous opportunity to expand our efforts in creating pipelines from training to jobs. For nearly 60 years, Apex has provided educational opportunities that change lives. Each year, 1000+ individuals graduate with skills and certifications in trades with tremendous growth potential. This combination allows us to expand our ability to assist unemployed individuals develop new skills, especially in technology and compete in the changing marketplace.
“Civic Hall Technology Hub is a center for learning, collaboration, and technology for the public good. Founded in February 2015, Civic Hall has built a strong following with government, tech companies, media leaders, academic institutions, foundations, and community-based organizations that will support our training and upskilling services.
“In the first half, our Fedcap UK subsidiary successfully competed to provide support for people who have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and have been unemployed between 12-18 months. The contract, valued at over $201,600MM over 4.5 years, was awarded to us in April, and represent important recognition of the track record we have established in gaining employment for individuals across England and Scotland, as well as in the US and Canada.
“As our economies emerge from the pandemic, we expect demand for services provided by the Fedcap Group to continue to increase. I could not be prouder of The Fedcap Group leadership and staff who have worked diligently to bring our essential services to the at-risk populations we serve within a very difficult operating environment. This is an indication of the strong culture that unites us and enables us to continue to make a significant impact in the lives of people with barriers to economic wellbeing,” noted Ms. McMahon.
