its Annual Report on Form 10-K within fifteen calendar days following the
prescribed due date of December 31, 2012 as noted in our NT 10-K filing on
December 31, 2012. The audit of the financial statements is in process
however as previously announced on November 30, 2012, the Company dismissed
BDO USA, LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm and engaged
Friedman LLP as the Company's new independent registered public accounting

would not consent to referencing its audit report of the Company's prior year
financial statements. The Company expects to file its Annual Report on Form
10-K on or before March 1, 2013. No assurances, however, can be given that
this date will be met.

Mr. Schroering continued, "We had several non-cash items which negatively
impacted results by approximately $500,000 in the three months ended September
30, 2012. These items relate to an intangible asset impairment charge in our
Agricultural division as we lost a major customer in early 2012 and the
acceleration of stock based compensation upon a change in control announced in
September 2012. While we continue to deliver revenue growth, the execution in
achieving that growth needs to improve. We need to integrate prior year
acquisitions fully into General Employment's operations. We expect to realize
some consolidation benefits and start leveraging our respective client bases
by cross selling complimentary service offerings. I'm excited about my
appointment to the board of directors and look forward to working with the
entire organization in taking the business to the next level."

"For our quarter ended December 31, 2012, we saw continued strong revenue
growth with the better management of expenses. We anticipate reporting 25%
growth in revenue while posting a modest operating profit in the quarter."

"We have spoken with Wells Fargo and secured a one year extension on our
credit facility," added Mr. Schroering. "We continue to work diligently on
the year end audit and will file our Annual Report on Form 10-K as soon as
practical."
