US financial services company CBIZ reported revenue of $210m for
the three months to 31 March, down 3 percent from $217m in the
first quarter of 2009.

Revenue from new acquisitions contributed 3% to revenue growth
in the first quarter compared with the same period a year

Same-unit revenue declined by 6%. 

CBIZ chairman and chief executive Steven Gerard said CBIZ’s
typical mid-sized business clients are not yet experiencing a
strong recovery, which presents challenges for the company’s
revenue growth.

CBIZ invested about $26m of funds for acquisitions and
acquisition-related earn-out payments in the first quarter.

 “We completed two acquisitions in the first quarter and
are continuing to assess a number of potential acquisition
opportunities for the balance of 2010,” Gerard said.

CBIZ is a member of Kreston International.
