Management Commentary
David L. Dunkel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, 'We believe the significant strength in our financial results leading into, during and now after the pandemic continues to reinforce the wisdom of our strategic decision to focus our business on domestic technology staffing and solutions. Our Technology business demonstrated remarkable resilience in 2020 when revenues were essentially flat, and we have built tremendous momentum since shortly after the pandemic began and into the early stages of the third quarter. The momentum is evident not only in our organic 21% year-over-year Technology flex revenue growth in the second quarter, a record for the Firm, but also the 17% revenue growth since the second quarter of 2019, pre-pandemic.
There is no other market we would want to be focused in other than the domestic technology staffing and solutions market as it has, in our view, the greatest prospects for strong, sustained, and profitable revenue growth. I am incredibly excited about our strategic position. We have the right team in place to capture additional market share within what we believe will be a continued strong demand environment for our services.'
Joseph J. Liberatore, President, said, 'We continue to see momentum in our Technology business which should lead to third quarter year-over-year growth of approximately 25%, which would represent over 20% organic growth over the third quarter 2019, pre-pandemic. New assignment starts in Technology are not only reaching all-time highs, but they have been remarkably consistent and broad-based. We believe that this speaks volumes as to the primarily non-discretionary, mission critical work we are performing across our blue-chip client portfolio.
We are making nice progress transitioning our FA business to higher skilled positions, such as analytics and decision-support roles, which is evident in our key performance indicators. We have made tremendous progress advancing Kforce towards a fully integrated, technology enabled hybrid operating model. Our future work environment in this new age we are entering will be what we are referring to as 'Office Occasional' whereby our people can have the flexibility driven through trust and technology with a remote-first approach along with the opportunity to leverage collaborative physical office space for activities that are best achieved through in-person, active collaboration. I greatly appreciate the trust our clients, consultants and candidates have placed in Kforce. Our

teams continue to inspire me daily as we work together creating something beyond special for tomorrow and into the future to position Kforce as the most desirable destination for top professionals in our industry.'
David M. Kelly, Chief Financial Officer, said, 'Our business continued to generate solid operating cash flows while revenues continued to expand. We continued to return capital to our shareholders through approximately $13 million in share repurchases and almost $5 million in dividends. We ended the quarter with net cash of approximately $17 million, which we believe gives us optimal financial flexibility to continue investing in our business and return capital to our shareholders. We are pleased to announce that our Board of Directors approved a third quarter cash dividend of $0.26 per share, which will be payable on September 24, 2021, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 10, 2021. This represents the second increase to our dividend approved by our Board of Directors in 2021 and collectively is up 30% from prior year levels, which we believe speaks to our belief in the continued strength of our business going forward and our continued commitment to returning cash to shareholders.'
Third Quarter 2021 - Guidance
Looking forward to the third quarter of 2021, there will be 64 billing days, which is the same as the third quarter of 2020 and the second quarter of 2021. Current estimates for the third quarter of 2021 are:
•Revenue of $385 million to $393 million
•Earnings per share of $0.83 to $0.91

Supplemental FA Flex Information
Kforce secured large contracts to support government-sponsored COVID-19 related initiatives, which materially positively impacted our FA segment and specifically our FA Flex business. These initiatives are possibly shorter-term and likely non-recurring in nature. Given the contribution of the COVID-19 business, we are providing this supplemental information to better understand the performance of our FA Flex business.

Kforce Inc.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(In Thousands, Except Per Share Amounts)
In addition to our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Kforce may use certain non-GAAP financial measures, which we believe provide useful information to investors in evaluating our core operating performance. The following non-GAAP financial measures presented may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to amounts presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company views these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental and they are not intended to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided below.
Free Cash Flow
'Free Cash Flow', a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined by Kforce as net cash provided by operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP, less capital expenditures. Management believes this provides an additional way of viewing our liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows and is useful information to investors as it provides a measure of the amount of cash generated from the business that can be used for strategic opportunities including investing in our business, making acquisitions, repurchasing common stock or paying dividends. Free Cash Flow is limited, however, because it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Therefore, we believe it is important to view Free Cash Flow as a complement to (but not a replacement of) our Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

Net cash provided by operating activities $ 36,574 $ 38,966

Equity method investment (4,500) (2,500)
Net proceeds from the sale of assets 23,742 -
Other (201) 2,915
Change in cash and cash equivalents $ 13,793 $ 32,540

Adjusted EBITDA
'Adjusted EBITDA', a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined by Kforce as net income before income from discontinued operations, net of tax, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense, net, income tax expense and loss from equity method investment. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing our past and future financial performance, and this presentation should not be construed as an inference by us that our future results will be unaffected by those items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by management to assess our operations including our ability to generate cash flows and our ability to repay our debt obligations and management believes it provides a good metric of our core profitability in comparing our performance to our competitors, as well as our performance over different time periods. Consequently, management believes it is useful information to investors. The measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows or other financial statement information presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or

liquidity. The measure is not determined in accordance with GAAP and is thus susceptible to varying calculations. Also, Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
In addition, although we excluded amortization of stock-based compensation expense because it is a non-cash expense, we expect to continue to incur stock-based compensation in the future and the associated stock issued may result in an increase in our outstanding shares of stock, which may result in the dilution of our shareholder ownership interest. We suggest that you evaluate these items and the potential risks of excluding such items when analyzing our financial position.
