Brendan Flood, Chairman, CEO and President, said, “Our focus to support growth strategies is yielding early tangible results as evidenced by improved revenue and gross profit with reduced loss from operations in both reporting periods.

“In May we completed the acquisition of Headway Workforce Solutions and to date we have identified and are executing on $1.8 million of wide-ranging integrations savings. We believe the Headway acquisition is a game changer for us on several important levels and look forward to reporting its full quarter’s contribution in our improved Q3 results.

“In Q2, the Headway contribution reflected only six weeks of operations - and the material impact of the movement in the exchange rate between the US Dollar and the Pound Sterling adversely impacted the translation of the results of our UK business into the group consolidation.”

Flood continued, “The outlook in our brands and our verticals continues to remain strong and we see a healthy, steadily improving demand for business, with increasing cross-selling opportunities and success.”
