Brendan Flood, Chairman, CEO and President, said, “Our paradigm changing service delivery approach continues to make advances in very challenging markets, with our year-over-year revenue growth well into double digits with strong gross profit for the year.

“It is important to note that the impairment charge, while disappointing, is a non-cash charge and is a reflection of the current condition of the micro-cap stock market and is not related to the performance of any individual part of the company.

“Following our acquisition of Headway Workforce Solutions, we have continued to execute our stated strategy, and believe that Headway’s unique service delivery model complements, and enhances, our overall business model. The integration of Headway into the Staffing 360 Solutions’ businesses has successfully increased the combined profitability by $2M as of year-end and we expect continued improvements to profitability in 2023.

“Our buy-integrate-build strategy is beginning to pay dividends, and we anticipate continued revenue growth and margin improvements as we move towards our long-term goals. As with all staffing companies we continue to monitor the marketplace and our client needs for any recessionary impacts, or other macro-economic issues, and will take any necessary actions to mitigate its impact.” concluded Mr. Flood.
