Flood said that revenues were also given a boost because they "divested PeopleServe after concluding that it was no longer strategic to our growth plans and we completed the acquisition of Clement May Ltd in the UK, which provides another service offering by entering into the RPO (recruitment process outsourcing) market. We’re already seeing the benefits of this in discussions with our existing clients.”
The company reported a net loss of US$1.8mln, compared with a net loss of US$400,000 in the same period last year. This was driven by higher acquisition, capital raising and non-cash expenses, Staffing 360 noted in its earnings release.
Staffing 360 is a company in the staffing sector engaged in the execution of an international buy-and-build strategy through the acquisition of domestic and international staffing organizations in the US and UK. The company is based in New York.
