How it is doing

At the beginning of May, ClearStar said it hadn't lost any customers due to the pandemic, but it noted a reduction in volumes. It also added it was too early to provide guidance for the current period.

Revenue run rate experienced a “significant uptick” from the end of May as the labour market and employers began to slowly recover from the effects of the pandemic.

The firm also launched a coronavirus testing service to support employers with their return-to-work planning and workplace safety.

The service will provide employees with a CRL Clear kit to test blood samples for coronavirus antibodies which will indicate if a person has been previously infected with the disease.


What the boss says: Barney Quinn, chairman

"ClearStar has the right solutions to support employers in quickly and securely re-establishing their workforce, which is reflected in the significant uptick in our revenue run rate from the end of May."  

"While we have not yet returned to our pre-COVID-19 revenue run rate, the increase in sales so far is extremely encouraging. As the US economic recovery progresses and our customers are able to resume more normal trading, we expect this growth in our activity to continue."
