“We are pleased to report second quarter revenue and earnings above our original expectations and consistent with our recently revised financial forecast. Despite operating in a challenging macro environment that has reduced demand for executive recruitment services, our positive year-over-year and sequential revenue growth reflects the value proposition we deliver to our clients. Our business fundamentals remained strong throughout the quarter as new search assignments increased 22% year-over-year. Our initiatives to diversify our practices and invest prudently in qualified and experienced consultants are paying off as we posted sequential revenue growth in five out of our six business practices. We appreciate the dedication of our consultants and the support of our shareholders and are confident that we are well positioned to increase shareholder value as current market conditions improve,” said Brian Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer.
