Brendan Flood, Chairman, CEO and President said, “We have emerged stronger and more resilient from a challenging 2021 and now stand ready to capitalize on the opportunities before us. 2021 was consolidation year spent strengthening the balance sheet in the midst of on-going pandemic restrictions, particularly in the UK. We had EBITDA of $14.8 million, due in large part to obtaining full forgiveness of $19.6 million in PPP loans. We continued to pay down debt, going from a balance of $71.2 million in June 2020 to $9.0 million at the end of the 2021 fiscal year. Our gross profit for the year was $33.9 million, with an increasing share coming from permanent placements. Although we continued to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, a growing number of geographies in which we operate are returning to business as usual.

“We have re-signed agreements with many of our major clients, and we have expanded our services to them in new geographies. Our teams continue to fill challenging roles in a tight labor market, which is evidenced by improvements in headcounts in both the US and the UK,” continued Flood.

“We are continuing our focus on increasing gross profit and gross margin, which is part of our ongoing trend towards a higher margin business model. We have also invested considerable effort towards the strengthening of our balance sheet. I look forward to discussing this in our upcoming conference call…along with the burgeoning opportunities before us since our acquisition in May of Headway Workforce Solutions. We believe that this is a 1 + 1 = 3 equation. The ongoing integration is proceeding smoothly and has already begun to yield results,” Flood concluded.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. Other companies may have different definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and as a result they may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated in a manner consistent with that shown in the table at the end of this press release and should not be considered alternatives to measurements required by U.S. GAAP, such as net revenue, operating profit or net income, and should not be considered a measure of the Company’s liquidity.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, among several other metrics, to assess and analyze its operational results and trends. The Company also believes these measures are useful to investors because they are common operating performance metrics as well as metrics routinely used to assess potential enterprise value.
