The total revenue for this period was reported to be USD 9.0 million, a 3.2% decrease compared to the same quarter in FY2022. Net income, meanwhile, decreased by 58.9%, amounting to USD 2.0 million.
The stock opened at $24.6 and closed at $24.4, representing a 1.6% decrease from its last closing price of 24.8. This decline in share price reflects a decrease in net income for the period when compared to the same period in the previous year. The company attributed these declines to reduced consumer spending due to the ongoing pandemic, as well as higher costs associated with expanding its workforce. HIREQUEST‘s CEO expressed optimism for the future, citing recent investments in technology and infrastructure that will improve customer service and reduce costs. The company also plans to increase its focus on digital marketing and technology-driven customer solutions in order to better compete with its rivals. Overall, HIREQUEST’s second quarter earnings were lower than expected, as the company continues to recover from the impacts of the pandemic.
However, the company’s commitment to invest in technology and improve customer service gives investors confidence that it is well-positioned to capitalize on growth opportunities in the near future. Live Quote…
