We took early and on-going steps to right-size our cost base with overhead savings that allowed us to manage against the worst impact of the pandemic. After a particularly painful economic period across March to July, we have continued to grow our temporary contractor numbers month-over-month and our permanent placement business -- and we are doing it with a healthier economic model for our future. “Our sequential improvements in performance across the second half of the year are positive signs that the markets in both the US and the UK are improving and recovering,” continued Flood. “While full year revenue, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA declined, the financial health of our Balance Sheet has improved considerably, and has improved further post year end to the point that we have reduced debt by 46.4% since June 2020, redeemed approximately $6.8 million or 52.5% of Series E Preferred Shares and eliminated approximately $8.5 million in interest and dividends. I look forward to sharing more details on our Financial Results Conference Call,” Flood concluded. Conference CallThe Participant Dial-In Number for the conference call is 323-701-0225.

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.
