“While this quarter for us was about making further operational improvements, we are now better positioned than ever to meet the changing demands of our clients," Dealy said.
"The comprehensive internal reorganization we initiated in the first quarter has allowed us to realize better margins on improved business coming in from our IT offering. Furthermore, with our recently completed private placement financing, we will move ahead with our acquisition mandate to create additional value for our stakeholders, clients, and future partners."
The company posted an adjusted net loss of $215,136, an improvement over the adjusted net loss of $897,378, or 0.03 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, while its gross margin came in at 21.1%.
HIRE said it is “well-positioned” to deal with the pandemic and meet the needs of its partners in the next and subsequent quarters, when it plans to continue to ink new acquisitions, investments and partnerships and organically grow its IT and Accounting divisions.
