“The third quarter was a transformational period in the history of Staffing 360 Solutions,” stated Brendan Flood, Executive Chairman of Staffing 360 Solutions. “We completed two acquisitions bringing our annualized revenues to $265 million and materially refinanced our balance sheet, improving our working capital position and ability to generate positive operating cash flow. More importantly, our trailing twelve months’ pro-forma Adjusted EBITDA is now $11 million, up from $5.4 million in the comparable trailing twelve months of 2016.”
Mr. Flood continued, “Looking forward, we are now positioned to see further growth as we utilize operating cash flow for investment in people and services in 2018 and beyond.”
