CHICAGO, July 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heidrick & Struggles International, Inc. (Nasdaq:HSII), the premier professional services firm focused on serving the leadership needs of top organizations globally, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
Consolidated net revenue was $122.0 million in the second quarter, up 5.1 percent or $6.0 million from $116.1 million in the 2012 second quarter. Year over year, net revenue increased 11.4 percent in the Americas and increased 6.5 percent in Asia Pacific (approximately 9 percent on a constant currency basis), but declined 11.1 percent in Europe (approximately 13 percent on a constant currency basis). Growth in the Financial Services and Global Technology & Services Executive Search practices was partially offset by declines in the Education & Social Enterprise and Industrial practices. Net revenue from Leadership Consulting was $9.1 million, a decline of 5.9 percent from the 2012 second quarter, and revenue from Senn Delaney, the culture-shaping firm acquired on December 31, 2012, was $5.4 million.
"Improving conditions for Executive Search in the Americas and in Asia Pacific had a positive impact on our second quarter results while Europe remains in a challenging economic environment," said Jory Marino, Interim Chief Executive Officer. "Our year-over-year revenue comparisons also reflect the value that Senn Delaney brings to Heidrick & Struggles and reinforce the need to continue to broaden our leadership talent capabilities. We are especially pleased with a 19 percent sequential increase in revenue compared to the 2013 first quarter that was driven by growth in all regions, including the majority of our Executive Search practices and Leadership Consulting. The year-over-year and sequential revenue growth is particularly encouraging considering the smaller consultant base. Recruitment of senior-level consultants with established client relationships, retaining high performing consultants, and managing underperforming consultants will remain a key area of emphasis."
