We generated modest revenue growth and solid operating cash flow and ended the quarter with a very strong liquidity position. Our team demonstrated sound financial discipline with higher bill rates and higher bill/pay spreads in our staffing businesses. As well, we initiated a restructuring program to reduce operating costs. Demand for services within our industry continues to be stable and we remain committed to our strategy of driving revenue growth from our targeted customer segments and increasing Adjusted EBITDA margins.”
