Joe Hughes, CEO, stated, "Our revenue increase of 7.9% for the fourth quarter was the first sign of improved growth resulting from the efforts of our new hires in sales and recruiting. The increase in revenue resulted primarily from the average number of consultants on billing with customers increasing from 266 in the quarter ended May 31, 2012 to 301 in the quarter ended May 31, 2013. This increase was somewhat muted by a reduction in billing rates which resulted from a shift in the business mix. A higher percentage of new placements have been with customers where there is stronger competition due to managed services programs. The increase in net loss for the fiscal year was primarily attributable to an increase of selling, general and administrative expenses. These increased expenses are associated with hiring and training recent college graduates to become technical recruiters and the increase in expenses associated with the hiring of new sales professionals. Profitability will continue to be affected until such time as these new sales and recruiting hires contribute to a sufficient increase in revenue."
