InterQuest Group releases statement ahead of AGM
At the meeting, Gary Ashworth, Non-Executive Chairman of the Company, will make the following statement:
"The Company's strategy has been to focus on specialist disciplines in key niche markets with a concentration on leveraging the strength of our relationships with our clients. The emphasis has been to be able to service our clients' needs across multiple disciplines and to be able to cross sell our niche offerings into each and every client.
It is therefore pleasing to report that the efforts of the Company are being rewarded. Our contract business has continued the positive momentum seen towards the tail end of 2013 and the early part of 2014 whilst our permanent business has seen a good pick-up in activity over the last three months. In addition, the Ecom acquisition is proving to be a complementary addition in our offering to our clients and its integration into the business has been achieved ahead of schedule. We are therefore very pleased with the performance of the Company to date which has been above management's expectations.
We have been diligent in re-focusing the Company and creating a unified business and, with confidence building in the economic outlook, we look forward to the rest of the year with optimism"
