"In a challenging business climate, we are gratified to have increased revenues by 2% year over year," said John N. Wallace, chief executive officer. "Given the on-going economic uncertainty - particularly in the United States - clients continue to be cautious relative to human capital investments."

Wallace continued: "We remain confident regarding the long-term prospects for executive search in North America. To that end, we are focused on improving our overall market presence and competiveness, and will continue to invest in the growth of our firm. We will make targeted, strategic additions to our partner team to add to the depth and breadth of our sector and functional experience."

The Board of Directors today also declared the payment of a quarterly dividend of 1.5 cents per Common Share payable on March 15, 2013 to shareholders of record on January 22, 2013.

Financial Overview (all numbers expressed in $000s)

  • Operating revenue:
    • Fiscal 2013 first quarter operating revenue increased by 2% over the comparable period last year to 7,417.
    • US revenues represent 60% or $4,467 of the first quarter total, decreasing 13% from $5,126 in the comparable period of 2012.
    • Revenues from Canadian operations increased 38% to $2,950 in the current period from $2,144 in the comparable period of 2012.
    • Although up slightly over the comparable period last year, 2013 first quarter revenues declined 16% or $1,439 sequentially over 2012 fourth quarter revenues. Historically, first quarter revenues are soft particularly in comparison to third and fourth quarter levels.
  • Operating loss:
    • Higher first quarter revenues and improved direct operating margins as compared to the comparable period of fiscal 2012, resulted in a reduced operating loss of $52 (2012: loss of $401) for the quarter.
  • Net loss:
    • The first quarter net loss after tax was $56 in fiscal 2013 as compared to a loss of $444 in the comparable period a year earlier.

Over the past three years, The Caldwell Partners has transformed from a respected, strictly Canadian brand to a firm with a strong North American presence. At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the firm now has 23 of its total 34 partners located in six American offices, and has established strategic alliances with executive search firms based in London and Hong Kong.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
