Hudson Global reports strong across all three regions

Hudson Global CEO Jeff Eberwein said:

Our business exhibited very strong growth in revenue, adjusted net revenue, and adjusted EBITDA across all three regions in the third quarter of 2021 versus the prior year quarter.

The company’s Asia Pacific revenue was $32.3 million, increasing 58% YoY, while adjusted net revenue was up 54%  to $7.9 million. Hudson Global had an EBITDA of $1.8 million for the Asia Pacific region and an adjusted EBITDA of $2.2 million.

In the Americas, revenue was up 280% to $7.4 million, with adjusted net revenue increasing 315% to $7 million during the quarter. The impressive top-line growth was a result of strong organic growth and Coit Group acquisition in Q4 2020. European revenue in Q3 was up 39% to $5.3 million, with adjusted net revenue increased 22% to $3.1 million. Eberwein said:

I continue to be particularly encouraged by the success and collaboration of our sales teams globally as our new business pipeline remains robust and growing. Coit Group, our 2020 acquisition, has significantly outperformed our expectations this year and we are very excited to see what Karani, our new 2021 acquisition, will be able to do as part of Hudson RPO.
