NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: STAF), a public company executing a global consolidation strategy through the acquisition of domestic and international staffing organizations with operations in the US and Europe, today announced the release of an in-depth initiation report by Patrick Murphy, CFA, principal of fee-based independent research firm Murphy Analytics.
In his report, Mr. Murphy discusses Staffing 360 Solutions, its global consolidation strategy in the highly fragmented staffing industry, and initiates fee-based coverage with a 12-month price target of $5.00 per share.
"Staffing 360 Solutions is addressing the increasing demand for temporary staffing services in the United States and around the world," said Alfonso J. Cervantes, Vice Chairman and President of Staffing 360 Solutions. "While this report is fee-based, we believe it accurately reflects and quantifies our company's progress to date, including our highly targeted acquisition strategy, which has allowed us to grow from negligible revenues to over $120 million in revenues on an annualized basis. We are continuing to pursue opportunities in the $400 billion global staffing market, and believe that our buy-and-build strategy is ideally suited for this fragmented industry."
From the report, Mr. Murphy states, "The Company believes the staffing industry offers opportunities to create a successful public company with a longer term objective of accretive acquisitions that will drive annual revenues to $300 million."
The report details the sizable growth opportunities within the higher margin professional staffing sectors that are of particular interest to Staffing 360 Solutions, such as the finance and accounting, administrative, engineering, IT and cybersecurity industries. Not only do these industries produce average margins in the 15 to 30% range, they are also highly fragmented, with over 15,000 staffing companies with under $20 million in revenues in the United States alone. According to the report, outside of the top 10 staffing firms globally, no other company has greater than 1% market share.
Mr. Murphy goes on to say, "Staffing 360 Solutions has assembled a first-class management team to execute a proven acquisition strategy in a highly fragmented, large, and growing market opportunity. Not only have other publicly traded companies proven that this model works, but STAF executives have executed the strategy previously and are now proving it with STAF, which has grown from concept to over $100 million in annualized revenue in just a few quarters."
The complete report is available in Acrobat format, free of charge:

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
