Randstad NV, the Dutch staffing company, has announced a decrease in net profit for the third quarter of this year. The company attributes this decline to worse-than-expected sales and challenging macroeconomic conditions. Despite the challenging environment, Randstad remains committed to agile and effective operations through its diverse portfolio of services and field steering model.
In the third quarter, net profit reached 168 million euros, compared to 228 million euros in the same period last year. Underlying earnings before interest, taxes, and amortization decreased by 19% to 273 million euros. Furthermore, the company reported a decline in revenue from 7.05 billion euros to 6.26 billion euros. This decrease can be partially attributed to unfavorable foreign-exchange movements. Additionally, organic revenue per working day fell by 7.3% on a yearly basis.
In the upcoming fourth quarter, Randstad expects gross margin and operating expenses to be similar to those in the third quarter. However, the company acknowledges that visibility remains limited and remains cautious in its approach. Randstad will continue to utilize scenario planning and respond quickly and effectively to market conditions.
Despite the challenges presented by the current macroeconomic landscape, Randstad NV remains dedicated to its operational adaptability and diversified service offerings. The company will navigate through these uncertain times in order to maintain its position as a leading staffing organization.
