Recruiting firm Hays' quarterly net fee growth slows

HAS TRI

(Reuters) - Recruiting firm Hays Plc <HAYS.L> on Thursday reported a slower quarterly fee growth rate, hurt by a relatively stronger pound against other foreign currencies. First-quarter net fee growth of 9 percent was below Jefferies' estimate of 11 percent, hurt by slower momentum in Germany and rest of the world, the brokerage said. Hays reported a 3 percent growth in net fees from the UK and Ireland as the job market braces itself for Britain's planned exit from the European Union in March next year, with little clarity on how things will pan out. The company, which places people across a range of industries from finance to construction, said net fees rose 7 percent on a reported basis during the first quarter, compared with a 13 percent growth in the year-ago quarter.

Retailers and recruiters in week ahead spotlight with results from N Brown, Quiz, PageGroup and Hays

HAS RPC +4 more HAS RPC PAGE GRG BWNG SMWH

On Thursday Ted Baker PLC (LON:TED) posted weaker-than-expected first-half revenues and warned that the environment was challenging as it took a hit from the collapse of House of Fraser, where it has a number of concessions. That does not bode well for Thursday’s interims given that the company said in its June trading update that, although it had posted a 0.4% increase in the thirteen week period ended June 2 (the first quarter of the retailer’s fiscal year), the growth was entirely due to a 9% rise in financial services-related activity, rather than product sales, which fell by 2.8% year-on-year. International job markets have led growth for recruiters PageGroup and Hays as UK employers exercise more caution on hiring decision amid Brexit uncertainty. For PageGroup, which reports its third quarter results on Wednesday, the Europe, Middle East and Africa region is its star performer having accounted for 49% of gross profit in the first half. Brewing group and publican firm Marston’s plc (LON:MARS) will be hoping to capitalise on its strong performance during the summer period when it issues a trading update for the fourth quarter on Wednesday.
