Growth in a Down Industry. For the year, the IT and business services industry has been down 6% in revenue while ISG grew its topline by 2%. We believe the growth is a testament to the Company’s focus on recurring revenues with such revenues being $125 million for the year, up 16% compared to last year, through its platforms such as ISG GovernX and ISG ProBenchmark. Recurring revenues now represent 43% of ISG’s overall revenue, up 500 basis points from the prior year.

Fourth Quarter Results. Management reported revenues of $66.2 million for the quarter, below last year’s revenue of $74.2 million and below our estimate of $69.0 million. Slower decision making from clients resulted in revenue being pushed to the right for the Company. Driven by a $4.8 million bad-debt reserve taken in 4Q23, net loss was $2.9 million, or $0.06/sh, versus net income of $4.3 million, or $0.09/sh in 4Q22. We estimated net income of $2.6 million, or $0.05/sh.
