Staffing 360 Solutions Announces Initiation of Research Coverage by Murphy Analytics

Independent Research Firm Murphy Analytics Initiates Coverage With a 12-Month Price Target of $5.00

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."

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
