Hampton Financial loses $563,000 in Q1

2024-01-29 19:07 ET - News Release

Mr. Peter Deeb reports


Hampton Financial Corp. has released its financial results for the first quarter ended Nov. 30, 2023.

Highlights for the first quarter ended Nov. 30, 2023:

  • Q1 revenues of $1,744,000, a decrease of 17 per cent year over year;
  • Q1 net losses of $563,000 or two cents per share;
  • Q1 EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of negative $249,000, versus negative $243,000 in the comparative quarter last year.

Summary of corporate developments:

The company's first quarter results reflect the challenging environment across the capital markets industry. Rising interest rates and global uncertainty delayed many financings and broader financial decisions on the part of issuers. While 2024 is showing some signs of improvement, the year ahead for the company's core business remains unclear. That said, Hampton Financial intends to move ahead with a number of initiatives to further expand its business portfolio, while growing its existing wealth management and capital markets businesses. In furtherance of this, the company is pleased to advise that negotiations are continuing as it seeks to agree to terms and then to close its previously announced potential acquisition of Oxygen Working Capital Corp.

"The first quarter results continue to demonstrate the industry-wide challenges faced during the fall of 2023. Capital markets activities have started to improve as interest rates have stabilized, so we are hopeful for a stronger second half of the year. We remain optimistic for the balance of the fiscal year," said Hampton executive chairman and chief executive officer Peter Deeb.
