Hampton Financial loses $751,000 in Q2 2024

2024-04-29 17:26 ET - News Release

Mr. Peter Deeb reports


Hampton Financial Corp. has released its financial results for the second quarter ended Feb. 29, 2024.

Second quarter fiscal highlights:

Second quarter ended Feb. 29, 2024.

  • Q2 revenues of $1,864,000; a decrease of 25 per cent year over year;
  • Q2 net losses of $(751,000) or (two cents) per share; an improvement of 17 per cent year over year;
  • Q2 EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of $(441,000) versus $(437,000) in the comparative quarter last year.

Summary of corporate developments

The company's second quarter results reflect the challenging environment across the financial services industry amidst rising interest rates and global uncertainty which continues to delay many financings and broader financial decisions on the part of issuers. While 2024 is showing some signs of improvement, the year ahead for Hampton's core business remains unclear.

"The second quarter results continue to demonstrate the industry-wide slowdown that has extended in to the first half of calendar 2024. 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.

"On a positive note, we were pleased to announce that subsequent to the end of our second quarter we have completed the acquisition of Oxygen Working Capital Corp. The integration of this new commercial lending unit into the broader Hampton group is complete and we look forward to a positive contribution to financial results moving forward. We also see this as an excellent opportunity to enhance our capital markets offerings with an additional funding offering for early and mid-stage companies," said Hampton Executive chairman and chief executive officer Peter Deeb.
