Korn Ferry Q3 Profit Tops View - Quick Facts

Korn Ferry (KFY) reported a third-quarter net income attributable to the company of $51.32 million or $0.94 per share up from $19.99 million or $0.36 per share in the previous year. The year-over-year improvement in profitability was due to the cost saving actions the company took in response to the impact of COVID-19 as well as the fact that the company recorded $18 million in restructuring charges in the prior year in connection with the acquisitions of Miller Heiman Group, Achieve Forum and Strategy Execution. The positive factors were partially offset by the decline in revenues.
