Expands in India Market

Identifies Numerous Synergies

OLD GREENWICH, Conn., Aug. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hudson Global, Inc. (the “Company” or “Hudson RPO”) (Nasdaq: HSON), a leading global total talent solutions company, announced today the acquisition of Hunt & Badge Consulting Private Limited (“Hunt & Badge” or “H&B”), an India-headquartered provider of recruitment services to customers operating in India.

“We are very excited to welcome the Hunt & Badge team to Hudson RPO and believe this accretive combination will generate considerable value for our clients, team, and stockholders,” said Jeff Eberwein, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “The addition of H&B expands Hudson RPO’s footprint further into the India recruitment market with an impressive array of deep client relationships with notable multinational companies. H&B’s highly dedicated and experienced delivery team makes it a natural fit for Hudson RPO. We have identified many potential synergies between the two companies – particularly with last year’s Karani acquisition, whose size, breadth, and growing database of candidates in the Indian market complements H&B’s recruitment expertise and local market knowledge, creating a well-rounded India-focused enterprise with the ability to leverage the global market leadership and reputation of Hudson RPO.”

Mr. Eberwein continued, “Today’s announcement represents the continuation of our disciplined approach to pursuing accretive bolt-on acquisitions to strategically expand Hudson RPO’s capabilities and capacity.”
