" (5/9/2018)
- 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We expect share gains in 2018 as solid growth in the financial services, technology and retail verticals more than offset continued weakness in communications. The weakness in communications is due to several factors, including a maturing end market, greater use of mobile self‐help apps and less pricing changes to mobile plans. Further, the differentiation and value provided by Clearlink (CL) should help Sykes add new brands. Importantly, Sykes can cross‐sell its contact center services to (new and existing) CL clients."
