  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "GP Strategies Corporation, whose operating subsidiary is General Physics Corporation, is a NYSE listed company. General Physics is a global provider of training and e-Learning solutions, management consulting, and engineering services, improving the effectiveness of organizations by customizing solutions that enhance an organization's people, processes or technology. " (7/5/2018)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are optimistic about the recent changes in management and corporate structure. With the global offices in place, the company plans to execute on domestic and global initiatives within the automotive, financial services, pharmaceutical and professional & technical sectors, in deliverables such as administrative outsourcing, content development, SuccessFactors implementation/cross‐selling, and leadership training. Given its improving organic growth prospects, a resumption of tuck‐in acquisition activity (GPX is targeting acquisitions with combined annual revenues of $40‐50 million in 2018, up from less than $30 million in 2017) and an expanded share repurchase program (recently increased by $10 million), we are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating and our 12‐month price target of $30." (5/1/2018)
  • 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "We remain comfortable with our estimates for revenues, adjusted EBITDA and EPS, all of which are approximately in line with Street expectations. Our projections assume Y/Y growth across all segments save for Sandy, which faces a difficult compare for both training and publication revenues. In Learning Solutions (LS), we model mid-single digit Y/Y growth driven by the initial ramp of key wins in Europe with a large pharmaceutical customer and more recently, ABB. We anticipate a return to positive growth in Professional & Technical Services (PTS) on increasing contribution from oil and gas customers." (10/31/2017)
