In addition, Navigant noted on its Q4/18 conference call that it is seeing improved demand momentum for its healthcare consulting services at the outset of 2019, as indicated by several recent new contract awards. Advisory & Compliance (FSAC) segment (20% of Q1 estimated RBR), we are projecting a mid-single-digit RBR decline due to a difficult year-ago comparison and the expectation that issues which impacted the FSAC consulting business in Q4/18 (e.g. client pauses, project start-up delays and lower project conversion rates) will continue to affect Q1/19." (4/18/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Navigant's healthcare segment has grown through acquisitions and recruitment of senior hires. Its Energy segment has expanded through investments in hiring, solution development and acquisitions. It continues to invest in technology infrastructure to augment its technology-based service offerings to meet the changing client demands. Navigant continues to reward its shareholders with share repurchases and dividend payments. Shares of Navigant have outperformed its industry in the past year. On the flip side, the company is experiences weak performance in its healthcare segment.
