Quoting Management: “The macro-environment has been challenging recently for our businesses, but we have valuable, scalable businesses and we are keenly focused on improving our execution both on the revenue and expense sides,” said Elisabeth DeMarse, the Company’s Chief Executive Offer and President. “In my first few weeks at TheStreet, we diligently have taken several measures to bring our cost structure in line with current revenue levels, such as pivoting more towards a contributor/freelance model with a select few full time editorial staff, a strategy I have successfully implemented previously. We will continue to focus on implementing other initiatives to grow and improve the Company’s operations and create value. I couldn’t be more excited about the core assets we have to work with as I focus my energy on maximizing the monetization of these assets,” concluded DeMarse.

Key Stats:

Revenue has dropped in the past two quarters. In the fourth quarter of the last fiscal year, revenue declined 2.8% to $14.3 million from the year-earlier quarter.
