This recognition continues to drive the expansion of our client relationships and our record recruiting results."

In addition to our separately announced share repurchase program, we continue to evaluate other alternatives to deploy our cash in support of our strategic initiatives and for the benefit of our shareholders," stated Nick Galassi, Chief Financial Officer of InnerWorkings. "Moreover, if you exclude the effect of stock-based compensation, the significant operating leverage improvement demonstrates our ability to invest in the business while continuing to operate more efficiently."
