Chase CEO Brian Colas announced on Friday that the company would miss earnings and earnings growth targets for the fourth quarter, but did not offer a specific explanation for the missed targets.
The announcement came just hours after Colas said the company’s earnings miss and the recent earnings slowdown were not a result of any company-wide weakness, but rather, the result of a combination of factors including a number of factors that we are not going to be able to control, Colas wrote in a blog post.
While the statement did not provide any concrete evidence, it does offer some insight into the ongoing management discussion surrounding Chase’s performance.
Cases have risen nearly 40% since the company first reported earnings in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2019, but that was before Colas’ statement was issued.
In the fourth period of that same year, the company was up 48% in total compensation, and earnings rose 26%.
While the company reported a revenue increase of 5% for the third quarter, that figure is up from just 1% in the third period of 2019.
That increase came despite the loss of roughly half a million customers, and the company also experienced a $2.9 billion restructuring in November.CASEPAY has a variety of incentive programs that incentivize its employees to make high-quality financial decisions.
