Investment Consulting Group - Our Investment Consulting Group accounts for 10 percent of our total fiscal year 2008 revenues.  This business, although relationship based, can be affected by volatility in investment returns, particularly as clients look to us for assistance in managing that volatility.

This excerpt taken from the WW 8-K filed Nov 8, 2006.
Investment Consulting Group revenues (representing 8% of total revenues for the quarter) were $27.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2007, up from $16.3 million in the prior-year first quarter.  Revenues increased 36% from prior-year, pro-forma revenues of $20.1 million.  Revenues increased during the quarter due to a strong demand for all of our services, particularly investment strategy advice.

This excerpt taken from the WW 10-K filed Sep 1, 2006.
Investment Consulting Group - Our Investment Consulting Group accounts for 6 percent of our total fiscal year 2006 revenues.  This business, although relationship based, can be impacted by volatility in investment returns, particularly as clients look to us for assistance in managing that volatility.

In the short term, our revenues are driven by many factors including the general state of the global economy and the resulting level of discretionary spending by our clients, the ability of our consultants to attract new clients or cross-sell to existing clients, and the impact of new regulations in the legal and accounting fields that most recently increased demand for our executive compensation and benefits practices.

The human resources consulting industry, although highly fragmented, is highly competitive and is comprised of major human capital consulting firms, specialist firms, consulting arms of accounting firms and information technology consulting firms.  We believe we have successfully managed costs throughout the company by leveraging our variable compensation cost structure, initiating targeted job reductions and controlling discretionary spending.  We believe we are well-positioned to take advantage of an improvement in the overall economy.

In the long term, we believe that benefits spending will continue to be the largest component of U.S. corporate spending.  We believe that the aging workforce, the projected shortfall in workers over the next decade and changing regulations will translate into opportunities for us.  We believe that the company’s financial results will depend in large part upon how well we succeed in deepening our existing client relationships through thought leadership and focus on cross-practice solutions, actively pursuing new clients in our target markets, cross selling and strategic acquisitions.  We believe that the highly- fragmented industry in which we operate represents tremendous growth opportunities for us, because we offer a unique combination of benefits and human capital consulting as well as strategic technology solutions.
