The decrease was also Because of a 6% year over year decline in Dice1 revenues, resulting from a decrease in recruitment package consumers during the same period.

Operating expenses for the Company’s remaining tech-focused business reduced by $0.6M year over year, mainly driven by lower marketing expenses and a fixed asset impairment in the 2017 third quarter.
