Some of the findings from the 12th semi-annual Group Outlook Survey from Prime Advantage, which was conducted in August, include: 47 percent of respondents expect to make new hires by the end of 2013, while less than 3 percent think that they will face layoffs; 97 percent expect their revenues for the last half of 2013 to be equal to or better than the first half of 201; capital expenditures will increase for 33 percent of companies in the last half of 2013; and, anxiety over cost pressures on raw materials have declined significantly for the last half of 2013.
