Some of our operational businesses, such as our title insurance agency in particular, are seeing the negative impact of higher rates and reduced refinance activity. As a result, we made the difficult decision to lay off about 10% of our employees. Making these decisions is never easy, but we are committed to making our employees’ transition as smooth as possible.16 July 2022
