After more than a decade of growth, largely due to acquisitions, Getty has hit a rough patch of late. The company’s shares have decreased in value more than 47 percent in the last year. In August, Getty lost 10 percent of its market value after lowering its full-year profit estimate. That same month, the company laid off 100 employees. In November, it reported a third-quarter profit of $25.7 billion million, down 31 percent from the previous year.
