The Company reported net income of $6.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the quarter. Adjusted net income for the quarter was $12.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share.

The large client change was "lapped" in November and will no longer be reported separately going forward.

Reconciliations of adjusted net income to net income, adjusted EBITDA to net income, and free cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities are included in the accompanying tables.

"We reported another good quarter of financial results. Education performance was particularly impressive, returning to target double-digit growth ahead of forecast. Overall seasonal effects were in line with historic norms and projections," commented Doug Valenti, QuinStreet CEO. "We have a lot of momentum in our two largest verticals, Education and Financial Services. Execution by our client, media and technology teams has been outstanding. Demand from clients is strong. We remain excited about the enormous size of our markets. While we are not a young company – this is our ninth consecutive year of strong revenue growth and strong, consistent profitability – we are still in the early stages of this long-term business opportunity."
