We are particularly encouraged by the ongoing improvement in our bill payment business,” said Pamela H. Patsley, chairman and chief executive officer. “Our revenue growth and disciplined expense management is yielding margin expansion, and we continue to generate strong free cash flow. We are focused on value-creating initiatives and are excited about the prospects for our future.”
