TNS, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

TNS, Inc. (NYSE: TNS), a leading provider of business-critical, cost-effective data communications services for transaction-oriented applications, today reported its first quarter 2012 results.

Henry H. Graham, Jr., CEO, commented, “First quarter 2012 revenue and adjusted earnings achieved the mid-point of our outlook range, reflecting strong traction from investments in growth and continued consistent execution. Revenue from our four key growth areas, specifically our TNSPay services suite, mobile applications, roaming and clearing services, and TNSVerify, increased 46% from the year-ago quarter to 14% of revenue. Revenue from core services, including network services, caller name services, and payment processing, increased slightly and contributed to our strong cash flow. With this solid start to the year, we remain focused on the evolution of our business, leveraging our investments to achieve additional measurable returns.”
