Revenue, contract value, Normalized EBITDA and EPS were again consistent with our long-term expectations. The increases in our revenue and contract value, as well as the expansion of key operating metrics such as client retention, illustrate both the strong value we provide our clients and the sizeable market opportunity for our services. As we look ahead to the second half of 2012, we remain excited about the opportunity we see in the market and expect to deliver another year of double-digit growth in our key business metrics.”
