"I am pleased with the performance and momentum we are seeing from our services," commented Noah Gottdiener, chief executive officer. "We continued to increase our revenue even in the face of a challenging market where there is minimal large-scale M&A activity and low defaults rates. As a result of the pipeline in several key areas of the business, I expect our momentum to continue into the fourth quarter," continued Mr. Gottdiener. "Furthermore, we remain poised to deliver additional growth when the M&A and restructuring markets rebound in the future."
