The Dolan Company Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: DM

The Dolan Company (NYSE: DM), a leading provider of professional services and business information to legal, financial and real estate sectors in the United States, today announced financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

“Third quarter operating trends were mixed, as we saw record e-discovery revenue and steady performance from our business information segment, but challenging volumes in our foreclosure processing business,” said James P. Dolan, chairman, chief executive officer and president. "As we anticipated, our e-discovery business rebounded from the second quarter, with a broad base of new matters being processed from both new and existing clients. In our default processing business, we saw a continuation of suppressed referrals as political considerations weigh on the industry, and regulatory standards get implemented.”

“After the end of the quarter, we successfully amended our bank agreement, which gives us greater flexibility going forward. Furthermore, we restructured our NDeX Florida operations, which improves our profitability while maintaining the opportunity for us to expand in the Florida market,” Dolan added.

“Litigation Support Services, led by our e-discovery business, had its best quarter ever. Litigation Support revenue grew by 11%, including 13% growth in our e-discovery business. However, this revenue growth doesn’t tell the whole story, since our record e-discovery revenue this quarter compares against the previously record-setting third quarter last year. Sequentially, revenue from the e-discovery business grew by 77% from the second quarter of 2012, showing a marked improvement from the depressed levels experienced during the first half of the year. Importantly, new clients accounted for more than 25% of the quarter’s Litigation Support revenue, while some of our traditionally larger clients generated strong revenues as well. We remain optimistic about the growth potential of our e-discovery business and are encouraged that the DiscoverReady team’s hard work to expand our client base is producing such remarkable results,” Dolan said.
