Management Commentary

"Our pipeline remains robust, but many planned launches of new projects were delayed by customers who cited uncertainty of budgets and general economic concerns," said Shirley Singleton, Edgewater's chairman, president and CEO. "We secured first-time engagements with 16 new customers during the fourth quarter of 2012, however, we typically see between 25 to 30 new customers per quarter. This statistic illustrates the 'failure to launch' mentality that was a factor in the latter stages of 2012. The strength of the first half of 2012 was enough to offset the softness in the latter half of the year, resulting in 5% organic service revenue growth for the year. The majority of the business in the fourth quarter pipeline remains active, and I am pleased to see several projects have now closed in the first quarter of 2013.
