Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Results

Lisa Im, Performant Financial's Chief Executive Officer said, "We delivered strong revenue growth in both Student Lending and Healthcare, despite the challenges presented by the Department of Education's system conversion and the temporary suspension of some of our healthcare audit and recovery activities as a result of Hurricane Sandy. This performance is a testament to our proprietary technology platform, our differentiated operating model and our ability to continually execute on our business plan. The Healthcare market again delivered the strongest growth and accounted for approximately 28% of the company's total revenues during the fourth quarter, relative to about 3% only two years ago in the fourth quarter of 2010. Finally, we recently announced a new strategic partnership with Magellan Healthcare and the award of a new payment recapture contract with the Department of Education. These events highlight the adaptability of our analytics and recovery services platform to new markets."
