NORWALK, Conn., June 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FactSet Research Systems Inc. (NYSE:FDS) (Nasdaq:FDS), a leading provider of integrated financial information and analytical applications to the global investment community, today announced its results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

(Condensed and Unaudited)   Three Months Ended May 31,

"We again delivered double-digit diluted EPS growth and our free cash flow reached an all-time high of $92 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Off-market conditions, especially on the sell-side, continue to interrupt client buying patterns and limited our ASV growth this quarter as expected," said Philip A. Hadley, Chairman and CEO. "We continue to return capital to shareholders as evidenced by a 13% increase in our dividend and a $200 million expansion to our share repurchase program during the quarter."
