"We continue to make good progress on initiatives that we believe will return us to growth. Our business model has remained resilient and attractive, with good adjusted EBITDA and cash flow margins, and a strengthening balance sheet. In fiscal year 2013, we went from net debt of $2 million to net cash of over $35 million. For the September quarter, we expect the improving top line trend to continue and estimate revenue in the range of $74 to $79 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to be approximately 12% as we choose to more aggressively spend on media as an investment in growing our expanded auto insurance model.

We continue to be well positioned given our strong capabilities, assets and resources," concluded Valenti.
