Revenue for the fiscal 2013 third quarter increased 26% to $334.3 million, compared to revenue of $266.4 million reported for the same period last year, driven by new work and the expansion on existing contracts.

Fiscal 2013 third quarter income from continuing operations, net of taxes, totaled $28.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, and included approximately $0.01 of net legal, settlement and acquisition-related expenses. Excluding these costs, third quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 32% to $0.41 compared to $0.31 reported for the same period last year.
