Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Results

Student Lending revenues represented 65% of total revenues and grew 24.7% during the second quarter to $45.0 million from $36.1 in the prior year period. Student Loan Placement Volume (defined below) during the quarter totaled $1.3 billion, a decrease of 2.6% compared to the prior year period.

Healthcare revenues increased 33.2% during the second quarter to $18.0 million from $13.5 million in the prior year period. The second quarter benefitted from the delays in revenue production during the first quarter as a result of the curtailment of some healthcare audit and claim activity due to Hurricane Sandy, a temporary interruption in claim processing by our client. In addition, automated processing of claims involving PIP providers began late in the quarter and contributed approximately $3 million to revenues. Our Net Claim Recovery Volume (defined below) during the quarter was $159.8 million, compared to $118.6 million in the prior year period.

Other revenues grew 17.7% during the second quarter to $6.2 million from $5.2 million in the prior year period.
