"Our investment discipline and proven business model continues to generate shareholder value as illustrated by our 10% adjusted EPS growth. Our buy-side client base is experiencing a healthy business cycle, but we are facing a challenging sell-side environment, which reduced organic ASV," says Philip Hadley, Chairman and CEO. "As we continue to generate record levels of quarterly free cash flow, I'm pleased to announce a $300 million expansion to our existing share repurchase program. We also completed the acquisition of Revere Data in September and acquired a 60% ownership interest in Matrix Data Limited in December 2013."
