Medidata (NASDAQ:MDSO), the leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for clinical research in life sciences, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2013, and provided detailed financial guidance for the full year 2014.

“Record revenues of $277 million in 2013 led to Medidata’s best year of growth since we went public in 2009. Subscription revenue growth of 33% was driven by accelerating customer adoption and market share gains,” said Tarek Sherif, Medidata's chairman and chief executive officer. “Our cloud platform is built on best-in-class technology supported by a deep understanding of clinical development, while our benchmarking and analytic capabilities are powered by the largest, unique data repository in our industry. This has made Medidata a key technology partner to the life sciences industry as we focus on optimizing value throughout the clinical development process. Given our healthy backlog, momentum and a great pipeline of opportunities, we are well positioned for another year of exciting growth.”
