Mr. Chanana continued, “Based on our year-to-date performance and outlook for the final quarter, we remain confident in our ability to deliver a record year in fiscal 2014 and are raising our annual revenue and EBITDA guidance.

We look forward to finishing the year on a strong note and well positioned for fiscal 2015.”
