Management Commentary

"During the fourth quarter of 2013, our profitability was in part fueled by an improvement in billable consultant utilization and software sales," said Shirley Singleton, Edgewater's chairman, president and CEO. "We continued to experience organic revenue growth while keeping our expenses in-line and generated leverage by combining our consulting services with the development and monetization of intellectual property. Further, we were encouraged by the robust sales activity and closings we experienced across each of our service offering channels during the quarter.
