Commenting on results, Chief Executive Officer Todd Wille said, “Our third quarter and nine months ended eDiscovery revenue decreased primarily as a result of fewer new project wins from three of our larger customers. While we made significant investments on the sales, marketing and product fronts this year, we were unable to fully offset the revenue gap associated with the reduction of business from these customers. Our database, archive and migration segment had a strong quarter increasing its revenue by 17 percent. This segment continued to perform well during the quarter including a significant product win, new migration and archive consulting project wins and strong maintenance renewals, reflecting a satisfied customer base. Additionally, we achieved net income and solid cash flow for the quarter.”
