Tony Wormington, President, said, "We ended fiscal 2011 with record levels of revenue, gross profit and net income.  Our company continues to prosper in a very competitive market and a consolidating industry through our constant focus on providing high quality products and services supported by superior levels of customer support. We are entering our fiscal 2012 with a strong balance sheet with low levels of debt, recurring revenue that continues to grow, an extremely focused strategy on servicing financial institutions, and a cautiously optimistic outlook for the new fiscal year.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "Results of the quarter and the year were very much in-line with our expectations both organically and including our projections for the three acquisitions we did during the previous fiscal year. Revenue and gross profit for the year were within two percent of our projections, and we were able to get slightly more leverage to the operating income line that originally projected. Our interest expense went up significantly this year due to the credit facilities put in place in June of last year, however we were able to repay approximately $230.0 million on these facilities during the year, and we currently have a healthy cash balance and our entire revolver facility available for potential acquisitions, stock buy-backs and general investment in the company."
