"The third quarter of fiscal 2017 showed strong additional sales from our base accounts in healthcare along with two new contracts added by our complex distribution team," said Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS Inc. "This momentum drove an 11% increase in revenue, which our continued discipline on operating expenses allowed us to leverage into earnings growth and a 45% increase in EBITDA. While we continue to see some effect from the uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Care Act, we are pleased with the continuing investment from our hospital customers as they expand their utilization of our product suite. We were also successful in winning another government sector project, this time in the UK."
"We have seen the same positive trends when we look at our progress on a trailing twelve month basis, with a 15% increase in revenue and a 76% increase in EBITDA," added Berty Ho-Wo-Cheong, VP Finance & Administration and CFO. "We expect further positive results as we continue to penetrate our base accounts and deliver operating leverage."
