Recurring revenue closed sales grew 14% in the third quarter and have grown 75% year to date. Given our year to date performance, we are reaffirming our full year guidance. Further, with $108 million in record recurring revenue closed sales year to date, we expect the full year to come in at the upper half of our guidance range of $110 to $150 million, which would result in another full year record. We also anticipate Adjusted Diluted EPS to be around the mid-point of our full year guidance range of $2.42 to $2.52, representing about 10% growth.”
“We are delivering on our capital commitments including making tuck-in acquisitions and returning capital to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. In April, we completed the previously announced acquisition of the trade processing business of M&T Bank Corporation’s Wilmington Trust Retirement and Institutional Services unit and during the quarter, we acquired Direxxis, a provider of cloud-based marketing solutions and services for wealth and asset managers,” he added.
