“In the face of market conditions that have remained suboptimal, we grew organic revenue, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow during the second quarter of 2013,” stated Mason Slaine, Interactive Data’s chairman, president and chief executive officer in the press briefing. “Our organic revenue growth in the second quarter of 2013 reflects continued strength in our Pricing and Reference Data segment. We produced strong adjusted EBITDA margins and free cash flow as we balanced prudent expense management with investments to drive product innovation and reengineer our technical infrastructure. In particular, our investment in key product development programs across our business has enabled us to bring a number of enhanced offerings to the marketplace over the past several months, and we are pleased with the response from customers and prospects thus far.”
