The Company expects 2015 annual revenue to range between $1.04 billion and $1.06 million, representing growth of 4% to 6% over 2014 (8% to 11% over 2014 on a constant currency basis). 2015 Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is forecasted to be between $49 million and $51 million, representing growth of 14% to 19% over 2014. 2015 Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which exclude contingent liability impacts, are expected to be $0.25 to $0.27, representing growth of 25% to 35% over 2014.

We are proud of the many new Fortune 500 clients that have adopted our solution, and we are very excited about the opportunity ahead."
