CEO Raina:
"The year-to-date operating cash flows through September 30th 2012 were $54.0 million indicating that we can manage our fast growth and generate cash to further strengthen the Company in future quarters. Strategically, London is arguably the second largest insurance market in the world. The Company is excited to be addressing that market now with the launch of EbixEurope and the acquisition of TriSystems in London in August. As we integrate our 2012 acquisitions and increase the sales momentum, we expect increased cross-selling and further increases in operating cash flow in the coming quarters."

SVP and CFO Robert Kerris. "Furthermore, during the quarter the Company continued to invest in the growth of the business with $9.3 million of accretive business acquisitions and $389 thousand of capital expenditures. Our balance sheet remains strong as reflected in the aggregate cash, cash equivalents, and short-term cash deposit investments in the amount of $31.0 million as of September 30, 2012, and working capital of $15.8 million.

Our accounts receivable DSO stood at 61 days as of September 30, 2012, continuing an improving trend as this reflects a reduction of 3 days from year-end 2011, and 6 days from a year earlier at September 30, 2011.

Our net debt presently stands at $52.2 million as of September 30th 2012. The Company presently has access to approximately $38.2 million of readily available cash resources from its financing facility with Citi Bank combined with cash on hand to support the continued growth of the Company, both organically and with accretive acquisitions."
