  • The Company added 956 new end user seats during the first quarter, an increase of 18.5% compared to Q1 2011 and 5% compared to the prior quarter.

Conference Call
RDM will be hosting a conference call to discuss the Company's first quarter results on February 9, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. EST.  Dial-in numbers are 647-427-7450 or 1-888-231-8191.

Non-IFRS Measures
EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is provided to assist management and investors in determining the Corporation's approximate operating cash flows before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management believes that RDM shareholders and potential investors in RDM use non-IFRS financial measures such as EBITDA in making investment decisions about the Company and measuring the operational results.
