"We had a fantastic quarter; The strong year to date growth in revenue and earnings reflect the successful integration of acquired entities, execution on margin expansion opportunities, stringent cost control and strong FX tailwinds," said Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman and CEO of TIO Networks. "Our businesses are performing well providing us with a consistent and solid base of earnings.  Management's near term focus is to ensure a smooth transition of the Softgate systems acquisition into our shared services infrastructure program and make sure that we benefit from the key synergies provided for by the transaction.  Our overarching longer-term focus is to continue to organically and inorganically build a cohesive and strong competitor in the consumer bill payment and receivables management marketplace for bill issuers of all sizes and needs."

A conference call to discuss the results will be held today at 2:00pm EST, 11am PST.
