“We made significant progress during the period on several fronts, including increased activity and revenue growth across our consumer, business, university and government memberships, as well as the introduction of our Facebook app which builds on our technology leadership and provides an additional access point for our members. Following the quarter end, we completed the integration of the acquired Streetcar operations in the U.K., and we now look forward to further international expansion,” said Chairman and CEO Scott Griffith.
