The foregoing financial highlights and summary of Kofax's revenue and adjusted EBITDA include Altosoft's results since March 1, 2013.

Commenting on these results, Reynolds C. Bish, Chief Executive Officer, said: "We had a very productive third quarter from an operational perspective, and were pleased with the progress made in strengthening our sales organization across all geographies and product lines as well as the number of new product offerings launched into the faster growing segments of our target markets. We were also pleased with our financial results as software license revenue and total revenues were higher than they've been in the third quarter of the last two fiscal years. We returned to reporting year over year growth in all revenue categories except professional services, which - as expected - were impacted by the mix of our software license revenue and relatively more indirect than direct sales, with our channel partners often providing these services. Our adjusted EBITDA, adjusted cash generated from operations and quarter end cash were all as we would have expected given our second and third quarter financial results and the acquisition of Altosoft."

Bish continued: "Despite our strong third quarter results we remain aware of the unsettled global macroeconomic conditions and recessionary environments in many Western European countries. As a result, we are reaffirming our guidance for all of fiscal year 2013 for no to low single digit growth in total revenue on a constant currency basis and an adjusted EBITDA of approximately 10% less than that reported in fiscal year 2012."

Bish and Chief Financial Officer Jamie Arnold will review the results and conduct a question and answer session via teleconference on May 1 at 8:00 am UK time / 3:00 am Eastern Time in the U.S. A telephonic replay of the teleconference will be available by 1:00 pm UK time on May 1.
