Net revenue in the SCM segment grew 9.4% to $99.1 million from non-GAAP net revenue of $90.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 primarily due to continued growth in group purchasing-related net administrative fees as well as the recognition of certain guarantee-related revenue and performance fees. Net revenue in the RCM segment increased 21.1% to $64.3 million from $53.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 as technology-related revenue grew 14.5%, due to growth in subscription fees from multiple products, while services-related revenue increased 36.8% from growth in both new and existing clients.
