Highlight of Business Operations:

Recovery Audit Services Europe/Asia-Pacific SG&A includes FX transaction gains and losses, including the gains and losses related to intercompany balances. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, Recovery Audit Services Europe/Asia-Pacific SG&A recognized $1.0 million and $1.6 million of FX transaction losses, respectively, related to intercompany balances. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, Recovery Audit Services Europe/Asia-Pacific SG&A recognized $1.4 million and $0.8 million of FX transaction gains, respectively, related to intercompany balances.

Corporate Support SG&A for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 includes stock-based compensation charges of $1.1 million and $1.0 million, respectively. The first six months of 2010 includes $1.9 million of stock-based compensation charges as compared to $1.0 million of stock-based compensation charges included in the same period in 2009.

Interest Expense. Net interest expense was $0.3 million and $0.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. Net interest expense was $2.0 million and $1.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. Interest expense in the three months ended June 30, 2010 consisted primarily of interest related to the SunTrust Bank term loan under the Companys credit facility, which had an outstanding balance of $13.5 million as of June 30, 2010. Interest expense in the six months ended June 30, 2010 included a charge of $1.4 million for unamortized deferred loan costs from the Ableco LLC term loan which were written off in January 2010 in conjunction with the Company entering into a new credit facility with SunTrust Bank (see New Credit Facility below).

Operating Activities. Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities was $(0.3 million) and $5.5 million during the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The $5.8 million decrease in cash provided by (used in) operating activities in the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same period in 2009 was due to a $9.8 million reduction in operating profit partially offset by a $1.5 million increase in the change in operating assets and liabilities from the beginning to the end of the relevant periods. Portions of the reduced operating profit were attributable to increases in noncash charges such as depreciation and amortization expense and stock-based compensation which do not impact cash generated by operating activities. The $1.5 million increase in the change in operating assets and liabilities in the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period in 2009 was the result of lower payments for compensation, severance and other accrued liabilities made during the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the first six months of 2009. Such changes are itemized in the Companys Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows included in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q.

Investing Activities and Depreciation and Amortization Expense. Depreciation and amortization expense for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 amounted to $4.3 million and $2.7 million, respectively. Net cash used for property and equipment capital expenditures was $4.0 million and $1.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. Management currently expects this increased level of capital expenditures to continue over the next several quarters as the Company continues to enhance its healthcare audit systems supporting its performance in the CMS RAC program and other healthcare audits and in preparation and execution of the Companys strategic initiatives. Capital expenditures are discretionary and changes in operating plans and results could cause management to alter its capital expenditure plans.

Financing Activities and Interest Expense. Net cash used in financing activities was $1.6 million and $2.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. As described in more detail below, in January 2010, the Company entered into a new $15.0 million term loan, the proceeds of which were used to repay the remaining $14.2 million of outstanding principal from the Ableco LLC term loan and to pay $0.5 million in loan costs incurred in connection with the new SunTrust credit facility. During the first six months of 2010, the Company made mandatory payments totaling $1.5 million on its new term loan and reduced its capital lease obligations by $0.1 million.
