Excluding the AutoUSA contribution, revenues grew 25%. Operating income was $0.756 million against $0.003 million a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.574 million or $0.15 per diluted share against $1.202 million or $0.13 per diluted share a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA excluding acquisition expenses grew to $2.558 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014, compared to $1.202 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for last year's first quarter.

For the quarter, there was about $250,000 of CapEx. The company provided earnings guidance for the second quarter of 2014. For the quarter, the company announced based on current business trends, the company expects that 2014 second quarter revenue growth will be in the range of 47% to 53%, compared with the 2013 second quarter, and that earnings per diluted share will be in the range of $0.04 to $0.06, based on 11.5 million diluted average weighted shares outstanding.
