The operating results represent a $1.6 million increase in non-GAAP net income from the second quarter last year.

"We continue to deliver both customer value and business plan results. From a financial perspective, we were especially pleased with the increase in EBITDA," said Joe Mullen, CEO of Bottomline Technologies. "We have also recently announced two acquisitions. The purchase of Visibillity adds to our strong position in the growing legal spend management market. The acquisition of Tranmit, which was announced yesterday, extends our product set in the invoice management and payables solutions market. Looking forward, we believe we have more value to offer both our large customer base and new clients."
