"We are very pleased to be able to report our fourth consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth, as well as 32.6 percent EBITDA growth, which is an acceleration from the first half of the year," says Robert Giardina, CEO of TSI. "During the quarter, we continued to post very solid comparable-club revenue growth along with double-digit member and ancillary revenue growth, and we are on track to meet our 2006 expansion goals while having established a pipeline of new clubs for 2007 and 2008."
Total revenue for the third quarter grew 11.4 percent to $109.4 million from $98.2 million for the same period last year. The increase in revenue was driven by growth in membership revenue and ancillary club revenue.
