Travelport's Net Revenue of $550 million for the first quarter of 2012 was $19 million (4%) higher than the first quarter of 2011 as a result of a 4% increase in transaction processing revenue after a 2% increase in segment volumes. Operating Income and EBITDA were $66 million and $123 million, respectively, for the first quarter of 2012, representing a decrease of 16% in Operating Income and a decrease of 9% in EBITDA compared to 2011. Adjusted EBITDA was $140 million for the first quarter of 2012, a 5% decrease compared to 2011.

Interest costs of $67 million were $10 million lower for 2012 due to a lower effective interest rate, including the impact of interest rate hedges, and a lower net debt balance.

Travelport generated $29 million in net cash from operating activities of continuing operations, a $32 million decrease from 2011, due to a $20 million payment under the 2011 employee incentive plan in March 2012 and fluctuations in our collections and payments cycles.

Travelport's net debt was $3,169 million as of March 31, 2012, which comprised debt of $3,415 million less $109 million in cash and cash equivalents and less $137 million of cash held as collateral.

On May 8, 2012, Travelport successfully completed the refinancing of approximately $162 million of non-extended term loans due in 2013 through the issuance of new term loans due in 2015. In addition, Travelport extended the maturity of approximately $61 million of its revolving credit facility to May 2015.
