"Echo posted total revenue of over $211 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of almost 30% from the fourth quarter of 2011," said Doug Waggoner, Chief Executive Officer of Echo. Waggoner added, "This growth was achieved despite a soft freight environment, and was driven by the investments we are making in our business."

(2) Amounts shown exclude the tax effected changes in contingent

Included in our full year results is a $0.07 charge for an acquisition related loss on the acquisition of Shipper Direct. We have filed a Form 8-K reflecting the impact on our third quarter results. We intend to file a Form 10QA as soon as practically possible.

"Our fourth quarter results reflect the resiliency of our market strategy in all phases of the economic cycle," said Dave Menzel, Chief Financial Officer of Echo. He added, "Our Sharp acquisition supplemented our organic growth strategy with $18.5 million of revenue during the quarter, while our Enterprise business complemented our transactional client base in the fourth quarter, growing by 16.9% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. As we made investments in our sales force and technology to support our long term growth objectives, our diversified sales strategy continued to deliver double digit total revenue growth."

Business Outlook
Waggoner stated, "Our investments in our people and our service capabilities during 2012 position us well for continued growth and improving profitability in 2013. We are focused on generating returns from these investments while continuing to execute our long term strategy."

"In 2013, we anticipate delivering total revenue in the range of $940 million to $980 million and earnings per share in the range of $0.82 to $0.90," Mr. Waggoner continued. "We anticipate operating margin increases in the second half of the year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes the following financial measures defined as "non-GAAP financial measures" by the Securities and Exchange Commission: Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Fully Diluted EPS. We refer to Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Fully Diluted EPS to describe earnings and earnings per share excluding the effects of changes in contingent consideration payable, non-recurring settlement costs and the charge for a loss related to the acquisition of Shipper Direct. We believe that Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Fully Diluted EPS provide useful information to investors because they provide information about the financial performance of the Company's ongoing business.

Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Fully Diluted EPS are used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and evaluation of overall operating performance. Non-GAAP Operating Income, Non-GAAP Operating Margin, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Fully Diluted EPS may be different from similar measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. For a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest comparable GAAP measure, see "Reconciliation to GAAP Operating Income, Operating Margin, Net Income and Fully Diluted EPS" included in this release.
