TSYS reported net income for the third quarter of $25.5 million a 33.5% increase over 3Q/00. Revenues for 3Q were $163.0 million, an increase of 9.4%, compared with revenues of $149.0 million for the same period in 2000. If TSYS had included the results of its Vital Processing Services joint venture with VISA, pro forma revenues for the third quarter would have been $207.5 million. TSYS also noted yesterday that transaction and authorization volumes dropped on Sept. 11th, and the following week, as most people stayed home with their families. However, in the weeks that followed, those processing volumes returned to normal levels as consumers resumed their daily activities. As of Sept 30, TSYS had 212.4 million accounts on file.
