iCollege (ASX:ICT) has made leaps and bounds on its operational performance from this same time last year, with revenue up 175% year-on-year (YoY) to $12.5m. 

Operating cash flows payable to iCollege stood at $6.5m at the end of quarter; which did not include a subtraction brought about by the cost of an M&A process commenced late last year with Redhill Education. 

iCollege is an online vocational education provider; with its Redhill M&A, the company hopes to become a leading Australian training company. Merger costs were placed at $1.3m, leaving iCollege safely in the green with over $5m on hand.
