“NextGen Healthcare maintains a disciplined and thoughtful approach to capital allocation and is committed to strategically deploying capital where we believe we can drive the greatest value for our shareholders,” said Jamie Arnold, Chief Financial Officer of NextGen Healthcare. “We believe our positive business momentum, including strong cash flow generation, provides us with ample capacity to return cash to shareholders while continuing to execute on our growth strategy.”
