Thanks Gary. I’d like to thank everyone for joining us on the call today. We’re very pleased with our company’s continued high level of execution, which led the strong third quarter results that again exceeded our expectations across each of our key operating metrics.
Tangoe continues to expand it’s market share leadership through the combination of new account wins, expansion with existing customers, traction with our strategic alliance partners and solid execution of our M&A strategy. Taking a look at our results for the third quarter, we continued to see strong demand for our Communications Lifecycle Management solutions, as total revenues increased 47% to $40.1 million, with our recurring revenue growing 48% year-over-year. Some of key enablers of our strong recurring revenue were the expansion in our sales resources, the strengthening of our market leadership position and our high renewal rates, which remained in the mid-90% range.
Our strong renewal rates continue to be driven by our ability to deliver a significant ROI to our customers and to offer innovative products that our customers and partners demand.
From a profitability perspective, adjusted EBITDA increased 82% year-over-year to $6 million. In addition, strong cash flows from operations contributed to un-levered free cash flow growth of 157% on a year-over-year basis and an un-levered free cash flow margin of 14%.
Now, I’d like to provide an update on some of our key accomplishments during the third quarter. We increased total spend under management to $22.6 billion during the third quarter, which was up 48% year-over-year. The strong growth of our spend under management was driven by a combination of moving deployments into production with both new and existing customers, the acquisition of Symphony TEM business and the high renewal rates I just referenced.
The momentum in Q3 was also due to the growing awareness of Tangoe’s ability to deliver a compelling return on investment and value proposition for our customers, evidenced by the attendance and excitement from Tangoe’s user conference in Orlando a few weeks ago, where we had a great reception to our long-term product roadmap.
Among the highlights of the conference, we announced matrix CLM our next generation Communications Lifecycle Management solution suite which we plan to fulfill through a series of incremental and integrated product releases over the next several years as part of our expanded innovation program moving forward. It is expected to be purpose bill to embrace the latest trends impacting large enterprises including the mobile device revolution including Tablets and smart devices, new alternative expense models like bring your own device, hybrid liability and pay as you go, IT Cloud services of lifecycle management, increase use of social networks in the enterprise, shipping complex global carrier dynamics and support for SIM enabled devices or machine to machine rapidly entering every facet of our lives at work and at home.
We expect the strategic technology vision will lead to innovations in Tangoe’s technology that range from incremental technology enhancements in most of our planned releases moving forward to new integrated add-on products. In doing so, we will remain true to Tangoe’s legacy of helping our customers drive cost savings while gaining visibility and control over their communication assets.
We also intend to expand support for security, policy, individual productivity and predicted analytics associated with all types of individual communications transactions. We believe that our core technology components combined with our strategic acquisitions provide the foundation for Tangoe to execute this exciting vision.
