Here are some of the highlights from the first quarter fiscal year 2011. For the June quarter, total revenue was $51.4 million, an increase of 38% year-over-year and 8% sequentially. Our operating income was $3.1 million or 6% and earnings per diluted share was $0.13. Our Q1 growth was broad-based and spent many of our services, geographies and industries.
