With that said, I'll turn the call over to Chief Executive Officer, Vic Viegas. Vic?
Thanks Alex, and thanks everyone for joining us this afternoon. I'll start by providing a high level summary of our performance for the second quarter. Then I'll turn the call over to Shum for a more detailed review of our Q2 results. I will then discuss recent developments and our thoughts on the current business environment before opening up the call to your questions.Total revenues of $8.5 million for the second quarter were greater than anticipated. We achieved strong growth in our royalty and license revenue, driven by continued traction for our haptic solutions across a variety of end markets.In addition, we benefited from a reconciliation of certain customers royalty reports in the gaming market and from non-recurring gains in the medical business of approximately $1.1 million.Net income for the second quarter totaled $180,000 or $0.01 per share, as compared to a net loss of $8.9 million or $0.32 per share in the same period last year. We generated positive adjusted EBITDA of $2 million.Stepping back for a moment, Immersion has had a busy first half of the year. We completed the independent financial investigation and successfully transitioned the medical products group to CAE, thereby shifting the company to a predominately-licensing model. We have signed new licensees, launched new products, significantly reduced expenses and achieved a very favorable outcome in a piece of litigation in the medical simulation area. We now have a dedicated CEO and CFO in place. With the prior headwinds largely behind this, our ability to focus on execution coupled with a strong value proposition and favorable industry trends are allowing us to post strong growth in our ongoing business.
