We do not undertake and expressly disclaim any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the dates of these statements, except as required by law.

In addition to GAAP financial measures, we used certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude charges related to amortization of the acquired intangible assets and the acquisition and other costs related to the recent acquisition of RS and related income tax effects. ERT believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because of the supplemental information facilitates comparisons of its operations from period-to-period and to the performance of other companies within its industry and also assisting gaining a better understanding of its operating results and future prospects. The discussion of the use of non-GAAP measures is contained in the press release that we issued this afternoon.I will first give highlights for the second quarter and details on new bookings and our operations. Keith will then discuss the detailed financials for the quarter. I will then discuss some strategic directions for ERT as a result of the acquisition of RS. We will then open up the call to questions.
