And now, over to Adrian.Adrian SarbuGood morning and good afternoon, everyone, and thank you for joining us today. We are very pleased with the results of the second quarter. Please turn to Slide 4. Our revenues increased by 24% year-on-year to $250 million, and our OIBDA grew by 36% to $63 million. Our results came in ahead of analyst expectations, putting us firmly on track to deliver on our targets for the full year. CME operations performed better than the advertising markets, which in the second quarter contracted by 3%. The strong results were driven by our powerful brands, leading Golean [ph] shares in broadcasting and fast growth in the Media Pro Entertainment and New Media divisions.
