Before we begin, I’d like to advise you of upcoming investor conferences in which Super Micro will be participating. On February 11 th, we will attend the Stifel Nicolaus Technology and Telecom Conference in Dana Point, California where we will present and participate in one-on-one meetings.
By now, you should have received a copy of today’s news release that was distributed at the close of regular trading and is available on the company’s website. As a reminder, during today’s call, the company will refer to a presentation that is available to participants in the Investor Relations section of the company’s website under the Events and Presentation tab.
Please turn to Slide 2.
Before we start, I’ll remind you that our remarks include forward-looking statements. There are a number of risk factors that could cause Super Micro’s future results to differ materially from our expectations. You can learn more about these risks in the press release issued earlier this afternoon, our form 10-K for Fiscal 2011, and other SEC filings. All of those documents are available from the investor relations page of Super Micro’s website at www.supermicro.com.We assume no obligation to update any forward looking statements. Most of today’s presentation will refer to non-GAAP financial results and outlooks. For an explanation of our non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to Slide 3 of this presentation or to our press release published earlier today. In addition, a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is contained in today’s press release and in the supplemental information attached to today’s presentation. I’ll now turn the call over to Charles Liang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Charles Liang Thank you, Perry, and good afternoon everyone. Please turn to Slide 4. First, let me provide you with the highlights of our second quarter. The second quarter revenue was 249 million, or 0.8% higher than last quarter, and is 3.8% higher year over year.
