Okay. Peter, thank you. Looking at the financial results from the press release for the quarter and nine months year-to-date as far as revenue was concerned, we came in at for the quarter at $278.044 million versus last year’s $253.193 million. That’s a year-to-year growth of 9.82%. You can add some there $3.8 million, the result of negative impact of the exchange ratios. And then some couple of $1 million of license revenue that was converted to SaaS, then we could have had an increase quarter-to-quarter of about 12%.
From our point of view it’s an excellent performance, even though the economic conditions have not really improved. Year-to-date revenue increased to $805.005 million versus $733 million last year. That’s a 9.71% growth and if you adjust for the foreign exchange you would have been of to 10%. Gross margin for the quarter is $152.593 million, or 54.88. For the nine months gross margin came in at 55.83% for fiscal year 2012 versus 55.23% which was probably the fiscal year 2011 for the nine months. A slight improvement over last year.
Operating income for the nine months has improved to $176 million which is 21.87% from $154 million, 21.5%. An improvement on the operating income percentage and dollars as well. Still on a non-GAAP basis, and year-to-year and to first nine months, net income and EPS improved. Net income improved from $110 million to $126 million, that’s 14.75%. And EPS improved from $1.34 to $1.55 which is a plus 15 point, 6%-7%.
