With that said, I’d now like to turn the call over to Gideon.

Gideon Wertheizer

Thank you, Richard and welcome everyone. We’re pleased with our solid start to the year, which was driven by strong licensing revenues. Total revenue for the first quarter was $15.1 million, in the high-end of our guidance range and flat compared to the first quarter of 2011.

While we experience some expected toughness in the Royalty growth, which were discussed during the fourth quarter earnings call. These were partially offset by better than expected licensing revenues of $5.1 million, resulting from important agreement with key and existing – key new and existing customers.
