In addition, just hitting some highlights here, we achieved double-digit revenue growth in all 3 major geographies as well as double-digit growth in our software license and our maintenance and service businesses. The Apache financial results were slightly ahead of our projections, and we made good progress in our integration efforts, but of course, there's a lot more work ahead of us. Our recurring revenue went to 72%, our operating margins remained strong at 50%, our deferred revenue grew to an all-time high of $299 million. We generated $83.6 million in operating cash flows. And on the hiring front, as we have mentioned on previous calls, we added a net 40-plus new employees for the quarter, and there's more plan in Q2 in the second half of 2012.So with that, there are many positive aspects in the quarter. In addition to that, including strong revenue performance in Germany and North America, most notably. And then as always, there were some isolated sales execution issues that impacted the quarter and have been the top priority for us in Q2 and the remainder of 2012.
