With that, I’ll turn the call over to Adam.Adam Miller Thanks Perry, and thank you to everyone participating in Cornerstone OnDemand’s first quarter earnings call. I am pleased to report that we continued to build upon the momentum of our business in Q1, with another very strong quarter. On a GAAP basis, revenues for the quarter came in at $24 million, representing a year over year increase of 52%, and bookings came in at $24 million as well, representing a year over year increase of 67%. We have added 85 new clients during the quarter, bringing the size of our global and mid-market client count to nearly 900, which is up 58% year over year. Our client additions in the first quarter were comprised of marquee names in both the private and public sectors, including Regis Corporation, the Container Store, USAID, the U.S. Small Business Association, the Denver Public Library, a multi-billion dollar global chemical company, and one of the world’s preeminent media companies. Our domestic and EMEA sales teams picked up right where they left off at the end of 2011, and finished the quarter strong.
