Manav Patnaik - Barclays Capital

Hi, good afternoon everybody. My name is Manav Patnaik, I am Barclays information services analyst. I cover Gartner. Given it was a part technology conference, I thought it makes complete sense to have Gartner here as well. I do have a one overweight grading on them. I find the growth opportunity here attractive in the predominant research subscription model which leads to pretty strong free cash flow generation very attractive as well. So that’s sort of my quick pitch. But we have – thank Chris Lafond, CFO to be here as well as Brian Shipman who is the IR in charge there. So without taking any more time, Chris.

Chris Lafond

Thank you all for spending a little bit of time on Gartner. Let me take you right into the presentation. For those of you that don’t know Gartner, we are the leading provider and the best source of information for our clients in terms of how and where to use both information technology and supply chain management best practices to accomplish your objectives. And I will tell you what that means in terms of our business and the value that we provide to our clients.

What I want to do today is talk about kind of four things that all lead to the fifth thing which is, I will talk a little bit about our value proposition, our market opportunity, the strategy we’ve been executing, the business model we have that takes advantage of those things and finally, if we execute on all of those things well, why we believe we will continue to grow our business at double-digit rates both from a revenue, cash flow, EPS perspective over the long term which -- and I will show you some of the metrics that we have been delivering over the past six or seven years.
