Now if you will turn your attention to Slide 6, I will turn the call over to Frank Martire. Frank?Frank R. MartireThanks, Mary. Good afternoon, everyone, and thank you for joining us on today's call. I'll begin today's business review with a brief summary of our financial performance and business highlights for the second quarter. Gary will follow with the operations report, and Mike will provide additional insight into our financial results and our outlook for the remainder of the year.We are very pleased with our strong second quarter financial results. Organic revenue growth was 5.1%, driven by continued solid performance across all businesses. EBITDA increased 7.7%, and the EBITDA margin expanded 120 basis points to 30%. Earnings per share totaled $0.66, which represents a 22% increase compared to the second quarter of 2011. As you can see from the chart on the right, we have seen steady improvement in organic growth, driven by execution of our business plan and improved confidence within the banking industry compared to 2009.
