We did, however, continue to generate strong cash flow during the quarter. We have free cash flow of $185 million in the second quarter of 2012. We continued to be active in deploying that capital. In the second quarter, we bought back $125 million worth of shares, or 5.3 million shares, at an average price of $23.37. In addition, we paid our first dividend of $0.13 per share in June. So we continued to make good progress with capital deployment.In the second quarter of 2012, access and broker services revenues were $66 million, up $7 million, or 12%, compared to the prior year. Our out-performance is driven by our unrelenting focus on innovation, which continues to deliver a pipeline of innovative new products, which are helping to reduce our customers' infrastructure costs and meet their performance requirements.
