Looking forward to the second half of the year, we now project greater search in applications revenue growth than we previously expected, with modest sequential growth through the back half of the year. In terms of margin, we now expect the trends we've seen through the first half of the year to continue with OIBA margin in the segment roughly flat to the prior year.Moving on to our Match segment, our core Match businesses Match, People Media and Chemistry continue to grow with 12% revenue growth in the quarter. The second quarter was also our ninth consecutive quarter year-on-year double digits subscriber growth in the core businesses. Our revenue growth slowed modestly from the first quarter, in large part because we cut back unprofitable marketing on certain properties and delayed marketing spend on others to coincide with new products initiatives. We’re hopeful however that these new initiatives will strengthen that growth going forward.
