Before we get started, I would like to review Arrow’s Safe Harbor statement. Some of the comments to be made on today's call may include forward-looking statements, including statements addressing future financial results. These statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or facts to differ materially from such statements for a variety of reasons. Detailed information about these risks is included in Arrow's SEC filings. We will begin with a few minutes of prepared remarks, which will then be followed by a question-and-answer period.
As a reminder to members of the press, you are in a listen-only mode on this call, but please feel free to contact us after today's call with any questions you may have.At this time, I would like to introduce our Chairman, President and CEO, Mike Long.Michael J. LongThank you, Greer, and thanks to all of you for taking the time to join us today. We executed well in the second quarter, with revenue and earnings per share in line with our expectations even as the global macroeconomic climate weakened throughout the quarter. We continue to build the business strategically and make progress towards our corporate targets. We are investing cautiously as the macro environment continues to be challenging. We generated $61 million in cash from operations in the second quarter, and we had contributions from both business segments.
