As we reported earlier today, in the second quarter of 2012, ARC delivered $106.2 million in revenue, a gross margin of 31.8% and $4.5 million in cash flow from operations. Adjusted earnings per-share for the quarter came in at $0.02.Year-to-date our cash flow remains strong at nearly $17 million and as noted, [inaudible] remains undrawn.As you seen in the past, we continue to manage our business effectively, even under very challenging market condition, enabling us to meet our financial obligations comfortably. We have also repeatedly said that we are positioned in the company for recovery. Most of this positioning has been in the form of structural changes to our work force, footprint and construction.During the past two quarters however, we have also started to aggressively increase our investments in the business with the recovery in mind. During the second quarter, we hired more than 65 college graduates from all over the country, and get them in a intern and focus training program, and we are now in the process of deploying them in the field under the guidance of executive mentor, senior sales people, and of course, our deeply experienced sales management team.
