I would now like to turn the call over to Michael.Michael Chi Thank you, Joanne. Thank you all for joining our call today. Our second quarter results were in line with our previous expectations. During the quarter, we continued to work on developing and releasing our variety of expansions packs and the content enhancements which are part of our consistent efforts to maintain healthy lifecycles for existing games. At the same time, we also continued to focus on the development of the new games in our deep and diverse pipeline. In July, we unveiled Legend of the Condor Heroes, a new 3D MMORPG which is currently under development. This game adapted from novel of the same name by the highly acclaimed martial arts author Louis Cha. We have also adapted another game from Mr. Cha’s well known martial arts novels Return of the Condor Heroes which we are scheduling for launch soon this year.
