Our customer focus and commitment to generating long-term value helped us gain 42 new customers during 2012, excluding those gained via acquisition. We experienced growth across all of our markets, and the fourth quarter of 2012 was the best quarter ever for the Commercial sales team. In addition, we dramatically expanded our modular solution suite, meeting our 2012 objectives to add Contract Lifecycle Management, Spend Analysis and Accounts Payable products. Our performance and accomplishments in 2012 provide us with an excellent foundation for continued success that will help to further solidify our leadership position in the marketplace. Our priorities in 2013 will be to capitalize on the significant opportunities that our expanded product suite and market focus provide, attract new customers and cross-sell our enhanced and expanded suite to existing customers. At the same time, we are focused on driving operational efficiencies across the business."

GAAP loss from operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.1 million compared to GAAP income from operations of $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.
