Steve?Steve Mihaylo Thank you, Jeff. Before I get started here, I want to remind everyone that first of all I’m going to be giving an overview of the highlights then I’ll have Jon Erickson give a more granular overview. Then we are going to open it up to Q&A after that but I’d also like to remind everyone that we filed our 10-Q at the same time we filed our press release and I encourage all of you to go the 10-Q for any additional granularity that you may be looking for. I’m going to start with our revenue first and then I’ll talk about net income and then I’m going to turn it over to Jon Erickson. Revenue for the first quarter of 2010 decreased 18% to $17,094,000 compared to $20,931,000 for the comparable period in 2009. The lower revenue was a result of a 5% reduction in the number of workshops conducted during the first quarter of 2010 as compared to the comparable quarter in 2009. A decrease in the percentage of attendees purchasing products to 26% in the first quarter of 2010 compared to 28% in the comparable quarter of 2009, a 21% decrease in the number preview buyers attending our workshops compared to the prior year quarter. I might just give you a little bit of color here. We actually have more people in the previous but fewer people in the workshops. As well as a 39% reduction in principal cash collected on receivables portfolio and that’s the result of having lower sales. The remaining decrease in revenue primarily related to commissions derived from third parties which decreased 22% $2,581,000 for the three months ended March 31 2010 compared to $3,330,000 for the three months ended March 31 2009.
The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in commissions from third parties as a result of fewer leads sent to the third parties due to a decrease in the company’s product and service sales. The decrease in revenue from workshops was offset by an increase of $1 million as a result of the change in the Avail 24/7 contract and here again Jon Erickson will go into that.Revenue from our Crexendo Business Solutions division was $2,42,000 compared to zero in the comparable period last year. Total operating expenses decrease 9% to $17,975,000 for the first quarter of 2010 compared to $19,704,000 for the comparable quarter in 2009 primarily as a result of conducting fewer workshop events. This netted the company for the first quarter of 2010 a $123,000 or $0.01 per diluted common share compared to $1,552,000 or $0.14 per common share on the comparable quarter last year. Income before tax provisions for the first quarter of 2010 was $248,000 compared to $2,778,000 in the comparable quarter last year. The income tax provision for the first quarter of 2010 was $125,000 compared to an income tax provision of $1,226,000 in the prior quarter. The higher the normal income tax provision in the current quarter is primarily due to the expiration of the Federal Research and Development Tax Credit. At this time I’m going to turn this over to Jon Erickson who will go through the granularity at which time we’ll open it up for questions after he is finished.
