At this time, it is my pleasure to turn the call over to Dave DeWalt. David DeWalt Okay, thank you, Kate. Good afternoon, and welcome, everyone. Thanks for joining us for our call today. Before we really get started, let me start things off with officially introducing and welcoming our new CFO, Jonathan Chadwick. As many of you saw, Jonathan came on board about 45 days ago and personally, I cannot be more pleased to have him on our team. And as expected, he's really hit the ground running. Jonathan brings a very unique set of skills to our management team after 13 years at Cisco in a number of key management roles and a focus on M&A and strategy for their company. Jonathan, you want to say a few words before we get started?
Jonathan ChadwickSure. Thank you, Dave, for that really warm welcome. I’m truly excited to be here today as part of the McAfee team. I really do see this as being a great time to be at McAfee and in the security technology market. This has been a great month or so and I want to thank all the McAfee team members that have made me feel so welcome from day one. And I'm also looking forward to working with many of you within our shareholder community over the coming months. David DeWalt Welcome, Jonathan. I'll practice your accent. All right, well let's get started. Q2 was a really challenging, emotional, but really rewarding quarter, probably the most I've had in my career. In the face of some very difficult adversities, McAfee emerged stronger than ever, and I for one am very optimistic, more optimistic than ever while I've been here at McAfee. Today, I'd like to discuss and comment on five major themes that capture the essence of the opportunity and the optimism I see in the market and for the company. First, I see continued improvement in the macroeconomic conditions for IT. We’ve seen multiple successive quarters of improvement in spending, in most segments worldwide. This, coupled with the dramatically improving market expansion for security endpoints creates a strong positive business dynamic for McAfee. In addition, McAfee managed to overcome significant adversity and turn this into a market advantage through focused Q2 initiatives. As a result, I believe McAfee, in one of its best quarters in years as highlighted by exceptional execution in bookings, operating expenses, big deal contracts, major PC OEM extensions, new partnerships and outstanding cash flow from operations. I believe the future never looked brighter as we're now set to drive market share growth for years to come. Read the rest of this transcript for free on seekingalpha.com
