Fox Good morning, everyone. In the next few minutes, we will review company performance and discuss the progress we're making on our strategic transformation. Operationally, both of our businesses continued to show progress in the quarter, and overall, we delivered solid revenue growth and profit improvement. As a result of our agreement to sell our Information Management business, let me focus on our continuing operations. Our revenue of $498 million represents an increase of 7% compared to total revenue of $465 million in the first quarter last year. Customer Management operating income of $39 million was up 21% compared with last year, and Customer Management EBITDA increased 18%, $58 million compared with $49 million last year. EPS from continuing operations in the first quarter was $0.22 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis. This represents a 29% increase from $0.17 per share last year. Overall, I'm extremely encouraged by our execution in the first quarter. Based on the improved operating performance, we are raising our revenue and earnings expectations for the full year. Strategically, we made significant progress as we reached agreement to sell our Information Management business for $449 million. With the anticipated close of this sale later this month, we will successfully complete the strategic repositioning of our company into a well-capitalized, market-leading Customer Management business. Our process to focus, simplify and execute began 2 years ago with the sale of our HR Management business in 2010, followed by the sale of the Cellular Partnerships in 2011.
As we said in the release issued yesterday, we are planning several management changes to align the leadership team with our strategic focus on Customer Management. During the fourth quarter, I will become Executive Chairman and Andrea Ayers will succeed me as President and CEO.
