Rick Spurr Thanks Geoff. Good afternoon everyone and thank you for joining us today. I am pleased to announce that during the second quarter, we delivered the best financial results in our company's history. These results included strong new first year orders, which reached a record $2.5 million, up 46% sequentially from 1.7 million in the preceding quarter and up 22% from 2 million in the second quarter of last year. While our second quarter tends to be our strongest, we believe this significant increase in orders goes beyond seasonal trends and reflects the broad based increase in demand for email encryption. We are seeing more inbound enquiries, up 66% over last year. More activity from prospects buying email encryption for the first time and more opportunities to replace outdated or weak competitive solutions. The strong new order results in Q2 also reflects our increased number of mid-market channel partners which we grew by 80% over the last 18 months. We now have 191 combined managed security service providers and value added resellers compared to 106 at the end of 2010. This increased command also highlights what we talked about over the past few quarters that buyers have become better educated and are now more discriminating when it comes to selecting an email encryption solution. They now understand the robust capabilities and ease of use design features that are required for success and are demanding a more sophisticated solution like Zix Corp. prospective customers are starting to make buying decisions based on the feature set, quality and effectiveness of the solution they intend to implement including automatic policy based encryption, ease of use through transparency, strong analytics and reporting capabilities and best in class mobility support. This trend has and will continue to benefit Zix because of the quality and maturity of our solutions.
We’ve been focused on this market segment for more than 10 years. We are far away the leader in the market and continue to enhance the feature set, reliability, ease of use and the overall effectiveness of our solution.Let's get back to the Q2 numbers. From a top lying perspective, we recorded revenue of $10.3 million which was up 9.7% when compared to the $9.4 million we reported in the second quarter of last year. We also had record total bookings for the second quarter, a $13.6 million up 50% sequentially from $9.1 million in the preceding quarter and up 8.6% from $12.5 million in the second quarter of last year. Our record backlog at the end of second quarter of 2012 is very strong at $55.5 million up 6% both sequentially and year-over-year. We recorded our 10th consecutive quarter of GAAP profitability achieving GAAP net income of $2.6 million. On a fully diluted share basis, GAAP profitability was $0.04 per share. We also exceeded our non-GAAP adjusted net income guidance for the quarter, achieving non-GAAP adjusted net income of $3.1 million, up 12.8% over the $2.7 million reported in the second quarter of last year. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter on a fully diluted per share basis was $0.05 per share exceeding our guidance of $0.04 per share.
