We have continued to see consistent demand for our services and have been able to capitalize on this demand through both increases in revenue and improvements in operating margins. Total Tech revenue for 2012 of $675.6 million represents historically high revenues for that business unit. We also experienced a sequential revenue increase during Q4 in all our Flex business lines on a billing day basis. During the fourth quarter, we significantly intensified our focus on accelerating future revenue growth by adding a significant number of sales associates as a result of our view that we will remain in a positive environment for professional temporary staffing for the foreseeable future. I want to thank all of our employees, consultants and clients for making 2012 another successful year for Kforce."
