Our investment in revenue responsible headcount is beginning to take hold, as we made progress toward our goal of accelerating revenue growth going into the second half of this year. In addition, we are also taking steps to improve operating margins and further accelerate leverage as we layer additional revenue on our operating platform," said David L. Dunkel, Chairman and CEO. Mr. Dunkel continued, "Demand for our services, particularly in Technology, remains strong. We also continue to see a secular shift where our clients are increasingly seeking a higher degree of variability in the composition of their workforce as they look to mitigate economic uncertainty and the increasing complexity and costs of employment. As Kforce has approximately a 3% market share, we believe there are significant opportunities in the growing domestic professional staffing market. I want to thank all of our employees and consultants for their hard work, dedication and progress this past quarter. "
