I'd now like to turn the call over to Vivek.
Vivek Ranadive - Chairman and CEO: Hello (Molly) and thank you for joining us today. It's nice to be speaking to you again and discussing this first quarter of our new fiscal year. I'll begin the call with summary remarks on our Q1 performance and discuss the broader environment we are seeing, before turning it over to Murray and Sydney to discuss details.
We started the year right where we left off, and continued our record of strong execution. For the first quarter, total revenue came in at $226 million and grew by 22%. License revenue came in at $82 million and grew by over 17%. Non-GAAP operating profit grew by 17% and not get EBS came in $0.20, growing 25% over the same period a year ago.
For the third year in a row, we delivered accelerating revenue growth in Q1. This was the ninth consecutive quarter of growing EPS by more than 25% and this was the 15th consecutive quarter of beating consensus EPS estimates.
