We are pleased by the 35% growth in our net income for the first six months of 2012, based on the success we experienced in our domestic operations. We are currently in discussions with several Fortune 500 companies and expect to secure additional contracts that will augment our rapidly escalating revenue base and net income. The Company is confident that we have successfully implemented our long-term plan to reposition the Company for sustained, profitable growth for the foreseeable future. Our first six months results provide us with confidence in meeting our 2012 guidance of $90 million in revenue.
Our international division’s net revenue grew by 105% in the second quarter based on strong growth from recent acquisitions in Mexico, Romania and Turkey. These additions provide proof of efficacy in our acquisition model. We have identified several potential acquisition candidates that could provide immediate earnings to our bottom-line. Our financial growth is typically the strongest during the second half of the year, and we fully expect that trend to persist in 2012.
