    Chief Financial Officer
    Thank you Jack.

    Let me begin with my usual callouts and observations. First, some color on the third quarter's 17% net revenue growth. It is important to note that this growth rate benefited from the absence of significant one-time claimed incentives incurred in the prior year. Without these one-time client incentives revenue growth for Q3 would have been closer to 14%.

    That said payment volume growth was broad based globally for the March quarter and we're seeing double-digit growth rates in the June quarter for both credit and debit on a constant dollar basis.

    Based on these trends and with three quarters of the fiscal year now on the books, we are raising full year 2013 revenue guidance from low double-digits to around 13%. Second, service revenue . They were up 7% on a year-over-year basis. It was down sequentially from the fiscal second quarter.
