Matt Argersinger: Well, Steve Swad, thank you very much for joining us, David Gardner and me from The Motley Fool. You are the CEO of Rosetta Stone, and I guess I'll start with this. In its relatively short life as a public company, it seems like Rosetta Stone's had a lot of changes in the management team. Is there anything we, investors, should know about you and your team?

Steve Swad: No, I guess the way I think of the management team is let's build a group of people that complement each other and that can create value for shareholders, and run a company over the long term. And so we're trying to put a combination of technical expertise with some marketing savvy and some good, just basic management of financial discipline and take that team and run it hard for a long time.
