The acquired business has now been profitable for three consecutive quarters, in line with the Board's expectations, although regional performance has varied. Now we must meet even higher expectations. We believe our proven business model, an enhanced product portfolio, and a heightened focus on operational efficiency will enable us to optimize profitability across the globe. We are moving quickly to address these issues and to take advantage of the strong demand that exists for our products.
Our first priority has always been to provide highest-quality, innovative products to our customers. Working together with Microsoft, we have made it easy for our joint customers to get the reliability, service and support only available from genuine software, at great competitive pricing. As a global corporate citizen, we want to lead the efforts to make it possible for ordinary users to enjoy genuine software and to help foster the healthy and orderly development of the IT industry in every country in which we do business.
