Thanks, Kirk. Good morning, everyone and thank you for joining us today. I’ll start with highlights of our financial results followed by an update on our business. David King, our Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer will provide an update on the market role of our Three-Screen strategy. Emory Berry, our Chief Financial Officer will provider an in depth discussion of our financial results and I will close with some additional comments.
In the first quarter, we reported revenue of approximately $12.8 million with gross margins of 60.7% and operating expenses of approximately $8.8 million, we reported an operating loss of approximately $1.1 million and a loss per share of $0.12. As discussed in our August earnings call we continued to experience reduced spending from our top two North American MSO customers. And as a result first quarter revenue was noticeably impacted. I want to reinforce comments we made on the last earnings call.
The revenue impact is due to delays in implementing new projects in combination with utilization of existing VOD capacity, not cancellation of orders or reduced market share.
In terms of outlook, we are reiterating our prior view that is, we expect an overall bottoming out in the first half of fiscal 2010. We are seeing signs of the business firming up in our second quarter. And we anticipate revenue in the second half to be better than the first half.
Now let me turn to a brief update on our business. Despite the impact on our VOD business, market data indicates year-over-year growth in consumer Video-on-Demand viewing is in the double digits. This gives further evidence that the VOD market has underlying strength. In addition, our current and perspective customers are confirming that we are well positioned to capitalize on the fundamental shifts occurring in the video market place with our Three- Screen strategy.
We announced the launch of our video to the PC solution in September, and we are working with several customers to implement trials. We continue to make progress in the evolution of our media data and advertising solutions business model to software as a service, which has been adopted by ZON TV Cabo in Portugal and one of the top five North American cable operators.
To add a bit more color to this comment, TV Cabo will deploy our media data management solutions and operational reporting services for monitoring video usage, census level, media data management and operational analytics, all of which are key components of our MDAS. As we evolve the business, we’ve also continued to introduce new products and services to meet our customer’s needs such as our Central Data Warehouse or CDW product.
I will make a few comments on two additional milestones. Firstly, we are seeing a very good opportunity for our Three-Screen video and MDAS solutions in the Asia Pacific region. In September, we announced the appointment of a new executive for the region sales marketing and business development.
I should also point out that we received two important new VOD orders from mainland China in the first quarter. Lastly, we announced the expansion of our presence in the Silicon Valley with the opening of a new office in San Jose which will serve as our West Coast development office.
