Thank you, Kevin. Good afternoon. Please turn to Slide 3. We generated $6.2 billion in revenue for our fiscal 2013 second quarter ending September 28, 2012, which was above the midpoint of our guidance range of $596.3 billion. Revenue declined $1.8 billion or 23% year-over-year, driven almost entirely by the transformation of our business model, reflecting a mix of that is significantly less High Velocity Solutions business, largely as a result of our ODM personal computing business in FY '12, which had contributed $743 million of revenue in our year-ago quarter.
Initially, in early FY '13, we took actions to wind down our assembly business with our largest mobile handset customer, furthering our portfolio transformation. Our second quarter adjusted operating income was $183 million, growing 4% year-over-year, and our GAAP operating income was $175 million, which improved 8% year-over-year.
Adjusted net income for the second quarter was $176 million and our GAAP net income for the second quarter was $160 million. Our second quarter results included gains of approximately $22 million net of tax or $0.03 a share benefit from a fair value adjustment related to warrants received to purchase common stock of Workday.
Our adjusted earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of $0.26 includes $0.03 gain -- includes a $0.03 gain and is up 18% year-over-year. Our GAAP EPS for the second quarter was $0.24, which is up 33% year-over-year.
Our diluted weighted average shares outstanding or WASO for the quarter was 678 million. This is a reduction of 7% or 53 million shares compared with the 731 million shares reported 1 year ago, reflecting the results of our share buyback programs. In September, we announced that our Board of Directors issued a new authorization permitting the repurchase of up to the current maximum limit of 10% of our outstanding shares.
Please turn to Slide 4. Our Integrated Network Solutions or INS business group totaled 44% of our sales during the quarter, declining from 46% last quarter. Revenue was $2.7 billion in the quarter, reflecting a slight decline of 2% sequentially and declining 9% year-over-year. This quarterly revenue performance is slightly below our expectations of stable revenue, as the weak demand trend we had identified for the June quarter continued this quarter for most of our larger telecom customers.
Breaking down our performance within INS on a sequential basis, we saw our telecom segment decline 11%, with broad-based weakness across most of our telecom customers. Weakness existed in both wireless and wireline infrastructure, but our wireless business was the weaker of the 2. Only partially offsetting this weakness was mid-single-digit growth from our data networking and high single-digit growth from our service storage customers. Our growth in data networking and server storage was due to products supporting video demand as well as data center and cloud deployments.
Year-over-year, we saw weakness across all our INS business segments, mostly due to a more challenging macroenvironment.
