Revenues for the second quarter were $63.6 million, an increase of $8.5 million, or 15%, from the second quarter of last year.

Our focus on cloud-based offerings is clearly paying off as evidenced by subscription and transaction revenues of over $30 million,” said Rob Eberle, President and CEO of Bottomline Technologies. “Strategically, we saw significant advancement in each of our major growth drivers during the quarter. We also completed a convertible debt offering on very favorable terms raising $167 million in additional capital. The combination of our continued execution, the strategic advancement of our growth plan and the additional capital on our balance sheet is expected to drive future predictable and profitable revenue growth for Bottomline.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We have presented supplemental non-GAAP financial measures as part of this earnings release. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. Core net income and core earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items, specifically amortization of intangible assets, impairment losses on equity investments, equity-based compensation, acquisition-related expenses (including acquisition-related earn-outs), restructuring related costs and non-core charges associated with the convertible notes we issued in December 2012. Non-core charges associated with our convertible notes consist of non-cash interest expense as well as gains or losses on derivative instruments arising from the notes. Acquisition-related expenses include legal and professional fees and other transaction costs associated with business and asset acquisitions, costs associated with integrating acquired businesses, including costs for transitional employees or services, integration related professional services costs and other charges we incur as a direct result of our acquisition and integration efforts. We believe that these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for an evaluation of the company with a focus on the performance of its core operations, including more meaningful comparisons of financial results to historical periods and to the financial results of less acquisitive peer and competitor companies. Our executive management team uses these same non-GAAP financial measures internally to assess the ongoing performance of the company. Additionally, the same non-GAAP information is used for planning purposes, including the preparation of operating budgets, and in communications with our board of directors in respect of financial performance. Since this information is not a GAAP measurement of financial performance, there are material limitations to its usefulness on a stand-alone basis, including the lack of comparability of this presentation to the GAAP financial results of other companies. A reconciliation of the GAAP results to the non-GAAP results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 is as follows:
