"We are having success increasing website conversions and are now experiencing double digit site yield improvements over our former website. Furthermore, we continue to strengthen our SMB initiatives, including an increased contribution from our resellers. We have also announced a definitive agreement to acquire Zmanda, which will enable us to expand our market opportunity and enhance our ability to more fully address the unique backup needs of small businesses by adding cloud server and database backup."
