Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Fourth Quarter 2015 Perficient Earnings Conference Call. My name is Cowanda and I will be your coordinator for today. [Operator Instruction].
I would now like to turn the conference over to President and CEO, Jeff Davis. Please proceed sir.
Thank you, and good morning. With me on the call as usual is Paul Martin, our CFO, I'd like to thank you for your time this morning. As typical, we've got about 10 to 15 minutes of prepared comments after which we'll open up the call for questions.
Before we proceed, Paul, would you please read the Safe Harbor statement?
Thanks, Jeff, and good morning, everyone. Some of the things we will discuss in today's call concerning future company performance will be forward looking statements within the meanings of the securities laws. Actual results may materially differ from those discussing these forward-looking statements. We encourage you to refer to the additional information contained in our SEC filings concerning factors that could cause those results to be different than contemplated in today's discussion.
At times during this call, we will refer to adjusted EPS, our earnings press release, including a reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Our GAAP is posted on our website at www.perficient.com. We have also posted a slide deck which includes a reconciliation of certain non-GAAP rules to the most directly comparable financial measures compared in accordance with GAAP on our website under Investor Relations.

During the fourth quarter, the offshore revenue represented more than 6% of overall revenues. We talked about this last quarter as well. Our acquisition in early 2015 of Zeon was responsible for some of that growth but not all of it. In fact, revenue from our
