Thank you, Operator. Welcome to IDT's first quarter fiscal 2020 earnings call covering results for the three months period ended October 31st, 2019. I'm joined today on the call by Marcelo Fischer, IDT's Chief Financial Officer. For a more detailed report on our results, please read our earnings release filed earlier today and our Form 10-Q, which we will file with the SEC next week.

We delivered consistent results in the first quarter of our 2020 fiscal year, highlighted by expansion of our higher margin growth initiatives and expansion of our lower margin Mobile Top-Up service offset by the expected decreases in our BOSS Revolution Calling and Carrier Service revenues.

Net2phone's cloud-based UCaaS offerings increased revenue 50% year-over-year, and 35% excluding the impact of our acquisition of Versature, while subscription revenue increased 87%. Net2phone's UCaaS revenue growth this quarter, although strong, came in below our internal targets.

We are working to accelerate deployments of new feature sets later this fiscal year that will enhance our ability to compete and win larger accounts, particularly in the US where agents and customers are escalating their requirements for advanced functionalities.

During the first quarter, we launched a net2phone third-party agent partner portal in key international markets and expect to see a significant positive impact from this initiative in the coming quarters. At October 31st, net2phone served 112,000 seats globally,
