    John Donahoe

    President and Chief Executive Officer
    Thanks, Tom, good afternoon everyone, and welcome to our Q2 earnings call. We had a strong second quarter enabling $51 billion of Commerce Volume up 21%. Revenue was up 14% and non-GAAP EPS was up 12% and double-digit active user growth continued to accelerate for both eBay and PayPal . Our second quarter and first half performance underscores our company's strengths and opportunities. Led by mobile, our commerce revolution is underway and we're well-positioned to capitalize on the accelerated changes happening globally.

    We're a mobile commerce leader adding more than 3 million new customers in Q2 through mobile. eBay and PayPal each expect to do $20 billion of mobile commerce and payments volume this year. And our global commerce platforms are a competitive advantage enabling commerce to happen any time, anywhere.

    In Q2, we generated $11 billion of cross border trade to our platforms, 22% of total enabled commerce volume for the quarter. With our technology assets and capabilities, we are enabling new retail interfaces. For example, our partnership in Q2 with Kate Spade Saturday reimagined reimagine the storefront window as a 7/24 shopable screen. We're also creating diverse new consumer experiences from ordering online and picking up in store to ordering via mobile and having the product delivered to you wherever you are.

    To ordering launch ahead and skipping a long line innovation is everywhere and the seamless web enabled omnichannel multiscreen commerce environment is rapidly emerging. We intend to be a leader in this new commerce world. Before getting into our second quarter results let me briefly recap three things we share with you at our investor day earlier this year. First with technology accelerating change in how consumer shop our company has a bigger addressable market, the $10 trillion commerce market by 2015 we expect to enable $300 billion in commerce volume up from a 175 billion in 2012. This is one of the ways we will measure our success.

    Second, our core businesses are strong we've proven monetization models and we've built a powerful set of technology and innovation capabilities. And third we see four emerging battlegrounds of omni-channel commerce, mobile, local, global and data. And our global commerce platform technology assets and innovation capabilities leave us well-positioned to lead and compete. We have clear strengths, opportunities and capabilities in each area. In this environment both retailers and brands need a partner and that's who we are a partner, not a competitor.

    Our success is strongly tie to enabling others to win whether an entrepreneur or a global brand. Commerce is never a zero sum gain and in this period of disruption and innovation we believe technology should enable more opportunity for everyone.
