We continue to make excellent progress with our subscription-based pricing models, which increased 44% over the prior year. Our improved earnings were driven by cost efficiencies implemented as part of our Commvault Advance initiatives which include simplification of our business processes with an emphasis on products and packaging, pricing, go to market messaging, partnerships and alliances, and organizational changes within sales and distribution. We believe these strategic transformation initiatives will position us for long-term, sustainable growth, while improving operating performance in the near term."
