Revenue growth of four percent in the second quarter
Revenues were up 4% compared with the same period in the previous year, currency adjusted the change was minus 1%. For the first half of the year our revenue growth was 9% and currency adjusted 7 %. The gross margin remains strong and reached 61 % (61.3) for the quarter. Operating earnings reached 3 MSEK compared with 8 MSEK in the previous year. Increased operating expenses to capture future growth and in line with earlier communications, is the main reason for the lower profitability. Cash flow during the quarter was strong and reached 15 MSEK compared with a negative 26 MSEK in second quarter the previous year. We continue to have relatively high trade receivables but the credit quality of our customer base mean a low level of risk in trade receivables.
Partners continued to generate good business during the quarter but the amount of direct business was higher than in recent periods. As stated earlier the amount of direct business will vary over time but the strong trend of doing business through our partner network remains. We also saw a large amount of repeat business with existing customers during the quarter. In line with our strategy, a major part of our business today, more than 70%, is coming from service providers i.e. network owners selling transport services. We have a special focus on fast growing economies and this time Asia represented 16 % of total revenues. The revenue split between the segments this quarter was 81% in the Broadcast and Media Networks and 19 % in DTT. We sold equipment for upgrades to DTT networks in e.g. Northern Europe and Latin America.
One of our major marketing efforts took place in the quarter when we were present at the NAB trade show 2012 announcing new partnerships and products. We started a new partnership to offer more complete wide as well as local area network solutions for the broadcast and studio environments. A new product in the Nimbra 300 series was launched, the Nimbra 310, that offers a cost effective and high performing MSR with guaranteed quality of service. This means a further expansion of our product portfolio to better address the access market.
