Our operating income for the quarter was $2.3 million versus an operating loss of $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2009, which is a $5.9 million improvement quarter over quarter. Year to date operating income improved $9.5 million, from an operating loss of $7.2 million as of June 30, 2009 to operating income of $2.3 million as of June 20, 2010. To our shareholders, this improvement translates to a $0.38 improvement in quarterly earnings per share from a $0.25 loss to a $0.13 gain, and a $0.71 improvement in year over year earnings per share from a $0.61 net loss per share as of June 30, 2009 to $0.10 earnings per share as of June 30, 2010. To our employees this means the removal of the five percent pay reduction that was implemented last year.
