Turning to our results, leasing volumes were solid and better than a year ago. Office leasing in the first half of 2010 totaled 1.8 million square feet, compared to 1.3 million square feet lease in the first half of 2009. Some of the larger deals we achieved over the past six months have come with higher leasing CapEx, but these transactions were carefully vetted and stand nicely on their own merits. They are long-term, long non-credit and strong wins for Highwoods.OpEx and G&A are lower as we continued to be successful on our ongoing efforts to reduce expenses and improve efficiencies throughout our company. This has resulted in better same store NOI and G&A forecast in our updated FFO guidance.
