Andrea GuerraWelcome to our third quarter review conference. Obviously, I am and we are all in Luxottica very pleased with our results. There are a number of reasons why we are pleased. I think the first being one of the main reasons why we live and we are in this market, and it is our brand portfolio, a portfolio which has demonstrated to be effective in very different market conditions. I am so happy to say that we are back with a solid double-digit high teens growth in our premium and luxury segment and not only what we shipped, but we also have an excellent order portfolio in our hands. The sun season has been good and long. And, obviously, Ray-Ban and Oakley were ahead of the pack. The second growth factor of which we are particularly pleased is our ability to grow in Europe and North America. In Europe, our growth rate has been 12%. In US, in dollars, our growth of our all our businesses have been plus 8%. So it means that in all developed markets of the world, we were able to grow and to have a solid growth rate.
