During the quarter, we eliminated more than 600 positions in our title operations and made significant progress on our previously stated $50 million cost savings project, identifying nearly $55 million in run rate cost savings. Our quarterly results also included one-time expenses of $9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, representing our portion of the costs related to the Remy's debt restructuring in late 2010 and early 2011. Overall, this is a very positive start to what most experts have predicted will be a very difficult year in the mortgage and real estate markets. We believe we have our company positioned for strong performance for the remainder of 2011.We made modest stock repurchases during the quarter, repurchasing an approximately 800,000 shares at an average price of $13.84 for total proceeds of $11 million. We have a bond payment due in August of this year of approximately $165 million and, therefore, are conserving some cash to ensure that could be made on a timely basis.
