If we back our disc drive for both years, as well as revenues from Mobile Robot and InMoTx for 2011 for an apples-to-apples comparison between the two years, our core market revenues actually increased 32% year-over-year.

We feel confident in our strategic roadmap and how we will leverage our recent acquisitions with our existing core technologies to tap large, underserved markets with differentiated solutions.Our Mobile Robot technology is gaining traction and we recently signed an agreement to be the exclusive supplier or autonomous mobile robots based on our MP400 robotic platform to Swisslog Healthcare Solutions to be used in hospitals, labs and clinics to provide on-demand delivery systems. With the increasing financial strain on today's healthcare system, providers are eager to find ways to reduce repetitive duties, such as transporting items from one place to another to allow healthcare workers to focus on patient care. Our autonomous mobile robot solutions are uniquely suited to carry out these monotonous tasks, increasing efficiency and improving the quality of care within the healthcare system. This particular agreement is a validation of the maturity of our Mobile Robot technology for use in high traffic people environment and an excellent illustration of how our systems can replace existing below efficiency, labor-intensive logistics with autonomous flexible solutions, which are secure, traceable and deterministic. This solution extends well beyond healthcare facilities to production facilities, clean rooms, laboratories, warehouses, distribution centers and even retail outlets, creating an enormous future opportunity for Adept. We remain enthusiastic about this acquisition and believe our industry-leading, natural feature-based autonomous navigation and mapping, which we deliver today in our MP400 platform and our [motivity] core, is uniquely positioned within the commercial market.
