Looking into detailed operating expenses. General and administrative expenses up about 52.9% year-over-year to 15.6 million mainly due to the incremental expenses from Wentai and that the share option incurred. As a percentage of revenue G&A expenses were 52.8% compared to 98.9% with the same time in fiscal 2010. A percentage remained high as infrastructure is built to support a more stabilized operation. However, as they further expand our revenue size its organic growth of Little New Star and Wentai as well as the additional contribution from Yuanbo from the coming quarter, we expect that the percentage of G&A expense to revenue will be lower in fiscal 2012.
