As we look at the fourth quarter in early 2012, we do expect short term challenges in a number of our markets given the current weakness among consumers, budgetary constraints at the federal state municipal levels and its seasonal softening in the demand for delivery and service products. However, we are focused on the fact is to drive profitable growth, specifically momentum in service and delivery vehicles, particularly the opportunities in other projects or field service solutions as we call them.The recent stability in our emergency response chassis and body markets, the successful and full integration of Classic Fire, the launch of our new revolutionary commercial van product “The Reach” and the retooling of our operational structure, continued pursuit of additional profitable growth initiatives with Isuzu and diversification into one or two other markets through either acquisitions, alliances or organic. Really, those are seven major items which we are very very focused on which will not only direct us, but which will start to see dramatic change in the right direction as time moves on.
