We have increased our Adjusted Funds from Operations guidance for 2011 to approximately $3.00 per share, which is indicative of the strength of our core operations. Our strong cash flows will continue to give us the ability to return value to our shareholders as evidenced by the execution of our share repurchase program during the third quarter.
