Before I turn the call over Ken, I want to give you a quick update on VAC, which we acquired in August of this year. I am pleased to report that the integration of VAC is essentially complete and the business is performing very well against plan. Even though we’ve only reported two months of this stub year, we’re strongly encouraged by what we are seeing in this business. VAC’s high quality products, blue chip customers and strong R&D efforts have provided major portfolio diversification for our company. We believe that VAC will meet or exceed our expectations in 2011 and also enter 2012 with significant momentum.Adding to the strong VAC performance, we also benefited from strong contributions from our Engineered Materials, Battery Technologies, and Specialty Chemicals. For 2011, we are on trend to generate pro forma revenues approaching $2 billion, and operating profit could approach $250 million.
