A second part of it is, Cooper has been gaining market share and we’ll get into that in a little bit. We also reported very strong earnings per share, GAAP earnings per share of $3.63 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $4.50. If I’d back up to the beginning of the year, we put out guidance, the upper end of guidance was $3.50. So, we obviously didn’t do a good job of giving guidance last year. Said another way, we had a fabulous year. I’m very happy with those things that went right, and we’re pretty proud of them.We also generated a lot of cash. $233 million in free cash flow, of which $79 million was delivered in the fourth quarter. Finished on a solid note from a revenue point of view with our fourth quarter revenue up 15%, 12% in constant currency, and once again 8% in organic constant currency and reported non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.46.
