Joe PyneOkay, thank you Steve. Late yesterday, we announced record setting net earnings for the 2011 fourth quarter of a dollar per share reflecting a 69% improvement over the $0.59 per share reported for the 2010 fourth quarter. For the year, we announced record earnings of $3.33 per share, a 55% increase compared to $2.15 per share for 2010. Our record fourth quarter and year earnings were the result of strong demand for inland tank barge service, modest earnings contribution from our coastal marine tank barge business, strong earnings from our land-based diesel engine service business and improved earnings from our heritage marine diesel engine service business.
