Due to CapEx and defense spending, this order was now repeated in '11 and it accounted for $12.5 million of the $15.7 million revenue decline in Q4 of '11 versus '10. And so as you see while the defense business is very, very challenged, the defense business was also very, very profitable for us and this is reflected in our financials.The Deliver and Service segment posted higher revenue for the quarter, despite encountering a variety of manufacturing issues during the launch of the Reach van and an unrelated delay in the shipping of some current step in units. Revenue for the quarter was up, still nearly 7% to $41.9 million due to higher aftermarket part sales primarily of the keyless remote product.
