Additionally, in the fourth quarter we successfully realized profitability of US$4.1 million and GAAP profitability US$1.7 million. Total revenues for the full year 2011 reached US$181 million, 31% increase over the previous fiscal year.A year ago, we promised you we will control our media costs and no interest spent by more than 10% for the full year 2011 and we have delivered. We successfully limited 2011 annual media cost step up to just 5.3% much lower than the previous announced target. This was achieved through actively resource management and the restructuring of contract terms with various radio and broadcasting bureaus, and subway and bus companies.In 2012, we will continue to pursue this effective cost control strategy optimizing our media network structure with a goal of limiting of year-over-year step up in media costs for 2012 to no more than 10% based on our existing media network.
