We left you on a pretty positive note at the end of the last quarter. We’ll skip page 3 and 4 here, so moving on to Slide 5, which is the high level summary of first quarter results. Quarter one’s revenue has increased from $396 million in Q4 to $408 million this quarter. With all of the increasing attributable to our Contracting Service segment, an increase that more than offset to decrease in Oil and Gas revenues, resulting from lower oil and gas production. Consistent with the increased revenues, we also reported increased earnings in operating cash flow. The EBITDA generated of 209 million represents an all time post Caldag divestiture quarterly record for Helix. Moving on the Slides 6 and 7, quarter one’s reported EPS is $0.62. However, this is after absorbing 17 million of pretax charges or $0.10 after tax, associated with the early repayment of a portion of our Senior Unsecured Notes, and a portion of our Convertible Notes.
