Peter D. MeldrumThank you, Rebecca. To begin, I would like to provide highlights of our third quarter results and introduce the company’s updated guidance for this fiscal year. I’m extremely pleased to report that third quarters increased 27% year-over-year to reach a new record $129.8 million. All of our products contributed to this excellent performance, but COLARIS stood out with a 51% year-over-year growth. The second quarter in a row where COLARIS grew more than 50% year-to-year. Net income for the third fiscal quarter increased to $29.6 million, and resulted the diluted earnings per share of $0.34. These results were beyond our expectations, primarily due to our strategic initiatives to expand our oncology and women’s health markets.
