As we look at the balance of 2012, our backlog is strong and we have excellent visibility into future revenues. We expect utilization to increase and margins to improve as the year progresses. We are focused on improving margins, especially as we complete our challenging projects in the Marcellus region and as wireless spending begins to aggressively ramp up. Today, more than ever, I believe MasTec's diversified business model is our key differentiator and one that has helped drive our success.Today, we serve numerous markets and industries that we believe have solid long-term fundamentals with would significant opportunities for expansion and growth. We strongly believe that our exposure to petroleum and natural gas pipelines and facilities, high-voltage electrical transmission, wireless infrastructure construction, and construction of power generation sources should continue to be excellent sources of growth and opportunity for MasTec for years to come.
