Let me point out that on page four of today's earnings release, we provide consolidated operations data and a reconciliation of adjusted operating cash flow or AOCF to operating income. I would now like to introduce, Hank Ratner, President and CEO of The Madison Square Garden Company.
Hank J. Ratner
Thank you, Ari. Our company’s positive operating momentum continues in it‘s fiscal third quarter highlighted by an increasing total adjusted operating cash flow of 46%. Reflecting on our year-to-date performance despite a shortened 66 game regular season for the New York Knicks, a prolonged dispute with Time Warner Cable, and an off season shut down of the Madison Square Garden arena as part of the transformation project, we have generated over $200 million in total AOCF over the first nine months of our fiscal year of 23% year-over-year increase. Our ability to deliver this level of growth is a testament to the breadth and strength of our assets and brands and the value we provide to customers and partners.
