We also have diversification by geography, and 75% of our business is in North America, about 17% in Europe, and 8% in the rest of the world. And as I mentioned a minute ago, and we will go into a little more detail, the Volker acquisition will enhance our presence internationally, and especially in Europe.

Customers are looking for improved outcomes, they are looking for reduced operating costs, and fortunately we are positioned to help them with those challenges.
