Thanks Derik and good morning everyone. I think you are all familiar with Safe Harbor statements, so I won’t spend a lot of time there. I think Bruker, what we would like to remind everybody is that, it’s a 52 year old company, significant financial operational improvement, a very strong product development engine. We have global distribution. We really focus I think on growing the business organically, strong market segment position and a very-very strong brand name and the company is certainly poised and positioned for future strong growth.Geographically, the company was founded in Germany, significant product development and manufacturing states still in Europe, Germany, France, Switzerland. We have several production sites now in the U.S. We have sales and marketing distribution service offices throughout the world. We do distribute primarily direct, some areas we do use distributors. We’ve got from – we’ve been known historically as a strong life science company but Bruker certainly has made inroads into the applied markets and into the industrial, the chemical marketplace and food safety detection, homeland security. And so our market basket is really much more balanced than it has been in the past.
