Net debt, that’s long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents, was reduced from prior year by $37 million to $215 million including approximately $85 million of new debt to fund the Inscape acquisition. In addition, we returned $48 million to shareholders in the form of dividend and repurchased $87 million worth of treasury shares during the year. At the end of April, cash on hand was approximately $260 million.Now I’d like to provide some information regarding the performance of Wiley’s global businesses.
