Let me note that our long-term prospects for growth remained solid and the recent weather challenges are temporary. We are focused on the opportunities we see ahead, our business fundamentals remain solid and we’re committed to continuing to manage each aspect of our business to deliver long-term value building growth.In fact, despite the difficulties in the second quarter, currency translation and ongoing weak macroeconomic conditions, the full-year guidance we’re providing today for both earnings per share and operating income is essentially the same as the guidance that we initially provided last December. We plan to deliver these results by managing the leverage of our business, including outstanding marketplace execution, customer service, cost control and our strong balance sheet.
