In addition, we incurred a $38.7 million loss from the early extinguishment of debt as a result of the make-whole provision of the 7.25 notes, which were retired with the proceeds from the 5% note issuance. I’ll also point out that the loss on early extinguishment of debt had a bearing on our effective tax rate for the quarter as the $1.7 million cumulative rate adjustments in certain foreign jurisdictions were applied to a much lower taxable base as a consequence of this loss.Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $33.1 million, compared to $50.7 million in the prior year quarter. On a year-to-date basis, capital expenditures totaled $59.5 million in 2012, versus $84.2 million in the prior year. And we do continue to anticipate capital spending for the full year to be in the lower end of our range of $125 million to $150 million as we compressed capital in 2011 to take advantage of the accelerated tax deductions.
