Second quarter open orders were up 36% year-over-year, primarily driven by strong refinance activity. Also we’re encouraged by this year’s spring buying season with resale orders up 4% over the second quarter of last year. In addition our Commercial division had an outstanding quarter with revenues with $98 million up 16% compared to last year. Our Specialty Insurance segment achieved pre-tax earnings of $13 million revenues were up 11% and the overall loss ratio was 55%.On Tuesday of this week, we sold 4 million shares of CoreLogic stock.
