Excluding the onetime expenses related to senior leadership transitions in the quarter, our run rate results which I believe are more relevant for the purposes of our discussion are even stronger with an adjusted combined ratio of 88.4, and an adjusted annualized operating return on equity of 11.3%.In addition to the senior leadership transition charges our results were also affected by the investment markets with lower interest rates and negative equity returns. Our investment portfolio delivered a total return of 0.5% for the quarter. Nevertheless our diluted book value per share grew almost 3% in the quarter to a record $40.55.
