Equipment Operation’s operating profit of $524 million, that’s 1% better than last year, and the margin that’s implied this 10.4%, 30 basis points lower than last year. The first half operating cash flow of $281 million, that’s up 21% versus last year, but more importantly in Q2 in the quarter itself, we record $789 million of positive operating cash flow, which is 67% better than Q2 of last year and that embeds a positive contribution from working capital, which on a year-to-date basis becomes a negative number. The net income before restructuring, it translates into an EPS of $1.47 versus $1.33 last year.On slide five, we continue with some of the highlights that I’d just like to touch upon the third line item, which is Financial Services net income being up 50% versus last year on better risk cost of funding and overall higher portfolio’s under management at the level of our Financial Services arm.
