Europe was responsible for the remaining 43% of the quarterly sales. Sales decreased 20% to $56.7 million comparing to last year’s third quarter and there is no specific industry responsible for the reduced sales. Then our spare parts and service business decreased by 2% or $800,000 and accounted for approximately 28% of net sales for the quarter. I would say it’s a very stable business and demonstrates stable utilization of equipment in the factories.Some other statistics, breakdown of our quarterly laser sales by industry. Automotive 11% within the quarter versus 8% last year in 2011. Machine tool 37%, last year 39%. Semi electronics 24% this year and 27% in 2011. 2011 very strong consumer electronic industry by the way. And others 28% this time versus 26% in 2011.
