Growth in our maritime data revenue resulted primarily from the impact of pricing initiatives, in particular as a result of the elimination (with effect from January) of volume discounts previously available for older services and the implementation of certain price changes (with effect from May) in relation to our FleetBroadband service.  We continue to see strong take up of our FleetBroadband service.  During the half year 2012, we added 4,305 FleetBroadband terminals, of which 2,295 were added during the second quarter.  At the end of the half year we had more than 30,000 active FleetBroadband terminals.  In addition, the migration of certain leasing business to our maritime sector also contributed to our maritime revenue growth.
