Our WinGuard sales increased in new construction markets by $1.8 million and in the remodeling markets by $1.9 million over 2011. These areas of growth reflect improving market conditions including increased housing starts mainly in the Southwest region of Florida, and targeted efforts to increase share in both Southeast and Southwest Florida.We did experience floor sales in our non-impact products of $600,000 and our Architectural Systems products decreased by $900,000 primarily driven by the completion of some large projects. Another EBITDA contributor was our gross margin improvement, for the second quarter of 2012, our gross margin was 35.5% compared to 19.9% for the second quarter of 2011, which after adding back consolidation charges and manufacturing inefficiencies, would have been 29.9%.
