Thanks Gail. Good morning everyone. Total sales for the second quarter of 2012 were $148.4 million versus $135.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, an increase of $13.1 million or 9.7%. Sales in each of our three segments increased in the second quarter of 2012 as compared to 2011. Currency translation had a negative impact of $3 million on sales for the second quarter of 2012 due to the stronger dollar.

Regarding our segments. Sales in the Activated Carbon and Service segment increased $4.8 million or 4% for the second quarter of 2012 compared to 2011's second quarter. Contributing to this quarter over quarter increase was a higher demand in the potable water market and the higher pricing the metals recovery market.
