Let’s begin with our F2Q performance. The top line trends we saw in F1Q continued in F2Q with sales rising 13% to $101.7 million from the record $90.3 million in the prior year period. Revenue growth was driven by strength in the Engineered Films and Applied Technology Divisions, along with the addition of Vista Research revenues in Aerostar.We continue to benefit from favorable market dynamics in agriculture and energy and we’re leveraging these trends to drive revenue gains in Engineered Films and Applied Technology. Sales in these divisions continued at a record pace in F2Q. Even though a difficult federal spending environment existed and negatively impacted Aerostar’s performance we delivered a strong first half. The ability to do so once again highlights Raven’s diversified model.
