Thanks for being here today with us. I would like to just give you a quick update on the company. I'll start off by just saying there has been a number of years and our company have felt as positive of a vibe among the employees and buzz around the office and hopefully you will see why from our presentation.
For those that have followed us that all you’ll know that for the past few years we've been really focusing on managing the company to restore the strength in our balance sheet and have not really done a whole lot to progress growing the company forward. We're at the point of kicking off a new growth period in the company. We're going to be focusing on two areas where we occupy a dominant position in significant market niches within the Subsea sector.
