For 2013, we expect the purchase to be accretive $0.06 to $0.08 to our earnings per share. In addition, we believe that over time, we can achieve additional synergies that will allow Allied to be even more accretive to our bottom line.I’d like to use this opportunity also to talk about another small acquisition, which is that Kirby has acquired 17 inland tank barges from Lyondell Chemical Company earlier this month. 17 barges consist of eight owned and nine charted or leased barges. Because we were already managing the fleet of barges and telling them the transaction is not expected to have a material impact on our earnings.
