Our results and our actions clearly demonstrate our commitment to increasing share owner value. We continue to create value through increased dividends instituting a 23% increase earlier this year with a three-year compounded annual dividend growth of 22%. In addition, in 2011 we completed a $1 billion share repurchase program which started in late 2010 and this year, we then began a second $1 billion share repurchase program with a goal of at least $600 million in repurchases by the end of 2012.Through these initiatives as well as the cash distribution from the 2010 transaction, we will have returned at least $5.5 billion to share owners by the end of 2012 which clearly demonstrates our focus on driving share owner value. At the core of this growth is a focused approach to our business. For more than five years, our work has been guided by a single global operating framework which creates a clear vision, clear priorities and clear financial objectives.
