And those two elements are rare to find in biopharmaceutical companies, particularly of our current size. So on the financial here and now, we have assembled based on our technologies, which are, I think fairly easily understood, now they are quite advanced.
We have a pipeline or portfolio of five major commercial products and these are commercial products approved in markets around the world. Five products that are almost all of them early in their commercial life with long patent protection, patent protections 20s for the most part.

So the probability we think of our being able to build more products is quite high. The difference between the next-generation of products and the first generation of products, is that the first generation of products were essentially done under a partnering model, where we used big pharmas money and resources, and development expertise to help us build our capabilities and generate cash flows from royalties and manufacturing products. This next wave of products, our proprietary products that comprise the pipeline take that learning and that understanding the technology and apply to drug for Elan account. This is not a new story.
