DOE provided the initial $87.7 million of funding by accepting title to quantities of depleted uranium that enabled us to release encumbered funds. We received $55.6 million of the cash in the third quarter of 2012 as the surety bonds and related cash deposits providing the financial assurance for disposition of this depleted uranium were reduced. We expect to receive the remainder in the fourth quarter of 2012.Under the terms of the RD&D program, we have begun manufacturing and operating additional AC100 machines and expect to complete and operate a 120-machine cascade in a commercial plant configuration in 2013. As of September 30, 2012, we had approximately 80 machines built and conditioned with uranium gas, and we continue to build new AC100 machines for the RD&D program’s demonstration cascade of commercial centrifuge machines and supporting infrastructure. We have begun installing service modules and other control equipment to support the RD&D commercial cascade.
