We began the year celebrating our 125th Anniversary, a milestone few companies are able to attain. In the first quarter we announced an agreement to acquire of Flatbush Federal Savings and Loan Association, and completed the transaction in the fourth quarter adding three branches to our expanding Brooklyn network. Northfield also adopted a plan of conversion, setting in motion a strategic decision to become a fully public company and move away from the mutual holding company format, and I'm pleased that the strong participation of our depositors and the community resulted in a successful stock offering that closed today."
