Our growth was increasingly diversified geographically with 31% of our new policies coming from outside the State of Florida. We are now actively writing in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, have been approved to write business in Texas, New Jersey and New Hampshire, and have applications pending in Georgia, Connecticut, New York, and Maine. Our total policies in-force at the end of the quarter was 168,075.
