Hank J. Ratner

Thank you, Ari. Our company’s positive operating momentum continues in it‘s fiscal third quarter highlighted by an increasing total adjusted operating cash flow of 46%. Reflecting on our year-to-date performance despite a shortened 66 game regular season for the New York Knicks, a prolonged dispute with Time Warner Cable, and an off season shut down of the Madison Square Garden arena as part of the transformation project, we have generated over $200 million in total AOCF over the first nine months of our fiscal year of 23% year-over-year increase. Our ability to deliver this level of growth is a testament to the breadth and strength of our assets and brands and the value we provide to customers and partners.
