I want to try to cover the fundamentally, the fundamentals of the business, how that’s trending. Certainly, touch on our particular unique platform and the position that we have in it. So, we’ll touch on our debt maturities balance sheet and where we are there as well as the very actionable growth opportunities that we have.
