Dr. Grodman completed his comments by stating: "Last year we continued our guidance, which has been consistent for quite some time. We still believe that we will increase net revenues by greater than 15%. We continue to estimate that we will grow net income by around 20%. The only proviso to that is we still have not accounted for the full impact of Hurricane Sandy. We will remain focused on our future growth and performance and providing the best results for our shareholders, physician clients and the patients they serve."
