We are continuing with the installation process of our major technology infrastructure project and look forward to the increased operating efficiencies that it will bring along with anticipated higher revenues as it will provide expanded service offerings to existing and new customers for many years to come. Even in this time of economic uncertainty, we remain confident in our ability to continue to grow and improve profitability. Our proactive approach to daily operations and cost controls, will serve to minimize any potential negative effects of the current economic climate.
