We continue to be the market leader in health system supply chains in North America. Our year-to-date revenue and profitability are ahead of last year by 14% and 21% respectively. Our license fee sales are up 26% for the quarter and 70% year-to-date. Over the past year we have grown our human capital infrastructure substantially to respond to our growing demand for services. We have added 85 people and ramped up our expenses by $1.1M compared to Q3 of last year. Most of this was done over the summer and fall. It takes some time for this additional expense to generate revenue. Our strong balance sheet has allowed us to make this aggressive move. The opportunities ahead with our sales pipeline and prospecting business initiatives are both solid and continuing to rise. According to the leading industry analysts firm, the supply chain management industry outlook is positive and is expected to remain prosperous in 2013."
