More than four months ago I became CEO and have gotten to know the Company on a deeper level. I can say without hesitation, I’m even more impressed by the strength of our management team, the quality of our products and the outlook for OraSure. I will continue to advance innovation here at the Company because I believe that it is crucial to our continued growth. I intend to do this by prioritizing efforts to foster a culture that empowers our management team to innovate and then rewards them for their success. I am confident that we have the right strategy in place and the other necessary pieces to take the Company to the next level.
With that, we will now take your questions. Operator, please proceed.
