    I’d, now, like to turn the call over to Ron Chan, Chairman and CEO of ChinaCast Education Corporation.

    Ron Chan:
    Thank you and good morning to those of you listening from North America and good evening to those participating in the call from Asia.

    I’m pleased to report a strong quarter for the year with a solid quarter of revenue growth and improved profitability which Tony will highlight for you later. The investments we have made in our business are yielding solid improvements in all of our financial operating metrics and we expect this momentum to accelerate with our recently announced MOU to acquire an additional accredited university in China.
    We are targeting to close within the third quarter of the year which will further extend our degree offerings and drive future earnings growth. As in the USA and other countries, we continue to see healthy growth in the higher education sector in China as students continue to improve their job skills to compete in a tight labor market.
