We have provided our initial earnings guidance for 2012 which is impacted by the deactivation of our California contracts, additional start-up and staffing expenses for our GEOAmey project as a result of incumbent employee laws in the United Kingdom, and approximately $0.15 per share in carrying costs for our idle facilities. Notwithstanding these factors, we have issued strong Adjusted Funds from Operations guidance for 2012 of $3.18 to $3.34 per share, which is indicative of what we believe is the strength of our core operations and cash flows.
