We ended 2010 with $10.2 million of positive free cash flow and will continue to focus on margin expansion and redirecting our capital program toward growth initiatives. On February 28, we closed the acquisition of Arbinet, adding significant scale to our International Carrier Services group. Also in February, we launched an exchange offer for our outstanding 13.00% and 14.25% notes that extends until March 23.

During 2011, we will continue to focus on improving operations and leveraging our asset portfolio to strengthen our positioning in our markets and increase the return we generate for shareholders.”
