We believe that our efforts to stimulate sales, including sales incentives and marketing promotions have had a positive effect on the level of our new orders in the quarter. Further, we believe that the continued sequential quarterly improvement in new orders gives us confidence that we are recovering from the severe economic decline of the past two years and that consumers are feeling more comfortable proceeding with home improvement projects.”
