I am happy to share that our engineering business including tools and equipment and automotive components is poised for future growth. We are consolidating the business to explore all the options available to us for monetization, which will allow deleveraging leading to value creation. In addition, our Realty activity has demonstrated performance since its inception and in order to realize its full potential, it will now be a wholly owned subsidiary of Raymond Limitée. We continue to focus on our B2C business by providing operational efficiencies and synergies to strengthen our Lifestyle business.
