Looking ahead, we expect increased global capital expenditures and infrastructure investment, including the ramping up of the 4G telecom build-out, to help drive growth across our businesses. In addition, we believe that our High Performance Foams business will benefit from the positive spending trends in the industrial and consumer sectors, as well as from the expected seasonal third quarter demand increase for mobile electronics.
