A short time ago we announced an exciting merger with RedPrairie, a leader in supply chain execution and workforce management solutions.  Our companies’ combined solution breadth, commitment to innovation and world-class associate base will allow us to deliver differentiated solutions that enable our customers to achieve a greater command of commerce from raw materials to finished product and into the hands of consumers through any channel.  We expect this transaction to close by the end of 2012, following customary approvals.
