Thank you so much, Randy. We are thrilled to have you join the AMN family and to help us continue to evolve our strategy down and our dialogue with investors and the analyst community. As we nearly end of what has certainly than an eventful year AMN healthcare recorded a solid performance in the third quarter and most importantly delivered significant value to our clients. Our revenue of $494 million with 5% higher year-over-year led by strength in Travel Nurse, Allied, and our MSP and VMS offerings. The quarter also included a return to year-over-year revenue growth for our Locum Tenens segment. Our adjusted EBITDA was $62 million and represented a margin of 12.5%.

The overall environment for our business remains positive and the macro trends enabled growth across all of our segments. We continue to evolve our business model to improve the company's sustainable growth rate and our profit margin. Even while improving our operating leverage, we are investing back into the business to future growth. These factors are keeping us on track to achieve our goal of a 14% adjusted EBITDA margin by 2020. Looking forward our fourth quarter guidance reflects typical seasonal performance across all three segments. This should enable AMN to deliver year-over-year revenue growth that
