Thanks Paul. Well once again thanks for joining. We're pleased to be with you this morning to discuss our third quarter results. Coming to the year we communicated our expectations that 2019 will be a strong year and that's certainly been the case through the first 3 quarters. We're building our momentum and we're confident that fourth quarter will put an exclamation point on milestone year for provision. As you saw in the release we're again raising guidance. There are a variety of factors powering our performance some external but many of which are in our control and we believe sustainable. Obviously there's some benefit from a macro wins in our back. And of course there's a long-term force of digital transformation at play something in our view is a permanent reality now for enterprises not a trend or anything cyclical.
The new normal to thrive in many instances survive is a state of confident level. However we're confident that we're well positioned to outperform in any market environment because of the DNA of our firm the strategic decisions we've made in recent years and the investments we're continuing to make now. At our core forward flexible fluid and evolving always balancing our focus on what's now and what's next. A great example of that is our ability to do business which is now approaching $100 million business that practice didn't even exist a few years ago and
