We generated adjusted EBITDA of $158 million in the quarter, consistent with the second quarter 2019.

And this was the first ever green bond in the maritime sector in the Western Hemisphere. In May, the Partnership received an unsolicited non-binding proposal for Brookfield to acquire all common units, they do not already own. On October 1 the Partnership entered into an agreement and
