Thank you, Rachel. Good afternoon everyone and thanks for joining us. Today I will provide an update on the progress we continue to make on our strategy to be a leading cannabinoid based global consumer packaged good company with a portfolio of best-in-class brands supported by the multinational supply chain. In just a few moments Mark will review our third quarter 2019 financial results in some detail and discuss our long-term financial targets. But first I would like to provide some highlights. In the third quarter, our revenue increased 409% year-over-year to USD 51.1 million. And total kilogram equivalent sold nearly doubled sequentially to 10848 kilograms. With receipt of our first GMP certification for our Portugal facility revenue from international medical sales grew more than fivefold compared to the prior-year period. This is in line with the expectations we shared earlier this year that growth for our global businesses would accelerate in the second half of 2019 and into 2020.

While the cannabis industry is still in its early stages of development the global paradigm shift regarding the legalization and use of cannabis as medicine and mainstream consumer products continues to play out as anticipated. To capitalize on this opportunity we are prudently investing to build the global infrastructure required to drive long-term growth and shareholder value creation. Today our products are available in 20 countries
