Good afternoon everyone, congratulations on the results. First question on David, of third quarter, quite strong number. Assuming that fourth quarter seasonally results -- are seasonally strong, is it factors in that it's a lot of upside for the second half in terms of compared to your guidance or are you expecting anything different in the fourth quarter in terms of seasonality? And second question on CapEx, correct me if I'm wrong, but I did a calculation here I saw an 80 million expenditure in (ph) PP&E pleasant tangibles and it's substantially higher than what you had spent -- spend in the second, in the first half. So, could you please. No, if it's correct.

Okay. But that's within the range of expectations.

The second question about CapEx, just to consider please that the acquisition of ITPAC, since it does not have an operation. It's, considered as we are buying intangibles. So if you exclude that, because that's not organic CapEx, our organic CapEx then is pretty much where it should be. Okay?

Analyst
Thiago A. Bortoluci

Yes, hi, Good afternoon, everyone. Thanks for the question. First, I would like to explore a little bit more thing on the guidance given that as Luciano mentioned, seasonality should be stronger in the first quarter as expected I stood at 73% of the high-end guidance for revenues is already delivered 72% of the high-end for adjusted EBITDA shouldn't be there any space or upside revisions to the guidance or at least to the need -- to the average of the guidance given where
