Is there any seasonality in terms of the renewals or is it fairly inconsistent throughout the year?

We've got a couple of large contracts that will have an impact for the year, but typically beginning of January, January beginning of our fiscal year, you'll see a little bit more renewables in the January-February time frame. And with -- annual, they drop off throughout the year. So there's a little bit of that seasonality that you'll see.
