Thank you, Aldis.
And I agree with you. We're very proud of having delivered another record year of earnings, representing 18.1% growth over the prior year's earnings per share. More important, we believe this was accomplished while maintaining a low risk profile and while remaining intensely focused on earning the full banking relationship of our clients.
