Our backlog of $2.6 million at the end of Q1 positions us well for sequential growth. The PSV7000 has now received 4 industry awards during the last six months and was the largest contributor to the quarter's order growth, especially in Europe. We now have won PSV7000 system orders on 4 continents, indicating global appeal. We are winning deals in competitive situations in automotive, programming center, industrial and consumer markets worldwide.
