Marty tell us about your sale.
Horton Outdoor (the company which bought our assets) owns a billboard plant in Northwest Georgia. Horton is owned by McWhorter Capital Partners a Cartersville, Georgia holding company. Horton is relatively new to the industry having acquired a local company in Cartersville last fall and then recently also picked up the assets of OMG Media which operated in North Atlanta and North Georgia. The purchase of our signs expands their coverage in North Georgia and gives them Digital coverage (for the first time) in Birmingham and Panama City. I think we will see continued growth from Horton.
