The activity level both among strategic buyers and private equity buyers is very very strong and to your point some of this has been driven by.

That's right Tracy most deals probably take six months on the inside.
To get completed.

And they wanna get money to work this year before they have to give -- -- the shareholders.
You mentioned oil and gas what about the pharma sector -- we've seen some big moves and then recently traditionally do know sort us about regional banks as a mean a lot of thought out there -- regional banks.

Well actually I think those both -- industries that we don't follow as closely we're seeing broad based strong activity.
I can't give a particular comment on you know those industries I'm afraid okay.
Alright very interest think for a slow -- and it goes as you mentioned that cliff talking about the tax implications and as you pointed out Tracy.
