I need you to break out Europe right now because there's an opportunity there although there is weakness in the macro picture tell me what -- seeing in.
In what it comes to what's happening in Europe.
You know we had a very strong year in Europe in 20121.
Of the strongest growth years we've had a very long time grew well over 50% in Europe.
And that strength really extended across the year every quarter in 2012 was very strong in Europe so while others offer companies.
We're struggling Europe while they were blaming you know the results and they lack of -- analysts' expectations on poor performance in Europe.
We exceeded our numbers every quarter in Europe in 2012.

At levels that are much lower than our -- -- how earlier about a 15% of the price you're really comes down the whole -- we reach our customers using the Internet.
We think about the -- the way Amazon thinks about the -- We use a model we call selling from the inside.
Our sales guys -- -- in various -- -- offices around the world we don't get on airplanes and fly around to see customers.

You know we -- our our acquisition strategy shopping with the intent to buy.
I don't like to the mall to shop modular -- the binds our -- -- a strategy is to look for technologies.
That fit our model technologies that we can immediately slip in our go to market model.
We can -- our inside sales teams around the world and they literally can start selling those products on -- one after we close the acquisition.
Most deals we've done have been relatively small but it added -- technology our portfolio.
Greatly expanded the number probably -- Albright -- pros which allows us to capture them and bring them to our website.
Three to sell more more product -- we in fact have an eleven billion dollar market opportunity.
Just inside our own install -- -- -- which is pretty impressive that I am.
I am what you look at that price point it's definitely a deal were watching this company and the stock up 53%.
Year for your Kevin thank you very much good luck to -- -- -- Any time solar -- CEO and president disruptive technologies -- doing the same thing but in a different way we will be.
