Alongside our strong performance in the first half of 2015, we are progressing our transformation to becoming a leading global biotech company and are confident in delivering on our 10x20 ambitions. During the second quarter, we delivered 7% product sales growth on a reported basis and 12% on a Non GAAP CER basis, in both cases excluding INTUNIV. This is a solid performance, achieved amid continued investment in future innovation and growth drivers. I am especially pleased with the performance of VYVANSE both in the adult ADHD market and with the launch of the new adult indication for moderate to severe Binge Eating Disorder. The early performance of the products we gained from NPS underscores our ability to acquire and integrate assets and deliver value. Given our first half performance and confidence in the underlying business, we are increasing our full-year earnings guidance, and now expect Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS growth to be in the mid-to-high single digit percent range for 2015. Additionally, we expect to meet our 10x20 target of $6.5 billion of product sales in 2016, and exceed it with the contribution from our recent acquisition of NPS.
