We expect the economic environment will remain challenging and there to be no fundamental changes in the trends that we have seen recently in our businesses. We will continue to focus on performance improvements and operational efficiencies in order to benefit from our strong portfolio of businesses with many leading market positions and exposure to growth markets.
On February 20, 2013, we will present a strategy update. For more information, please consult our website.
