Kevin Berryman

So then, can let you and take me any Bob, commentary… it, add

Bob Pragada


Kevin Berryman

… would you like if to.

Bob Pragada


Kevin Berryman

and in period the what and than are a our associated We the the been with few numbers we where in to of this get not QX QX in by more QX growth the QX be are that’s likely a time aren’t little into more quarters. be the QX over and we QX an we going of in solid bit that is going event. acceleration more and Maybe really have impacted but benefits to Having and do seeing yet excited our QX Look, stimulus. primarily incremental forward we believe that last I all is going QX said we that. would so that, about expect stimulus believe
