Our primary sources of liquidity are cash and cash equivalents, funds from operations and borrowings under our credit facilities. We currently have a U.S. credit agreement for a $10 million revolving credit facility and a $10 million uncommitted facility with no outstanding borrowings and have foreign credit facilities with borrowing capacities of approximately $51 million of which approximately $0.4 million has been borrowed and $3.3 million has been used for import and export guarantees. Our primary liquidity requirements have been to meet our inventory and capital expenditure needs and to fund on-going operations. At December 31, 2009 and March 31, 2010, our working capital was $354.3 million and $359.5 million, respectively. Our working capital increased in the first three months of 2010 primarily due to the increase in cash, accounts receivables and inventories, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities. We expect cash generated by our U.S. and international operations, together with existing cash, cash equivalents and available credit facilities, to be sufficient to cover cash needs for working capital and capital expenditures for at least the next 12 months. Cash and cash equivalents, the conversion of other working-capital items and borrowings are expected to be sufficient to fund on-going operations.
