Average selling prices increased on a sequential basis within our largest businesses, and our capacity utilization rates are improving on a seasonally adjusted basis. This past November, we announced our expectation to achieve adjusted EBITDA of $1.325 billion within the next two to three years. Given current improving global economic trends, I continue to be confident that we can achieve these earnings.”
