After our initial conversations, Mark was looking for a longer-term deal, and he went out and he reviewed the market, he and his reps, and then they came back to us and we were able to make a deal. They started indicating that they were really interested last weekend, so we’ve been working on it since last Sunday. It came together in the last couple of days."
