Throughout this journey, operating margin has improved as we ramp-up new and existing programs, and leverage our recent facility expansions in Thailand and Mexico. While the macro environment remains challenging, we are forecasting a solid finish in the fourth quarter, and we are updating our outlook for fiscal year 2023, with sales expected at the high-end and adjusted operating margin in the mid-to-low end of our guidance range. We also have been updating our Strategic Plan, which includes  review of the positioning, and growth opportunities, within the vertical markets we support. The learnings from this review are encouraging and the path to $2 billion in annual revenue is within our sights. After a fast-paced onboarding, I’m even more excited about our future.”
