Total inbound orders were $1.5 billion and included $850 million in Subsea Technologies orders.  Subsea Technologies backlog was $6.3 billion.

"In Surface Technologies, we are more optimistic with regard to the North American market, as we delivered another strong quarter of operating results in our fluid control business.  Based on this improved outlook, we are increasing our diluted earnings per share guidance to $2.70 to $2.80."
