It already some of the things the analysts. -- I think they have very much understood what we're doing. And that's the good that's always a challenge can you explain this event. They see Olivia and we want to be Americans and as well and because we don't wanna set expectations at all. So if you live technique. The expectations smashing. Do they understand the benefits and the progress and challenges yet so it's not as anybody walk in the car. We UPC -- quit. But more business I also got this morning is that yes.

We're not done yet to -- and it never does it stay at company with TC US. We've had that model for many many years anything if you stay at least I think it's has been very successful for us and it shows a little bit of a -- You know we team up. We have various competencies in the room and is not about one individualism. Successfully. You -- works for us that pretty much right. The -- for different companies. In my mind I was that I didn't get abuse and and for me -- -- right back to us that's gravity was -- royalty. I've always said that. I need to be. Clearly adding that -- his that you.
