Hi, good early early morning, Rob. I simply desired to return to margin. Again, i understand you have talked a great deal as we look at just the accretion income piece and I’m thinking about reported margin about it, but directionally. I recently like to be sure that We have this right apples-to-apples, because accretion earnings ended up being therefore big this quarter. Therefore if we are taking a look at it moving forward. Your reported margin just maintaining in accordance with your responses on your own core margin, you reported margin most likely will probably monitor for the reason that the 3.45%. Therefore like high 3.40%s, 3.48%, 3.49% range, have always been we doing that the right method?

Had been here any one-time things that drove those greater?

Robert Michael GormanExecutive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Not necessarily, apart from — therefore the advertising uptick, we had some credits when you look at the 3rd quarter, which didn’t recur within the 4th quarter. And so the quarter that is fourth a bit more of a run price basis for marketing. With regards to technology and processing, we are just starting to look at effect of some of the initiatives we applied throughout the 12 months. For example Zelle adds to processing expenses, etc. Generally there is an uptick linked to some of these items which began to come through when you look at the 4th quarter. While the other product, which one ended up being that? Which was — expert costs.

So when we gauge the franchise, and I also’ll ask Shawn O’Brien, Head of Consumer Banking, to comment. We think we could reproduce that model, end up getting better found fewer branches in metropolitan areas and lower our cost run rate. Shawn, we do not would like to get into too detail that is much any viewpoint you are able to share on that?

Shawn E. O’BrienExecutive Vice President and Customer Banking Group Executive

Yes, all I would include is the fact that through purchase, we now have some branches that are not super in line with our brand name and definitely not within the shape that is best. So we’d want to get a bit less of the thick franchise footprint. And i do believe we could do this most likely if you take 14 — 12, 14 branches in the long run and consolidating them into seven more recent branches. To ensure that’s sort of that which we’re trying to do, but that is a little bit of a play that is long-term we build down those new branches.
