While there was a dispute still ongoing between us and Namecheap as to the method of them leaving, there was never any expectation that Namecheap will be part of the ongoing business that we bought. We expected they would have left much earlier, and most importantly, all expectations we set around contributions of the Enom business assumed them to be leaving expeditiously. There were absolutely no surprises here ..."
