What went into the decision to shut down the Russia and Belarus business?
As you know, we suspended sales and shipments in Russia and Belarus [in February]. We decided to wait 90 days to see if there was some sort of resolution to the conflict. We totally condemned the Russia invasion. Unfortunately, there is no resolution in sight, and it is no longer tenable for us to maintain our operations there.
So we have decided to announce the exit and manage it in an orderly fashion over the next several months.
We are going to treat people with respect, as we normally do.
