    • Improved sales velocity is definitely good. Deliveries might be running a bit slow, but that's something the company has more control over. The 9M cash flow figure is very encouranging. The quarterly cash flow number is a lot lower than previous quarters, but the company obviously anticipated this in their guidance. I believe 4Q and 1Q are generally the strongest in Brazil.
