SECRETARY: Who's calling, please?
MR. STOCK: This is Mr. Stock from Satre Ltd.

MR. STOCK: I'll wait, thank you.
SECRETARY: Hello, Mr. Stock. I'm sorry to have kept you waiting. I'm putting Mr. Baturin on the line now.
MR. BATURIN: Good morning, Mr. Stock.
MR. STOCK: Good morning, Mr. Baturin. I believe you know that the International Motor Show at Earls Court is due to open on Wednesday, October 18. We would greatly appreciate it if you could come to Earls Court to attend the official opening. The Lada 1200 Saloon from Satre Motors will make its debut at this show.
MR. BATURIN: Thank you very much for your kind invitation. But unfortunately I can't accept it. I have an appointment. I think Mr. Ozerov will be able to attend this function if you don't mind.
MR. STOCK: Oh, we will be happy to see Mr. Ozerov. We are sending a Complimentary Ticket for him by hand.
MR. BATURIN: I wish you every success in your business. The Lada is really creating a great deal of interest wherever it is shown. I sincerely hope that selling cars in this country will be very profitable for you.
MR. STOCK: Thank you for your kind wishes. Goodbye.
MR. BATURIN: Bye-bye, Mr. Stock.
