And in particular, does it change the conversation? Well, we did. Q4 combined sales for these business were up 10%. Thank you. The Americas and Europe each had modest declines of 1% while Asia, Middle East and Africa was more challenged at down 13%. We see strong orders going into the next few months and sales following right along. Turning to Slide 15. We would like to add more -- again, help us diversify into the hybrid space. So, all the big oil and gas customers right now are engaging pretty heavy with Stuart Harris and Lal's business profile on digitalization and how they're going to try to reduce their carbon use. We now expect this business platform will turn positive to sales growth earlier than previously expected. Thank you very much. Good day, ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by. I think all-time record is probably around 15.5%, 15.6%. It's more of a technology business and we're -- that's our strength. But overall, I think we've done a nice job, maybe better than the competitors on the operations side and we're being asked to fill some holes. Got you. We presented to the Board, we didn't -- we haven't talked to you this time but we'll update you. You could not afford Jackson, Wyoming. It's not all about margins, it's about how we reset the businesses for the next generation. Yeah. Anything in the mix that's negative that would be kind of holding you guys back from converting whatever little kind of revenue you get on top of some of these tailwinds? It's always fun to run Emerson. But, I mean, obviously, strong conversion in Q4.

I mean, if I was your boss, you wouldn't have a job. So Jamie has the biggest restocking going on, because his customer base liquidated inventory when we're in the COVID, demand came up and now he's behind the curve. But I think what you're going to see, we'll continue to serve this industry, at the same time, we continue to invest in other technologies. We are excited to welcome OSI Inc., to the Emerson family, a leading provider of software-based technology for advanced grid management. By the time you catch up to the demand we're seeing right now and you get caught up, all of the sudden you hit peak season and it could keep running. We've been doing some software acquisitions, not many hardware at this point in time. That's fantastic. We have profitable business growing right now. As previously highlighted, Q4 cash flow performance was strong given the challenging environment. Flex shaft and pipe inspection enhancements in technology will increase our customers' productivity and provide features such as the combined cleaning camera visibility and the ability to see the pipe pitch during inspection. 2020 Q4 Compliance Compilation.

Business continuity, serving our customers in critical industries, disciplined cost control and positioning to outperform as we emerge from COVID-19 remain our key thematic priorities. And we always were lagged them a little bit. So, this is -- we thought last year was a lot of fun, this one got a higher degree of difficulty for the operating people, because they're going to try to figure out how not to put a lot of working capital on, but they're going to have to put some on, because our receivables are growing, our inventory will be growing a little bit. As usual, I encourage everyone to follow along in the slide presentation, which is available on our website. If you recall, we had talked about back in August at 40% level of manpower presence, that's moved now into the mid 70s through October, that's very encouraging as it will be a sign of moving from an environment of break fix into further KOB2 and KOB3 activity.
