The Breeze M has completed its 3rd and 4th burns, and the additional propellant fuel tank has been jettisoned. The vehicle is now in a five-hour coasting period. The 5th, and final, burn will occur at the end of this period. The 5th burn will last about 7 minutes, and about 15 minutes after that we will have separation of the Ciel II spacecraft. We'll let you know the mission is complete the moment we have confirmation.
