Rich Hallworth

Good morning. Welcome to our Q1 2010 earnings conference call. A copy of our press release addressing our first quarter results can be found on our website, Before asking Mike Taylor to discuss our specific financial performance for the quarter and our financial position and guidance, I'd like to make a few remarks. My comments will be brief and succinct.

We had a great first quarter beating our internal expectations leading us to increase our full year guidance. Our contract portfolio is performing well. We did not experience any significant unexpected medical expenses or malpractice costs in this quarter.

Our balance sheet continues to be very strong with $41.5 million of cash on hand at the end of the quarter up from $37.7 million at December 31, 2009 and we still have no debt. Our day sales outstanding crept up slightly from 25 days at year end to 28 days at the end of Q1.
