Thank you, Rob. Welcome to Extra Space Storage’s first quarter 2010 conference call. In addition to our press release we’ve also furnished unaudited supplemental financial information on our website. Please remember that managements’ prepared remarks and answers to your questions contain forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements address matters which are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ from those discussed today.
Examples of forward-looking statements include those related to Extra Space Storage’s development and acquisition programs, revenues and operating income, FFO and guidance. We encourage all of our listeners to review a more detailed discussion related to these forward-looking statements contained in the Company’s filings with the SEC. Forward-looking statements represent management’s estimates as of today, Tuesday, May 4, 2010.
