Hello and welcome to the Capital Trust first quarter 2010 results conference call. Before we begin, please be advised that the forward-looking statements contained in this news release are subject to certain risk and uncertainties, including but not limited to the success of the company's debt restructuring; the continued credit performance of the company's loan in CMBS investments; its asset liability mix; the effectiveness of the company's hedging strategy; the rate of repayment of the company's portfolio assets; and the impact of these events on the company's cash flow; as well as other risks indicated from time to time in the company's Forms 10-K and Form 10-Q filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company assumes no obligation to update or supplement forward-looking statements that become untrue because of subsequent events or circumstances. There will be a Q&A session following the conclusion of today's presentation. At that time, I will provide instructions for submitting a question to management.
I will now turn the call over to Mr. Steve Plavin, CEO of Capital Trust. Please go ahead.
Thank you. Good morning, everyone. Thank you for joining us and for your interest in Capital Trust. With me are Geoff Jervis, our Chief Financial Officer and Tom Ruffing, our Chief Credit officer and Head of Asset Management.
Last night we reported our results for the first quarter and filed our 10-Q. CT reported a net loss of $63.5 million or $2.84 per share. The losses were largely the result of loan loss provisions and impairments totaling $72 million. Geoff will run you through the detailed numbers, but weak property level performance was the primary driver behind the increase in provisions and impairments.
