Good morning everyone, and welcome to the Approach Resources first quarter 2010 earnings conference call and audio webcast. (Operator Instructions)
Management's remarks today will include forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to many factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from management's expectations as expressed in those forward-looking statements. Those factors are described in the company's SEC filings, and management refers you to the company's website or to the SEC website to review those filings.
The company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements. Also, during this call, management will refer to certain non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are contained in the company's first quarter 2010 earnings release, and under the non-GAAP financial information page of the company's website at www.approachresources.com.
I'm now going to turn the call over to Mr. Ross Craft, the company's President and CEO.
