Good morning, everyone. Welcome to our first quarter conference call. My name is Mike Snyder and I am the Director of Investor Relations for Koppers.

At this time, each of you should have received a copy of our press release. If you haven’t, one is available on our website or else you can call Rose Salinsky at 412-227-2444 and we can either fax or e-mail you a copy.

Before we get started, I’d like to remind all of you that certain comments made during this conference call maybe characterized as forward-looking under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements maybe affected by certain risks and uncertainties, including risks described in the company’s filings with the SEC.

In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking statements included in the company’s comments, you should not regard the inclusion of such information as a representation that its objectives, plans, and projected results will be achieved. The company’s actual results could differ materially from such forward-looking statements.
