Presentation

Operator

Good morning, and welcome to the SkyWest First Quarter 2010 Earnings Conference Call. All participants will be in listen-only mode. (Operator Instructions). After today's presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Please note that this event is being recorded.

I would like to turn the conference over to Bradford Rich, Executive Vice President and CFO. Please go ahead, sir.

Bradford Rich

Thank you, operator. Thank you to all of you for your interest this morning and for taking the time to join us. We got started just a couple of minutes late today as we noticed that we still had a lot of people trying to access the call just slightly after the hour. Before we get started today, I'd like to just introduce those who are with me today, and who will be participating on the call.

I have with me Chip Childs, the President and Chief Operating Officer of SkyWest Airlines. Brad Holt is also participating with us. Brad is the President and Chief Operating Officer of Atlantic Southeast Airlines. Michael Kraupp, our Vice President and Treasurer is also with us in participating this morning, that before we go any further I'll turn sometime to Mike to read our forward-looking statement.
