Welcome to the first quarter results conference for Vitran. I will pass the call over to Vitran’s CEO, Richard Gaetz. Mr. Gaetz, go ahead.
Thank you. Good morning everybody and welcome to Vitran’s first quarter 2010 conference call. I am joined as always today by Sean Washchuk, Vitran’s Chief Financial Officer. I am sure by now you have all read the press release from late yesterday afternoon regarding the results of our most recent quarter.
Although we are clearly not where we want to be, the quarter was one of progress and improvement in many areas which I will expand on in a few minutes. Before I talk about the first quarter numbers and some of the corresponding comments I would like Sean to read the Safe Harbor clause and give you a brief overview of the first quarter.
Thank you Rick. This call contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and applicable Canadian securities laws.
