Thank you. For the second quarter of 2010 we reported revenues of $19.4 million, operating income of $10 million, non-GAAP diluted net income of $5.0 million and non-GAAP diluted net income per share of $0.08. During the quarter we repaid remainder of our outstanding senior subordinated notes leaving us debt free. We also declared a quarterly dividend of $0.03 per share.
I’ll review our financial results in greater detail in a few minutes. First, I’d like to turn the call over to Rich Pzena, who will discuss our view of the investing environment and how we’re positioned relative to it.Rich Pzena Thanks Greg.

Investors around the world became obsessed by headlines of European debt and currency crisis, economic slowdown and new financial regulations.
