Thank you Christine and good afternoon everyone. My name is Brian Smith, Direct of Investor Relations for ESI. With me today are Nick Konidaris our CEO and Paul Oldham, our Chief Financial Officer. This conference call will cover our fiscal 2011 first quarter results.

These statements are subject to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
