Christopher Martin

Thank you. Good morning, everyone. Before we discuss our second quarter 2010 results, we ask that you please review our standard cautions as to any forward-looking statements that may be made during today’s review of our financial performance.

A full disclosure and disclaimer can be found in the text of our earnings release and you may also obtain a copy of that and all of our SEC filings by accessing our Web site or by calling our Investor Relations Department at 201 915 5344.

For today’s discussion, I am joined by Tom Lyons, our CFO.

Our earnings of $12.9 million or $0.23 a share represent an improvement of more than double of the same quarter last year. And actually, we are pleased with these results as our net interest income before the loan loss provision increased $9 million from the same quarter last year.
