Thank you Megan, and welcome, everyone, to GulfMark Offshore’s second quarter earnings conference call. Today we won’t deviate from our standard practice. Quintin Kneen will give us an overview of the financial performance for the last three months and, following that, Bruce Streeter will give us an operations overview and hopefully lift the fog that’s been settled over the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the unfortunate incident a few months back.
