Good morning, my name is Lisa and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to FalCor’s second quarter earnings conference call.
(Operator instructions) Mr. Steve Schafer, you may begin your conference.
Thank you and good morning to everyone. With me this morning are Rick Smith, President and CEO; and Andy Welch, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. They will address the current operating environment, results for the quarter, and our outlook. Following their remarks, we will take your questions.
Before I turn the call over to Rick, let me remind you that with the exception of historical information, the matters discussed on this conference call may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Federal Securities laws. Forward-looking statements are expressions of current expectations and are not guarantees of future performance. Numerous risks and uncertainties in the occurrence of future events may cause actual results to differ materially from those currently expected. These risks and uncertainties are described in FelCor’s filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we believe our current expectations to be based upon reasonable assumptions, we cannot assure you that our expectations will be attained or that actual results will not differ materially.
