Welcome to the Amerigon Incorporated 2010 second quarter and six months results conference call. During today’s presentation all parties will be in a listen-only mode. Following the presentation the conference will be opened for questions. (Operator instructions) I would now like to turn the conference over to Jill Bertotti of Allen & Caron. Please go ahead.
Good morning and thank you everyone for joining us today for the Amerigon Incorporated second quarter and six month results conference call. Before we start this morning’s call there are a few items I would like to cover with you. First, in addition to disseminating through peer newswire this morning’s news release announcing Amerigon’s results, an email copy of the release was also sent to a number of conference call participants. If any of you need a copy of the news release, you may download a copy from either the Amerigon website, at www.amerigon.com, or the Allen & Caron website, at www.allencaron.com. Additionally, a replay of this conference call will be available via a link provided on the events page of the Investors section of Amerigon’s website.
Finally, I have been asked to make the following statements. Certain matters discussed on this conference call are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties and our actual results may be different. Important factors that could cause the company’s actual results to differ materially from its expectations on this call are risks that sales may not significantly increase; additional financing, if necessary may not be available; new competitors may arise; and adverse conditions in the automotive industry may negatively affect its results. The liquidity and trading price of its common stock may be negatively affected by these and other factors. Please also refer to Amerigon’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including but not limited to its Form 10-Q for the period ending June 30, 2010 and its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009.
