Good morning and welcome to the Penson Worldwide conference call. Before we begin, I would like to read Penson’s safe harbor statement. Please note that this presentation contains certain forward-looking statements about management’s goals, plans, and expectations which are subject to various risks and uncertainties outlined in the risk factors section of Penson’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated and we disclaim any obligation to update information disclosed in this call as a result of developments which occur afterwards. At this time, all participants have been placed on a listen-only mode and the floor will open for questions and comments following the presentation.
