Thank you, Keith. Good morning and welcome to our third quarter earnings call. Our earnings release was issued earlier this morning, and is also available on our website for your review. As a reminder, some of the things that will be said this morning contain forward-looking statements, they are based on management's assumptions, which may or may not come true and you should refer to the language at the end of the press release for the appropriate cautionary statements and also our SEC filings for additional information. We expect to file our 10-Q later today. This teleconference is being recorded as noted and will be available on our website later today as well.
