Thank you, David and good afternoon everyone. Well, we have completed another tough year in this unprecedented downturn of our times. The company reported 2010 annual revenue of $441.6 million, adjusted annual earnings per share of $0.03 and annual cash flow from operations amounted to $53.9 million.Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $105 million. We recorded a fourth quarter loss in adjusted earnings per share of $0.03, and cash from operations for the quarter was $15.9 million. While our results may not have met our expectations on all fronts, given the difficult circumstances, I’m proud of our performance. If you recall, earlier last year we expected 2010 to be a year of recovery. Although we did feel that the first half of the year was likely to be weak, we certainly expected the markets to begin to recover during the second half. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The second half of the year turned out to be much lighter from a revenue perspective. The only consolation was the fact that the daily sales were stabilizing month-over-month. What was conspicuously absent were new projects, which are a primary driver of strong sales and healthy profit margins.
