Before I turn the call over to Rich, I’d like to first mention some financial highlights. We reported non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.09 and 6 million in non-GAAP diluted net income. Revenues were 20.5 million for the quarter and our operating income was 10.9 million. We declared a year-end dividend of $0.15 per share in December 2010 in addition to the quarterly dividend of $0.03 per share declared last night. Our cash balance of 16.4 million at year-end. I’ll shed some light on our financial results in a few minutes but first I will turn the call over to Rich who discuss our review of the investing environment and how we are positioned relative to it.
Thanks Greg. Equity markets posted solid returns in the fourth quarter continuing a trend started in September as investors became more optimistic about prospects for a sustained global economic recovery. The MHCI all country world index was up 8.7% for the quarter contributing a significant portion of the index’s 12.7% return for 2010 marking a continued recovery from the deeply depressed valuations of 2009.
