Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Portland General Electric Company’s Second Quarter 2011 Earnings Results Conference Call. Today is Friday, August 5th, 2011.

For opening remarks, I would like to turn the conference call over to Portland General Electric’s Director of Investor Relations, Mr. Bill Valach. Please go ahead, sir.
