Robert E. Bowers

Thank you, operator. Good morning everyone and welcome to Piedmont's second quarter 2011 conference call. Last night, in addition to posting our earnings release, we also filed our quarterly Form 10-Q and a Form 8-K including our unaudited quarterly supplemental information. This information is also available for your review on our website at www.piedmontreit.com under the Investor Relations section.

On today’s call, the company’s prepared remarks and answers to your questions will contain forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements address matters, which are subject to risk and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ from those discussed today. Examples of forward-looking statements include those related to Piedmont Office Realty Trust revenues, operating income, financial guidance, as well as leasing and acquisition activity. You should not place any undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements and those statements speak only as of the date they are made.
