Thank you, operator and good afternoon or good morning ladies and gentlemen. I am Spyros Capralos, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Starbulk Carriers and I would like to welcome you to the Starbulk Carriers second quarter and first half 2011 financial results conference call. Along with me today, to discuss our financial results is our CFO, George Syllantavos.
Before we begin, I kindly ask you to take a moment to read the Safe Harbor statement on slide number two of our presentation. Since you are quick readers, let us now turn to slide number three of the presentation to first discuss our balance sheet, which we like to highlight, because we believe is one of the healthiest in the drybulk industry.
