Thank you, operator. Good morning, everyone, and thanks for joining us today. I’ll take a moment to read the Safe Harbor statement before I go over the financial results for our third quarter. Ralph Scozzafava, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer will then follow with a discussion of the highlights of the quarter.
