Thank you, Mitch and good morning to everyone. Before I call – I turn the call over to Pioneer CEO, Stacy Locke and to CFO, Lorne Phillips for their formal remarks; I have a few usual items to cover. First of all replay of today’s call will be available and accessible by webcast by going to the Investor Relations’ section of Pioneer’s website and also by telephone replay. You’ll find the details on how to access those replays in this morning’s news release.
Also as a reminder, information reported on this call speaks only as of today, November 3, 2011, so any time sensitive information may no longer be accurate at the time of the replay. Management may make forward-looking statements today that are based on beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to them.
