Gary L. Cavey

Thank you, Rob good morning everybody. We appreciate you joining us. Earlier today, Ballantyne Strong reported our all time most profitable quarter on a significant net revenues increase year-over-year.

Projection Equipment in cinema services achieved very strong quarterly growth comparisons. Ballantyne’s Digital Products business led the way with a very large increase in net revenues and digital cinema services sales doubled year-over-year.

The cinema screen business posted lower net revenues versus 2010 Q3, but the strong projection system and service business sales more than made up for the short fall. Mary will fill you in with more specifics and color on our financials following the conclusion of my opening remarks.

One of the keys to BTNs record Q3 performance was our participation in the Marcus Theatres, digital cinema retrofit. As a long time cinema supplier of theirs, we were pleased to have once again been selected to a system.

Our cinema service team helped orchestrate the rollout and among other things provided them with top of the line in using digital projectors. We are very proud that our crew completed more than 550 installs in just 45 days on their behalf. It is our firm belief that Ballantyne is the only organization they could have accomplished such a big project in such a short timeframe.
