I would now like to turn the call over to your host for today, Mr. Bruce Burns, Director, Investor Relations. Please proceed.
Good morning. I am Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations for Westar Energy. Welcome to our third quarter conference call.
Last night, we filed our 10-Q and posted it along with the earnings release and supplemental materials on our website at westarenergy.com. They can be found under Supplemental Materials within in the Investors Section.
Some of our remarks will be forward looking. So I remind you of uncertainties inherent in our comments during this call or that we may have included in materials that supplement release.
Making remarks this morning are Tony Somma, CFO; and Mark Ruelle, CEO. We also have a number of our senior management team with us to answer questions. We appreciate that today’s calendar is full and we’ll have the opportunity to visit with many of you next week. So we’ll keep our comments brief.
