Presentation

Kristine Liwag

This is Kristine Liwag, I work with Ron Epstein at the Aerospace and Defense team here. And today we have Richard Koch. He has served as Director of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications of Crane since 2005. His background includes over 40 years of corporate experience and Investor Relations, Public Affairs, Business Planning and Engineering. Richard holds the B.S. in Civil Engineering from Bucknell and M.B.A from the University of Chicago.

So, without further ado, we have Richard here.

Richard Koch

Look at that door.

Kristine Liwag

Can we please close the door?

Richard Koch

Good morning. Thank you very much Kristine. It’s a pleasure to be here. Eric Fast, our CEO; and Andrew Krawitt, our Co-CFO unfortunately were not able to attend today. But I’m happy to share with you the Crane story.

There are number of faces to me in audience and so, I just spoke with Kristine, we are going to modify the format just a little bit here. There is a handout package that hopefully you’d been able to pick up, there are few extra copies of the handout package that are on this table that floor rows back, so but there are many more handouts that out in the main resource area.

So in any case, we want to call your attention to the forward-looking statements disclaimer. And again, since many people here that I don’t know, I’m assuming that you may not know Crane all that well. So just kind of give you a company overview before getting into the individual segments.
