Good day, ladies and gentlemen. And welcome to the Fourth Quarter 2011 Furniture Brands Earnings Conference Call. My name is Lucy, and I’ll be your coordinator for today. At this time, all participants are in listen-only mode. We will facilitate a question-and-answer session towards the end of the presentation. (Operator Instructions)

As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes. I would now like to turn the presentation over to your host for today’s call Mr. Rick Isaak, Vice President and Controller. Please proceed.

Rick Isaak

Thank you. Good morning, everyone, and thanks for joining us today. Steve Rolls is in the room but due to strange vocal cords he is trying to avoid speaking, so I’ll read his prepared remarks. I want to take a moment to read the Safe Harbor statement before I go over the financial results of our fourth quarter and full year. Ralph Scozzafava, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer will then follow with a discussion of the highlights of the quarter and year.
