Good afternoon and thank you for joining us to discuss Collectors Universe’s financial results for the second quarter ended December 31st, 2011. With us today from management are Michael McConnell, Chief Executive Officer and Joe Wallace, Chief Financial Officer. The management will provide a brief overview of the quarter and then open up the call to your questions.
Comments made during today’s call may contain statements regarding the company’s expectations about its future financial performance, including forecasts and statements concerning business trends and profitability that are forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The company’s actual results in the future may differ possibly materially from those forecasted in this call due to a number of risks and uncertainties.
Certain of these risks and uncertainties in addition to other risks are more fully described in the company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The forward-looking statements are made only as of the date of today’s conference call and the company undertakes no obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. With that, I would now like to turn the conference over to Michael McConnell. Michael.
