Thanks Rob, and good morning, everyone. Thanks for joining our call today. Our fourth quarter and 2012 results were released late yesterday and of course, you’ll found the release posted on our website in case you need a copy.
We do expect to file the 10-K on February the 24th and as a reminder, during the call today, we’ll be using a PowerPoint presentation to support our comments, and you can find that presentation on the webcast listen page.
Of course, as we begin I must remind you that our presentation today may include forward-looking statements about our company’s performance. Although, we believe our segments to be reasonable, those segments are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. In addition to the matters we will discuss during the call, important factors relating to Flowers Foods business are detailed fully in our SEC filing.
