Good afternoon. My name is Candice, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Vectren Corporation 2011 Yearend Earnings Conference Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After our speakers’ remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) Thank you.
Mr. Robert Goocher, Treasurer and VP of Investor Relations, you may begin your call.
Thank you, operator. Good afternoon, and thank each of you for joining us on the call to review our 2011 results and 2012 guidance.
This call is being webcast, and shortly following its conclusion, a replay will be available on our website at vectren.com in the Investor Relations section. Late yesterday we released our yearend earnings and this morning we filed our 2011 10-K. Copies of our earnings release, today’s slide presentation and the 10-K can all be found on our website.
As further described in slide two, I would like to remind you that many of the statements made on today’s call will be forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from those discussed in this presentation. Carl Chapman, Vectren’s Chairman, President and CEO, will kick off today’s discussion by providing a few comments on Vectren’s 2011 yearend results, and then discuss our 2012 earnings guidance and supporting strategies.
