All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers’ remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) Thank you.

I’d now like to turn the call over to our host, Mr. Deepak Dutt, Vice President of Investor Relations. You may begin your conference.
