I would now like to turn the conference over to your host for today, Mr. Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations. And you have the floor, sir.
Thank you, good morning. I am Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations for Westar Energy. Welcome to our year-end 2011 conference call.

They could be found under Supplemental Materials within our Investors section of our Website. Some of our remarks will be forward-looking. So, I remind you of uncertainties inherent in our comments during this call or that we may have included in materials that supplement the release.
