Turning to Slide 5, I am pleased to report improved earnings for both the fourth quarter and full year 2011. In the fourth quarter of 2011, we posted a 23% increase in diluted earnings per share adjusted over the same period in 2010. And for the full year, we posted about an 8% increase over the full year 2010. These favorable results are from the solid execution of our business plan.As for 2012, we are introducing guidance for diluted earnings per share of $3.35 to $3.55 with a midpoint of $3.45. Joe will have more to say on that in just a few moments.
