Thank you everybody for coming. We appreciate it. Just to let everybody know, we are webcast today, so when we get to the Q&A section, which we are going to hold to the end of the presentations, we want to make sure that if you can get a mike or something, so everyone else can hear your question that are in here. What a wonderful setting to be for our 65th Anniversary being listed on the New York Stock Exchange and our 125th Anniversary as a company serving customers. So, today is a big thank you to you as owners, investors, and lenders and analyst and specialists, we do appreciate all that.
So, with that welcome, I have to do this very important here. I've to read this word for word, but I am going to rely upon you, my Chief Counsel sitting right in the back there, so I am going to rely upon you to read this with some care and diligence. Remember, this is our Safe Harbor statement. We have forward-looking statements in the presentation you are going to have today. Just make sure you look at the K, we have a fresh K out, and look at the risk factors in there, look at the forward-looking statements in there, and make sure you understand, where we are as a company with those in mind and we would appreciate that. Also, remember, there is a non-GAAP measure or two, we try not to have very many, but we do have some in here, so you see at the end of the brochure that you've got nice reconciliations back to the GAAP numbers, please take a look at that and make sure you've considered those in your thinking and your analysis about the company.
