Well, good morning everyone and thank you so much for joining us this morning. We’re pretty excited about this. This is the first Investor Analyst Meeting that we’ve had in almost five years, and we brought together some pretty exciting thoughts and I hope it will be worth your time and it give you some insights in areas that many of you’ve heard we speak many times so we brought some of those smart folks here.
Before I start, I want to just remind everybody that we may make some forward-looking statements. They will be made with the best information we have at hand. However, they may not turn out the way we hope and the way we think and for any further information, I direct you to our website where we have our filings and our other disclosures that maybe relevant.
So, let’s jump and look at the agenda. I am going to spend a few moments in the beginning really setting the stage for the talent that’s going to speak to you after this. I want to talk a little bit about our strategy for driving the business and growing the business which has rewarded us with some nice growth and performance over the last several years. But behind that, I really wanted to give our folks the opportunity to talk about those drivers in a lot more detail than we’ve had the chance to do previously.
