Okay, times running. So I think we'll get going. My name is Jim Kissane. I cover services stocks for Credit Suisse and it's my pleasure to introduce Pam Patsley, the Chairman and CEO of MoneyGram and with Pam is Alex Holmes who runs Corporate Strategy and Investor Relations. After the formal presentation, we'll probably have few minutes for Q&A here. And then there'll be a breakout session in salon G.
So, let me hand it over to Pam. Thank you, Pam.
