Patrick Gallagher

Thank you, Claudia. Welcome everybody and thank you for being with us on our special call this morning – we appreciate it. We think it’s important that we go through a detailed review of our clean coal investments. Before I turn this call over to Doug Howell, our CFO, I want to be very clear about one thing. The punchline in this presentation is that we hope to generate cash from these efforts. If you look at Page 27, 28 and 29 of our presentation, you’ll see that the use of that cash will be put to use in building out our core brokerage and risk management enterprises.
