Good day, everyone, and welcome to the Interactive Brokers’ First Quarter 2012 Earnings Results Conference Call. This call is being recorded. At this time for opening remarks and introductions, I’d like to turn the call over to Ms. Deborah Liston, Director of Investor Relations. Please go ahead.
Thanks operator. Welcome everyone and thanks for joining us today. Just after the close of regular trading, we released our first quarter financial results. We’ll begin the call today with some prepared remarks on our performance that compliments the material included in the press release and I’ll keep the remaining time to Q&A.
Our speakers are Thomas Peterffy, our Chairman and CEO; and Paul Brody, Group CFO. I just want to remind everybody, the discussion might include forward-looking statements. These statements represent the company’s beliefs regarding future events that by their nature are not certain and outside of the company’s control.
The company’s actual results and financial conditions may differ possibly materially from what’s indicated in these statements. For a discussion of some of the risks and factors that can affect our future results, please see a description of the risk factors in our filings made with the SEC and I’d also direct you to read the forward-looking disclaimers in our quarterly earnings release.
