Good morning and welcome to the First Quarter 2012 Conference Call. With me this morning is Mike Van Handel, our Chief Financial Officer. I’ll go through the high level results for the quarter. Mike will then spend time on the segment detail as well as the balance sheet and our outlook for the second quarter.
Before I move into the call, I’d like to have Mike read the Safe Harbor language.
