Thank you, Johnny. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Hatteras' first quarter earnings conference call. With me today as usual are the company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Michael Hough; the company's President and Chief Operating Officer, Ben Hough; and the company's Chief Financial Officer, Ken Steele. Also available to answer your questions are the company's Co-Chief Investment Officers, Bill Gibbs and Fred Boos.
Briefly, before I hand over the call to them, I need to remind you all that any forward-looking statements made during today's call are subject to risks and uncertainties, which are discussed at length in our annual and quarterly SEC filings. Actual events and results can differ materially from these forward-looking statements.
