Thank you, Jim. To ensure the orderly conduct of the business of this meeting, the Board of Directors has adopted the order of business set forth in the agenda provided to each person as he or she entered.

Accompanying the agenda are the meeting procedures approved by the Board of Directors. We ask in fairness to all of those present that you please honor these rules. The three items of business for today’s meeting are: first, the election of four directors to serve until the company’s 2013 Annual Meeting or until their successors are elected and qualified; second, a non-binding and advisory vote to approve the compensation of the named executive officers; finally, the ratification of PricewaterhouseCoopers by the Audit Committee to serve as the company’s independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012.

The company has not received notice from any shareholders, as required under its by-laws, of any other matter to be considered at today’s meeting. And therefore no other proposal or nomination may be properly introduced by shareholders. On behalf of the Chairman, I now declare the polls open for voting at this Annual Meeting.
