Hi, good morning. This is Debbie Young, Director of Investor Relations for SCI. Welcome to our call today as we discuss our first quarter results. Before we begin, let me just walk you through our Safe Harbor language.
In our comments today, we will make statements that are not historical facts and are forward-looking. These statements are based on assumptions that we believe are reasonable. However, there are many important factors that could cause our actual results in the future to differ materially from these forward-looking statements. For more information related to these statements and other risk factors, please see our filings with the SEC that are available on our website.
