Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Valley National Bancorp First Quarter Earnings Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later we will conduct a question-and-answer session and instructions will be given at that time. (Operator Instructions)

I would now like to hand the conference over Ms. Dianne Grenz. Please go ahead, madam.

Dianne Grenz

Good morning. Welcome to Valley’s first quarter 2012 earnings conference call. If you have not read the earnings release we issued earlier this morning, you may access it along with the financial tables and schedules for the first quarter from our website at valleynationalbank.com.

Comments made during this call may contain forward-looking statements relating to the Valley National Bancorp and the banking industry. Valley encourages participants to refer to our SEC filings including those found on Form 8-K, 10-K and 10-Q for a complete discussion of forward-looking statements.

And now, I’d like to turn the call over to Valley’s Chairman, President and CEO, Gerald Lipkin.

Gerald Lipkin

Thank you, Dianne. Good morning and welcome to our first quarter earnings conference call. Valley reported first quarter net income of $34.5 million compared to $24.8 million in the prior linked-quarter. We are pleased with the financial results for the period although net income was negatively impacted by both non-cash trading losses and non-recurring State Bank merger charges. Alan will provide a little more color on each of those shortly.
