Hi, good morning. This is Abbe Goldstein. Thank you for joining us on our first quarter 2012 earnings conference call. During this call, management may make certain statements regarding their expectations and projections for NFP, which are forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current views and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from those contemplated by a forward-looking statement. We refer you to the risk factors described in NFP’s filings with the SEC such as NFP’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made and NFP expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.
