Good morning. Welcome to Fulton Financial Corporation's Annual Shareholders Meeting. I'm Scott Smith, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of your company.
As Chairman of this meeting, and in accordance with the provisions of the bylaws, I hereby call the meeting to order and appoint George R. Barr as Secretary. The Secretary of the corporation has filed proof that proper notice of the meeting has been given and that a legal quorum is present. The meeting is now lawfully convened and ready to transact business.
The agenda for today's meeting is on the screen. I assume that those shareholders who are present will want their proxies voted -- to stand and to be voted as filed. However, if any shareholder has not voted or wishes to revoke his or her proxy and vote in person, he or she may obtain a ballot from the judge of election at this time. The polls will remain open for a few more minutes, and the judge of election will be available to help any shareholder, who wishes to vote in person.
The minutes of the 2011 annual meeting are available for inspection at the desk of the judge of election and may be examined by any shareholder during the meeting. We've asked Sally Robb [ph] to serve as judge of election. Ms. Robb [ph] has filed her oath with the Secretary of the meeting, and I hereby direct that it may be made part of the minutes.
