Thank you Amy. Good morning, everybody, and welcome to Spartan Motors first quarter 2012 earnings conference call. I'm Greg Salchow. and I'm joined today on the call by John Sztykiel, our President and CEO and Joe Nowicki, Chief Financial Officer of Spartan Motors.
I assume all of you saw the company's earnings release on the newswire and Internet this morning.
Before we start the call, I need to inform you that certain statements made today, during our conference call, which may include management's current outlook, viewpoint, predictions and projections, regarding Spartan motors and its operations, may be considered forward-looking statements under securities laws. I must caution you that, as with any prediction or projection, there are a number of factors that could cause Spartan's results to differ materially. All known risks, our management believes, that could materially affect the results, are identified in our forms 10-K and 10-Q, filed with the SEC. However, there may be other risks we face.
