And I’d now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Fletcher Chamberlin. Please go ahead sir.

Fletcher Chamberlin – Treasurer and Communications Director

Thank you, Elisa. Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. As the operator said, I am Fletcher Chamberlin, FEI’s Treasurer and Communications Director. With me today in our headquarters in Oregon are Don Kania, our President and CEO and Ray Link, EVP and Chief Financial Officer.

We have again posted some slides under the Events and Presentations section in the Investor Relations part of our website. We will refer to these slides during today’s call. We hope having those slides will make it easier for you to listen to our comments rather than just focusing on getting the numbers recorded.
