Thank you, Katie. We’re pleased that 2012 has started out so well for CBL. Our results for the first quarter show continued progress in driving growth in our core portfolio. Occupancy increased 150 basis points in this time last year. Sales growth was particularly strong with a comp store increase of just under 6%. Lease spreads increased over 7% and same-center NOI grew by 1.5%.

We’re also laying the ground work for future growth at CBL sourcing attractive new investments to add value to our portfolio. Over the past year, we have made meaningful progress building our presence in the outlet industry, with two ground-up development projects, and our recent investment in two operating outlet centers. In aggregate, outlets comprise a small percentage of our revenues, but we are encouraged by the potential we see in that area.
