Thank you, Cameron. Good morning, everyone. Thank you for joining BRE’s first quarter 2012 earnings call. Before we begin our conversation, I’d like to remind listeners that our comments and answers to your questions may include both historical and future references. We do not make statements we do not believe are accurate and fairly represent BRE’s performance and prospects, given everything that we know today, but when we use words like expectations, projections or outlook, we are using forward-looking statements, which by their very nature are subject to risk and uncertainty. We encourage listeners to read BRE’s Form 10-K for a full description of potential risk factors and our 10-Qs for interim updates.
