Good day, ladies and gentlemen. All sites are now online in a listen-only mode. Please note there will be a question-and-answer session later on today’s conference. (Operator Instructions) I’ll now turn the program over to our first speaker for today, Cindy McCann, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead.

Gallo, President; Glenda Flanagan, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Jim Sud, Executive Vice President of Growth and Development; and David Lannon and Ken Meyer, our recently promoted Executive Vice Presidents of Operations.

As a reminder, all forward-looking statements on this call are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause the company’s actual results to differ materially from the expectations and assumptions discussed today. This may be due to a variety of factors that affect the company including the risks outlined in the company’s most recently filed Form 10-Q and 10-K.
