Thank you. Good morning everyone and thanks for joining us today. I want to take a moment to read the Safe Harbor statement before I go over the financial results of our first quarter. Ralph Scozzafava, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer will then follow with the discussion of the highlights of the quarter.
