Well good morning and welcome to Energen Corporation's 2012 annual meeting of shareholders. Its great pleasure to have you in attendance here today at Energen corporate headquarters. Also want to welcome those who will be listening to this meeting live on the web. At this time, I would like to call the meeting to order. I am James McManus, Chairman of the Board of Energen and I will preside over this meeting. David Woodruff, General Counsel and Secretary of the Company will act as Secretary of the meeting.
On February 24th, 2012 the record day for this meeting. There were 72,115,736 shares out stock outstanding. We want to thank those shareholders who took the time to be here today in today's meeting. But of course most were not able to be at this meeting in person, but they have expressed their interest in the company by voting their proxies. The first order of business involves that voting procedure; I would like to introduce Mr. K.R Patel of Computershare Shareholders Services who has been appointed by the board to serve as judge at this meeting.
At this time I would ask all holders of proxies to identify themselves. The chair recognizes Mr. Woodruff.
