Conan R. Deady



Thanks, John. Good morning, we have three matters to be voted upon today. The first thing we need to do is to confirm that we have a quorum; I received an affidavit from our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, certifying that the notice of annual meeting we sent all stockholders a record as of March 12, 2012. The affidavit and the list of stockholders entitled to vote at this meeting are available for inspection by any stockholder. As always, we have a representative from American Stock Transfer & Trust Company here today at the meeting. This year, Ted Wiener has been appointed to act as inspector of election.
