Okay, now I’ll turn the meeting over to Conan Deady who will conduct the formal part of the meeting and after that, I’ll give a presentation regarding our business, and then following that presentation the webcast portion of the meeting will conclude and at the end of the meeting our officers and I will be available to answer questions. Conan, please.

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.
