Certain statements made during this presentation could be considered forward-looking statements. And these statements are subject to both known and unknown risks which should cause actual results to differ from those anticipated and I would also like to remind you that historical results are not necessarily indicative of future results and I would also like to note that certain non-GAAP measures will be used in this presentation such as EBITDA, FFO, AFFO reconciliations of which are provided in prior earnings releases and filings with the SEC and this overview is for informational purposes only and not an offer to sell, or solicit any securities affiliated with Ashford Hospitality Trust.

With us today, the management attending is Monty Bennett, our Chief Executive Officer; Douglas Kessler our President; David Brooks, our Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel; David Kimichik our Chief Financial Officer; Jeremy Welter, our Executive Vice President of Asset Management; myself and Deric Eubanks, who is Senior Vice President of Finance. Also I'd like to note that we have two additional members, [Taylor Montessy] who we met at the check in table, she is Monty’s executive Assistant and Andrea Welch who spearheads our Investor Relations department and hopefully you will have a chance to meet her. If not, please introduce yourself, she really is kind of the force behind our investors relations group.
