Presentation

Operator

At this time, I would like to welcome, everyone, to the Newcastle first quarter 2012 earnings conference call. (Operator Instructions) I would now hand the conference over to Ms. Ivy Hernandez.

Ivy Hernandez

Thanks and good morning. I'd like to welcome you today, May 10, 2012, to Newcastle's first quarter 2012 earnings conference call. Joining us today are Ken Riis, our CEO and President, Wes Edens, the Chairman of our Board of Directors; and Brian Sigman, our CFO.

Before I turn the call over to Ken, I'd like to point out that certain statements made today may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not statements of fact instead, these statements describe the company's current beliefs regarding events that by their nature are uncertain and outside of the company's control.

The company's actual results may differ materially from the estimates or expectations expressed in any forward-looking statements. So you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. I encourage you to review the disclaimers in our earnings release regarding forward-looking statements and expected returns and to review the risk factors contained in our annual and quarterly reports filed with the SEC.
