As a reminder, this conference call is being recorded for replay purposes. I would now like to turn the presentation over to your host for today, to Mr. Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations. Please proceed.

Bruce Burns – Director, Investor Relations

Good morning. I am Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations for Westar Energy. Welcome to our first quarter conference call. Last night, we filed our 10-Q and posted it along with the earnings release and supplemental materials on our website at westarenergy.com. They could be found under supplemental materials within the Investors section.

Some of our remarks will be forward-looking, so I will remind you of uncertainties inherent in our comments during this call or that we may have included in materials that supplement our release.

Commenting this morning will be Tony Somma, CFO; and Mark Ruelle, CEO. Other members of our senior management team are also available to respond to questions.
