Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. I am John Somerhalder and welcome to the 2012 Annual Meeting of our shareholders. As Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the company, I will preside at the meeting and Myra Bierria, our Corporate Secretary will serve as a secretary for this meeting.
I now call meeting to order. Our first order business is to determine whether a quorum is present and recognize the inspector of election.
A quorum exists when a majority of the shares entitled to vote are represented either a person or by proxy as of the record date of February 22, 2012, the total number of outstanding shares of common stock of the company entitled to vote was 117,199,306.
The total of 101,078,989 shares of common stock constituting approximately 86.25% of the outstanding shares of common stock of the company entitled to vote are represented at this meeting.
Each holder of common stock is entitled to one vote for each share of common stock held as of record, as of February 22, 2012.
Quorum of the outstanding shares of common stock is present or represented by proxy, and therefore I declare the polls open for voting and the meeting open for business to be considered a set forth in the notice of the 2012 annual meeting of shareholders and a proxy statement.
