Let me now turn the call over to our CEO, George Scanlon.George P. Scanlon Thanks, Dan and good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us today. Our second quarter results built upon the momentum we generated in the first quarter of this year. Refinance volumes have been very strong, but we're also seeing an improving residential resale market as those purchase orders are up nearly 6% for the first 6 months of 2012 versus the same period in 2011. I will speak more specifically about the Title business after a brief strategic overview. During the quarter, we completed the acquisition of O'Charley's and the consolidation of O'Charley's into American Blue Ribbon Holdings. FNF now has a 55% owned restaurant group for a total cash investment of approximately $110 million with $1.25 billion in annual revenue, $65 million in current annual EBITDA and an expected $20 million in additional cost synergies. Our focus is on integrating the various operations, achieving our targeted synergies and moving the O'Charley's margins closer to those of ABRH.
