Thank you, Valerie. Good morning everyone and thank you for joining us on today’s conference call to discuss First Financial Bancorp’s Q2 2012 financial results. Discussing our operating and financial results today will be Claude Davis, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Frank Hall, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer.

Before we get started I would like to mention that both the press release we issued yesterday announcing our financial results for the quarter and the accompanying supplemental presentation are available on our website at www.bankatfirst.com under the Investor Relations section. Please refer to the forward-looking statement disclosure contained in the Q2 2012 earnings release as well as our SEC filings for a full discussion of the company’s risk factors.
