Thank you, Joyce. Good morning, and welcome everyone. My name is Carl Lundblad and I serve as Senior Vice President and Director of Strategic Planning and Investor Relations at Susquehanna Bancshares.

By now you should all have received a copy of the press release about our financial results for the second quarter of 2012, which we made available yesterday. You can find this in our other financial releases in the Investor Relations section of our website at Certain statements made during this conference call may be considered to be forward-looking statements. In particular, certain statements made on this call may include forward-looking statements relating to our margin and financial goals for 2012. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties.

The factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from expectations are detailed in the press release and in our SEC filings. Susquehanna encourages participants to refer to such filings including the Form 8-K filed yesterday containing our earnings release and our most recent Forms 10-K and 10-Q for a complete discussion of forward-looking statements.
