Good day, everyone. Welcome to the KKR Financial Holdings, LLC second quarter 2012 earnings conference call. As a reminder, today's presentation is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the call over to Pam Testani. Please go ahead, ma'am.

Pam Testani

Thank you, (Doris), and thank you all for joining us for KKR Financial Holdings second quarter 2012 earnings call. I’m Pam Testani and I have recently joined the KFN team as Head of Investor Relations.

I've spent time with many of you in my prior role on the KKR IR team but for those of you I haven't met, I look forward to working together.

And Angela Yang, who has been working with our investors over the last year will be assuming some additional responsibilities related to KFN's SEC and investor reporting and I'd like to extend our thanks to her for contributing a great deal to building KFN's IR function.

With me this afternoon are Bill Sonneborn, our Chief Executive Officer and Michael McFerran, our Chief Operating and Financial Officer.
