Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the second quarter 2012 Alliance Resource Partners L.P. and Alliance Holdings GP earnings conference call. My name is Erica and I will be your coordinator for today. (Operator Instructions) I would now like to turn the presentation over to your host for today’s call Mr. Brian Cantrell, senior vice president and chief financial officer. Please proceed.
Thank you Erica and welcome everyone. Earlier this morning we released 2012 second quarter earnings for both
Alliance Resource Partners or ARLP and Alliance Holdings GP or AHGP and we will now discuss those results as well as our outlook for the remainder of this year. Following our prepared remarks, we will open the call to your questions.
Before beginning, we will start with a few customary reminder. First, AHGP’s only assets are its ownership interest in ARLP, our comments today will be directed to ARLP’s results and outlook unless otherwise noted. In addition, please be aware that some of our remarks may include forward-looking statements that are subject to a variety of risks, uncertainties and assumptions which are contained in our filings from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission and are also reflected in today’s press releases from the partnerships.
