At this time, I'll turn the call over to Mike.Michael J. BirckGood morning, folks. You haven't heard from me on one of these quarterly investor calls for quite some time. The reason for my presence this morning is a sad one, undoubtedly known to all of you. Early this month, our CEO, Rob Pullen, lost his battle with colon cancer. This is a sad time for Tellabs as we deal with the consequences of Rob's passing and the challenges of a troubled industry.First, my personal thanks towards everyone who called or wrote to express sorrow at Rob's death. I know that many of you knew Rob personally and are as saddened as we at this turn of events. But we must go forward and there is much work to do. Tellabs' Board of Directors, together with the executive team, is focusing on the future and our customers and stockholders.
