At this time, all participants are in listen-only mode. Later, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes.
I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Greg Risch, Chief Financial Officer. Please proceed.
Thank you, Shenell and thanks everyone for joining us today.
