Thank you, Operator. Good afternoon, everyone, and thank you for joining us today. Earlier today we issued a press release announcing our results for Q2 and six months ended June 30, 2012. We’re pleased to report record revenues this quarter of $21.7 million but more importantly did we achieve these revenues profitably. Net income for the quarter was $490,000 representing the bet quarterly profit in company history. Volume increase, mix, operational improvements and favorable timing on shipments of certain customer orders drove improvements in gross margins which increased to 36% from 27% in the previous quarter and 24% in the prior year.
