Steve Rathgaber – Chief Executive OfficerThanks, Mitzie and welcome everyone to our update on the second quarter. Cardtronics completed another solid quarterly performance with financial results up significantly over the prior year and comfortably in line with our expectations. The financial headlines include revenue growth up 30%, 12 of the 30 points are organic growth with nine of the 12 points being core organic versus three points of equipment sales. We continue to love a business model that delivers this kind of core organic growth in these economic times.Revenue growth was complemented by adjusted EBITDA growth up 20% and adjusted net income per share growth up 12% to $0.38 per share. Although organic growth number is strong, management is particularly pleased to have delivered earnings per share of $0.38 which allows us to match our impressive in the start first quarter results despite the ramping up of expenses associated with our healthy backlog of installations and a recent headwind from Visa interchange rate reductions that started to impact us in the second quarter.
