Thank you, Tracey. Good morning everyone and welcome to our second quarter 2012 earnings review.
As a reminder, this conference call is being webcast in company by a spy presentation that can found in the investor relations section of our website.

Now I'd like to point out the cautions regarding forward-looking statements on slide two of our presentation. Some of the information we present today as forward-looking and subject to certain SEC rules and regulations regarding disclosure. You can also find our cautions regarding forward-looking statements in the MD&A of our 2011 form 10-K and 2012 form 10-Q filings. We filed our second quarter 2012 10-Q this morning.
