With that, it is my pleasure to introduce Macquarie Infrastructure Company’s Chief Executive Officer, James Hooke.James Hooke Thank you, Jack. Good morning to everyone and thank you all for participating in our earnings conference call this morning. I’ll focus on two key areas in my prepared remarks this morning. These are, firstly, our announced dividend increase and the prospects of additional increases in the future. Secondly, an update on the continued good performance of our businesses throughout the first half of 2012 and our updated guidance for the full year. As always, we’ll answer any questions you might have about MIC following my prepared remarks. First things first however. For those of you with limited time and multiple earnings calls this morning I’ll begin with a very short summary of our results for the quarter. Once again each of our four businesses delivered financial performance during the quarter that was consistently better than our expectations. The gas company generated strong growth in contribution margin on a 5.4% increase in volume of total debt sold including a 10% growth in the non-utility volume and continued strength in non-utility margins.
