Garland TuckerOkay, thank you, Sheri. And again welcome to everyone for today’s call. We are very pleased once again to have strong quarterly results to discuss with you. Before we get into the substance of today’s calls, I’d like to note that Brent Burgess, our Chief Investment Officer is unable to be with us as he’s traveling.Aside from Brent’s absence, we will follow our customary format which is for me to discuss some highlights for the quarter and then for Steven to provide more detailed information about our financial results and liquidity, our capital market’s activity and our investment activity during the quarter.At the conclusion of these prepared remarks, Steven and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.First, most of you probably saw that we increased our quarterly dividend to $0.50 in June which was a year-over-year increase of $0.06 per share or 13.6% over the second quarter of 2011.Obviously, we were very pleased with such a meaningful dividend increase and we’re equally pleased that our net investment income of $0.52 per share was once again comfortably in excess of our dividend.
