Greg Salchow

Thank you, Andrew. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Spartan Motors second quarter 2012 conference call. I’m joined today by John Sztykiel, President and CEO of Spartan Motors and Joe Nowicki, the Chief Financial Officer.

I assume all of you has seen today’s earnings release on the newswire and Internet. In addition to our earnings release, we also have a press release concerning an order for 150 new Reach vans from UPS. This order was mentioned in our June 25, 2012 update on the Reach.

Before we start the call, I need to inform you that certain statements made today during our conference call which may include management’s current outlook, viewpoint, predictions and projections regarding Spartan Motors and its operations may be considered forward-looking statements under the securities laws. I must caution you that, as with any prediction or projection, there are a number of factors that could cost Spartan’s result to differ materially.
