All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers’ remarks, there will be a question and answer session. (Operator Instructions)

Some of the statements we’ll make on this conference call including statements about the company’s plans, strategies, beliefs and expectations are forward-looking and subject to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ material from what is expressed in those forward-looking statements for a number of reasons including those risks and uncertainties disclosed in the company’s filing with the SEC and in its earnings release.

Now I’d like to turn the call over to Ms. Carole Buyers, Smart Balance’s, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations and Business Development. Please go ahead, Carole.
