I will now turn the call over to Martin McGlynn, President and Chief Executive Officer. You may begin.
Thank you, Monica. Welcome everybody and thank you for joining us today. On the call with me is Rodney Young, our Chief Financial Officer and he and I will deliver some prepared remarks. Rodney’s remarks will include a discussion on the financial results for the second quarter of this year, and then I will follow up with the discussion of some of the exciting activities going on at our company. And then as usual, we will open the lines for question-and-answer period.
