Please standby, we are about to begin. Good morning, everyone. And welcome to Portland General Electric Company’s Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Results Conference Call.

For opening remarks, I would like to turn the conference call over to Portland General Electric’s Director of Investor Relations, Mr. Bill Valach. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you, Anne, and good morning, everyone. I’m pleased that you’re able to join us today. Before we begin our discussion this morning, I’d like to point out that we have prepared a PowerPoint presentation to supplement our discussion today and we’ll be referencing slides throughout the call.

Referring to slide two, I’d like to make our customary statements regarding Portland General Electric’s written and oral disclosures and commentary. There will be statements in this call that are not based on historical facts and as such, constitute forward-looking statements under current law. These statements are subject to factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements made today.
