Michael Fascitelli

Thanks, Cathy. Good afternoon and welcome to our first earnings call. There is quite a few on the phone, we are happy and delighted and that you all are joining us today. We’d appreciate your time and attention.

After my prepared remarks, Joe Macnow, our Chief Financial Officer will provide a financial overview and then we will answer your questions. We will end at approximately 2 PM. It has been a very productive quarter for us and we are making significant progress on the We Will statements made in these shareholders letter.

We have had substantial progress on simplifying the company and are committed to continue this. I would like to remind everyone that 80% of our earnings come from New York and Washington office and retails holdings where we have great platforms and great management teams.

Let’s start out by talking about asset sales. As we said in the past, we are exiting the mart business. In the second quarter we sold or contracted to sell four mart assets for $228 million, the L.A. Mart, the Boston Design Center, the Washington Design Center and the Canadian Trade Show Business.
