I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations. Please proceed.

Bruce Burns

Good morning. And welcome to our second quarter conference call. Last night, we filed our 10-Q, it’s on our website westarenergy.com along with the earnings release and supplemental materials under the Investors section.

Some of our remarks will be forward-looking, so I will remind you of uncertainties inherent in our comments or that we may have included in materials that supplement the release. Commenting this morning will be Tony Somma, CFO; and Mark Ruelle, CEO. Other members of our senior management team are available to answer your questions.

Tony will offer highlights on the quarter, provide an updated on major projects and comment on financing activities and earnings guidance. Mark will comment on regulatory activities, and share a few observations on our operations and business trends.
