I’ll now turn the call over to Joe Zakrzewski, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Amarin.Joseph S. Zakrzewski Thank you, Steve and welcome to everyone. I’m joined on this call today by Fred Ahlholm, our VP of Finance; Joe Kennedy, our General Counsel; and Steve Ketchum, Amarin’s President of R&D. On July 26, Amarin held a conference call regarding approval by FDA of our NDA for Vascepa. I hope that each of you had the opportunity to listen to that call. Because that call was so recent and included comments on a variety of topics beyond the NDA approval, I will keep today’s comments brief. Fred will then provide a financial results update and we’ll then take a few questions.
