Jorge TitingerThank you, John, and good afternoon to you all. I’m pleased to have the opportunity to update you after my first full quarter at SGI. Before I begin I would like to welcome Bob Nikl who joined the company in May. I’m excited to have Bob with us as he has more than thirty years of experience in CFO and other finance roles. He and I worked together at Verigy where as a team we realized significant operational improvements and great results for shareholders. I’m looking forward to achieving some of the same successes with Bob and the rest of the management team here at SGI.
