Greetings and welcome to the GenOn Energy Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Call. (Operator Instructions). It is now my pleasure to introduce your host Dennis Barber, with GenOn Energy. Thank you Mr. Barber. You may begin.

Dennis Barber

Thank you Claudia and good morning everyone. Thank you for participating in GenOn’s Conference Call. Leading the call this morning are Ed Muller, our Chairman and CEO; and Bill Holden, our Chief Financial Officer. Following our prepared remarks, we will have a question-and-answer session. Also in the room and available to answer questions are Rob Gaudette, our Chief Commercial Officer and Gary Garcia, the Treasurer.

In light of our pending merger with NRG we are suspending adjusted EBITDA guidance for GenOn and do not expect to provide the guidance while the transaction is pending. The earnings release as well as the slide presentation we are using today is available on our website at www.GenOn.com in the investor relation section. A replay of this call will also be available on our website about two hours after completion of the call.
