Good afternoon, and welcome to the Atlantic Power Corporation Q2 2012 Earnings Conference Call. All participants will be in listen-only mode. (Operator Instructions) Please note this event is being recorded.

Barry Edward Welch

Welcome and thank you for joining us this afternoon. Our results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were issued by press release earlier this morning and are available on our website and on EDGAR and SEDAR. Financial figures I’ll be giving are stated in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.

Joining me on today’s call is Paul Rapisarda, our Executive Vice President of Commercial Development, and Lisa Donahue, our Interim Chief Financial Officer. As you may have seen during the quarter, we announced the appointment of Terry Ronan as our new CFO. Terry will be joining our team starting August 20, and will be on our next earnings call. To assist with the transition, Lisa will continue to be available as a consultant to the company, and I’d like to take the opportunity to thank Lisa for her many contributions to Atlantic Power during her time with us.
