Alexza ended the second quarter with cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and restricted cash of $26.4 million. We believe that with our current cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and restricted cash and our current expected cash usage, we have sufficient capital resources to meet our anticipated cash needs into the fourth quarter of 2012. Changing circumstances may cause us to consume capital significantly faster or slower than currently anticipated or to alter our operations.
I will now turn the call to Tom King, Alexza’s President and CEO, for a business update and concluding remarks.
