Please refer to the section entitled Description of the Business Risk Factors in Silver Wheaton’s annual information form which is available on SEDAR and in Silver Wheaton’s Form 40-F on file with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The annual information form sets out the material risk factors that could cause actual results to differ including the assets to control our mining operations from which Silver Wheaton purchases silver and gold with risks related to such mining operations and the risk of a decline in Silver and Gold prices. Lastly it should be noted that all figures refer to on today's call are in US dollars unless otherwise noted. Now I would like to turn the call over to Randy, our President and CEO.
