Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for standing by and welcome to the Global Ship Lease Q2 Earnings Conference Call. Joining us on the call today are Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer and Susan Cook, Chief Financial Officer of the company. I must advise that the conference is being recorded today, Monday 13, August 2012 and after the presentation, there will be a question and answer session and instructions given at that time. I would now like to hand the conference over to your speaker today, Ian Webber, please go ahead sir.
Thank you. Good morning everybody and thank you for joining us today. I hope you had a chance to look at the earnings release that we issued earlier today and have been able to access via our website the slides that accompany this call. As normal, slides 1 and 2 reminds you about the call may include forward looking statements that are based on current expectations and assumptions and are, by their nature, inherently uncertain and outside of the Company’s control. Actual results may differ materially from these forward looking statements due to many factors including those described in the safe harbor section of the slide presentation. We also draw your attention to the risk factors section of our annual report on Form 20-F, which we filed in April this year. You can access this via our website or via the SECs. All of our statements are qualified by these and other disclosures in our reports filed with the SEC.
