Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to North American Energy Partners’ Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Earnings Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Following management’s prepared remarks, there will be an opportunity for analysts, shareholders and bondholders to ask questions.
The media may monitor this call in listen-only mode. They are free to quote any member of management, but they are asked not to quote remarks from any other participant without that participant’s permission. I advise participants that this call is also being webcasted currently on the company’s website at nacg.ca.
