Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Q2 2012 Flowers Foods Earnings Conference Call. My name is Grant and I will be your operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will conduct a question-and-answer session towards the end of this conference. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this call is being recorded for replay purposes.
Now, I would like to hand the call over to Marta Turner, please proceed.
Thank you, Grant. Let me apologize for the slight delay. We had a little bit of a problem with our service provider and our phone numbers, so we apologize for the late start. Our second quarter results as you know were released this morning and the 10-Q was also filed as well. If you need copies of those you will both the documents are posted on the Flowers Foods website. During the call we will use the PowerPoint and you will find that on the webcast listen page.
