Malcolm Appelbaum

Good morning. I am going to read a brief statement and then hand it over to our CEO, Jeff Bradley.

Statements made by management during this conference call that are forward-looking statements are based on current expectations. Risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements can be found in Globe's most recent SEC filings and the exhibit to those filings. Jeff?

Jeff Bradley

Good morning. Thank you for joining us on the call this morning. I'm pleased to report that our fiscal 2012 was a record year for earnings.

Net income for the year was $54.6 million and EBITDA was $129.1 million. For the fourth quarter on a comparable basis net income increased 4%, and EBITDA was up 10% to $32.5 million versus Q3. These improvements coupled with our outlook for the future led our board of directors to approve a 25% increase in the annual dividend to $0.25 a share from $0.20 a share last year.
