Let me point out that on page five of today's earnings release, we provided consolidated operations data and a reconciliation of adjusted operating cash flow or AOCF to operating income.
I would now like to introduce, Hank Ratner, President and CEO of The Madison Square Garden Company.Hank RatnerThank you, Ari. Our company delivered record adjusted operating cash flow for fiscal 2012, as we continue to benefit from the ongoing strength of our fully integrated Media, Entertainment and Sports business.On a full-year basis, total company AOCF of approximately $283 million increased 36% versus the prior year driven by improved financial results in all three of our business segments. We delivered this level of AOCF for the year despite a shortened 66 game regular season for the New York Knicks, a prolonged affiliate dispute with Time Warner Cable and the off season shutdown of the Garden and The Theater at Madison Square Garden as part of the transformation project.
